Hi, i'm also a windows user but i have dabbled in ubuntu, so here goes.
First connect a ethernet cable to the router , you should than be able to open a web browser and input your routers ip address and enter setup.
make sure mac filtering is disabled.
You need the wireless part activated to find laptop.
Just to note i have never heard of a west066 router, I can't find one on google search.

If you need more help , please ask.

Regards - Anthony

My acer aspire one wont connect to internet. it says it is connected to wireless, and i have wired it to modem but the problem still persists. please help.


Based on your description, the following is assumed.
1. The service to your Internet Service Provider is through a cable or DSL modem.
2. Internet service was initially set-up with your netbook directly connected to the modem.
3. A wireless router was since added and is using the direct wired connection to the modem.
4. The netbook is connected to the wireless access point being provided by the router.
5. The netbook says it is connected to the wireless access point but still no internet access.
The problem is likely due to the modem capturing the MAC address of the netbook when access to the internet servce was initially set up using the netbook directly connected to the modem and now the modem will only allow access with the netbook directly connected to it. You can check this out by reconnecting the netbook directly to the modem. It may be possible to "flush" the captured MAC by unplugging the AC power to the modem, waiting a few minutes and then powering back up with the router connected in place of the netbook. To make it easier, you may want connect your netbook directly to the router's LAN side to check if you now have internet access through the router. If you still don't have internet access, you will need to use your netbook to log onto the router to clone your netbook's MAC address for the router's WAN connection. The router's user guide/manual has directions on logging in and doing the MAC address clone. It will also have an explanation as to what is a MAC address.

I bought 2 Acer Aspire one netbooks and I can't get either one to connect to wi-fi. They show strong connectivity to the wireless network, but no internet?


you are seeing it strongly connected to the ROUTER---try unplugging the router for a few minutes and plug it back in----Does the netbook "SEE" the network? entered correct ssid? Is the wireless switch enabled on the netbook?

The os is to frustrating linux is not for me ..xp is what I want .need to get linux out then install xp.


The particular model of Asus is apparently pre-loaded with Xandros Linux operating system.

It appears that you are not familiar with Linux and hence the apprehension and feeling that a shift to XP would be easier.

Why not give Linux a try ? There are a good many websites out there which go through the basics of using a Linux PC. Try them out, by spending some time in learning - you will get far more satisfaction and become more productive in using your laptop.

Some websites which might be of assistance to you are listed below:-

I am unable to connect my acer aspire to a my existing wireless connection


I have two Acer Aspire One Netbooks: x1 10.1" and x1 8.9". The switch located on the very front right edge of these Netbooks is quite tricky to get it to actually switch the WiFi radio ON / OFF. Double check that switch position and since it is spring-loaded, you will have to try to see the tiny green light flickering if WiFi radio is active. The green ON (active radio) lamp is TINY and dim at best even when Brand new.

Also, if I have had the radio OFF and / or the Wireless connection 'disabled" on purpose, both of my Netbooks require a full hard boot before they will again connect to WiFi.

Hope this helps!
Good Luck
