The wireless feature (Wireless LAN) on an Acer notebook allows you to connect to available networks.

have been made aware of the network icon issue in Linpus Linux , and
have been provided with a temporary workaround, while the software
vendor investigates this issue. Please follow the steps below: 1. Open the terminal by "ALT+F2" and then type "terminal" ->Run. 2 Run "mv ~/.gconf/system/networking ~/" to clear all the root network connections.
There is one space between mv and ~ and one space between networking and ~
After doing this, it will not have "ANY" network connections that may have been previously setup in network manager. Reboot the unit and the network icon will appear. You will need to configure your network again.
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.
