Ubuntu Networking :: ACER Aspire 5750 Broadband / Can't Able To Detect Any Wired Connection?
Aug 3, 2011
I've recently purchased a new laptop of ACER(aspire 5750). I've installed two OS(win-7 & ubuntu 10.04 LTS). Till now, on my ubuntu every things working fine except i can't able to access my cable model broadband.
I open up the "Network connections" section & at there i saw it can't able to detect any WIRED connection.
I've checked my all my ethernet jack & all rest of connection. All r perfect. But, don't know why it can't able to detect my broadband. But, in windows section, broadband is working fine.
Ok, so I upgraded my acer aspire one to the new Ubuntu 10, and at first everything was working fine, except the audio. Now, for some reason, my wireless and ethernet ports have died. I can't get online by either method. I can do ifconfig <device> up and it will show up if i do iwconfig or ifconfig, but the wireless isn't associated with the AP. Currently I'm trying to load some drivers for my atheros card, and we'll see how that works outReally I was wondering, how come the modules don't load at boot time, and how can I fix this? I've been a Linux user for quite sometime, however I've been more of end user
We finally got internet in our apartment in China, but my husband was the only one home when the guy came to set it up (on his windows machine).
He connects by plugging in, then clicking a desktop icon labeled "Broadband Connection" where a box pops up with a username, a password box, and some buttons, one of which says "connect".
I am trying to figure out how to set this up on my netbook so that I can use the internet at home too. I have a feeling that even if I had been home when the setup guy came, he wouldn't have had a clue what to do with mine anyway.
On the WinXP machine: Connection Properties state that this is a PPPoE connection, with TCP/IP, QoS, and Deterministic Network Enhancer all checked. Under the security tab, unsecured passwords are allowed.
I'm using RedHat Linux. In my friend system have Winxp. I have 2 LAN Cards. I'm using wired Broadband internet. So i want to share my internet connection to my friend system through another one LAN card. How can i do this
I had windows and 8.10 earlier and now have single boot 10.04 !
1.) I can see wireless networks only after I am connected to the router through wired ! I guess its some thing to do with me activating ifup and ifdown, when my wired connection stopped working as i was trying to install wireless drivers.
2.) Even when I see wireless networks, i cannot connect to any of them.
I tried various things for a whole day trying to fix it and i doubt if i screwed up some thing that was running good.
I have an Acer Aspire One Netbook that has lost connection with the Internet. On clicking the Browser button I get a message saying "Your wired device is now connected" - but nothing happens. It was working fine up till about a week ago. A substituted computer will work OK from the same output from the Router/ Modem through the same cable.
I recently bought a new Acer Aspire and installed Lenny, I can get a wired network/internet connection however not a wireless connection. I use wicd. Bluetooth doesn't work either though I suspect that it might be the same issue.
Don't know if it helps however when I tpye iwconfig I get: ladb:/home/nigel# iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions.
I've just installed Ubuntu 10.4 as a dual boot on my Acer Aspire 0ne 533. I have to keep the Windows partition for work, or I'd have just installed Ubuntu. I'm used to plugging in an ethernet cable for the first round of updates until I get the WiFi working, but it just isn't working for me this time. I have a horrid feeling that Windows has a way of hogging the Ethernet card.
I had a look in the forums, and could not find anything referring to this specifically, which is unusual because as far as I can tell the AA1 is a popular machine and lots of people dual boot it. Perhaps it is an easy fix that's been buried in the archives?
after finally getting this machine tot run with ubuntu i am now on an ethernet connection because all of a sudden, my wireless says its disabled. When iwconfig is entered, it shows my wlan 0 but says power management : off. It is so frustrating because I feel like there should just be a button that says to switch it on haha. Please help, my wifi was working, and after a boot it is no longer.
Maybe they made a change without changing the model number? I have an Acer aspire 5517 bought last Friday, and with Ubuntu 9.10 the wired network came up fine, I upgraded with latest fixes today, but it stil doesn't recognise the wireless interface at all, not "network connections" window, not "ifconfig -a".
I searched everything before posting this, and tried every solution, but so far no luck, i will post my info, and hope someone smarter then me can solve this? Wireless works fine in windows, but apears disabled in ubuntu lspci -nn

the laptop has no bluetooth chip, so i am not sure where "acer-bluetooth" is coming from. Also i am quite familar with linux, so no need to hold my hand, i am just not sure what to do next in this situation. (if this makes solving this easier)
PS: There is no 'hardware switch' on the laptop, but there is a Fn+F3 key combination which does nothing. network-manager shows on startup 'Enable wireless' with no check next to it, checking it 'Enables' it, but the wireless remains disabled.
This bug has been around for years now?!? Surely this can be fixed by now, would somebody please feel this very common issue. I've installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Acer Aspire One 110AB netbook and everything seems to work fine except the wireless - I can connect via ethernet no problem.
While the wireless can scan for networks - it seems them but they seem to be rather weak signals and also no matter never connect UNLESS I turn off ALL WEP/WPA security clearly not an option.
I had UBR installed and working fine for a month or so, wireless and everything. Then I did a clean re-install while trying to add WinXP to half of my drive.Anyway, with the new install, my wireless chip (BCM4312 802.11b/g) isn't switching on at all. I've tried installing the Broadcom driver that appears when I run Hardware Drivers, but that doesn't help.With the old install, the wireless switch and indicator light on the front of the netbook worked, now nothing.
I have an Acer Aspire One 1551 netbook. After I installed Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Remix (my first Ubuntu, though), I discovered that wi-fi device isn't being recognized - ifconfig says that I only have ethernet device present.Somehow rfkill list indicates, that acer-wireless is always blocked. How to unblock it? rfkill unblock 0 doesn't resolve the issue - device is still blocked.somehow 'Fn+WiFi' combination on keyboard activates/deactivates Bluetooth instead of WiFi. Can I alter the behavior of the combination to turn on/off wireless networking? I googled for a while but fruitlessly. Is it a known problem? Is there a workaround for it already? Is there any additional information (clues) I can provide to speedup the process a bit?
I have an Acer Aspire One ZG5, which is running (Desktop Version) 10.04. I've been happily using the built in wifi adapter, but now I've got a new wireless hub that supports 802.11n and I want to exploit the higher connection speed. I've bought a wireless usb that has no external markings, however, using 'lsusb' I've managed to establish it contains ralink 3070. Any ideas how I get this to work? When I plug in the wireless dongle from another laptop I get two connections available for use in network manager, but when I plug this one in nothing seems to happen.
Fresh install Ubuntu 10.10 on Acer Aspire 5050 with new hard drive. I struggled to turn the Wifi's button turn on but led light always on. It does not detect wifi driver. I installed ndiswrapper to get Acer's Winxp driver: netathr.inf by Windows Wireless Drivers from Ubuntu Software download. It's same thing as ndiswrapper.

I can't get my wireless card to work. I downloaded a broadcom driver for it and i do believe its the right one, but its not helped. I'm running mint 8. The information on my internal wireless card i got using the terminal is:
lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 760/M760 Host (rev 03) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SG86C202 00:02.0 ISA bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS963 [MuTIOL Media IO] (rev 25) 00:02.1 SMBus: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS961/2 SMBus Controller 00:02.5 IDE interface: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 5513 [IDE] [Code]....
It's a Acer Aspire 4520 Laptop running Vista Ultimate. All Drivers are working fine except Wireless. No wireless adapter is shown in Device Manager. Acer website was no help at all, has the drivers but no adapters for download. This laptop shows that it has Acer signalUp, also shows 802.11b/g WLAN on the sticker. I've downloaded Athero AR??? wireless driver, did not do anything to help the problem, downloaded the broadcom one also and it did nothing. Works fine on the LAN cable but no wireless.
