First, go to Windows security settings. I recently had a client with this exact problem, and it was her Windows firewall blocking the wireless adapter from "seeing" anything. If necessary, turn the firewall completely off to test.

Secondly, if that doesn't fix it, remove/uninstall the Wireless adapter completely from device manager. Reboot, let Windows attempt to reinstall the driver. If asked, point it to the driver files you've already installed. Reboot, and that should fix you up.

Let me know if this helps :)

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

    I recently updated to Windows 7 on my Acer Aspire 5500, everythinh works but my Wlan is not recognised it does not appear in my network devices and all the drivers I have downloaded do nothing? Any ideas?


    Check in the BIOS to make sure it is enabled (press F2 repeatedly during startup), and make sure that the switch (mechanical) for it is on. (Page 10 of this manual; you may want to download and save it)(http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/manuals/acer/0000/userguides/AS3600%205500-ENG-OLM_0609.pdf)

    The fact that Windows 7 does not see it is indicative that it is either powered off in the BIOS or shut off mechanically.
    Good luck; if you are still having problems, repost and we'll see what we can do.

    Lost signal on acer aspire 6530 lap top, dont know if my daughter has pressed a wrong button or switch ?


    There is a little satellite icon next to the always blue (when turned on) skip to next (song) and stop (square) touch buttons. Put your finger on the satellite icon for a few seconds, then move off, a green message should come up on the bottom of your screen saying "Wireless LAN enabled", if it says "Wireless LAN disabled" then there is another problem with your connection.
    When the wireless is enabled check that you're connected to the wireless network. Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center (in Vista) you should be able to see:
    "Access Local and Internet"

    If it's not connected to the internet try resetting your wireless router, if that doesn't work, check you have the correct network password. Right click the two little PC screens (icon) in the bottom left, in the new window right-click your network and go to properties. In the new window, "Security" tab check the settings and type in the correct network security key (password) again. Hopefully you will have a record fo the network security key or your problem will have already been fixed before you get to this point. :)

    Have you disabled the wireless card?
    Check to see if you have a switch/button that toggles your wireless devices. It might also be a keyboard combination like Fn+F9 or Alt+F?
