Call up the company that made your computer, and tell them of this error. You are most likely missing the driver for your computer that allows wireless internet. They will tell you exactly what you need.
Check your router settings. You should surch for a setting called "Undetectable" or "Hide SSID". Or, if you know the name (SSID) of your home wireless connection, you can enter it. If none of this helps, post the router's manufacturer and model and your laptop manufacturer and model. And btw, what OS you're using?
you can buy a wireles linksys usb for your lap top and have a wireless router linksys stationary and the lap top usb ..... will pick up the signal for your lap top, i have a usb port linksys and it works great, but u do need a router in your home to pick up the signal
Some wireless cards are better than others at picking up weaker signals.
The problem with any wireless transmissions is that radio signals cannot pass through metallic surfaces.
You should position your wireless router away from metallic surfaces/walls and position your laptop so it can receive the radio signals without it passing through any metallic walls. If possible place the wireless router higher than at desk level.
Having your laptop sitting next to your desktop will not let your laptop connect to the DSL link.
You need what's called a Wireless Router. (assuming your laptop has a wireless adapter, if not you'll need a network cable for that.
1. Go to the store, buy a wireless router 2. install router in between your DSL modem and the computer. 3. Plug the WAN port into the DSL modem (cable is usually included with the router) 4. Plug the desktop into the back of one of the ports of the wireless router 5. Run the setup disk 6. For manual configuration of the router you can usually go to: 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 depending on the brand) 7. If you don't know anything about networking, let the install disk do all the work. 8. Follow the instructions on what it tells you your configuration is for your wireless network. 9. Go to your laptop, apply said instructions. 10. ??? 11. Profit.
you may have accidently shut off the wireless on/off switch or button.i also have a acer laptop,& it has a sliding switch in front.other laptops have a push in button.your owners manual should show you where yours is. also check the bottom right hand corner of your laptop for the 2 little computers symbol. right click on it, click on view available networks,look for your router # on the listings. you may have to type in a wep key # to lock in your router.the other signals you are seeing are other routers in the area
It's a common problem because the signal can get bounced off surfaces and not get to your notebook directly.
The reason why you can get neighbours is because most phone sockets are near a window, hence the router is picked up quite easily by your Acer laptop as it has a Signal Up built into the antenna in your screen and because the signal is only going throgh mainly glass and air it tends to pick up more connections than some other laptops.
it also makes a big difference if your router has more than one antenna and a long range capability in the settings.
