    i cannot detect wireless network

    I do not know make of router (i am in a library)

    laptop s acer aspire with Atheros ar5b91

  • tom_uvi Mar 22, 2011

    I use this signal often without problems. Earlier today I had the same problem in a different library that I also often use. There are other laptops in use in this library so I know the signal is on. The light on my laptop that indicates that a signal is being received is not blinking.

    others are detecting the signal

    Hi,

    Do you have someone there that has a laptop and check if they can connect to the library's wireless network? To be able to connect to a wireless network first you need to know the Network Name of the Router. We need to make sure that there is a wireless signal on the library to check if the problem is the laptop's wireless capability.

    Please provide the information needed. Thanks

    The reason why i ask you to check it with someone is because to make sure that there is a signal on the library. The wifi is working on the computer since it is enable. So we need to make sure that the router on the library is on. Can you do that for me ask someone if they can detect signal so that we can diagnose the problem on the computer

Wireless lan not working on my acer aspire 4520


The wireless feature (Wireless LAN) on an Acer notebook allows you to connect to available networks. 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. Once you enable the wireless feature, your Acer notebook can connect to wireless networks within range.

Instructions:
1.Locate the Wireless LAN switch located on the front of your Acer Notebook. Move the switch to the right to turn on Wireless connections.

2.Right-click the network icon located on the system tray next to the clock. You should see a list of available wireless networks.

3.Select the network you want to connect to and click "Connect."

Hi, i have a big crash with my Toshiba satellite pc, with vista family home edition(32bites) caused by a virus type TROJAN-win32. As I couldn't do the reboot from my computer I found a recovery cd of vista...


boot into safe mode with networking ,run malwarebytes and get that to remove the virus. if your disc isn't compatible you can try using neo-smart's recovery discs (http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vista-recovery-disc-download/)and burn that to disc and recover your vista that way

best of luck :)

How do I get the acers drivers installed? I have down loaded all three wireless drivers,and none work.


Drivers for windows Vista are here: http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_4720.html
Under Drivers and Utilities, Select and download these drives;
1. Wireless LAN Atheros
2. Wireless LAN Broadcom
3. Wireless LAN Intel
While installing, please start with "Intel" as you follow instruction there after. Restart your Laptop and install Broadcom, Atheros respectively.

Please ensure that VISTA SP1 is installed on your system prior to installing these drivers!
Driver incompatibilities on a system without VISTA SP1 might affect usability.

My broadcom wireless lan adapter for windows vista not detected in device manager and hp wireless assaistant not working.


You can run HP update to download and install drivers on your PC/Laptop, or run Microsoft update too.

Your HP PC came with a tool called Recovery Manager, Click the vista start menu and in the search bar type (Recovery Manager) without the parenthesis and it should display programs like RECOVERY DISC CREATION and RECOVERY MANAGER , please select the RECOVERY MANAGER an if you have VISTA USER ACCOUNT CONTROL turned on you will have to allow the program to run.
OK, once program launch, select the advance Options and click on HARDWARE DRIVER RE-INSTALLATION and click next. follow the screen instructions to re-install the driver or drivers.
Make sure you are not running any other program when using recovery manager.
GOOD LUCK

I need Aspire 4520 wifi software, it was not working when i used


Ok.. This is the downloads site for ACER support site.
ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/aspire_4520/vista/Drivers
However there are two wireless LAN drivers in that directory. You should find out which one is yours. To do this click start->right-cllcik on computer. When the system window opens click on device manager located under tasks on the left hand side. When the device manager opens double-click on network adapters and one of the two devices(Atheros wireless LAN or Broadcom wireless LAN) will be listed. Download the respective driver and your wireless would be up and runnin'

Ok :-)



You have several options available. You could first try phoning Acer's Customer Support Line & See if they can supply you with a Recovery Disc for your Model Of Notebook.

Secondly, if you get no luck from Acer (or they say the Recovery Disc will cost you!) then if you are familiar with downloading Torrent Files, you can download a Universal Windows Vista Recovery Disc

Do you have the product key for Windows Vista - it should be on a sticker on the side of the computer. If so, you can try the following:
  • Borrow a friends DVD for Vista and enter your product key when asked.  This will automatically select the correct version of Vista as all version are stored on the same DVD.

Wireless LAN problem


Make sure that the built-in wireless lan is disabled. If your pc is XP or vista, uninstall the new WIRELESS LAN(go to control panet, add/remove programs), select the Atheros Software. Leave the WIRELESS ADAPTER connected to your pc. Insert the disc, do not run the set up. RESTART THE PC. The drivers for the WIRELESS ADAPTER should install, if not load drivers manually.
MAKE SURE WIRELESS ZERO CONFIGURATION for XP is running. You should be able to detect wireless networks.
