Your best bet would be to purchase a wireless repeater or extender. With that position it just above the basement or right at the inside of the basement door. It will repeat the signal from your original wireless point of access toward your laptop. The ethernet PCI card will not help you in this case.

Acer enet management internet disconnected


That means that your physical ehternet conection is disconnected (not the sofware from Acer which just tells you and helps you get reconnected)


You need to check the following:

Go to Control pannel and open system and device manager.

LOOK CLOSELY for the ethernet card in the list: If you see a YELLOW QUESTION MARK on the ethernet card listed, then you need to do a virus scan and utility scan before reinstalling the driver for your notebook.

If you see no question mark, but it says "legacy ehternet", you would still have to reinstall the ethernet drivers that you get from acer website.

After you have done all that and nothing works, then you may need to either get a new motherboard for the unit or work around it by buying a pcmcia ethernet card for you laptop.

Hope this helps.

Is the acer as5517 series laptop using a pci express card for the internal wireeless card


The Acer, as with lots of other laptops uses a smaller, card interface called "Half Size Mini PCI". This is much smaller than the desktop specification PCI or PCI Express and is specific to laptop hardware.

I looked at a spare parts website to find you a part number and came up with this. Use this information to find a similar part based on your country.

Compatible Hardware: Aspire 5517 series (AS5517-5700, AS5517-5997)
Wireless Card details: Atheros AR5B95-H half size mini PCI wireless network card (Dual mode 802.11b/g)

Linksys N router drops signal


Its not dropping you because of the spectrums, it works on line of sight. If you are in a basement and your router is upstairs it has to go thru a floor and the strength is weakened. Go into your router and increase the signal strength. But you have to mod your firmware.

Here is a link to update your firmware.

Acer notebook wireless just connects when near to the modem...


The connection between the laptop's internal wireless antenna and its wireless card may been disconnected. Best to take it in to a computer shop for fixing. If you want to fix it, open the PCI-E cover on the bottom of the laptop, then reconnect the antenna wire. If that doesn't work, get it serviced.
