Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
Every time I turn off the Wireless modem for the night, at the first boot-up of the PC, the wireless connection cannot find a wireless network available (even though there is one). Pushing the button to connect (alone) won't do it either. Nor would do it alone, right-clicking the wireless icon (lower right corner) and selecting "Repair".
What seems to work is both pushing the button and clicking on "Repair" (or disable and enable the network adapter in Device Manager). But I have to do it every time. Any suggestion on what needs to be changed in the settings and where, to avoid this problem every time I turn on the wireless modem?
Sounds like something is up with the Windows' utility's ability to create profiles for you. Profiles store which network you want to connect to, the encryption scheme, password, and rules about connecting to the network. If your wireless device has a utility you can use instead I would highly recommend it above the Windows utility.

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
