Question about Acer Computers & Internet
It can sometimes be tricky solving wireless connectivity, but here's a few things you should try:
Reboot the router. I know, everyone says that, but it does help most of the time.
Update the driver on your wireless card. A lot of times, manufacturers find fault in theri devices and update the drivers to compensate and fix those problems.
Along with this, also try looking for new software/firmware updates for your router. it soudns scary at first, but normally there is an easy way to this built into the router software. simply go the manufacturer's web site and download the latest and greatest for your model. then follow the directions that usually are packaged with the driver file in a text file of some kind.
If that doesn't work, take a real good look at the properties on your wireless connection under "my netwrok places" and make sure evry setting matches exactly with those of the router, sometimes, a difference in these settings can cause instability in your connection too.
Finally, it could be that your wireless card and the router are just not compatible. some manufacturers build in different tollerence levels inside their products in order to give their own companion hardware a slight edge in compatibility. call it marketing: I call it mean-spirited, but the fact remains that it is done by some manufacturers and it means that you may find that your wireless card will never work with that router and may find yourself having to replce one or the other. dlink and some built in cards have this failing in common.
Hope that helps.
