Cannot enable wireless on my Acer Aspire 5612WLMi

Hi there, I am having a problem enabling my wireless modem on my Acer Aspire 5612WLMi laptop. The sliding button on the front does not appear to be working and anything else I have tried doesn't either. I am running Windows XP. Can you please help?

There should be a switch/button on the laptop which enables the wireless device. I have the acer 3692 wlmi and the switch is on the front near to the microphone socket. Hope this helps.

First, does the modem show up in the device manager (without an exclamation mark or an "x". In other words, does the computer see the card and is it not reporting any problems.
Second, do you see the wireless connection when you go into My Network Places and Network Connections?
Third, does the wireless connection icon appear in the system tray?

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

Hi,

You may need to enable your Wireless adapter. You can do this by going into Control Panel then network connections. You should see a "Wireless LAN" icon. If you right click on it you can choose enable and then you can browse available wireless networks and connect.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi there,
First of all you need to see two things in the system 1. Drivers 2. Wireless button Light
1. If the drivers are installed you will see wireless icon in the taskbar bilalseham.jpg
if its not available you can check two things 1. Drivers are installed properly 2. Either its enable or disable
You will see the drivers by right clicking my computer>Manage> Device Manager Right click my Network Places> Properties> wireless network connection right click and select Enable
2. Wireless Button Light Infront of the laptop where you see the Audio Jacks and You see two white buttons (Right one is Wireless Enable/Disable Button) when its Disabled you will not see any light When Enabled you will see Orange light Blinking or stable. Press once and it should get enabled. and if you have installed Launch Manager you will also see notification on screen that WIRELESS ENABLED OR WIRELESS DISABLED
Follow above steps and you will be able to see the wireless connection,
Drivers Link: Wireless LAN Driver ( Atheros) Wireless LAN Driver (Broadcom)
If you require more assistance feel free to reply to this post

Please help me get my wireless settin


  1. I assume that you mean you cannot see your wireless network in the "Available Networks" list?
  2. Yes, there will be a switch on the laptop to enable/disable wireless.
  3. Is your router set to broadcast SSID? If it isn't then you won't see it in the list of available networks.
