Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

1 Answer

No Wireless Connection

We've got wireless connection at home but this wireless connection does not show on my computer. I've been able to access this before, but its disappeared all of a sudden.
The strange thing is that i'm able to see other networks in the area.
Is it likely to be a problem with my network or my computer.
I use an acer aspire 3000 series

    Just bought a new Sony notebook with Vista Business--it sees all of my neighbor's connections but not mine! My other PC's all have XP and are all fine.

    couldn't connect to the wireless connection

    plz i need a solution

    That did not help! As I mentioned, I have 2 PC's with XP Pro, an HP printer all connected to the router, AND 1 laptop with XP via wireless and an Apple Power Book, both are wireless! The XP "saw" my wireless (and my neigbors) immediately, and I had a Vista HOME that worked, BUT I bought another notebook with VISTA Business and it ONLY sees all of my neighbors connections and NOT mine which is less than 2 feet away!!

I have installed Tenda W301A access point in my home. Only one PC can connects to the access point. If i try to connect other computer, its shows limited connectivity.

I assume you mean there is no internet connection except for one PC. You cannot connect an access point to the internet and distribute the internet access. For this you need a router.

AP does typically also not have a DHCP what would allow several clients at least to connect to each other.

How to connect your PS3 to the internet

In this guide I will go over the steps you need to take in order to connect your Ps3 to the internet either wired or wireless.

Wireless Connection
-Your home router should be configured for wireless and you should know your wireless routers security information. Make sure an Ethernet cable is not connected to the PS3.
-Turn on your console and select Network Settings under the Settings option in the main menu.
-Select the "Internet Connection Settings" tab and then select Yes when prompted.
-For the installation type select "Easy"
-Select "Wireless" when prompted for your connection type.
-Select "Scan". Your system will scan and show all available wireless access points within range.
-Select your home access point from the list.
-Select your security settings and enter your encryption key. Save your settings
Make sure to select Test Connection to make sure the connection is working properly.

Wired Connection

You will have the same steps as a wireless connection, except once you select "Easy", you will be prompted for your wired connection settings. Normally, in a home environment, you are using DCHP and the IP address as well as DNS information is all obtained automatically from your router.

Be sure to select Test Connection afterwards

Ok. You should now be connected to the internet. Enjoy!

Wireless Internet is not showing on the computer.

First power off the D-Link for 15 secs, reconnect the power and then reboot your computer. If your computer cannot connect to the D-Link and the Internet then -
I suggest you reset the D-Link back to the defaults and configure it again.

Press and hold the RESET button at the back of the routerwith the power ON until the LEDs flash at the time the release the RESETbutton.
Connect a LAN cable from the D-Link to your laptop/computer's LAN port, openthe browser on your laptop/computer and enter the D-Link's configuration URL..
The default login = admin
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default password.
You can now configure the wireless settings. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop withthe router's wireless settings.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I would like to know when it say laptop with built in wireless. Does that mine i already got internet service on it. Or i have to buy USB modem.

Hello Blac,

All the laptops available in market have built in wireless 802.11 b/g/n or 802.11 b/g/n Bluetooth® wireless networking. It means that you can access the internet via Wi-Fi or through Wi-Fi hotspots. In wireless connectivity you do not require the wired connection to access the internet. In home you can connect the laptop via wireless connection using the home networking router available in market. The advantage of wireless connection is that you can use the internet in your home anywhere with in 100 meters of range with proper wireless signals. You will require to get the internet connection from the ISP(Internet Service Provider).

Do I need a modem to connet my wireless acer aspire one to the high speed connection I have at home?

What you need is a wireless router. Your high speed internet connection at home might have a wireless router built into it, but some don't. What kind of internet connection do you have? what's the model of the modem you have. If you're not sure, just list the model numbers of all of the devices you have running.

Cannot get onto internet

disable the firewall on control panel.
check all the properties boxes on the network
connections and make sure firewall is disabled.

access the router setup and make sure that VCI is set to manual
and that you enter in the settings yourself (eg: 0,38 for aol broadband). Don't leave VCI, etc on auto, the router can't handle it.
