Wireless network adaptor not working

Hi all,
I have just bought a refurbished Acer one netbook AO531h.
The problem I'm having is that it will not connect wirelessly.
I have gone into device manager and found the network adaptor which is: Atheros AR5007EG and it has a yellow exclamation on it. When I click on to look at the status of the device it says it is enabled but ''This device cannot start'' (code 10).
Any ideas how I can resolve this? Thanks

if you can get access to the internet on another computer the above link gives useful info on troubleshooting error codes generated in device manager. If you can't get online try highlighting the device in Device Manager and right click for a list of options>click on update driver. If that doesn't work uninstall the device and windows should recognize and reload drivers for it when you reboot.

No device acer video capture

You can check if it (the camera) appears in Device Manager. Right-Click "My Computer" (or Computer in Vista and Windows 7), click "Properties", click Device Manager, then look through for your video/web camera.

From your description, the camera may be defective. If your computer is under warranty, I would contact Acer (or where ever you purchased it, depending on where you purchased it from store versus Internet and how long ago you purchased it, etc.) to get it fixed under warranty.

My Acer AO531h have a blackscreen probleme. If I turn my netbook on, but the screen stay's black. Please I need help.

According to me the problem is that perhaps you clicked on "projector only".This option is used when you have connected a projector to your laptop and then you will have several options.Perhaps you have chosen projector only. This mode will turn the screen off. So to solve this problem, turn on your laptop/netbook, then connect another screen(the screen of another pc) to your laptop via the vga cable or other way. Turn the screen of the pc on. If you see that the screen is good(that is it is showing you the windows, etc), press start/windows button and button ' P ' on your netbook keyboard. Then choose computer only.If not solved, let me know on . Be sure to include the problem in the email. Dont forget to rate my answer.

I wish to connect an Acer wireless optical mouse to this Acer netbook

Thank you for using FixYa

Yes the wireless mouse will work with the Netbook just plug in the adaptor and give it a try. That was the first thing my wife did with her Netbook was to get a wirless mouse and then I got one for my notebook. I especially like the scroll movement. Actually most generic Mouse will probably work on it too.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

I bought 2 Acer Aspire one netbooks and I can't get either one to connect to wi-fi. They show strong connectivity to the wireless network, but no internet?

you are seeing it strongly connected to the ROUTER---try unplugging the router for a few minutes and plug it back in----Does the netbook "SEE" the network? entered correct ssid? Is the wireless switch enabled on the netbook?

Acer can't connect to wireless network

Given the Acer sees the network, the times I have been frustrated connecting a new computer to a wireless network, it's usually been something very simple. I have forgotten one setting, transposed a letter or number. Go back through and make sure everything is exactly right.

I don't have wireless network on acer aspire4715Z

The Aspire 4715 comes with Wireless OPTIONAL. Your system obviously wasn't bought with a pre-installed wirelss card. If you want to go wireless, you will need to buy a wireless card/adaptor seperately.
