Acer Aspire M3970 LAN and Wireless Problems

Q: Acer Aspire M3970 LAN and Wireless Problems

Hey Guys,

Had my desktop PC (Acer Aspire M3970) for about 11 months now, 2 days ago the LAN and wireless network adapters have stopped working. When i troubleshoot the problem it says the network adapters are having problems with their drivers, so I updated them from the Acer website. Still they don't work, I have system restored, Nothing! I went delved further into my adapters settings and it said "windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol to the network adapters" for both of them.

Additional Info:
Running windows home premium 64bit,
BT home hub which other computers can connect to,
Can connect to a network with wireless but says I have "Limited Connectivity"
Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller,
Ralink 802.11n Wireless LAN card,
-both network adapters have never had any problems before.

Could someone please help, i'm losing my mind as nothing i've tried has worked!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

So, I've recently purchased this new desktop computer, and, let it be no secret that I am no techy. My internet is slow, speedtest shows 1.6MB download speed, however that is proven to be a lie, as my downloading speed is being overhauled by a crippled snail.

Any help, advice, or so forth would be much appreciated. All I know is that I disabled IPv6, did the command prompt line that was suggested (Yes, my speedtest result got better, other than that, nothing happened)

I'm using the wireless card that is inside the case; 802.11n Wirelss LAN Card.
All drivers are up to date.

Disabled MacAffee firewall and installed a different one (AvG) nothing changed.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Please try the following:

Disable McAfee completely, click on Start and type msconfig, in Services Tab uncheck or disable any McAfee Services, test your connection after.

Also, see if it makes any difference if you are logged on in Safe Mode in Networking. Restart your computer, tap F8 and select this option.

An update will be appreciated.

So I bought an Acer Aspire M3970 Desktop with windows 7 about 5 years ago, and recently I've decided I wanted to upgrade the CPU. It came with an Intel Core i5-2320 processor, and I want to upgrade to a Intel Core i7-3770 Processor. When I put the new CPU in and attempted to start up my PC, I got 4 beeps and the computer wouldn't turn on. I did some research and decided to try updating my BIOS and hope that would fix my problem. My current BIOS version is: American Megatrends Inc. P02-A0, and I'm pretty sure the one I want to be upgrading to is the P03-A3 (Found here: https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/support-product/3673?b=1) the readme file in the P03-A3 folder tells me I'm supposed to run the .bat file included in the folder, but I get this error: Given ROM file does not match existing BIOS size Now I did some more research and I actually found someone who had a very similar problem to me: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/328340-30-need-flashing-bios but the answers in that thread haven't really helped me figure out my problem. I also run into an issue where if I try to type any comands into the .exe file, it just tells me "hit any key to continue" and eventually closes. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I have this issue with my laptop. It can't connect to my wifi unless I am within close proximity. Kinda bothers me because it only limits me to use my laptop only in my room. Even though the signal strength is strong, I am still unable to connect to the wifi in other rooms such as the living room. Does anyone know a way to fix this? Thanks.

It is helpful to let the community know the following:What specific computer do you have?What operating system is on the computer?
 
In this instance, what version of the wireless driver is installed?
Have you attempted to update the driver?

hi there, i hope someone can help me out!

I've got an acer aspire 3690 running vista home basic (I know, I know, Vista is awful and should be discarded at once ...) and i'm having problems with the wireless card.

I've reinstalled the drivers for the broadcom wireless devices and in the device manager, it shows the card as installed and working correctly.

The problem i am having is that when i try to switch the wireless capablity on via the switch on the front of the laptop, a little green message pops up saying "No Wireless Device" so the card doesn't seem to be linked to the switch. I have reinstalled the acer launch manager which controls the all the buttons/toggles on the laptop but still to no avail.

Is there anything obvious I have missed?

Thanks in advance guys

Hello! I recently bought a new Acer Aspire E5 571G laptop and I've had problems with wireless network from the beginning.It randomly loses connection and sometimes even shows that I'm connected with a good signal but cannot get Internet access.I have the same problem in different networks, so it can't be caused by a router. Moreover, other computers that are connected to same network don't have the problem.1) I have the newest drivers and I've tried reinstalling them.2) The priority of my current wireless network is set to the highest.3) Power options are changed to Maximum Performance.About a week ago troubleshooting said that "Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings", so I unchecked every box under LAN settings.Nothing has worked. OS: win8network adapter driver: broadcom 6.30.223.234

carmentaimre,
 
Sorry you 're having problems with the system, let's see if we can get it up and running for you. I realize that you said it has wireless problems connecting to any network, but the first troubleshooting step I would suggest would be to restart your router. I didn't see that listed in your steps and would like to troubleshoot it at the home location where it is most likely used the most.

I am trying to get my Ace Aspire M3970 tower upgraded. I have installed a Verbatim 120GB SSD drive that I hope to install Windows 7 on, so that I can then upograde to Windows 8... I would prefer to have the system on the SSD, and leave the HDD for data.

In using the ACER recover disks that I had created, I can get it to start loading on the SSD, but it took a long time for installing services, then seemed to hang for a very long time on installing drivers, until I gave up and let it slide. If I press F12 dusring boot, I can partially boot from the SDD, but it hangs at the windows logo fading in and out for many minutes before I give up.

The system is stock except for the SSD, and I have removed the wireless card. It is an i3 second gen 3.3ghz with 6GB RAM.

The recovery disks work on the HDD, because I reloaded the HDD with them the other day.

I was unable to boot from the SSD at all early on, (I have tried loading a couple of times) until I flagged the partition as active in Disk Manager on my working Windows 7 HDD. I had tried to load Win 8 with my $14.95 upgrade on the SSD and it failed before trying to load Windows 7 on the SSD.

I seem to be able to read from and write to the drive just fine.

The BIUOS seems to only recognize the HDD for booting when I go into BIOS settings, but it does give me the option of selecting the SSD if I press F12, and that is hgow I am getting to the point I am now.

Any ideas on what I should do?

Thanks for any help!

A:Issues Loading Win 7 on SSD on Acer M3970

1. I think you would do better with a proper installation disc. You can get the Win7 .iso from here, burn it to CD and activate it with the product key on the COA sticker.

2. Make sure you disconnect the HDD when installing on the SSD. Else you run the risk that your bootmgr ends up on the HDD.

3. It may be useful to clean the SSD before installing. Here is how: http://howto.cnet.com/8301-11310_39-...-an-ssd-drive/

If the lights off most likely the wifi card is bad. Check the device manager to make sure it's installed properly. If it is, its likely dead. However if it's shown as "error with this device" might need to simply reinstall the drivers.

I have an Acer Aspire 5715 running Vista..the wireless was acting up so I purchased a new Atheros wireless adapter. It runs fine for a while then loses signal then pops back up. I have reformatted the laptop, checked all the appropriate areas (so that it does not turn off to save power) downloaded the latest drivers,and reset my router to factory settings. We are using wpa2, and I heard that may be an issue, or that I have to run with no security at all. Besides this, is there another option?

Hi, I received my new netbook today, an Acer Aspire One, AOA150.

It came installed with a version of Linux, but I need a version of Windows so I installed Vista Business. I have had two problems since - one was with the graphics card which was solved with a driver update. The other has been a lot more trickey to solve!

I cannot connect to my router wirelessly, but I can with an ethernet cable. My router is Netgear WGR614v9. Other computers can connect both wirelessly and via cable to the router. I have tried many different drivers for the car (including from the Acer help site) but none have worked. I have copied the result from ipconfig/all if that clears anything up.

Cheers for your help,
Chris

P.S. There is a switch on the front of the netbook which controls the wireless radio, I have tried pushing this (it doesn't stay in an on or off position but slides back to the left). Also I had it connected wirelessly in Linux earlier before I installed Vista.

Hi there,

I have the same problem with an Acer Aspire 3690. I changed the Vista to XP, I added all the drivers, and everything seems working properly, but I can't use the bradcom BCM94311mcg wireless adapter because it can't switch the radio on. If I switch the wireless button I get the same message wrritten above.

to artie86: If you know more since then, please let us know!

Hi there,
I'm not very computer savvy but I'm trying to work out an issue I have with my Aspire One netbook. When I try to connect to our wireless in our house (via Netgear) my Acer always tells me the signal strength is excellent and I'm connected. However, when I double click on Internet Explorer, it never connects to the internet. This only happens in my home with my Netgear...when I connect to other wireless routers, I dont seem to have this problems...please help!!

What "something" did you do ?

Have you turned on the wireless button ? Is there a light on indicating the wireless is turned on (the radio icon) ?

How many networks do you usually see available ? Is it possible that there really aren't any networks broadcasting in your area ? Do you see networks available from another computer ?

A:hi i have acer aspire 4520 wireless button not wor...

Most likeley, your wirless card needs to be replaced.  Sometimes you can get lucky by removing the wirless card, restarting the computer, then shutting down the computer and physically reinstalling the card again.  In most cases, when you cannot control a wireless card's ability to turn on an off, it usually means the wifi card is a dud. In your case, removing/replacing the card on the 4520 is pretty easy compared to most machines.  Watch this youtube video from the :18 second mark through the first 30 seconds.  That's all the time it took for the person disassembling the laptop to remove the card.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yucUQbEiNXg Also note, it looks like in most cases, the 4520 machine came with a full size b/g mini pci wifi card.  I believe the s/n is T60H976.  I would recommend throwing in just about any Atheros half size mini pci wireless card with wireless N capabilities (huge performance increase for a minimal amount of cost, assuming your router supports wireless N).  Just keep in mind if you throw in a half size card, you will also need to get a half size bracket extension so that the half size card can fit the full size slot on your computer.  It can all easily be done with about $10-$20 in parts on ebay, and will give your computer much better wireless performance.  I recommend going with another Atheros card because sometimes manufacturues will not whitelist or recognize other manufacturer card...

As the topic says, I have an Acer Aspire 5100 that I recently bought.It has a built in wireless card but I cannot get it to connect tothe d-link DI-614+ router at my friends house.It works when I connect it manually with a Ethernet Cable but thats aboutall. I have set up a network and tried that rout by letting the laptop intothe network, but it still does not want to connect.I am also running Vista so I am not sure if that is why it wont connect.The network is there, I can see it, I just cant get on.If anyone could help, that would be great.

Greetings. I have tried to fix this problem like 1 year ago, but I can't find a solve. So I am here for asking the help of you guys.
The problem is like I'm using a wireless connection and it's really fast. Using the laptop called Acer Aspire 7740G. The internet connection of it works really well, but it doesn't load right away. Example. Windows Task Manager>Networking>Network Utilization

Everytime the % always popping up and goes down to 0 %. I realized that when it's popping, then internet works well, then when it goes down to 0 %, then it doesn't work anymore... that's the problem I am trying to solve. It's like when I am browsing website, then it needs to load little bit, take a lot of secs, then the website is done, mine desktop just load right away and the website is done. I have tried to update wireless drivers from Acer site, but still the same problem, wish if you guys knows the problem. I'm really glad, if this can be fixed. Hope you understand what I'm trying to say.

I use Windows 7.
My networks adapters are:
Atheros AR5B93 Wireless Network Adapter
Broadcom NetLink (TM) Gigabit Ethernet
Microsoft Virtual WiFi Minipoer Adapter

Here the picture what I meant:

And the second picture, when it's popping up:

Hope you can help me to fix this. I really appreciate it. Sorry for my bad English.

Hi,

I have a brand new Aspire one with Windows XP. I am trying to connect to an existing home wireless network. The router is a Belkin and the other lap top that is connected is a Toshiba, it works fine as wireless.

The Aspire can detect the wireless home network...I have added the Aspire to the network with a USB drive, but when I try to connect it reads " unable to find certificates to log you on to network" and continually reads "validating identity".

Any ideas?

Dave
 

A:Solved: Acer - Aspire One and wireless networking

I too am having a problem. I did not add the notebook to my existing hp desktop which is running wirelessly with linksys through a usb drive. Acer told me that it should work and it is a network problem, but it would make sense to add the computer with a usb flash to my network first. Currently there is no ip address either on the acer and it states the media and wireless adapters are disconnected. It finds the linksys but it shows it is unsecured and cannot hook up to it. Any ideas?

As the subject suggests, my wireless adapter has stopped working, it worked fine yesterday, and I haven't used it since.The diagnostic says there might be a problem with the driver for the WiFi adapter. Trying these repairs as administrator gives the same message.I have downloaded the WiFi driver through a different pc and after installation nothing has changed.
