SOURCE: WIRELESS CONNECTION PROBLEM

Have you configured your wireless adapter with same WPA key that you had set on the wireless router?
Do you detect other Wireless routers in your area and are they using the same wireless channel as your router?
If so change the wireless channel on your wireless to an unused wireless channel to avoid interference with other wireless routers.

SOURCE: How do you repair an IP address conflict?

First off you need to SECURE YOUR NETWORK!!! An open network could allow people in your neighborhood to gain entry into your personal files and use your IP Address to look at things on the web that could get you in trouble. Everything they look at will appear you were looking at it. Most routers use the IP address of 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 for the router control panel. So try one of those using windows explorer with a computer on your network. A screen will come up that will ask for a user name and password. The default password is usually "admin" but you may need to check your manual for the router if that does not work. Then you need to set up the WEP security for the router. Then you will need up password (use 128bit it is a 26 letter/number password and more secure) that each computer will need to use to connect to the router. After you create a password(don't forget it) and save the settings in the router the computers will no longer connect until the password has been entered. Usually if you have windows detect the network it will ask you for the password and once you have entered it you should be able to connect the next time without having to re-enter the password. Once you have fixed this we can try and figure out what is going on with the printer.

The "Acer ePM" (Power Management) program is probably outting your WIFI into hibernation, Make sure it shows the WIFI as on under "Start" "All Programs"

Most Acers use a form of Intel chipped IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does, you use XP 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

Both of your problems can easily be solved by reformatting and re-installing windows on your machine.
If that is not what you want to do, Then you'll need to delve into some all-nighter work.

The network issue sounds like either A) a proxy is preventing traffic from getting from point A to point B. or B) your wireless card needs proper drivers/replacement or C) you're connecting to another computer without configuring internet sharing and not an access point or D) your access point needs configuring.

Windows very rarely allows you to have two antivirus programs. You need to uninstall the first to install the other!

How to turn on the wireless card on Sony pcg11211L

If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on.

Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks.

This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop.

When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks.

If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off.

Locate the wireless switch on your computer.

It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front.
If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit.

Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position.
The switch will be clearly labeled.

Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on.
If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability.

The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys.

Check your user manual for your computer's key combination.

Lose connectivity in the middle of a pdf upload

I take it that you are doing this with an ftp program? If you are, then try disabling "Passive mode" on the ftp software.

There are also other actions you could try - again forgive me for making an assumption that you are connecting to the internet wirelessly

1. Disable Windows Firewall

2. In Internet Options Control Panel go to the connection tab and then the LAN Settings where you can uncheck the "Automatically detect settings" button.

3. If you have any third party software, I would get rid of this and ensure that the"Windows Zero Configuration" in the Services menu is set to "Automatic" and the status is started.

Interestingly, Anti Virus programs sometimes interfere with wireless set up - you could see if it helps by disabling it whilst configuring your wireless. It might also be worth trying to connect without any encryption code & see if that will connect - you can then sort out the encryption.
