Use the shortcut Windows Key + X from your desktop to access the windows mobility center. This will allow you to enable wireless networking and allow you to connect to your wireless router.

If you have any more questions or this solution doesn't work, please let me know and I will further investigate.

Wear is the wireless button on ac er aspire 5738z?


Good day,

The wireless switch or button on your notebook will allow you to connect to a wireless network, or when not connected, save battery power by turning off the wireless network adapter.
The wireless switch or button can be identified by having the following icon on or next to it:
