NO wireless device

Hi,
my ACER laptop have started to tell me that there is "no wireless device", when I try to turn it on. I have checked in "device manager" ant it's not there. Is the device broken or loose? Where in the unit is this device located? Is it easy to find out if it is disconnected or broken?

Go an Acer site and download the NIC dirvers and make sure the wireless switch is moved to the on spot. The wireless switch should be on the side or back, marked on & off and a pic of a satlite or dish.

If your device can detect other acces point then, your wifi device is correctly installed. If not, os will tell your wifi have problem. If you try connect, and have problem with connection, it came from your acces point(wifi router expample). Maybe it have password that have not match with your pc. If that access point is yours, then you can try check the password for wifi using cable connection.

If that acces point(wifi router) is not yours(public), then you cant get the password unless you try hack using air-ng, backtrend using wifi device that can capture and monitor the network(wifi *** support a/b/g exmple) if it only support b/g, you cant get wep encryption password.


If it does not have password, and you try to connect, but it still problem, that mean, it have restrictly to MAC address in wifi router.

Is your Telstra/Bigpond ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router?
If the ADSL modem has a built-in wireless router and your laptop does not have a wireless card, then you have two options to connect your laptop to the ADSL wireless router/Internet -
1. Purchase a PCMCIA wireless adapter and insert it into the PCMCIA slot in your laptop. One of my favourites is made by Netgear.
or
2. Purchase a USB wireless adapter, the only disadvantage with this solution is, it uses a USB port and if your laptop has only one USB port. This is a problem if you need to connect other USB devices. Then you also need to purchase a 4 port USB hub to give you additional USB ports.

Finding key


Usually, the switch for the wireless connection on Acer laptops is located at the front edge, beside Bluetooth button or at the left side of your keyboard beside the Caps Lock key. Just look for a button or sliding switch that has a symbol or an icon that looks like a satellite dish.

You may download the manual of your Acer laptop on this link.
