Acer One D260 netbook
Intel Atom N450 processor, 1.66ghz / 512k cache
windows 7 os
Broadcom network adaptor
This PC is about 3 years old, and has worked happily on various routers we have had at home, we are currently SKy customers, and up until a month ago it started having wifi connection issues, the wife never mentioned this until recently. I ran a full virus check, and also superantispyware. Nothing of any note after their operation, and still no connection.
About a month ago I updated the software in the router, and amended auto channel select, and fixed it at channel 11. Im not sure whether this could effect the Acer as the other PCs / Apple products in the house have had no issues, and work fine on the router. The router did accept a software update.
The Acer does not even see my Sky router, it sees others in the street. It connects on the LAN plugged into the router, and connects to the net with no issues.
Yesterday I decided to do a full system restore on the Acer, it had slowed down a little bit, and plus I was hoping the reset would fix the sky wifi issue. Everything was deleted and a full system restore was run,and it still it doesnt see my router.
I have downloaded all current drivers from the acer website, and installed them, without any success. The router has been reset, again with no luck.
It is sitting next to me with the battery off for 30 minutes, not sure if this acheives anything, but hey ho.
I have run out of ideas, so any help would be appreciated.
