By the above description Im not able to see what your exact issue is except that you cant get on the net. If you turned the power off on all of your equipment and restarted it and it didn't work then try running System Restore.

To start System Restore, click Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.

Below you will find screenshots of the program.

After clicking the above menu options to start System Restore choose "Restore my computer to an earlier time" and click Next.

On the next screen, in section one, choose the most recent bolded date before the issue started. Then in section two, look for the System Checkpoint or the latest entry for that date and select it then click Next.

On the Confirm Restore Point Selection screen make sure that you selected the point you want and click next.

After that your computer will restart and verify that the machine has been restored. Next, see if you have corrected the issue.

If not, let me know what equipment you have connectedand what error you receive then Ill try to give more specific instructions.

Please remember to rate the information that you have received.

Hi there, Mine is a wifi problem.. at home or at a couple of other places I've tried, my Aspire One connects no probs. At work, it constantly tries 'Acquiring Network Address', and on going...

Plug LAN cables or turn ON Wifi.
Enter Run command or type cmd.
on the command prompt screen ( black it is ) type:
ipconfig /release
next type:
ipconfig /renew

type exit
NOTE: if the problems still remains,which means the router use a STATIC ip eg.
( CONFIG INTERNET PROTOCOL TCP/IP = ip address : subnet mask : default gateway : )

Hi there, the only reason it doesn't work it's because the wireless key is not correct. It usually shows limited connectivity when the wireless key is not correct. Even just a letter upper or lower case will cause the problem. Since you are connected with the other computer go under the Router settings and double check the wireless key. Check what kind of encryption the router is using, make sure your wireless adapter can support it.

Two things to try...

First: In your system tray (lower right corner of windows) right click in your wireless network icon and select "repair". After it finishes, try your connection again. (If you can't find the icon in the system tray, go to control panel, network connections. Right click on the wireless network, and select "repair".)

Second: Try to connect to your router directly by typing it's IP address into the address bar of your browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox).
*****If you don't know the IP address, you can find it by opening a command prompt window (click "start", "run", then type "cmd" and press "ok") In the command box, type "ipconfig /all" (all of these commands I have told you are without the quotes.) In the information that is returned, look for the Default Gateway. Usually it is something like but yours may be different. This is the IP address of your router.*****
If you cannot connect to the router through your browser, then the router is the problem...Unplug it from the power for about thirty seconds, then plug it back in. Wait for a couple of minutes while it gets up and running again, then try your internet again. (Whenever I have repaired this problem in the past, I have also unplugged the cable modem which forces the modem to query for a new IP address for itself. If you do this, plug the cable modem (or DSL modem) in first, then plug in the power to the router.
If you CAN connect to the router with your browser, you should see the administrative options. Search through the tabs and options to find an option to release and renew it's IP address.
I hope that I didn't overwhelm you with too much information here, any questions, just post them here and I will help you.

No ip address

when you say ip/config you mean wifi properties and internet protocol properties right ?
if so select obtain ip address auto and select obtain dns auto.
if thats not what you mean...goto control panel network on ur network connection the list at left select change settings for this network properties scroll to internet protocol..double click to obtain ip auto and obtain dns auto.
there are other ways to fill in fields but you need relevant info..
there are programs which can show u ip's but most require a special driver.
incidently if you choose ip and dns auto you will not see ip address but when connecting to network you will see aquiring ip address please wait.
if for some reason you still cant connect go to a place where you know have free internet access and connect there then net connection will be configured

I have an i touch and i cant go to the internet

If the IP address is starts with 169.xx.xx.xx then it means that the router (its called the DHCP Dynamic Host Protocol) is not working. It is suppose to give you an IP address automatically. So it is a hardware problem with your router, specifically the DHCP. It needs to be replaced.
