I followed the steps as you laided them out but it still did not work,
The ethernet card now as an exclamation mark(!) over the question mark(?)
In the ethernet controller properties the following:
General: device status - device not configured correctly (code 1)
Drivers : no drivers have been loaded for this device
Resource settings: device not using any resources because of problem

Re: re. aspire 1360 wireless problem
Hi there, strange thing happen to me today - 13/04/2008 got a laptop with this same problem ..
The ethernet card was showing an exclamation mark(!) over the question mark(?) for an hp f700 laptop .. but this was overcome by installing nvida chipset drivers which contained the network card driver package .... hence i am thinking along the same lines....

Acording to the Manual http://www.manualslib.com/manual/1156/Acer-Aspire-1360-Series.html?page=7#manual
that is a 2004 unit the best way is to go to the Control Panel, click Device Manager, rt click the wifi adapter and update the drivers on line. (takes awhile) Microsoft will auto install the correct driver. If you cannot see the wifi in your device mgr. Purch a USB wifi adapter from Tigerdirect an install that. Should be able to fix for less that $25. If it still has Windows XP on this PC you should not be on the internet with it, it is totally vulnerable to viruses & hacking.
You will need to open up your network connections click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a Red
X or a yellow Exclamation or Question mark !?
you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled.
If you are trying to connect through a modem/router the driver should have come with a disc provided by your ISP internet service provider or your motherboard disc
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to network adapters could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X right click install drivers
You only need to do the following if you cant install the driver
Make sure you Ethernet/internet is enabled in biosRestart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to
press to enter set up (BIOS) usually the Delete or F2 key press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys scroll to intergrated peripherals.
Look for SiS On Chip Pci Device press enter scroll to SiS 10/100m press ENTER make sure its enabled
Most new laptops are equipped with all the components necessary to go online wirelessly to account for the increasing popularity of Wi-Fi Internet.
If you find that you are not able to connect to any wireless networks on a laptop, take a few basic troubleshooting steps on your own before having the laptop serviced.
In all likelihood, you will be able to restore your laptop's wireless functionality and be browsing Wi-Fi Internet in no time.
Enable the wireless card by pressing the radio button, typically located near the top of the keyboard.
Press the radio button until a light illuminates indicating that your wireless card has been enabled and is ready to go online wirelessly.
Test your connectivity once again; if there is still no wireless access, it is time to check for a possible issue with your wireless card.
Navigate to the computer's device manager by opening the "Start" menu and either clicking "Device Manager" from the "Control Panel" window or right-clicking "My Computer," clicking "Properties," and choosing "Device Manager" from the "Hardware" tab, depending on what version of operating system you use.
Look for the wireless card in the Device Manager by clicking the "+" next to "Network Adapters."
If you see any item labeled "Wireless Card" or "Wireless Controller," check to see if it has a "?," "X," "!" placed over the name; if it does, you will need to update the software drivers for the wireless card. Contact the manufacturer of the computer for assistance.
Attempt to connect a wireless network other than your home network. Make sure you connect to a wireless network that you are legally allowed to use, such as a free public Wi-Fi hotspot, and that you are not illegally connecting to someone else's wireless network.
If you can connect to other Wi-Fi networks, the problem is likely isolated to your home network and you will need to troubleshoot that.
If you are still can't connect to any Wi-Fi networks after following the steps above, you may need to have the laptop serviced or have its wireless card replaced.
You don't need to connect via ethernet. In your laptop set the IP address to 192.168.0.2. subnet 255.255.255.0
This will probably temporarily disconnect you from your internet but you can reset the IP address back later. It might be a good idea to write your current settings down for later.
Open your browser and enter dlinkap or 192.168.0.50
You will connect to the Dlink AP

Hey, you're almost there. The connection between the no-wireless PC over ethernet to the DAP-1360 Repeater is fine. The reason it can't connect to your LAN or the internet, however, is that the repeater isn't actually repeating your Ofir network, it is instead creating it's own, completely isolated wireless network (Ofir_EXT).
The D-Link setup and documentation is confusing, and doesn't have proper instructions for the repeater setup.
Rerun the setup wizard, setup as a repeater, then select manual configuration method.
Now, enter the wireless network name of your the network you want to extend (in this case, Ofir). Then enter the same security and password etc. for Ofir in the following fields, just like you were connecting to Ofir from a smartphone or laptop. Once that is finished, you should be up and running. If things worked, you should NOT see any new wireless network. There should be Ofir and just Ofir. Wireless repeaters work invisibly, you'll still connect to the same network like you always did, but now it will have much improved range thanks to the DAP-1360. The computer entherneted to it should be networked on the wireless LAN and have internet access after this as well.
Good luck, I hope my instructions were clear. Wifi networking is easy, it's understanding all the manufacturers less-than-intuitive software that makes it hard.
1.- check if your wireless device is working
2.- If not you have to turn it on
3.- Select your wireless network (control panel>>network connections>>wireless networks)
4.- Connect to the network (is the network is pass protected you will prompt for a password)
If above doesn't help, please describe better your issue
hi there, for your first question ..yes u are uninstalling from device manager. and the second.. the wireless card not showing was taken into account..cause the ethernet controller that has the yellow mark is your wireless card..it just does not have the drivers...hence the name ethanet controller....
try this link for the card listed in your post :- http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=7172
you should have ACER Empower installed, so check that the wireless adapter is enabled, or press F2 on start up and look in the bios for the onboard wireless adapter and see if its enabled.
If non of the above make any difference look in control panel>system>device manager>hardwre tab and look down the list for an exclamation mark, if you find one then the driver for the wireless is not installed, hence showing no device.
If that does not work either then there is a possibilty that the wireless card is faulty.
