I have a Netgear wireless router. My HP pc and Acer 3613 laptop (both Widows XP) connecting wireless to internet with no problems.
My Acer 5570Z laptop (Vista) will not stay connected at home with the internal wireless adapter or the Belkin adapter card I just purchased. I checked the laptop at my company and it connects just fine to the wireless router there and stays connected.
The internal wireless adapter is good and since the other computers are working properly with the router, I am stumped! Could the problem be with Vista working with the Netgear router? Thanks
Yes!! I finally have a solution. On my wireless Acer Aspire 5720z. (From vista to XP) What I do? Ok. I download the vista-22.214.171.124-whql from the .ck page. With this one the Acer recognice the wireless but have problem with the installed driver. Then I download the xp32-126.96.36.199-whql, go to My Computer rigth click to properties, hardware tap, Click devive manager, on network adapter right click, Update driver and update with the xp32-188.8.131.52. That is all. Sorry for my bad English. Puerto Rico lo hace mejor!!!! Maury

If you are trying to connect the computer to the router with a cable the above diagram should help to explain the simple broadband signal path from the Ethernet or telephone wall socket, to the router and from the router to the computer's RJ45/Ethernet port. Once the computer is connected to the router by a cable is connected to a telephone wall socket or a ERJ45/Ethernet wall socket that has a 'always on' broadband internet signal coming into it, nothing else is required -> launch the Web Browser. If you are connecting wirelessly the wall socket to the router part of the setup is the same but no cable is required between the router and the computer. Enable the wireless function in your netbook, click on the image of two computers bottom right near the clock -> view available networks/connect to network -> click on the appropriate Netgear router signal -> connect -> launch the Web Browser.

Most Acers use an IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does, you use XP, and your router is using WPA or WPA2 (TKIP or AES) security then you'll need to update the driver by searching for it manually using the Custom button (Hardware) in Windows update (instead of Express). This driver is not part of XP service pack 2 or 3. In my experience if you don't update to the newest common form of home wireless security (WPA2 AES) then the older formats seem to become unreliable in the way you discribe
