Acer Laptop Wireless problems

  megansdad 16:28 28 Dec 2009

Having trouble getting new Acer aspire laptop (Vista) connected to wireless internet. If I remove all the encription it works Ok, but obviously this leaves me open to abuse. The service provider is AOL (no help from their helpline) with their Netgear modem. The laptop has worked elsewhere on a friends modem. When I try and connect it to my Modem it says that it is connected to the router but not the Internet.

if you can connect to your wireless network with the security turned on, access the router and check to see that you router isnt blocking web access on the IP address that your router's DNS server has given you.
