I have an Acer Aspire 4520 laptop that I can't connect to my wireless router. I have a Netgear N300 Wireless Router, wnr 2000 v3 model and a motorola dsl modem. All conncections are correct. I'm able to operate my pc, (Wired), my cell phone, (Wireless), my PS3 (Wireless) and anybody elses divice on my system with no problem, however I'm unable to connect my laptop to my system Wireless. I'm lost. When I open my Netgear router on my PC, click on attached devices, it shows my laptop as being connected (wireless), however it's not connected to the internet. It appears to me that the modem is not recognizing the signal from hte router. It seems like a router to modem problem. Also, FYI, my laptop connects to other wifi's everywhere with no problem. Please help me. Thanks

Do you have any kind of encryption turned on? IE WPA,WPA2.. If so, have you tried to turn it off and see if your laptop will connect?

Alright, have you tried an ipconfig /release and /renew to see if it'll fetch a new ip address from dhcp? Also, have you tried to set a static IP address instead of using dhcp?

Just to add to chrisd87's suggestions, how do you connect on wireless and what is the error message when browser is launched? Have you tried removing the previous wireless network profile in manage wireless networks and then connecting manually again?

Fixed the problem. Computer wasn't syncing with router, so I bought a new modem/router combo, and everything works great.
