Question about Computers & Internet
Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look onboth sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on. Sometimes the wireless switch might be a button to press. Look above the keyboard or sides for a wireless button to press.
Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can togglethe wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN functionkey located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit willhave the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a towerwith the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will displayWireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.
Maybe the wireless card needs to be reseated.
Turn the computer off, remove the power cord, remove the cover from the bottom of the laptop where the wireless card is housed. Sometimes the wireless card might be under the keyboard. Once you find the wireless card, remove the 2 antennas (black and white cables) but remember where they go. Then remove the wifi card from the slot (it might be secured by a screw). Wait 30 seconds then put it all back together and reboot and see if it detects wireless.
You can also try downloading and reinstalling the wireless drivers.
Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "AcerSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the Network drivers for the wireless.

It might be that your adapter isn't operating at a high enough power. To fix this Click start>right click my computer>properties>hardware>device manager>double click your wireless adapter. In the advanced tab set the power management and transmit power all the way up (but be warned: KILLS battery life). Or your adapter isn't set to the right mode (like if your access point or whatever is 802.11g and the adapter's settings are set to 802.11b only).

Settings must have changed and not not changed back, set your friends settings as default settings. He may have accidently reset something etc.
A quick solution is to go to
System Restore and reset it back a day before you gave it to your friend.
go to START > PROGRAMS >
ACCESSORIES > SYSTEM TOOLS and you'll find SYSTEM RESTORE there. Click on it and find the option to set your Notebook to an EARLIER TIME. After selecting that from the list find a date BEFORE YOU LOANDED THE NOTEBOOK TO YOUR FRIEND and left click on it and follow the instructions and your COmputer will restore the system to that earlier date (it could be 1 day before you loaned it). You will not lose any files etc.
After it goes through a cycle of rebooting etc and it resets to the earlier date, your Network should work as it did before you loaned it to your friend.
If you have trouble finding SYSTEM RESTORE go to HELP and look for a link there.
Good Luck !

Most Acers use an IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does and your router is using WPA or WPA2 (TKIP or AES) security then you'll need to update the driver by searching for it manually using the Custom button (Hardware) in Windows update (instead of Express). This driver is not part of XP service pack 2 or 3. In my experience if you don't update to the newest common form of home wireless security (WPA2 AES) then the older formats seem to become unreliable in the way you describe

Try turning off your wireless router and modem for 2 minutes and then turn them back on. Wait another 2 minutes for them to settle down and try connecting to the internet again.
If this does not work you may have to reinstall the drivers for the wireless card in your laptop.
