laptop wireless problem

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a Acer Aspire 7741Z-5731 and had the same problem with another Acer Aspire (different model) for the first few days no problem using my wireless internet on the laptop. Now my laptop will say no wireless routers to connect to and if it does show them it says their was an error connecting. i have other laptops using the wifi without problem


My router is a netgear wgr614v9 and my wireless network adapter is a atheros ar5b93 and the driver is updated

if you still have warrenty on laptop take it back to shop, sounds faulty and it soo much better if they fix it, im obvoisly assuming you have installed the latest drivers and made sure the wireless adapter is turned on, (some have switches on case which knocks it off)

i had a laptop of the same series i sent back for other reasons not due to network problems. it worked for awhile and then quit as well, i downloaded some drive updater program and it got it to work. i just cant seem to find that program and get it to work.

yeah thats fine, im just saying when they gave you it, it would still have a warrenty so take it back and get them to either fix it for you or to give you a replacement its not fair to give you a faultly laptop twice

Make sure that you have enough IP addresses available for allocating on the DHCP server of your router. For example on a linksys router you can tell the DHCP server to allow only 5 or 10 or 50 connections to the router. If you have too many laptops/computers connecting to the router then it won't let your laptop connect.

Other than that, if the SSID is not being broadcasted I would try to enable broadcasting it to see if it works.

Also, why don't you try the adapter on the laptop that is able to connect to see if it's in fact working and take it from there.
