This sounds like a power save feature as laptops tend to disable networking features when the battery gets low.
Plug in the power cord and see what happens

Internet connection problems


I had this problem too with my kid's Aspire One (Linux). It happened after I borrowed it to use at a PTA meeting, and the battery ran out on me. Thanks for the solution. It's all working now. Here are some detailed non-command line instruction for the same fix, for those of us who need it:

This is to find and delete the networking folder:

1. From the regular Aspire One options page, go to the Files panel
2. Click on the triangle to see more icons
3. Click on MyFiles, which opens a file manager window.
4. In the menu bar, select View->Hidden files, to show a tick in the box. (Sorry, I'm translating from a German display, so the option names may not be spot on.)You should be in the "My Disk:///" directory.
5. Find folder "gconf" and click on that
6. Find folder "system" and click on that
7. You should now see folder "networking" listed as one of the folders.
8. DELETE IT! (Right click on the networking folder, and select option delete.)

Okay, once you have recovered from the fear of deleting goodness-knows-what-file because you are just following some internet instructions, you have to re setup your wireless connection:

1. Shut down all those windows, and go back to the regular Aspire One options page.
2. Click "Settings" on the bottom right.
3. Click icon for "Netwrok Center". If this works, and a window pops up then it's going well.
4. Click on "New", and follow the on screen instructions to connect and re-setup your WLAN or LAN.

Oh, and do check that the little network switch near the bottom right of the keyboard is switched on. It should show an orange light.

Hope this helps

WIRELESS CONNECTION


Go to the Device Manager and check Wireless Network Adapter properties. Is the Wireless adapter installed, working properly and enabled? If not then reinstall the wireless LAN driver.

If it is OK then go to the Control Panel and click on Network Connections and right click on the wireless connection anf then click on Repair. This will make the wireless router issue a new IP address to the wireless LAN card and you whould now get access to the Internet & your network.
If this doesn't work power down your wireless router wait 1/2 minute, power up and boot up your laptop after all the normal LEDs on the wireless are on.

Let me know if you still have problems plus all error messages.
