Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
1. Position your wireless router (or wireless access point) in a central location.When possible, place your wireless router in a central location in your home
2. Move the router off the floor and away from walls and metal objects (such as metal file cabinets).
3. Replace your router's antenna.The antennas supplied with your router are designed to be omni-directional, meaning they broadcast in all directions around the router
4. Replace your computer's wireless network adapter.Wireless network signals must be sent both to and from your computer.
5. Add a wireless repeater.Wireless repeaters extend your wireless network range without requiring you to add any wiring
6. Change your wireless channel.
7. Reduce wireless interference.If you have cordless phones or other wireless electronics in your home, your computer might not be able to "hear" your router over the noise from the other wireless devices
8. Update your firmware or your network adapter driver.Router manufacturers regularly make free improvements to their routers
9. Pick equipment from a single vendor.While a Linksys router will work with a D-Link network adapter, you often get better performance if you pick a router and network adapter from the same vendor
10. Upgrade 802.11b devices to 802.11g.802.11b is the most common type of wireless network, but 802.11g is about five times faster

First go to your Network connections and make sure you have your wireless connection enabled,this is of course assuming that you have a wirless router on your cable/dsl modem, in this window you will see all connections on your computer, you can also create a new connection, you might also, if you are connected to a router create a home or small office network , the reason that it is only detecting your wired connection is because a lot of cable/DSL companies do not support/troubleshoot wireless/router problems and threfore do not install with disk provided,and you must have a wireless router to get wireless connection all cable/dsl modems are hard wired unless you add the router to make it wireless, wireless zero service is only so windows can control you wireless connection, the only way it wold be turned off is if you install a third party application i.e a wirless G network adapter, wich has its own application.

If this laptop has a wireless switch, make sure it's on.
Did you get the wireless hub?
Wireless is controlled by the wireless zero service, which should turn on automatically when your adapter is detected.
You can turn it on manually in Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services

Wireless problems with a Packard Bell PC or laptop can be caused by a variety of issues.
The best troubleshooting resources are the documentation that came supplied with the computer, and the Support section of the Packard Bell website.
Unable To Detect Wireless Network
If the Packard Bell machine is unable to detect a wireless network, the computer itself or the network could be at fault.
Check that a wireless signal is being broadcast via another PC or device, and check that are wireless adapter is installed, complete with the latest drivers, which are available at the Packard Bell website.
Unreliable Wireless Network
If the wireless connection is unreliable, intermittent or very slow, it suggests a problem with the Wi-Fi broadcast.
Try positioning the computer closer to the router broadcasting the wireless signal, or use a signal booster to improve the range.
Download and install the latest driver updates from the Packard Bell website and through the Windows Update tool.
Unable To Connect To Wireless Network
If the computer can detect the network but is unable to connect to it, a network security key may be required. This should have been configured by the person who set up the network. Consult the documentation that came with your router for details of how to change it or generate a new key.
Hope this helps
