Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
Thank you for contacting Fixya. This is Anil.
I understand that you want to know if the Laptop has wireless capabality and if so, how to use it. I will be glad to help you with it.
I have checked my resources and confirmed that it has wireless capabalities. The best way to check if the computer can access to Internet wirelessly is to boot the computer to "Safemode with Netwroking", 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 (make sure wireless switch is Turned ON). If you are able to connect to Internet in Safe mode then the issue is with the firewall on you computer, contact the firewall manufacture or change the settings. If you are still unable to connect to Internet, then the internet setting are not correct, you may need to contact the ISP.
I believe the above resolution should resolve the issue, however, if the issue still persists, please contact us. We will be glad to help you.
Thank you. Have Great Day.
