I have an Acer Aspire one with LINUX. I have a wireless network up and operating with another laptop. Although I can get a wired connection, my Aspire will not connect to the wireless network (it sees it and asks for the key). Any suggestions?

Simple things first. Make sure you did not accidentally bump the wifi switch to the off position. It will be on the front or side somewhere, probably a small slide switch. Moving laptops around, it is easyto bump it.
You need your to connect your Aspire to a network on which there is a device that does have a CD drive. Share the CD drive with the network and you are home free.
That is how I get stuff onto my Aspire One.
As for connecting your cell phone to the device - sorry. I dont know how to do that.
If you need help with sharing your CD device or setting up a network, you can ask Windows how to do that. If you dont have a wireless router, you will need one. Oh yes, and a second computer. IF you dont have a second computer, borow one from a friend.
If you need more help ... Id like to give it a try.
Hi I am Vortash I find that Linux is having a fair amount of problems at the moment , possibly because of the trend to drift towards beta programs and systems not sure , but it sounds like the program is corupt if it was windows the fix would be simple .. i would say re-eneter your wireless /lan / earthnet card .. drivers depending on how your connecting , and press repair connection .. I think I would go a simillar way here and re-install connections .. hope this helps Vortash
Wireless communication "takes two to tango". Your computer needs a wireless adapter, and you need a wireless access point to connect to. Most wireless access points are setup to be secure with a password, and to connect to a secure wireless network you will need that password, and possibly the type of encryption.
You should start by enabling the wireless adapter in your computer, and searching for nearby networks. Please tell me what operating system you have (Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS, Linux, etc).
Check the wireless card connections physically. I received a Aspire one that had a wire disconnected from the card itself. if that is in tack find out what driver you are using for your card using "lsmod" see if there are alternatives. Try a live boot USB linux and see if your wireless card functions under that if it doesn't it is hardware if it does it is software. I would switch to another linux like sabayon or ubuntu eeepc versions they function better. I run Sabayon on both of my netbooks. Ubuntu ha sbetter support though.
