Question about Computers & Internet
When I bought my Acer- Aspire 5315-2153 at Wal-Marts secret shopper, the employee told me it was wireless. When I got home and plugged in the pc, it apparently isn't wireless and yes I have other computers on the internet and have the modem and router but the Acer says I must purschase a router and I did then it said I must purchase the wirelss card, I feel I was mislead, but anyway I purchased the wireless card and put in the computer and again it wouldn't work because it said it was not Vista compatible. I will not recommend Acer products to anyone simply because it's all messed up and can't get any technical support. What is your opinion
I too bought the same laptop and have the very same problem. I also tried many different attempts of getting technical support with no success. Very frustrated!! I finally have found that the laptop will connect wirelessly if I start-up laptop without plugging into electrical power supply. Must start-up laptop using battery power. Even then sometimes it still doesn't recognize the wireless adaptor and I must shut down and restart again. It's not a bad laptop for the price however there is definitely a problem with the wireless adaptor and ACER should have resolved the problem instead of ignoring it. Too many people have posted the same problem for it to have been the user not thinking logically. Finally, Walmart instructs consumers to refer to product support and I too couldn't get any support.

I have the same one also and mine is also wireless which I use all the time. I absolutely love mine! There is nothing I cannot do with it! Did you try to go into the control panel and manually configure the wireless?
First of all, why didnt you take it back to Wal-mart if unsatisfied? Second, why not take it to a local computer place and ask them questions...I find they are more than happy to help. Third, I think it is ridiculous if you would go buy a wireless card, etc and then blame acer because it is not vista compatible.
Next time, I think you need to take a deep breth and relax first and think logically before just jumping and acting. And last result if it isnt working as it describes...take it back! Crying that you wont recommend Acer is stupid. Every company has a bad comuter now and then!

I bought the same Acer at Wal-mart and it IS wireless,,, Sounds like Acer gave you the run around. If you already had a wireless router, then why on earth would you think you needed to purchase another one??? even if Acer told you to. That just doesn't make sense. What kind of router did you have to begin with? (Make and model please) Are your other computer that you have on the internet connected with a cable? If so they are not wireless.
