I have just bought a Acer Laptop I cannot connect to the Internet wirelessly.  I was told that there were  problems with centrino and the Orange livebox.  There is an excellent signal but it will not connect.  Anyone else having these problems?

Are you trying to connect to your own WiFi router, or somebody elses?
Routers normally have security features to stop just anybody using them.

Hi, I am having exactly the same problem. I also have an Acer laptop woth Centrino and have an excellent signal but cannot connect. i think it might be something do do with the wrong encryption (64bit instead of 128 bit) but this doesn't really mean much to me, if you have sorted the problem or know what this means any advice would be helpful.
