Question about Acer Extensa 4620 Notebook
It appears that my new Acer 5420 simply does not like my wireless router. It is painfully slow half the time, and doesn't work the rest of the time. It works fine when plugged into ethernet. Also, my other two computers work great on the same wireless connection that the 5420 that is having the problem with. I have reset everything multiple times... I thought it must be a defective wireless card in the laptop, but I switched it out for a new one, and I have the same problem.
First of all, to check the wireless card on a friends network or a public hotspot, like starbucks. if that internet is slow, then most likely it is your wireless card that is on the fritz. otherwise, if it is fine on these networks there is a compatability issue with your router and your cards. make sure that if your router is very old, it is still compatible with a newer adapter.(e.g. n-wirelesscards maynot work with b-routers. and a-wireless cards will not work with b/g/n routers...or vise-versa.)
