Acer Aspire 3680 Wireless Not Working

I rebooted my computer to basic Vista and now I can't turn my wireless antenna on. I keep flipping the switch to turn it on and it won't. Do you have any idea how to turn it back on?

    What do you mean rebooted back to Vista? Did you restore, is that what you mean?

The Aspire 3680's wireless adapter is not compatable with vista basic. You will need to go to acers website and download the newest patch driver.

Acer Aspire 3680-2762 cannot find the built-in wireless Lan card


The driver for your wireless card should be HERE.

If that doesn't enable it, you can go to the Acer drivers site and download the driver for your system HERE.

You can Select
"Notebook, Ultrabook" --> "Aspire" --> "Aspire 3680"

Then select your operating system from the pop-up and select the Drivers tab.

The second note is download Vista SP1. Vista has had alot of problems maintaining network connections. Miscrsoft said they fixed it in SP1.

Wireless


Make sure your wireless receiver is turned on, usually it's just a switch or a button that has an image of an antenna with signal lines.

Once you're sure, right click on the wireless signal icon down in the lower right hand portion of your computer desktop and right click.

Select view available wireless networks, then choose yours from the list, click connect and enter the necessary information about your network's security.

If you don't see your network name then there is another problem.

for Aspire 3680, it already have antena for wireless.
that antena, 1 side is connected to wireless card, it's in the back of laptop, you need to open it (open the cover on the back).
the other side is inside the lcd panel, if you open the lcd cover, the antena is close to lcd latch.
