It's more a browser issue, actually..

if you're on a wired connection or wireless, your laptop will let you know. Check in bottom of tray, to see that you're connected..

if so, go to browser(IE) and check Internet options/settings to ensure that you have active connections with those network options.

Yes, the mouse most likely uses Bluetooth to communicate with your laptop and is independent of your wired/wireless connection to the internet. The mouse should have come with an adapter that plugs into one of your USB ports. Plug it in and once the drivers load (automatically), your new wireless mouse should be working!

Where I can get the batteries changed and how much it will cost.


The batteries are hard to find in order to replace them, I would suggest purchasing a new one from wal-mart and swap the batteries and return the one you bought for a refund, Wal-mart will send the one your return to the factory for a repair anyhow so no harm.

I have a new laptop from wal mart and it say enter current password but i never had a password


When setting up windows the initial time it asks for a password for if you would like to set one. This should immediately follow it asking for a User name.

If the computer simply boots to windows and did not walk you through an initial setup then the computer may be used, in which case I would say return it to the store;

I have a Dell Dimension 3000 desktop, around 5-6 years old. It is connected to the internet through a cable modem then through a wireless router, but it is connected with a LAN line. If I try to connect to...


Sounds like the actual ethernet adaptor (hardware) may be out but first I would run a really good spyware and see if it is infected. This one works really great (see link at bottom) although, it is not free but you can download, installl and it will run scan and tell you if you have malware (which is why it will not connect). It only cost 30 bucks to purchase which is reasonable to take off the malware and get back online. Beats a techs fee.

If there is no sign of malware, then the hardware is out and you will need to replace. These can be purchased at Wal-mart for under 60 bucks. Hope this helps!

Aspire 5315-2153 wireless or not?


I bought the same Acer at Wal-mart and it IS wireless,,, Sounds like Acer gave you the run around. If you already had a wireless router, then why on earth would you think you needed to purchase another one??? even if Acer told you to. That just doesn't make sense. What kind of router did you have to begin with? (Make and model please) Are your other computer that you have on the internet connected with a cable? If so they are not wireless.

WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS


Hi,

I would suggest that you get a Wireless Router something like a LinkSys WRT54G. There other brands and models available. With such a WiFi router, you can still connect your old PC using the LAN/Ethernet and connect your new laptop without any wires. Most (but not all) would require that you run first the CD before installing the router.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Adding a wireless connection to an existing wired network


Go out to you local electronics store and purchase a wireless router , or Wireless Access Point (AP) , this way you will create a wireless connection by following the instructions given when you purchase the Wireless AP .

Basically when you buy the Wireless router or AP you just need to plug your existing Modem/Router into the WAN port on the Wireless Router / AP and then some initial setup to configure the wireless settings and then the appropriate settings inputted on your PC.
