Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook
I cant get in to the network centre settings and i have no wireless icon am double clicking on network connections button but it just wont open and there is no connection icon on the desk top or tool bar, had been working fine up until a couple of days ago. Am running Linux
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."

Your going to have to reinstall the OS I'm afraid as there is no way of getting into the network center because its become corrupt, Linux is free to download and i suggest Ubuntu.
You are however going to need an external CD/DVD drive to install the new OS from.
You probably think that its a bit of a drastic solution but i have worked on a few Acer one's all with the same problem and so far i have not been able to get into the network center.
The customers have all ended up with XP on the laptops instead.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news and good luck!!
