All internet connections failed with Acer Aspire One with Linux

I just received an acer aspire one with linux, When I first booted it up it allowed me to see the wireless connections available. It now wont let me do that or use an air card. I've even tried to directly hook up the modem and that wont work either. Any suggestions?

    I recently bought my son an aspire one pc laptop and it recognized the wireless networks and connected to ours. Then is suddenly lost the connection and after several attempts still won't connect. It is saying that we have limited or no connectivity, but I have several other computers on my network that are having no problem accessing the internet.

Atheros AR5007EG adapter only WEP compatible. Wireless networks using WPA(2), or anything else won't work. If network is unsecured, it should connect.

Why wont my acer netbook allow me to enter the network centre or to connect to virgin internet either wired or wireless. i'm running linux lite not windows


go to the command line and type ifconfig

find the network adapter you are trying to connect with likely eth0 or eth1 if ethernet or wlan0 for wifi

then type

dhclient wlan0 (or whatever adapter you're using.)

if this doesn't give you an ip address, the virgin internet access point may not play nice with linux.

Acer one not finding any server


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.
