Re: Wireless connection???
Run a decent operating system :)
But seriously you are adding an extra layer of abstraction and network infrastructure for the acer laptop to go through vs what the toshiba has to get through. I'm also guessing that the ICS that windows does isn't that fast or flash. Ideally get yourself a wireless router (most also do wired networks) it should only cost about $140 max (thats Dick Smith pricing). Then your acer laptop hits the router via wireless directly which talks to the adsl modem, and the toshiba laptop goes via a wire to the router and then adsl modem.
I'd recommend this. Also means you don't have to have two laptops on just when you want one to work.

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
