Question about Acer Aspire 5253-bz692
I recently got CenturyLink router and my laptop connected at first but then it got harder and harder to connect. it continually says that it couldn't connect to the internet. All my other home computers can connect.
You should go to the device manager and then select wifi and right click on it and select Reinstall Driver and if driver is not installed then you can locate the driver location or it will search automatically on internet.
After driver re-installation just click on finish.
Then try connecting to wifi.
The other reason may be the mac address of laptop might be blocked. You should check for this too. You have to go to setting of wifi for this and then wireless and then block list of devices.
If you find there the mac address of your laptop then you have to delete it.
Then you laptop will be connected.

Try re-installing the wireless card driver and the configure the wireless card to the wireless router's wireless settings. You can also have a look at the wireless card settings in the computers that is connecting to the wireless router/Internet and then apply these settings to the wireless card in the Acer.

ive had this problem too but i found a way to fix it, it seems that if u go into the ePowermanagement and if u search well enough the program can disable both LAN and WLAN to save some battery. You need to un-mark those options and all will the solved (atleast in my case)

SOURCE: Cant connect to the internet.
Click on Start and type CMD. Open CMD and type ipconfig. Check out the IP address V4 for the Local area ethernet adapter or wireless area adpater depending on wireless or wired connection. Any ip address other than of the class 169.254.x.x shoud be considered good. If you have an IP address is any other number other than the above you have a good IP address. to test the internet connectivity type PING www.google.com. If the results are Packets sent 4 Recieved 4 Lost 0 then the issue could be due to Internet Explorer bing corrupt or a firewall blocking the internet access. Power off the computer. Power on the system and as soon as you see the Dell logo please tap the F8 button 3 - 4 times. You'll get to teh Advanced Windows boot option screen. Select safe mode with networking and see if the internet works in the safe mode. If yes then it could be the firewall. Uninstall you antivirus and check.

Most Acers use an IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does and your router is using WPA or WPA2 (TKIP or AES) security then you'll need to update the driver by searching for it manually using the Custom button (Hardware) in Windows update (instead of Express). This driver is not part of XP service pack 2 or 3. In my experience if you don't update to the newest common form of home wireless security (WPA2 AES) then the older formats seem to become unreliable
