Have you Set up the Wireless ?
In Windows, Go Start - Control Panel - Net work Connections - Right click Wireless Conection - then to the top center tab Wireless Networks - near the bottom of this, Click ADD
- in the top slot (SSID) type in the SSID of your Wireless network e.g. BTHome then in..
Network Authentication - choose Open, Shared or WPA or WPA2-PSK (Whichever your Router supports - further right is BETTER)
then in the slot underneath, if Shared or Open chosen choose WEP
If you Originally chose WPA or WPA2-PSK now choose TKIP or AES again the rightmost one is better.
Now in the last two slots - Type in your Network Key.(same as the Routers) Hint, A Notepad document with the key in it, allows Copy and Paste into the authentication slots - (especially if it is 26 digits long...)
Click OK to go back to Wireless Networks Click on Advanced and make sure Access Point is selected - click Close and then OK to close the Properties window
Go back to Network Connections -
double click on your Wireless Icon and it should say Enabling... In the left most panel go to View available wireless networks and you should find e.g. BTHome is top of the pile.. and it shows it is Connecting or Aquiring...
once connected start your browser and confirm you are able to connect to the Internet...

How to connect acer as5920 to internet


You can connect to the Internet using a cable or DSL modem and connect it to your computer using a network cable or a USB cable.

Basically you need to see what the Internet Service Providers offer in your location. Beware of the costs of the various plans they offer in broadband speed, their download limits and the penality for exceeding the limits etc.

Then read the following info to decide what type of Internet access you require.

If you want to connect to the Internet using a wireless connection then read this.
What you need first is to install the wireless driver for your wireless card in your computer. If you don't have one you need to purchase a wireless card.

Wireless connections to the Internet can be achieved by several methods and it depends upon the method of delivery by the Internet Service Provider in your location.
The most common is by DSL and cable, the modems that are used with DSL and cable connection can have a built-in wireless router. Your computer will require a wireless card to connect to the modem/wireless router and the range is restricted to approx. 100 ft depending where the wireless router is located within the building.

The laptop's wireless card can be a built-in device or a plug-in device eg a PCMCIA card or a USB device. and these can also connect to a wifi hot spot in locations such as McDonalds. Star Bucks etc.

There is another method that can connect into the Internet that uses a USB wireless device that connects to a G3 network, bacically a type of mobile transmission and the device is locked into a specific Internet Service Provider. This method gives a wider mobile range (even across states) of connecting to the Internet but usually at a higher cost.

When you decide which method you choose, you need to consider setting up your wireless network securely to prevent unauthorized access.

Acer 5920 does not work with sandisc 1gb memory card


Your Minolta camera uses file format, which is not recognized by PC and vice verse. When you insert, PC can't read it, and asks to format. But when it is formatted for PC, your camera can't read it. Try to format it in camera, if it's not possible, then get a new memory card and use USB cable to copy images.

Wireless connection


What router brand/model do you have. Is it set up to broadcast it's SSID? Has encryption been enabled on the router?

Have you used Device Manager to make sure the new wireless card is operating properly.

I hope you'll answer these questions and let me try to help before you rate this...

Mac won't recognise network


Based upon the way you worded the message, you were trying to get the Mac working wirelessly? The description of how you were trying to set up your network (SysPref\Net\BuiltInEthernet) is for WIRED connections, not wireless. If you are running OSX and you have a built-in wireless adapter, use System Preferences\Network\Airport choice to set up for wireless connections. If you are trying to use the wire either because you don't have a wireless card or it is not working, check to make sure that the cable is good...maybe hijack the cable that you know works for your PC and test it. Please let me know if I am on the right track to solve the problem.
