Notebooks are notorious for problems with internal wifi. When I first encountered this problem years ago, I spent over 30 hours researching and testing various solutions.
Here are some work arounds which I have used in the past successfully.
1. If there is still a warranty coverage and you can go without this computer for some time, send it to the manufacturer. They may replace the board and restore you to what you to a place of comfort.
2. Purchase a new or refurbished USB wifi. I have acquired online or at stores such as TigerDirect.com refurbished USB wifi for as little as $10.
If you purchase a USB wifi you will still be able to use your internal wifi. However, when it fails, you will have the option of inserting the USB wifi. I suggest that when you insert the USB that you shut down your internal wifi. If both are operating there is a tendency for the system to slow transmissions somewhat.
If you decide to troubleshoot your problem to come to your own resolution you are likely to end at a point of frustration. You will find a workaround a better approach.

How can I get my acer aspire one mini laptop to access wifi?


Connecting your Acer laptop to your home wireless network is fairly simple. Before you begin you need to know the SSID broadcast name (Wi-Fi) network name and security passphrase (Wi-Fi network password).

Move the Wi-Fi switch to the "On" position. Not all models have this switch. Open the Windows Start menu and select "Connect To." A list of available connections will appear. Select "All" from the drop-down menu to view all available networks and connections within range. Select the desired network and click "Connect." Enter the security passphrase if prompted and click "Connect" again to join the network and gain wireless Internet access.

I hav e an Acer Aspire 5742G model. The Wi-Fi works well, but then I can't get the bluetooth to work. What might be wrong?


Hello there,
The bluetooth of the acer aspire 5742g model does not work on its own. It requires you to connect a bluetooth dongle on to it via the usb port. Then you will be able to use the bluetooth of the laptop.
Try it out and see.
Hope this was helpful to you. Goodluck Elect_Comp

Acer aspire one notebook wont connect to my wi fi it was fine before


Try system restore.
Go to start - All programs - Accessories - system tools - System restore.

Try to restore your system to an earlier time - time or date when your system is still able to connect to your wi-fi router.
