Specs: Windows 7
Hey y'all,

So I jus recently picked up this acer aspire one for traveling. I arrived over here at a buddy's place and connected to his speed touch router no problem, however, the other day he asked me to disconnect because he was having trouble connecting.

Since then, I have not been able to connect, or even get to the authentication process. As soon it attempts it immediately stops and gives the error message cannot connect.

When I trouble shoot - it says its because the network is hidden and I have no access to the router itself because my buddy is out of town for a few weeks and its locked in his room.

I know the router isn't the issue - because my other friend can connect with his mac. I also know that my computers wireless hardware is not the issue - because I can connect to neighbors router - problem is that one isnt connected to the internet.

I've tried uninstalling the drivers, troubleshooting, recovering back to the day I bought it, changing my mac address, and even deleting the hardware completely and letting it reinstall.

So my next step was to download a replacement for the windows 7 wireless manager that works better..... any suggestions? or advice on my situation?

Many thanks,

the fact that could connect and can still connect to your neighbours router shows that both your hardware and windows software are working without issue.
it may be that you buddy has limited the number of connections, that he has set his router to mac address access,
get your friend who can access to;
1, disconnect, then see if you can connect.(maybe limited to 1 ip address access)
2, reboot the access point, if possible.log in via ip address
3, get your friend who can connect, to initiate iternet connection sharing so you can connect via his computer..

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....
