New computer will not wifi

I just purchased an acer 5315 with windows vista home premium.It is supposed to have their fantastic ACER eNet Management system with a preinstalled wifi. ACER Invlink 802.11 b/g wifi certified solution supporting Acer Signal up wireless technology. I cannot seem to connect anywhere. Is ther something I am supposed to do to register it or something. . It will work on the ethernet. Any help will do THX!

well after purcasinf an acer 3515 and spending a week talking for hrs with their support team, I was finially told to return it to the store. The wifi hardware would not work. The store exchanged it for another. No problem. I hope this new one works.. It is a nice little lap top.
