Acer 3003LCi - Wireless Connection

My laptop will not log onto the internet.

I'm told the reason is that the "radio is disabled".

How do I correct this?

It seems the two oval lights on the front of the Acer TravelMate 3003LCi are not only lights to indicate WiFi traffic, but also buttons to turn the WiFi radio on and off for security reasons. If you press and hold the left side button for 3-5 seconds it should turn back on the WiFi radio. Windows XP (and maybe other OS’s) have a power saving function that turns the radio off when not in use to save the battery, so you have to use the buttons to turn the radio back on. Seems like a pain in the @$$ to me, but it’s a clients laptop not mine so he will have to live with that.

I hope this helps someone so they do not have to go through the frustration of trying to figure out why the radio has been turned off.

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

I can get online with my Acer only if I hook an either net cable from it to the router. I was told the wireless is locked, but don't know how to unlock it.


There is a W.E.P. code on the bottom of your router you have to type in your laptop in the "internet Connetions, bottom right of your screen. If this fails go into your anti-virus and disable the wireless internet connection lock.

I can´t get connected to wifi in acer aspire 300lci


The most common reason for lack of wi-fi is that the laptop maker put a hard-to see switch somewhere on the rim of the chassis. My Acer 3003lci has it disguised as an activity light on the front-center edge; if you acidentally press it, there's a light 'click', the orange light goes out, and the wi-fi device is turned off. Press it again, it's back on and takes a minute to find and reconnect to wi-fi. Others I've helped have HP laptops, where the switch is a slider with the tiniest blue pin-light to show whether it's on or off.

The 2nd most common reason is that Windows, in its infinite wisdom, thinks it can run the laptop's wi-fi device better than the device's firmware, and disables the device driver in favor of its own. If you tinker with the settings, you can fix this, but it requires much patience.

I have internet connection to my desk top but no wireless connection, why?


you should log into your router and check to make sure that your wireless internet is active. Once you log in there should be settings for your wireless and one option should be to disable it make sure it is not disabled. if it is not disabled on the back of your router should be a small reset button press this button and it should reset your setting and may correct your problem.

I hope this helped.

Thank you,

Cannot get onto internet


disable the firewall on control panel.
check all the properties boxes on the network
connections and make sure firewall is disabled.

access the router setup and make sure that VCI is set to manual
and that you enter in the settings yourself (eg: 0,38 for aol broadband). Don't leave VCI, etc on auto, the router can't handle it.
