I am trying to network my acer with windows vista to the desktop wireless router belkin 54g. My other two laptops worked after making the wireless connection secure but the Acer laptop will not go to any...
Have you verified the wireless card that is in the machine? (Are you certain there is one there?) Even if there is one inside it, the PC may not see it. Go to device manager (My Computer, Properties, Hardware tab, Device Manager button). Then look through the list to find "Network adapters", click the "+" to the left, and it will display a list of adapters present in the machine. Make sure there are no yellow caution symbols or other error icons in any area.
Then, if you can see a wireless card listed, right-click to view the properties. Please post back with the results, and the exact info regarding your PC and the wireless card if you need more help. Otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!
