If your computer has wireless adpater then you do do not need any drivers to install the wireless. The wireless router should automatically detect the network. First check if your computer is detecting any networks. To do so, click on the wireless icon on your computer taskbar nearby to system time (bottom right hand corner), if you are able to see your wireless network, if yes, select it and click connect, once connected, open IE and try to access web page. If in case ou are not able to view any web page and connection remains active, I suggest you try to connect in "Safemode with Networking", to do so, restart the computer and as soon as it restarts keep on tapping F8 key, now select "Safemode with Networking" from the Advance boot menu. Try to connect to internet. If you are able to connect to Internet then the issue is with the firewall on you computer, contact the firewall manufacture for settings. If you are still unable to connect to Internet, then the Internet setting are not correct, you may need to contact the ISP.

Take both excuses out of the equation. Buy a wireless N dongle off ebay (you can pick them up dirt cheap).

Router would pick up dongle using it's own software (Acer's excuse) and would not know or care the make of notebook (verizon's excuse)

Laptop will not allow router to connect because software does not support. need to sownload drivers to laptop but cant find out how


You'll need to locate the manufacturer of the wireless device in your notebook.

If it is built-in, go to the notebook manufacturer's web site and download the latest drivers for your particular notebook model's wireless card. If your wireless card is a PC card that you purchased separately and slipped into a slot on the notebook, you'll need to pop it out and determine than manufacturer's name andmodel for the card. Go to the manufacturer's web site to download drivers for the card.

Download drivers that are for the OS used on the computer (Mac, Windows XP, Windows 7, 32 bit or 64 bit)

I hope this was helpful!

How to install wireless


First, do you have a wireless router? I am assuming the AT & T service is DSL (am I incorrect?).
For a wireless network, you need a cable or DSL modem, then that is hooked to a wireless router that transmits the signal. The laptop is then set up to connect to the wireless network that you have created.
When you buy a wireless router, there is normally a setup disk that will help you do all of this.

Just give a shout if you need more help.
