Acer Laptop Won't Connect To Internet - Local Only
Aug 7, 2012
so I have an Acer laptop, and it won't connect to the internet. Whenever I try it says Local Only and won't let me access anything on the web. This happened a few months ago, and I had recently switched to a new router. I know this question has been asked before, but I've tried all the non-specific solutions, and non of them worked.
Also it won't even connect when I use a non-wireless, ie cable, connection.
I have an ACER Aspire 57422-4459 with windows 7. I had a virus on my laptop not to long ago but after having it removed I have not been able to log into a wireless network. It says that there is something wrong with the modem BUT My stepmother has the exact same computer and hers works perfectly (I'm actually on hers right now) also my phone and playstation 3 will get online with no problem
I have had my Acer windows vista laptop for about 3 years but it has only been this past year it has stopped connecting to the internet, which means i have to use a cable to access the internet, but im pretty sure its not the ruter because my brothers laptop connects fine, and his is a very old laptop!
I have an ACER Aspire 5552 laptop. A couple of days ago started having problems connecting to the Internet. Seems to connect to WiFi ok but no Internet connection. I know the router's fine and there is Internet connection because my phone's connected to Internet fine. Even when I use Ethernet cable, it still says there is no Internet connection.
I've just recently bought a second hand Acire laptop is v.good condition, it does everything fine apart from connect via wireless.I have another laptop which can connect on it's wireless and the Acer laptop can get a connection if you use a network cable directly to the router.I have a Sky phone & Broadband package.

I am at my friend's house and she cannot connect her Acer laptop to the her own wifi (netgear router). Her iPad and my laptop (lenovo) both can connect to the wifi. This would lead me to believe that the issue is with her computer but her computer can connect to other wifis in the area...just not her own. I am not sure what is causing this...it may be that program "Acer eNet Management" but that still doesn't explain why she can connect to other wifis and not her own. Is there maybe a compatability issue with netgear and her wifi card?
I have a acer laptop and a netgear dgn1000. i can connect wifi to other divices just not my laptop. it work fine with ethernet. i have clicked the enable button so it isnt checked and a few other things from the internet but nothing works.
ACER aspire 7520 windows vista 32bit LAPTOp copyright 2007..This damn thing will not connect wirelessly to my DLINK router (which works great for my desktop and xboxlive) the laptop used to connect, and work great, but recently has no connected or been a poor connection.even now i have the laptop beside the router it says connection is excellent but wil not load webpages, msn, etc it uses the Acer enet management window and says WLAN is connect and 54mps but NOTHING! is happening! internet WILL NOT LOAD! and in the other room has poor connection, it used to work great. everything does (desktop and router) except the laptop in the last few weeks.
I recently upgraded my dads(vista rig) to windows 7. It ran fine, had all the drivers, etc. The wifi works fine on my home network. However, at his house it's not connecting. I'm currently trying to get model numbers, etc to try and figure it out but in the meantime I was wondering what things to check while waiting on that information? His phone and my sisters laptop connected to the wifi just fine(so he says) but his laptop won't.
I find out but I plan on going over there after work(45 minute drive) and wanted to have a list of things to check so I don't have to do it in multiple trips.
I just recently bought a wireless router (DIR-615) from dlink. After installing it my laptop cannot connect to the wifi network but all other devices(iphones,etc..) can. After speaking with the dlink techs they told me it probably was a problem with my wifi adapter. I downloaded the latest driver with no success. I don't know what to try anymore.
I have an Acer Laptop that runs on Vista and run my AT&T 3g wireless card on it and it browses the web as if I had a cable connection, however, the I try to use the same card on my Dell that runs on XP and has 768 MB of Ram but it can take over a minute to pull up a website. Should I get more ram though the min requirements for XP are 256 for this connection?
Recently we have set up internet in our student accommodation flat and for some strange reason the internet speed seems to be incredible low when I am connected using wireless. I am trying to download some stuff and the download speed drops below 10kb/s. The internet speed is very temperamental as it can be fine for a minute and then it will suddenly drop really low. If I disconnect from and reconnect to the network the speed will be high again then it will drop really low again. If I am connected via an ethernet cable the speed is fine and does not drop at all.My ISP is Orange, and I am using an Acer 8930G laptop. Some of my flat mates are experiencing this as well but some aren't. I was wondering whether or not it could just be a laptop thing or a router thing. The speed can drop that low that I can not even browse web pages.
The computer has a strange habit of dropping my internet connection after it's been turned on for a while. I've already checked to make sure that the setting which allows windows to turn the wireless adapter off to save power is disabled, and I've set my laptop up to use a static IP address which no other device should be using. I'm connecting via wifi.The only way I know to fix the problem is to restart the computer whenever the problem presents itself.I have a motorola surfboard modem and a linksys e1000 router.The computer always says that I am connected and that I have full signal, but it displays an exclamation point over the internet icon saying 'no network access'
I have a Acer 5552 laptop and today it just stopped getting internet connection. I tried resetting the router and the computer neither worked. I also have a desktop and another laptop in my house and both of them are working and connecting fine. I am not sure what is going on. It finds the connection and says it is connected but then nothing will come up.
The router is Canyon Cn-WF514, my laptop is Acer aSpire 5755G with wndows7 x64.Password protection and mac filtering are disabled. I'm connecting to the router from my other laptop Acer 5730z without problems and everything is fine on it. I tried changing the wireless driver on my laptop,Here are some pics of router settings.
Last night I was just online in my dorm using wired internet like I always do and it suddenly just stopped working. It hasn't been working since and it won't connect to anything. However my wifi internet works just fine but I'd like to use wired again for faster speed. I run windows 7 on an Acer laptop.

Everytime, I turn on the ADSL2+ wireless modem router, it connects to the internet and my laptop gets paired with the wireless network but after 30 mins time, wireless ADSL2+ router restarts itself and goins in a loop for nearly 5 times and then it gets connected to internet but then I cannot connect my laptop to the the router using wireless with error DHCP failed to assign IP but DHCP is enabled in the router. This has started since a month and I had tried several network change settings but nothing has given me a solution. I do use Kaspersky IS through which the connection flows in. My internet setting is set to use Automatic DNS discovery and most time, I get RC 102 DHCP error.
My ancient HP desktop connects to the network via wired connection. My laptop connects wirelessly (usually). Both have very strong signals from the router and the desktop connects to the internet just like always, but the laptop isn't getting the internet signal. The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5534 (Costco special) and the router is a Linksys Simultaneous Dual Band N-type. The only real significant thing that was done on the laptop was to install Adobe Shockwave Player with Norton Scan. I already have McAfee on the laptop tho, so I uninstalled the Norton. I'm going to do a system restore in a moment.
I have a window 7 acer laptop, 3 as a matter of fact, i just upgraded to charter high speed internet and i have this new router its called ubee router/modem i have no trouble with my window xp with the wire less connection, but on the 3 windows 7 computers they will drop or lose the wireless conection and we have to refresh the network and it will do okay untill its shut off and it might connect, charter. If i use a direct cable no problems at all. even if i set the router up with no wepkey it will still drop wireless umm what could i do to correct this
One of my laptops (Acer Aspire 5741) won't connect to the internet, it stopped connecting last night at around 9pm UK time. It shows an ! in a triangle over my Internet Access bars. When I troubleshoot the message is 'Your broadband modem is experiencing connectivity issues'. My Compaq mini netbook is not experiencing any problems though. I have tried resetting the router, removing and readding the home network and checking the security key is correct -I do also have a VPN from my university which has been installed since April without any problems. Both the laptop and notebook use windows 7 and Firefox.
Me and my family have a PC that runs on Windows Vista service pack one. We have it hooked up to the Internet (Verizon DSL). And knock on well it has a great connection and has never given us any problems.We run a LAN line on this connection. No wireless at all. Yes we are still in the stone age. Well the other day my mother gave my step daughter her laptop ( Dell Latitude D610, it has Windows XP service pack two on it). They had it set up for wireless. So, I disabled that connection and went to the LAN connection that was set up and enabled it. Everything was set to obtain a address. I hooked up a Ethernet cable that went from the DSL straight to the laptop. No connection at all, not even a local one.So then I read the other day that you could type in the IP, Subnet and Gateway address from the working PC into the laptop and things should work. Well, I did this. Yes, I did get a local connection but still nothing on the Internet side. Then I thought, hmm maybe it needs to be done threw a router. I had a NETGEAR (Fast Ethernet Switch) FS 108 so I hooked everything up to that.
My PC connection works great. Very fast. However the laptop still, no luck. I left the IP, Subnet and Gateway address the same on the laptop. At first I got a error message saying that there was two machines on the same network using the same IP address(or something to that effect). So, I went back to the lap top and clicked to obtain a address. And got no connection at all. No local or internet. On the laptop I have released and renewed using the various Ipconfig commands. I have pinged the new address and it was a success. That address is 169.254.181.107. I Pinged the Subnet and it too cam back a success. I tried pinging a web page and no luck at all. I also have power cycled everything. And still the same result. Oh and when I did the Ipconfig /renew to get the address above it never did give me a default gateway. It came up blank.The laptop did have Norton Internet protection on it so disabled it. Or at lest I think I did. I right clicked on it and disabled it. So, I think I did it right. I also disabled the windows firewall and still no luck.The PC connections work great and it's hooked up threw the router as well. Just having trouble with the laptop.I would run the Ipconfig /all cmd on the laptop, but as I said I cant hook it up to the computer nor do I have any recordable CD's or a usb drive.
i have factory reset my Toshiba laptop un clicked ipv6 but a setting in vista only gives me local or limited connectivity and im unable to access the internet and my other Toshiba laptop allows me full access along with my phone allows full access to the wireless network therefore tells me the router is not the cause?
I have an Acer Aspire 3810T, recently I reloaded windows 7 to get rid of a virus. It functioned normally for about a day and then it stopped connecting to the internetEvery other wifi enabled device I have connects just fine so its not my modem. It says its connected to the network but there's no internet access. I've tried troubleshooting, but the only suggestion it gives me is to reset my modem, which I know isnt the problem.
I have an Acer Aspire X3950, the computer was on standy-by, but my dad didn't know and pressed the power button, suddenly turning it off. When he turned the computer back on, the internet no longer worked.
