    I'm having the very same problem as usmc85_8. My other notebook computers work just fine via wireless. This (Acer) computer can only connect when directly connected to the router.

It helped some. I did find though that the ACER laptop will update the wireless device it has and now it shows the D-Link device in my connections box. I will only know if this has solved the problem when I reboot. Lets hope. TY.

PS My Acer 5520 has no switch of any kind in front.

First check in the device manager if you have the correct driver installed

second, make sure that the wireless device is enabled (for acer normally there is a switch infront)

The problem your experiencing is all about the settings of your wireless connection. You need to keep in mind that there are factors that affects the wireless connectivity like Physical Barries and Network Security. for physical barries example of these are wall, cordless phones, central heating device, Thread mills and othe devices using 2.4GHz signal for network security you need to know if the network is secured, we have WEP, WPA.WPA2 and Open or no security.

Make sure you know the settings of your router then connect your laptop to it. if it ask you the netwrok key or password access the wireless settings page of your router and look for the network key and make sure that your connecting to your router or network name (SSID).


Thanks for using Fixya.

Hello,

Try the Fn+F2 combination. This will turn on/off the wireless network. You should see the wireless connection icon on your system tray. Just double click on it and connect to your specific network.

Cant connect to my wireless network anymore???


NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller drivers may have messed up your network drivers , since your network card is broadcom or intel pro, and it is not there.

Try reinstalling the wireless lan drivers.

You can download the wireless network card driver from link below:

Select software and drivers

In there you find different wireless drivers, download and install them all, the computer will automatically chose the correct ones.

You will have to enter your wireless network key again after reinstalling drivers.

My Laptop stopped detecting wireless connections


Just double check that you have'nt accidently dissabled it by way of a shortcut key or switch on the front of the laptop in some cases. If not go to network connections, then locate your wireless network card and see if it says connected, if not right click and select connect. If still not responding, go to my computer>properties>hardware> device manager and go down the list to network adapters, click on it and see if there is an exclamation mark on it, if so there is a driver problem. If not right click on it, select uninstall, then restart your pc and let windows find it again and install drivers and try connecting to your network again.
