Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I cannot make the connection between the wireless-G and my laptop. I have a Windows Vista. I have followed the instructions very carefully. I am not sure that I can get the blue ethernet cable all the way in. It is far enough that it clicked,and I cannot pull it out without pinching the release, but it doesn't go in as far as the one on my laptop does. The power light is on, and the internet light is on, but the other 2 lights blink.

Why did you describe this problem three times? it is SUPPOSED to return to that screen so you can post a new problem. next time check to see what problems you have posted before you post the same one again.

you did not specify which router you have but open your network connections folder. If there's a connection there, it's active and that's not the problem. If it clicked on both ends, it was supposed to. laptop plugs are recessed in farther to prevent you from breaking the plug off the circuit board if you drop the laptop and it lands on the plug.

I am trying to connect to new acer laptop to my wireless network, but my acer empowering technology toolbar, located above my keyboard, does not seem to be working to allow me to connect to my wireless...


Hey

for this you gotta now the following:

1. ssid : this is the name of your access point (router)
2. key/passphrase: this is the network security key you configure your router with (if your router has a default configuration (the one that came with the device right out of the box which is not recommended) your key may be a blank key ... you simply don't have one set up.
3. the encryptation method: wep, wpa, wpa2. this goes again to how you have your router configured and if your don't have anything configured with your router in regards to encriptions (not recommeded) you may simply not have any encryptation that you need to select here.

important:
make sure your wireless adapter is working and is on:
your laptop may have a switch on the front to turn your wireless adapter on (i don't know what model of laptop you have so you may want to check the user manual that came with laptop to find the switch) or you may have to turn it within windows. (also check the user manual of your laptop)

now that you have the info needed and your adapter is on there are 2 ways to do this:

1. using your beloved acer empowering technology:
I found this that may guide you through the process of setting up your wireless connection
ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com/notebook/empowering_technology/acer_enet_management.pdf

look under the title: SETUP A NEW PROFILE and follow the instructions..

now if acer empowering does not work... you can try to setup your wireless connection with windows,

2. Using windows vista to setup your wireless connections:
I'm assuming you're using vista so here's a set of instructions with pictures you may want to take a loot at and follow

http://www.home-network-help.com/vista-to-connect-wireless-network.html

let me know how it went!
if problems.. post what you see and we'll try to give you hand. (please give as many details as possible)
