My accer netbook would not connect to wifi at all, it is working when connected to the router. the wifi signal light is not on like it usally is. I restarted it a number of times like i usually do when this happens but this time it won't come back on
earlier this year I bought an Acer AspireOne netbook with Windows 7 startup operating system. It's been working fine until recently when it suddenly does not see our home wifi connection. It shows a list of all our neighbours routers, just not ours. We have various other devices that can see and connect to it just fine (other PCs & laptops, iPhones & smartphones, MacBook Pro etc) A system restore cured the problem the first couple of times, but now that doesn't work. I've tried resetting & restarting the modem & router dozens of times but it does not appear in the list of available networks for the netbook.
When I ran a reset to factory settings of my acer aspire one netbooks which runs windows 7 I no longer have a wireless connection option at all. I have done this before and never lost my ability to connect wirelessly. I tried to look for driver downloads but I'm not even sure what it is I need to do to recover the missing program as it was a original factory program.
I haven't done anything on the computer yet (got to have internet to do that.). The home internet is in the wireless connections icon at the bottom right of the screen, but when I try to connect, it says it's unable to. Would installing 4 gb of ram have a problem?
I just got a used Acer AspireOne AOA150 ZG5 Netbook and upon bringing it home, I received a "Limited or No Connectivity" error when attempting to use the internet via wireless. I have another laptop that connects at the same time with no issues. The Netbook DOES work if I hardwire into my home router. I have since taken the Netbook to work and it connects to the wireless there with no issues. So it seems to be an issue specifically with my home router/modem and this Netbook.So far I have flushed my DNS cache, done the Winsock and reset my TCP/IP, removed wireless profiles, and tried the Repair function.None of that has worked. My wireless properties are also set to automatically obtain the IP address.I'm on XP SP3 and it seems like a lot of folks think that it's a SP3 issue, but I don't think so in my case since the wireless is fine in other locations.

This issue concerns our Acer Aspire1 Netbook. It just suddenly will not let us access our home wireless network. When I followed previous advice by unchecking the IEEE 802.1x box, I received the "40 bit or 104 bit" warning box and upon checking found that the 802.1x box had automatically been rechecked. Needless to say, we still can't access the wireless network.
I recenlty bought an E2500 router. I was able to connect 4 of our laptops at home just fine. But when I tried to connect my Acer One netbook, the "Cisco Connect" loaded up to 25% & then I couldn't connect to the internet. I've contacted Tech Support & they suggested downloading the latest wireless adapter driver. I contacted Acer & they said it sounded like a security issue on my netbook. I was out of warranty so they'd have to charge $150 for tech support.
I cant connect to my sylvania netbook using WiFi. It says cant associate with it, entered network key code and nothing happens. It will say Native WiFiConfig started, associating with network, authenticating to network, failed to associate with network, repeats as it goes thru all the networks. What do I need to do to make it work? Do I need to add a new network?
We purchased our son a Netbook for Christmas - all of our other laptops will connect to our MiFi (Verizon) device but NOT the Netbook?? It states Excellent Strength but after attempting to connect states Failed to associate with the unit.
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?
New wireless router was installed yesterday. I switched from Linksys WRT54G v. 5.0 to Medialink N. I hardwired to desk top first. Then I turned on my laptop and connected to the internet without problems. Next device = Acer Aspire netbook. The netbook receives a strong signal from the router but cannot connect to the internet.
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.
I have Asus EEPC Seashell/ 1015PEM netbook. The wi-fi connects only near/ so close to the wireless router with full signal. Just next room, blocked by a wall it disconnects, but full signal still exists. Is it anything to do with driver or hardware incompatibility- netbook has 802.11n adapter. Wireless router/DI624+ is 802.11g.
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.
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.
Having a problem connecting with my home wifi through this laptop but when using other computers/laptops in within the home they seem to connect fine. it was working fine last night and then when i switched on today it stopped working. the wifi seems to be showing all the networks around the vicinity, but no connection. i ran ipconfig and it seems to state that my 'media is disconnected'
I have an acer travelmate 5720 running windows vista. It seems to connect no problems to some wifi ie my home and a friends wifi but not to work wifi at two different work places. i try to connect and it simply says acquiring ip then fails. It then suggests resetting the routers which makes no idfference. Not sure what to do. Can it be set just to connect to one home wifi without me knowing.
In the last few weeks my wireless has been crap and it's been quite slow, making some pages take forever to load or stuck in a constant loading cycle. Im on a Acer Aspire One D257-13448 netbook with built in Intel Centrino N-100 wireless adapter.
I've tries a lot of things already, resetting my Bell 2Wire modem outer, disabling and re-enabling my wifi, chaning the wireless network name and password, and even chaning the power settings for maximum wireless performance. Though I have noticed a little increase in speed with the last action, its still slower then it was when I first got my netbook back in september. I know the network is fine because my two computer connected by wires work just fine.
I have an acer aspire 3630 and i recently got it, so i decided to update all drivers and i stupidly didn't do a back up now the wifi isnt working, i tried uninstalling the cards, and tried doing what this thread saidi even tried installing all the drivers i could find (broodcom, foxconn, the drivers from the acer site) and nothing is working, my wifi light next to the switch keeps flashing on and off.
