Wireless already installed in acer or do i need another router also>?

I am SOOOOO new to a pc. (i had a webtv for 8yrs)...(stop laughing...:-))..but now have the acer aspire 5630-6288. i'm confused about this router stuff. it says i have an 802.11a/b/g wireless LAN. does that mean i don't need a wireless router between my modem and pc? i thought maybe i was doubling up on the connection stuff. all i'm getting lately is 'internet explorer cannot display this webpage'...for a month or more now. i hooked this up to my phone line i had still for my webtv but it's soooo slow.....can you help? and yes, i have windows vista home premium. was already installed in pc. no disk came with this.

What wireless router can i get that is compatible with my T180


I know for a fact that a netgear router is compatible, because I have one but honestly any wireless router, regardless of brand, should work for you, provided it is set up correctly and your wireless card/adapter on you computer is setup correctly (i.e. drivers loaded, turned on, etc.). Let me know if you have any questions.

D-Link 615 stopped connecting with wireless


If your laptop is not detecting the wireless router, can you try to get the laptop closer to the router ? If you have done that already, I would suggest you to try and power cycle the router once. If that doesnt work either, try to reset the router. Hope this helps
Thanks Ranjit ranjit@supportminds.com

I can't figure out how to set up my wireless internet.


To setup a wireless Internet connection you need the following :- 1. You need either a cable or DSL modem with a wireless router or a 3G wireless modem that connects to a 3G wireless network. 2. You need to signup with an Internet Service Provider. The Internet Service Provider may also provide this modem at a cost. 3. The Internet Service Prodider will provide an installation instructions/CD as well as E-mail setup. Have you already installed the wireless card driver on your computer? Can you give me details of what you have already done in regards with setting up the wireless access.

Wireless connection is detected, but will not connect


If your other laptop is working fine, then have a look at the configuration of the wireless card and use the same configuration on the one that is not working.
Depending upon your wireless card make there is a program that enable you to setup the wireless card. Go to Start - Programs to locate this program. If your wireless card is built-in refer to your Acer manual.
Encryption is setup on the wireless router and these settings are also used to configure the wireless card. If the encryption is already setup, changing the encryption will affect your other wireless card, therefore all the wireless cards will need to be reconfigured with the new encryption to work with the wireless router.

Youe broadband router is working ok with the broadband cable.So it is configured with the broadband cable.Now,to work with the wireless internet,you have to configured the wi-fi router to work internet.You can see the wi-fi connection but unless & untill you will configure wi-fi router it must not work or if before it was working with the wi-fi then you can check the wi-fi router setting because it might change by mistake.Surely it will work after configurating wi-fi router.
