I accidentally reset it how can i get the internet thing to wireless instead of the cable one


Which operating system ?
Wireless Internet is a convenient way to hook up multiple computers to one router without the mess of cords.
The router or 2-in-one (router/modem combo), must be set up through your Internet Service Provider and connected with either a DSL line or Cable.
Since most Acer laptops have built-in wireless, no additional hardware is required.
Turn on the laptop.
Move the switch located on the front of the laptop to the right, then let go.
The switch will go back to its original position.

Confirm that the wireless networking icon has appeared on the screen.
Right-click the wireless icon in the bottom right corner.
In Windows 7 this will resemble a small stair-step triangle; In Vista it looks like a tiny monitor.
Click "View available wireless networks."
It might also say "Open network and sharing center."
Wait while the adapter finds your wireless network.
Click to highlight the network and click the "Connect" button.
Enter the security password that you created when setting up the router (if applicable).
If you don't know or can't remember, log in to the gateway page specified in the user's guide.
Locate the "Wireless security" settings page to see if security is enabled.
If it is, type in a new key and enter the same number for the wireless network.

Acer drop internet connection, not locating wireless connections Acer problems with wireless connections


You haven't provided us with much information, but I'd suggest a couple of things:
Check to see if your wireless adapter in the computer is turned on or off. Some computers have a little switch on the front or side that turns the wireless on. If on, somewhere on the computer there should be a small light lit up indicating that the wireless is on.
If there is no switch, then the wireless adapter may be turned on or off by a keyboard combo of the Fn key plus one of the special function keys. That particular key will have a little icon that resembles an antenna on it.
If you are unable to solve the problem by using the switch, try to do a system restore back to when it was working.

How do i set up my hp laptop to wifi


Please Understand wireless network settings and setup:

Wireless networks depend on special-purpose radio receivers and transmitters that substitute the exchange of messages over the air for the exchange of messages that occurs over wired connections on conventional networks. When you power on your PC, Windows Vista automatically searches for available wireless networks.
The network icon in the system tray, shown in Figure 1, enables you to view a list of local networks that Windows Vista detects. Notice that the network icon in this figure is marked with a red X, which indicates no network connection is currently established.

Figure 1: A red X indicates no network connection is active.
When you click this icon, a window opens indicating you're not connected to a wireless network, as shown in Figure 2.
hpsmb_laptoppcwireless-fg02.jpg Figure 2: The detail window for the network icon provides a link to create a network connection. The window also includes two hyperlinks: Connect to a network and Network and Sharing Center. Click the Connect to a network link to open the Connect to a network window, shown in Figure 3.

Switching wireless on


Powerup the laptop and wait for the main screen to appear.

Turnon the laptop's Wi-Fi switch, typically located on the left or right edge ofthe laptop near the front of the computer. Look for a small, sliding switch.

Viewthe wireless networks in range of your laptop by double clicking on the Wi-Fiicon in the lower right-hand corner of your laptop screen. The icon resembles acomputer monitor with three curved lines, like radio waves, emanating from theside.

Checkthe list of available wireless networks and select the network with thestrongest signal. The signal strength is represented by several bars next tothe name of each network. The more bars you see, the stronger the signal.Choose a network that you can access---either your own Internet connection athome or the office, or the Wi-Fi wireless network connection available for freein some restaurants, coffee shops, motels and other businesses that offer Wi-Fito their customers.

Selecta wireless network and click the "Connect" button.

Enterthe code for accessing the network if prompted to do so. For example, if youare staying at a motel that offers Wi-Fi access to guests, the code will besupplied to you at check-in, or you can call the front desk to obtain it. Mostsystems require you to enter the code twice.

Waitfor the window to display a message that the Wi-Fi is connected.

Openyour Web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Router set up on desktop but can't find the wireless network on my laptop


Did you check if your SSID is broadcasted? If not, you won't see it in "Available Networks".
Check your wireless settings on your laptop:
  1. Double-click the little wireless icon in the tray bar. (If you don't have the icon displayed, you have to go to start -> Control Panel -> Network Connections and Double-click your wireless connection there)
  2. Go to Properties
  3. Choose the tab Wireless Networks
  4. Double-click on your network from the list
  5. Make sure the box Connect even if this network is not broadcasting is checked.
  6. Click OK until all the windows are closed.
If you have any more questions or this did not fix the problem, just come back here and leave a comment. Then we look into your router. Let me know - I'm happy to help.

Accidentally deleted camera icon


I don't think you can actually "delete" the icon for the camera, at least not using the handset. You probably only "hid" it. Try hitting the option button and then select "show all" you should then see the camera icon but slightly grayed out/transparent. go to it and then uncheck the hide option. You can then de-select show all and you should be good to go. If this does not fix it and you did actually delete the camera function, let me know so I can walk you through that detailed process.
