Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

2 Answers

USB Problems I bought a Acer Aspire SA90 roughly 3-4 months ago, i installed a BT wireless adaptor for me to be able to have broadband. Evrerything was fine untill last week when my computer froze and when it came back on i had a message saying 'USB device not recognized, one of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it.' I have looked at solutions for this problem, even replacing the same USB with a new one but it still comes up with the same message. It has also done the same with another of my USB for my Ipod. Please help! Thanks Emma B

Maybe you got inserted a wrong type of USB. Please read my post below:

The difference is speed. USB 1.1 and 2.0 connections are nearly identical physically, but USB 1.1 ports only handle a maximum throughput of 12Mbps (megabits per second), whereas USB 2.0 ports can support a throughput of up to 480Mbps. This allows USB 2.0 to compete with other high-speed external bus interfaces, such as FireWire (also referred to as IEEE 1394). Prior to USB 2.0, you would have needed FireWire if you wanted to capture video data directly from a video camera because USB 1.1 was too slow to capture audio and video in real-time.

What wireless adaptor would you recommend for Acer Travel Mate 212TX


SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION
First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A USB wireless adapter uses the same 3G mobile/cell phone network and can be separately or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses a wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with a DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD. http://www.fixya.com/support/r6165994-setting_up_broadband_connection

Well most only have 1 adaptor.

Look in ctrl panel system DEVICE MANAGER and see if there is more than 1. Also check that it is working properly and that some other item is not using the same port.

Update the driver from the internet and see if that helps.

My Acer aspire one was working on BT broadband wireless but now is no longer connected. I have tried re-installing but it cannot find the hub.


Most Acers use an IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does, you use XP and your router is using WPA or WPA2 (TKIP or AES) security then you'll need to update the driver by searching for it manually using the Custom button (Hardware) in Windows update (instead of Express). This driver is not part of XP service pack 2 or 3. In my experience if you don't update to the newest common form of home wireless security (WPA2 AES) then the older formats seem to become unreliable in the way you discribe

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.

ACER Aspire 150 Notebook


If the pc has a wireless LAN then what you only need to do is just that the pc will give you a pop up whenever its sees a network for browsing then you click on it if it is available for usage is going to prompt you and if not that means the network is secure but if at your house you did not have a network then you can get a USB doggle from any network manufacturer close to you and you will paying some penny to them and you will be given a driver for the installation ok then you will be free to use it anywhere but once the laptop is having WIFI then anywhere you reach and laptop prompt you a network is find then you can easily browse there.ok
