Atheros AR5005G - Acer Aspire 5100 Laptop Won't Recognize Networks

Jul 4, 2011

I just did a clean format on my acer aspire 5100 laptop, everything went flawlessly until the last driver - the network driver. I installed the Atheros WLAN wifi driver and it installed fine. However, it showed a bubble in the task bar saying "Wireless networks detected, click here to connect" so i clicked the bubble and the network connection tab popped up, but it says "No wireless networks were found in range". I don't know what to do, it is recognizing there are networks in range, and then telling me there aren't and none pop up in the list.

The network adapter is: Atheros AR5005G and it is working properly

Edit: I can connect using ethernet, it's just not showing any routers in the network list to connect to

3G Not Working On Acer Aspire 1830 Laptop?

Jan 25, 2012

I have an ACER Aspire 1830 (netbook) and has 3g build in according to the teacher, and it obviously is in because the sim has been put in the laptop (The scrap is in the box from the sim). Everytime I try to use it it says that my APN is incorrect.

I have taken a few steps to try and fix this:

1. I have changed the APN to all of the possible ones from Telstra (telstra.internet, telstra.data, etc.), and none of them seemed to have worked.

2. I asked a friend who has the same laptop whos 3g IS working to check the details on his laptop, and there is no APN or user/pass in his laptop.

Acer Laptop 5733Z Aspire User Manual?

Oct 18, 2011

I don't think I ever set up my laptop for home WIFI. There is only one choice, (being Belkin) in Home Group and would like to take my puter to another room in my house using my WIFI modem occasionally. It did work fantastic at a friends house hooking up to their WIFI. I have been looking for a manual to download, but can't seem to find one on line or at the Acer home page.

Dir-615 - Acer Aspire 1640 Laptop Cannot Connect To Wifi?

Oct 13, 2012

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.

My computer is a notebook by acer - Aspire 1640

Acer Aspire 5534 Laptop Connected To Network But No Internet

Jan 22, 2011

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.

Wifi Works On Smartphone But Not On Acer Aspire 6935 Laptop?

Nov 26, 2012

My laptop works fine on my network for 80% of the time but the rest of the time I get yellow triangle and the system says limited access. The annoying bit is that when this happens my smartphone is still connected to my wifi network and works perfectly so I can only assume there is a fault on the laptop. I take out the network adapter plug then plug it in and the laptop usually reconnects but sometimes it can take about half an hour!

My laptop is an acer aspire6935 and the operating system is windowsvista home premium. The wireless router is connected to a desktop via a yellow data cable.

Acer Aspire 5741 Laptop No Longer Connects To Internet?

Aug 25, 2012

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.

N300 Wnr2200 - Wifi Dropping Randomly On Acer Aspire 3820tg Laptop

Sep 20, 2011

I recently bought a netgear n300 wnr2200 router. The first day I set up the network and everything worked fine ( my ISP don't require any passwords etc, standard automatic set up - basically just typing a SSID and a password ( WEP)). The Internet worked perfectly and my iPhone, iPad, ps3 all connects without any problems whatsoever! without any more management than typing password. My laptop, acer aspire 3820tg (windows 7) worked perfectly the initial day. After this it struggles to connect. I will sometimes get the "could not connect to ...." message. Sometimes using the troubleshoot it wil fix the problem by itself. Most times not,

What is weird is that even if I get a connection I will at random intervals get " local access only" or completely dropping the connection. ( then it usually will not connect again) He wifi signal is 100%. I'm not able to make it work in a stable fashion. I have tried updating to the latest network driver for my laptops broadcom wifi adapter (from acer driver site) but this changed nothing. Turning on/off the wifi adapter does not work. Rebooting sometimes works but it's completely random. Sometimes going to network properties and enabling active settings for WLAN will let it connect (sorry if this is not the correct wording, my windows is in Norwegian) (it's the lowest box that you can check, and when this is done you can press "configure" . When pressing it just says cisco something is enabled and showing an "okay box " )

When connecting to the router, it says it has the latest firmware.

Example today: I boot pc, get an error message saying it cannot connect. I try letting windows solve it- doesn't work. I try reboot - doesn't work. I try activate WLAN settings - doesn't work. I reboot the pc - doesn't work. Third reboot (only difference is that pc is placed in a different table in my living room) and I magically get a connection. With active WLAN setting being enabled prior to boot!

I moved my pc 5 meters to another table, wifi signal is 100% but it starts dropping to only local connection !?!? I move back, and it's working again.. Funny thing is that the router is only 7 meters from the table where it's not working ( this could be a coincidence) and i can use the wifi in rooms much further away with devices that shouldn't have better WLAN adaptors(such as iPhone). I have never had any trouble with Internet connections on wifi with this laptop prior to this!

Acer Aspire Won't Connect To Internet?

Jan 26, 2013

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.

Acer One Aspire Shows Connected But Isn't?

Aug 2, 2011

My Acer One Aspire wireless connection shows connected but I cant get any Firefox browser to work.

I have a D-link DIR-825 router and it has worked every time except today. I havent used my Netbook very much at home though, maybe a few times a year as I usually take it with me on trips.

I attempted to narrow down the problem. I called D-link as my router was still under warranty. They advised clearing all my old connections and rebooting but I got the same problem. I told them my Sony PS3 works, so they suggested I contact Acer as they think it is not the router. My direct hardwire connection also works.

I then took my Netbook to Best Buy and it worked there. The guy said they can pay a visit to my house as it is probably interference of some sort. This will cost $100. Why would my PS3 work if it was interference? Maybe it�s the proximity of my Netbook to something, but I tried it near my PS3 and it still had the same problem.

Id rather try to solve the problem myself first. I havent changed anything except a modem and Windows 7 updates.

Acer Aspire 5738Z - Cannot Connect To Anything

Nov 22, 2012

I have a Acer Aspire 5738Z (Pentium Dual-Core T4200 Processor 2.0GHz, 3GB RAM) laptop for a long time now I've had problems with my internet connection. Quite often the laptop will connect to the wireless network but then very soon after it will go from being able to access "local and internet" to it just saying it can access just "local" meaning that when this happens I cannot connect to anything. often i disconnect from the wireless network then re connect to it and the internet will come back briefly but I am having to do this procedure over and over again and I know there must be something which I can do about it.

Acer Aspire One Won't Connect To Wifi

Aug 13, 2012

My family recently purchased an Acer Aspire One netbook running Windows 7. Unfortunately, once I got it out of the box and tried to connect to the internet, I had some problems.My family predominantly uses Apple devices - in fact, this netbook is the only PC that we have in the house. All of our Apple devices work wonderfully with our current Wi-Fi connection (iPhone, iPad, MacBooks, etc).The Acer is able to detect our wireless, and it even says that it's "connected" with excellent signal strength. However, it says it is an "Unidentified Network" with "no internet access." To see if this problem limited to just that wi-fi connection, I hooked up my Verizon Wireless Mi-Fi and it worked just fine with the Acer.

Acer Aspire One Zg5 Will Not Work Wirelessly

Mar 30, 2013

My Acer had been working fine wirelessly for years and years. This is a long story so get ready. My acer runs windows xp. Its a netbook as well. That much said I was surfing the web and at a point I noticed connection was gone. I looked at the icon in the below tray and it had a yellow caution and it also indicated little or no connectivity. I tried uninstalling driver then having system recognize it. None of the tricks I know resulted in it working. The two things I noted were Low or no connectivity or it gets hung on validating identity. Sometimes I see something about unable to access or read a certificate. Ok I tried my other net book and it connects to the home wireless no problem. The acer will connect to my paid wireless (credit card size type) if connected via usb cable. So i thought ok the internal net-books wireless adapter is broke so i go buy a wireless usb adapter. Now I show two wireless icons. neither one actually connects. Basically same results as if I never had the usb modem. Now I have done several system recovery operations with same results. one of them was with the on hd hidden partition and also from CD?

Atheros AR5700EG - Unable To View Available Wireless Networks

Sep 23, 2012

There are a ton of posts about this issue, and I have tried everything. I have an ASUS Eee 1040 PC with an Atheros AR5700EG wireless network adapter running on Windows XP. I've had the computer for a couple years and it has worked fine, until recently. Using inSSIDer, I can view all wireless networks within range, but using Windows, I cannot connect to any wireless networks. It gives me the message that "No wireless networks were found in range." I had a few hotspots that I would regularly use and they are not showing up in the list of preferred networks. I know for certain that some of the hotspots that are within range are indeed broadcasting their ssid. I can only connect if I manually add a hotspot as a preferred network and configure it with the correct security settings. Even then, viewing available wireless networks gives nothing, and Windows doesn't remember the hotspot. Here is what I have tried:restarted Wireless Zero Configuration service checked windows files haven't changed using sfc /scannow in a command window updated the driver for the wireless adapter rebooted the computer kicked and screamed

What else can I do short of reinstalling windows?
