If it does not already have one installed, yes you will, or you could opt for a USB network dongle

To whom can help, The wireless is not working on my ASUS Eee PC 1000HA. It's working on every other laptop in my house so, it is turned on, it's just not working on my Eee PC 1000HA. Thank you, Dr.M.Seus


Right click the wireless icon in the lower right hand corner by your clock and click view available wireless networks. Then select configure advanced settings. Click on the wireless networks tab.
In the lower part of the screen select your wireless network and remove it. Reboot the laptop
Once back on, view available wireless networks again, double click yours and join it again. It may ask you for your password so make sure you have that handy.

M trying to activate my wireless connection for my acer x1200 do I need a disk or can I press certain buttons to activate the wireless


You should be able to see there might be an antenna on the back of your computer which is part of the wireless network adaptor. I checked the specification of your computer and did not see wireless card included. You may need to buy one internal wireless card or a USB wireless card to use wireless feature. You will need to install the driver and configure it to use a wireless access point on some of the wireless cards. Usually you can turn on wireless by using network connection or using the connect to item in the start menu if you are using Windows Vista.

You need a network card that is functioning to connect to anything.
If your network card in the desktop stops functioning, you will need to replace it (or, if it's built into the motherboard, add a card).
Unless you have a wireless card also installed, you cannot connect wirelessly.

Has An Acer Travelmate 243LC laptop got a build-in Wireless?


The link below will take you to a page on the Acer Web site that shows the specs for this laptop. According to the specs, this laptop does not come with onboard wireless (if this feature were part of the system, it would be listed in the specs). Also, you can check Device Manager to see if you have a Wireless Adapter listed under Network Adapters. If you don't see any type of Wireless adapter listed then you'll definitely know that your laptop doesn't have it built in.

To access Device Manager:
Right-click My Computer
Click Properties
Click Manage
In the left navigation pane, click Device Manager.
In the larger window, scroll down the list to Network Adapters.
Expand the Network Adapters tree to see the installed adapters.

http://www.acersupport.com/notebook/html/tm243lc_specs.html

However, the specs do show that this laptop has 2 PC Card slots. These slots give you at least a couple of options for connecting to the Internet. You can buy an Air Card that is installed in one of the PC Card slots when you want to use it to access the Internet. My company used to provide Air Cards for laptop users through AT&T. The advantage is that you have an uninterrupted connection to the Internet no matter your location.

You can also buy a WiFi card that fits into a PC Card slot. This card will be your Wireless NIC (adapter) providing you with the means to set up connections to wireless networks. Linksys is a pretty good brand and fairly easy to install and support. After installation and configuration, you can pop the card in your PC Card slot anytime you want to connect to a Wireless network then remove it when it's no longer needed.

I hope this helps you connect wirelessly using your laptop. Please rate this solution and thanks for using Fixya.

Wireless switch


Although the wireless switch on your Acer does turn on/off your wireless card, you will also need to make sure that your operating system (Windows) has the wireless card enabled.

Do the following:
  1. Go to Control Panel (Start -> Control Panel)
  2. Double-click Network Connections
  3. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection / WLAN (you can tell it is disabled if the icon is greyed)
    3dce7ab.jpg
  4. Click on "Enable" (if you see Disable, your network is already enabled)
You should check the bottom-right-hand area of your screen (in the menu bar) for your wireless icon. If this is not appearing, you'll have to go into Network Connections again and do the following:
  1. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection (your wireless network adapter)
  2. Select Properties
  3. Click the checkbox that says "Show icon in notification area when connected"

  4. Now click on the Wireless Networks tab (at the top of this dialogue box)
  5. Scan for a network and connect to it.

uninstall the driver and restart PC, the PC should autodetect the hardware, slap in the cd that came with it and reinstall drivers. If that fail open device manager to see if their is any conflicts. If not the card went bad and youl need to get a new one.
