Ahhh, Ubuntu. You may need to go online and find wireless drivers that will work with your wireless card.
On an unrelated note, OpenSolaris has an option on it to download all of the compatible drivers for your computer when you first hardwire it to an internet connection, so if you keep having trouble with ubuntu, you could always try switching over to that.
Does your home router have a password? The only thing I can think of doing is removing all the preferred access points from your wireless card's utility or windows (located at start => Setting => Net connections => Wireless => Wireless Networks.
I bought the same Acer at Wal-mart and it IS wireless,,, Sounds like Acer gave you the run around. If you already had a wireless router, then why on earth would you think you needed to purchase another one??? even if Acer told you to. That just doesn't make sense. What kind of router did you have to begin with? (Make and model please) Are your other computer that you have on the internet connected with a cable? If so they are not wireless.
okay......who is your internet provider??? if it is sasktel then they have a very helpful help line that that you can reach them at and their number is 1-800-773-2121. but before you do that....open your wirless conection options thing and then click advanced and then clik the litle square at the top that says let windows configure your wirless stuff (something like that :P) and then it should work...it did for me....but if that doesnt work give sasktel a call and they'll help you fix it :) (its 24/7 support so give em a call whenever :P)
