Wireless problem Hi, my name is Ricardo from Brazil. My wife has an Acer Aspire 5050-5554 and she reported me a wireless problem - she is out in Europe for some months. Well, the problem: when the note is connected to the AC power outlet, wireless doesn´t work. When she unplug the power cord (notebook working with battery) wireless works well!! Reconnecting the AC power outlet the note goes offline!! We have no idea how to solve it. Would you Please help us? Thanks Ricardo

    Hi!! Thanks for answer!!

    Yes, I am exactly at the same place. When I am online and plug the power cord to the AC power outlet it goes offline - it seems like it doesn´t recognize any external signal(?). If I unplug, it becomes normal...
    I am also "studying" the problem, but I am not am expert and my wife is in Europe (and so do the note). Is it possible the problem has something to do with the Acer ePower Management? Or some eletromagnetical interference when I plug it to the AC power outlet?

You might want to try and access the Acer ePower Management settings. You can get there just by pushing the Empowering button (e)which should bring up the menu. Have a look at the profile settings and make sure the Wireless Lan button is "ON" for the mains power setting. That should keep your wife online! Michael (The Acer Guy)

My acer one aspire

I use linux on my Aspire one but not Linpus Lite There is a known problem with the acer one switch. so you may want to try blacklisting the acer_wmi module and you mey have to change your wireless driver. try running NetworkManager in shell and see if it will give you any errors. My wifes Netbook has a similar problem She has the same linux i do. As far as getting NetworkManager to start automatically i'm not sure you may have to add it to startup applications but again i'm not sure about linpus and how it looks.

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?

Networking Problem

By local network do you mean using a wired connection or a wireless connection? I gather you mean with a wire.

The following link is to a PDF page listing the lan drivers from acer for an Aspire 3680 --

Drivers Link

The second and third entries on the list both appear to be wireless adapter drivers for built-in hardware (atheros or broadcom). Are you sure the driver you have loaded is the correct driver?

To determine which if the two may be suitable for your machine try the following

Click Start and right mouse click My Computer and select properties

Select the general tab and click on device manager

find your wireless adapter probably preceded by a yellow question mark (?)

double click on the wireless adapter entry

get the name at the top of the general tab and
the click the details tab and record the
device instance id value

Report what you found back here in a comment.

Hopefully the name will contain atheros or broadcom of not I hope I can lookup the device instance id string to determine the manufacturer of the wireless adapter.
