There is a slider switch at the front, next to the input connectors, slide it across and let go and it will tell you on screen it's enabled

I have an acer aspire 5552-5898 and i am unable to enable the wifi even after hitting FN+F3 to turn it on


From what I can find on your notebook it looks as though there may be a physical switch for your wireless as well. Be sure that this switch/button is turned on prior to using the Function F3 keys to turn on your wireless.

I have an aspire 6530 which suddenly will now not allow me to go online. It asks for wifi switch to be turned on but there is no switch on this laptop. Can anyone help?


Mike:
I would usually research this information on the acer.com website; however, their website is decidedly broken right now.
One thing you might check is whether or not there is a Fn key combination that you can press on the keyboard to switch-on the WiFi.
Look on the keyboard for a colored key labelled something like "Fn" and the press and hold that down while you press one of the other keys that has an antenna or radiating computer icon on it.
That should toggle the WiFi radio back on for you.
Sorry that I could not be more specific, but until Acer's web site comes back up again, this is the best that I can do.

I disabled the wireless connection by accident how do I enable it again


You probably disabled it by pressing these two keys.

Wifi is enabled/disabled only by pressing both the Fn + F2 keys. (Don't press the + key, just Fn and F2).

Good luck!!

Wan connection


In newer laptops, turning on the WAN (wifi) radio receiver is done via keyboard key combination.

Look closely at the function keys. Do you see any wifi radio icon printed in orange or any color that is not similar to the normal key color? In some model, a wifi icon (looks like a wave like ")))" is in F2. Now pressing FN+F2 turns the wifi ON. Press and hold down the FN key and press F2 (or the key where the wifi icon is printed) to turn on your WAN.

Where is the wireless switch on a Acer Aspire 5735


Usually, if there is no HARD SWITCH for wifi, there is an equivalent keyboard key combination to turn wifi radio receiver ON. Look at your laptop's Function Keys: F1, F2, ... F12. Among them there is an icon for WIFI, something that looks like an antenna with wave signals. Now press and hold the FN key and press that function key with the wifi icon. Example, if the wifi icon appears at F10, then press FN + F10 to turn your wifi ON or OFF.

Wirless connectivity problem


What qualifies you people to write responses? The switch for the 6930 is located just above the NumLock key. It actually looks like an LED indicator of a satellite dish, but it's not. It's the button for the WiFi enable/disable. Push it hard...
