Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook
There are many reasons why wireless doesn’t work but lets look at it step by step
How it works is that there’s a card inside your laptop which detects networks “wireless only” that are in your house and near you like neighbours.
The most common mistake is “the button” there is bound to be a button either
On the side, the rear, the front of the laptop or even near the keyboard it usually has
A dot with signal lines that button switch on and off the wireless device so make sure its on and then wait 10 second for the signal to appear.
There is no button? Right then there’s a keyboard shortcut to switch it on and off
You must first press and hold the “fn” button or the function button then find the wireless key which is either “f8” or “f4” it varies from model to another but it always has the wireless logo on it and it is always one of the f keys.
Didn’t help? It could be you’re running multiple utilities to run your wireless, you either have to use windows utility which is normaly in your task bar but if that’s not working then another utility is using it, so find in your programs list “wireless utility” or “belkin utility” which usually does the same.
Didn’t help? Its getting more serious, makesure your driver is installed for the wireless, if you go to the device manager and then to the network area and there makesure your wireless drvice is enabled “no red cross on it” or else if you cant find a wireless device in there then it means your wireless card is faulty and need an expert looking at it.
It is good practice to re-install the wireless driver to fix most issues.

Does the Acer have a built in wireless LAN card?
If so are the drivers installed?
Go to the Control Panel, then Network Connections to verify the wireless connection etc..
If you don't has a wireless card you will need to get a PCMCIA wireless card and install the drivers and configure it to suit your wireless router configuration.
