Taking for granted you have a wireless adapter enabled (checkable via your Control Panel > Hardware) ... it all depends on your version of windows. I suggest you type 'Setup Wireless' on your "help & support" screen and follow the instructions there.

I have an acer aspire 5920G laptop.My wireless network adapter stopped working,and a message showing No DeviceI, tried to fix the problem but to no avail.My wireless broadband was working good before...

1st check to make sure that the wireless adapter shows up in the decice manager. then check your network adapters to verify the system still sees the wireless network adapter.


The acer manual talks about the ways to turn it off in the acer software as well as by the button page 32 talks about windows mobility centre and has a function to turn off wireless
page 44shows buttons down the left hand side - one has a symbol like a satellite dish - this enables/disables the wireless adapter If none of these work then likeley the wireless adapter in the laptop has died and if you want an internal wireless you will have to have it replaced or go to a external usb type of adapter.

Wireless Adapter not working under Vista

Is the radio turned off? There should be a button or Fn button combination that allows you to turn your radio on and off. Try that.

Wireless not working when ac adapter plugged in

It looks like you've changed the settings to turn off the wireless when AC adapter is preset. Try going into Acer Power Management and make sure Wireless Lan is selected on your Power Plan.

Wireless Adapter not working under Vista

when you say the radio button does not light up, are you refering to the light on the front of the notebook?, if so you can turn the wireless on and off by the little slider switch next to the light.
