Hi!
There are many possible reasons why you can't connect to the internet and answering these questions might help narrow down your problem.
  1. Are you trying to connect to the internet wirelessly or with a wire?
  2. If you are connecting wirelessly, are you connected to any wireless network or did you enter the encryption key correctly?
  3. If you can't detect any wireless network then check if the wireless function of your laptop is enabled or not. That can be found as a slide switch at the side of your g550.
  4. What operating system are you using? Windows Vista, XP?
I hope you will find this helpful.
Thanks!

I have an acer aspire one laptop that will not connect to internet thru wireless connection. System shows that wireless connection strength is excellent but internet explorer cannot display webpage. ...


1.- Try to find the wireless card switch (or button). Look the wireless led indicator, must be on.
You should surf if the led is on.

2.- If not works, go to device manager and look to your wireless device and turn the switch on and
off again. Look if the device is accepted without any sign. If the device get any sign then you
have problem with your wireless driver. If no sign. Open My Computer and then open networks
or my network places, and try to access to any other computer you have.

3.- If the device is ok in device manager and the led indicator is on and you can access other
computer thru network places, then open Internet explorer, go to tools, then go to internet
options, then go to connections and there click on Lan settings. In the proxy section uncheck
the box. Restart your Internet Explorer and it must surf now.

Good Luck and remember to rate my answer.

URL Filter Configuration


Ok, sounds to me like the security settings on your laptop for the wireless network card are configured in HIGH safety mode. The easiest way to resolve this is to:

1. goto control panel (start - settings - control panel)
2. open network connections
3. right click and select PROPERTIES on your wireless network connection
4. click on tcp ip (interent properties) double click it
5. goto advanced button (lower right hand side)
6. options tab
6. goto properties button for ip filter
7 uncheck (if checked) Enable ip filtering

that should fix ya up.

Do you have your computer connected to your wifi network and your ethernet cable at the same time? Try having it connected to only one and see if that changes anything (ie, keep the wireless on and unplug the cable, or keep the cable plugged in and disable the wireless - if your laptop does not have a button/switch to turn off the wireless, you can do so by going to your network connections area from the control panel, right clicking on the wireless internet icon, and selecting disable.)
