I would first get a new Ethernet cable and try it. If that doesn't fix it, call your cable company and have them do a diagnostic from their end. They can tell if it is their equipment or not. It their modem is OK, and the Ethernet cable is OK, then your LAN (Ethernet) card is either going bad, or possibly not completely inserted in the socket. To check: turn off and unplug your PC. Take the side off, look where the Ethernet cable goes into your computer. If it is on the motherboard, you may want to get a LAN card and use it instead of the onboard. If the cable goes into a card plugged into one of the slots, make sure it is fully inserted. If it is, you may want to get a new card.

I am unable to connect with my wireless laptop

With an Ethernet cable, connect the "wired" port on your laptop to one of the "wired" ports on your router.

Access the router's built-in web-server, and run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", to configure your wireless network.

Call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) -- if they provided the 2WIRE modem to you, they can help you configure it.

Unidentified network which has limited connectivity

You're network card may be disabled, and that would be why you are unable to connect to yout network/the internet through your network card, to check this go to your network settings, right click on the "Local Area Connection" and if the option is there to "enable" then click it because your card has been disabled, if disable is there in stead then I'm stumped. with regards to "unidentified network" This usually comes up when someone has a wireless network created, but they have the settings made to not broadcast (show) the SSID (name) of the network. This is done for extra security, because in order for someone to connect to the wireless signal they need to know the type of encryption used, the key or passphrase for the encryption and on top of that the network name. Limited connectivity means that you are "connected" only in the sense that you can see the network connection, but you are unable to do anything with it.

Missing registry entries for qualcomm adapter on acer aspire one

Since it appears that you still have your wired connection you need to go here ->

to download the Qualcomm wireless driver software. You can then unzip and install the driver.
I would first go into Device Manager and uninstall the wireless driver if it exist to remove any leftover software. Tt should be under the network in Device Manager. If it is not there do not worry about it just install the new driver you downloaded.
