    I am running vista, I think now it maybe a virus. As it has affected our other laptop also. When I change settings and restart they go back to original status. Nothing shows up when you do a virus scan. Dont know how to get rid of it to solve problem.

Reinstalled vista home basic on acer aspire 5520 wireless


Do you have a disk or the wireless router? If this hasn't been re-installed then the notebook will have no way of connecting to the net.

My wireless wont connect to home, and it shows a big red ''X'' whenever i try. It says that the setting are different, I changed NOTHING and it worked last week.


I'll assume you're using Windows Wireless:

Right click on the taskbar icon + view available wireless networks + change order of preferred networks + delete you network from the list + add network + manually enter the SSID and the security key + ok and exit.

Wi fi connection


Try to check on the device manager if the wireless adapter and the ethernet adapters were installed properly. If it appears with a questionmark, uninstall it and try reinstalling it without the ethernet cable connected.

If you are using Vista system, after installing the adapters, go to the network connections and just click on tcp/ip then click on properties. Exit from the window by clicking ok until all windows will be closed for the network connections. Reboot your pc and try if you can obtain a connection.

I'm trying too connect to internet/


This depends if you connect with an ethernet cable or wireless connection. With the cable, just plug into your modem or router. If wireless, then you need to set up the wirless connection on your computer.
