Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

2 Answers

Wireless Router I have an Acer Aspire 5100-5337 and a wireless router from Linksys. Although it would show that the notebook is connected to Linksys, when I go to use the internet, it does not connect. I am unable to get into the internet. Any suggestions?

Re: Wireless Router

Thanks for your help. It was shutting the adapter down to save power. I unchecked that.

However, I dont know where the "Wireless Network Connection Properties" is located. There was a "Network and Internet".

But it is working right now.

I will let you know if I get into problems with it.

Also, should I add more memory? Right now, it has 512 MB. Thanks again

Wireless connection on my Acer Aspire 1640 will not stay connected - What needs to be done? Using a Linksys Wireless N WRT160N VZ

This really seems to be a prob specific to Acer models. I've owned 4 laptops and never had this prob until my first Acer. Only thing that seems to work is to restart in Safe Mode, run a self diag, and restart in Normal Mode. Works every time! Unfortch I have not found a permanent solution yet.

Acer aspire will not connect to wireless network

Does your home router have a password? The only thing I can think of doing is removing all the preferred access points from your wireless card's utility or windows (located at start => Setting => Net connections => Wireless => Wireless Networks.

Then add your home access point back.
