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-220.127.116.11-whql from the .ck page. With this one the Acer recognice the wireless but have problem with the installed driver. Then I download the xp32-18.104.22.168-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 xp32-22.214.171.124. That is all. Sorry for my bad English. Puerto Rico lo hace mejor!!!! Maury

The Security Key is normally used for Wireless routers to protect your connection from any unauthorized use. As you have said that you do not have the Security key for your router with you, the best way to connect your ACER laptop to the Netgear router is by asking your Wireless service provider to reset the security key & freshly reentering the same on both of your HP & ACER laptops.
These are some reasons why your new Hp laptop can't connect through your Netgear Router is because your Router has a security that used a password to connect to your router or the ip address of your desktop and Dell laptop is already setup to the router to work with internet.
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
What is your operating system (Vista/XP, older Windows)? Have you turned on the router's wireless router radio from the computer that is connecting? (Login to the router's setup page at 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 (depending on the router) and go to Advanced menu and click Wireless Settings.) While you are there, enable the SSID Broadcast (another checkbox hust below the one for Wireless Router Radio). Now check if your laptop can see the router.
