How do I turn on wirelrss capabilities for my acer aspire? I do not see a switch and do not know the combination function keys.

dear friend
this is what you are looking for you can connect and disconnect from this icon near the time and date at bottom of the screen.

if you dont have this icon then you have to go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > and look for connection that mention wireless or something like that. If the connection in semitransparent it means it is disabled. double click it and it will be enabled.
otherwise you have to install the drivers of the wireless adapter.

Wear is the wireless button on ac er aspire 5738z?

Good day,

The wireless switch or button on your notebook will allow you to connect to a wireless network, or when not connected, save battery power by turning off the wireless network adapter.
The wireless switch or button can be identified by having the following icon on or next to it:
icon_wireless.png or icon_wireless_dish.png Depending on which Acer model you have, this switch or button may be found in different locations.
  1. Just above the function keys (F1-F12)
  2. On the forward most edge of the notebook
Keep me posted!

It will surely go online wireless

The key should be on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop. If not you can download a key finder from the internet. { CAUTION: Test the key before deleating your OS and re installing it} I have found
that the generated key will not always work. Steve

Acer aspire lost internet connection how do i connect

Look on the Function keys on the keyboard (the F1 through F12 keys) Do you see a wireless icon on one of the keys? If you do, then look for a Function (Fn) key on the keyboard. Press and hold Fn, while holding Fn, press the funtion key with the wireless icon (example: the wireless icon is on the F2 key; press and hold the Fn key, while holding the Fn key, press F2, release both keys).

It depends on your lap top model weitheer you can turn it off. You could alwasy go innto internet explorer under connection settings and setup a fake dial up connection and make it the default connection. This will make it ask for permission before attaching to a wireless conection. I have windows XP pro on a laptop that I cannot turn off internet but it aslway ask before anyway because i have it set to connect to preferred networks only.
