If your laptop came with a "System Restore" disc, back up all your data first, then boot off the System Restore disc. That will return the laptop to the state that you initially received it in.

THE RESTORE PROCESS WILL WIPE OUT ALL YOUR DATA - so make sure you copy anything you want to keep to a USB stick, another computer, a thumb drive, or somewhere other than on your laptop.

How to stop the Wireless Adapter For droping The internet connection Every 1 minute


What are specifications you are using for your wireless network? B, G or N, WEP or WPA-1 or 2 encryption, etc.
If everything was working fine at the beginning and no one has changed any of the network settings then that indicates an issue on the laptop.
You can try to reinstall the driver by downloading it from the Acer website as a Windows Update could have installed an 'updated' driver that doesn't work properly.

I have a wireless connection but cannot open the browser. Another computer (laptop) is connecting fine on the same wireless.


If the Wireless Network Connection icon is at the bottom right of your Taskbar and has a red x, then right-click on the icon to bring up a pop-up window and in that window, left-click on View Available Wireless Networks. This will open a Wireless Network Connection window which will allow you to Choose a wireless network. If the window has the message "No wireless networks were found in range", then you will need to slide the spring-loaded switch at the right-front the netbook to the right momentarily and the message "Wireless LAN Enabled" should show in large green letters at the bottom of the screen. Then in the Wireless Network Connection window, left-click on "Refresh network list" item under Network Tasks. In about 10 seconds, a list of the wireless networks will be displayed which should include the name of your wireless access point (wireless router). Left-clicking on that list item will high-light it in blue. Now click on the connect button at the bottom-right of the window. If the list item has a lock symbol, a Wireless Network Connection pop-up will now show to ask you to "Type the key" otherwise for an unsecured or open access point, a connection should automatically occur without having to type any key. The Wireless Network Connection icon in the Taskbar should no longer have the red x and hovering the mouse cursor over it will show the Wireless Network Connection status. Hopefully, if this procedure has solved your problem, you should consider securing your access point to prevent unauthorized access of it. After securing, you will need to refresh the network list and then do a re-connect.

My wireless adaptor isn't working. I have an Acer travel mate5720 which has a switch on the front for blue tooth & wireless access. Bluetooth works ok but the Wireless adaptor won't i have checked in...


This model does have wireless. I had a similar problem a little while ago, I plugged the unit in to a wired connection, and on it's own, disabled the wireless adapter.
Go to start--> control panel--system-->hardware-->device manager

look under the "network adapters", there should be a wireless adapter or 802g something something, right click on this item and click "enable".

You should then be able to browse for wireless networks now.

first i would try moving the switch that is located on the front of the netbook to the right. Once the switch has been moved the wireless networking icon will appear on the screen indicating that it has been enabled.If this doesn't help my next step would be to remove and recreate the wireless network connection by doing the following:

  3. Right-click the wireless network connection, and click Properties
  4. Click the Wireless Networks tab
  5. Under Preferred networks, click the wireless network, and then click Remove
  6. Click View Wireless Networks
  7. Under Network Tasks, click Refresh Network List
  8. Under Choose a wireless network, click the wireless network to which you want to connect, and then click Connect
In Windows, there is a power mode setting for the wireless driver that may also help this issue. Follow the instructions below:
  1. Go to Control Panel, System, click the Hardware tab and select Device Manager.
  2. Click the + next to Network Adapters and double click on the Atheros wireless Network Adapter.
  3. Click on the Advanced tab, select Power Save Mode from the list on the left.
  4. Change the Value on the right to Off.
    The default setting is Maximum, which may cause issues similar to those described.
Check to see if this has resolved the connectivity issue. If it has not, the following steps may need to be completed.
  1. Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel
  2. Open Network Connections
  3. Right-click your wireless network connection, and click Properties
  4. Click the Wireless Networks tab
  5. Under Preferred networks, click the wireless network, and click Properties
  6. Click the Authentication tab, click to clear the "Enable IEEE 802.1X authentication for this network" check box, and then click OK twice if this doesnt help the computer may need service.

Wireless connection


that unit has a driver problem, for the usb or ethernet, you might be able to re-install the specific drivers on their web site, and retry it there, unless the wireless in pci based and the you have a driver problem there, if you can use the ethernet connection then it's usb or pcmci, try that, if that doesn't work you need a tech to look at it.
