HI there - Are you using windows to configure the connection?? I always suggest that you do becasue I find other 3rd party software isnt always as good / easy to use.

try going into your wireless settings

Start >> Connect To >> Show all connections >> Right click on Wireless network connection >> Click Wireless Networks tab

Ensure that "Use windows to configure my wireless network settings" is checked.

I have an acer aspire one laptop that will not connect to internet thru wireless connection. System shows that wireless connection strength is excellent but internet explorer cannot display webpage. ...


1.- Try to find the wireless card switch (or button). Look the wireless led indicator, must be on.
You should surf if the led is on.

2.- If not works, go to device manager and look to your wireless device and turn the switch on and
off again. Look if the device is accepted without any sign. If the device get any sign then you
have problem with your wireless driver. If no sign. Open My Computer and then open networks
or my network places, and try to access to any other computer you have.

3.- If the device is ok in device manager and the led indicator is on and you can access other
computer thru network places, then open Internet explorer, go to tools, then go to internet
options, then go to connections and there click on Lan settings. In the proxy section uncheck
the box. Restart your Internet Explorer and it must surf now.

Good Luck and remember to rate my answer.

I dont know how to connect to the internet


Hello,
1.Install your wireless network adapter in Windows XP with SP2. This process includes installing the proper drivers for your wireless network adapter so it appears as a wireless connection in Network Connections.

2.When the computer is within range of the wireless AP operating in your home or small business, Windows XP should detect it and prompt you with a Wireless networks detected message in the notification area of your taskbar.

3. Click the notification message. If you are not notified, right-click the wireless network adapter in Network Connections and click View Available Wireless Networks. In either case, you should see a dialog box with the name of the wireless connection.

4 Double-click your wireless network name. Windows XP will attempt to connect to your wireless network.

5.Because Windows XP has not been configured with the WEP encryption key for your wireless network, the connection attempt will fail and Windows XP will prompt you with a Wireless Network Connection dialog box. Type the WEP key in Network key and Confirm network key, and then click Connect.

6.If the status message for your wireless network in the Wireless Network Connection dialog box is Connected, you are done. If the status message for your wireless network in the Wireless Network Connection dialog box is Authentication did not succeed, click Change the order of preferred networks in the list of Related tasks. From the Wireless Networks tab of properties of your wireless network adapter, click the name of your wireless network in Preferred networks, and then click Properties.

7.In Network Authentication, click Open. In Data encryption, click WEP. In Network key and Confirm network key, type the WEP encryption key as configured on the wireless AP.

8.In Key index, select the key index corresponding to the encryption key memory position as configured on the wireless AP.

9.Click OK to save changes to the wireless network.

10.

  3. Click Connect to the Internet, and then click Next.
  4. Click Setup my connection manually, and then click Next.
  5. Click Connect using a broadband connection that requires a user name and password.
  6. In the Connection Name dialog box, type the name of the ISP. This becomes the name of the connection. Click Next.
  7. In the Internet Account Information dialog box, type the user name and password. Additional checkboxes allow you to specify whether this connection and its user name and password is available to all users (selected by default), whether this connection is your default Internet connection (selected by default), and whether to enable the Internet Connection Firewall on the connection (enabled by default). Make the appropriate selections, and then click Next.
  8. In the Completing the Connection Wizard dialog box, review the settings. If you need to modify any of them, click Back as many times as necessary. If all the settings are correct, click Finish.
  9. In the Connect dialog box, click Connect to attempt the connection

FOR WIFI
First, you should get wireless internet on your computer (thorugh a router) or get a Wi-fi USB (they're discontinued, so look hard if you want one)

Unable to go wireless, Notebook settings


It may be the authentication settings for the wireless connection, I am not sure what OS you are running but try turning off authentication in the connection settings.

If that doesn't work, try the network setup wizard if you have windows. You might also delete any saved 'profiles' for the wireless connection under the "Connect to the networks automatically' part.

If that still doesn't work, you could try uninstalling the wireless adapter from device manager and let windows reinstall it.
