Reset router to factory defaults and start over with no security. Only enable security after all wireless is working. Step by step.

Do you have MAC filtering enabled on your wireless AP? If so, add the MAC of the Acer's wireless device so that it will be able to access your network. Also, check your APs DHCP settings. Do you have it set to allow a specific number of computers to receive an IP address from it? If so, increase the number to include the Acer. If you have encryption enabled on the AP, make sure that you configure the Acer's wireless device settings to match that of the AP. Let us know if this solves your issue.
