I have two Acer Aspire One Netbooks: x1 10.1" and x1 8.9". The switch located on the very front right edge of these Netbooks is quite tricky to get it to actually switch the WiFi radio ON / OFF. Double check that switch position and since it is spring-loaded, you will have to try to see the tiny green light flickering if WiFi radio is active. The green ON (active radio) lamp is TINY and dim at best even when Brand new.

Also, if I have had the radio OFF and / or the Wireless connection 'disabled" on purpose, both of my Netbooks require a full hard boot before they will again connect to WiFi.

Hope this helps!
Good Luck

    Hi,my Acer Aspire 3683 NWXCi is unable to detect wireless network and some drivers are not working,is there any free recovery disc to overcome this problems.


    the problem is most likely located not in your computer but in your wireless router or connection source itself. Disconnect the modem, mor router from any power source for at least ten minuets and then make sure EVERY connection is firmly in place.
