Question about Acer Aspire 5050 Notebook
I bought my laptop and it worked fine for months. All of a sudden the wireless connection does not want to stay connected. It constantly disconnects and reconnects and even states that there are no networks available even though my Verizon wireless modem is less than 5ft away. Once I reboot though it will detect them, but will once again do it's disconnect/reconnect deal. Is there anything I can do to possibly fix this problem so that my laptop will stay constantly connected like its supposed to? Thank you.
lets start with reinstalling the wireless drivers / software on the laptop.
open device manager by rightclicking my computer and select manage.
on the left side select device manager
then on the right side, find network adapters, open it from the + mark
right click on the wireless adapter and select uninstall. Then restart the pc. The wireless will be reinstalled when you start up the pc again.
See how your wireless works, if there is no change go back and right click on the wireless and select properties, then click on the drivers tab. and click on update driver, let it look for a update online if asked. if it doesnt find a update
you can get the newest wireless driver from acer at this website
