If your trying to get on the internet with a wireless connection.and running WINDOWS,(many problems with LINUX) .and I am assuming you DO have a wireless router all set up and configured to broadcast the signal (not hidden) ....first we have to determine if the problem is at the router or at the laptop AND at what point its getting stuck ... so first try this

try resetting the router (disconnect the power to it for a few minutes) next --be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the netbook---next---go to CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS--right click oin your wifi card and choose properties--highlight INTERNET PROTOCOL and choose properties and be sure "OPTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" is checked--Does the laptop "SEE" the router?
You will need your SSID to logon to the router(internet)
follow this is a link to a troubleshooting flow-chart

If you continue to have problem..indicate at what point in the flowchart it is getting stuck

If this was helpful, please indicate so, if not -comment back so we can dig further to resolve this.

Hello,
The router is designed in such a that it is compatible with all the computers. The best way to get rid of this issue is log into the router interface and change the wireless channel to suit your requirement.
1) To begin with.. Open internet explorer on a computer connected to the router and delete everything from the address bar and type http://192.168.2.1 and hit enter. Now you will be in the Belkin Router setup. It will ask for a login password when you click on anything.. Leave the password field blank and click on submit. 2) Towards the left side under wireless click on "Channel and SSID". Now you see wireless channel change it to different channel and click on "OK / Save". Now check the signal strength in your Acer computer. If its still the same try different channel and check.
Hope this helped.

Hi there and Merry Christmas,

Are you connecting to a router? Yes, if it is wireless, you'll need to make sure that the router has internet connectivity. if other computers connected to the same router can connect with the internet then there's something wrong with your computer's network configuration. You can copy the network setting from a working computer connected to the same router such as the gateway IP address and proxy settings and use the same settings on your computer..

use the console to check for internet connectivity. Sometimes, virus may infiltrate browser internet connection so better check using RUN>CMD and type "ping yahoo.com"

Let me know if this helps.. I do hope it does.

I can't get internet connection even though it says my connection strength is "excellent."


The netbook is working fine. The WiFi connection or SPID may require you to login as in it is a protected signal. The "Excellent" means that you are receiving an excellent signal from the router. What you want is internet access which is upstream of that. Try a different SPID or connection.
