First make sure the Wi-Fi connector didn't get accidently turned off.

On the front of the computer, (right in the midde) is the wireless button, Press to enable/disable it. Try that first.

How do i stop vista from saving public wireless connections? i can't get dialog box to change settings. vista sp2 on toshiba laptop.


Open the Network and Sharing Center by clicking on the connection icon in the system tray by the clock. At the bottom of the window it will say Network and Sharing Center. In the Network and Sharing Center, on the left side of the window you will see a selection for 'Manage Wireless Connections' Click on that. A window will open with all the wireless connections that have been made with your laptop. Select the one you want and at the top it will give you the option to delete it. Vista automatically saves all public connections for use at a later date. When a new wireless connection is made Vista will ask you if it is a public or private connection and will give you the option of saving the connection. I hope this helps.

I am trying to connect to new acer laptop to my wireless network, but my acer empowering technology toolbar, located above my keyboard, does not seem to be working to allow me to connect to my wireless...


Hey

for this you gotta now the following:

1. ssid : this is the name of your access point (router)
2. key/passphrase: this is the network security key you configure your router with (if your router has a default configuration (the one that came with the device right out of the box which is not recommended) your key may be a blank key ... you simply don't have one set up.
3. the encryptation method: wep, wpa, wpa2. this goes again to how you have your router configured and if your don't have anything configured with your router in regards to encriptions (not recommeded) you may simply not have any encryptation that you need to select here.

important:
make sure your wireless adapter is working and is on:
your laptop may have a switch on the front to turn your wireless adapter on (i don't know what model of laptop you have so you may want to check the user manual that came with laptop to find the switch) or you may have to turn it within windows. (also check the user manual of your laptop)

now that you have the info needed and your adapter is on there are 2 ways to do this:

1. using your beloved acer empowering technology:
I found this that may guide you through the process of setting up your wireless connection
ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com/notebook/empowering_technology/acer_enet_management.pdf

look under the title: SETUP A NEW PROFILE and follow the instructions..

now if acer empowering does not work... you can try to setup your wireless connection with windows,

2. Using windows vista to setup your wireless connections:
I'm assuming you're using vista so here's a set of instructions with pictures you may want to take a loot at and follow

let me know how it went!
if problems.. post what you see and we'll try to give you hand. (please give as many details as possible)

Have you verified the wireless card that is in the machine? (Are you certain there is one there?) Even if there is one inside it, the PC may not see it. Go to device manager (My Computer, Properties, Hardware tab, Device Manager button). Then look through the list to find "Network adapters", click the "+" to the left, and it will display a list of adapters present in the machine. Make sure there are no yellow caution symbols or other error icons in any area.

Then, if you can see a wireless card listed, right-click to view the properties. Please post back with the results, and the exact info regarding your PC and the wireless card if you need more help. Otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!

You will have several problems to install Windows XP in a computer designed to use Vista. I personally don´t think it´s fair.
But your problem possibly is not related with the OS. Are you using a wireless router? If yes, the problem may be your 4720´s wireless adapter (probably internal). You can test it by using another wireless network (most malls, shopping centers, airport or hotels have avaiable public wireless internet access).

Wireless connection lost


948c84d.gif Make sure #4 is switched to the ON position.

Then, double click on the wireless indicator located on your taskbar, near the clock in the lower right hand corner of your screen. That will tell you if it "sees" any wireless connections available to it.

You can download the manual for this laptop here: http://csd.acer.com.tw/acer/URMUL1.NSF/1af87a750eeeb70f0825628f006e0bfc/a9b67d2003ba6822482571f8000f317e/$FILE/AS5680_5630_3690-ENG-OLM_0727.pdf

Let me know if this helps.

The battle: Acer Vs. Verizon FiOS


Verizon needs to apply a firmware update for the Atheros wireless adapter in your notebook. I work for Acer and I end up having to tell people this all day long. If you take this to a wireless router that is not from verizon you will have no problems with your connection. Maybe if enough Fios customers complain they will provide a firmware update for this.
