No enternet access


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire.


Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver.

Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

Sounds like you have a firewall problem either with the Windows 7 built-in firewall or an anti-virus application firewall. Do you have an Anti Virus program installed?

I am connect to my wifi but i cant go online..help me please


Assuming your using vista - if your wifi led is blue you must have a wireless router to connect to - left click on the small computer icon with radio wave bars around it on your task bar - it will come up with a menu - connect to a network - select your network - address your password and connect - if it connects but your unable to access the internet through IE - look at your firewall - make sure it's under windows control not by your anti-virus like Nortons 360 - there are some heavy glitches with nortons 360 and windows firewall. Never let Nortons control your firewall.
If you still can not access the internet try getting and loading Firefox 3.6 it works when IE won't.
Let me know how you go.
