If you're talking about the Release Candidate of Windows XP Service Pack 3, then proceed as follows:

First step, uninstall SP3 and see if the problem goes away.

If not, then please post the make and model of your wireless card as well as the wireless access point or router model number(s) and we'll go from there.

You should have downloaded drivers for your graphics, audio, LAN,WLAN and if required printer for Win 7 before you upgraded too Win 7. If you can, re-install XP+Sp3 and do the downloads that would be the best idea. An alternative would be to use a different computer and download the drivers. For reference, download all drivers for the new OS before you remove the old OS. Good luck.

Acer aspire 5310 Wireless LAN indicator light on windows 7


That sort of comes with a OS upgrade, in upgrades from XP to Win 7, I'm supprised that's the only thing that is a issue. I upgraded a old gateway (2005) from XP to Win 7 Pro N 64bit. and had some hardware issues to deal with. Consider yourself lucky. You can get use to it or search endlessly for a fix. Try the Acer forums, you may run across the issue.

Slow wireless connection


I think you can try to upgrade the firmware on the router.

Connect one compute to the router and download the firmware of the router.
Open the setup page and upgrade the firmware.

See How to upgrade firmware on the router

After upgrading the firmware reset the router and reconfigure it manually.
See if that helps you.

My windows xp home is slow on loading websites as compared to other machines on the same wireless. What could be the reason for this


There could be many possible reasons for your machine being slow loading websites:

- Do you have a lot of programs running in the background?
- Are you using the same browser as the other machines on your network?
- Does your computer have as much RAM as the other computers?
- Is your wireless adapter as fast as the adapters on the other computers?

Can you please tell me what is more reliable and better?


I'm afraid you need to clarify:
If you refer to (old) Specification 802.11 — it applies to wireless LANs and provides 1 or 2 Mbps transmission in the 2.4 GHz band using either frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) or direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS). you can compare with 802.11b (also referred to as 802.11 High Rate or Wi-Fi) — an extension to 802.11 that applies to wireless LANS and provides 11 Mbps transmission (with a fallback to 5.5, 2 and 1-Mbps) in the 2.4 GHz band. 802.11b uses only DSSS. 802.11b was a 1999 ratification to the original 802.11 standard, allowing wireless functionality comparable to Ethernet.
But as suggested by ricerz from Wikipedia:
IEEE 802.11 is a set of standards implementing by apple wireless local area network (WLAN) computer communication in the 2.4, 3.6 and 5 GHz spectrum bands. They are maintained by the IEEE LAN/MAN Standards Committee (IEEE 802).
You cannot compare 802.11 with 802-11b: 802-11b is an implementation of part of the 802.11 standard.
You can compare: 11a (using 5Gh band) with 11b (using 2.4 Gh band)
You can compare 11 b with 11g or 11n standard. and select according to environment.
As per my personal experience Industrial or hostile installation was frequently done using 802-11A (less interferences, 54 Mb bandwith) new N standard with a peak of 300 Mb is now changing the scenario.
New accessories: Boosters, external antenna, WDS protocol to bridge WLan router, and new long range Wi-Fi are continuously changing performance, results and configuration

Wireless not working


Be sure Wireless Lan feature activated on your PC (check user manual).
Get network params from your Roommate PC (Protocol: WEP or WPA? Security key or Passphrase? Radio Band"A B G or N)
Replicate same info on your PC.
OR try connecting to a free access point (no password required)
if you have one available in range: Right click on Wlan Icon on Systray select "View available wireless network" connect to any unsecure network OR to a secure network if you know password

Hai


Port forwarding only applies when you have a router.
You're on a PC with a direct link to internet.
So... there must be a software firewall, like the one in windows? disable it.
Try again...
I'm not familiar with nokia 5310... does it create a lan connection? or is just like some other regular modem?!
maybe your operator is blocking that kind of traffic.
