Acer Aspire One - Lost Internet connection


I have an Acer Aspire One Netbook that has lost connection with the Internet. On clicking the Browser button I get a message saying "Your wired device is now connected" - but nothing happens. It was working fine up till about a week ago. A substituted computer will work OK from the same output from the Router/ Modem through the same cable. Ideas, please?

If you have access to another CD for doing the download, try booting to a Live CD such as Slax or Knoppix and seeing if you can connect with the wired connection.

If you can't, it would likely seem to be a hardware problem, not a software one.
