Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Cannot connect to wifi

For some reason my labtop will not connect to our house's wi-fi. To make sure it wasnt either the internet or computer, I checked to see if it could get a wired connection. It can. It is picking up our signal and that of my neighbors across the street, however ever time I click on "Connect" it says something of "renewing IP address". Then an error box with IP address could not be renewed. I feel like there is no end. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi,

All you need to do is successfully join each wi-fi network. Once you have joined a wi-fi network and connected to it the computer will remember the wi-fi profile and automatically connect to it the next time you are within range of it.

Is it possible to connect a standard DSL modem - without Wi-Fi (with 1 Ethernet port) and a DSL modem - Wi-Fi (with 4 Ethernet port) to broadcast Wi-Fi singles


Does the non wifi modem give out DHCP addresses?
Can the wifi modem be set up to receive it's IP address from DHCP?
If the answer to both these questions is Yes then that's what to do as a first step. Make sure the wifi modem DHCP service is disabled as it must NOT give out DHCP addresses.
Connect the ethernet port of the non wifi modem to one of the LAN ports of the wifi modem and NOT the DSL/WAN port. The wifi modem is not participating in any DSL connectivity at all so it's DSL light will remain off. The non wifi modem is doing the DSL duty so it's DSL light should be correctly illuminated.
