I have an acer aspire one laptop that will not connect to internet thru wireless connection. System shows that wireless connection strength is excellent but internet explorer cannot display webpage. ...

1.- Try to find the wireless card switch (or button). Look the wireless led indicator, must be on.
You should surf if the led is on.

2.- If not works, go to device manager and look to your wireless device and turn the switch on and
off again. Look if the device is accepted without any sign. If the device get any sign then you
have problem with your wireless driver. If no sign. Open My Computer and then open networks
or my network places, and try to access to any other computer you have.

3.- If the device is ok in device manager and the led indicator is on and you can access other
computer thru network places, then open Internet explorer, go to tools, then go to internet
options, then go to connections and there click on Lan settings. In the proxy section uncheck
the box. Restart your Internet Explorer and it must surf now.

Good Luck and remember to rate my answer.

Wireless internet is not working after restoring factory settings

Oh, wireless Internet? You restored it? Did you install a different operating system? Or had you installed one before resetting? A change of OS may result in the deletion of particular drivers.

Go to the manufacturer's website. There, search for your model's support and download the drivers you want, for instance, the wireless network adapter drivers. Also, check your sound.
