Question about Sony Computers & Internet
SOURCE: about wi-fi
Windows XP has a built in wifi configuration tool, previous versions of windows dont have this feature. But if you were to buy a wireless card it comes with software for wireless to work on all versions of windows from 98 - XP most if not all new laptops have wifi built in & that will be able to share your broadband connection through the netgear router. You can configure the laptop & pc to share files & printer between each other, easy way of doing that is by using the wireless network setup wizard which can be found in Start -> All Prograns -> Accessories -> Communications -> Wireless Network Setup Wizard.

If you have tried the default passwords (blank, admin or sysAdmin) and they don't work, you will need to reset it back to factory settings. You can do this by finding a hole at the back of the unit and pressing the hidden switch there for a few seconds. After that it should be back to its original configuration. You will obviously have lost any changes you made to it since you took it out of the box.

First you need to make sure the Wireless drivers are installed in the computer, aswell the Acer Related utilities. Then Most acer laptops have a button on one of the sides or on the top of the laptop to turn on the wireless.
To find out if you have the acer related programs installed, try pressing some of the buttons on the top of the laptop, that are NOT apart of the keyboard, they should open up acer or related programs, if noting happens the programs are not installed, one of the buttons is likely to turn on the wireless.
To check if the wireless drivers are installed press start -> run -> type: msinfo32 (OR press down the windows key and press R, then let go and type msinfo32 into the run menu that comes up and click OK)
On the program, left side, open up components from the + next to it, then find Problem devices from the list and click on it, on the right you will see a list of devices that are not installed or not working.
If the list is empty, everything is properly installed. and you should be able to get your wireless to turn on by pressing on the wireless button on the laptop, and then use your computer to connect to a wireless network.
If you need further assistance let me know.
