I think that it is nothing to worry about ..probably it is just the network card driver ..either being automatically updated by the windows and it is not the right one ...or you uninstalled the driver by mistake ...
My advice ..if you have the original disk with the drivers insert the network (LAN card ) driver ..and reinstall it ...or case you know that you didn't do anything ..and this appeared suddenly ..than you have to make a system an earlier date when you know for sure that you had the connection in oreder...this will roll back the driver to the initial one ..
if you do not want to complicate ,or you think you will not manage ..and do not have the driver disk either ...than here is the link for the drivers for your machine ...
cause you did not specified the operation system in use..I will link you to the support site ..and let you choose the operation system ..after which have to pick the LAN driver from the list and download and install it on the machine ..
n here select the operation system and you will have all the drivers that your machine uses..
If after that it still not working ..than it is an issue of settings in the LAN card driver fact if you have a static IP from the sure that you inserted the numbers correctly ...just double click the 2 monitors in the tray system on task-bar..and than click properties.....and choose tcp/ip protocol...and after case...let to choose an IP automatically if you connect to a modem or do not have a static IP address..or choose use the following IP addresses..and insert the numbers from the provider with accuracy ..and it has to work ..
There is another case...when you used to have another computer connected..and it is a static IP address from the provider...and in this case it may be the MAC address from the new machine that needs either to be cloned to match the last one ..either call the provider and communicate to them the new MAC address from the new LAN card ..
GOOD luck and let me know what you manage to do ...

It is a minor problem. Try to uninstall the browser you are using then install it again. :)

Does it connect to the router or network? what happens when you open Internet Explorer? What kind of messages are you getting? Just saying won't connect to the internet could be a lot or reasons because getting a connection requires a number of things to be working.

Have inherited Acer Aspire one netbook. It says that it is now wireless connected but when i press browser nothing happens. Should this have something like internet explorer like my normal computer.

The Acer Aspire One comes with an edition of Windows 7 pre-installed. If that is the current operating system that it has now, then you should have Internet Explorer; it comes with every recent edition of Windows, and is very difficult to uninstall. To see if you have Internet Explorer (with Windows 7), open windows explorer and navigate to: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\" If you do not see "Program Files (x86)", then look for just "Program Files". There should be an application called "iexplore.exe" Double click on that, and see if it opens.

Can't connect to internet

We can try to isolate whether it's a problem with IE by having you download and install Mozilla Firefox and seeing if it allows you to browse the web.

You may want to check your connection settings in Internet Explorer - Tools + Internet Options + Connections. If you had any dialup settings or anything in there previously you should disable them. The other thing you can try is running the network setup wizard and telling the machine that you connect directly thru a network hub.

ON internet options window:

>> If you have internet explorer version 6, go to programs on top and select "Reset Web settings".
