Why don't i have a wireless network adapter showing in my device manager?

Hi, Try reseating the wireless card then restart the computer. If that doesnt work manually reinstall the driver, you should be able to find the drivers on the acer site.
It could be the card itself may need to be replaced. If you know someone with a usb wireless adapter borrow it, install and see what happens.
Since it's not showing in the device manager but shows it is disabled makes me think it's a driver/hardware issue.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

Curser will not move from center of screen. I repaced batteries, sincronized with part that goes into the computer. Tried to turn-off and restart computer, resincronized again, curser still doesnot move.

I am not sure what device you are having a problem with so can't diagnose problem the best. The word cursor implies the mouse. Make sure the mouse has fresh batteries and is synced withh the wireless transmitter by pushing the reset button on both. If not go to start, control panel, devices, mouse and set each setting. Lastly a mouse is not seen by the computer unless it is plugged in and a reboot is then done. Hope this helps.

Open up your tower and take out the ram. Then put it back in and close the case. Make sure your power cord is disconnected when you do it. Then restart and see if it helps.

Internet wireless card

It's possible that the wireless driver is not installed or the wireless card is turned off in the bios or defective.

1. Check if the the driver is installed. Go to start. Right click 'My computer'. Left click properties. click hardware. click device manager. If there is a red 'X' on the wireless driver. Right click it and click enable. If there is a question mark on network controller or wireless driver. Click this link and choose the model of your laptop to get the wireless driver. Run the file to install the driver. Restart the computer if instructed then see if it worked.

2. If the light still wont turn on, go to the bios. You can do this by turning the computer off. Turn it on and repeatedly tap F2 right after pressing the power button. You should get a screen where you can change the settings. Click this link and choose your laptop's model and look for the instructions on how to turn on the wireless card in the bios. You may also browse the BIOS screen for that setting. Once you've set it to on, save the changes and restart the computer.

MY WIRELESS ROUTER WILL NOT CONNECT TO THE INTERNET. The lights on the front are flashing. I have installed the modem adn router disk but it still wont work.....

If you have a modem connected to a wireless router that is connected to the computer, turn all the devices off and turn them back on in this order.
1. modem
2. wireless router
3. computer

let the device start up all the way before you start the next device. (I.E. let all the lights on the modem come on before starting the wireless router and let all the lights come on on the wireless router before turning on the computer).

Hope that helps.

Wireless Button Disabled

After one month of trying everything, I finally figured this one out.  First turn off and restart your computer.  Then press F10 to enter the System BIOS Settings.  Select F9 (Setup Defaults) and when it asks Load Default Configuration Now? , Enter YES.  Then, press F10 (Save and Exit) and when it asks Save Configuration Changes And Exit Now, Enter YES.  This should restore the wireless LAN button to its original factory settings.  Once you restart the computer the button will be listed as disabled, but press on the button and it should work again.  I hope this helps someone else out!
