Acer Aspire 3620 wireless disaster

I just got a (used) Acer Aspire 3620 laptop. I cannot connect it to my router wirelessly however, because it tells me that it simply cannot connect. It doesn't pick up any wireless networks and when i try to set one up manually it tells me that my wireless card is somehow disabled. I need a full list of ways to enable my wireless card. It's physically in the computer, it's just somehow beeen disabled and i can't find out how to re-enable it.

I have tried the Fn key and theres several switches i dont really understand on the front of the laptop..I'm so confused. I've right click disable/enabled the wireless connection thingy, and disabled windows firewall and i'm still not picking up my wireless router. I enabled wireless on my router and everything, my roomate can connect fine on his laptop, it's just mine.

Hi,
Another thing you could do is go to My Computer and right click it then go to hardware tab and then go to de4vice manager and find your wirelesss card and check if it is enabeled, usually with Acer aspires it has a setting where it will disavble it when it isn't connected to the power socket.

Hope this helps :)

God Bless

I just used recovery disk to restore back to factory setting for acer aspire 7741Z. Now it won't recognize my wireless router


To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I have a acer aspire 5735z and cannot connect to my new adsl modem, telstra ( internet provider) told me to ring acer, will the acer company tell me i need a new drive and will i have to pay for it??? this...


Is your Telstra/Bigpond ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router?
If the ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router and your laptop does not have a wireless card, then you have two options to connect your laptop to the ADSL wireless router/Internet -
1. Purchase a PCMCIA wireless adapter and insert it into the PCMCIA slot in your laptop. One of my favourites is made by Netgear.
or
2. Purchase a USB wireless adapter, the only disadvantage with this solution is, it uses a USB port and if your laptop has only one USB port. This is a problem if you need to connect other USB devices. Then you also need to purchase a 4 port USB hub to give you additional USB ports.

Acer Aspire One will not connect to wireless router


Most Acers use an IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does, you use XP, and your router is using WPA or WPA2 (TKIP or AES) security then you'll need to update the driver by searching for it manually using the Custom button (Hardware) in Windows update (instead of Express). This driver is not part of XP service pack 2 or 3. In my experience if you don't update to the newest common form of home wireless security (WPA2 AES) then the older formats seem to become unreliable in the way you discribe

Aspire 6930 wireless button not working


Without any wireless networks available, using your computer wirelessly is most pointless. If you want to set up a wireless access point in your home you need a wireless router, connected to Internet.

Acer Aspire won't Connect Wirelessly Even with Full Strength


do you have security on your wireless network, password etc. like WEP, WPA, WP2 and the likes. that would be the first thing you need to check, second is the type of wireless card and router you are using, on the laptop you might have a wireless N router and a wireless N card on your laptop which might require higher security. you'll need a WPA2 - personal for the key. that you can configure your wireless router manufacturer. hit me back.

Unable to get the wireless driver for my acer aspire 3620


go to acer's website and click on the support section. you will have to pick your country. you can then choose your model. once you choose your model, you can choose the drivers. their website is not really setup well for knowing what drivers you need. you can also use one of several driver software tools that will check your system and tell you what drivers are out of date and then download them for you.
