This Acer Aspire One laptop has win Xp home edition with sp3service pack installed ! 1gb ram. This is a brand new laptop from Target. I can't get it to connect to wifi !

When I do get it to connect it says connected but when I open Firefox or IE it doesn't connect to internet !

I think its just the wifi settings but cant figure this out !

i'm getting this message after messing with settings :

"There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network"

Re: Acer Aspire One not connecting to WIFI

Sounds like a router issue. You may need to go into the router admin and manually assign the IP to each computer on your network, or at least manually assign different IP's to the laptop and whichever other one is using the same IP.


I'm trying to think, but nothing happens

Re: Acer Aspire One not connecting to WIFI

Ahhh ok, so then you don't have access to the router admin. Try this: Click the Start button, then Run, and type in "CMD" and click OK.

In the command window type "ipconfig /release" and then "ipconfig /renew" That flushes your IP address and gets a new one. If you're still having problems you can aslo try ipconfig /flushdns Reboot the computer after doing that and see if you can connect. No quotes around any of those commands when ya type them by the way.

Re: Acer Aspire One not connecting to WIFI

I figured it out !!!

http://gd.panam.acer.com/home/

downloaded Driver for wireless modem and uninstalled it from Xp device driver

and ran setup and restarted it then it connected right away so basically it had the wrong driver from the factory !

How did you go to That website to download the startup file and everything? I can't get to the internet at all on the aspire one.

If you have access to any other computer with internet access you can grab it that way, and then transfer it over to the Acer. Library? Friends? Work computer?

Hi Pinkii, welcome to GD Smile

Give this a shot and see if it solves your issue:

  • Go to Start | Run & type "CMD", click the ok button or press Enter
  • In the black window that opens up, type the following commands (no quotes for any of them):
  • "netsh int ip reset reset.txt" - then hit enter, assuming you entered it right it'll appear to have done nothing, Then type the following command into the window:
  • "netsh winsock reset catalog" - hit enter. You should be asked to reboot afterward

This "unlocks" your NIC and after rebooting, an new IP address should have been assigned. If not, try the release/renew method mentioned in previous posts again.



Shhh.. dont tell anyone, but we also have a private forum area with the really good stuff, see?
