The other reviewer was right; the wireless was faulty on mine as well. Looking at the Acer support page, there seems to be three different wireless devices that are used. When I gave up and called Acer Support about it they wanted to determine if it was a software or a hardware issue. After I told them that I had already deleted and reinstalled the driver and that the wireless device was the Atheros, the guy promptly came back and said that it was a hardware problem and I could send it in for repair or return it to Walmart. I'm going return it and give a replacement a shot if they still have one. I really like this laptop otherwise. It could use some more RAM, but I knew that going in. I was using it for light gaming. Psychonauts really looked great on it, and so did Myst Online Uru Live, although I never joined a crowd of people while on this machine, so I'm not sure how it would handle that. Free Realms could get a bit laggy when there was lots of people and movement going on, but it was a lot better than my old laptop.
