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 6530 And XP
i want to put Windows XP onto my Acer Aspire 6530. is this possible? someone told me i might be able to, but it might have problems with drivers. i'm not very computer savvy, but i did some digging and it looks like i may be able to download any needed drivers. does anyone have info on this and/or know which drivers i need?
i'm running Linux Mint 8 right now at my friend's suggestion, but i don't really like it.
Acer :: 6530 Dead After Bad Bios Update
how to flash the bios of a Acer Aspire 6530 without being in windows.
I download the bios update and opened to see how it worked and then accidently shut the zip file that it was in and it crashed, computer froze and now it wont work!
It load the boot screen and even windows but crashes after mup.sys and brings up an error screen about problems with computer and shuts down. I have tried reinstalling windows but when i get to the hard drive section the hard drive is not there although its there in the boot screen.
I have tried re installing the bios with the phoenix recovery tool but that didnt work.
Im guessing i need the Insydeflash tool and some special file name for the bios.

when i started to connect my wireless network 9 feet away(it has full connection) it said could't connect to network.

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) 184.108.40.206 4.8 MB 2009/10/21
Wireless LAN Intel Wireless LAN Driver (CondorPeak) 220.127.116.11 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 :: 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 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 :: 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 18.104.22.168), 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/
Apple :: Wireless Mouse - Occasionally Loses Its Wireless Connection To The Computer
I think something similar has been posted here before. In essence, I find that when I use my VX Revolution (or is it MX? Whichever one is the mobile version), the mouse occasionally loses its wireless connection to the computer, and so I have to click multiple times to get it to register.
This is annoying enough for me to consider getting a wired mouse, but I want to know if I get something like an MX518 if I'm still going to run into the disconnect/lag issue.
In other words, is it a wireless issue or a Logitech/PC/Mac conflict issue? I experienced both with and without the Logitech software installed. The software is currently installed.
Sony :: Stopping Wireless Static In SZ Series (after Upgraded Wireless)
if you have an older SZ and want to add a 3rd wire, this will show you how and where to put it.
So a while back I upgraded the the 4965AGN in my SZ750N to an Intel 5200, since that day, B&G has been noisy. I managed to arrange the antenna connections in such a way as to minimize it to within tolerable limits. I also talked to some experts and they said it wasn't going to hurt anything if there was a bit of static so I left it.
I have known for a while that is was the white antenna lead that was causing the static. Unfortunately disconnecting it caused a drop in signal. While working on my Windows 7 guide I had a problem and had to open the laptop. While doing so I noticed the white lead and the antenna it attached to. I hadn't ever really noticed where it sat before. Sony couldn't have hardly chosen a worse place for it.
Sony decided the best place for it, and I assume this is because they merely upgraded the old 2 wire wireless to 3 by adding this, is almost under the power button. Right next to... a speaker. The lead runs along a Speaker wire and puts the antenna right next to it. See pics 1 & 2................
HP/Compaq :: DV5-1155ee- Wireless Led Suddenly Orange Although Wireless Is Enabled
Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 (64-Bit) (problem is also there with Windows 7)
I sometimes try to connect to a network, then the wireless led suddenly orange although Wireless is Enabled. My friend who has an XP system can connect to that network in the cafe just fine so does everybody else, but on my system, it says connecting, then the icon turns orange as if there was no wirelesss card installed.
I am using the Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN v22.214.171.124 Driver which was installed through Windows Update along with HP Wireless Assistant v126.96.36.199
Now I have an orange icon for wireless, although wireless is enabled in both device manager and through the touch key.
the icon will turn blue if I restart and wireless access will be restored, but I will lose it again if I try to connect to a wireless network.
Acer :: Acer Extensa 4630Z - Wireless Driver
I just installed XP Pro on my Acer Extensa 4630Z and I installed all the drivers successfully but the wireless driver. I tried all the drivers from acer's support site [url] none of them work. I also tried what worked for Davoucci with same laptop but this driver also doesn't work for me
Acer :: No Wireless On 7730Z With XP
I've downgraded plenty of units, and installed XP literally hundreds of times. I got a Aspire 7730Z, with Vista Premium SP1 and b/c of a backward compatibility issue, figured I'd put XP on it. Reformatted with XP Home SP2, after changing bios to deal with IDE, all went ok. Started with Intel chipset drivers, went to video, nic, etc, all the way through, Device Manager showed no problems or conflicts.
But, the wireless will not connect - its as if theres a switch turning off the wireless. To troubleshoot, I swapped out the wireless with another similar chipset, then tried an Intel 3945. Same thing - wireless will not enable.
So something is preventing the wlan from working. I then installed DotNet and the Acer stuff. Acer eNet showed that I could enable the wlan, but it never sees any wireless networks. Again, as if a switch is turned off, but there is no physical switch here.
Tried the bios update but it changed nothing. Got another laptop in, and same thing.
I had ghosted the HDD before starting, so I went "back" to Vista and wireless is working again.
Acer :: , Wireless & Bluetooth
I have two questions my first one is my wireless internet, I have a switch that has a yellow light showing that it's connected wirelessly, before I formatted my computer I could move the switch and it would say wireless off or on. What do I need to download or do to fix this?
My second question is that I have bluetooth my bluetooth switch is beside my wireless, before it would glow blue, but now it does nothing and when I hit the switch bluetooth doesn't come on or off, and I installed the bluetooth driver for my laptop but it says bluetooth device not found when I hover over the icon in the right corner of my task bar.
Acer :: Timeline 4810T Wireless
I have a 4810T (SU3500) and the wireless connection is giving me some issues. After a suspend or restart the wireless connection does not reconnect properly. Sometimes the icon says I'm connected but there is no data transfer. I have to disconnect/reconnect or turn off/turn on the wireless via the touch sensitive button. Once I do that the wireless connection is rock solid.
I'm using the newest Intel drivers and Bios version 1.23
Acer :: 1810TZ Wireless Drivers
I am installing Vista 32 for a friend on his Aspire 1810TZ. A very new model I believe.
As yet I havn't been able to sourse the correct Wifi drivers. The drivers from the Acer site (intel 5100 and Atheros) Fail. The Atheros drivers tell me that the card isnt present whilst the intel drivers tell me that they may not be compatible then after installing, the device is reported as working properly but the front switch fails to turn the wireless on and, no networks are found in range. The intel diagnostic software reports the wireless as being switched off and sometimes as being on but with no networks to scan.
Any ideas as to what wireless device is present in this model or whether I should be looking at the wireless switch itself as a source of the problem?
Acer :: 3050 Wireless Drivers

But, i cannot get the wireless to work, even after instaling the drivers. it will work with a wireless dongle ok and go online.
Acer :: Wireless Bass Ackwards
I recently bought an Acer Extensa 4620Z on Black Friday for real cheap! I really like this computer and wanted to put XP on it so I could like it even more. Turns out, the computer rejects anything but Vista . I know that some people were sort of able to get XP on this computer, but I have tried just about everything short of a network installation (not that that's much different from an actual CD). After a few days of it just sitting there with nothing on it, I got around to using the recovery DVDs/CD that I had to ORDER from Acer. They installed just about everything as it came when i first turned it on.
The reason for the purchase of the recovery discs was not only to get it back to the "original" (not quite) state, but to try to fix this annoying little wireless problem that has arisen since i first formatted it. What's happening is the card comes on when the computer is booted as well as when Windows is installing. There is a switch that turns on a light that lets you know when it's on and to see network activity. The problem here is that it has now REVERSED. When the computer used to boot, the light would come on and i'd have to turn the wireless off since it was slightly annoying, and the light would go out. NOW, when the computer boots, the light is out, but the wireless is on. And when i turn it "ON" the light comes on and the wireless is disabled! WTF is going on?
Acer :: 4720z Wireless Router
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.
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 :: TM240 Bypass Wireless Button
Is it at all possible to override or bypass the manual wifi button on the top of an Acer Travelmate 240 laptop?
I have an MSI 6833 mini pci wireless card fitted into my laptop which is recognised by windows and showing as working OK.
The problem is that I can't turn the antenna on for the card.
It appears that the wireless button across the top of the keyboard does not recognise the card.
The wifi button flashes on briefly at boot up, but then remains permanently off.
I have looked everywhere for a solution to this but had no joy...including Acer support who were totally useless.
I am running Vista SP1, everything else works great with no problems.
Using a pcmcia wireless card, I can connect without any problems, but it would be easier to use an internal card.
Acer :: TravelMate 2420 - Wireless Drivers?
I have a Acer TravelMate 2420 that my sister gave me last year. I formatted the HD and wiped out the partition section on the HD. I found all the drivers that I needed except my wireless doesnt work. I have downloaded every different wireless driver from the acer site and nothing works. OH, my sister lost the Recovery Disc for this computer as well. When i go to my device manager, there is yellow "?" beside the following"
------------- Network Controller?
------------- PCI Modem?
Acer :: Travelmate 4400 Wireless Not Working
The front light that controls the wireless no longer lights up when I push it. Win XP finds the wireless card and the drivers are installed properly, but I can't find any of the wireless networks that are in range. (Another Acer laptop and an HP one right next to mine finds the 3 that are in the area.)
Is the wireless card broken? Is there a setting that I need to change? Once it stopped working I formatted it, hoping it was a windows problem... still no dice.
If the card is likely broken, whats my next step? My warranty is done, is it possible to replace it? Where should I buy it, Acer or somewhere else?
Acer :: AS6920-6438 No Wireless Internet
i dont get is that this is what it says for networking
Dial-up Modem: Yes
It says no for wireless. So does it mean that this laptop cannot hook up to a wireless network and must be plugged directly into with an ethernet cable from my router?
Dell :: Wireless Mice, BT Or USB Wireless
I have a $70 i need to spend at dell and am looking for some wireless mice.
I have a 9300 with bluetooth and my wife has a m1330 with it as well. I would like a mouse for while i am traveling and can just keep in my bag as i have a nice gaming mouse at home.
First question, if i got 2 of the same mice, would there be a conflict or does each have some type of ID.
The two mice i am looking at are th following ones. Any first hand reviews?
Acer :: Upgrade Wireless On Gemstone AS8920-6048
I am quite tempted to buy the AS8920-6048. This model is available in the USA now and comes with 802.11a/b/g wlan. Due to my need to stream HDTV I'd like to have 802.11n. The AS8920-6671 comes with it and is almost double the price. So the question is can I get the AS8920-6048, replace the a/b/g mini-pcie card by the 4695AGN and be done with it? The latter has 3 antenna leads, while the former only 2 antenna leads. It boils down to whether acer uses the same anteannae setups for all the 8920s and just varies the card, or do they actually put in extra antenna in the as8920-6671?
Acer :: TravelMate Timeline TM8471-6306 Wireless
I just purchased a Acer TravelMate Timeline TM8471-6306. This thing is having wireless issues.
The first thing I did was format the machine and installed Ubuntu. Everything went well until I attempted to connect the machine to my wireless access point. It would not connect. I know I was putting in the right WPA key. I thought it was a Ubuntu issue.
I took the laptop into my office where my wireless is located. The laptop connected to the access point and I was on the internet. I went to the other side of the room, wireless dropped. I figured it was a Ubuntu issue so I reinstalled Windows 7. Same issue. The wireless signal dropped when I am more than 5ft from the access point.
I called Acer support which is terrible beyond belief. They were telling me to call my ISP and my router manufacturer for support. I just hung up on them.
I believe this is a hardware issue because I have 3 other laptops in the house and they all work perfectly from the same access point all other the house. Only the acer has issues.
The bios is 1.27 and the 1.34 did not mention it addressed any other the wireless issues I am experiencing.
Acer :: No Wireless Adapter Recognized 4420-5963
I have been able to install most all of the missing drivers after my new OS install.......
The only problem I'm having is the wireless adapter is not recognized in device manager. There is a "network controller" that has no driver. I have installed the broadcom driver from acer site, but it won't work.
When I press the wireless button, it will toggle between wlan enabled, and wlan disabled, but I can't figure it out
Acer :: Extensa 4420 Wireless And Wired Internet
i got an Extensa 4420, and after hearing everyone say vista is out, I installed XP.
Im new to PC's [been a mac user for years] and this is confusing me.
The laptop has 2 partitions - C: and D:
Vista is on C: so i installed xp on D:
It appears that i can now only access XP and cannot ever boot into vista off C: is that true?
Also, when running XP i have no internet via the ethernet cable nor the wireless card that comes with this laptop. Can someone explain what drivers i need to install to make those work?
I got the Extensa_4200 driver folder off the website, but i am clueless as to which need to be installed - as im new to PC.
Any advice is much appreciated.
I have successfully figured out the audio and video drivers but now i need the internet and wireless to work.
Acer :: Extensa 4620z Broadcom Wireless Not Working
broadcom 802.11g network adapter is not working on extensa 4620z.
i just installed win xp pro on acer extensa 4620z which came pre-installed with linpus linux.
all is well except that the broadcom wireless g adapter is not working. in device manager, it says "Windows cannot load drivers for this hardware. the driver may be corrupted or missing.(code 39).
i tried downloading the driver from acer europe site and installed again but it still has the same problem. the driver on the cd which came with the laptop and the one which i downloaded from acer site is the same.
are there any other drivers or any other program which needs to be installed for this?
Acer :: Extensa 5420-5038 Wireless Dont Turn On
I bought an Acer Extensa 5420-5038 today, it cames with Vista Home 32 bits english version. As I am a brazilian, i formated it and instaled Vista Ultimate 64 bits Portugues version. The problem is, after the instalation, the wireless dont work anymore.
The light that usually flickes over it doesl not turn on, and it appears as an unknown network device on my hardware manager.
I've tried Atheros and Broadcom drivers from acer site but they didnt work and it told me the driver won't be installed because the appropriate card isn't installed....
In other words, it's telling me I dn't have an Atheros/Broadcom wireless card, but with the original instalatio of Vista it WAS working perfectly.
Acer :: 7720zg - Integrated Wireless Adapter Starts At The Boot
1. My integrated wireless adapter starts at the boot. How do I make it not to?
2. The same with the bluetooth.
3. I have some media buttons under my numpad stop, back, play/pause and forward. They don't work. Does anybody know how to make them work?
4. How can I remap the fn key shortcuts? I saw some stuff in registry but I don't understand how the codes work F5FD and stuff.
Acer :: 1410 & Intel 5100 Wireless Weak Connection
I'm really trying to like my new Acer 1410. Everything was working great until I tried to connect thru the wifi. Turned out the connection was really weak. This is in my house where all my other laptops have had no problem connecting.
So I try for a couple of hours trying every setting possible on my router and on my laptop settings. Finally, I open up the bottom of my laptop and find out the black wire that goes to the Intel Wireless card isn't even connected! In fact the metal connector itself is missing entirely
So me not knowing much about electronics, I cut off a 2 inch wire (with connector) from my old laptop's wireless card and taped it to the new laptop's open black wire. Plug it in and now the signal is better, but it still sucks. Any advice anyone? I really would rather fix it myself if I can. Would it work better if I solder the two wires together? Or is the Intel 5100 a POS and nothing is going to help it?
