Wireless Adapter not working under Vista

I have performed a clean install of Windows Vista Business on my Acer 5044 WLMi. Everything works ok apart from the wireless adapter. The driver is loaded correctly and working however the radio button does not light up and there is no software facility to enable it. I have downloaded and installed all of the necessary vista updates from the Acer website to no avail. The wireless adapter refuses to initialise and detect any networks. Fortunately I took a back up of the XP installation and when this is restored the wireless adapter works fine. The Laptop is an Acer Aspire 5044 WLMi (Couldn't find it in your pick list!!) Any ideas?? I have the same problem with my acer travelmate 2480 running vista home basic. I have to use the NIC to get get internet because the wireless is so flaky

Is the radio turned off? There should be a button or Fn button combination that allows you to turn your radio on and off. Try that.

    Have you tried using the eNet Management software to troubleshoot it? Try that. The software looked simplistic on the web but helpful.

Try to check on the device manager if the wireless adapter and the ethernet adapters were installed properly. If it appears with a questionmark, uninstall it and try reinstalling it without the ethernet cable connected.

If you are using Vista system, after installing the adapters, go to the network connections and just click on tcp/ip then click on properties. Exit from the window by clicking ok until all windows will be closed for the network connections. Reboot your pc and try if you can obtain a connection.

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.
