Hi,

try downloading the latest driver for the device, from the manufacturers website.
There are different wireless modem cards, in different laptops.
Try This:- go to MyComputer/Control Panel/System/Device manager. if you have any yellow exclamation marks by any of the devices, then they are not functioning correctly. either re-install the driver. Or uninstall reboot the computer, when the hardware wizard detects the device, you will get options to search/ re-install driver et,c.

thankyou for using Fixya.

Mike @ compurepair.

If it is three days old and no wifi you may not want to read this...;-]

There is a off on switch for the wifi either in front or along the side of the case. By default it is off. The wifi will show installed and working but won;t do anything. The hard part is finding that stupid switch. Followed by pretending you knew it was the problem all along. I'm chuckling at this as everyone myself included has done this. If it is anything other than the switch on a 3 day old laptop I'd put in in the box and return it.

it's the switch ;-]

Unable to get on internet wirelessly says no ip address


Check your firewall settings, and take it somewhere to a public wireless connection to see if it picks up the signal. IF your running say XP, go to start; run; type in CMD and hit enter. At the prompt, type in the following..

ipconfig /release then hit enter.

they type in the following....

ipconfig /renew then hit enter.

Check it then by typing in the following

ipconfig /all

See if it picks up an IP.
Also make sure your wireless is turned on and set properly. Especially if its a DELL Laptop. There are numerous settings in the BIOS for them

My Acer Extensa 5220 just blinks the power green light when switched on and goes off immediately.? Can anybody assist?


Try reseating memory modules.

Try taking out all parts like Hard drive, memory, wireless card. Does it do anything? IF it beeps, then put the memeory back in and try again.

Reseat all of them. Then try. Then if you have two memory sticks try one at a time in different slots. If nothing changes.. probably a bad motherboard or processor. (motherboard is more likely)

you may try:
1) check a wireless switch is on, and wireless light is on on your laptop, if not on go next
2) go bios check wireless setting is enable. if 2 not fixed go next
3) go windows check wireless driver that easy to see at right down bar show a icon of wireless. and then check control panel system and go hardwire management network adapter, you can find the wireless card status. if all above normall
4) recommend reinstall your windows.

Wireless switch


Although the wireless switch on your Acer does turn on/off your wireless card, you will also need to make sure that your operating system (Windows) has the wireless card enabled.

Do the following:
  1. Go to Control Panel (Start -> Control Panel)
  2. Double-click Network Connections
  3. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection / WLAN (you can tell it is disabled if the icon is greyed)

  4. Click on "Enable" (if you see Disable, your network is already enabled)
You should check the bottom-right-hand area of your screen (in the menu bar) for your wireless icon. If this is not appearing, you'll have to go into Network Connections again and do the following:
  1. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection (your wireless network adapter)
  2. Select Properties
  3. Click the checkbox that says "Show icon in notification area when connected"

  4. Now click on the Wireless Networks tab (at the top of this dialogue box)
  5. Scan for a network and connect to it.

Wireless lan problems


Do you also have a Function Key combination for turning on the wireless? Look for an aerial symbol on one of the Fx keys in a different colour?

e.g. on some laptops you need to press the Fn key and the F2 key at the same time to turn wireless on and off. On your laptop it may be a different key?

Also, check system tray in bottom right for a wireless enable/disable icon.

Also look in Control Panel for a wireless utility.

Did you try reading the manual about how to enable wireless?
