If your router is a BEFSR41 it does not have a wireless option on it. It is just a wired cable/dsl router.

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.

How can I connect the RMC30C1 Samsung Remote COntrol to my Samaung 8000 Series TV


No simple answer. I have the series 9 samsung.

Basically you need to connect the tv to the internet, and the remote control to the internet and then connect the remote to the tv. There are a few other ways but this is what I did for my Series 9 TV: Before you start check your wireless internet security number for your broadband router. If unsure check the instructions that came with your wireless router as you will need to type in the internet address and setup wireless security key, otherwise your exposed to other people using your broadband download.

Step One: Menu setting on TV go to PlugPlay- Network - set it up. To find Menu TV Control on remote, flick your finger right to left to scroll to new hidden screen - menu appears! Step Two: Test network connection, (you should set up wireless security (WEP/WAP) to match your broadband security key) Step Three: Services Tab/Setting icon/remote settings/network/wait until it finds network/select network/add security internet WEP/WAP Key - check IP Service Provider if unsure. When Remote is connected to the internet tap bottom right button to connect tv. Tab appears on the tv 'allow or not allow remote' select allow using the TV navigation button. Simple really. Mike
