for the wireless network adaptor at the ACER.. at the TCP section. Set it to obtain an IP address automatically, and put in the correct DNS as supplied by your ISP...
Hi, I've an Acer Aspire 2930 (C2D T5800 @2Ghz, 3GB RAM, Vista Home Premium, Intel 5100 AGN)
When I connect to my wireless router, the network notification icon shows Local Only, but my phones and DSi connects fine to the Internet (via same wifi).
Then, I have to right click on the network icon, and then 'diagnose and repair', then there's a dialog box option "Automatically Get New IP Setting for *", then the Internet works fine for the laptop.
Is this normal that I have to do this (almost for) each reboot? It's not really breaking stuff but it's annoying.
