Acer Aspire V13 :: Unable To Search For Wireless Router
Dec 4, 2014
Since getting my new v13 notebook. Problems with unable to search for wireless router . Wifi icons not out at time. Have to restart few times to be able to have the search for wireless device. When able to connect, notebook will hang upon surfing net. Notebook always hang and have to press off button to restart.
I'm using Windows7 on Dell vostro1500, I'm unable to connect to Internet through wireless modem router, let me know whether I need to Install any driver separately for the same. If yes Please provide me the link for for the drivers.
I just bought a Acer 4720z and I connected it to my wireless router the problem I am having is that the computer keeps disconnecting from internet every few mins and then reconnect. I called acer and they are useless. The computer has Vista on it and my wireless router is a actiontec from verizon.
This is my internet system: I got a VPN type of connection, i got LAN first, then a direct VPN. The provider hooked me up with those LAN settings (IP, mask, gateaway), so i HAVE to set em the local network settings before i connect, otherwise, my MAC adress gets blocked. After I have bought the laptop, I felt like makin' some Wi-Fi around; so I got MSI RG54GS2 now.
I don't know how to make all this work now, lol. I called my ISP company boss and asked him to disable the router's MAC adress' blocking, so I can free tuning my new router now.
Just gimme some advice which type of connection I should pick, where I should put my previous LAN settings n stuff like that.
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.
I hope this is not too off topic... I have a M1710 running Vista, am wondering what peeps are using in the way of cable wireless routers? I have a Belkin N1 with WPA2 running a 50Mb cable modem... I seem to have terrible wireless throughput perhaps max 300K but when I plug into the WAN port I get the full portion... about 47000k.
I am running in mixed mode, router has latest f/w and I have tried just running in N only with no success... Anyone here have any success?
I have tried our 54g wireless router here at work and it has a 20Mb connection and I get full bandwidth.
I've tried my USB modem, it's not supported by Leopard, and there are no up to date drivers that work. Apple have told me they don't support USB modems for this model (that's what they've told me anyway).
Just tried a Netopia ethernet router and although the Mac sees the connection, it still isn't connecting to the net.
My ISP is Tiscali and I'm in the UK. Any recommendations for a Modem/Wireless Router that will work with a MacBook Pro/Leopard set up, and Tiscali are gratefully received.
I didn't expect this to be difficult, but after four days and two modems I still can't get my MBP online.
My laptop constantly loses connection to my wireless router and I'm forced to use the windows troubleshooting tool to hook up again. This can happen over and over again multiple times over the course of an hour or so. I'm using an Xfinity wireless router and have several other devices hooked up to it wirelessly that do not drop connection. These include iPhones, iPod touch, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Mac notebook. And no, they are not all accessing the wireless at the same time. I've reinstalled/updated the drivers, adjusted my power saving settings, restored the system to its factory settings -- basically everything on the troubleshooting list.
I have an HP Pavilion m6 running Windows 7 Home Premium.
My workplace installed a router a few months ago. It's a Cisco E2000. My laptop will not recognize the wireless signal from the router. It recognizes about 10 other wireless signals from other locations outside the office. My phone also recognizes the router and can connect to it no problem. I've installed all the updates for Windows 7 and for the HP laptop. I've also installed the latest driver for the wifi card in the laptop.
I get a red X over the internet icon and my router will no longer recognize any networks. I called my ISP and the manufactuer of my Belkin router. So I went out and rought a brand new Net Gear router. Still not working. I called Net Gear and they think it's my wireless card?
Is there a way to determine for sure if its a hardware problem? Maybe I need to download a driver?
Is there a wireless switch on my laptop? Do I need to configure my new router? I'm hoping to use my Belkin router if it's just a driver problem so I can take back the new router and get my money back.
i just bought an acer aspire 5102wlmi without a HD for a friend. so i went and bought a HD and proceeded to install windows XP home service pack 2.
the problem is it constantly stays in a loop, i load and boot from the disc, it copies all the files, reboots, loads the files, says starting windows, and then just starts all over by going back to the setup screen. i've formatted the drive and made multiple attempts. had anyone else had this problem? if so what is the solution?
I had to buy the recovery disk for my Aspire V5, when I start I change the bios to UEFI with secure enabled, then I use the disk Recovery System, once that I´m in the Acer Console Management, and I Selected the restore full, a pop up came with the message "Please Change your bios to Legacy¨ so I click on the exit button, and I enter to the bios and select the legacy mode, then the acer console management starts and says that the systems recovery fails because this is only for UEFI mode. So I dont know what to do, I have another 4 disk for the recovery but none of this is a booteable disk. Also I tried with UEFI and boot secure disable and same result .
I have an ACER ASPIRE 5755 laptop with 4GB RAM and 500 GB Disk. Now the issue I am facing is, it doesn't boot up. It just sits at a screen for sometime and then even if we reboot it goes to the same screen which is much prior to loading Windows and I believe just after the POST. I checked in the BIOS that hard-drive was not getting detected. I unplugged replugged ..took it out, put it back in but nothing worked. Than I removed that hard-drive and replaced it with a working hard-drive of my fren's & eventually it booted up fine. Hence this isolates to be an issue with the hard drive. Now my question is that, "is there any upper limit on the size of the hard-drive (as the inboxed one was 500GB)". I am planning to take 1TB hard drive. So will that work In addition to this, is there any link provided by Acer which I can browse and check what all Hard-drives are supported / compatible / recommended by Acer. I have been a big fan of Acer Laptops from a long time and would not want to buy a new laptop just because of this simple hard drive issue.
Bought this router online a couple of weeks ago. Hooked it up and all was working great til tonight. For whatever reason, there is now no blue "wireless" light burning. All the other lights including the Internet, modem, router, wired, and Security light are working. On ocassion, the wireless light flashes red on the router. Tried a manual wireless connection on the affected computer, no go. It sees the network connection but is unable to connect. I tried the rebooting of the router and modem, no go.
I own a 3.5 years old Acer Aspire 5742G (Core i3 M380; NVIDIA540M). the heat sink or the collinig fan might have some issue as it usually gets overheated when playing games (even CS condition zero/1.6). I don't play games anymore, so its not a problem.
The problem is that I am unable to adjust the screen brightness from the keyboars shortcut (Fn+ Left/Right arrow key), neither from the control panel (Power Settings).
Although I do noticed something that, if I change my brightness settings (nothing happens) and I close the laptop lid (display screen) by folding it down and openeing it back after 3-4 seconds, the brightness is now changed.
I just bought a Aspire E5-571G-583R and I'm trying to get 5.1 sound from it. I've connected the laptop HDMI to my home theatre system which supports both Dolby Digital and DTS, not working. I've also tried to my LG LED-TV which supports Dolby Digital, that's also a no go. I've installed the latest Realtek drivers from your download pages (126.96.36.19950). The problem, as far as I can tell, is that it uses the Intel display sound driver instead of Realtek HD sound driver on the HDMI port. I have tried to change the driver on the HDMI device to Realtek but then I got the win 8.1 version of the BoD.
So I guess I've two questions:
1. Is it possible to force the Realtek driver on the HDMI in order to get 5.1 sound? 2. If not, how do I get 5.1 sound from the laptop?
Screen automatically dims as I go in little dark areas and gets too bright when it has so much light around it. I am trying Fn+ arrow keys but they make very less difference. Is there any way to control this?
I am using Windows 8.1 and display drivers are Intel HD Graphics Family version 10.18.10.3316.
Acer Aspire V5 seems to be "stuck" on the lock screen before you go to the login screen. We are unable to swipe up to get to the next screen. I tried clicking on FN-7 to see if maybe the screen was locked but it didn't work. I powered the computer off 10 sec and unplugged .. still nothing..
My Aspire E15's brightness is locked at maximum capacity. I can't change it in power options or with the Fn key. It is the same whether connected to the AC adapter or not. While using the Fn key and pressing Fn+Left Key or Fn+Right Key, the on-screen brightness indicator alternates between two levels but the brightness of the screen doesn't change.
I have an Aspire 5733Z laptop and I love it dearly. I just recently lost the capability to adjust the volume using the keyboard shortcut of Fn key with up or down arrow keys. I have uninstalled and installed the Realtek HD driver.
I just received a new Studio 15 (Vista Premium) with the Dell 1510 Wireless card and I'm unable to connect to my network using a Belkin N1 router. First let me say I'm limited in my knowledge of wireless networking but I did try troubleshooting a little without any success (Wi-Fi is turned on). When I click on "Connect To" it does pickup my network plus several others with great signal strength so the card is seeing networks but when I put my Key in it keeps coming up can't connect to my network.
Since the Studio 15 came with McAfee with it's firewall enabled I disabled it but still no connection. I even tried Safe Mode With Networking but still no success. I finally called Dell and he did some troubleshooting like having me go to Network Adapters and then to the Dell Wireless Card and Advance.
Under "Property" it was set to 802.11h+d and under "Value" it was set to "Loose 11h" but he had me change it to "Band Preference" and "Prefer 802.11g/b". It didn't make a difference but I did notice it had reverted back to the first settings when I back to that screen.
The tech gave up and transferred me higher up so the new tech says he needs to configure some settings on my Studio 15 and my Belkin Router in order for it to work but it would cost me $69.
I'm not paying Dell another $69 so can someone help me? I should state I have a Dell 1505 with their standard wireless card (not N1) and it connects with no problem.
