There is a slider switch or a push button switch on the front of the notebook and will flash up orange when connected.

I can't see my wrt54g router with my acer aspire laptop


Check your Acer has the wireless device and driver been installed.
If so then -
To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Trying to connect my mobile to my wirelesss Netgear,keeps asking for wep


You have set your wireless connection as Secured Wireless Network when you configured your wireless Modem/Router, so you need the "Network Keys" (ie the set password) to access to your wireless network. That is why your wireless cxonnection is asking for the "WEP KEYS" in order to connect to your Wireless Acess Point.

You can read your modem/router manual how to access to your router to see what password you have set.
or
Refer to the link, here

Hope it helps.

Hi, i have a D-link DWL-G122 wirelesss adapter and when connected after 30 min or less the conection gets lost , what to do?


You will need to contact your ISP - they know your set up - it is all sent to them and they do not care for it - - most likely the ISP you have needs to be told to keep the signal stronger - also you can go into your unit and set a STAY ALIVE setting - please read your wireles ROUTER - it is the signal sending unit - or wireless rounter that is the problem - not the adaptor.
