Hi there!

The Acer Aspire One is a miniature laptop that includes many of the same features larger laptops have. The Acer Aspire One is about the size of a diary and features an 8.9-inch LED LCD display, an 84-key keyboard, two built-in stereo speakers and Wi-Fi capability. Though smaller than most laptops, the Aspire One functions much like other computers. The Aspire One uses the Windows operating system, so it connects to a wireless network the same way that any other Windows computer does.


Instructions

  1. Click the "Start" menu in the bottom left corner of the screen.
  2. Click the "Connect To" option from the menu that appears. The "Connect to a network" screen will appear.
  3. Click on one of the networks listed on this screen to select it.
  4. Click "Connect" at the bottom of the window. You now have set up a wireless connection on your Acer Aspire One.
The network security must be established by you.

Hope it helps,
fossildude

How do I change the password on the kindle for the wireless network?


To add a new Wi-Fi Network:

If you don't see the network you want to connect to in the list of detected networks, you can add it by choosing "Enter other Wi-Fi network" at the bottom of the list of detected networks.
  1. Make sure you are within range of the network you want to add, and that you know the network name and password (if required).
  2. Press the Home button, then press the Menu button.
  3. Navigate to "Settings" by moving the 5-way controller down, then press the 5-way controller to select.
  4. Select "view" next to "Wi-Fi Settings" to display a list of detected Wi-Fi networks.
  5. Use the 5-way controller to navigate down to "Enter other Wi-Fi network" and press to select.
  6. Enter the name of the Wi-Fi network that you want to add.
  7. Enter the password (if required). Press the Symbol key to enter numbers or characters not present on the Kindle keyboard. You can continue to use the keyboard while the Symbol menu is displayed.
  8. Choose "submit." Kindle connects to the new Wi-Fi network.
If your Kindle fails to connect to the new Wi-Fi network, it will display an "unable to connect" message. You can try manually entering all the network information for the Wi-Fi network by choosing "set up network" when you see the "unable to connect" message. If you don't know the network information, try connecting to a different network, or contact the network's administrator.

To forget a Wi-Fi network:

You can tell Kindle to forget the Wi-Fi network you're connected to so that your Kindle doesn't connect to it automatically in the future.
  1. While connected to the network that you want to forget, press the Home button, then press the Menu button.
  2. Navigate to "Settings" by moving the 5-way controller down, then press the 5-way controller to select.
  3. Select "view" next to "Wi-Fi Settings" to display a list of detected Wi-Fi networks. You may have to wait a moment as your Kindle detects networks in range. The Wi-Fi network you are currently connected to displays the word "forget" next to it in the list of available networks.
  4. Choose "forget" to disconnect from the network.

To connect to a Wi-Fi network:

  1. Press the Home button, then press the Menu button.
  2. Navigate to "Settings" by moving the 5-way controller down, then press the 5-way controller to select.
  3. Select "view" next to "Wi-Fi Settings" to display a list of detected Wi-Fi networks. You may have to wait a moment as your Kindle detects networks in range. Kindle automatically scans for available Wi-Fi networks at periodic intervals. To rescan for available networks at any time, select "rescan."
  4. Select "connect" to connect to a network. If you see a lock symbol next to "connect," the network requires a password to connect.
  5. If necessary, enter the Wi-Fi network password, and choose "submit." Press the Symbol key to enter numbers or characters not present on the Kindle keyboard.
Once you are connected to a Wi-Fi network, Kindle automatically connects to it again whenever that network is in range. If more than one previously used network is in range, your Kindle automatically connects to the network that was most recently used.

Tip: Once your Kindle connects to a Wi-Fi network, that network displays "forget" next to it in the list of available networks. Selecting "forget" disconnects your Kindle from that Wi-Fi network and also prevents Kindle from automatically connecting to it in the future.

Acer aspire 4250 wireles problem (may due to adapter setting.


Connecting your Acer laptop to your home wireless network is fairly simple.
Before you begin you need to know the SSID broadcast name (Wi-Fi) network name and security passphrase (Wi-Fi network password).

Move the Wi-Fi switch to the "On" position.
Not all models have this switch.

Open the Windows Start menu and select "Connect To."
A list of available connections will appear.

Select "All" from the drop-down menu to view all available networks and connections within range.

Select the desired network and click "Connect."
Enter the security passphrase if prompted and click "Connect" again to join the network and gain wireless Internet access.

Windows 7 Acer AspireLaptop wireless

Wireless Internet is a convenient way to hook up multiple computers to one router without the mess of cords.

The router or 2-in-one (router/modem combo), must be set up through your Internet Service Provider and connected with either a DSL line or Cable.

Since most Acer laptops have built-in wireless, no additional hardware is required.
Turn on the laptop.

Move the switch located on the front of the laptop to the right, then let go.
The switch will go back to its original position.

Confirm that the wireless networking icon has appeared on the screen.

Right-click the wireless icon in the bottom right corner.

In Windows 7 this will resemble a small stair-step triangle; In Vista it looks like a tiny monitor.

Click "View available wireless networks."
It might also say "Open network and sharing center."

Wait while the adapter finds your wireless network.
Click to highlight the network and click the "Connect" button.

Enter the security password that you created when setting up the router (if applicable).
If you don't know or can't remember, log in to the gateway page specified in the user's guide.

Locate the "Wireless security" settings page to see if security is enabled.
If it is, type in a new key and enter the same number for the wireless network.

    MY SONNY ERICSSON X8 WHY I CAN'T GET THRU IN WIFI


    To connect to a WLAN via Wi-Fi™:
    1. From the Home screen, find and tap Settings.
    2. Tap Wireless controls > Wi-Fi settings.
    3. Mark the Wi-Fi checkbox. Available Wi-Fi™ networks are displayed in a list under Wi-Fi networks. The available networks may be open or secured. This is indicated by the icon next to the network name.
    4. Tap a Wi-Fi™ network to connect to it. If you are trying to connect to a secured Wi-Fi™ network, you are asked to enter the security key for that Wi-Fi™ network before you can connect to it. The Wi-Fi™ connection is displayed in the status bar once you are connected.
    Useful tip:
    • The next time you connect to a Wi-Fi™ network, the phone will remember the security key.
    • To enable Wi-Fi™ network notification of open networks, mark the Network notification checkbox.
    • To connect to another Wi-Fi™ network, just tap another Wi-Fi™ network in the Wi-Fi networks list.
    • To scan for Wi-Fi™ networks manually, press the Menu key and tap Scan. The phone scans for Wi-Fi™ networks and displays them in the Wi-Fi networks section.

    You can also try updating your softwares by going to the sites below;

    I purchased a new IPOD and I can not access the wifi from my Linksys wireless router.. I reset my Linksys router to try to solve this problem. And at first when the light was amber I was able to have...


    Resolution If you know there is a nearby Wi-Fi network, but you are unable to locate it on the Settings > Wi-Fi screen:
    • Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
    • If you are using a personal Wi-Fi network, verify the Wi-Fi router is connected to power and turned on.
    • Wi-Fi networks configured as "closed" or "private" do not broadcast the network name to Wi-Fi devices.
      • Join a "closed" or "private" network by tapping Settings > Wi-Fi > Other and entering the Wi-Fi network name, security, and password.
    After joining a Wi-Fi network, if you notice the signal strength is low or intermittent
    • Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
    • Check for any sources of potential interference.
    • Remove any cases or attachments on your device that could interfere with a Wi-Fi signal.
    If you are unable to access the Internet while connected
    • If you are using a commercial Wi-Fi network that requires a special login or subscription, see this article for more information.
    • If you are in a location with multiple Wi-Fi networks, verify that you are selecting the correct network.
    • Verify that the Wi-Fi network settings are correct:
      • Tap Settings > Wi-Fi.
      • Locate the Wi-Fi network you are currently using and tap ts1398_2.jpg
        blank.gif
    • You can configure network-specific settings, including IP address, DNS, and Search Domain settings.
    • Use "Forget this Network" to reset settings for this particular Wi-Fi network, including the password. This is also useful if you identify a network issue and want to prevent the device from automatically using this network in the future.
    • Use "Renew Lease" to acquire new IP address, DNS, and Search Domain information from the Wi-Fi network.
    • Note: If the Wi-Fi network uses MAC address filtering, you will need to add the MAC address to the access list for the Wi-Fi router. The MAC address for your device is listed as the Wi-Fi Address in Settings > General > About.
    If you are still unable to join a Wi-Fi network, or are unable to access the Internet while connected, try the following
    • Restart the device
      • Hold the power button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the power button to turn it back on.
    • Reset network settings by selecting Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Note: This will reset all network settings, including passwords, VPN, and APN settings.
    • iPhone only: If you continue to experience issues, consider turning off Wi-Fi and using the cellular data connection instead of Wi-Fi.
    Additional Information If using a Wi-Fi router at home, refer to your user manual/documentation to assist you with some of these suggestions.
    • Check the manufacturer's website for your Wi-Fi router for firmware or software updates.
    • Verify the Wi-Fi router can broadcast an 802.11b/g signal. If using a 802.11n Wi-Fi router, consult the manual/documentation for how to configure the Wi-Fi router for 802.11b/g compatibility.
    • If you are using multiple WEP keys on your Wi-Fi router, try configuring your Wi-Fi router to use only a single WEP key.
    • Try or resetting (or turning off and then on again) your Wi-Fi router. Note: If your ISP also provides cable or phone service, check with them before attempting this step to avoid interruption of service.
    • Disable wireless encryption or security on the Wi-Fi router to rule out encryption issues. If this resolves the issue, try using a different encryption or security protocol.

    Acer /connection problems wireless


    hi dear

    try this

    1. Before you attempt to use any Wi-Fi network, find out what the SSID, Channel, Mode and WEP key are. Some Wi-Fi locations do not require a WEP key. Many Wi-Fi providers have this information on their web site or when you purchase access you will be provided the information.
    2. Ensure you have a firewall program installed and running. This will protect your data.
    3. Start up your laptop and once booted, look for the Wi-Fi network icon in the bottom right of the screen.
    4. Click on the Wifi Connection icon on bottom right of screen and you should see a window that indicates connection, strength and duration. Click on the Properties tab.

    5. wirelessnetworkscreenbl.jpg

    6. The next window will show the type of networking card installed. Click on the Wireless Networks tab.

    7. 02ee437.jpg

    8. Once the Wireless Network Connection Properties window is open you will have two options depending on how you set up your laptop.
      • If you do not see any networks listed in Preferred or Available networks, you will have to manually add the SSID. Click on Add. You will have to enter the SSID and WEP key (if required). Click OK and you should then see the network you just added in the Available networks box.

      • 4d25eb5.jpg

      • If you see the correct SSID showing in the Available Networks, then you need to click on Configure in order to enter the WEP key if that is required.

      92752af.jpg

    9. In the next window, enter the SSID for the Wi-Fi network you want to access. Make sure you do not have CAPS lock or NUM lock while entering the information. If a network key is required, click on "Data Encryption and then enter the Network key you have been provided with. Again make sure you do not have CAPS or NUM lock on. Click OK when entered. If you have entered the key incorrectly a message will pop up and you will need to re-enter the key.

    10. fccfda9.jpg

    11. Next go to Start - and where it says Connect To click on that and you should see choices like in the graphic below. Click on Wireless Network Connection and it should work.

    34b0a7b.jpg

    There are occasions when the connection doesn't work, in these cases check your firewall software and make sure it allows you to connect to the Wi-Fi network. To check this, disable your firewall software and check the connection again. If you can connect with the firewall program disabled, you change your settings. If your firewall program is not the problem check the SSID and WEP key information that you entered. Both of these are case sensitive. If you had obtained SSID information from the Internet, check with someone in the establishment to see if the SSID has been changed.

    oke post in me back

    i hope this usefull for you


    thanks
