So, the problem is that it won't connect to the router?

Is the wireless on? Notebooks generally have a wireless button on them. See this thread for some ideas:

If your friend used the wireless capabilities, the drivers and utilities must already be installed.

There is probably an Acer wireless utility in the start menu, as well as Windows' own network utilities in Start > Programs > Accessories > Communications. I'd try the New Connection Wizard first, then the Wireless Network Wizard.

It is also possible that you may need to enter the router setup and add the new computer, but lets see what happens with the other options first.
