Acer Aspire 5000 wireless

I loaded XP Pro on my Aspire 5000 and now I don't have a wireless connection. No wireless network icon

    I have the same problem. Acer, Aspire 5000, no wireless icon, no network connection but dial up, BUT, my wireless account is working! I just recently traveled, went to link up via my wireless and to no avail, no way to link up. But I return home, and I have access (but with no icons anywhere or networks detected).



    I have checked all drivers, user rights, systems, you name it...I have tried...wireless LAN is enabled on the laptop but I still have no icons. I have now relocated but cannot setup a new wireless connection...I spoke with a tech for over five hours trying all sorts of measures and the final suggestion is to wipe out the computer and reinstall/reboot the whole system.



    Any assistance prior to my wiping out the computer in HOPE that it will work, would be appreciated. THANK YOU!



    The only updates I have done in the past year is to Office 2007, using XP.

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

This convenience allows you to use the Internet with network cables, modems or network installation. Acer laptops come with a wireless switch to turn the wireless feature on or off.

    I just put XP Pro on my Acer aspire 5050 and I downloaded all the drivers and my wireless internet will not work.


    If You downloaded the correct wifi drivers and still didn't get wireless...
    Choose a different series... Try acer aspire 3000 wifidrivers... then Acer Aspire 5000 wifi drivers, if still no luck... Choose the acer ferrari 3000 wifi driver.. or the acer travelmate 5530 wifi driver/..

    I've had alot of Acer Aspire models.. including yours... and I too would have to jump around to different models to get all correct drivers,...

    Cannot reload original software


    I am sure that you can order replacement recovery disks from Acer. If that fails, you can load any retail version of Windows XP, and go to this site to download and install all of the appropriate drivers.

    The wireless icon has vanished on my acer aspire one netbook and i cant get online


    Go to Start/Settings/Network Connections. When the window opens right click on the Wireless Network Icon and select Properties. In XP there should be a check box to allow display of notification when connected. If some other OS, hold the right button down on the Icon and drag it to the task bar. It should drop an icon for showing the status.
    Before doing all of this, is there an arrow to the left of the icons? If so, click on it see if the Icon is simply hidden.

    Acer 5000 wireless is not working


    1. What is the model of the router you have? Can you check the IP address that your laptop is obtaining? Make sure that the TCP/IP setting of wireless is set to automatic.
    2. Try pinging yahoo.com and see if that will give you reply.
    start>run>cmd>ping yahoo.com
    then press enter
    3. Are there any other wireless device connected to your network?
    4. Have you tried connecting your laptop in a different wireless network?
