    Is your WiFi turned on ? Are you seeing available networks to join ? What happens when you try joining ? Does it let you? Did it work previously? Did you install any new updates or changed settings recently ? You need to elaborate a bit more on the problem in order to get the right help.

    Yes wifi is turned on , I know it is something with my drivers , I can not see any available networks. I can't connect to the Internet at all and I believe I have to install a new wireless driver but I am not quite sure how to do this with connecting to the Internet on it

    If you know its a driver you have to install in order to fix the problem I suggest you try to hard wire your Internet connection to see if that works to update the drivers in order for the WiFi to work.

    Double check your Device Manager to see if everything is functioning properly if there are any errors.

    Check this out:

    Aspire V3-551 Drivers

    I'm assuming your missing the Wireless Lan Driver - try downloading the latest version and do the update.

    Also check Device Manager to see what's going on as well.

    Did you try connecting with Ethernet directly through a modem? Can any other computer get to the internet wirelessly or via wire given your setup?

    I suggest doing what znod said. Connect your computer to the modem via ethernet then download the latest updates, and it would probably download the correct wireless drivers.
