Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook

1 Answer

I installed a new Netgear wireless router. My old G router didn't cover the whole house, so I got a N600 N/G router. My Acer 5610 hooked up the the old router with 128 bit WEP encryption fine, as did my other PC's and Laptops. Now my hard wired, and laptops with Vista work perfectly. The Acer with XP hooks up to the router, can share files and printers,.but It can't get on the internet... blanc_chat@yahoo.com

This could be a few things. all are simple settings.

If you can see other computers but can't get out, your acer needs the gateway ip number. If you are running DHCP this should be automatically set but you can also manually edit the IPV4 settings
TCP/IP and add the gateway as well as the other settings. The gateway is the ip# of your router that is connected to the cable modem or the dsl modem.

As long as you don't have the number range set you can fairly safely add any number in the allowable range. So you could edit the tcp/ip settings with something like the following:

adress: 192.168.2.25
netmask: 255.255.255.0
gateway: 192.168.2.1 ** insert actual addy of router.

DNS servers can be found on your isp's info page. You can use any dns server that will let you connect. Without the dns you won't get out on the net either unless supplied by DHCP.

Why is my wireless connection being so slow?


Check you have your cable modem plugged in to the WAN port, not the LAN port on the router.
The manual s here

If it is still a problem consult your ISP about the set up.

You connect the ISP modem to the main port on the Netgear router. You should now see a wireless network on the laptop.

Passwords / keys / paraphrases are located in the wireless part in the web admin to the router. Same thing for the user / SSID.

Netgear n600 software wont install says we dont have the right OS . We have windows xp


eh, that disc is just bloat ware anyway (you don't need it)
1) connect hard line to your router (that big phone line looking cord goes from port 1,2,3 OR 4 to your computer)
2) open your web browser (IE, chrome, safari, whatever)
3) go to "192.168.1.1"
4)should ask for username and password (use "admin" and "password" for netgears... "admin" and "admin" for cisco linksys)
5) go to your wireless tab
6) choose a name and type in at SSID then click "save settings"
7) maybe same tab or maybe under "wireless security tab" choose WPA WPA2 personal and choose a password and save settings again.
9) now hook everything up normal and connect to your new wireless network!

hope that gets you pointed the right way

My HP G60 laptop with Vista won't connect to Netgear router


Usually there are 2 types of wireless connections, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. Your laptop may not be able to connect to one of these connections, so it may be incompatible with your router. You can try buying a USB networking card (no more than $20). It will plug into one of your USB ports and should allow you to connect to your router. Hope this helps!

My Friend ,

Never buy Netgear. They design product so it won't work unless you pay more for technical support. They told me the technicians during the 90 day warranty are not good enough to fix problems, so you can't get solution until warranty runs out and you have to pay extra!
