Battery runs out fast


Many things can cause rapid battery drain. Ensure that you only have wifi enabled when you are using it, otherwise the phone will always be searching for wifi hot spots and this drains battery power. The same with bluetooth mode. If the phone is 4G capable, and it it turned on, it will search for 4G signals and use extra power. 4G uses much more power than 3G does, so if you don't need the extra speed, disable it when not needed. Lastly, if you are using your phone as a wifi hotspot for others, you are looking at definite battery drain there.

Cant connect to wifi because bluetooh is stuck running a prograhm


You can turn off BlueTooth by either going to Settings-->Bluetooth, or touching the BlueTooth icon in the Control Center (swipe bottom to center to bring up the Control Center).

Test your WiFi. If it doesn't work, double-click the Home button, locate the program BlueTooth is running, and swipe it to the top of the screen.

Test WiFi again. If it doesn't work, power down; wait 5 minutes; and power up your phone (if you don't see the white Apple icon when powering up, you did not power down properly).

Cannot unable Wifi


There are a couple solutions to this problem that many other people have claimed worked for them, here's a list of the most common solutions;
1. First the wireless button at the top of the keyboard didn't work even though when pushed an icon popped up saying it was "ON". The five bar wireles icon still had an X in it indicating no connection. I used Fn F8 and that didn't work at first either. However, I did FN F8 again and noticed a round icon pops up just below the rectangular F8 icon, and it says wifi on it. Mouse over that and you find it is another on/off button. I clicked on it, and the red x on the wifi icon went away and all worked again.
2 All I did was pull out the battery for 5 minutes and the wifi started working on the next restart.

My WiFi will only work when used with a cable to my usb port


Looks like your wifi is turned off.
Check its enabled on your router. search how to access it in google, its easy enough.
If you dont have a wifi icon in the bottom right hand side of your screen, turn your wifi back on try control panel, networks, you should be able to see if wifi is off and how to turn it on

I've used the internet but do not have free access, I know have a small blue icon at top of screen which looks like a 'blue dot with signal lines coming from it, which I cannot get to go away?! please...


Looks like your wifi is on and is set to the default internet option. Turn off the wifi first by going to the wifi icon in your menu and tapping the wifi circle in the middle.
To change the internet profile i.e. 3G go to menu/internet/settings/internet profiles and choose your preffered option, normally you will need to request internet settings from your network provider by sending a text.
The blue icon you speak of is tells you wifi is on this should go away once wifi is deactivated better to do this as wifi eats up the battery on this phone big time.

I disabled the wireless (wi-fi) using the shortcut key.now i want to access wi-fi but unable to start using the shortcut key..wht exactly happened? did the driver had been uninstalled or wht? plz tell wht...


It should toggle. I don't think the driver would get uninstalled. Usually it's a switch (on Acer) or a Fn (Wifi icon Button) that turns Wifi on or off.

You may have to search for networks by clicking on the signal bars on the bottom right part of your screen, in order to connect to the Wifi network that is at your location.

Hi

Thankyou for the offer, but I finally fixed it.

I searched high and low on the Internet and finally found a document that led me to believe it was WIFI problem. I reset (switched off and on) the WIFI receiver, and removed/replaced the battery in the remote control and hey presto. it worked and is still working.

My laptop won't connect to wireless internet unless it is running off its battery. As soon as I plug the laptop into a power source, it automatically disconnects from the internet and I cannot get it to...


It seems the two oval lights on the front of the Acer TravelMate 3003LCi are not only lights to indicate WiFi traffic, but also buttons to turn the WiFi radio on and off for security reasons. If you press and hold the left side button for 3-5 seconds it should turn back on the WiFi radio. Windows XP (and maybe other OS’s) have a power saving function that turns the radio off when not in use to save the battery, so you have to use the buttons to turn the radio back on. Seems like a pain in the @$$ to me, but it’s a clients laptop not mine so he will have to live with that.

I hope this helps someone so they do not have to go through the frustration of trying to figure out why the radio has been turned off.
