i don't have a default gateway address on my acer aspire one laptop and my ip address is weird

Default gateway is your "router" or if you are connected directly to a cable/adsl modem it's your ISP's router... to not have one means your network adaptor is not comunicating to either.

check your physical connections
verify link light / activity
Device Manager for conflics and errors (specifically under Network Adaptors) re-install / update your network driver
Check your network activity in the Network and Sharing Center - verify network connection is on
Disable all firewall software

Verify IP address is appropriate and is set to recive an IP address automatically (

Reset / Rebuild TCP/IP and Winsock library.
( - TCP/IP reset
( - Winsock reset

System Restore to a last known time when your network worked corectly
