Question about Acer Aspire 5720 6497 Laptop
I keep having connection problems with my acer at home. I have the AtherosAR5007EG and when I connection to a WLAN at home it only keeps me connected for 2 minutes and then disconnects itself. I seldom get the chance to stay connected for longer than 2 minutes. I have a feeling it is something to do with the verizon FIOS connection we have or the Atheros not responding well to our router. Please help...maybe I just need an update? Please please help me...
Thanks - Teejay
try the following : ( for testing)
disable the security and see if u can stay online longer
if u can , the passpharse or keypairs are wrong ( or in some cases the router or WNIC does not support key rotations (cisco)
or the key might be messed up..
Disable mac filtering .. ( for testing)
upgrade the router firmware ( be sure to backup the old firmware first and document your settings because upgrading firmware will set the router device back to the factory default)
3rd tip .. try and connect to an different wifi network and see if its the same ..
