532h wireless


The Acer Aspire One is an inexpensive laptop computer that runs the Windows operating system. The computer does come with a built in Wi-Fi receiver, giving you the ability to connect to a wireless Internet network, when available.
However, if you are having trouble connecting to a wireless network, you must troubleshoot the network connection to determine exactly what is causing the problem with the Internet.
Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.
If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.
Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.
Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.
Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.
Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire.
Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.

Restart the computer.
The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.

also
Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon.
This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look (((·)))
Make sure its pressed on.
The internet connection is located in the system tray in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
The icon looks like a series of rectangles that increase in size from left to right.
Right-click the Wi-Fi icon and select "Connect to a network."
You will see a list of available wireless networks.
Wireless Acer laptop can be a massive boon to your productivity when it is working properly and a massive headache when it is not.
When your laptop card begins to exhibit undesirable symptoms, such as signal dropping, you can avoid a hefty repair bill by performing at-home troubleshooting.
The best solution is to merely reinstall the software driver, which refers to the program that the operating system uses to speak the wireless card's language.

Open your operating manual and look up the model name and number for your laptop.
Navigate to the Acer Support web page (see Below) and click on the "Downloads" link.
http://support.acer.com/
Input the model number of your laptop, click on the "Search" button, download the wireless driver file for your laptop model and save the file to your desktop.
Open the "Start" menu, click on "Control Panel" and open "Device Manager."
Open the "Network Adapters" menu, double-click on your wireless card, select the "Drivers" tab, click on the "Update Drivers" button and choose the desktop as the location to search for new drivers.
Click "Next" to reinstall the driver, fixing your wireless woes.

How to troubleshoot my advent4211c for it to connect to a wireless internet network


First turn wifi on using functions keys (I think Fn+F11). A little icon will show at the bottom right task bar which will have a picture of a pc monitor with a red X symbol. Right click on this and select View available wireless neworks. Once you have that, you will see what you can connect to and simply connect. Please remember that you will always have to turn wireless on using the function key everytime you start your laptop again because for power saving it switches it off everytime you turn your laptop off

How do i enable my acere enet management, its saying that its off..... its a Acer 5315


This is one for anyone familiar with the Acer eNet Management software. It consistently connects to wireless networks besides my own. The "Auto" profile is unchangeable, so I created another profile, and put my network in the "WLAN perferred list", but everytime the computer restarts, it selects the "Auto" profile instead of my own, and connects somewhere else. Searching on other help forums, the solution I've found has pretty much been to ditch Acer eNet Management and use another managment software, like the one build into Windows. I don't mind doing this, but I simply can't fathom that the people who developed this software didn't include an option to change the default profile. If so, I think I've just lost all faith in my fellow software developers. But alas, after hours of googling and reading manuals, this seems to be just the case.

The only info I can find is that it "automatically uses the best settings (changes profile I assume) based on location". This would seem to indicate there somewhere there exists a setting mapping certain locations to profiles. How the heck its supposed to know what location you are in (home, office, etc) without you telling it (scan Wifi networks maybe?) is odd, but even so, since this particular computer never moves, there has to be a way to have it always use a certain profile, even it means I have to map this profile to a "location". These obviously are not the "best" settings for me since it connects to my neighbours unsecured wireless, instead of my secured wireless. And it doesn't just sometimes not select my connection, it ALWAYS doesn't select my connection, even though it's 5 bars vs 3 on the other connection.

I also went into "Settings" in eNet Management and deselected the "Switch Networks Automatically" and "Allow Acer eNet Management to connect automatically to an open wireless network" (which are profile independent so they stay deselected) but IT STILL DOES.

I think I just needed to get that off my chest, but if anyone has other solutions besides disabling eNet Management, is it possible to control what profile it selects on boot?

Thanks very much!

Ubuntu 8.10 - acer aspire one 150-Ab wireles not working


Ahhh, Ubuntu. You may need to go online and find wireless drivers that will work with your wireless card.

On an unrelated note, OpenSolaris has an option on it to download all of the compatible drivers for your computer when you first hardwire it to an internet connection, so if you keep having trouble with ubuntu, you could always try switching over to that.
