Some laptops have a small switch on the body of the laptop that turns on/off the wireless connection, check for that first. Otherwise, it can be disabled with the function keys on the keyboard. Press and hold the 'fn' key and then press the key in the top row that has the little antenna icon, that should re-enable it.

Can't get my lap top to connect wirelessly to my router. Model # WRT54G2. The laptop says it is reaquiring the network address, but nothing happens.


The Network and Sharing Center in Microsoft* Windows Vista* can be used to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If an Internet connection is not automatically made by the operating system, you may need to contact your access point (AP), broadband wireless router manufacturer, or Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Set Up a Secure Wireless Connection to the Internet


These steps assume that your network adapter; AP or router; and cable, DSL or another type of modem have already been physically connected and configured. They allow you to create a new connection and configure it accordingly.

Follow these steps to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If a wireless profile does not exist, you will need to create a secure wireless profile before you can set up a wireless connection to the Internet.

1. Access the Network and Sharing Center.

2. Select Set up a connection or network.

3. Click Connect to the Internet.

4. Click Next.

5. Select Wireless. At this point, if the network(s) that are listed say that the network settings do not match the network requirements, as shown in Figure 1, create a secure wireless profile and then follow the steps again.

6. Select a network and click Connect. If you are not connected to the Internet, you may need to contact your AP/router manufacturer or ISP.

Access the Network and Sharing Center


To access the Network and Sharing Center, use one of the following methods:
  • Start » Control Panel » Network and Internet » Network and Sharing Center
  • Start » Network » Network and Sharing Center
  • Right-click the network system tray icon (the icon that displays two computer monitors) » Network and Sharing Center

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

My acer aspire one mini notebook doesnt connect to internet


This will happen if you let the battery go completely dead. Some files become corrupted.
Solution:- Right click on Settings (preferences some models). Select 'Network' then double click on 'gFTP'. Scroll down to '.gconf' and double click. select and double click on 'system'. Right click on 'Networking'. Scroll down to 'Delete'. Left click on 'Delete'. Confirm 'YES'. Turn off the computer, then restart. What you have done now forces the computer to re-create the networking file. Your networking icon should re-appear on the taskbar. Note this is only for LINUX systems. - Good Luck!
