Acer :: Aspire One Wireless (new WiFi Module)

Oct 18, 2008

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

May 6, 2009

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 :: Will Aspire One Mini Xp Have Wifi

Nov 26, 2008

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

Apr 11, 2009

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

May 11, 2009

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 V3-771g WiFi Don't Work

Jan 4, 2015

my problem is that WiFi literally don't work - i can't connect to any network.I'm using Windows 8 Pro.It's a i5 + geforce gt 630M version.When i'm installing an Atheros Drivers, it says that device is disconnected and drivers cannot be installed.

Wi-Fi is totally turned off - I mean the led isn't lightning, blinking or nothing - it's dead.

I can't use Fn + F3, it don't work at all.

I've installed LaunchManager, Fast Lane, Touch Pad and Dritek Rf button.

Now, in Fn + F3 i can turn Airplane mode, nor Wi-Fi.Is there any solution to turn this on? It stopped to work from day to a day - yesterday it works, now it isn't.

Done some formats, it don't even work on Windows 7 with Acer drivers. Maybe card is dead?

Acer :: Aspire E15 Limited Internet Connectivity / WiFi

Mar 9, 2015

Just bought an Acer Aspire E15 and have been setting it up today and managed to get connected to the internet through the wi-fi however I have noticed that the wifi keeps dropping and leaves me with nothing and then I have to manually go in and select the router again. This is happening all the time, I am on the internet for no longer than 2 mins before I get the unable to access the network. There is no problem with the network it just seems to be my new laptop. I looked this up and was told to change the power management settings and did so and am still have the same problem. I also updated the driver and again am still having the problem. Also tried ipconfig /flushdns and again the problem persists!

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.

Acer Aspire Switch 10 :: WiFi Randomly Dropping Out

Mar 2, 2015

I have problem a with my Switch 10. The internet connection drops frequently. It is followed by the signal strength icon showing 'Limited'. I then turn off WI-FI and turn back on and it does not recognize any networks at all. I then go into network settings, run the troubleshooter and it does its stuff, re-setting the network adapter, and then informs me that it could not find an issue. After resetting the adapter it works fine again.I have tried uninstalling and installing latest drivers but the problem persists. The problem lies within the adapter itself or the driver.

My adapter shows as being REALTEK and i read on here of similar problems with the Broadcom adapter, which makes me think that the driver is causing the problem. Someone suggested that the Bluetooth was causing a conflict, so I removed bluetooth and it made no difference. (I have re-installed bluetooth. All drivers are latest ones.My switch is not a month old yet and this happens a couple of times a day. and am close to returning the product. I like it, but cannot put up with such an important issue as the internet randomly dropping.

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.
