The Aspire 4715 comes with Wireless OPTIONAL. Your system obviously wasn't bought with a pre-installed wirelss card. If you want to go wireless, you will need to buy a wireless card/adaptor seperately.

Why don't i have a wireless network adapter showing in my device manager?


Hi, Try reseating the wireless card then restart the computer. If that doesnt work manually reinstall the driver, you should be able to find the drivers on the acer site.
It could be the card itself may need to be replaced. If you know someone with a usb wireless adapter borrow it, install and see what happens.
Since it's not showing in the device manager but shows it is disabled makes me think it's a driver/hardware issue.

I can't get the network controller drivers to install correctly. I have installed the drivers for my acer aspire 5742g. The FN+F3 can't activate the wireless as a result


Have you installed the correct driver? The 5742G could be installed with an Atheros or a Broadcom wireless card, and these use different drivers.

You can either visually check which make of card is installed in your laptop, or try both drivers and see if either one works.

The following links will initiate a download:

Atheros:

Broadcom:

Failing that, perhaps your wireless card has physically failed in some way and needs replacing.

I can´t install my network controller --> wlan .


no problem. That's right. On the website you can find several LAN drvers, because they don't always mount the same adapters, even if it is the same model of computer.

Networking Problem


By local network do you mean using a wired connection or a wireless connection? I gather you mean with a wire.

The following link is to a PDF page listing the lan drivers from acer for an Aspire 3680 --

Drivers Link

The second and third entries on the list both appear to be wireless adapter drivers for built-in hardware (atheros or broadcom). Are you sure the driver you have loaded is the correct driver?

To determine which if the two may be suitable for your machine try the following

Click Start and right mouse click My Computer and select properties

Select the general tab and click on device manager

find your wireless adapter probably preceded by a yellow question mark (?)

double click on the wireless adapter entry

get the name at the top of the general tab and
the click the details tab and record the
device instance id value

Report what you found back here in a comment.

Hopefully the name will contain atheros or broadcom of not I hope I can lookup the device instance id string to determine the manufacturer of the wireless adapter.
