So can anyone possible point me the way where to get this bloody going again :) OH BTW MERRY CHRISTMAS

First things first, my Acer has a wee switch to enable/disable the WiFi connection. Could that switch be off...? (On my lappy, it's a small slide switch on the front of the near the catch and headphone sockets etc)

Next, is it the WiFi Network Adapter showing in Device Manager?

Do you keep getting nagged about WiFi networks available?

Are you 100% correct you're entering the correct pass properly...? You can confirm this by going to the Admin Page of your Router, and checking from there what your settings are.. (Copy it exactly as is.)

Does other wifi devices work OK? Have you tried turning off the router, and after few seconds, on again?
