Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an Acer Aspire 6930 laptop and I do not know how to enable the wireless network. It was working fine several days ago and now it will not pick up the router. I think I have everything set up correctly, but I don't know where to turn on the wireless capability on the laptop. I would appreciate your help. Thanks. Tony

On a 6930 I believe the button is above the keyboard, embedded in the speakers. Look for a button with a radio telescope/satellite dish icon and make sure it is lit/flashing.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Wheres the wireless switch on an acer espire m1201 pc?


Hi

Desktop PCs do not generally have wireless switches. These are usually only to be found on laptops, netbooks and some nettops.

It is unusual for mid-specification desktop PCs like yours to have a built-in wireless function.

So the answer is that there is no wireless switch.

You can make a desktop PC wireless enabled by adding either an internal PCI wireless card or plugging in an external USB Wireless Adapter (far simpler). With these devices and their drivers and software installed, you will see a wireless icon bottom right of screen. Right click on this icon > View Available Networks/Connect to a Network to find your router's signal > once you connect to your wireless router by entering the SSID (router name) and Network Key (encrypted access code), the PC will be able access the internet wirelessly.

Once it is wireless enabled. whenever you turn the PC on, you just wait for the wireless icon to indicate you are connected to the internet (usually a blue globe).

There will never be a need for a wireless switch.

I hope this helps.

Just bought acer Z5700 but i have to plug the cable into the router. i thought this product was wi fi what am i doing wrong ?


You probably never enabled the wireless card ..Go to network folder and start the wireless connection ..In there select to connect wireless and teh card will enable the wireless and will show available networks after ..
Also check in the device manager to see if the wireless card is proper installed ..if it is not ..just download and install the drivers from support site ..or install them from the recovery partition or from the disk if you have one .
to get into device manager .click right on computer icon ..select properties than device manager ..In there look for wifi card ..click right on it and select enable ..If it is in yellow it means it has no driver ..and try to click right on it and select update driver ..
Also see that it may have a button for the wireless to be enabled on it ..Im not sure but it may be something similar to laptops..just a button needed to be pressed in order to enable the wireless card without any other intervention ..If the card is enabled it will appear in the tray from task bar (right area ) where all active programs appear ..Right click on it ...and select to show networks ..and select yours and connect ..

Cannot enable wireless on my Acer Aspire 5612WLMi


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?

Hi there,

Please make sure that in the bois your wireless connection is set to enabled, and the other thing you need to do is to make sure that you know where the toggle swich is on. otherwise check on your windows bar on the right hand side to see the network connections.

Check that for and than chat to me and I will talk you through the rest if need be.

The battle: Acer Vs. Verizon FiOS


Verizon needs to apply a firmware update for the Atheros wireless adapter in your notebook. I work for Acer and I end up having to tell people this all day long. If you take this to a wireless router that is not from verizon you will have no problems with your connection. Maybe if enough Fios customers complain they will provide a firmware update for this.
