Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

Acer Notebook Wireless connection

We have a broadband connection in our house, and I've just bought Netgear software to add a wireless connection for a notebook to use internet in the house as well. We have a connection with a really good signal, but when I try to go on browser it says:
'Browser not found. Firefox can't find the server.'
How do I change the firefox settings on the notebook or solve this problem???
Please help!
Thanks
NB: The notebook is not the one in the product description. It's a Acer Aspire one series ZG5, but I couldn't ask otherwise.

    i've tried looking in the firewall bit, but it's a Linux system so I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing.

    Please if anyone can help I would really appreciate it.

    I think I need to know how to change the firewall settings on a Linux system.

    Thanks

How to connect my Acer Extensa 367T wirelessly


You can use your USB port to install a wireless "stick" i call it or it should have a built in wireless modem. Take it to you to Best Buy or Staples and they will have what you need especially if you already have wireless service coming into your home. God Bless and Best of Luck!!

We just bought an aspire one acer laptop. Trying to conect to a netgear router. Help!?

If you are trying to connect the computer to the router with a cable the above diagram should help to explain the simple broadband signal path from the Ethernet or telephone wall socket, to the router and from the router to the computer's RJ45/Ethernet port. Once the computer is connected to the router by a cable is connected to a telephone wall socket or a ERJ45/Ethernet wall socket that has a 'always on' broadband internet signal coming into it, nothing else is required -> launch the Web Browser.
If you are connecting wirelessly the wall socket to the router part of the setup is the same but no cable is required between the router and the computer.
Enable the wireless function in your netbook, click on the image of two computers bottom right near the clock -> view available networks/connect to network -> click on the appropriate Netgear router signal -> connect -> launch the Web Browser.

Hello cornellcampb,

The Netgear WG111 USB Wireless Lan Adapter is a decent WiFi LAN adapter. It is reasonably priced and it's software is easy to install. I've been using it for a few years and it works fine.

Perhaps you have turned on MAC (physical) address filtering on your wireless router/access point? If so, you have to add the MAC address of your new wireless card to the allowed list.
