How do I connect my laptop into an existing LAN network?

Unless you have some security in place or messed with the adapter settings, plugging it into an Ethernet cable should be enough to get it connected.

Everything was finewith wireless until we pluggd ethernet cord into back of siemens for xbox 360 now computer (wireess) doesnt work upstairs help

check what cable you plugged into the xbox...and be sure is not the main internet cord that it supposed to be in the wlan port of the router ...and get a cable from one of the router's LAN port into the xbox..and leave the main one into the wlan ..this way you will have wireless ...if the configuration on cables is ok ...get into the settings of the router from the admin computer the settings were made in the first place ....and see whats wrong with the wireless settings ..they may be disabled by mistake ..or another odd reason ...and enable the wireless transmitting again ..

Can you plug it directly into the router using the Ethernet connector on the laptop and blue Ethernet cable. If you can and it works, then the problem is with the WiFi and not the router. If it doesn't work you may have to reset the router or the modem or both.

Sounds like the problem may be related to the power management of the internal ethernet card.

You need to check these settings in the Acer ePower Management software (usually installed with the laptop).
E.g. If you the laptop is not charging then you will not be able to see or change any settings on the internal ethernet card.

If you do not have the Acer ePower Manager installed then you can download it here;

Use this Tip as check list for your connection.
  1. connect your PC to router using a LAN cable and be sure you can browse
  2. connect to you router config page as admin and disable your security on Wlan, create a Unique SSID name for your WLAN.
  3. stay connected with Lan Cable and check if you see the just created WLAN (= unique SSID)
  4. Connect to Wlan using same parameters (no security)
  5. as soon you are sure connection established (browse Net) disconnect LAN cable to check reliability.
  6. reconnect Lan cable and reinstall security protection: WPA + PSK, TKIP passphrase, NO broadcast. and match router settings with PC settings.
  7. retry every step if not successfull until ypu master the environment.
