Acer mail works in one environment, not in another
I am using an Aspire One under Linpus since 2 weeks. Internet works fine at home, either on cable or via access point.HOwever Acer Mail consistently reports "Server not reachable, try later" when I fetchmails from my provider. But when I take the small gadget to my office, connect it via cable or WLAN, AcerMail would contact my provider in seconds and collect the mails. Our home network runs since years, providing internet for generations of Windows machines 95, Nt, ... Vista.
Any suggestions what can go wrong at one place, but works fine at another? Thanks for hints Reprobus

The network center disappearing is an issue with the linux update server that seems to corrupt the OS.
The solution unfortunately is to reload the OS from the recovery disk.
The aspire ONE does not come with an ODD so you will need to use the disk on a unit that has an ODD to make the recovery USB flash drive.
You will need a USB flash drive that has at least 2GB of storage, a computer with an ODD, and the linpus recovery disk that came ywith your unit.
1. Boot to the linpus disk, one of the options should be to make a recovery USB drive, make sure that no important data is on this USB drive as it WILL be formatted and erased.
2. Follow the on-screen instructions and then insert the recovery flash drive in to the USB slot of the Aspire ONE.
3. Re-start the Aspire ONE and press F2 to go in to setup.
4. Change the boot order to boot from "USB HDD" and press F10 to save and exit.
5. Unit will reboot and recovery will start.
I use linux on my Aspire one but not Linpus Lite There is a known problem with the acer one switch. so you may want to try blacklisting the acer_wmi module and you mey have to change your wireless driver. try running NetworkManager in shell and see if it will give you any errors. My wifes Netbook has a similar problem She has the same linux i do. As far as getting NetworkManager to start automatically i'm not sure you may have to add it to startup applications but again i'm not sure about linpus and how it looks.
if your linux is corrupt which is a possiblity, you would need to go into recovery mode and try to fix your installation, however if you have a system disc that came with the machine you could always try to re-install the OS most linux distro's will allow you to select your old OS and import the settings from it during an install. However I would only do this if you cant recover your installation. ---------- DId some research, if you are using linpus linux which comes with the ONE, then it is a fedora based OS, which means you should be able to import your settings from the prior installation during a fresh installation of it.
I hope this helps, since linpus is pretty new I am going to do some more reading on it.
hi there, i had kind a same problem with u, the only difference is mine shows "connected" but i can't surf the internet when others in my network are doing just fine. 1st i tried to uninstall my LAN card driver and the reinstall it back. It worked, i can surf the internet but only for a few minutes. So i installed a firewall, in my case, i installed windows defender. After reinstalling my LAN card driver, i realized an unknown program tried to change some of my LAN driver files, so i denied the program access using windows defender. The problem solved !! Maybe it's a virus or spyware, i don't know because before installing windows defender, my avg and antispyware don't detect any virus/spyware. Hope this help, gud luck
Wow, sounds like you should get in there and config it. Boot up a liveCD that loves your Aspire One (not Generic All Acer PC Desktops, thanks,) like Linpus Install or Knoppix, and have a look at /var/log/messages to see what it's problem is; then put it back to working order from whatever changed.
What makes you think HAL and audio/USB drivers are missing? Are they not compiled into the kernel? Versions and context, please....
