My notebook shows it is connected to the internet, but when I try the browser nothing happens, can anyone please help, as I`m a total novice? Many thanks for reading.

he means to type thos commands in a terminal and paste the output into your next post in [code] tages. in addition, give us the results of these so someone can start to diagnose your problem:
Code:
echo uname: && uname -a -m -p && echo lspci: && lspci && echo lsusb: && lsusb && echo lsmod: && lsmod && echo ifconfig: && ifconfig && echo ifconfig -a: && ifconfig -a && echo iwconfig: && iwconfig && echo resolv.conf: && cat /etc/resolv.conf && echo route: && route -n

Well...

What operating system is running on the Acer?
How are you connected i.e ethernet cable, wireless, USB 3G modem etc.
Is this a home LAN and is there some type of home router MODEM etc?

What do you mean by nothing happens? Does any sort of error message display when your to go to google.com ex.
