Thanks for that but my netbook is not running on windows, it uses aspire one -Linex OS. So there is no start menu.

I can't find another to connect. The home screen is very basic and I can't find another way around it.

Hi there,
It sounds like you do not have the connection set up yet.
Try using the start button (bottom left hand corner of your screen)
Then click connect to, then click show all connections which will open the network connections panel.
Then you can configure the wireless setting (If you have one) if not, then try creating a new connection and follow the wizard, Hope this helps you, Chris

Restore to factory settings


The Acer Aspire One is a netbook, not a laptop.
A netbook is a smaller, scaled-down version of a laptop. It does not have the memory capacity or graphics of a regular laptop.
It also lacks a CD drive, which means you cannot restore the Acer Aspire One with restore discs. Instead, the netbook has a built-in factory restore feature.
You can reset the Acer Aspire One to factory settings just using your keyboard.
Only restore your netbook to factory settings if you cannot fix the problem any other way.
Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives.
Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.

Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the Acer logo on the screen.
The recovery menu will load.
Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options.
Choose "Factory Restore" to set your netbook back to factory settings.
Follow the instructions on the screen.
Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears.
Reboot the netbook when you are prompted.
Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

I've got an Acer aspire one d225 ,& it has wifi problem


Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon. This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look ((())) Make sure its pressed on. The internet connection is located in the system tray in the bottom-right corner of the screen. The icon looks like a series of rectangles that increase in from left to right. Right-click the Wi-Fi icon and select "Connect to a network." You will see a list of available wireless networks. Wireless Acer laptop can be a massive boon to your productivity when it is working properly and a massive headache when it is not. When your laptop card begins to exhibit undesirable symptoms, such as signal dropping, you can avoid a hefty repair bill by performing at-home troubleshooting. The best solution is to merely reinstall the software driver, which refers to the program that the operating system uses to speak the wireless card's language.

Open your operating manual and look up the model name and number for your laptop. Navigate to the Acer Support web page (see Below) and click on the "Downloads" link. http://support.acer.com/ Input the model number of your laptop, click on the "Search" button, download the wireless driver file for your laptop model and save the file to your desktop. Open the "Start" menu, click on "Control Panel" and open "Device Manager." Open the "Network Adapters" menu, double-click on your wireless card, select the "Drivers" tab, click on the "Update Drivers" button and choose the desktop as the location to search for new drivers. Click "Next" to reinstall the driver, fixing your wireless woes.

I have an acer aspireone notebook and i was wondering if im able to connect to wifi. i have a wireless internet finder that i can plug into it but it doesnt have a cd rom to be able to download the...


All netbooks have both the wired and wireless networking capability built-in. The Acer Aspire One AOA 150 Model No. ZG5 (8.9" screen) netbook has a RJ-45 jack on its left side for wired 10/100 Ethernet. On right-most part of its front is a slide switch to toggle enabling/disabling of the built-in 802.11b/g WLAN for wireless connectivity to WiFi. Click on the following link for a detailed description... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspire_one
Pushing the wireless slide switch to the right momentarily will cause either Wireless LAN Enabled or Wireless LAN Disabled in large green letters to appear momentarily at the bottom middle of the screen. Once enabled, look at the Taskbar at the bottom right of the desktop and click on the little terminal icon with ))) and a little red x beside it. This opens the Wireless Network Connection window and you would then do the following...
1. in Network Task sidebar click on the Refresh network list to update the wireless networks
2. in Choose a wireless network on the right side, click on an item in the list to select & hi-light it
3. click on the Connect button to get a pop-up window for Network key & Confirm network key
4. if unsecured network, the pop-up reminds you of the risks but you can Connect Anyway
5. in the pop-ups, you can click to either Connect (for secured), Connect Anyway, or Cancel
6. when connecting, another pop-up window appears with Waiting for the network
7. once connected, the selected network will move to the top of the network list
8. in the desktop's Taskbar, the little terminal icon with ))) will no longer have the little red x
9. right click on the icon to get a pop-up for the status and wireless connection management

Cannot connect my acer 5600 wirelessly. WIFI is not lighted on. It says to turn on wireless switch.


The wireless switch is on the front edge of the laptop. With the lid closed, its position on the front edge is just under the right latch of the lid. Turn on by sliding the switch to the right momentarily. You should see Wireless LAN Enabled in large green letters appear briefly at the bottom of the screen. A single screen icon should appear in the desktop's Toolbar at the bottom right of the screen. If the icon doesn't appear, then likely the Wireless Network Connection is disabled. To enable do the following steps....
1. click start button at bottom right of screen
2. click Control Panel
3. in the Control Panel window, click Network Connections
4. right click Wireless Network Connection
5. on the drop-down menu click enable
If there is no Wireless Network Connection in the Control Panel's Network Connection, then the setting up of the Wireless Network Connection was skipped when the laptop was first unpacked and setup. In Control Panel, click on the Wireless Network Setup Wizard to setup the Wireless Network Connection.

I have a wireless connection but cannot open the browser. Another computer (laptop) is connecting fine on the same wireless.


If the Wireless Network Connection icon is at the bottom right of your Taskbar and has a red x, then right-click on the icon to bring up a pop-up window and in that window, left-click on View Available Wireless Networks. This will open a Wireless Network Connection window which will allow you to Choose a wireless network. If the window has the message "No wireless networks were found in range", then you will need to slide the spring-loaded switch at the right-front the netbook to the right momentarily and the message "Wireless LAN Enabled" should show in large green letters at the bottom of the screen. Then in the Wireless Network Connection window, left-click on "Refresh network list" item under Network Tasks. In about 10 seconds, a list of the wireless networks will be displayed which should include the name of your wireless access point (wireless router). Left-clicking on that list item will high-light it in blue. Now click on the connect button at the bottom-right of the window. If the list item has a lock symbol, a Wireless Network Connection pop-up will now show to ask you to "Type the key" otherwise for an unsecured or open access point, a connection should automatically occur without having to type any key. The Wireless Network Connection icon in the Taskbar should no longer have the red x and hovering the mouse cursor over it will show the Wireless Network Connection status. Hopefully, if this procedure has solved your problem, you should consider securing your access point to prevent unauthorized access of it. After securing, you will need to refresh the network list and then do a re-connect.

I am trying to set up Wi-Fi from my acer notebook to my new stereo, could you please send me a network sercuity key


hi there!

The Acer Aspire One is a miniature laptop that includes many of the same features larger laptops have. The Acer Aspire One is about the size of a diary and features an 8.9-inch LED LCD display, an 84-key keyboard, two built-in stereo speakers and Wi-Fi capability. Though smaller than most laptops, the Aspire One functions much like other computers. The Aspire One uses the Windows operating system, so it connects to a wireless network the same way that any other Windows computer does.


Instructions

  1. Click the "Start" menu in the bottom left corner of the screen.
  2. Click the "Connect To" option from the menu that appears. The "Connect to a network" screen will appear.
  3. Click on one of the networks listed on this screen to select it.
  4. Click "Connect" at the bottom of the window. You now have set up a wireless connection on your Acer Aspire One.
The network security must be established by you.

Hope it helps,

How to connect to the Internet with the built-in


Do you mean a wireless network card? I am assuming you meant the wireless card. In windows donw in the bottom right there is a connection Icon. Right click on that Icon and select open network and sharing center. Then select your wireless network.
If you do not have a wireless network, yes you do need a wireless router.
If you do have a wireless network already set up, you will need to configure the settings so you can connect to it. Whatever the password is a so on.
