Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook
I think that the your router doesn`t assigns an IP address to your computer and that`s why it`s trying to reconnect all the time. Hook up your wired connection, go to Start>Run and enter cmd. Next, type ipconfig/all to the command line. Find the section which is describing your Local Area connection and save the IPv4 Address to a word file or write it down somewhere. It`s usually something like 192.168.Y.X, (Y = 100,0,10,200 ...) ' (X=2-255). Next, we need to find your routers default address which is usually same as you IPv4 one just ending with '1' , '2' , '100' so it would be 192.168.Y.1. I suggest you to check the user manual of your router and find the default address if you haven`t with the previous method. Okay now go to the Wireless adapter`s settings, Control Panel > Network and Sharing > Change adapter settings(on the upper left side), right click on the adapter and select properties. Highlight the Internet Protocol version 4 and click Properties. Enter the following adresses - IP: 192.168.Y.[a random number between 2-255, lets say 49], Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0, Gateway: [the router`s address] 192.168.Y.1(i`m guessing) and same for the DNS: 192.168.Y.1(guessing again :) ). Apply your settings. If it`s not working, try to reset the router to factory default by pressing a little hidden button on the back of it. Note: If your not using a router just enter the addresses you got when entering the ipconfig/all command i mean for the DNS, Gateway, and Subnet Mask.
