Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

3 Answers

How did you install the new driver to get wireless with FIOS?

On the message board titled "ACER 5720 WIRELESS CONNECTION PROBLEMS ACER 5720 WIRELESS CONNECTION PROBLEMS "

you discussed deleting the existing drivers then installing the new drivers (from some Czech site). I downloaded the drivers ok but can't figure out how to install them.

Can you provide assistance? I am stuck with an Acer notebook that can't connect wirelessly to FIOS. I have spent HOURS trying to fix this....

thanks in advance,

    I had given up on this actually. But then I "accidentally" reloaded WIndows Vista (with the upgrade DVD that came with the laptop), and lo and behold, the wireless worked!!



    There may have been something with the Acer stuff that came installed with the laptop that was causing the problem. But it works and I am very happy..

If you can get to another computer then visit acer europe. They have all the drivers XP and Vista for your machine.

1:Just download the ziped files into a folder in your docs.

2:Then create another folder and unzip the files into that one.

3:go to the unzipped folder with you wireless lan driver and click on set up, the rest is automatic.

The wireless issue could be a variety of things embedded within the windows operating system.. You can try to right click on the setup file and attempt to select "install" if that function is not available you may be forced to reload your os for the computer to replace the damaged or corrupted files which handle the wifi interface to the 8255 controller.

WIRELESS CONNECTION


Go to the Device Manager and check Wireless Network Adapter properties. Is the Wireless adapter installed, working properly and enabled? If not then reinstall the wireless LAN driver.

If it is OK then go to the Control Panel and click on Network Connections and right click on the wireless connection anf then click on Repair. This will make the wireless router issue a new IP address to the wireless LAN card and you whould now get access to the Internet & your network.
If this doesn't work power down your wireless router wait 1/2 minute, power up and boot up your laptop after all the normal LEDs on the wireless are on.

Let me know if you still have problems plus all error messages.

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


Miss_isis,

try the following : ( for testing)

disable the security and see if u can stay online longer
if u can , the passpharse or keypairs are wrong ( or in some cases the router or WNIC does not support key rotations (cisco)
or the key might be messed up..

Disable mac filtering .. ( for testing)

upgrade the router firmware ( be sure to backup the old firmware first and document your settings because upgrading firmware will set the router device back to the factory default)

3rd tip .. try and connect to an different wifi network and see if its the same ..

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.

The battle: Acer Vs. Verizon FiOS


Verizon needs to apply a firmware update for the Atheros wireless adapter in your notebook. I work for Acer and I end up having to tell people this all day long. If you take this to a wireless router that is not from verizon you will have no problems with your connection. Maybe if enough Fios customers complain they will provide a firmware update for this.

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.
