Hi,i think the problem is from the installation of the iphone modem application,probably there was an error during the installation or perhaps,you are missing something,here is a solution to the problem.
Firstly,ensure to uninstall the application on the laptop and re-install it,afterwards follow the stepwise instructions carefully.
STEP 1 Tap the "Settings" icon on your iPhone. This icon is a small picture of a gray gear.
STEP 2 Tap "General." Hit "Network" on the following page. Select "Internet Tethering" on the following page.
STEP 3 Move the slide switch to the "on" position next to "Internet Tethering."
STEP 4 Hook your iPhone up to your laptop with its USB cord.
STEP 5 Hit the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your desktop. Scroll up and select "My Network Places."
STEP 6 Right click on the iPhone icon that you find in window that appears. Scroll down and click "Enable." You are now able to use your iPhone as a modem to surf the web.
Thanks and take care

Hi,

It would be best to use a cable between the acer and the iphone, or bluetooth might be a better option.

The cable will be the best way, if you want wireless go bluetooth.

This works around the WIFI network issue your having.

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


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

    Hi,

    Remove power from the modem and the wireless router for 2 minutes, then plug power in to them and wait another 2 minutes. After they have settled down try reconnecting to the internet.





    Good luck.

    Acer aspire 9410, cannot connect to the internet using dial-up


    You have two different devices here. A modem and a wireless network adapter. Two totally different devices. It sounds like the modem quit working but the wireless network adapter still functions. I'm assuming that the modem is built it. If you absolutely have to have it you could buy a PCMCIA modem if your laptop has a PCMCIA slot to plug it into. You could also have a corrupted modem driver.
