Cannot connect my acer 5600 wirelessly. WIFI is not lighted on. It says to turn on wireless switch.


The wireless switch is on the front edge of the laptop. With the lid closed, its position on the front edge is just under the right latch of the lid. Turn on by sliding the switch to the right momentarily. You should see Wireless LAN Enabled in large green letters appear briefly at the bottom of the screen. A single screen icon should appear in the desktop's Toolbar at the bottom right of the screen. If the icon doesn't appear, then likely the Wireless Network Connection is disabled. To enable do the following steps....
1. click start button at bottom right of screen
2. click Control Panel
3. in the Control Panel window, click Network Connections
4. right click Wireless Network Connection
5. on the drop-down menu click enable
If there is no Wireless Network Connection in the Control Panel's Network Connection, then the setting up of the Wireless Network Connection was skipped when the laptop was first unpacked and setup. In Control Panel, click on the Wireless Network Setup Wizard to setup the Wireless Network Connection.

What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

IT DOESNT WORK OUT


Sounds like your wireless is disabled.

If your using windows xp, check the following.
Go to your start menu
go to your control panel (might be under settings, might not.)
from control panel, if it says "Choose a Category" click switch to classic view.
open your Network Connections Icon.
If "Wireless Network Connection" is grayed out, right click it and choose, "Enable."

In Windows Vista
Go to the bottom right hand corner of your screen to the icons.
Right click on the double monitors (network connection)
Select Network and Sharing Center
Click on Open Network Connections
If "Wireless Network Connections:" is grayed out, right click it and choose, "Enable."

If it is enabled, and you already have wireless built in to your laptop, then it's possible the wrong wireless card is enabled. If this is the case, when you open your network connections, you will have two Wireless Network Connection Icons.
A Wireless Network Connection, and a Wireless Network Connection 2. Make sure 2 is enabled, and the first one without a number is disabled.

Let me know if this helps.
