If your computer doesn't have a built in wifi radio you will have to purchase one that plugs into the usb port.
If it does have wifi, you need to go into your network settings and click on "connect to a wireless network" there you can see if your computer can find your wireless router (you do have one right?)
if your computer finds your wireless router you should be able to click connect and then be ready to use it. If its password protected (the wireless router) you will need to know the password. If its an open wireless router you would be well advised to read the instructions that came with it to change it to a secure router so others can't access it and possibly steal your information (credit card numbers, passwords, etc)

The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

I am trying to set up Wi-Fi from my acer notebook to my new stereo, could you please send me a network sercuity key


hi there!

The Acer Aspire One is a miniature laptop that includes many of the same features larger laptops have. The Acer Aspire One is about the size of a diary and features an 8.9-inch LED LCD display, an 84-key keyboard, two built-in stereo speakers and Wi-Fi capability. Though smaller than most laptops, the Aspire One functions much like other computers. The Aspire One uses the Windows operating system, so it connects to a wireless network the same way that any other Windows computer does.


Instructions

  1. Click the "Start" menu in the bottom left corner of the screen.
  2. Click the "Connect To" option from the menu that appears. The "Connect to a network" screen will appear.
  3. Click on one of the networks listed on this screen to select it.
  4. Click "Connect" at the bottom of the window. You now have set up a wireless connection on your Acer Aspire One.
The network security must be established by you.

Hope it helps,

Acer aspire one notebook wont connect to my wi fi it was fine before


Try system restore.
Go to start - All programs - Accessories - system tools - System restore.

Try to restore your system to an earlier time - time or date when your system is still able to connect to your wi-fi router.

Wi fi on ACER Aspire 4810T connects intermittently


Log into your router and change the channel and see if that helps. Failing that try rebooting the router to factory settings and deleting your connection from the laptop. Then start from scratch again...Hope this helps...Please let me no...
