Hi,
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.

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.

SOURCE: I can't connect to the internet on my ACER Aspire

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

What's the difference between a modem and a router?


A modem in a nutshell translates computer network traffic into in your case an analog signal that can be carried over the phone line to centurylinks central office in your area. A router is designed to route in a home setting, IP packets within your home network. So you need a router in share that modem connection.

Can not connect because password is to long


There are two ways to connect using wifi. One way is to let the sofware that came with the adapter (in your case Centurylink) or you can let windows manage the wireless (Called Windows Zero Config). Open your Century Link software and look around through it at all the tabs and if you see something like Let this too manage the wireless connection, uncheck it. If you see something like Let Windows Zero Config manage the wireless connection check it.

Windows will allow for a long password.

Limited or no connectivity to wifi.


Do the other machines on the network connect to the internet?
If so, you know its a problem with your wifi settings. Try opening a command window: start>all programs>accessories>command prompt. In this window type: ipconfig /release and press return. Then type: ipconfig /renew and return. This will assign a new ip address to your machine. If it is a problem with the network you will need to reset the modem/router and reconfigure it with your ISP details.

You need to verify your connection type w/ Centurylink- they may run on DHCP which is a different connection protocol than PPPoE. If you have a static IP address, fair warning: the Verizon Actiontec is historically tetchy on static and NOT to be used as a primary modem/router- it will lose settings.

Please see the attached manual for the centurylink router and modem. There is a section discussing RIP direction. Normally it is set to none because it assumes the centurylink unit is your router. Change that setting to both and then reconnect your router and see what happens.

The link for the manual is:

ftp://ftp.zyxel.com/P-660R-61/user_guide/P-660R-61_3-40.pdf

If this works, please indicate so with your response. If not, then provide more information about what you have tried and how you are trying to set everything up.

Good Luck.
