Question about PC Laptops
I am working on a computer with a WirelessLAN PRISM3 IEEE802.11b WM168 installed. I recently reinstalled Windows - prior to this reinstall the wireless connection worked fine. Now, it is only picking up certain connections. My home is close to a school so I can get their wireless signal - this computer will detect it and work fine. However, the wireless in my home is not detected by the computer (Airlink 101 802.11G wireless router tried without security as well as with wep). There are several other laptops in the home that all detect my home connection without any problems. Please help!

Tips for a great answer:
Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.
If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.
Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.
Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.
Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.
Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.
Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.
Restart the computer.
The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.
hope this helps
