Re: Acer Aspire One will only connect via Fon now on HH 2

As you say, really strange problem...

No solution found as yet. During log-on to my normal SSID it returns a 'disconnected' message before passing on (and logging on) to Fon!

Re: Acer Aspire One will only connect via Fon now on HH 2

It looks as if FON is set to a higher position on your list of preferred wireless connections.
Is there any way to change the order? I know that the Atheros WiFi manager on my EeePC, has the facility to change the order of connections, by adding them to a special list.

Re: Acer Aspire One will only connect via Fon now on HH 2

I'm having a similiar kind of problem with my Aspire One. When I first enter the WEP code into the netbook it connects to the hub fine, but if I let the screen saver lock the netbook or reboot it, it will only connect to Openzone/Fon and not my own connection unless I re-enter the code.

Re: Acer Aspire One will only connect via Fon now on HH 2

There has been talk of an bios update for the network card to solve problems under linux, could be worth a try.

also seen the below which helped someone else, not sure if it would help you as, like others I haven't had much contact with Linux in years

1)Go to Files, then My Documents.
2)In the left pane, scroll to the top and select "Home"
3)Under the My Documents window, go to File and then select Terminal.
4) From terminal type:
sudo
5) Then type:
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /system/networking
(make sure you leave a space between each of "sudo" "gconftool-2" "--recursive-unset" and "/system/networking")
****

Check your exchange or major service outages
