    I appreciate the advice however it has only just stopped reading well, I have used it succesfully for 18 months.

    We do share the modem in the house with a couple of other computers but never had trouble before.

    thanks again

    Bought the A100 for niece, college IT department reloaded XP, and now wireless does not work. NIC is fine. I'm looking at device manager, and assuming it's the 1394 Net Adapter? I just don't see the "view available wireless.." like I'm used to. Help! I have <24 hrs...Thanks!

You may have to connect the antennae for the wireless card. On my toshiba it is under the keyboard, it seems someone overlooked this small item during assembly.

On my other lapto it has an access door on the bottom,

With the computer facing towards you - on the right side, first switch there (looks like a slide) is the wireless (on/off) switch.

Next after that is to check if any other wireless computer is reading your wireless signal - for it could be your modem/router.

Try removing the power cord from the back of your modem and router and let it sit for 30 seconds to reset. Plug in your modem first and make sure it's fully loaded. Then plug in your router and wait 30 seconds to load and try again.

You can't use your laptop as a wireless router.
If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then -To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards and wireless adapters in all the laptops/computers needs tobe configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSLor cable modem.

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.

First unplug your router, then unplug your modem and for 10 seconds. Next plug the modem back in and wait it to reboot(on mine this a series of 4 lights that light up in sequence, when the 4th light stops flashing, reboot is complete). Finally plug your router back in.

"under the same modem" .. you mean connected to the same router?
if you are using an external USB modem, try a different cable -and keep it short. I can't think right now of any clear causes of this problem other than a bad USB (or too long) cable (which can cause exactly this problem).

possibilities.. could be a cordless phone, cellular, wireless mouse/headphones/controller, bluetooth .. many of these devices connect with their receiver regularly and use almost identical fequencies which interfere.

Doubt it is a network conflict -where someone else has the same IP address. You could try setting a manual IP address too..

good luck!
