The behaviour you mention above (sees the network but fails to connect) sounds to me like a mis-match on your security settings.

Did you reinstall the driver from the cd or there web site ?

acer has 2 sets of drivers for the Atheros wireless card on there site
http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/data/7117/documents/ZR3_Atheros_XB63_5.1.1.9_XP_WHQL.zip

and

http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/data/7117/documents/AS5050_WLAN_Atheros.zip


or you might need the broadcom driver as your laptop might have that card installed

http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/data/7117/documents/AS5050_WLAN_Broadcom.zip


it might not connect also because your wireless has a wep key protecting the network ?


does the device have a ! make next to in device manager ?

First check out that the laptop is fully charged.also shut down your laptop and then restart your laptop again and check out.
also try uninstalling the wire less driver and then reinstall it again.

Need a wireless card for acer Aspire 3050 where can I find one & how much


I would recommend getting one like the one in the link below. It's super small, very fast, extremely cheap $10, Installs right in a usb port, and if your operating system is windows XP or later it should even auto install the drivers for you.

Hey guys i recently had to reinstall windows onto my acer apire 5315. and everything went ok ,but all my empowering technology is gone and i dont no how to install it again and also my wireless internet...


I suggest going to the Acer Aspire website, downloading the drivers and transferring them over to your laptop using a USB drive. Once you get the network drivers installed, you can begin re-acquiring all the software that you lost due to your reinstall.

and the windows vista driver is right below that on the same page:

Wireless Adapter not working under Vista


when you say the radio button does not light up, are you refering to the light on the front of the notebook?, if so you can turn the wireless on and off by the little slider switch next to the light.
