Having problems with your Acer Extensa 5420-5687 Notebook ?

Cannot get connected to my wireless router

\015 I understand the 5420 has an integrated wireless so that I do not need a netword card (I tried the network card out of the other laptop and nothing happened so I have to assume this is correct). However, I cannot seem to get it to hook up to my wireless router that my PC and my other Acer laptop are on. I cannot access the internet at all. I have tried everything within my limited knowledge base, but it is far beyond my ability to figure out. I'm betting its something simple, but I bought this from a relative and she can't find the book at this time. Any suggestions?\015

I bought a wireless router so that I could get my comcast cable to pick up on my laptop around the house.

I got internet on my desktop, but it not on my laptop!

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
