I think it depends on how far you are from your router. i was told by at&t that you need to be with in 20 to 25 feet to get a good signal. if that do not solve your problem. then i think you should go into your control panel, then to network and internet, then to manage wireless networks. delete all the networks you see. when you are done close out everything then look at the bottom right of the screen, you will see the internet bars for internet access. click on that. you should see your internet info. just reconnect.
other than that, i dont know what to tell you.

SOURCE: Acer drop internet connection, not locating

You haven't provided us with much information, but I'd suggest a couple of things:
Check to see if your wireless adapter in the computer is turned on or off. Some computers have a little switch on the front or side that turns the wireless on. If on, somewhere on the computer there should be a small light lit up indicating that the wireless is on.
If there is no switch, then the wireless adapter may be turned on or off by a keyboard combo of the Fn key plus one of the special function keys. That particular key will have a little icon that resembles an antenna on it.
If you are unable to solve the problem by using the switch, try to do a system restore back to when it was working.

Don't know how to connect to my home wifi


Connecting your Acer laptop to your home wireless network is fairly simple.
Before you begin you need to know the SSID broadcast name (Wi-Fi) network name and security passphrase (Wi-Fi network password).

Move the Wi-Fi switch to the "On" position.
Not all models have this switch.

Open the Windows Start menu and select "Connect To."
A list of available connections will appear.

Select "All" from the drop-down menu to view all available networks and connections within range.

Select the desired network and click "Connect."
Enter the security passphrase if prompted and click "Connect" again to join the network and gain wireless Internet access.

ACER 5720 WIRELESS CONNECTION PROBLEMS


Sounds like a bad router or antenna. Try replacing the antenna or checking the connection of the antenna on the router. Have your ISP replace the router and the problem should go away.

Wireless connection lost


948c84d.gif Make sure #4 is switched to the ON position.

Then, double click on the wireless indicator located on your taskbar, near the clock in the lower right hand corner of your screen. That will tell you if it "sees" any wireless connections available to it.

You can download the manual for this laptop here: http://csd.acer.com.tw/acer/URMUL1.NSF/1af87a750eeeb70f0825628f006e0bfc/a9b67d2003ba6822482571f8000f317e/$FILE/AS5680_5630_3690-ENG-OLM_0727.pdf

Let me know if this helps.
