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.

Acer ax5810 wireless problems


Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon. This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look ((())) Make sure its pressed on. The internet connection is located in the system tray in the bottom-right corner of the screen. The icon looks like a series of rectangles that increase in from left to right. Right-click the Wi-Fi icon and select "Connect to a network." You will see a list of available wireless networks. Wireless Acer laptop can be a massive boon to your productivity when it is working properly and a massive headache when it is not. When your laptop card begins to exhibit undesirable symptoms, such as signal dropping, you can avoid a hefty repair bill by performing at-home troubleshooting. The best solution is to merely reinstall the software driver, which refers to the program that the operating system uses to speak the wireless card's language.

Open your operating manual and look up the model name and number for your laptop. Navigate to the Acer Support web page (see Below) and click on the "Downloads" link. http://support.acer.com/ Input the model number of your laptop, click on the "Search" button, download the wireless driver file for your laptop model and save the file to your desktop. Open the "Start" menu, click on "Control Panel" and open "Device Manager." Open the "Network Adapters" menu, double-click on your wireless card, select the "Drivers" tab, click on the "Update Drivers" button and choose the desktop as the location to search for new drivers. Click "Next" to reinstall the driver, fixing your wireless woes.

Lost wireless capability


Why is there no lan? Did you somehow turn the wireless off? Are other computers able to connect to the wireless if so that means your wireless is probably off.

Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look on both sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

Some laptops will have a button to push that toggles the wireless. it might be located on either side or front or just above the keyboard.

If no other computers are able to connect then go to the wireless router and unplug it for 30 seconds, then plug it back up. If you have a modem and a router, you only want to unplug the wireless router.

M trying to activate my wireless connection for my acer x1200 do I need a disk or can I press certain buttons to activate the wireless


You should be able to see there might be an antenna on the back of your computer which is part of the wireless network adaptor. I checked the specification of your computer and did not see wireless card included. You may need to buy one internal wireless card or a USB wireless card to use wireless feature. You will need to install the driver and configure it to use a wireless access point on some of the wireless cards. Usually you can turn on wireless by using network connection or using the connect to item in the start menu if you are using Windows Vista.

I have an acer aspire 5715z/5315 ihave lost my wireless conection how do i switch my wireless on and off i carnt seem to find the butten


Without knowing the operating system I can tell you this much: go to Control Panel>Network Connections>Local Area Connection>Properties then view the adaptor configuration settings to see if Radio On/Off is a selectable option. Many laptops do not have a physical on/off switch.

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

http://www.home-network-help.com/vista-to-connect-wireless-network.html

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)

I am trying to network my acer with windows vista to the desktop wireless router belkin 54g. My other two laptops worked after making the wireless connection secure but the Acer laptop will not go to any...


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!

I just bought a 4720. Iy has windows vista. I also have an old Toshiba sattelite with windows xp. To connect to the internet the toshiba works every time. The new acer sometimes does but mostly does not....


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).

We have an Acer 3650 laptop loaded with Vista. The wireless connection has dropped off and we don't know how to get it back - can you give me an easy to follow instruction on how how to do this? Thanks.


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.


PS - you can download the manual here: http://www.retrevo.com/search/v2/jsp/downloadPage.jsp?doc=caf09f1c3e92ebda8a9d9dcd8625b7f0&q=Acer+Aspire+3650

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.
