Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


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.


hope this helps

How to Connect a Mac Laptop to a Cell Phone Modem


  • 1 Connect the USB data cable to your wireless phone. This data cable is going to plug into the power port you use to charge the device. Plug the other end of the cable into an available USB port on the computer.
  • 2 Click on the blue Apple icon in the upper-left hand corner. From the drop-down menu, select "System Preferences."
  • 3 Click "Network" in "System Preferences." The Macbook is going to scan your system to see what networks are available to you. Once the Macbook has detected your wireless phone you are going to be greeted with a pop-up window stating a new port has been detected.
  • 4 Download and install the wireless modem driver for your phone. There is a link in "Resources" that has a series of different drivers. If you do not see one, you can go to your wireless phone's manufacturer's website and download the drivers directly from the site.
  • 5 Open the Finder and type "Library" in the search box. Open the Library folder, followed by "Modem Scripts." Click and drag the driver you downloaded into this window.
  • 6 Return back to "Network" in "System Preferences." Click your phone as the default modem.
  • 7 Click "PPP" and type in the account name, password and telephone number of your Internet Service Provider (this is given to you when you first create your Internet account).
  • 8 Accept the changes and you are free to start surfing the Web with your wireless phone as the modem.

    Wi fi is on but still can't connect to the internet


    Not only does Wi-Fi have to be on, but it has to be connected to a wireless access point (sometimes called a wireless router), and the wireless access point has to be properly connected to the internet.If the wireless access point/router has empty ports on it, plug your computer into one of those ports, and see if you can connect to ther internet then. If you can, the problem is somewhere between the wireless access point/router and the computer. Could be the transmitter part of the wireless router, could be the wireless network adapter on your computer, or could be the driver that runs the wireless adapter on the computer. If you cannot access the internet when you plug into the wireless ap/router, then you need to go one step "upstream." This would likely be the cable modem or DSL modem. Plug directly into that with your computer, and reboot both the modem and the computer (just unplug the power from the modem and then plug it back in to reboot the modem). If you can connect to the internet then, the problem is the wireless router/ap. If you cannot connect to the internet then, contact your ISP.

    Wireless USB Moderm not detected on insertion into USB port of laptom. alert says' localizing file missing.' cannot connect to internet


    You will need to uninstall the drivers for USB ports and re-install the drivers. (again drivers for USB ready to use ports, but not wireless modem.)

    some times files from drivers are missing for USB port (Through Motherboard).

    Once you are done with the re-installation it will be done.

    Cant access internet through wireless network.


    How do you know your notebook is connected to your wifi AP? Did you try pinging the gateway? If not, open your command window & type "ping 192.168.0.1" (put in your own gateway address.) If you get replies, then ping something outside of your network: "ping 4.2.2.2" (this is a verizon dns server). If you get replies, then "ping yahoo.com". If it does not fail at any of the above steps, you don't have a connectivity problem. If you fail any of the above, then report back & we'll continue the troubleshooting.

    Can not connect to my wireless router


    1. Choose your wireless equipment The first step is to make sure that you have the equipment you need. As you're looking for products in stores or on the Internet, you might notice that you can choose equipment that supports three different wireless networking technologies: 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g. We recommend 802.11g, because it offers excellent performance and is compatible with almost everything.
    Shopping list
    • Broadband Internet connection
    • Wireless router
    • A computer with built-in wireless networking support or a wireless network adapter
    A wireless router
    The router converts the signals coming across your Internet connection into a wireless broadcast, sort of like a cordless phone base station. Be sure to get a wireless router, and not a wireless access point.
    A wireless network adapter
    Network adapters wirelessly connect your computer to your wireless router. If you have a newer computer you may already have wireless capabilities built in. If this is the case, then you will not need a wireless network adapter. If you need to purchase an adapter for a desktop computer, buy a USB wireless network adapter. If you have a laptop, buy a PC card-based network adapter. Make sure that you have one adapter for every computer on your network.
    Note: To make setup easy, choose a network adapter made by the same vendor that made your wireless router. For example, if you find a good price on a Linksys router, choose a Linksys network adapter to go with it. To make shopping even easier, buy a bundle, such as those available from D-Link, Netgear, Linksys, Microsoft, and Buffalo. If you have a desktop computer, make sure that you have an available USB port to plug the wireless network adapter into. If you don't have any open USB ports, buy a hub to add additional ports.
    2. Connect your wireless router Since you'll be temporarily disconnected from the Internet, print these instructions before you go any further.
    First, locate your cable modem or DSL modem and unplug it to turn it off.
    Next, connect your wireless router to your modem. Your modem should stay connected directly to the Internet. Later, after you've hooked everything up, your computer will wirelessly connect to your router, and the router will send communications through your modem to the Internet.

    • If you currently have your computer connected directly to your modem: Unplug the network cable from the back of your computer, and plug it into the port labeled Internet, WAN, or WLAN on the back of your router.
    • If you do not currently have a computer connected to the Internet: Plug one end of a network cable (included with your router) into your modem, and plug the other end of the network cable into the Internet, WAN, or WLAN port on your wireless router.
    • If you currently have your computer connected to a router: Unplug the network cable connected to the Internet, WAN, or WLAN port from your current router, and plug this end of the cable into the Internet, WAN, or WLAN port on your wireless router. Then, unplug any other network cables, and plug them into the available ports on your wireless router. You no longer need your original router, because your new wireless router replaces it.
    • 3. Configure your wireless router
    • Using the network cable that came with your wireless router, you should temporarily connect your computer to one of the open network ports on your wireless router (any port that isn't labeled Internet, WAN, or WLAN). If you need to, turn your computer on. It should automatically connect to your router.
      Next, open Internet Explorer and type in the address to configure your router.
      You might be prompted for a password. The address and password you use will vary depending on what type of router you have, so refer to the instructions included with your router.
      As a quick reference, this table shows the default addresses, usernames, and passwords for some common router manufacturers.
      Router
      Address
      Username
      Password

      admin
      password

      Internet Explorer will show your router's configuration page. Most of the default settings should be fine, but you should configure three things:
      1. Your wireless network name, known as the SSID. This name identifies your network. You should choose something unique that none of your neighbors will be using.
      2. Wireless encryption (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), which help protect your wireless network. For most routers, you will provide a passphrase that your router uses to generate several keys. Make sure your passphrase is unique and long (you don't need to memorize it).
      3. Your administrative password, which controls your wireless network. Just like any other password, it should not be a word that you can find in the dictionary, and it should be a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. Be sure you can remember this password, because you'll need it if you ever have to change your router's settings.
      The exact steps you follow to configure these settings will vary depending on the type of router you have. After each configuration setting, be sure to click Save Settings, Apply, or OK to save your changes.
      Now, you should disconnect the network cable from your computer.
      4. Connect your computers to the wireless network If your computer does not have wireless network support built in, plug your network adapter into your USB port, and place the antenna on top of your computer (in the case of a desktop computer), or insert the network adapter into an empty PC card slot (in the case of a laptop). Windows will automatically detect the new adapter, and may prompt you to insert the CD that came with your adapter. The on-screen instructions will guide you through the configuration process.
