Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

I recently replaced my old Belkin N150 Wireless Router with a new Cisco E3200 Wireless Router. After doing so, all of my wireless devices work (9 total) EXCEPT for my (2) Acer Aspire One Netbooks. The Netbooks have an Atheros AR5007EG Wireless card. The Acer Netbooks can connect when hardwired through the LAN port. They also "say" that they are connected to my wireless network with great signal strength, however I cant access any internet webpages. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cisco E3200 router configuration lost


The Cisco connect software came on the CD in the box with the router. If was used to configure the router when new. This can be used to fix the router now. I could guide you through a manual configuration but the software is a much faster easier method. I would recommend you try that route. Get the CD and run from there if you are worried about phishing.

Unable to configure my wireless belkin N150


As i understand you have a router provided by your ISP: MTNL, you need to configure the Belkin router in Dynamic mode and not in PPPoE. Then restart the devices by unplugging the power from MTNL router and Belkin. Wait for 20 secs, then power up MTNL router 1st, wait for all lights to get steady and finally power up the Belkin wireless router. Then you will find the modem and internet light lit up properly.
For any further clarifications, revert!

Thanks and regards,
Arvind
