Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook
I would reinstall any updated driver for the wirless adpator now if that does not help you might try lowering the security at your acess point to a 64 bit wep key to speed up connection identification.
Also you might want to hard reset your router as well.

Hi mac_tucker. In case you are sure the wireless access point is not the problem and you configured it propertly such as SSID, Security, Wireless band and rate, etc. I recommend you go to the acer website and under downloads get the latest driver or firmware for the wireless adapter. If that doesnt solve the problem. Try using a cable for a while and see if you have the same problems. If you dont have ANY problems using the cable, try different configuration options. Probably changing from WEP Security to WPA or WPA2. Change the SSID (dont leave the default name) and change the channel and see if that takes care of it. i hope this helps and dont forget to rate my answer. Thank you :D

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
