Enable wireless capability


Certain models of Acer desktop computers are designed with wireless capabilities.
These capabilities can be added to an Acer desktop system that does not connect wirelessly with either an internal or external wireless card, depending on the computer's configuration.
When the wireless connection is not working properly, you can troubleshoot the issue yourself.
The troubleshooting process eliminates the problems that may be preventing the Acer desktop computer from connecting wirelessly.

Check to see if any other computers at the same location are able to connect wirelessly.
The issue may reside with the wireless router or access point.
Power cycling the router or access point may resolve this issue.
Verify that the wireless adapter is enabled.
Click the "Start" button, then "Control Panel."
Click "Network and Sharing Center," then "Change Adapter Settings."
If the wireless adapter is disabled, right-click on it and select "Enable."
Connect to the proper wireless network.
The Acer may be attempting to the connect to the wrong wireless network, or it may have lost its connection to the correct network.
Click the wireless network icon in the task bar.
Click the proper wireless network, then click "Connect."
Enter the network password (or WEP key) if prompted.

I installed TP-Link WN7200 on Windows 7 Home Premium, the drivers is not digitally signed. The adapter is disabled and I can't enable it. There is no error in device manager. Please help me.


It is ok if the driver is not digitally signed. There's no need to worry.

To enable the adapter:
  1. Click on the Windows Start button
  2. Type in "network"
  3. Open "Network and Sharing Center"
  4. On the left bar, click on "Change Adapter Settings"
  5. Select your wireless adapter
  6. Right click on the wireless adapter then select Enable.
If you cannot select Enable, it means your adapter is already enabled. The adapter has a gray icon due to it not being connected to a router.

Brother i have just opened a wireless network but my wireless network is not working properly. Can u plz contact me for some help i shall be very thank full to you if u do this favour for me. Thanks...


Troubleshooting issues with wireless connectivity can be tricky. There are a bevy of potential causes for drops in the connection, slow-downs in throughput and sporadic signal loss. As such, it's best to take a shotgun approach, throwing a number of possible fixes at the problem and hoping one sticks.

Check if your laptop's wireless switch or button is turn on - look around the laptop in front, back or sides. Sometimes you might touch to turn off accidently and you don't know. Many laptops have the wireless light indicator, check if the wireless light is on and blinking.

Look for F1 to F12 functions keys, they are on the top row of the keypad. Look for one has an icon that looks like the wireless, which is to control the wireless connection of your laptop. It maybe F8 or F9 depends on each make of your laptop. These function keys also control the brightness, sound, touchpad etc. You will need to hold down the Fn + F8 combination keys together, in this example the Toshiba laptop's wireless setting.

    Check Network connections; make sure the laptop connection is not 'disabled'. It should has the gray color if it's disabled. Right click on it and enable it.

    If none of the above works, you will need to enable the Wireless Zero Configuration in services.msc (type this in from Run command), or you can see it this way: Right click My Computer -> Manage -> Services and Applications -> Services.

    Wireless Button Disabled


    After one month of trying everything, I finally figured this one out.  First turn off and restart your computer.  Then press F10 to enter the System BIOS Settings.  Select F9 (Setup Defaults) and when it asks Load Default Configuration Now? , Enter YES.  Then, press F10 (Save and Exit) and when it asks Save Configuration Changes And Exit Now, Enter YES.  This should restore the wireless LAN button to its original factory settings.  Once you restart the computer the button will be listed as disabled, but press on the button and it should work again.  I hope this helps someone else out!

    IT DOESNT WORK OUT


    Sounds like your wireless is disabled.

    If your using windows xp, check the following.
    Go to your start menu
    go to your control panel (might be under settings, might not.)
    from control panel, if it says "Choose a Category" click switch to classic view.
    open your Network Connections Icon.
    If "Wireless Network Connection" is grayed out, right click it and choose, "Enable."

    In Windows Vista
    Go to the bottom right hand corner of your screen to the icons.
    Right click on the double monitors (network connection)
    Select Network and Sharing Center
    Click on Open Network Connections
    If "Wireless Network Connections:" is grayed out, right click it and choose, "Enable."

    If it is enabled, and you already have wireless built in to your laptop, then it's possible the wrong wireless card is enabled. If this is the case, when you open your network connections, you will have two Wireless Network Connection Icons.
    A Wireless Network Connection, and a Wireless Network Connection 2. Make sure 2 is enabled, and the first one without a number is disabled.

    Let me know if this helps.
