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

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

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.
