Youre wireless card could be defective.

You can try unseating the card and reseating it.

To do this make sure the laptop is powered off all the way.
Remove the battery or you can cause other damage.
"Be sure to only touch the edges of the card to avoid Electro Static Discharge"

Close the laptop, turn it over.
There are two removable covers secured by screws.
Under the larger one of them is the wireless card and memory

The wireless card has two antenna wires coming from it a black and white one that just pop on and off.

If you need to you can remove the wires with your fingernail and then pop them back on with a finger.

The card is secured on both sides by a lever. Pressing outward on the levers should release the card allowing you to remove it.

Take it out and wait 10 seconds, then put it back in the way it was reconnecting the wires if they were disconnected.
Put the cover on, put in the battery, plug it in then see if this worked.

If not the pc card needs replacement.

    Also make sure the wireless switch is firmly set to the on position and not lodged between on and off somehow.

Hi, i have a acrr aspire one, it was not mine and can't get it to get wi-fi or internet, am not very good at this neither, i realy need help.

First, loof for a special icon along the top row of your keyboard. One of those keys turns wi-fi on and off. You may need to hold down the "FN" key while pressing the wi-fi key. Make sure that you have selected the wi-fi "on" setting. Next, you can try going somewhere that has free wi-fi such as a Starbucks coffee bar or a restaurant. Open your internet browser (Internet Explorer has a large blue icon of the letter "e"). See if you get on the internet. If so, your wireless adapter is working OK. Now, most homes have wi-fi that is password protected. Click on the little bar graph icon in lower right corner of your screen and a list of available wi-fi networks should appear. Choose your home wi-fi and click on Connect. This will open a screen where you must enter the passwordor passphrase to gain access to the wi-fi. Good luck.

Can i use my laptop without ethernet cable

Of .course. You do not have to go on the Internet or on some local network. If your laptop has Wi-Fi (almost certain it does) you can connect to Internet or some other network through Wi-Fi.

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 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.

There are two ways for you to do this. First, enable WI-FI on your laptop, under your network settings. This should be on. You may also have to go into your firewall and allow wi-fi. Once enabled, when you are in Wi-FI area, connect to the network connection. Also, you can take the ethernet plug out of your desktop or router and plug it straight into your netbook.

Hope this works.
