The connection between the laptop's internal wireless antenna and its wireless card may been disconnected. Best to take it in to a computer shop for fixing. If you want to fix it, open the PCI-E cover on the bottom of the laptop, then reconnect the antenna wire. If that doesn't work, get it serviced.

Wireless switched off wont connect

On the side edge or on the front edge of the laptop there should be a wireless switch or a clear button, when you activate it the wireless light should light up amber/orange.

Can not find wireless driver and network drivers

Lim, sorry to hear about the virus attack. Hope you can get a better protection next time. I will recommend Avast Antivirus instead of AVG.

Then again, this will be the link to help with the driver download.

All the best.

Aspire 5610 Wireless Problem

I had a similar problem.  When I reloaded Vista, I didn't use Acers disk.  Turns out I still couldn't use Wireless after loading all the drivers.  I had to FLASH the BIOS to get it to work.  The files are with the drivers.  If you made the drivers disk, it will be in a bios directory.  Otherwise just download the flash for BIOS from Acer.
