Aspire 5250-0810 Laptop Not Connecting To Perfect Wifi?
Mar 22, 2012
I just purchased a Acer Aspire 5250-0810 yesterday. I sat all day tryin to connect it wirelessly to my wifi connection I have enabled on my phone. It shows the signal strength as great and wont connect. I have tried several things. I have turned Protocal 6 off, protocal 4 off. I have tried to use the diagnos problem and it wont fix the problem. Nor find the problem. I tried to turn off my firewall, but it wont let me. This is all new to me. I am not an idiot by any means when it comes to computers. I have home internet with an ethernet cord, that when I hook it up to my laptop, it works fine, but that's for my desktop and I don't want to be stuck in the same spot all the time. Any suggestions on what I can do to get it to work?
I purchased a brand new Acer Aspire 5250-BZ669 that included Windows 7 just two days ago. Everything is working fine on it except for it randomly looses connection to the internet. I have an established network that I have been using for years. The signal strength is always 5 bars and excellent. I also have a compaq connected to the same network, and it never looses connection. However my Acer will randomly drop connection. I have no idea why. Sometimes it will connect again in minutes or sometimes hours. I am using a Linksys G Wireless Router(Model # WRT54G2), Atheros AR5B125 Wireless Network Driver, and a Atheros AR8152 Controller. I have enabled and disabled in addition to uninstalling and installing the driver and controller many times. I have also moved the router and adapter all over the house. I have downloaded the newest versions of every driver from the Acer website. I have googled for hours looking for the answer to no avail. I run the troubleshoot and the answer it gives me is to make sure all the connections to the router is secure, which it is or else my other laptop wouldn't work.
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 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 a Acer Aspire 5536 laptop, about 3 years old.Over the last year, the WiFi has kept dropping and so I have to physically switch the WiFi on and off, only then will it start working.When it "drops" the globe sign at the bottom of the screen (taskbar) goes and only the 2computers icon is flashing.
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.
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!
My laptop and my android phone wifi's are working properly. However I'm unable to connect wifi in another laptop, a Toshiba Qosmio windows 7. The laptop detects the wifi connection but when I put the key for the wifi it does not connect. My old laptop and phone wifi are working fine. Just not the new laptop
Today I took out my old HP zd8228ea and tried to fix it. I inserted the XP home cd and got it running. Now I'm trying to get it on my wi-fi connection. Im pretty sure it has a wi-fi chip, though im not sure how to tell. And under my connections, it doesnt show wireless connection.
My laptop was working fine but has suddenly stopped connecting to the wifi. All other devices in the house are still connecting, so the router is fine. The laptop can see that the router is there (it comes up in the list of available wireless networks) but just won't connect.
Recently returned from a holiday where thee were various free wifi hotspots. Some needed a password which the cafe just gave you if you asked, others were open. My laptop connected without any problems at all these places except one. Other people at the same cafe did not have any problems but mine would not connect - kept receiving messages about certificates. The cafe owner even tried and could not connect to my laptop. My laptop found the signal okay..
My laptop has recently stopped connecting to my wireless network. There is nothing wrong with the router as all my other wifi devices still work on the network (xbox 360, flatmates laptop etc.) so I assume its something to do with my laptop.I have tried restarting the router and it hasnt worked, neither have any of the windows tools. I have run ipconfig/all while the the connection was down and will post the report at the end of this post (I am currently connected to the internet with an ethernet cable).I have checked that all my drivers are up to date and they are so I dont think that is the problem either. [code]
I have updated drivers for my Toshiba laptop and it wont connect to wifi? why is it so?I had problem with mini port driver but even after updating the driver it is not working. I can see the icon of wifi and the connection options but when I try to it says "connection was unsuccessful this computer currently has limited connectivity to Hostel_06".
I am using Windows XP SP3. The problem which I face is mention as under, When I starts my laptop and its reaches to WinXP screen (appears after BIOS and Before Windows Explorer) at this time if my Laptop WIFI is enable than suddenly a blue screen ( means blue color screen with information which is a glance for me and unable to read) appears and my system goes to restart periodically. Next Scenario appears, system reaches to windows explorer healthy by disable WIFI connection, at the time of enabling WIFI and start search for Networks in range suddenly the same blue screen appears and system goes too halted and need to be restart. For resolving this issue by myself I am trying to reinstall my copy of Windows XP numbers of time but the same issue came in front of me repetitively, I am using my own WIFI router with Internet Connection and there are many others WIFI connection is also available near to my location.
I live near several public hit spots. A geek told me I could configure my PC (XP) or laptop (Win 7) to act as a wifi receiver and connect that to my wireless router to distribute the Internet connection to my Blue-ray and other laptops. I can't figure out the correct steps to make it work.
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.
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.
I have a Acer aspire 5742 laptop using Windows 7. Recently the laptop keeps getting disconnected from the router when using wireless, nothing has changed recently at all, except for sky being put in and using the same splitter not sure if this would affect it or not? Is there anything i can do? Like change the wireless channel or something?
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.
I have a Aspire 5315-2153 Laptop with windows Vista Home.I cannot connect to my wireless anymore. When tries it says Connecting to 2wire296 please wait -- Then it says Conection to WLAN Failed.I am able to connect with my ethernet wire connection just not wireless.I did IPCONFIG/ALL and here what came up.

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.
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.
