Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook

2 Answers

Hello, I have an acer aspire 5338 laptop and have started to have problems connecting to the internet. I am connecting through a wirless access point. My laptop connects to the router fine but seems to take forever to identify before it connects to the internet. I have to keep reseting the network adapter. This used to work fine but has just started in the last few weeks giving me problems. Any ideas?

    Hi, my wireless access point is working fine as i have another laptop in the house which connects straight away. I have checked the driver for my wireless adapter and it is up to date. I will try with a cable next before i change any settings.
    Thank you

I would reinstall any updated driver for the wirless adpator now if that does not help you might try lowering the security at your acess point to a 64 bit wep key to speed up connection identification.

Also you might want to hard reset your router as well.

Hi mac_tucker. In case you are sure the wireless access point is not the problem and you configured it propertly such as SSID, Security, Wireless band and rate, etc. I recommend you go to the acer website and under downloads get the latest driver or firmware for the wireless adapter. If that doesnt solve the problem. Try using a cable for a while and see if you have the same problems. If you dont have ANY problems using the cable, try different configuration options. Probably changing from WEP Security to WPA or WPA2. Change the SSID (dont leave the default name) and change the channel and see if that takes care of it. i hope this helps and dont forget to rate my answer. Thank you :D

No enternet access


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire.


Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver.

Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

Right click on your "internet" icon in the bottom right side of the screen, and click diagnose problems. This should work, if not, restart your computer. If this is a network you have connected to before this should fix you right up.

I can not connect to my wirless local net work on my acer laptop what can I do to fix the problem? ( I was have a problem with avg free and it wasnt allowing anything to work on IE8 so i unistalled avg...


This should be a simple fix, do the following below.
1) Go to start, run, cmd, OK
2) After Cmd opens type this:-
netsh winsock reset catalog
--press enter

3) and again after pressing enter

netsh intip reset reset.log

4) Reboot

You should now be able to access the internet and your router etc.
After doing this go through and set up a new network, WiFi connection, using the icon, in the system toolbar, bottom right, click on the ICON, Right click, and select "Connect to wireless network" Select your network, if asked supply the WEP/WAP Key, password, and login, now you should be able to access the internet, through the router.
Also on laptop, in fact ALL "Clients" ie: Anyone who connects to the router. MUST have a Computer Name, a Windows login password, have sharing enabled, They also must have DHCP & Zero Configuration disabled in services. go, START>>RUN>>services.msc (enter), when the services window comes up, scroll down to DHCP, and turn OFF, set to Disabled, on start up, then, scroll down to Zero Configuration,and stop that and disable from starting too. Now reboot.

Can I use my acer aspire one wirless with bthomehub2. I can connect with cable


Not sure of what your issue is,you can connect to the internet by cable/DSL but not to your home wireless network?,or another wireless network? either way most wireless networks ask for a user code or password.Does the network appear with an open lock symbol or locked.Even if it's your network you have to grant access.Good Luck.
