Acer aspire 4250 wireles problem (may due to adapter setting.


Connecting your Acer laptop to your home wireless network is fairly simple.
Before you begin you need to know the SSID broadcast name (Wi-Fi) network name and security passphrase (Wi-Fi network password).

Move the Wi-Fi switch to the "On" position.
Not all models have this switch.

Open the Windows Start menu and select "Connect To."
A list of available connections will appear.

Select "All" from the drop-down menu to view all available networks and connections within range.

Select the desired network and click "Connect."
Enter the security passphrase if prompted and click "Connect" again to join the network and gain wireless Internet access.

Wireless Internet is a convenient way to hook up multiple computers to one router without the mess of cords.

The router or 2-in-one (router/modem combo), must be set up through your Internet Service Provider and connected with either a DSL line or Cable.

Since most Acer laptops have built-in wireless, no additional hardware is required.
Turn on the laptop.

Move the switch located on the front of the laptop to the right, then let go.
The switch will go back to its original position.

Confirm that the wireless networking icon has appeared on the screen.

Right-click the wireless icon in the bottom right corner.

In Windows 7 this will resemble a small stair-step triangle; In Vista it looks like a tiny monitor.

Click "View available wireless networks."
It might also say "Open network and sharing center."

Wait while the adapter finds your wireless network.
Click to highlight the network and click the "Connect" button.

Enter the security password that you created when setting up the router (if applicable).
If you don't know or can't remember, log in to the gateway page specified in the user's guide.

Locate the "Wireless security" settings page to see if security is enabled.
If it is, type in a new key and enter the same number for the wireless network.

I would try:
1. updating driver
2. try connecting via Ethernet, if the issue is only wireless connectivity, try using a USB wireless network adapter, if that works means your lappy has a bad built in network adapter.
3. Are you locating laptop too far from router?
Good luck.

Acer aspire 7520 cant connect to LAN ( local only)


Hardwired to modem or router?
Router = check connection to router
(had a router die on me last fall - not AC supply)
IP should be 192.168.1.xx or 192.168.2.xx
(is standard)
Reset Router = reset hole on back - hold for 10 sec
Modem= same directions as router
(most modems work like single port routers)
(do reset of cable modem, I've had that prob too)
Using PPOE connection = check log on info
Took most of my home network apart to find it was the modem causing the problem - should've started there.

CANT GET MY LAPTOP TO CONNECT TO INTERNET


Are you able to change the SSID, create a new key, save then reboot the router? Then let the laptop find the new network. If this does not work, it may be time for a new router

Acer with Windows Vista does not connect to Internet


You're laptop needs to have a profile for the router. Go to Network and Sharing Center, Manage Wireless Networks. Please remove all the listed networks there. Now click on Add, then Add a Network in Range of this Computer. Select the wireless name of your router and connect. If it asks for a network key, please type your wireless security key then connect. That should do it.
