If that does not work, then you will probably need to reinstall the drivers for wireless.

What is the blue button for on my acer travelmate 3230


The blue button (on nearly all notebook computers) is a "Function" shift key. Since space is a concern on portable computers, it is appealing to have each key on the keyboard do "double duty" We are familiar with this, using the SHIFT key, to capitalize and to select the symbols above the numbers on the top of the keyboard (ex. SHIFT/8 is an *)
Similarly, there are blue images on some of the keys that can be accessed by pressing the Blue FUNCTION key along with that key (just like you would use a SHIFT key to select a capital letter). Sometimes, these icons can be a bit cryptic, so consult your manual or Google "Travelmate 3230 keyboard".

Hope this helps.

Enable wireless capability


Certain models of Acer desktop computers are designed with wireless capabilities.
These capabilities can be added to an Acer desktop system that does not connect wirelessly with either an internal or external wireless card, depending on the computer's configuration.
When the wireless connection is not working properly, you can troubleshoot the issue yourself.
The troubleshooting process eliminates the problems that may be preventing the Acer desktop computer from connecting wirelessly.

Check to see if any other computers at the same location are able to connect wirelessly.
The issue may reside with the wireless router or access point.
Power cycling the router or access point may resolve this issue.
Verify that the wireless adapter is enabled.
Click the "Start" button, then "Control Panel."
Click "Network and Sharing Center," then "Change Adapter Settings."
If the wireless adapter is disabled, right-click on it and select "Enable."
Connect to the proper wireless network.
The Acer may be attempting to the connect to the wrong wireless network, or it may have lost its connection to the correct network.
Click the wireless network icon in the task bar.
Click the proper wireless network, then click "Connect."
Enter the network password (or WEP key) if prompted.

Wheres the wireless switch on an acer espire m1201 pc?


Hi

Desktop PCs do not generally have wireless switches. These are usually only to be found on laptops, netbooks and some nettops.

It is unusual for mid-specification desktop PCs like yours to have a built-in wireless function.

So the answer is that there is no wireless switch.

You can make a desktop PC wireless enabled by adding either an internal PCI wireless card or plugging in an external USB Wireless Adapter (far simpler). With these devices and their drivers and software installed, you will see a wireless icon bottom right of screen. Right click on this icon > View Available Networks/Connect to a Network to find your router's signal > once you connect to your wireless router by entering the SSID (router name) and Network Key (encrypted access code), the PC will be able access the internet wirelessly.

Once it is wireless enabled. whenever you turn the PC on, you just wait for the wireless icon to indicate you are connected to the internet (usually a blue globe).

There will never be a need for a wireless switch.

I hope this helps.

I have a acer travelmate 3000 laptop and cant get my wireless to work, if i plug in a new wirless usb stick it works fine but i wont the internal wireless to work, does this mean my internal wireless card...


Odds are pretty good the wireless is not enabled.

If you look at page three item three of the manual, it shows the button/indicator on the front of the system to enable wireless.
