Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook

Laptop wireless connection

It now works to the stage of saying "wireless connectivity firewalled" and on the status it shows a closed padlock, can you please let me know how to unlock it. Please use very simple terms as I am not very experienced.

My compaq cq60 connect to the wireless but won't connect to the internet


Have you tried restarting your broadband modem/router? As although your laptop is connecting to your broadband modem/router perhaps your modem/router is not connecting to the outside world. Once you have restarted your router, if you are still having problems, login to your router and check it's connection status. If it says anything other than "connected"/"ok"/"healthy", something along those lines, I would contact your ISP and check the status of your line. At this stage, if they confirm your line is working I would check the laptop for viruses/malware.

Cannot get onto internet


disable the firewall on control panel.
check all the properties boxes on the network
connections and make sure firewall is disabled.

access the router setup and make sure that VCI is set to manual
and that you enter in the settings yourself (eg: 0,38 for aol broadband). Don't leave VCI, etc on auto, the router can't handle it.

Windows xp service pack3 no wireless internet


ok, this is an easy fix, just go into device manager and unistall the wireless card, dissable AVG firewall and activate microsoft's firewall. Then Download CCleaner and clean the registry, you can download it from here:
http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

when you have cleaned the registry restart the pc, it should now detect the wireless card and install the drivers for it, it will show this in the system tray (bottom righthand side where the time is)
This should resolve the problem for you
post back if you still have problems

Wireless connection


Access the routers admin page with the hardwired pc.  http://*gateway*  right click network status on pc and get gateway.  Google the model you have for the default passwords.  Setup your wifi security then do the same to your laptop and attempt to connect again.  Bad settings somewhere.

Trouble setting up work laptop to use Internet thru home computer


Do you have any firewall installed on your computer?
If so, try disabling it. If it doesnt work, keep going.

does your modem have a green light on the "internet" or "activity" status? if not, you have a problem in your modem.

hope it helps.

Laptop won't work on wireless connection


When you say nothing shows up , are you talking about the internet ? More info there.

Try some generic things first. Go to the bottom right corner where the icons are. Right click on your wireless icon , and then choose repair. See if that helps.

Also, check the status of your firewalls to see if that is what is keeping you from connecting. I won't tell anyone to disable their firewalls, but windows firewall gave me such headaches, I switched to the free one from Zonelabs and it works nicely and is much more intuitive.

Write back if that doesn't seem to help and we'll go from there.
