Acer wireless switch

Hi did you have any joy in locating and re-enabling the wirelss switch on your acer in the end? My daughter's laptop has just suddenly stopped seeing the wireless connection, but what we cant figure out is how or why, our laptops are fine and connecting to the internet so that's not the problem, and we have hunted all over her laptop for a switch but to no avail. I am just hoping in desperation here that you have since discovered the where abouts of this elusive switch

Cannot the wireless internet setup

Hi kschmerer,

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.

Please post back if you have any questions or require further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

The wirelss enable/disable switch will not work, and is curently disabled, can i enable it another way (acer 5570-2067)

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.
5)Choose enable
That should do it.

Good Luck

most laptops come with a manual antenna switch...just look around the body of the laptop...if not then a hot key with the antenna symbol should be available.
