I have an Acer laptop and am having trouble connecting to a wireless router. It shows up in the list of avalible networks, but when i try to connect to it a window pops up and says that it's outta range. It will connect to other networks that are in range, they just aren't strong enuff to run. I'm not very computer literate, but I do know a little bit. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.

What version of windows?

Do you use the software that came with the wireless card or Windows? Try using the other and see if you get the same result.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

This may not work but if you plug your laptop into the wireless router with the ethernet cable (probably yellow). Then give it about 1 minute if you have just plugged it in and then go to the command prompt (start>run> type cmd ) type ipconfig into the command prompt now look for 'default gateway'. And then type whatever number it gives you such as 192.168.1.254 into your web browser.

You then need to look for wireless router settings or anything to do with configuration and make sure you have b&g band selected then make sure your router does not have any additional security features on it.
