My acer aspire one wont connect to internet. it says it is connected to wireless, and i have wired it to modem but the problem still persists. please help.


Based on your description, the following is assumed.
1. The service to your Internet Service Provider is through a cable or DSL modem.
2. Internet service was initially set-up with your netbook directly connected to the modem.
3. A wireless router was since added and is using the direct wired connection to the modem.
4. The netbook is connected to the wireless access point being provided by the router.
5. The netbook says it is connected to the wireless access point but still no internet access.
The problem is likely due to the modem capturing the MAC address of the netbook when access to the internet servce was initially set up using the netbook directly connected to the modem and now the modem will only allow access with the netbook directly connected to it. You can check this out by reconnecting the netbook directly to the modem. It may be possible to "flush" the captured MAC by unplugging the AC power to the modem, waiting a few minutes and then powering back up with the router connected in place of the netbook. To make it easier, you may want connect your netbook directly to the router's LAN side to check if you now have internet access through the router. If you still don't have internet access, you will need to use your netbook to log onto the router to clone your netbook's MAC address for the router's WAN connection. The router's user guide/manual has directions on logging in and doing the MAC address clone. It will also have an explanation as to what is a MAC address.

Problem of not connecting to the internet.


Your laptop frewall settings should be controlled. You may have two firewalls. One is dealing with Windows firewall, other one is dealing with your modem firewall settings. Check the both please.

Checking the firewalls:
Step 1 : open this address http://192.168.1.1 Log in with your admin password. Check the firewall settings. This will solve the problem. Or.
Step 2 Start/Desktop Manager/Security Center/Firewall

This will solve your problem I hope.

Notebook acer 5534 windows 7 64 bit cannot connect using wireless netgear wgr614v7, the pc sees the network. Connects ok with ethernet.


Perhaps you have turned on MAC (physical) address filtering on your wireless router/access point? If so, you have to add the MAC address of your new wireless card to the allowed list.

Unable to connect to internet . wireless connection shows connected at 150 mphs, using repair function seems to hang up at acquiring network address


The wireless access point may have MAC address filtering turned on. This means, that only explicitly allowed network devices can fully connect. This is used to prevent unwanted guests in your network.
You must ask the administrator of the access point or router to add you to the allowed MAC address list. If it's your router, go to configuration and check if the MAC(physical) address allow/deny list is active.

Can't find mac address on my acer to connect to wireless network at work


i think the wireless at your work filter computers based on their MAC address as a security measure hence you are unable to connect..
to find your comp's MAC address follow this:
  • From the Start button select Run
  • In the box which appears type cmd and click OK
  • A new windows will appear - at the prompt type ipconfig /all
  • The MAC address will be referred to as the Physical Address and is made up of 12 characters e.g. 00-D1-AB-F2-G3-89
    You will have a separate MAC address for your wireless card and your Ethernet card. Make sure you use the correct one

  • do ask the admin of your work wireless system to add your comp's MAC address so that you are able to connect..
    am no expert but love to help out...hope it helps you...all the best!

    Cant connect to the internet


    Sounds like you need to assign ONE device to be the default connection. Or you could be having a power struggle issue between Vista and another driver over the connection. If you have a new system, make sure you do all the Vista updates before attempting to insert an outside influence. Vista seems to have a problem with letting others be the Alpha dog. Service packs first then try to add other devices. Also, with routers or cams etc., if you attach the device before it tell you to do so, 99.9% of the time it will not work properly.
