hi, i did a dual boot with windows7 and fedora 17 64bit on my laptop(acer aspire v3-771G). i tried to connect to my router trough wireless connection. it connects but the moment i try to reqeust a webpage or trying to update fedora trough commmand it disconnects and asks for the password again 3 or 4 times then connects again untill i reqeust a webpage again ,then its disconnected again. the way i installed fedora was with shrinking the windows partition and then install fedora on the unallocated space.

First, make sure your laptop is 'not' connected to the modem/router via an Ethernet cable and follow the steps:

  1. Go to "Control Panel".

  2. Go to "Network and Internet" and then "Network and Sharing".

  3. Click on "Manage Wireless Networks".

  4. Remove all wireless connections by "right clicking" on it and select "Remove network" from the drop down menu.

  5. Close the oepn windows and reboot the computer.

  6. Once the computer is fully reloaded, scan for the "Wi-Fi networks".

  7. Click on the available network that you want to access and select "connect".

  8. It takes a moment, but then you will be asked to give a password for your Wi-Fi connection. Type in the password and click the "connect" button.

It should now be connected. know more at server error 3219
