Windows 7: Acer Aspire One D255E wireless network problem

I tried almost every possible drivers for the netbook's wireless internet connection one after another without uninstalling the previous if it didn't work lol. As for what type of firewall / security the netbook has, I'm positive that either Windows 7's default firewall / security are in used or that of BitDefender 2012's. Prior to BitDefender 2012 being installed, it already has problems accessing wireless internet connections though it used to work on some other wireless connections.

Is it not working anymore or not connecting to other Wi-Fi connections?

From your own wireless network please these:

Change the wireless channel to 1, 6 or 11. See if you're able to connect, if not remove the network encryption from the router, just a test to see if your computer is able to connect. If you're able to connect, try a WPA security, apply the same setting the computer then try connecting.

Post an update please.

I'm not sure either what causes it, but apparently most people who own the same model of netbook have the same problem.

Perhaps the next step is buy a new wireless network adapter.

You mean the router itself? I haven't tried your previous suggestion regarding the problem, I'll post an update on how that goes though. .
