    Hi,



    I have the same problem. I can't seem to pick the wireless network in my house, although i can see others in the area in my network connections. The wireless switch is on, and everything seems ok. I've checked the status of the wireless adapter in the control panel and it seems to be ok.

    I have the same problem as described. I know where that button is and it is on and says "wireless lan enabled". The orange light is blinking. The computer also tells me that the internal wireless card is working since it says "the device is working properly" in device manager. I cannot access or "see" any wireless networks and I have already set up one that works with another computer. Do i need to update a driver? Any help is appreciated.

The wireless switch is a button on the front of the casing, which is in the form of a push button which lights up orange or a little slider button.

SOURCE: Hi. I have just formatted the

Let see, can your wireless card on your laptop detect other network, if so, it is not your wireless card, and is a issue within your network, maybe different network name or out of range. If not, then it is your wireless laptop, If your laptop is able to detect your wireless card in the device manager, then you might have a driver promblem, There are FN keys that disable and enable your wireless card. But when you mentioned wirless is enable, that means your wireless card is enable and is working. These arn't really solution but just step by step to see what is wrong.

Just had new harddrive installed on laptop, now the wireless and blue tooth buttons on the front wont come on. any ideas please


Hello,

the problem could be in not turning on bluetooth nor wireless. As you have installed new hardrive, you have probably changed the system, so you need the drivers for your laptop.

Does everyting else work fine like before? In case not, you need the drivers(check this link)
In case yes, just try to activate either bluetooth or wireless like you have done it with old harddrive, and let me know.

Hi there,
First of all you need to see two things in the system 1. Drivers 2. Wireless button Light
1. If the drivers are installed you will see wireless icon in the taskbar bilalseham.jpg
if its not available you can check two things 1. Drivers are installed properly 2. Either its enable or disable
You will see the drivers by right clicking my computer>Manage> Device Manager Right click my Network Places> Properties> wireless network connection right click and select Enable
2. Wireless Button Light Infront of the laptop where you see the Audio Jacks and You see two white buttons (Right one is Wireless Enable/Disable Button) when its Disabled you will not see any light When Enabled you will see Orange light Blinking or stable. Press once and it should get enabled. and if you have installed Launch Manager you will also see notification on screen that WIRELESS ENABLED OR WIRELESS DISABLED
Follow above steps and you will be able to see the wireless connection,
Drivers Link: Wireless LAN Driver ( Atheros) Wireless LAN Driver (Broadcom)
If you require more assistance feel free to reply to this post

Acer aspire 3000 wi fi problem


First you need to make sure the Wireless drivers are installed in the computer, aswell the Acer Related utilities. Then Most acer laptops have a button on one of the sides or on the top of the laptop to turn on the wireless.

To find out if you have the acer related programs installed, try pressing some of the buttons on the top of the laptop, that are NOT apart of the keyboard, they should open up acer or related programs, if noting happens the programs are not installed, one of the buttons is likely to turn on the wireless.

To check if the wireless drivers are installed press start -> run -> type: msinfo32 (OR press down the windows key and press R, then let go and type msinfo32 into the run menu that comes up and click OK)

On the program, left side, open up components from the + next to it, then find Problem devices from the list and click on it, on the right you will see a list of devices that are not installed or not working.

If the list is empty, everything is properly installed. and you should be able to get your wireless to turn on by pressing on the wireless button on the laptop, and then use your computer to connect to a wireless network.


If you need further assistance let me know.

  1. I assume that you mean you cannot see your wireless network in the "Available Networks" list?
  2. Yes, there will be a switch on the laptop to enable/disable wireless.
  3. Is your router set to broadcast SSID? If it isn't then you won't see it in the list of available networks.

I'm afraid, you can't install XP home over XP Pro; it could be done the other way around. you'll have to  backup your important files then format your drive and restart from scratch.

if you have 2 partitionon in your HD e.g C: and D:
you can copy all your important files in the D:\ drive and just format and install XP home in the C:\ drive.
