Laptops nowadays have wireless switches. It's on your keyboard. Usually it's a dedicated key that looks like an antenna with signal going out. Or it's a combination of Fn + F2 key. I suggest that you refer to the user manual to find the exact wireless switch.

That means there is a corrupt or a missing wireless driver on your new acer laptop. First of all if you are using Windows XP follow the following
1. Go to start
2. Right-click on "My computer"
3. Go to "Properties
4. Go to Hardware tab
5. Go to Device manager
In the device manager check for any yellow question mark or an exclamation mark. Especially on the network adapters. That means if you had the network drivers working before, then they are corrupt or they are not there at all.

Here is the solution..
visit acer.com and go to their downloads and support tab, you will be abel to see the model of your computer and you can download the wireless drivers that are compatible with your laptop.

Hi,

welcome to Fixya. Try the Fn+F2 combination. This will turn on/off the wireless network. You should see the wireless connection icon on your system tray. Just double click on it and connect to your specific network.

Hope this would help.:)

Installed XP to my emachine EL1850G-42W, cant get connect with internet, what's the model of it enthernet controller?


HI.
Your eMachines computer has an integrated network card, not a pci type of card.

It is a 10/100/100 network, so it will work well with both personal and business class internet services at high speeds.

Now, if you wish to go wirelessly to the internet, then you will need to get a wireless network adapter.

Those usually go for around 30-40 dollars at WalMart.

I hopre that this is what you were wanting to know, and good luck to you.

You may be better of the purchase your own wireless router and set up your own internet account. The host network can only run as fast as the plan the owner purchased allows it to.

WPA is not very stable and I have seen many problems with this. Simply change router setting to be configured with WEP and use a good strong password in hex 0-9 and a-f . WPA is horrible any way, and who the heck is gonna sit out side your home to hack it? It is not a WIN 7 problem but more like aging encryption.

Acer e525 network adapter doesn't work(NONE of the drivers works)


Access "Device Manager".
Select the device.
Click to "uninstall" it.
Restart your computer.
Vista should automatically "find new hardware", and install the correct driver.
If not, tell us what error-message(s) you get.
