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.

HI,

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:

1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router usually http://192.168.0.1 else try http://www.routerlogin.com
3. Login to the router with the Username as admin and password as sky (unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)' or 'WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)' is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.

This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the routers' wireless network.

In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new password and click apply. You will then have to use the same password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

scan for the wireless network on the computer with the adapter and connect to the network.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Have you tried connecting the laptop in a different wireless network? Try changing the channel in your router and you may also upgrade the firmware of your router.

About wi-fi


Windows XP has a built in wifi configuration tool, previous versions of windows dont have this feature. But if you were to buy a wireless card it comes with software for wireless to work on all versions of windows from 98 - XP most if not all new laptops have wifi built in & that will be able to share your broadband connection through the netgear router. You can configure the laptop & pc to share files & printer between each other, easy way of doing that is by using the wireless network setup wizard which can be found in Start -> All Prograns -> Accessories -> Communications -> Wireless Network Setup Wizard.
