When I bought my Travelmate 380, there was WiFi but then after a year and a half, all of a sudden, the Wifi just disappeared and if I press the bluetooth/wireless button, it tells me NO DEVICE.
I would like to find out how to get the device back or what could be wrong that I cannot use my Wireless internet anymore.
If u are using acer aspire 4520 4530 tx1000 tx2000 it will be the northbridge that integrated with graphic chip into the nvidia chip having problem which it control wifi card as well.reballing the chip will solve the problem.
I haven't tried it yet but will do it just now and see if it works, otherwise, maybe I need to take my laptop apart and see if the card maybe came loose or maybe got damaged. Will keep you informed. Thanks for your help.

Download the wireless and device drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure you select the model of your laptop the drivers you that require that matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: - http://www.acersupport.com/drivers_download.aspx

I have actually experienced this before and surprisingly, it turned out to be a hardware fault with my built-in wireless device. I had to resort eventually to one of those USB plug-in wifi dongles. They cost less than ten bucks, and if you don't need the range, come in "nano" sizes that protrude less than half an inch when installed. Do disable the internal wifi device, either in device manager or better still, in the bios if using this solution.
when you install fresh copy system doesnt recognise wifi by default ..goto http://hp.com type in your pc model ...navigate to drivers and download your wifi driver ....once downloaded install driver ...once driver installed system will detect and prepare wifi..
Most Acers use an IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does and your router is using WPA or WPA2 (TKIP or AES) security then you'll need to update the driver by searching for it manually using the Custom button (Hardware) in Windows update (instead of Express). This driver is not part of XP service pack 2 or 3. In my experience if you don't update to the newest common form of home wireless security (WPA2 AES) then the older formats seem to become unreliable in the way you describe
Dylan, I don't know who your ISP provider is, but I am using BT and had to change to a Belkin modem so that I could connect Archos 605 wifi and Palmone. Had the same problems as you have, which have disappeared on installation of Belkin modem,
