Fios Wireless Drops

I have the same problem where my wireless drops every few seconds. I tried to uncheck the v.6 that you suggested, but it still does the same thing.

    New to Verizon FiOS. XP laptops are screaming, but lone Acer 5220 Vista disconnecting and reconnecting every minute or so. I have turned off Acer Emanager, set rate to Auto and dropped v6 protocol. Still no fixie. I will say when it is connected it is hitting the upperspeed boundary. Will reloading the wireless driver get me anywhere?

There are certain routers that Verizon supplies that have a compatability issue with Acer computers running vista........The tech guy I talked to sat and used my pc as a guniea pig and figured out that if you drop the beacon rate from 100 to about 20 it will stay connected..........after I get more info on the numbers i will be sure to post them here.

Internal wireless is a hassle and does that on many models.
get an external pc wireless card and the issue will disappear.
you can run with both at the same time.
it fixed my issue for same system.

I have a HP G70 with an Atheros AR5009 WiFi adapter. I use an Apple Time Machine/Wireless router. My Macs stay connected to the router with no problem. My HP drops multiple times a day. All drivers are...


Hi, did you get this problem resolved? I am having the same issues but cannot seem to find anything to resolve. I have a hp g70 running vista. Sometimes the connection can be stable for hours but then other times it disconnects every few minutes. I know the router is working fine as I have 2 other laptops that never drop the connection and my ps3 and phone always stay connected as well. Thinking now that I have got to take it back

My wireless connection won't work


Those pieces if data come from your FiOS gear. On the bottom of the FiOS Wireless and network set, is a serial number, and associated with that is another number, call it your password, but together they are the profile and Password with which you gain access to the FiOS Network, to allow you to get out to the Internet.
Check all installation papers you got from Verizon, as that information should be there, or call their help line. They are usually pretty good in helping you and FiOS is not off-shore, so you will get a good response.

ACER 5720 WIRELESS CONNECTION PROBLEMS


can you pull up your router, I had this with an acer last week, I had set it up on my router then taken it to the clients house and it wouldn't work, the thing was that it never droped my router and was in the my network places several times. as soon as I realized that I deleted all of the routers and anything that wasn't supposed to be there and just went to make a new connection and bingo i worked. also don't forget the encryption key if you put one in you will need it to get on you network, good luck

ACER 5720 WIRELESS CONNECTION PROBLEMS


Sounds like a bad router or antenna. Try replacing the antenna or checking the connection of the antenna on the router. Have your ISP replace the router and the problem should go away.

ACER 5720 WIRELESS CONNECTION PROBLEMS


I have an Acer 5420 which had a persistent disconnection problem after startup, with either the wireless or LAN connection. It appears that the Microsoft network application would startup and make the connection, but seconds later the Acer Enet Management application would start, and its first act would be to disconnect from the Internet. Since the Microsoft network application provides every feature that I want, I choose to disable the Acer Enet Management.
  1. Following up on a hint from on of the posts, I went to Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt.
  2. At the command prompt window, I typed msconfig
  3. About a minute later (after Vista confirmed that it was OK to run this program, the System Configuration window comes up, where I selected the "services" tab
  4. Scrolling down the numerous services, I found "eNet service" and clicked the check mark to disable the service. Hit apply and OK, and restarted my laptop.
  5. The problem went away after that.
