Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook
A month ago I upgraded my Acer Aspire 5610 to Vista with no problems (didnt upgrade the BIOS). Recently, I downgraded back to XP for compatability reasons. After reverting to XP, I noticed my wireless connection was not working (The necessary executables, and drivers were installed after XP). Any suggestions as to why this is happening?
Please note -
I had a similar problem. When I reloaded Vista, I didn't use Acers disk. Turns out I still couldn't use Wireless after loading all the drivers. I had to FLASH the BIOS to get it to work. The files are with the drivers. If you made the drivers disk, it will be in a bios directory. Otherwise just download the flash for BIOS from Acer.

This may be a bit late for Sanjaja. I'm running XP with SP3 I have the same problem - my wireless button on my Acer 5610 ceased to function tonight. Now, I come from the generation of MacGuyver wannabes, who have to open up ANYTHING that's broken with my trusty pocket knife, even though I have little to no idea what I'm doing. Unfortunately in doing so I popped the switch off, and the little spring it was attached to zipped off to wherever the other end was - beyond the reach of my knife. ****.
I tried opening device manager to find a way of enabling the wireless on switch via the software, but to no avail.
When I booted up the computer, the wireless adapter would start to connect to the internet,, then the ePowering Technology would startup, and turn off my wireless. The only way i could connect again was to unplug my power cable, & try to find a solution online before my battery ran out.
I even tried fiddling with the BIOS
Anyway - SOLUTION
1- I pressed the 'e' key, up the top right corner of my keyboard, about half an inch above my delete key.
2- I selected Acer eNet Management
3- Underneath the Settings button, and to the left of the VPN button, there's an icon that looks like a magnifying glass over this shape _'_ ..... so i pressed that. It turned out to be a Network Adviser button.
4- There was a table with the headings Event, Possible Cause, & Solution. The even was that my wireless adapter wasn't enabled. Funnily enough, that was also the Possible Cause. The Possible Solution said "To enable it, click here. So I clicked 'here' and I'm connected, and posting this long-winded note. So hopefully it may help someone
