Laptop won't connect to internet

I have 2 PC's. One is an Acer 5100 laptop and the other is an Acer desktop. I can get on the internet with my desktop but not with my laptop although it indicates that I am connected to the D-Link router and internet connection is complete. What could be wrong? Tom

Your internet link is connected but your browser is not configured for wireless.usually once connected,if you restart laptop you can access internet.if this dont help right click on ur wireless icon(in sys tray) and select properties;in property box check wireless connections.
if ur not using a wireless manager put tick in box for let windows manage.press ok or apply.then restart.

Aspire 5100 PC Notebook: How do i get my new Acer Laptop to connect to the ...


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. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.102
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

Please open Internet Explorer with the address
http://Default Gateway ~ http://192.168.1.1

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

I hope this is your case.

Hi,
the hardware button for the wireless connection in your laptop must be switch off so you need to turn on the wireless switch and you should have internet connection after that.

Can not get wireless connection on asus notebook


Hi,

Try resetting the network adapter.

On the bottom right hand side of the desktop you will see the wireless icon, right click on that ans click on troubleshoot problems. This will reset the adapter and assign an IP address for your your PC.

When its done try to connect to the internet.

If this advice does not help please post back.




Good luck.

Laptop will not connect! But others will. HELP!


Yes,there is. Make a note of allowed sites on your old settings and put then in on your new settings. Or restore to the last known good point and save the settings in your documents folder and restore to your new point and import the settings from your documents.

Acer notebook usb not recognized


Sounds like a hardware issue. I would guess that there is a bad connection between the usb's and the motherboard. If you are comfortable dismanteling the laptop and re-soldering the usb's than give that a try, but I would recomend you give it to a pro.
Here is a link that explains the process. http://www.insidemylaptop.com/taking-apart-acer-aspire-5100-laptop/
