Hi I am Vortash I find that Linux is having a fair amount of problems at the moment , possibly because of the trend to drift towards beta programs and systems not sure , but it sounds like the program is corupt if it was windows the fix would be simple .. i would say re-eneter your wireless /lan / earthnet card .. drivers depending on how your connecting , and press repair connection .. I think I would go a simillar way here and re-install connections .. hope this helps Vortash

I can´t get connected to wifi in acer aspire 300lci

The most common reason for lack of wi-fi is that the laptop maker put a hard-to see switch somewhere on the rim of the chassis. My Acer 3003lci has it disguised as an activity light on the front-center edge; if you acidentally press it, there's a light 'click', the orange light goes out, and the wi-fi device is turned off. Press it again, it's back on and takes a minute to find and reconnect to wi-fi. Others I've helped have HP laptops, where the switch is a slider with the tiniest blue pin-light to show whether it's on or off.

The 2nd most common reason is that Windows, in its infinite wisdom, thinks it can run the laptop's wi-fi device better than the device's firmware, and disables the device driver in favor of its own. If you tinker with the settings, you can fix this, but it requires much patience.

Acer aspire one notebook wont connect to my wi fi it was fine before

Try system restore.
Go to start - All programs - Accessories - system tools - System restore.

Try to restore your system to an earlier time - time or date when your system is still able to connect to your wi-fi router.

Wi-Fi drivers for Acer Aspire 4710Z for linux

The drivers for Windows can be used if no specific Linux drivers exist. There's a program within Linux called NDisWrapper which is designed to use the drivers provided for Windows XP in Linux. Refer to your particular distribution of Linux for the details on how to set up NDisWrapper from within your distribution (I've only done it in Ubuntu so have no experience of other distros)
