Ok, i dont know exaclty how to do this, but look for a wireless icon, or something that looks like a wireless representation on the F keys. ex: "F10, F11". Press FN and that key to turn on\off your adapter.
Wish i could help more, Good luck

Is this laptop equipped with wirless connection fromthe manufactorere or must it be purchased


Most late model Acer Aspire laptops have G or N WiFi included in the computer. My Acer 3680 series has it built in (G) and I added a D-Link N card to it to speed things up.

There should be a switch on the front or a Fn Button that turns on the WiFi.

There are two possibilities for Acer laptops:

Its either a switch in front of the laptop along side where you connect the headphones etc.

Or its a Fn key combination: Fn+F5.

Broken wireless switch... wireless is stuck on "off".


Im not sure if there is a workaround for that when the switch is broke but hold down the FN key and press the F4 key and see if that activates the wireless card. If not then you need to get that switch replaced. Hope it helps.

Laptop wlan and bluetooth switch broke help? plz!


The answer is probably no. If it was stuck in the on position you could disable it some other way but stuck in the off position is different.

If you are using Vista you can open the windows mobility center and look at the wireless section. If turn on is grayed out then mess with the place the switch should be until it is not grayed out.
