    Yes, it is my own home network. On my three other laptops, all of the close by wireless networks show up on the "view all wireless networks" page. On the Acer it says no wireless networks available.

    I can't access the internet on that computer. How can I go to the Acer website? I am using another computer to communicate with you.

    Need more info. Are you trying to connect to your own network or public domains? What kind of environment is the wireless device in, home, business, or apartment?

I just used recovery disk to restore back to factory setting for acer aspire 7741Z. Now it won't recognize my wireless router


To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
