Okay, I just tried to get online with my laptop when I got the "no wireless networks detected". It was working fine a day ago and then it suddenly stopped. I just configured my router to a static ip so I thought that might have something to do with it. But, I typed in the correct ip address and all that junk and it still didn't connect. I even completely reset my router to see if that helpped, but no luck. This is wierd because I usually can see a few different networks from around my apartment complex, but now It will not detect any networks. Does anyone have any ideas? I would really appreciate any help.

I can't seem to find much information about the error messege you get, with only 3 results... The only useful thread I've found was this, where the solution for the problem was using the System Restore feature of Windows XP.

its funny because i'm using an Acer as well. I don't think the system restore will help becuase it really just stopped finding networks more or less overnight. I didn't change any settings to the laptop at all. So, you don't think it would have anything to do with the static IP I set up?

The static IP is most probably the reason, becasue that's what have changed in your configuration. Nonetheless, you said your laptop can't seem to find any other wireless networks in the area as well. Hence, the only possible solution I can suggest is the System Restore. Besides that, I've no idea of what could be the problem, sorry...

WoW, I'm dumb! A light on the front that I thought was superficial was actually a wireless switch. Works now, thanks for the help.
