Below are the instructions on how to power-cycle your network. This will fix a lot of out-of-the-blue network issues. Unplug the power to your modem and router. Also, turn off your computer. Now that everything is powered down, wait 60 seconds. Then, plug the power back in to ONLY your modem. Wait another 60 seconds. Plug the power cable back in to your router. Wait another 60 seconds and then turn on your computer. Once your computer loads Windows and you see your desktop with all of your icons, give it a chance to connect to your network and open Internet Explorer. If this does not work, then I need more information about your network. First, how many computers do you have on this network? If you have other computers on this network, do they connect with an ethernet cable or wirelessly? Can the other computers get on the Internet, or is it just this PC which is having the issue? What brand of router do you have? Which version of Windows are you running on your Aspire One? And, finally, do you have DSL or cable Internet (if you have DSL, obtain your DSL username and password - as well as any other pertinent settings - from your ISP)? Please reply to this answer if the above instructions did not fix your issue. If the above instructions worked, then disregard these questions.
You can download the LAN drivers for Ace Aspire 5630 from the below mentioned website: http://gd.panam.acer.com/home/
Select the Model name of the computer Select the Operating System Click on Wireless LAN Drivers (Atheros) Download it and instal it on your computer.
Sounds like the problem may be related to the power management of the internal ethernet card.
You need to check these settings in the Acer ePower Management software (usually installed with the laptop).
E.g. If you the laptop is not charging then you will not be able to see or change any settings on the internal ethernet card.
If you do not have the Acer ePower Manager installed then you can download it here;
I believe you are trying to connect wirelessly using your laptop to your wireless router(Belkin 59G). Try to hook it up first on your computer and check if you can go online.
If yes, then that's the time you go to the router's set up page and check the wireless security of the router so that you can connect wirelessly.
If not, then you have to reconfigure the router and the modem. If your internet service provider is cable you can just turn off the router then the modem and waitfor 5 seconds. Turn on the modem, wait for the lights to turn on then the router. After that, check if the computer will be able to go online when connected directly to the router.
