Wireless cannot detect any network despite claims to be working fully

Hi. My Acer Ferrari 3400 (305002 model)'s inbuilt wireless connection does not appear to be working. It cannot detect any wireless networks despite there definately being dozens in area (including my own wireless router, all of which works with other Dell wireless notebook). I have tried disabling wep hoping it would then see the network but cant. Wired LAN works fine. The system says the adaptor is fine and I have tried disabling it and enabling it, the driver is up to date. Please help as this problem has caused us a lot of trouble. Thank you.

    Thanks for reply.
    After trawling through the net, I have found the problem. It seems that setting notebook to "Notebook performance" in battery setting switches off Wireless by default. I only now realise I can turn it on manually by little silver switch on front of notebook (which I have never noticed before!)

I had the same problem with my Aspire 3690. It could be as simple as UNINSTALLING & RE-INSTALLING your network adaptor/card. Check the status of you network adaptor/card in the DEVICE MANAGER. Assuming you don't know were it is follow this path START > CONTROL PANEL > SYSTEM > HARDWARE > DEVICE MANAGER Select NETWORK ADAPTORS to expand the list and if there is an EXCLAMATION MARK against your installed network apdaptor that's your problem. To fix close other open applications, RIGHT CLICK it then select UNINSTALL. To RE-INSTALL go to CONTROL PANEL > ADD HARDWARE > You will see a warning re manufacturers installation CD - i ignored this and let the wizard do its magic. WIRELESS CONNECTION at last....... I really hope this works for you

Try first dissabling the wired network adaptor, so as the pc is not looking for the wrong area connection. If you have used Windows to try to repair the connection the settings will be wrong for the router addreses. Go to your wireless network cards properties and make sure that on the internet protocol the obtain IP address automatically is selected. Run this flush:- Click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter. Re-start pc and type the routers address in your internet browser. Go to your router settings and ensure enable DHCP is set to automatically allocate ip addresses.

    Good as long as your sorted, Acer are good for access to things like that, you should also have a button at the front for bluetooth if it has an internal bluetooth device.

532h wireless

The Acer Aspire One is an inexpensive laptop computer that runs the Windows operating system. The computer does come with a built in Wi-Fi receiver, giving you the ability to connect to a wireless Internet network, when available.
However, if you are having trouble connecting to a wireless network, you must troubleshoot the network connection to determine exactly what is causing the problem with the Internet.
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.
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.


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.

Restart the computer.
The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.

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 size 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.

Wireless network not detected despite all elements seems working

Hello there.

This is a common problem. What i typically do on notebooks that use Intel Wireless, is install the latest drivers and Intel software from their website. 9 times out of 10 this will make it pick up a network that was not previously found, or fix problems with timeouts and so on.

Please click here then choose your version of windows, click 'Go!' and then click "Download" beside the section called "Intel® PROSet/Wireless Network Connection Software for Windows* XP/2000 32-Bit"

When you download and run this file, and install the software, you can then use the Intel utility to connect to the wireless network.

Hope this helps.
