  1. Did you install the drivers for your NIC card after reinstalling? The icon in the system tray can be turned on by: Start, Control Panel, Network Connections, then right-click "Local Area Connection" icon, select "Properties", then place a check mark in both radio buttons "Show Icon..." and "Notify me..." then click "OK" button.
  2. Most probably after the reformat, the required drivers weren't installed.
    Here's the link to Acer Support
    Select your netbook model and you should be able to find the right drivers for LAN.

    Hope this helps

  3. sometimes it’s easier to use the Acer driver installation disc that came with your computer rather than trying to hunt down each driver individually. However, if you don't have your Acer driver disc, your second option is to look for it from the Acer website.
