Question about Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop

1 Answer

My modem disappeared off my laptop, how do I get it back?

Last night I used the modem to connect to the internet and it worked fine. This morning there is no longer a modem on my computer. It does not even exist in the system hardware profile any more. It just vanished. Is there a way to make the computer know it is still there?

Hi,
Sometimes problems occur with the internet connections, which can be resolved by the users. If any such thing happens in future you can try the following steps to get back the internet connectivity (if the issue is at your end).
1. Restart the DSL Modem. This would connect to the internet afresh, which generally resolves the connectivity problems from your modem to ISP.
2. If you have a Router/ Switch as well, you may reboot them, if step 1 doesn't work.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

unplug the modem and wait 30 seconds. Modems remember the MAC address of the last device connected to them. If it was connected to your laptop and working fine, then it has stored the MAC address of your laptop and will only communicate with the laptop. You need to connet the router and unplug the modem to clear the memory, then plug it back in so that it stores the MAC address of your router.

Next,Go to control panel,network and sharing center.Look and see if the pc or laptop in question is on the same network,meaning home or public.

There must be a small reset button on your router. Hold it down for 30 seconds. Release it. wait for one minute. Now unplug the power and plug it back in. Wait for 1 minute.
Once you reset the router, it will come back to factory default settings.
You will need to reconfigure the router form the start according to your Internet service provider.

Cannot maintain wireless connection


Try manually add the network. If the problems continue, I would turn the laptop in for repair/replacement (if it under warranty).

Make sure you have the wireless icon on the taskbar lower right side. If it does not show connected, click the icon and search for wireless devices, you should see the router. connect to the router. Also make sure you have a solid DSL/CABLE status light on the service modem. BPCS
