Acer aspire 4250 wireles problem (may due to adapter setting.


Connecting your Acer laptop to your home wireless network is fairly simple.
Before you begin you need to know the SSID broadcast name (Wi-Fi) network name and security passphrase (Wi-Fi network password).

Move the Wi-Fi switch to the "On" position.
Not all models have this switch.

Open the Windows Start menu and select "Connect To."
A list of available connections will appear.

Select "All" from the drop-down menu to view all available networks and connections within range.

Select the desired network and click "Connect."
Enter the security passphrase if prompted and click "Connect" again to join the network and gain wireless Internet access.

Wireless Internet is a convenient way to hook up multiple computers to one router without the mess of cords.

The router or 2-in-one (router/modem combo), must be set up through your Internet Service Provider and connected with either a DSL line or Cable.

Since most Acer laptops have built-in wireless, no additional hardware is required.
Turn on the laptop.

Move the switch located on the front of the laptop to the right, then let go.
The switch will go back to its original position.

Confirm that the wireless networking icon has appeared on the screen.

Right-click the wireless icon in the bottom right corner.

In Windows 7 this will resemble a small stair-step triangle; In Vista it looks like a tiny monitor.

Click "View available wireless networks."
It might also say "Open network and sharing center."

Wait while the adapter finds your wireless network.
Click to highlight the network and click the "Connect" button.

Enter the security password that you created when setting up the router (if applicable).
If you don't know or can't remember, log in to the gateway page specified in the user's guide.

Locate the "Wireless security" settings page to see if security is enabled.
If it is, type in a new key and enter the same number for the wireless network.

How to remove an Existing Wireless Profile (XP, VIsta, Win7)


When we connect to a wireless network, a "profile" is saved so that, in the future, the Wireless Network Adapter will connect automatically to the network if it is available. These profiles are saved and used by Windows even if you changed the settings on your wireless router causing connection problems. You need to delete these profiles to allow Windows to create a new one that is compatible to the new settings of the router. <br /> <br /> To delete an Existing Wireless Network Profile: <br /> In Windows XP, if you're using "Wireless Zero Configuration" to manage your wireless networking, go into the Network Connections folder ("Start &gt; Run", type ncpa.cpl and click OK), right click the Wireless Network Connection, select Properties and then the Wireless Networks tab, where you can highlight and then "Remove" an existing profile. <br /> <br /> <br /> <img src="iantechson_3.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> If you're using third-party software provided with the wireless adapter, there should be a similar option to remove an existing profile. <br /> <br /> In Vista or Win7, right click "Network" (My Network Places) and select Properties. Click the link at the left to "Manage Wireless Networks" then, in the next window, highlight the "Network" to delete and click the "Remove" button. <br /> <br /> <br /> <img src="iantechson_4.jpg" /><br />

Every Windows Operating System after Windows 98 can share its Internet Connection using this Technique. Microsoft defines this technique as Internet Connection Sharing (ICS).

Using Internet Connection Sharing(ICS) that laptop can Broadcast its Internet to other laptops in the room. Technically, the range of a laptop's WLAN adapter is around 20-25 meters. So it can easily handle near by rooms also. This can also be done with a PC having a WLAN card.
To setup and broadcast your internet it is mandatory that you are accessing internet using anything other than Your WLAN card like a USB modem, Ethernet etc. This is because your Wireless adapter(WLAN) will be used for Broadcasting your Internet connection to your friends.

  8. Enter the IP address as "192.168.000.001" and "Subnet mask" as "255.255.255.0"
  9. Leave all other fields blank in Server laptop, which has access to internet.0219162.jpg
  10. Now setup a wireless "ad hoc" computer to computer connection using "setup a new connection or network" in "network and sharing center" and Name it as anything like "Internet_sharing".c2debe7.jpg3a69972.jpg
  11. Now bring other laptops that will use the Shared Internet connection.

It appears that your notebook has wifi capability. You need to be certain that your network settings are correct. You need to get to your wireless network settings. Follow these directions:

Go to My Network Places, right click on My Network Places to get a menu
Choose Properties on the menu, You will see a new window open
Look for the wireless network connection and right click on the wireless network to get a menu
choose Properties to open another window. Look inside the window for TCP/IP settings.
Click on TCP/IP and choose properties.

Make sure that "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS address Automatically" are both checked so that you are able to connect to your wireless router. That is the usual TCP/IP settings for most home networks.

I hope that this helps.

Connect to wireless internet


There is a wireless card on it. You can use the Connect to option of your Start menu to search and connect to a wireless network connection in a public wi-fi hot spot such as starbucks. If you need to set up your home wireless network, you can use your own wireless router connected to your modem and set the network ID and password by connecting your laptop to it and open the web page with the URL of the default IP address of your wireless router and configure the settings. Use DHCP on your wireless router and your laptop TCP/IP configurations (Shown as Automatic IP address). Then you can use the connect to item in the start menu to connect to the network of your wireless router (according to the network ID you just configured). If there is a switch on your laptop to turn on wireless card, move it to turn on wireless. See the edge and the bottom of your laptop to check about that. Some helpful links:

Unable to go wireless, Notebook settings


It may be the authentication settings for the wireless connection, I am not sure what OS you are running but try turning off authentication in the connection settings.

If that doesn't work, try the network setup wizard if you have windows. You might also delete any saved 'profiles' for the wireless connection under the "Connect to the networks automatically' part.

If that still doesn't work, you could try uninstalling the wireless adapter from device manager and let windows reinstall it.

Looked at the specs on your laptop and you have the wireless card included. I assume you have a router set up already or you have access to another wireless network. Follow these steps to access it from your laptop:

1. Go to START
2. select MY COMPUTER
3. Once in the new window, click MY NETWORK PLACES under the "OTHER PLACES" section
4. select the VIEW NETWORK CONNECTIONS link under the NETWORK TASKS section
5. RIGHT CLICK on your wireless network connection and choose PROPERTIES
6. click the WIRELESS NETWORKS tab.
7. make sure the "USER WINDOWS TO CONFIGURE MY WIRELESS NETWORK SETTINGS" box is checked
8. Click OK and close the window
9. RIGHT CLICK on your wireless network connection (the name of it) and choose REPAIR
10. if windows detects the wireless connection, you should see a bubble near the task bar
11. in order to begin using the wireless connection, open your web browser then enter your username and password (if required)

Wireless connection


HI there - Are you using windows to configure the connection?? I always suggest that you do becasue I find other 3rd party software isnt always as good / easy to use.

try going into your wireless settings

Start >> Connect To >> Show all connections >> Right click on Wireless network connection >> Click Wireless Networks tab

Ensure that "Use windows to configure my wireless network settings" is checked.
