I just wanted to add that I tried the connection on a laptop with Mageia 
1 installed and it worked well on the same connection.

I also tried a USB wireless adapter on the Acer and it also did not do 
the internet, but the wireless adapter was still connected to the 
network. Strange.

Here is where I bought it with the specs:
Acer VX4618G-Ei3210W
