    Where are you getting the new driver for re-installation of network?
    If your computer is designed for American usage then try this site but if designed for use elsewhere, then you will have to modify the settings on the website shown. It's not impossible but is highly unlikely that your networking has failed in a hardware sense. Make sure you use the drivers from the manufacturer's website and no where else.

Since it is only a week old, I would be on the phone to Acer first thing in the morning.
Part of the price you pay for a system does include the warranty.

This way, if the part is defective, they will handle fixing it N/C

If you wait too long, the warranty may expire.

Acer ax5810 wireless problems


Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon. This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look ((())) Make sure its pressed on. The internet connection is located in the system tray in the bottom-right corner of the screen. The icon looks like a series of rectangles that increase in from left to right. Right-click the Wi-Fi icon and select "Connect to a network." You will see a list of available wireless networks. Wireless Acer laptop can be a massive boon to your productivity when it is working properly and a massive headache when it is not. When your laptop card begins to exhibit undesirable symptoms, such as signal dropping, you can avoid a hefty repair bill by performing at-home troubleshooting. The best solution is to merely reinstall the software driver, which refers to the program that the operating system uses to speak the wireless card's language.

Open your operating manual and look up the model name and number for your laptop. Navigate to the Acer Support web page (see Below) and click on the "Downloads" link. http://support.acer.com/ Input the model number of your laptop, click on the "Search" button, download the wireless driver file for your laptop model and save the file to your desktop. Open the "Start" menu, click on "Control Panel" and open "Device Manager." Open the "Network Adapters" menu, double-click on your wireless card, select the "Drivers" tab, click on the "Update Drivers" button and choose the desktop as the location to search for new drivers. Click "Next" to reinstall the driver, fixing your wireless woes.

How do i hook up a wireless internet on a acer notebook,


Hi,

If your computer has wireless adpater then you do not need any drivers to install the wireless. The wireless router should automatically detect the network. First check if your computer is detecting any networks. To do so, click on the wireless icon on your computer taskbar nearby to system time (bottom right hand corner), if you are able to see your wireless network, if yes, select it and click connect, once connected, open IE and try to access web page. If in case you are not able to view any web page and connection remains active, I suggest you try to connect in "Safemode with Networking", to do so, restart the computer and as soon as it restarts keep on tapping F8 key, now select "Safemode with Networking" from the Advance boot menu. Try to connect to internet. If you are able to connect to Internet then the issue is with the firewall on you computer, contact the firewall manufacture for settings. If you are still unable to connect to Internet, then the Internet setting are not correct, you may need to contact the ISP.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

Cannot enable wireless on my Acer Aspire 5612WLMi


First, does the modem show up in the device manager (without an exclamation mark or an "x". In other words, does the computer see the card and is it not reporting any problems.
Second, do you see the wireless connection when you go into My Network Places and Network Connections?
Third, does the wireless connection icon appear in the system tray?

My PC is an Acer Aspire T180, my OS is Vista, ram 2GB. If I leave my PC for a while sometimes my internet connection drops, however the other PC on my network is Ok.


That looks like a problem with the network card.

Ensure first that the wireless connection signal is ok (at least two steady bars, better three).

Reinstall the network card drivers, if that does not help you can only solve the problem by installing an external network adapter.

Does it say limited connection to network? You're connecting it through a wireless router right? Do you see your wireless router when you search for networks?
I had similar problem with my previous Dell laptop. Wireless use to work untill one day it just stopped, found the networks, but kept giving me limited connection whenever i tried to connect. I found out the problem is linked with the driver. Dell laptop i had was also on XP OS.
Maybe try reinstalling the drivers. After I formatted my computer and reinstalled drivers, it started working again.
Hope this helps.

I bought an Acer notebook (Aspire 9920) back in December. My ISP manual says that the 'Wireless Network Key' should be on the base of the notebook on a coloured label. This doesn't appear to be the case....


A wireless network key is used to join to a wireless network. Wireless networks are created by routers and/or access points. In order to obtain the key so you can log onto the network, you must have access to the router's settings or be given the key by someone who can access the router. To access the router, you type in it's IP address into your internet browser. If it is password protected, you will need that as well. Once in the router settings, you can set many configuration options, including the wireless network password or passphrase and encryption type.

Again, if you are joining to a wireless network, the KEY is determined by the router, not the laptop. This is how multiple wireless devices are allowed onto the same network: they all use the same key.
