Can't get Aspire One D255 to connect to wifi [Solved/Closed]

Ask a question Sally - Last answered on Jan 15, 2015 at 04:42 PM
Hello,

I have just purchased an Acer Aspire One D255 but it just won't connect to my wifi router. The wifi light is on (orange/red) on the netbook. My router is on. But each time I try to connect it says 'Limited Access' and won't actually connect to the Internet.

Help! What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Wow I had to just post this to thank Jumpa for that solution. My friend's Acer Aspire One D257 just would not connect to the internet and this solution worked when nothing else would. If you don't mind Jumpa, I'll clarify the fix for Windows 7 users.

1) Right-click on the wireless network icon next to time/date
2) Select 'Open Network and Sharing Centre'
3) Click 'Change Adapter Settings' on the left
4) Right-click 'Wireless Network Connection' and go to properties
5) Uncheck all the boxes except for 'Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
6) Click ok

It wouldn't hurt to update the wireless driver as well though.

Thanks man, I could go crazy without this hint.
Now I finally can tell my work on my upgraded netbook is done (SSD; 2gb; Win7 64bit).

I've found that updating the wifi card driver has worked stupendous. Its an Intel wifi card so go to intel.com find drivers and downloads click on wireless networking>Intel WIFI Products>Intel WIFI Link 1000. Install after download and Boom issues fixed!

OK here's the fix for the ACER ASPIRE ONE D255 With XP or W/7 Right click wireless connector ,bottom right near clock / open network connections/ advanced/ advanced settings / make sure all bindings for wireless connection are checked off / hit ok or apply you dont even need to reboot

Thats what was wrong with my fiancées Acer D255, What the driver does That "Dev's talking about" is, it turns these settings on so either way thats what worked for us & thanks Dev I was just pulling out the flash drive with both the 35 meg and the 7 meg drivers you talked about when she figured it out!
Good luck 7 please let us know if that helped you out
Sincerely
Rick & Tiffani

Acer Aspier One D255 (OS-XP SP3) Resolution: (Thank You)

The Uninstall (& Reinstall, upon reboot), of both the WiFi and Ethernet adapters, seems to have fixed my issues with my netbook.
As an additional precaution, (for contiguous functionality), I also disabled power management on both adapters, post, reinstall..
After reconnecting to my router, browsing seems to be normal.
Thank you for your helpful recommendations.
