I believe you can fix this problem without having to lose your files and also without having to reinstall your operating system.

In order to fix this issue you will need your windows XP cd.

Place the Windows XP cd into the optical drive and restart your machine. You need to boot from your Windows XP CD and at the prompt, press "R" for repair to get inot the Windows Console.

At that prompt, select 1 for your windows instalatin directory.

type "FIXMBR" at the prompt and restart your machine.

If this does not work, repeat the above process and instead of typing "FIXMBR", type "CHKDSK /R" and let it run to fix problems. It may take some time but once done, restart your machine and you should be back in action. Good luck

Ensure that you entered the right wireless key on the acerand disble all firewall and the antivirus to test the wireless connection on your ultraportable.

If that does not work reinstall the wireless card driver on the Acer one.

Also let me know if you have Linux or Windows installed.

Make sure the firewall software on the acer allows the wireless connections, try turning the firewall off for a moment and also disable the wired connection.

Make sure the network is safe or allowed most likely firewall blocking.
