HOLDING the power button down will usually shut it down, but you really need to shut down by Windows.

Reply if you need more help.

Hope this helps.

Wheres the wireless switch on an acer espire m1201 pc?


Hi

Desktop PCs do not generally have wireless switches. These are usually only to be found on laptops, netbooks and some nettops.

It is unusual for mid-specification desktop PCs like yours to have a built-in wireless function.

So the answer is that there is no wireless switch.

You can make a desktop PC wireless enabled by adding either an internal PCI wireless card or plugging in an external USB Wireless Adapter (far simpler). With these devices and their drivers and software installed, you will see a wireless icon bottom right of screen. Right click on this icon > View Available Networks/Connect to a Network to find your router's signal > once you connect to your wireless router by entering the SSID (router name) and Network Key (encrypted access code), the PC will be able access the internet wirelessly.

Once it is wireless enabled. whenever you turn the PC on, you just wait for the wireless icon to indicate you are connected to the internet (usually a blue globe).

There will never be a need for a wireless switch.

I hope this helps.

M trying to activate my wireless connection for my acer x1200 do I need a disk or can I press certain buttons to activate the wireless


You should be able to see there might be an antenna on the back of your computer which is part of the wireless network adaptor. I checked the specification of your computer and did not see wireless card included. You may need to buy one internal wireless card or a USB wireless card to use wireless feature. You will need to install the driver and configure it to use a wireless access point on some of the wireless cards. Usually you can turn on wireless by using network connection or using the connect to item in the start menu if you are using Windows Vista.

If you have not installed the USB adapter driver and configured the wireless network , you need to do that to connect to the internet. Once you have cd and installed the driver , you need to enter Wireless access key or SID to set the adapter to connect .

Hi there,
It sounds like you do not have the connection set up yet.
Try using the start button (bottom left hand corner of your screen)
Then click connect to, then click show all connections which will open the network connections panel.
Then you can configure the wireless setting (If you have one) if not, then try creating a new connection and follow the wizard, Hope this helps you, Chris

What mini pci WIFI card can I use in my Acer Aspire L310?


this laptop has 1 mini card slot for optional wireless LAN (selected models) just choose any decent aftermarket wireless g card and it will work , givin it's drivers are installed correctly and the laptop is set to autoconfigure the wi-fi. Most are set like this by default.
you also have a port for rj-45 , so having a 6ft network cable would be handy if you were sonewhere like a hotel which had free internet but no wireless.

I bought an Acer notebook (Aspire 9920) back in December. My ISP manual says that the 'Wireless Network Key' should be on the base of the notebook on a coloured label. This doesn't appear to be the case....


A wireless network key is used to join to a wireless network. Wireless networks are created by routers and/or access points. In order to obtain the key so you can log onto the network, you must have access to the router's settings or be given the key by someone who can access the router. To access the router, you type in it's IP address into your internet browser. If it is password protected, you will need that as well. Once in the router settings, you can set many configuration options, including the wireless network password or passphrase and encryption type.

Again, if you are joining to a wireless network, the KEY is determined by the router, not the laptop. This is how multiple wireless devices are allowed onto the same network: they all use the same key.
