Question about Acer Computers & Internet
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?
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?

Tips for a great answer:
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
