If I remember correctly, there are a few threads relating to the wifi problem here on LQ and one has the solution; do a search (and read through the whole thread before trying anything).

Not sure what the problem with the other one is.

They are indeed loaded with Linpus lite; you can try to install Ubuntu Netbook Remix and other distros (Linux versions) tailored to netbooks. I advise to do so anyway as I have my doubts about security updates with Linpus. I think there is a list in the netbook and laptop section here on LQ.

I got a year warranty when I bought mine (locally). Sounds to me like IJT does not want to honor the warranty; you deal with them, not with Acer (in my opinion).
