I am just hoping in desperation here that you have since discovered the where abouts of this elusive switch

On Acer laptops, wireless capability can be enabled by using a combination of keys on the keyboard. In most of the Acer laptops, there is also a dedicated wireless switch located on the top of the keyboard. The icon representing this dedicated switch can vary depending upon the model.

I understand that you are not able to setup the Wireless Network Connection in your Computer.
To fix this issue, please make sure that the Physical Wireless Switch on the Computer is turned ON and then try connecting the Computer to the Wirelss Network.
You can locate the Physical Wireless Switch on the front side of the Computer. Please move the switch toward right side to turn it ON.
Once the Physical Wireless Switch is turned ON, please try setting up the Wireless Network Connection.
If you are not able to to connect to Wireless Network Connection after switching on the Physical Wireless LAN Switch, try using the Wireless Switch Setting Utility.
To enable the Wireless Network Connection using the Wireless Device Switch Utility, please double-click the Wireless Device Switch icon on the right corner of the Taskbar. Then in the open Wireless Device Switch window, please click to check the box next to Enable 2.4Ghz Wireless LAN.
This should fix the issue.

1)Go to Start Menu
2)Choose Control Panel
3)Choose Network Adapters or Network and sharing center
4)Right click the wireless adapter (it should say disabled in grey letters beneath the adapter) Vista users will have to choose Manage network connections from the left hand menu before they will be able to see the network adapters.
That should do it.
