Acer Aspire One D225e :: Lost WiFi Connection - Can't Get Back On

Dec 25, 2014

I've been using my netbook at my local library for 3 years. Acouple weeks ago, all of a sudden it lost contact with the library's wifi connection. The librarian tried everything he knew, no results. I later borrowed a laptop from the library, looked up fixes, tried them, but they didn't work.

Here's what happened: Got a padlock with a window saying failed to connect to a Windows service. The dependency service/group failed to start. A troubleshoot resulted in a yellow triangle with an exclamation point in it, saying network proxy settings can't be detected, though it also says detected.

Trying the fix on Acer support--checking to see if TCP/IP is working right--resulted in an error message, TCP/IP improperly installed.
Trying rewriting the registry keys didn't work.
Ditto the remove/reinstall network driver adapter.
Finally it said if this doesn't work, there's likely a hardware problem.

Acer Aspire E15 :: WiFi Connection Disables Router

Sep 21, 2014

I've seen quite a few issues with Windows 8.1 and WIFI on this forum, but this one is a bit different. 
I've got a brand new Aspire E 15 that came with windows 8.1.  When connected to the network by cable everything works fine. When I try to connect via wifi strange things start happening.
I can see my network.  I try to connect and it asks me for the security key.  Then it connects.  About 1 minute later it says it can't find the network.  Other devices that were happily working on that networks wifi suddenly loose connectivity as well (hard wired devices don't seem to be affected).  I end up having to reboot the router so wifi works for the other devices.
I made sure the Atheros AR956 adapter has the latest driver - v10.0.0.285 and all windows and acer updates are installed.

HP ProBook 4330s Networking :: Internet Connection Lost When AC Power Is Removed

Oct 15, 2014

HP probook 4330s
Windows  7  Ultimate + service pack 1  64bit
Driver: RALINK microsoft driver     (up to date when i do a search)
When I remove the ac power external internet is lost.  The wireless connection still appears to be up but there is no traffic. I cannot  ping anything when this occurs.
The only  way to get this  up and  running  again is to 
1. insert ac power
2. restart  the dhcp client service (sometimes have to do this more than once).  The service hasn't stopped, but for some reason this gets it up and  running.
I have also tried  disabling the  "allow computer to turn off this device to save power".  But this did not work....

Acer :: Switch 10 With Windows 8.1 - Bluetooth Connection Works Only IF PC Is Connected To WiFi Network

Oct 28, 2014

I manage to pair my 2-in-1 pc Acer Switch 10 with an externat Bluetooth (bt) device only when the tablet is connected to my home wifi network. As soon as I disconnect from the wifi network, the pairing with the bt device is disabled. If I try to pair the bt device when wifi connection is off, the pairing succeeds just for a few seconds (1 or 2) and then it disconnects.

The support assistance of the bt device, since it actually manages to pair with the pc in such wifi wird conditions, suggested that it probably can be a problem due to the chip of the pc that probably manages both the wifi and the bt connections and is not able to manage them separately.


and updating the bt driver downloaded from the ACER Drivers and Manuals webpage. However, the installation procedure were interrupted as the installed bt driver appears to be "later".

Oct 11, 2014

Got a Aspire one 722 from mom-in-law. She didn't use it much. Sticker says I have a 320GB HDD but Properties only show 284 GB. How do I recover the lost HD space?

I discovered the space holds MS Office but I can't access Office without purchasing it which I have no need for so this is just a closet full of stuff I don't want and apparently I can't use the storage space either.

HP 630 Networking :: WiFi Lost After Formatting Hard Drive And Reinstalling Windows 7

Jul 29, 2014

I have a HP 630 laptop with Windows 7 64 bit ultimate . After formatting the hard drive of the computer, I reinstalled Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate.
Now it can't connect to the internet through wireless. I've tried all the basics: pressing the WIFI enable/disable toggle key on my keyboard, restarting my computer, enabling disabling the internet connection in the network area, etc.
Under Device Manager I see 2 devices related to the wireless internet:

1. Other devices > Network Controller - it has a yellow warning sign next to it - the error is for having no drivers installed.
2. Network adapters > Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller - "This device is working properly."
Below are the hardware ID's for the network controller that is not working: 
What should I do? How can I get my wireless internet to work again?

Acer :: Cracked Back Cover On My Aspire 9410

Dec 5, 2008

I've found a source for the replacement part through EXTENSIVE research- and found an online user manual. I am not used to building/opening laptops, so I don't know whether
I'll need special tools to replace the broken back cover; are there any other parts I may need (such as hinges, antenna WiFi).

Is this even a job I should take on or is it pretty easy?

The LCD is fine- it's JUST the plastic cover I need to replace.

Acer :: Aspire 5735Z - The Connection Was Reset

Aug 6, 2009

My notebook(Acer Aspire 5735Z) has a problem:

It happends with Internet Explorer,Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome,when I post long messages in forums or blogs,or when I upload files in hosting websites like imageshack or megaupload,Firefox tells me that "The connection was reset"

In the other computer I have I can upload files without problems and I don't get errors,the two computers share the same net.

So I don't know why my notebook reacts like that when I try to upload files or write long posts in it only my notebook's problem or is it a Issue of the Acer Aspire 5735Z Notebooks,and how can I repair it?

Acer Aspire V5-573G :: Very Unstable Wireless Connection

Oct 23, 2014

For a while now the wireless connection on my laptop has been very unstable. I had used it for about six months without experiencing problems, but a month or two ago I started getting very frustated with it. 
The wireless can be turned on just fine and has no trouble finding available networks. No problem here. But when I try to connect to one it rarely works, and the few times were it does connect, the internet is incredibly slow. I would say it works flawlessly and fast about 10% of the time. The rest of the time it's like I just explained; it either won't connect or is too slow. 
I don't know what suddenly caused this, since it worked perfectly when I bought it.  Updating the wireless card drivers didn't work.

The laptop doesn't feel overly hot anywhere on it's surface.
