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!

Make sure its pressed on.

One of the features that makes laptop computers desirable is their ability to connect to Wi-Fi networks, thus allowing people who are on the go to be able to check email, browse the web or update social networking status any time they are in a Wi-Fi hot spot.
Fortunately, enabling Wi-Fi on a laptop is simple to do.
Only basic Internet and computer expertise is needed to connect your laptop to a wireless network.

Click on the "Start" menu on the bottom left-hand side of your desktop.
Then select "Control Panel."
When the "Control Panel" window opens, choose "Network and Internet."
Click on the "Connect to a Network" link that is found underneath the "Network and Sharing Center" heading.
A new window will open.
Choose "All" from the drop-down menu and click the "Refresh" button on the right side of the window.
A list of available Wi-Fi networks will appear in the window.
Click on the Wi-Fi network you want to enable on your computer.
Then click on "Connect."
You have now enabled Wi-Fi on your laptop.
Click on your web browser of choice to browse the Internet.

I can't access internet through wifi


Hi spatra279,

what is the model of your laptop?

1. Before you conect to the Wi-Fi, make sure that your computer has installed drivers for Wi-Fi.
2. Make sure that Wireless is already open or st-up.
3. Look for the Wi-Fi spot area or zone, if there's no Wi-Fi access on that area you may not connect to Wi-Fi.


Hope this helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Describe your 7" G-Netbook


There may be many reasons for this. Please check the following things one by one.

 

1. If you have another known good laptop then try it with your wi-fi router. See if the wi-fi router is able to connect to the internet

2. If you don't have another laptop then use an ethernet cable (RJ45) cable to connect to the wi-fi router. See if this helps.

3. While connected with the wi-fi router see if you can access the router. open any internet browser and type 192.168.0.0. you should get the router page. If you don't get then you have to configure the router first.

4. Check the internet settings of your browser. There will be "internet options" or similar in the menu of your browser. Click that. In the GUI you will get "connections" tab. Click that and select the proper wi-fi setup.

Please instruct on how to access McDonalds wifi. A booklet was not included with my netbook 7 inch and I am lost. Please detail


From McDonalds:

You need a Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) enabled device.

Most newer laptops have built-in Wi-Fi capabilities. Older versions may require a separate Wi-Fi card, which you can purchase at most larger electronics retailers. Any chip or card that has been certified for compliance with the Wi-Fi wireless LAN standard (IEE 802.11b) can be used. More and more PDAs and even cell phones are now Wi-Fi enabled. A manufacturer or service provider can help you identify these devices.


Connecting is simple:

When in the McDonald's restaurant, just turn on your computer (or PDA), select "Wayport_Access" from the available wireless networks and open the Internet browser. You will be pointed to the McDonald's splash page where you can select the CONNECT button.

I hope this helps - please rate my reply.

if you have the same problems with usb then your problem lies outside the laptop. if your led does not light it is possible your laptop wasnt wired for wifi or your led is not working. Where you place the wifi card is there 2 wires 1 black and 1 white
