Hello,

If it says "Working Offline" in the corner. You just need to un-check that feature.

To do this, open Internet explorer and either click File in the top left corner or Tools in the upper right. Then click the option "Work Offline" so that it it not checked.

After that, verify that you have the browser set to use a LAN connection by clicking Tools > Internet Options > Connections and then choose "Never Dial a Connection" then choose OK. Then you will need to close and reopen the browser.

That should allow you surf web pages again.

Thanks

Is it possible to make it wireless


To make this PC wireless capable, you would have to install a wireless network interface card, also known as a wi-fi card or wireless adapter. There are also USB wireless adapters, so you wouldn't have to open your case and install a card. For more information, here is a link to the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireless_network_interface_controller

Install wna 1100


Try the following:
- Uninstall the linksys adapter driver on your PC
- Uninstall the netgear driver, and go to kb.netgear.com and get the latest driver.
- Try to insert the adapter into a different USB port. (try them all)
- Update your XP if you are still using SP1.

You must use the driver on the CD that came with the wna1100.
Do not use the latest version on the website.

If you dont have any CD then here is a link for old version software:

Can I install wifi card on M5641?


According to the Acer Support web site for your desktop computer you should have one or two free PCI slots that could be used if you decide to add a wireless lan card.

The alternative would be get a USB wireless adapter that wouldn't need you to open the computer case and have the advantage that you could plug the adapter in to a USB extension cable and position the wireless adapter to maximise the wireless signal.

First connect the ethernet cord from your modem directly to the ethernet connector on your computer to enable direct access the internet. Click on the link below to download the software. After installing the software, connect your Netgear wireless device and let Windows install it. Follow the prompts to have Windows look for the software for your hardware. You should then be able to use the Netgear wireless device.

Hi, to connect your computer to the wireless network of the router you need to have a wireless adapter. The bluetooth adapter will not work in this case as the router does not communicate with the bluetooth signals.

Purchase a wireless adapter like NETGEAR WG111

Rate it, if it helps.

Get the driver for the WN121T from the NetGear webset and install it before pluging the adapter into the notebook. Use a wired connection on the notebook until you have the drive downloaded.
