Question about Acer Aspire 6930-6771 Laptop
My wireless was working fine on my Aspire 6930. in the middle of a download, it stopped functioning, the orange light turned off, and now when i press the wifi on/off button, i get no response whatsoever. Anyone have an alternate way of turning the wireless on? or am i having a hardware issue?
Start Windows Mobility Centr from the Accessories program group in the Start menu..you will see if its connected or not connected on top right hand side of pop up screen. Just click to turn wireless on and off. Otherwise go to page 14 of the Generic User Guide for more infor.

I figured this out today. When your Acer 6930 gets low on power, it will automatically disable the wireless to conserve energy. However, when you plug it in again, it does not always enable the wireless. You can press the little button all day, and it will say something like wireless Lan enabled, but will NOT light up or work. Here's how I fixed that. You need to open Network Connections and find your wireless card.
1) Go to Control Panel
2) Check to see that you are in "Control Panel Home" and not "Classic View"
3) Click on Network and Internet
4) Click on Network and Sharing Center
5) In the left column (small print) click on "Manage network connections"
6) Now look for your wireless connection.
To enable wireless:
1) Right click on your wireless connection
2) Click on Diagnose
3) It will diagnose and tell you to turn on the wireless...and it will give you a button to finally turn it on.
4) Click that button and it will repair the wireless. Voila!

I had this same problem. After one reboot the wireless touch sensitive button would just not work. On the advice of acer support, I removed the battery and ac adapter and held the power button down for 30 seconds. When I boot the battery back in and booted up I was able to use the button again normally.

To turn your wireless back on: Click on the internet icon at the bottom right corner of your taskbar. Open "Network and Sharing Center". Click "Manage Network Connections" on top right of the Network and Sharing Center Right-click on your wireless network and then click "Diagnose" If your wireless is off, it should give you the option to turn it back on. This is different than the other "diagnose" functions where it simply tells you to turn it back on because this one actually turns your wireless back on for you. You should then see the orange flashing light on your keyboard and your wireless should be back up and running again.

There is a slide button on the bottom of the laptop, next to the battery button, that got me working again

Instead of going through all of that, the best and easiest way to try and fix it is to download the driver from the Acer website.
look up the model on the website and download and install the wireless driver.
This way will definitely fix it if there is a driver error.

Its usually nothing to do with wireless drivers. When you reinstall windows or update the bios( or windows just messes up ) Reinstalling the wireless drivers doesnt help. Theres a program called eFramework that needs reinstallation. http://us.acer.com/acer/service.do?LanguageISOCtxParam=en&miu10einu24.current.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&sp=page15e&ctx2.c2att1=25&miu10ekcond13.attN2B2F2EEF=3750&CountryISOCtxParam=US&ctx1g.c2att92=453&ctx1.att21k=1&CRC=2054404012

I have an acer aspire 6930g and my 'easy launch' function keys stopped working too. i updated all drivers and tried various means of turning the wifi back on using different programs. nothing worked. i downloaded an intel program that told me the radio switch was off but couldn't find anything anywhere to tell me how to turn it back on without using the broken touch sensitive button. i was tethering off my iphone for days. so irritating.
is the option to turn wireless on/ off via windows mobility center greyed out or absent? mine was but yours mightn't be so that'd be my first port of call. failing that, try the Fn + F5 combination. it's a schoolboy trick that took me about four days of pull-out-your-hair frustration to discover.
if all of your function keys are broken, and it bothers you at all, you can buy a new keyboard cover on ebay, and there are tutorials to help you replace it if you don't feel like visiting a computer shop. maybe that'll fix the actual buttons themselves.

If you remove the drivers for your wireless and reinstall them, it should work again.

The switch for the 6930 is located just above the NumLock key. It actually looks like an LED indicator of a satellite dish, but it's not. It's the button for the WiFi enable/disable. Push it hard...
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

What qualifies you people to write responses? The switch for the 6930 is located just above the NumLock key. It actually looks like an LED indicator of a satellite dish, but it's not. It's the button for the WiFi enable/disable. Push it hard...
