Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop ?

Acer Aspire not picking up wireless network signal

\015 I have an Acer Aspire 5612 which runs Windows Vista home addition. \015\012\015\012The laptop does not pick up my netgear wireless router. \015\012\015\012If I walk around the room with my acer or wave it in the air while prerssing the refresh button in network connections, it picks up the router and then I am able to log onto it. Although this is great exercise I'm getting a little tired of having to do this everytime I want to log onto the network. I have already installed the latest version of network card drivers with no difference to the problem... can you help?\015

Answers :

The way you have expressed what you can do to obtain a connection implies that the problem may be affected by physical disturbances to the laptop. Do your oveservations agree with this possiblilty, or does connectivity seem more relevant to the physical location? I wonder if there might be a loose connection where the antenna leads attach to the wireless radio, or if the antenna elements inside the laptop are being shorted by a conductive piece of debris. Try checking the antenna connectors. Another possibility is that the antenna leads have been damaged by getting pinched where it passes through the hinge for the lid/screen.
The problem is that your wireless phones conflict with your wireless interenet.  If possible move your phone to another room away from the wireless.  Another item that will help is to move your antennas to this kind of formation:   I __\015\012
