    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.

No enternet access


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire.


Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver.

Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

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.

Laptop can connect to wireless router but not the internet


It could be a conflict with IP adresses. Go to your network connections and right click on wirless connection and go to properties. Scroll down the list to internet tcpip and highlite it. Once highlited go to properties. Then check the set manual ip adress and set it to whatever number you like. leave the bars as is. Do the same to the other laptop but different number.

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.

The battle: Acer Vs. Verizon FiOS


Verizon needs to apply a firmware update for the Atheros wireless adapter in your notebook. I work for Acer and I end up having to tell people this all day long. If you take this to a wireless router that is not from verizon you will have no problems with your connection. Maybe if enough Fios customers complain they will provide a firmware update for this.
