Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Losing Wireless Connectivety, when charging.

When I use my wireless broadband (Sky Netgear) everything works fine. Over the past year I have never had a problem until now. When I plug in my battery charger it stops my wireless connection. I thought this may be something to do with a powersurge, but even having the power plug in before turning the laptop on doesnt work (as wireless doesnt work when the laptop starts up). Ive spoken to Sky about htis problem and they think its to do with my laptop, does anyone know what it could be?? cheers.

Try to plug in the power cable alone, do it without the battery and see if your wireless works.  If your wireless works without the battery, and works with the cable alone it may be a battery conductivity problem.

Is NETGEAR WNA1100 N150 Wireless USB Adapter - 802.11 b/g/n compatible with the Sky router?


Bascially, yes! That adapter uses all the current styles of acceptable communication, so as long as your computer can support it, the router will work fine with it.

Keep losing connection


hi there, since no one in your network is experiencing the problem, possible cause would be the wireless adapter of your laptop. try to reinstall your wireless network card driver and observe if you will be getting the same issue. if same issue occured, then you have to call your manufacturer for replacement of the wireless card

Dell Inspiron 1525 not connecting wirelessly to Sky broadband


If your wireless router is configured with SSID, encryption, MAC address filtering (if enabled) etc. then the Dell wireless card needs to be configured with these settings to allow it to communicate with the wireless router.
Check the settings on your PC's wireless settings, and configure the Dell the same way.

Wireless configure laptop


You may be getting a little mixed up; the SSID is the dispayable name of the router over a network and the code you may be refering to is the WEP or passkey for security. First go into your routers settings and ensure that the DHCP is enabled to automatically give the laptop an IP address. Check your laptop wireless adapter/reciever is set in the properties to obtain IP adress automatically. Turn off any encryption you have running on the router and restart both router and laptop. When laptop boots it should again find all the wireless networks in you locality, then click on your network and click connect. If all works fine go into router again and then set up security key and note whether it is an 'open' or 'shared' network access as you may need to input this into your laptop if it is unable to reconnect after the restart. Also if your wifi signal is relatively low, it will not allow a connection to the internet as it is unable to send data at a low signal rate. If you originally ran the router via an RJ45 network cable, you may need to clear the dns from your laptop, click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns and restart your laptop to give it a new ip address and dns address.
