Question about Acer Aspire 4520-5582 Notebook
My wireless signal on my Acer aspire 5223 stop working after purchasing it a month ago. It shows on the laptop under the wireless network connection that I have excellent signal strength from the Netgear router I am using and even shows that the laptop is connected with the router wirelessly. But for some reason a yellow bubble with an exclamation mark (!) inside of it shows up indicating there's a problem and I'm not able to get on the Internet. I tried using a ethernet cord from the router and still wasn't able to get on the Internet. I also tried a few times unplugging the router and modem for 60 seconds and once everything was hooked back up, I still was having the same problem. Also when this problem occurred an unidentified network/public network icon appeared on my Network and Sharing Center when originally the laptop was connected under a home network with the home icon. Please help me.
