I've been through forum after forum trying all the "solutions". Acer's site has been no help at all, since its an older unit. I see many newer units having the same issue though! It works fine when connected to the 10/100 ethernet, but the wifi, which is connected with excellent signal strength shows "local only" under access. Can anybody tell me what is up with ACER notebooks? I've never seen this before, and need to resolve it for my Aunt. Her building has Wi-Fi and she can't enjoy it because of this.
Oh yeah, the wireless worked fine before she moved into the new apartment.
