Wired or Wireless? If Wireless will not connect, First try a test, using a Ethernet cable connect directly to the ISP modem, Does it connect? Yes or No? If yes, move the cable to the Wireless router, Does it connect, Yes or No? If no, Contact ISP. Check ALL cables to the ISP and Wireless device ,reseat cables. It may be the Laptop Wireless or wired adapter, reboot the laptop and the wireless device. I don't have all the info needed to supply a more percise solution. Try a IP release and renew using this procedure : http://helpdeskgeek.com/networking/release-and-renew-an-ip-address/
Go to Control Panel and click Network Connections. Right click on Wireless Connections and select View Wireless Networks. You should see your wireless network listed, select it and click connect. If you do not see any wireless networks displayed, then make sure you can connect your PC to the internet with a network cable to rule out any other problems on your PC. If you are trying to connect to a home wireless router, reboot the router by disconnectng the power, wait about 30 seconds and plug it back in.
I have a similar problem with my Linksys G router. It is putting out a weird ip address through DHCP. While this does not fix the problem, setting up a static ip eliminates it for now. If I ever find out the cause, I will post it.
disable wireless then enable it ... or reboot the computer reboot router aswell, in this order broadband modem reboot wireless router, then reboot the laptop it should pick up the router and connect... see if you can connect to the router with a wired connection from the laptop .... if you can try doing a driver update acer always putting out new drivers for the wireless cards
Check you internet settings. Set up a home network from your computer and use all the recommended and default and automatic settings. Then the program will renew the IP address on YOUR pc to match the routers.
To access your router. Go to your pc's web address and type 192.168.1.1 If it by chance asks for username and password, type "admin" for both. Now you can set up your router options from your pc
Your laptop should pick-up and connect to the wireless connection automatically. Go into Control Panel and click on Networking. You should see the networks that you are able to connect to. But you need to know the name that was given to your network in order to connect to the correct one. If there are two or three names then some of those are your neighbors wireless. If you do not see any Networks to connect to, then repost because that means your network card is not working.
If your neighbors know that your using their router, you might ask them to reset it. If they moved it, this could cause the weakening of the signal, walls drastically decrease a wireless signal. You might also refresh your wireless card by uninstalling the wireless drivers and reinstalling them.
