Re: connected to wireless network, but cant browse...
I think there might be lost in the packet sending. You said the PC is still connected to the network but not able to go online. Is there any other wireless computer which is able to go online wirelessly and working fine. If yes then try to uninstall and reinstall the adapter. If not then check the router wireless settings.

The wireless feature on a Gateway computer allows you to connect to a network without the hassle of cables. This allows you to browse the Internet conveniently wherever you are. Gateway computers rely on Windows operating systems, which come with a built-in feature to manage your wireless connection. This feature makes turning off your wireless connection an easy process if, for a moment, you prefer to connect to the Internet using a wired connection.
Click the Windows "Start" menu and click the "Control Panel." Click Network and Internet Connections > Network Connection, if you are using a Windows XP Gateway computer. You should see your wireless connection. For Windows Vista and 7 Gateway computers, click "Network and Sharing Center" from the Control Panel and click "Manage Wireless Connections." You should see your wireless connection. Right-click your wireless connection and click "Disable" to turn it off. Close "Network Connections" when you are done.

there are 3 or 4 different drivers on the acer website for you system for wireless networking download all of them and try them all one at a time if you do no know which one suites your system. they are labeled as wifi drivers. that would be the easiest route.
what you can see on your network connections? If you can see some icon of internet connection or local network connection you can right click and then point to properties after that you can see the local area connections properties. double click the Internet protocol (TCP/IP) click it and then click obtain automatically ip address. Some wireless network, you can see the network provider which you can see on your network locations. Sometimes you can put specific ip adress of your provider. If not? you can make your own network connection, right click the internet connection and then click properties follow the instruction and go to network connection and sign up your username and password so that you can access through internet connections.
Do you remember installing a wireless adpater on the pc that you upgraded to win xp? if not, then you really need to get a wireless receiver. Or you can also check you network connections under control panel, see if you have a wireless network connection under LAN or highspeed internet, if not you really need to get a wireless receiver for your computer.
I may be able to help with this...but I need a detailed description of how you have things connected between the XP desktop, the cable, modem, the Linksys router, and the laptop. Also, is the Linksys router new?
Typically, the wan port on the wireless router connects directly to the cable modem with a cat5 network cable....then the desktop pc connects to the router...on port 1 for example...with a similar cable. Once the wireless router is set up properly, the laptop should then be able to connect using wireless.
