Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
In Device Manager, do you have any devices under the "Other / Unknown" category? If you don't, then restart the computer, go into the BIOS setup, and look through the menus to see if there is an option to disable the network adapter. If you see the option, and it is enabled, then try disabling it, save changes, and restart, then go back into the BIOS setup again, and enable the adapter. If the adapter is functioning, it should show up in device manager as the actual card, or as an unknown device.
If you do see an unkown entry in dev mgr, then try reinstalling the driver (get from Acer's website for your particular model and operating system).
If you do not see it, then the network adapter likely has faulted. Since it is likely built into the motherboard, you will need to add another adapter, either internal if you have a slot open, or external (USB,etc). Disable in the BIOS setup if given the option, otherwise consult user manual for how to disable using a jumper on the motherboard.
