Now that you are connected to internet have a look at windows update and see if you have a driver update to install for your Acer Notify 802.11b/g/Draft-N adapter.

I will do that. I have downloaded all the updates for the laptop. Firewall is disables as well as the antivirus. These are the first things I did. LIke I said I can see my network, as well as all the neoighbors around me networks (all secured) mine is open.

You've asked for newtork details. What would you like to see - some screen shots of the network configuration from the adapter tab?

I would check the router settings as well.

To do that, Find your default Gateway IP address.
and type that address into your Browser, it is usually 192.168.0.1

Check your routers wireless settings..
Do you have other computers connecting to your wireless, if so are they working?

Hope this Helps...

Some have suggested that ip6 can cause problems you can try unticking that and while there see if auto connect is selected in ip4. Give this a try if you have not already.
