Question about Computers & Internet
There are several reasons as to why your IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n Wireless NIC may not be able to connect to a wireless network:
1. Antenna Orientation and distance from the wireless access point: If the wireless NIC is a PCMCIA card or a PCI card on the motherboard, make sure that it's antennae are configured in such a way that there's maximum reception.See the product manual for more details.
2. Inbuilt antennas for laptops: If the IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi product is inbuilt into a laptop and there is no signal strength indicated on the device, your antennas may be loosely connected or out of line.Read the product assembly manual for more details on how to correct the problem, e.g id it's an Acer laptop, read more on the Acer's invilink signal boost technology.
3.External interference: If you are using your WiFi-equipped device near a microwave-transmitter device, eg a microwave oven, relocate the device elsewhere to eliminate the interference, as microwaves are in the same frequency spectrum as IEEE 802.11 a/b/g WiFi radio transmission standards, and interference is very likely.
4.Wrong encryption standard selected for the wireless network: Please ensure that the encryption standard selected on your WiFi configuration matches the same that's supported on the network(Read more on wireless network encryption standards such as WPA,etc).Please note that you cannot connect to an encrypted network without the correct key.
5.Optimized settings: For best connectivity, ensure that your WiFi card is configured to automatically raise it's roaming aggressiveness when connected to an infrastructure network with multiple access points.You may also optionally enable QoS tagging and packet offload options if supported.
6. Driver updates: It's always a good idea to update the card drivers from the manufacturer's website.Note that if your product is an OEM-based product, you need to get the OEM-based drivers for the product as their drivers may have more options built for the WiFi adapter.
I hope these solutions suggested above for you will work.

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-Do check it out
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
