Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look onboth sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on. Sometimes the wireless switch might be a button to press. Look above the keyboard or sides for a wireless button to press.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can togglethe wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN functionkey located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit willhave the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a towerwith the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will displayWireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

Maybe the wireless card needs to be reseated.

Turn the computer off, remove the power cord, remove the cover from the bottom of the laptop where the wireless card is housed. Sometimes the wireless card might be under the keyboard. Once you find the wireless card, remove the 2 antennas (black and white cables) but remember where they go. Then remove the wifi card from the slot (it might be secured by a screw). Wait 30 seconds then put it all back together and reboot and see if it detects wireless.

You can also try downloading and reinstalling the wireless drivers.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "AcerSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the Network drivers for the wireless.

It might be that your adapter isn't operating at a high enough power. To fix this Click start>right click my computer>properties>hardware>device manager>double click your wireless adapter. In the advanced tab set the power management and transmit power all the way up (but be warned: KILLS battery life). Or your adapter isn't set to the right mode (like if your access point or whatever is 802.11g and the adapter's settings are set to 802.11b only).

Settings must have changed and not not changed back, set your friends settings as default settings. He may have accidently reset something etc.

A quick solution is to go to
System Restore and reset it back a day before you gave it to your friend.

go to START > PROGRAMS >
ACCESSORIES > SYSTEM TOOLS and you'll find SYSTEM RESTORE there. Click on it and find the option to set your Notebook to an EARLIER TIME. After selecting that from the list find a date BEFORE YOU LOANDED THE NOTEBOOK TO YOUR FRIEND and left click on it and follow the instructions and your COmputer will restore the system to that earlier date (it could be 1 day before you loaned it). You will not lose any files etc.

After it goes through a cycle of rebooting etc and it resets to the earlier date, your Network should work as it did before you loaned it to your friend.

If you have trouble finding SYSTEM RESTORE go to HELP and look for a link there.

Good Luck !
Cheers !

Most Acers use an IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does 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 describe

Hi,

Try turning off your wireless router and modem for 2 minutes and then turn them back on. Wait another 2 minutes for them to settle down and try connecting to the internet again.

If this does not work you may have to reinstall the drivers for the wireless card in your laptop.


Regards.

How to connect the wifi to a acer aspire 5733z - 4851 laptop


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem. If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.

  • 2 Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer. Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu. Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.
  • 3 Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to. Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.
  • 4 Restart the computer. The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.

    If your device can detect other acces point then, your wifi device is correctly installed. If not, os will tell your wifi have problem. If you try connect, and have problem with connection, it came from your acces point(wifi router expample). Maybe it have password that have not match with your pc. If that access point is yours, then you can try check the password for wifi using cable connection.

    If that acces point(wifi router) is not yours(public), then you cant get the password unless you try hack using air-ng, backtrend using wifi device that can capture and monitor the network(wifi *** support a/b/g exmple) if it only support b/g, you cant get wep encryption password.


    If it does not have password, and you try to connect, but it still problem, that mean, it have restrictly to MAC address in wifi router.

    My laptop (acer aspire 4930) wifi is not able to detect wireless networks. It has been working fine for 1.5 years but something has happened today that it is not able to detect the wireless connections.


    Double check that the Wi-Fi didn't accidentally get turned off. There should be a button on your computer that turns it on and off or a fn key usually fn+f2. Try that first if that doesn't solve the issue try reinstalling your driver which can be found at the following site.

    Can't detect network


    Hi, Some models of Toshiba Laptops have a slide switch either on the side or front to physically activate the built-in Wifi. Some models also will not work with some models of Access Points if using the built-in Windows Wireless Configuration Utility. A workaround is to install the Wireless Configuration Utility of the WiFi manufacturer. If your Toshiba is using the Atheros WiFi chipset, you may need to install the Atheros 802.11a/b/g Wifi Client utility to use rather than than that pf Windows. The file name is atheros_wpa_client.exe and you can just Google it. Hope this be of some help. Post back how things stand or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
