Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

We have a new ATT uverse and wireless internet service. 3 computers connect and one laptop- Acer Aspire 4520 does not. It will connect to an unsecure network nearby, but our router does not see this computer and it gives a message that the adapter is not visible. The network shows up as available wireless networks but cannot connect. The device manager says the adapter is working properly. Network Diagnostics says the adapter is not connected.

Try to restart the pc if the network is reset. Also try to turn off/turn on the router so that the network will refresh for itself. Then observe both the device manager and the diagnostics if still has the same issue. Also, check your connections and make sure they are tightly connected to the ports. You can ping your router IP address by going to the command prompt. If you can ping your IP address, then try to connect your laptop to the network. You may switch LAN cable (blue cable) in between computers or switch your laptop location. On that you will determine if the problem is your router or your problem is in the computer. You may also uninstall/reinstall your wireless driver if symptom persists. Last resort is to refresh your laptop itself by shutting it down, removing the cables / battery , and then press and hold power button for 8 secs and then put it all back. You may contact Acer or your router provider if all else fail.

Acer E1-531 can connect to wireless but not through ethernet connection, amber light is blinking and green light is idle


Are you very far from wireless router? Also check which wireless signal is the strongest and if that is yours. Unsecured w/less are usually weak in residential areas. Again is your internet high speed?

Wireless not working on acer aspire 5551a


Connect to internet using ethernet cable and update wifi driver from makers site, if this does not work then buy a usb wifi adapter off ebay or from a local store, put it into usb port and install the driver from the disc supplied with the adapter and off you go (far cheaper than replacing the wifi card)

Wireless lan not working on my acer aspire 4520


The wireless feature (Wireless LAN) on an Acer notebook allows you to connect to available networks. This convenience allows you to use the Internet with network cables, modems or network installation. Acer laptops come with a wireless switch to turn the wireless feature on or off. Once you enable the wireless feature, your Acer notebook can connect to wireless networks within range.

Instructions:
1.Locate the Wireless LAN switch located on the front of your Acer Notebook. Move the switch to the right to turn on Wireless connections.

2.Right-click the network icon located on the system tray next to the clock. You should see a list of available wireless networks.

3.Select the network you want to connect to and click "Connect."

My computer doesnt want it connect to internet,, appear the connection icon but when the page try to open , it cant do


Please follow the steps provided below:

Q: Basic Wireless Troubleshooting
A:
Wireless Troubleshooting
The following steps will help determine if the wireless card in the system is functioning properly.
IMPORTANT:
Please go through all the troubleshooting steps. If the wireless card is functioning properly, please check the network configuration. Acer America can not assist with configuring the network.
Before you start:
  • Make sure there is a wireless router or wireless access point.
  • The wireless router/access point is plugged in.
  • Refer to the owners manual to ensure the wireless adapter is on (you can turn the wireless card on and off by pressing a clear button)
  • Contact the internet service provider to make sure ther account is active and the network is connected in a way that supports their configuration.
If the computer was working properly at an earlier time:
If the laptop was working fine, do a System Restore which rolls the system back to the last known working configuration. System Restore is located in System Tools under Accessories. Here is a link to explain the use of this feature:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;306084
To find the wireless network:
1. Click on Start winxpstart%20button.jpg then click on "Control Panel."
xpmenu.jpg 2. In the Control Panel window, click on "Network and Internet Connections."

xpcontrolpanel.jpg
3. In the "Network and Internet Connections" window, click on "Network Connections."

networkconnect.jpg 4. Once in Network Connections, right-click on the wireless connection then select "View available wireless networks"
5. If the wireless network is a secured network, please refer to the manual of the wireless router to make it unsecured for the purpose of testing the wireless network.
NOTE: Acer does not recommend leaving a wireless network unsecured and is not responsible for data accessed due to unsecured wireless networks.
6. If the wireless network is listed, the wireless adapter is functioning properly. If unable to connect to the wireless router, go through "Before you start" at the beginning of this article.
