Go to Start/Settings/Network Connections. When the window opens right click on the Wireless Network Icon and select Properties. In XP there should be a check box to allow display of notification when connected. If some other OS, hold the right button down on the Icon and drag it to the task bar. It should drop an icon for showing the status.
Before doing all of this, is there an arrow to the left of the icons? If so, click on it see if the Icon is simply hidden.

I don't know how to switch wireless on, on my netbook. There is no visible switch, and when I try to view wireless networks it doesn't see any of the available networks.


As i know, on acer netbook you have to switch on your wireless by pressing Fn key with one of the f keys, look from an antena icon on this key or go to control panel open network connections and right click on wireless connection and click enable.

Hi - I have an Acer Aspire One netbook & Acer Game problem


You can check the basic system requirement for the game and then check whether your laptop meets the requirement or not.
If your system meets the requirement then you can try to uninstall the game and then reinstall it.
This should help you.

Wifi connectin problem


is your wireless router set to broadcast itself?
you should be able to double-click the small, single computer icon in the lower right corner and have at least one wireless network (yours) to connect to. once you click it to connect, it may require a key sequence, if it is set up for it (passcode).Also, try clicking "Start", right-click "Computer", choose "Properties", "hardware" tab, and "Device Manager". Check to see if your wireless network card has a driver problem (yellow exclamation point". Can you access the network with your netbook connected to the router via a cable? If you can, and have internet access, go to the Acer Support site and download the latest wireless card drivers and install them. see if this helps. Good luck!

Acer Aspire On Netbook - lost wireless connectivity completely


Relax.. check all your drivers in device manager:

Vista- type device manager at startup
XP- right-click my computer -> hardware -> device manager

Make sure all the drivers is ok with no question marks or errors, if it does, reinstall your drivers from your driver CD.

If this is Vista the icon in the task bar at the bottom needs to be right clicked and left click "connect to network". Also make sure the wireless switch is on.
