You obviously got access to the internet somehow in order to post this question. Unless you can get to the ACER website and download the drivers, you are not going to get satisfaction. Here is the link to the ACER driver support site. Enter your model and choose your OS. Download the drivers to a USB stick and transfer them to your PC.
This is going to sound odd, but i you 'slam' the I key down, does it work occasionally? Somtimes this is all it takes.. otherwise you will probably need to have the keyboard cleaned or replaced.. however, in the meantime, you can always connect an external USB keyboard to your laptop and use it instead of the laptop keyboard.
depending on how good you are, you could try debugging or trying to find why the exe file isnt running. best solution usually is to get rid and re install it, or just get rid and let windows do things. ive turned mine off cos its lets just say, less than recommendable.
control panel then ad or remove hardware for XP or programs and features for Vista. remove it. if you do wish to continue using the program it can be re downloaded from the acer site free of charge. nice and easy exe install package. i would say that there isnt really much point in using it unless you go to a great amount of different networks regulary
try updating the driver for the wireless card or uninstalling it then reinstall it what version of windows?? vista has a problem with wireless routers loosing connection randomly because of the broadcast flag in the registry ... if you have vista might be worth looking into if the driver isnt it
what type of program are you using? check the properties or references of the programs that you are using. you may need to configure it in accordance with your home network setup. your firewall (software or router/hardware) may also be a cause. check your firewall settings and enter the port number being used by the program. make sure that the firewall allows your program to run and connect to the internet.
