Atheros Wireless connect problems

Im trying to get on the internet using the wireless (It is switched on). When i double click the wireless connection icon in the tray, the screen comes up and says that i have at least 3 wireless networks available, including the one i have hooked up to my pc which serves my hp laptop. i type in the same network key i used to get my hp up and running, hit connect, and nothing happens. the screen drops, but there are no prompts, no error displays, nothing. i go back to the tray to check if i am connected, and it says 'one or more wireless connections are available.' ive also gone into the advanced menu on the wireless network connection screen, and have tried to configure my network using the info i got from my d-link router software, and that does nothing either, no errors, nothing. when i go and check my network connections through the start menu, under wireless network connections, it says 'wireless connection unavailable.'

What do i do?

Your wireless devices are not configure to the right value. Start the wireless network wizard in your desktop computer.(Start- Control Panel - Network and Internet Connections - Setup a wireless network for a home or small office) Follow the on-screen instructions. After finishing, run the wizard in the router and then run it in the devices that you want to connect to the network.

Try switching the way you connect the wireless. On your laptop there are 2 different ways to connect, one using the the client application that goes with the wireless card, and the other way uses windows to manage and connect to the wireless. Switch them out. If you are using Windows, then use the other or vice versa. Open the software that came with your wireless card it should be on your desktop or in your program list. Click Start/Programs and look for it. For example it might be something like Atheros. Open it and look for a place or check mark on something that says: Let This tool Manage the Wireless, or Use Windows Zero Config to Manage the Wireless.

Cannot the wireless internet setup


Hi kschmerer,

I understand that you are not able to setup the Wireless Network Connection in your Computer.
To fix this issue, please make sure that the Physical Wireless Switch on the Computer is turned ON and then try connecting the Computer to the Wirelss Network.

You can locate the Physical Wireless Switch on the front side of the Computer. Please move the switch toward right side to turn it ON.

Once the Physical Wireless Switch is turned ON, please try setting up the Wireless Network Connection.

If you are not able to to connect to Wireless Network Connection after switching on the Physical Wireless LAN Switch, try using the Wireless Switch Setting Utility.

To enable the Wireless Network Connection using the Wireless Device Switch Utility, please double-click the Wireless Device Switch icon on the right corner of the Taskbar. Then in the open Wireless Device Switch window, please click to check the box next to Enable 2.4Ghz Wireless LAN.

This should fix the issue.

Please post back if you have any questions or require further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Wi fi connection


Try to check on the device manager if the wireless adapter and the ethernet adapters were installed properly. If it appears with a questionmark, uninstall it and try reinstalling it without the ethernet cable connected.

If you are using Vista system, after installing the adapters, go to the network connections and just click on tcp/ip then click on properties. Exit from the window by clicking ok until all windows will be closed for the network connections. Reboot your pc and try if you can obtain a connection.

Networking Problem


By local network do you mean using a wired connection or a wireless connection? I gather you mean with a wire.

The following link is to a PDF page listing the lan drivers from acer for an Aspire 3680 --

Drivers Link

The second and third entries on the list both appear to be wireless adapter drivers for built-in hardware (atheros or broadcom). Are you sure the driver you have loaded is the correct driver?

To determine which if the two may be suitable for your machine try the following

Click Start and right mouse click My Computer and select properties

Select the general tab and click on device manager

find your wireless adapter probably preceded by a yellow question mark (?)

double click on the wireless adapter entry

get the name at the top of the general tab and
the click the details tab and record the
device instance id value

Report what you found back here in a comment.

Hopefully the name will contain atheros or broadcom of not I hope I can lookup the device instance id string to determine the manufacturer of the wireless adapter.
