Acer Aspire One not recognizing wireless adapter

This laptop just suddenly stopped recognizing its wireless adapter. The wireless light is not illuminating however, when the switch is moved the screen does indicate that the wireless lan is enabled or disabled.

    Thanks so much for answering. I did check device manager but it is not even listed. I will check the actual adapter, if i can access it, as you suggested. if not that, then i guess its gonna be a new card.

Hello,

You may want to check the status of the device in the device manager found in your control panel -> system. Under network adapters check if there are error messages indicated. It would have errors indicated should there be problems. If there are you can update the driver (if it a new driver is available) or reinstall the driver (can be found in your manufacturer's website or disk provided). You may also want to check the under side since most of these laptops has access to your cards such as your RAM and your wireless card. You may want to check if it has come loose that is why your computer cannot detect the physical presence. Other than that it may be a faulty card or an LED.

If you are running windows vista or windows 7 then you need to go to the power setting on the system, in the advanced options and look for wireless power setting. Turn the when on battery setting to leave the wireless card running instead of turning it off.

Go to display settings, screen saver, power options, balanced power or power saver, and look in there for the wireless adapter.

Acer 6930 wireless adapter failure conflict


Most Acers use a form of Intel IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does, you use XP and your router is using WPA or WPA2 (TKIP or AES) security then you'll need to update the driver by searching for it manually using the Custom button (Hardware) in Windows update (instead of Express). This driver is not part of XP service pack 2 or 3. Like me you've fallen foul of thinking that keeping your computer up to date using Automated Windows Update will keep everything in good order when in fact it can generate more problems than it solves

WIRELESS CONNECTION


Go to the Device Manager and check Wireless Network Adapter properties. Is the Wireless adapter installed, working properly and enabled? If not then reinstall the wireless LAN driver.

If it is OK then go to the Control Panel and click on Network Connections and right click on the wireless connection anf then click on Repair. This will make the wireless router issue a new IP address to the wireless LAN card and you whould now get access to the Internet & your network.
If this doesn't work power down your wireless router wait 1/2 minute, power up and boot up your laptop after all the normal LEDs on the wireless are on.

Let me know if you still have problems plus all error messages.

Wireless Adapter not working under Vista


when you say the radio button does not light up, are you refering to the light on the front of the notebook?, if so you can turn the wireless on and off by the little slider switch next to the light.
