First post....I've searched and searched and can't find the same problem that I'm having.
I have an Acer 5315 and a Belkin router. My Acer when connecting wirelessly through the Belkin when a security password is turned on, my Acer cann't connect. It says its succesfully connected but I still cann't get to the internet. I'm making certain that I'm typing the password correctly....

When I disable any security on the Belkin and connect with my Acer it connects and takes me to the internet no problem.

Any ideas what the problem is? Is it the router or the computer?
I wouldn't mind so much but I travel a lot for work and all hotels have securtiy settings and I need to connect there and I don't want this to happen when I'm on the road.
So any ideas on what to do?

Thanks guys!

Been seeing a whole lot of problems with that adapter the last couple months, especially with WPA(2) encryption. Gets an IP configuration, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

In Device Manager right click on the wireless and "update driver." That apparently worked for one person. Then, unless you lucked out, download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site. Assuming that also does not work all I can suggest is to use WEP or get an external wireless card. You might also bug your laptop's tech support about the problem--maybe people can put pressure on Atheros to find a fix.

But you're posting from out of state now, right?

No I'm not posting from out of state. I'll be out of state next week.
When you say an external wireless card are you talking about one of the $30-$50 usb ones? Is there one you'd recommend? Are they just a plug it in and go type of thing?

An external card can be a USB or, depending on the type of slot your laptop has, can be ExpressCard (newer PC) or PCMCIA (older PC).

You have to install the driver--from the CD or the latest from the manufacturer's web site--and then they are pretty much like integrated adapters. Usually they work fine and sometimes they are problematic.

I've had good results with the Airlink101 USB adapter model AWLL6080 on Vista and Windows 7, but doubt it's still for sale. My PCMCIA cards are even older and I've never checked to see if they will work with Vista or Windows 7.
