I have an Acer Aspire, manufacturing date 09/09. model 5534. I got it new a year ago and have had no problems until recently and it has had antivirus software. My internet connection is never able to connect anymore. I have taken it to libraries, school, and other people's houses and succesfully connected to their internet BEFORE the mishap and one time I took it my sister's apartment, connected to her internet, returned home and have not been able to connect since. The weird thing is that my computer says that I am connected to my home internet and when I troubleshoot it reads "you are currently connected to the internet." When loading the internet, from explorer it seems to take time to load my three personalized homepages and for second I seem to get a glimpse of them and then it reads, "internet explorer cannot display the page." The icons for the tab of each of my homepages, like AOL, are still there. My provider is comcast and I have been through connecting and reconnecting changing the internet options and settings and rechecking them and even connecting it directly from an ethernet cable to the router. The same thing happens each time so it is determined to be a computer issue. Are there any other suggestions or possible solutions to this problem? It is also not a switch or button on the computer that I can find to connect. I would really appreciate any help .
