1. Make sure you're actually connecting to your own network. Many times, the wizard will automatically connect to another network that might not be yours.

2. Is your network password-protected? If so, check the settings and make sure it's typed in.

3. Check a box that says "Let Windows Automatically Detect Settings" or something similar to that. I'm stuck in my friend's car right now, so I can't check much out on my phone.

4. If you're running XP, there's a patch on the Microsoft website that'll fix this problem.

What OS are you running? And which netbook do you have? Sometimes all you need is a little tweak in the settings.

OS - Operating System. You're running XP, so that's answered.



1. Try resetting the router and restarting/resetting the actual wireless connection from the laptop. Eee PCs have a hotkey to disable wireless/bluetooth.

2. Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections (Tab) > LAN Settings
Should be an "Automatically Detect Settings" box. Is it checked? If it isn't, check it and restart the wireless.

3. Click Start, then Run. Type in "cmd" and wait for the command prompt to pop up. Once up, type in the following:

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

Then restart the wireless, restart the laptop, and try again.

Let me know if none of these work out.

Oh, and to download a patch, either use another computer and transfer it via a USB flash drive, or connect the Netbook to the router with an ethernet cable.

i tried all of those and none of them worked. i tried to download the patch but it said i had a newer version so it was not needed and wouldnt let me download it.

Go onto the Acer Laptop and Click Start, then Run. Type in "cmd" and wait for the command prompt to pop up. Once up, type in ipconfig and then post the results here and then do the excact same to the netbook and then post the results here.

Well Specifically The Ethernet (if this is how the laptops connect) or the wireless (if this is how the laptop connects).
