This is pretty easy, you must remove the encryption(password) code from your wireless profile in your windows and write it again correctly, this happens due to many reasons, but it will finally work.

How can I get my acer aspire one mini laptop to access wifi?


Connecting your Acer laptop to your home wireless network is fairly simple. Before you begin you need to know the SSID broadcast name (Wi-Fi) network name and security passphrase (Wi-Fi network password).

Move the Wi-Fi switch to the "On" position. Not all models have this switch. Open the Windows Start menu and select "Connect To." A list of available connections will appear. Select "All" from the drop-down menu to view all available networks and connections within range. Select the desired network and click "Connect." Enter the security passphrase if prompted and click "Connect" again to join the network and gain wireless Internet access.

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


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
