Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Wireless connection When I brought the laptop, it was able to connect to the internet. If the ethernet was plugged in, it would detect it and connect to the internet. The same for wireless networks. I have the laptop to a friend, and a two days later there it won't connect to the internet. It can detect wireless networks but it won't connect. The same if the ethernet is plugged in. A ballon keeps popping up even when not connected to the internet that says "Acer Enet Management - internet disconnected". I have an Acer Aspire 5520 running Windows Vista Home Premium. My friend has Verizon Fios and wireless. Any suggestions?

Settings must have changed and not not changed back, set your friends settings as default settings. He may have accidently reset something etc.

A quick solution is to go to
System Restore and reset it back a day before you gave it to your friend.

go to START > PROGRAMS >
ACCESSORIES > SYSTEM TOOLS and you'll find SYSTEM RESTORE there. Click on it and find the option to set your Notebook to an EARLIER TIME. After selecting that from the list find a date BEFORE YOU LOANDED THE NOTEBOOK TO YOUR FRIEND and left click on it and follow the instructions and your COmputer will restore the system to that earlier date (it could be 1 day before you loaned it). You will not lose any files etc.

After it goes through a cycle of rebooting etc and it resets to the earlier date, your Network should work as it did before you loaned it to your friend.

If you have trouble finding SYSTEM RESTORE go to HELP and look for a link there.

Good Luck !
Cheers !

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

How do i connect phone to laptop connection


So do you have internet service at the house? If so you can plug the ethernet cable from the modem directly into the computer's ethernet port.

If you're talking about directly connecting to your cell phone, then the phone has to have the built in router in it. If it does, you can connect your computer to it wirelessly.

If you're talking about a regular old house phone (land line) then you would be very slow if you could get it connected. I don't think the newer models of computers even have a modem port to connect a telephone line into it. But basically you would still need a internet service provider to connect it.

Bear in mind that there is a difference between the phone cord and the ethernet cord. The phone cord is smaller in size and the end that plugs in is smaller.

    If you take you ethernet cable from the back of your laptop and plug straight into your router
    that should access the internet immediately

    If you are trying to ge a t wireless connection from your router then have you checked that you have enabled the wireless switch on your laptop

    im not sure but the switch could be over on the far left of the keyboard probably have a small picture that looks like a mini satellite dish

    Get connection to internet


    Connections to the internet can be tricky. It depends on how you connect- modem, lan,or wireless. If wireless, is it at home, or at a hot spot. If you are connecting at home, try shutting off your wireless switch on your laptop.(if you can), then shut off (unplug) your router, plug it back in, and then plug in the lan (ethernet) cord, and reboot. It should find your connection. You might also go to control panel, then to internet options, then to connections. See if there are any listings in the box. You might have to change things if there is one that says "use this connection first" or something like that, if you are trying to connect otherwise. Then go to lan settings, and uncheck "automatically detect settings". For a modem you need to make sure the modem is installed in devices (in control panel) and then make sure the software, from your internet provider, which will tell your laptop which number and how to connect, is installed. If you are using a wireless connection, do as instructed above and uncheck "automatically detect settings." and make sure your wireless switch is on. Occasionally there are conflicting connections, or possibly unsecure wireless connections "remembered" in your system that may have changed. Right click on your wireless icon on bottom right, then network and sharing center, then manage connections. You may want to delete the ones you don't recognize, or the ones you don't use anymore, as you can always connect again if you want to. If you are having trouble connecting to a particular connection, remove it from that list and then try connecting again. I know a lot of this sounds difficult, but like I said, connecting to theInternet can be tricky.

    Network problems connecting to internet


    Hi. If Dell is correct, then yes, it would be expensive. Your other alternative is to buy a PCMCIA Ethernet Card. They range from about $20 to $40. Or, you could go with what you suggested and do wireless via a wireless router.

    Internet connection


    There are 3 ways to connect to the internet. Using a modem with a phone line, an ethernet cable that is hooked up to a high speed internet connection or using wireless. If the laptop does not have a modem, it may have wireless or an ethernet port. Ethernet is slightly larger than a phone jack. If there is wireless there should be a button to turn it on and off somewhere along the top of the laptop where the keyboard is. You could also put get type of those connections on a PCMCIA card which fits into the credit card like slots on the side.
