Acer Aspire 6930 Laptop unable to connect to Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router (Model: WRT54GS)
Posted on 2011-02-28
I am needing help to get an Acer Aspire 6930 Laptop to connect to a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router (Model WRT54GS). At the present time, the laptop is unable to connect wired and wirelessly.
The operating system on this laptop is Windows Vista Premium SP1. Inspection of Device Manager reveals the following network adapters: Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet Controller and an Intel Wireless WiFi Link 5100. The broadband connection is DSL.
The pc I am currently on has a direct ethernet connection to the Linksys router; it has great internet connection. Therefore, I am leaning to think it might not be a router problem. Also, my friend on the other side of the house is connecting fine wirelessly to this router as well. So, there must be something wrong with the laptop itself. I am not sure though in terms of what to look for to troubleshooting this problem.
Any help resolving this issue will be greatly appreciated.
