Question about Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop
Our Acer Aspire laptop was connected wirelessly to our Belkin router but suddenly disconnected and will not reconnect. The desk top computer is windows XP and our broadband provider is Virgin broadband. It will connect to other routers but not ours. Does anyone know why?

The issues might also be related to the level of encryption.
Can you connect if you setup your wireless AP as Open with no encryption? Apparently Viasta has issues with WEP 64bit keys.
Configure your AP with WPA-PSK authentication and then chose between TKIP or AES, which ever works for you. Seems TKIP works for some while AES works for others.

There are two things you can do to attempt clearing this issue up.
1) go into the wireless networks tab in the properties of your wireless card. this section stores information on all of your preferred networks and the encryption keys. Remove all the networks from this list, reboot, then try connecting, it should ask you for your password then connect fine. This happens occasionally when windows takes too much control over the Zero Config service.
2) Reset your router with the pin on back after removing any mac filtering, changing your wep key (try using WPA for more security) and making sure all your stuff is set to auto. after resetting try step 1 and retry.
If this does not work, there may be an association issue between the hardware, try using a LiveCD linux that can use your wireless card to see if it can connect. If it can, it is simply just windows.
