take a look on the front edge ..it has 2 buttons ..and the one in the left is for to enable the Bluetooth and the one in the right ..near the headphones is for to enable and disable the wireless card ..keep it pressed for a few sec and when the wireless led it changes color it is enabled..(turn green or blue ).. If this button do not work ..check the card in device manager ..To get there ..click right on computer icon ..and select properties..and in the window opened select device manager (if you using xp ..select hardware and after that device manager ) In the device manager , take a look under the network cards...The wireless card need to be present and not having any ask signs or yellow marks ..If it does it is either not installed proper or it has a driver issue..and in thsi case you have to download the driver for it ..and reinstall it ...restart and enable the card either in the device manager by click right and enable ..or from the button ..or in the network folder ..(for this open the network folder and in the left click for change card settings ..and select the card and click right and enable ).. this is the support site in case you need the driver .. http://support.acer.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=77

The wireless networking feature on the notebook can be enabled
by moving the switch that is located on the front of the notebook to the
right. Once the switch has been moved the wireless networking icon will
appear on the screen indicating that it has been enabled. The switch will reset back to its original position once it has been
moved, this does not indicate that the wireless has been turned off.
