Question about Acer Aspire 1640Z Notebook

2 Answers

Acer Aspire 1640Z has stopped connecting to the internet via wireless adapter, we have tested an ethernet connection which is fine. We have a BTHomehub8b5a which is fine and are able to connect wirelessly from desktop PC - do I need to download new driver or replace wireless adapter in Acer laptop?

    I have now solved this problem - BT had 'upgraded' software and what was needed was a soft reboot of the homehub - if any one else has a similar problem call your ISP first!

Than option one: F1 to start the system makes it work, except for the Intel WLAN, it does not start (Code 10) the driver is while Acer says it should be being the latest, I wo der how this is possible but I cannot reverse to the "older"one which suppose to be the right one.

Wireless not working on acer aspire 5551a

Connect to internet using ethernet cable and update wifi driver from makers site, if this does not work then buy a usb wifi adapter off ebay or from a local store, put it into usb port and install the driver from the disc supplied with the adapter and off you go (far cheaper than replacing the wifi card)

You're showing a wired connection on your network adapter, yet claim that you are connected wirelessly. The firewall has no bearing on this- put it back on (windows firewall, that is). Here is what you should do. Remove your wireless adapter from your computer and shut the computer down. Restart your modem, and after it reboots, then reboot your router. After those two have rebooted, restart your computer, making sure to use another USB port for your wireless adapter- so that it has to be recognized (again) by windows. Let me know how this plays out. Thanks..

hi guest, welcome to the forum! Let me think why your laptop cannot access to internet during it's already connected to your router.

1) Because the connection is established --> Wireless is working properly
2) If you cannot access to Internet --> Access Restrictions is configured in Router.

How to configure?
1) Login to Router Administrator, you need to open a command line and use usage as ipconfig and you will see as the following

C:Documents and Settingssin.le>ipconfig

Windows IP Configuration

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected

Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . :
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

Please open Internet Explorer with the address
http://Default Gateway ~

You need to know What is User name & Password to login, please configure "Access Restrictions" to allow access

I hope this is your case.

My Acer Aspire 7520 works just fine. But one day the internet stopped connecting properly. I even tried ethernet cable but still will not work. Help!!!

check for the ethernet card , whether drivers are installed properly or not.. then check IP address provided by ur ISP is entered correctly or not..if DHCP is enabled no need to worry about it... check ur wireless adapters drivers ...reinstall them and ur device wil work properly..

Wi fi connection

Try to check on the device manager if the wireless adapter and the ethernet adapters were installed properly. If it appears with a questionmark, uninstall it and try reinstalling it without the ethernet cable connected.

If you are using Vista system, after installing the adapters, go to the network connections and just click on tcp/ip then click on properties. Exit from the window by clicking ok until all windows will be closed for the network connections. Reboot your pc and try if you can obtain a connection.
