Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I just got an Acer laptop for Christmas, and last night it wouldn't connect to the internet because the wireless adapter wasn't connected. I am on my desktop right now. I don't know how to fix my adapter. I've checked for updates, and updated drivers, but none of them needed updating. I went a whole day off my laptop and got on again to see if it was working again, but it wasn't.

First make sure the wireless switch is on...it looks like an antenna with radiating lines coming out of it...On your desktop you may need to go to network status to get the ssid and the wep key for the wireless...the wireless will not work if you do not have the proper network id (SSID) or if you have the security set for encryption(WEP,WPA etc..)...To figure this out you can go to network status and tasks...click this then look for the router or the wireless...click on the router...a box will come up with the wireless status....look for a tab marked wireless properties and click it this page should show the SSID for your network and the next page shows you the encryption type and a network security key..also on the SSID page it should have a link to copy the network settings to a usb drive...do this and then take the drive out of the desktop...put it in the laptop...goto network setup on the laptop and follow instructions to set up wireless access on the laptop...

Is your Telstra/Bigpond ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router?
If the ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router and your laptop does not have a wireless card, then you have two options to connect your laptop to the ADSL wireless router/Internet -
1. Purchase a PCMCIA wireless adapter and insert it into the PCMCIA slot in your laptop. One of my favourites is made by Netgear.
or
2. Purchase a USB wireless adapter, the only disadvantage with this solution is, it uses a USB port and if your laptop has only one USB port. This is a problem if you need to connect other USB devices. Then you also need to purchase a 4 port USB hub to give you additional USB ports.

(1) How do I connect to my internet with my


1.In order for you to connect to the internet through your wireless acer laptop, you should first prepare your laptop to accept wireless connections in order for you to set the proper settings. On you network configuration under the TCP/IP settings where you put the Ip address, you should set it to dynamic because when you connect to another network, the router should give you the ip address in order for you to connect to the internet.

2/ In order for you to charge your acer laptop, you should have a power adapter in which you connect it from your laptop going through a power source. And also you should have the correct Power Configuration in order for you to charge your laptop, you should set the right power schemes as Portable / Laptop.

My network says that it can't find the internal wireless adapter


You may have to reboot your PC and try to connect again.
If you have "Viewed all available networks" and tried to connect to your Wireless network but cannot what kind of error message are you getting ?

To quickly find out if you have Internet Connectivity coming in at all from your Internet Service Provider turn off your wireless switch on your laptop and try to connect a cat5 directly from your PC ( connect cat5 cable to what looks like a slightly larger telephone jack on the side or back of your laptop) to the back of your router and see if you browse the internet. You may have to reset your router (unplug and plug)
