Re: acer aspire netbook
Have you checked control panel internet connections to see if your connection is even showing in there
If it is I would right click then status and then repair
if that does'nt help then you may need the driver updated

That means there is a corrupt or a missing wireless driver on your new acer laptop. First of all if you are using Windows XP follow the following 1. Go to start 2. Right-click on "My computer" 3. Go to "Properties 4. Go to Hardware tab 5. Go to Device manager In the device manager check for any yellow question mark or an exclamation mark. Especially on the network adapters. That means if you had the network drivers working before, then they are corrupt or they are not there at all.
Here is the solution.. visit acer.com and go to their downloads and support tab, you will be abel to see the model of your computer and you can download the wireless drivers that are compatible with your laptop.
If you are using IE as your web browser you want to check to see that you do not have "Use a proxy server for Lan checked." Open up IE then click on Tools and then click scroll down to Internet Options Then click on the connections tab then click on Lan connections and make sure that use proxy server is NOT checked. Hope this helps.
Microsoft changed its log-in protocols since
the Aspire One was released and the version of Messenger installed is
unable to connect to the Microsoft servers.
You can get to the Live Update function by clicking on the settings
icon from the home page (bottom right of your screen) you will bring up
the settings window (obviously). Inside here, you will see the Live
update icon (mine’s on the bottom left next to Touchpad).
1. Make sure you’re connected to the Internet.
2. Click on the Live Update icon.
3. Click on “Update” and if there are any updates, they will be listed and you have the opportunity to install them all.
4. Click on Install and your Aspire One will automatically download and install the updates for your netbook.
Hi I am Vortash I find that Linux is having a fair amount of problems at the moment , possibly because of the trend to drift towards beta programs and systems not sure , but it sounds like the program is corupt if it was windows the fix would be simple .. i would say re-eneter your wireless /lan / earthnet card .. drivers depending on how your connecting , and press repair connection .. I think I would go a simillar way here and re-install connections .. hope this helps Vortash
You first need to establish that you have internet available to your router via cable modem, dsl, etc. Unless your modem is also your wireless router. Take your ethernet connection or cable that resembles a large phone cable and plug in your Acer One directly into the router. You should then be able to get internet. If not, you may have a problem with your internet in general and need to contact your Internet Service Provider. Also if possible try another pc, see if it has internet. Lastly try reinstalling wireless diver in device manager.
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.
