How to turn on wireless on Acer Aspire 4520 laptop


Look for a switch for the wireless or a function key that has the wireless icon, the function keys are usually labeled F1,F2, etc and they have icons on top of them, to activate the wireless one, just press ALT and the key together, you should see the wireless light come on.

Wireless capability won't turn on


Make sure you Press and Hold the FN function key then hit the F2 key.

Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look on both sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

Some laptops might have a wireless button instead of a wireless switch located above the keyboard or on the front or sides.

How do I activate the wireless function?


Does the laptop have wireless capability? Is there a wireless card inside the laptop?

If so, look on either side and at the front of the laptop for a Switch that turns the wireless on. Once you have the wireless switch on there are keystrokes that you can use to toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it or it will have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))).

No wireless capability


If your model does not have wireless capability, even if you had a switch on the machine, if there is no internal wireless card you can't make this wireless. My suggestion would be to purchase a PCMCIA or USB wireless card that you can load to your system to make this wireless capable.
