Hi

It depends if your laptop came equiped with wi-fi... it is a option on the 3630. If it did the button is located on the front.. right next to your audio ports..

Also make sure that you have the drivers installed for the wireless adapter. depending on the operating system you are running the os might install it automatically. i will post the links to the user manual and the drivers page. download the user manual.. it will help you if you run into anymore trouble.

Laptop model number R50e how can i use wifi


What brand of Latop acer , toshiba , compaq , dell ,????
Do you have a wireless modem ?

Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon.
This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look (((·)))
Make sure its pressed on.

One of the features that makes laptop computers desirable is their ability to connect to Wi-Fi networks, thus allowing people who are on the go to be able to check email, browse the web or update social networking status any time they are in a Wi-Fi hot spot.
Fortunately, enabling Wi-Fi on a laptop is simple to do.
Only basic Internet and computer expertise is needed to connect your laptop to a wireless network.

Click on the "Start" menu on the bottom left-hand side of your desktop.
Then select "Control Panel."
When the "Control Panel" window opens, choose "Network and Internet."
Click on the "Connect to a Network" link that is found underneath the "Network and Sharing Center" heading.
A new window will open.
Choose "All" from the drop-down menu and click the "Refresh" button on the right side of the window.
A list of available Wi-Fi networks will appear in the window.
Click on the Wi-Fi network you want to enable on your computer.
Then click on "Connect."
You have now enabled Wi-Fi on your laptop.
Click on your web browser of choice to browse the Internet.

Make sure that bluetooth and wifi drivers are installed.
Go to BIOS and check for any options related to wireless and Fn key settings (Like enable/ disable etc).

When Wi-fi button is turned on, LED indicates its status.

Also refer to user manual that can be downloaded from: -

Hope this helps you! let me know if any clarification is required

I m nt able to locate my wifi switch on my laptop acer aspire4720z. plz help


Hello,

Your wi-fi switch is located to the top most buttons on your laptop which is the "easy-launch buttons". The first one is WLAN(your wi-fi), second is INTERNET, third EMAIL, fourth BLUETOOTH, and fifth ARCADE.

You may need to setup your wi-fi by pressing the Empowering Key (triangle button inscribed with letter "e").

Hope this helps.
