For Windows Based Computers

If the drivers for the wireless adapter contain a setting to toggle wireless radio, it can be located using the

following path: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Right click Wireless Network Connection Icon > Properties >

Configure > Advanced tab

Here you will find a textbox with a list of selectable properties that are populated by the device driver. Once you

select a property there will be a value field with a dropdown box containing configuration options that apply to that

specific property. The name of the wireless radio property may vary because the listed properties are dependent on

each specific device driver. It should be fairly intuitive to determine the correct property if you simply have the user

read all the listed properties to you.

Many laptop manufacturers will place a physical switch on the outside casing of the laptop, so that the user can

easily toggle wireless radio. Sometimes these switches get accidentally turned off, or intentionally turned off and the

end user forgets to switch it back. The best practice in these situations is to ask the user to look for a physical switch

on the case of the laptop, possibly with a symbol of a radio tower next to it. After turning the wireless switch on, the

user will probably need to refresh their network list.

Laptops built by certain manufacturers may have a specific keystroke set up to toggle wireless radio.

Below are some examples of wireless radio software and hardware toggles that we have been able to

document:

Acer (General) - FN,F5

ASUS (General) -The F5R has a toggle switch to turn on and off the WIFI; it is located on the left side of the

notebook

Dell (General) - FN,F2 or FN,F8 or FN,F12
Dell d630 (D6xx?) latitude: toggle switch on the left side towards the front by the PCMCIA slots and headphone

jack

E-machine (General) - FN,F2

Fujitsu (General) - FN,F10

HP/Compaq (General Older models) - Button on upper left on keyboard deck
HP/Compaq (General Newer models) - Button on lower left below keyboard

IBM thinkpad (General) - Most have software switch or button on left hand side.
IBM thinkpad (model not further identified) with wireless switch on front edge of case.

Sony Vaio (General) - switch on front left

Toshiba (General) - FN,F5 or FN,F8 or switch
Toshiba Satelite has a physycal switch on front of case. FN+F8 shows wether wireless communications is

enabled or disabled.

For MAC/Apple Based Computers

MAC OS X 10.4.x (Tiger & Earlier)
Open MAc Hard Drive > Applications > Utilities folder > Set the Configure pull-down to Airport.
Make sure the "Airport Power:" says On. (This is the status or your Mac's Airport card.)
If not, click "Turn Airport On" button.

MAC OS X 10.5.x (Leopard)
Click on the: Apple Icon > System Preferences > Network > Airport > Airport Power - On/Off

You can check to see if the wifi drivers are still installed. Try to reinstall the drivers. If there good look for a switch or button the controls the wifi on or off. If switch or button doesn't work then it may be bad and need replacement.

Wireless switch location for acer aspire 4715z


It is the last button on the left side of the keyboard near shift key with Signal up logo (I think with yellow light, when enable) that enables/disables the wireless adaptor.

My wifi light wont come on


Hopefully you just shut down the "RADIO" and a switch will turn it back on.

It comes with a Acer InviLink 802.11b/g wireless LAN, Acer SignalUp technology for enhanced antenna efficiency, WI-FI CERTIFIED™

Look between the Keyboard and the Monitor and there is a row of buttons.

Just above the "F4" button is a switch for the wireless to turn on and off.

When you get it back up and running download and save the instructions at this site.

Wont find wifi connections available


Sounds like either your wifi button is off on the side of the computer or your computer is not recognizing your wireless card if the wifi button is indeed on ( Try sliding it off then back to on) then try downloading new ethernet drivers http://support.acer.com/product_support.aspx?tab=2
