I want to know if iam obliged to have *linksys router *to running:acer 5532portable? thank you very much! cecilia

Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Obligated? That's a pretty strong word. I take it that you are referring to accessing your router with your Acer via Wi-Fi? If that's what you are asking, then the answer is, No. You are not obligated.

Your Acer has wireless-N Wi-Fi. So, it will connect to any router (Wi-Fi Hotspot) that has security turned off. (Read: any wireless router)

There's a great program all of us use to locate Wi-Fi Hotspots. And, it's free. Simply download it to your Acer - install the program - then reboot. It works almost automatically.

The program places a small 'Radar' screen on your laptop's desktop. The screen shows the direction where a Wi-Fi signal has been located. If there are multiple hotspots, it will lock onto the one with the best signal and then automatically connect you.

I bought 2 Acer Aspire one netbooks and I can't get either one to connect to wi-fi. They show strong connectivity to the wireless network, but no internet?

you are seeing it strongly connected to the ROUTER---try unplugging the router for a few minutes and plug it back in----Does the netbook "SEE" the network? entered correct ssid? Is the wireless switch enabled on the netbook?

Hi! Im asking can the following to prrograms run on the Intel Atom N270 1.6 GHZ. The first being Chris Swayers Locomotion and Slysoft's Game Jackel. I have read that they need Pentuim III eqvilents, but...

Probably not. Although the processor is marginally sufficient, you do not have enough video ram to run video games satisfactorily. You could always try installing one to see how it runs for you.

What processors could I purchase to upgrade the speed of my Acer a0751?

This is a NETBOOK computer -- only a qualified technician should be opening-up the computer to access the installed CPU: Intel Atom Processor Z520.

So, the short answer is "none can be purchased".
