Acer :: Aspire One Wireless (new WiFi Module)
The Aspire One is a great machine that, for me, was mildly crippled by a finicky Wi-Fi connection. There has been some discussion about this on other parts of the web. For some people, the actual wireless module turns on and off occasionally. For other people, the wireless connects and works just fine, but then won't work for a few minutes - but doesn't disconnect from the router. After a brief wait, the internet works again.
I had the problem of the module remaining connected but not working. Fooling with various settings helped, but it was still not as good as it should be, so I decided to replace the module with an Intel 4965AGN wireless module. This is the easiest fix for those who have this problem and have been frustrated by a solution. I say "easy," because it was easy to spend $35 for the module on eBay and install it, rather than spend another 3 hours fiddling with the settings.
I followed the disassembly guide here to take the keyboard and top panel off. This guide is great, and the author did a nice job with the descriptions..............

Acer :: Is There A Wireless Module For 5315
My Aspire 5315 laptop states that my transmitter module is a AR5BXB63 module. I am assuming this is for b/g. Is there a Atheros module for b/g/n that might be a plug in for the one I now have in my Acer laptop ? Would the antenna have to be diferentfor all three b/g/n or not ?
Acer :: Aspire 3610 EPM Module Not Found
Whenever I try to launch Acer ePowerManagement I receive the following error:
The specified module could not be found.
I have uninstalled the program, deleted the driver and re-installed the program but to no avail.
I can right-click the ePowerManagement icon in the task bar and change cpu speed and Brightness but I can not launch the utility.
I am running Windows XP Home on an Aspire 3610.
Has anyone ever experienced this error and resolved it?
Acer :: Will Aspire One Mini Xp Have Wifi
The model I am looking to get is the Acer Aspire One 160gb 6 celled battery, 8.9" 1gb Ram WinXP based system.
After reading a bit about people having connectivity problems (very big deal for me in a laptop), I'm scared on whether or not I should buy it. Everything else looked great but I don't really know Acer at all, so the idea that they could have shipped out defective Wifi chips and not fix it due to costs could be a reality.
However, when looking at reviews, it seems like everyone who is having these problems have 1) the LINUX version, and 2) the NON-6 celled battery version (120gb Aspire 512 ram 349$ version) and no one seems to differentiate between these (I don't know if it actually makes a difference though).
So, are there connectivity problems on the Acer Aspire One or is this an isolated problem that could happen to all notebooks?

Acer :: Aspire 5613 Wifi Upgrade
I`m trying to upgrade my 5613 wifi.
Ordered a new Atheos mini pci card.
After installing the new card the computer says "no wireless device"..
I cant turn on the wifi card from the button on the front.
Tried to update both drivers and bios without any luck.
Changed back to the old card, and this has also the same problem now!
Tried to delete device in device manager and do a new installation...
Still the same.....
So now I cant get my wifi to work!
Anyone knows if its possible to upgrade the wifi on a 5613 to N?
Acer :: Aspire 4730 And 4730Z WiFi
I have both a 4730 and 4730z. The network cards are not identical but my issue is. I'm trying to connect to my 5GHz N network from the Netgear WNDR3300 router. Neither system displays this network in the available networks display. I can only see the 2.4GHz network. I have tested the router with a Toshiba wireless N and an HP g. Both of these laptops can view both networks and connect to the N 5GHz network. The Toshiba, since it is an N, can connect at the higher speed. The HP can connect to it but will only connect at the g speed. So I do not believe I have a problem with the router. I have been trying to get a response from Acer tech support for 2 days;
Acer :: Aspire 5044 WiFi - Windows 7 RC
Before I start I know exactly what a RC version of the OS is and that it is expected to have bugs and other annoyance, as well as no official driver support etc.
But wondering if anybody has a fix to this problem:
The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5044 WLMi, 1.8ghz Turion, 1.5GB Ram, 80GB HDD. Windows 7 has installed correctly and is running. Drivers for all the hardware have been successfully installed and the laptop is running just as well as a Windows XP fresh install.
Only problem is that although the Wireless Card (Atheros AR5005G) is showing as functioning correctly in Device manager, the laptop is not picking up the wireless network in our house even, no matter where I take the laptop to................
Acer :: Aspire 5930G Clean Install WiFi
I just reinstalled my Acer Aspire 5930G (844G32BN) with Vista Home Premium. Everything looks fine except the wireless connection. My computer cannot find any wireless networks (although my other notebook finds all 3 around me). It looks like as if the notebooks WiFi signal would not work.
Could anyone tell me what exact drivers the original installation have? I tried the Intel ProSet/Wireless drivers now. The WiFi led flashes, but cannot find any networks.With the original installation I had no problem regarding the WiFi.

Acer :: Aspire 4810T Wifi Randomly Disconnects And Reconnect
That is, the wifi connection randomly disconnects and reconnects, which is especially annoying when she is on MSN or whenever she is logged on to a HTTPS site (she has to log in again on the next refresh).
maybe Acer has a new driver for the 5100?
the OS installed is the factory Vista (with the usual bloatware - I deleted most of them). Can deleting certain Acer bloatware cause wifi issues?
Acer :: Aspire 5515 WiFi Will Not Connect To Any Internet Service
I recently purchased an Acer Aspire 5515 Laptop. Has a built in Wireless card. It detects the hotspots with no problem. It connects to the available networks with no problem. But it will not connect to any internet service. Strange, but that is also what trouble shooter says. Connects to network, but not to internet, thus browser cannot resolve to any URL.
I even disabled firewall to see if it would help, but it will not.
Even has issues trying to network at home using ethernet cards. Detects, but will not connect.
Acer :: Aspire 5315 Model Icl50 With Vista - Wifi
I have a friend who bought an Acer Aspire 5315 model icl50 with Vista from her nephew. He included a router with it which he used to get online. I have a desktop and know nothing about notebooks. I have an idea of the function of a router but what I'd like to know is does she have to use the router to access the internet? Can't she use a wifi card instead? If so what kind? She lives in a rural area that doesn't have cable internet services and her only option has been AT&T dsl which she really doesn't care for as AT&T keeps having problems with it and it's a toss of the coin on which days it wants to work.
Acer :: Aspire 8730g-6353 Intel 5100 Wifi Link
i have just purchased a new acer aspire 8730g-6353 and for some reason i cannot connect to the internet wirelessly. i can see the networks available and attempt to connect, but i'm never given the chance to input the WEP key to connect. it gives me an error telling me my troubleshooting options (which just alludes to it being a problem with signal or some garbage like that, but there is 100% signal strength at any given time).

Then i desided to try right beside the router and it worked. then when i walked from the router(5 feet) the connection sais limited connection. 8 feet no connection the same happened when i tryed to do it at my friend.
Acer :: Aspire 5935G: No Wireless
I'm in the UK and just received this laptop today as a gift. It was not brand new but quite new. I was warned that maybe the wireless isn't working.
I've run the recovery partition. Win 7 64 bit Home Premium.
The Wireless Networks icon always has a red X. Other wireless devices are working fine.
In Device Manager everything looks correct: Reported to be a
Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card.
However on the Acer drivers page the two WLAN offerings are both Intel
Service & Support
Wireless LAN Intel Wireless LAN Driver (5100/5300/5150/5350) 18.104.22.168 4.8 MB 2009/10/21
Wireless LAN Intel Wireless LAN Driver (CondorPeak) 22.214.171.124 7.1 MB 2009/10/23
I guess the second is correct ?
I played around and at one point the router was detected but no connection after trying the password.
I rebooted ... now Dell again and I can't remember/ reproduce the steps that helped. Red X. Everything else appears to work.
Do I need a new WLAN card ? Different drivers ?
Would I need to buy a PCI express wireless card thingy ?
Acer :: Aspire One Wireless Without Power
I bought an Acer Aspire one, it is perfect, it works perfectly when connecting to the internet if i have the power supply plugged in.
I take the power supply out and the screen dims.... no internet, or the internet i have is working, non working.....
I have tried the settings, i have tried redoing the wireless connection... its just not happening! Im close to taking it back to the shop as i have only had it three weeks!
Acer :: Wireless On Aspire 6530
got the laptop and everything works great except the wireless. It connects to wireless fine, but if it goes into standby mode (like when you shut the cover or leave it for a wile), I am not able to get the wireless mode to come on. I press the easy launch button that enables and disables the wireless. After pressing the button, it says wireless enabled or disabled, but nothing happens, the orange light does not come on, and it doesn't even try to connect. When I manually serach for networks, it doesn't see any.
It's like the wireless function is still disabled. I have no problem connecting if I reboot and no problems with other laptops connecting.
Acer :: Aspire 6930g Wireless
i recently got an Aspire 6930g , very nice lappy etc, the only issue i have is , when i'm using the wireless and the laptop is not on charge , the wireless will disconnect itself , then reconnect, 3 times already whilst typing this, edit 4 times , it doesn't matter how much charge is in the battery , it still does it
when on charge the wireless works perfectly , i've had my other Acer laptop connected at the same time , and that works ok whether on charge or not , so its deffo something in the 6930
changed settings as much as i could , but to no avail
Acer :: Aspire 5633 And Wireless
I have recently purchased a Acer Aspire 5633 laptop from Comet, as it was £399 for a fairly decent spec with inbuilt wireless.
But i can't get it to connect to my router what so ever.
I am using a Belkin Wireless G Router F5D7230-4.
I have tried changing the security level from WPA PSK to WPA2 PSK and have tried WEP 64 bit too. But it won't connect at all.
Acer :: Wireless On Aspire 1410
I recently purchased an aspire 1410 and have found the wireless card to be extremely unstable. Unless I am standing within 3 ft. of the modem/router, I lose the signal.
Not what you imagine when you purchase a netbook to use around the house. And I have had another notebook that picked up the signal flawlessly, so this is either the wireless card in this machine or a driver issue.
Acer :: Aspire 5520I Want To Disable Wireless
I want to disable the wireless lan from connecting to the internet every time I reboot the computer. It is driving me nuts with all the securutiy connections and I think it makes my laptop crash, because it is trying to do stuff.... Actually I have no idea, I just dont want to have to push the disable wireless lan connection every time I reboot.
I would like to push the button to connect to wireless lan if I so choose to do so.
Acer :: Connecting Wireless Aspire 8730
I'm having probs connecting wireless my Acer Aspire 8730. I had this issue 5 days into buying this laptop. It seems to be an intermittant problem as sometimes it connects fine but other times it doesn't. Sometimes it finds other available networks but not my router. Comet sent the laptop back to Acer who insist there's not a problem with the network card. I did find a setting on my router for extended range that we have checked but the problem still persists. If I connect via the ethernet cable then no problems but if I sit the laptop next to the router it still doesn't connect wireless. It seems to have completely lost the plot over Christmas and can now find absolutely nothing wirelessly. I could try changing the router but I'm a bit loathed to do this as we have aother laptop that runs fine via my router. I'm not sure where to go from here as I know both Comet and Acer will deny there's a problem.
Acer :: Enabling Wireless On My Aspire 5612WLMi
I am having trouble enabling wireless on my Acer Aspire 5612WLMi. The sliding button on the front of my laptop does not appear to be working and is saying No device detected. My husband's laptop has had no troubles picking it up so assume it is something with mine. I am running Windows XP.
Acer :: Aspire 1360 Wireless Internet
I got an Aspire 1360...has worked great since the last month. The wireless has been having a mind of its own. All of my other wireless computers are working and theres no router conflict. I can stand right beside the router and there will be no connection. I took out the wireless card underneath and put it back in hoping that it would do something to make it work...but sure enough its going all wacko. Sometimes it'll stay at 54/sec or it'll go down to 24, back up to 36 and then to 1mbps all within a matter of like 3 seconds...
Acer :: Aspire 5050 Wireless (Atheros AE5007EG)
I got my Acer Aspire 5050 by September 2007 and filled it with many applications already until I found that its performance was depressing. Then I decided to format my computer and re-install the Windows.
After re-install everything, I just found out that I got a separated CD for the wireless adapter (Atheros AR5007EG + Realtek Ethernet) from the reseller. But I already installed the driver from the original Acer CD.
But it appears that the wireless doesn't work properly as the figures for Received/ Sent packet data are very extreme (this morning I tried and they were 126/ 6) <=- is this a problem? It also got timed out when I tried to connect to my home server, which is located just a staircase away, from my room.
When I go online downstairs, putting my laptop 2 metres from the router, the connection is going just fine.
I tred to install the driver from the separated CD and even searched for the newest update of the device on the internet, but both didn't really help. I got good connection only after I installed the drivers. But after I turned off the laptop for several hours, it couldn't connect to the internet just as before.
Acer :: Aspire 5920G Wireless Suddenly Lose Connectivity
I have an Acer Aspire 5920G, with the Intel 3945AGB wireless card. I've had issues with the wireless for some time, where it would suddenly lose connectivity and I would have to reboot for it to find any wireless networks. Yesterday, however, it lost connectivity again, and now is unable to connect even after several reboots.
The wifi switch is on and lights up. Acer eNet manager tells me there are no wireless networks, whereas Windows Vista's network manager tells me that I'm either a) Connected to my wireless network but with a limited connection or b) Not connected at all, but wireless networks (including my own) are available. It always fails to connect. My wireless router is a Dlink DIR-615.
I've tried inputting the WEP key again, no results. I've tried rolling back the wireless device driver (to 126.96.36.199), no results.
My husband has an identical laptop, with an identical setup, and everything works just fine for his laptop.
I did nothing out of the ordinary last night when this happened - no settings were changed, etc. The only thing I did do that I don't do every day, was that I ran the disk cleanup manager, and it cleaned out a few temp files, but I thought that this was a harmless operation...

Acer :: Aspire 5590 - Wireless Stops Working And The Light Is Off And It Won't Go On When I Move The Switch
Okay so my first question is this: Right now my wireless light is on showing that it's wireless, but if I close my laptop, or if it goes to sleep, and then I go back onto my laptop the wireless stops working and the light is off and it won't go on when I move the switch. I have a Aspire 5590
My second question is: I've hooked up a second monitor to my laptop I checked the settings and it works like this, if I move my mouse to the right and keep going, my mouse appears on the second screen. How can I make it so that the start menu and everything goes from the first to the second screen that way I can close my laptop, cause if I close my laptop screen it disables the second screen also/
Acer :: Upgrading Wlan-module Failed
I tried to upgrade the wlan module in my Acer TravelMate 4233WLMi from the original Intel 3945abg mini-pci module to the Intel 4965abn mini-pci.
Windows Vista immediately recognised the new module, installed the drivers and noted the the new interface is now up and running and ready for use.
In fact it's not - the wlan-led on the front of the notebook stays dark - when I tried to switch it on via the front panel switch the notebook displays "no wlan module found".
The device manager in Vista still displays it as up and running.
I put in the original module again and the switch, led and wlan works again.
So my question is whether I received a faulty 802.11n module or whether the 4965abn is simply incompatible with the Acer 4233WLMi ...
Acer :: Upgrade 5920G With Creative X-FI Mini PCIe Module

There is a REAL X-Fi chip on board not those lower end ones used in usb and pcmcia solutions.

This could be simply accomplished by editing some configuration files. So notepad.exe is the "hacking tool" of choice
Make sure, you back up these files before editing them. Also, some files are write protected, so you need to change this before the modification. It is recommended to re-apply the write protected flag when you're done.

Acer :: New 8930 No Wifi (anymore)
I came home and turned it on, checked my emails... I went to the fridge took something to eat, came back and my internet was gone. No connection or whatsoever. I tried turing the wireless on and off but it doesn't help, I push the side button and it doesn't matter when I press it if it says wireless allowed or wireless off. I just detects nothing. I thought maybe it was the router so I reinstalled it but even that didn't work. My sisters laptop detects our network so no problem there...
Acer :: Upgrade Internal Wifi
I have Acer 5684WLMI laptop which comes with internal wifi card which is ABG now I want to upgrade it to 4965AGN.
Trouble I am having after installing the card is, it cannot see any access points/Wireless Routers whilst there are, after lot of troubleshooting I found out the button in front is disabled & it will not enable even though I have fiddling.
