How to connect the wifi to a acer aspire 5733z - 4851 laptop


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.

  • 2 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.
  • 3 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.
  • 4 Restart the computer. The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.

    Trying to connect my iPhone 4 to my WGT624 v3 router. My iPhone is detecting the network, but i'm getting the message "unable to join the network" .


    Hi chaps,


    I did two things to resolve this issue


    1. Downgrade the router to a lower version.If your router is Netgear WGT624 v3 use this link to downgrade your router


    http://www.davejackson.com/life/cant-access-wifi-with-ios-6-on-iphone-with-netge ar-wgt624v3-fix/


    (this help to avoid getting a errro message "Unable to join network")


    2. Reconfigure you Wifi network by going to setting ---->under choose a network---> others-----> Enter your SSID name (seen at the back of your router) ----->under the security tab selet the same encyrption standard as that of your router which you can see when you log in to the router (usually router IP 192.168.1.1) ---->setup ------>wireless setting----> security option. This one helps you to join your home wifi as soon as you enter your home.



    I hope this one works as it worked for me happy.gif

    Wlan driver problem in vaio vgn-cs21gn


    Hi...
    This is Nishit Jadawala from Ahmedabad, India. I am also having the same problem with my Sony Vaio VGN-CS21GN Laptop. WiFi was working perfectly in Vista but when I downgraded it to Windows-XP it started giving me errors that "Driver Not Found for the Device" I have downloaded all the drivers available on internet but nothing worked.
    Finally after 8 months of research on this problem, I came to know that there is a bug in the supplied Windows XP-SP3 Operating System. There is a file in Service Pack 3 that doesn't allow drivers to access the hardware of WiFi.
    The Solution is you will have to forget the bundled windows XP and upgrade your operating System. Right now better option is to go for windows 7. It dint even asked for any kind of drivers to load. WiFi is also working perfectly on it. The laptop has become more faster & smoother than in windows XP.
    For more queries, you can write to me on mail.squarez@gmail.com
    Thanks & Regards,

    Downgrade from Vista TO Xp


    Hi Bienana,

    Steps must be taken in advance. Laptops are different from desktops. They have proprietary drivers that need to be available for boot or bad things happen. For example the CD-ROM won't be there any more. Then how will you load anything?

    What you will have is a plastic rectangle that keeps asking for an operating system you can't install.

    First, create a boot disk.
    Second, create another boot disk.
    Test them both. Make sure the CD works.

    Now for some alternatives to formatting your hard drive.

    Click here for a site thats offering Windows XP recovery CD's to those Vista owners that want XP. The offer is good through July 31, 2009.

    Click here For the Toshiba site specifically for downgrading Vista to XP. It's a source for the drivers that inevitably don't get copied, what rights you have for which version and so on.

    Both sites will give you some important insight before you take the plunge.

    How to connect internet from other laptop


    If you are connecting to a WiFi Access Point from one laptop, and you know the encryption settings and the SSID (name of the WiFi connection) then you can plug that infomation into your other laptop WiFi connection page and you should be able to connect.

    The configuration is very similar to XP.. you just need the information to put in on the Vista..
