In Win 7 , First , Install ALL Windows updates and Acer updates. Shut down the machine and unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot. THEN, Open the Device Manager, Scan for Hardware Changes. Did it come up at reboot? YES/NO? If no, Select YOUR OS, 32 or 64bit and Download the wireless lan driver at :

Acer d260 wireless

Click the start button>rt click my computer>click manage>click device manager. Look for the "network adapters". If the wireless adapter is showing but has a yellow "?" it is not dead but you need the drivers. If it isn't showing it's most likely a hardware problem. Verify by clicking actions in the upper left of that window and clicking check for hardware changes and rechecking your adapters section.

If there is a missing driver, pop in the acer driver CD and install the wireless driver from there.
to run the wireless manager, press Fn + F3 to turn the wireless on

I have a new aspire one d260 that will not connect to my network. it will not even accept that my router is broadcasting however it will pick up other networks on the street. I have even tried to connect...

can u see the wireless icon in the taskbar near the time?if not, try 2 right click my computer, then manage, device manager, and see under network adapter the wireless adapter, maybe it doesn't exist or is not recognized, or maybe it has a yellow mark with a question mark in it, if its the case, then you'll need to find and install the driver, all these assuming that your new aspire is wireless capable

WN111 adapter only detects G networks, no N networks detected!!

your problem is simple and applies to most cases. It is lack of technological expertise or lasiness. By that I mean, You did not read the router manual or did not understand it. By default that router comes up in dual band mode. Meaning that it uses 2.4 Ghz for the G and 5 GHz for the N networks. If you want to benefit fully from the WN111 performance in the N mode then you must change the router to operate in a single band mode. (see the manual for the router to see how to do that). (hint: you need to bring up a broswer and type the router's IP address. netgear login standard is: admin and password is password. Go through the router setup and read the extensive explanations for each setup.
