Can't get Acer Aspire One on my house wireless net to share files

\015 Net has a desktop, a Dell laptop and now the Acer on it. The Desktop and Laptop share files and printer fine but I can't get the Acer in on the act. I have set up the Acer just like the Laptop (I think) but no go. Router is Linksys WRT310N. Running XP on all computers.\015

Answers :

I have the same problem except i cannot connect/browse the internet, however the netbook does detect wireless connections it just fails to connect to them. it previously used to connect to the internet at my friends boarding school and ever since the system admin at the school switched to 'sonar', or however its spelt, it hasnt worked since... ( and yes i have changed the proxy settings etc back to normal).
I believe you can fix this problem without having to lose your files and also without having to reinstall your operating system.
\015\012
\015\012In order to fix this issue you will need your windows XP cd.
\015\012
\015\012Place the Windows XP cd into the optical drive and restart your machine. You need to boot from your Windows XP CD and at the prompt, press "R" for repair to get inot the Windows Console.
\015\012
\015\012At that prompt, select 1 for your windows instalatin directory.
\015\012
\015\012type "FIXMBR" at the prompt and restart your machine.
\015\012
\015\012If this does not work, repeat the above process and instead of typing "FIXMBR", type "CHKDSK /R" and let it run to fix problems. It may take some time but once done, restart your machine and you should be back in action. Good luck
