Have a good look around the sides of the laptop for a switch or button to activate wireless connections, without this turned on there will be no chance of connecting to any network

please rate my help to you

Please be sure that, the machine has a integrated wireless receiver. Then you have to make a new wireless connection and not a lan cable connection.

I cant get into the network centre settings and i have no wireless icon


Hi,
Found this on the web and it worked for me.
"Follow this then restart and everything should come back to normal. It took me 3 minutes and worked fine.
This is to find and delete the networking folder (which is causing the problem):
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. You should be in the "My Disk:///" directory.
5. Scroll down until you find folder "gconf" and then 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.)
I just restarted from here and the icon re appeared in bottom right the menu bar, I just clicked on it to set it up with my wifi signal and it did the rest itself."
