Network controller on Acer Aspire®
Reasons why the network controller is not working on Acer Aspire®
We all know that networking is primarily the biggest use of computers like the Acer Aspire®. Businesses, students and many other establishments from homes and corporations need a computer capable of connecting via the Internet and connecting with other computer networks. Connecting over the network would not be possible without the network controller. This device provides the unique MAC address that is essential to connecting to networks as well as to serve as the channel for Acer Aspire® to connect to the local access network as well as the Internet. However, there are events of situations that could affect the performance of the network controller on Acer Aspire®.
Here are some of the possible reasons for this device failure on Acer Aspire®:
- Virus issues
- Driver issues
- Hardware malfunction
Virus attacks could affect the performance of the network controller of Acer Aspire®. There are types of network viruses that can linger around the network and affect the software functionality of the device. If this happens, device failure could occur. One way of addressing this issue is by ensuring that a firewall protection and antivirus are actively protecting the system. If you are connected to a network, separate the devices from the infected network from the clean ones. This will ensure that only a limited space is covered by the virus. Implement an antivirus protection to clean the virus or opt for a complete restoration of the Acer Aspire® if the need arises.
Since the network controller works on a hardware-software relationship with the Acer Aspire®, one should make sure that the device is always updated. Updating the drivers will enable the device to function well and it will ensure that the latest updates are present in the device. Drivers should be highly reliable and certified or signed for compatibility. The last thing you want is a malfunctioning driver with bugs in it that could lead to a system malfunction and could even cause a system crash.
If you can, check the hardware of the network controller itself. If you checked that no viruses are present and no drivers are outdated or malfunctioning, it could only mean that the hardware is not installed properly or that the circuitry is jammed. Check if the controller is functioning well to ensure that the system is protected at all times. Replace the hardware and reinstall a new one if this is the case.
