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.

Enable the wireless in the BIOS if it has been disabled. Next install the wireless card driver if it has not been installed.
Download the device drivers from the Acer WEB site. Makesure you select the model of your laptop the drivers you that require thatmatches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link toget to the Acer support: - http://www.acersupport.com/drivers_download.aspx Next - your wireless router needs to be configured with the wireless settings. Then the wireless card in the Acer needs to be configured with the routers wireless settings.
To connect to yourwireless router, the router needs its wireless settings to be configuredwith the SSID, encryption key etc., also the wireless cards in all thelaptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings.Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router
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.
disable wireless then enable it ... or reboot the computer reboot router aswell, in this order broadband modem reboot wireless router, then reboot the laptop it should pick up the router and connect... see if you can connect to the router with a wired connection from the laptop .... if you can try doing a driver update acer always putting out new drivers for the wireless cards
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
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.
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.
