G'day, I was on the internet last night then disconnected. Forgot to do something, went to connect again but a redial message came up & started to count down. I have restarted my computer several times & tried to connect several times but with no success. Show's error 797. Any idea?

The firewall is blocking the connection. Turn off all computers. Turn off router and modem. In this order, turn them all back on. First modem, wait one minute. Next router, wait one minute. Last, all computers. You should have connection now.
You first need to establish that you have internet available to your router via cable modem, dsl, etc. Unless your modem is also your wireless router. Take your ethernet connection or cable that resembles a large phone cable and plug in your Acer One directly into the router. You should then be able to get internet. If not, you may have a problem with your internet in general and need to contact your Internet Service Provider. Also if possible try another pc, see if it has internet. Lastly try reinstalling wireless diver in device manager.
How exactly are you trying to connect? via modem, if that is the case the "disconnected" warning or notice you are seeing is probably the LAN line. That is the other port that looks like a telephone jack, but is a little bigger.
If you can get online and there is no problem except that annoying notice you can; go to control panel, double click 'network connections', right click the 'Local Area Connection' next to it should read - disconnected, after right click - select 'disable'.
Now you won't get that message or that box with the red x in the corner anymore. If you ever do need to connect through that port in the future, you will have to go back to control panel, follow same steps and then select - 'enable'.
Sounds like you definitely have something that is intermittently not making proper contact. I'd suggest checking all of the cable connectors first. Disconnect each one and reseat it. If that doesn't do the trick, you may have a broken land pattern on the motherboard. That usually means a motherboard replacement. \R-
