If your trying to get on the internet with a wireless connection.and running WINDOWS, .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)
this is a link to a troubleshooting flow-chart

If still wont connect..let me know at what step 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.

    On the laptop it shows the light as orange, when I push the Fn and F2 it shuts it on and off but doesn't change the connecting, Says connections are available and my connection shows excellent, but not connecting.

    You have to VIEW the Wireless conections and choose the one you want manually and then enter your ssid (if set-up for one)

I just used recovery disk to restore back to factory setting for acer aspire 7741Z. Now it won't recognize my wireless router


To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Where do I find Acer Aspire One netbook #A0532h service/repair manual?


1) Free Service Manual,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

Go to the first line, click on the blue One, after Aspire One.

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name (One), it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.

2) Youtube,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xKSpW3q0GY

3) http://www.insidemylaptop.com/take-apart-acer-aspire-one-netbook/

NOT the A0532h granted, but the pictorial guide may help I feel.

4) http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-screen-from-acer-aspire-one-netbook/

Now, may I ask what's going on? What are you trying to repair?

Post back in a Comment.

Belkin router not giving signal to linksys adapter HELP!!!!!


I dont think belkin has a stable driver for win.7 at this time. I have a belkin n router with a belkin adapter and had no luck.
Some people have had some success using a Vista driver.
You could go to www.bioticaindia.com and download a win 7 driver there. They show a 48% success rate.
