  • Right-click on "My Computer" and select "Properties"
  • Select "Hardware" and click on "Device Manager"
  • Find your wireless card under "Network adapters" and double-click it.
  • Verify that there aren't any auto power management settings enabled that might be shutting your card down prematurely.
Another thing to try is to simply shut down all your hardware - ie. your PC, your modem, your router, your laptop, etc. - anything on the network. Then power them back on in the following order: modem -> router -> PC (wired) -> laptop (wireless) and see if that fixes the issue.


If that doesn't work, you can try completely reinstalling the keys as follows:
  • Uninstall the TCP/IP protocol
  • If prompted, do not restart the computer now.
  • Delete the following registry keys:
    • [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WinSock2
    • [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WinSock
  • This time, restart the computer.
  • Reinstall the TCP/IP protocol.

    Did you ever tried the above steps in the same order? That is the most efficient and worked steps everywhere. I do not really think you have done a single step.

The Acer Aspire One is an inexpensive laptop computer that runs the Windows operating system. The computer does come with a built in Wi-Fi receiver, giving you the ability to connect to a wireless Internet network, when available.
However, if you are having trouble connecting to a wireless network, you must troubleshoot the network connection to determine exactly what is causing the problem with the Internet.
Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.
If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.
Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.
Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.
Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.
Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire.
Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.

Restart the computer.
The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.

Right-click the Wi-Fi icon and select "Connect to a network."

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.

My laptop (acer aspire 4930) wifi is not able to detect wireless networks. It has been working fine for 1.5 years but something has happened today that it is not able to detect the wireless connections.


Double check that the Wi-Fi didn't accidentally get turned off. There should be a button on your computer that turns it on and off or a fn key usually fn+f2. Try that first if that doesn't solve the issue try reinstalling your driver which can be found at the following site.

The wireless icon has vanished on my acer aspire one netbook and i cant get online


Go to Start/Settings/Network Connections. When the window opens right click on the Wireless Network Icon and select Properties. In XP there should be a check box to allow display of notification when connected. If some other OS, hold the right button down on the Icon and drag it to the task bar. It should drop an icon for showing the status.
Before doing all of this, is there an arrow to the left of the icons? If so, click on it see if the Icon is simply hidden.

Connecting Wirelessly on Accer Aspire One Notebook


TRY THIS:


call in your provider to change the ssid and the network key

[all computers will be disconnected]

and then try to reconnect them one by one to the new ssid or network name

this should resolve the issue

always make sure that the wireless properties are okay and the same as the router


also check the device manager: network adapters if they are properly installed and no errors on the icon for the adapters.
