Hi I have a refurbished acer travelmate 4500 series just received. the wireless button is at the front, the led does not appear to work but in the control panel it says that wireless is working. I...


As far as I am aware, the LED is wired directly across the supply to the WiFi board and I would conclude from that, that it is faulty. Possibly the switch actuator is the wrong side of the switch? I would get it replaced or repaired whilst it is "Out of the box".
Hope that gives you an idea.

Reinstalled windows onto acer travelmate 2410 and downloaded all drivers etc but when going into device manager there is no wireless card showing. how can i get the wireless to work now?


There will be a button to start up or power on the wireless device. so switch it on then it will start detecting the wireless hardware for driver installation.

ACER travelmate 250 has no wifi radio on/off switch of buttons or combo (using Fxx). Intel Wireless pro says that the hardware switch must be turned on. How?


The Wireless radio is controled with the "Notebook Manager" application. You can set the wireless options there. The user guide is very helpfull and you can download it at

Wireless switch


the wireless switch isnt actually a switch. its the same as on the travelmate 2410 i think.which means its a little button on the front. but if that doesnt work
you could always activate it from inside the network connections bit on control panel.
