In some Acer models, there is a software switch in Start/All Programs/Acer Launch Manager. If this is missing, you need to reinstall since even with the WiFi hard switch activated, this application is required. This is so especially if a new/clean/OEM install of the OS has been done on the laptop.

In some models, there is a hard switch either at the front or at the side to activate the internal wifi (and bluetooth). Still in other, there is button on the leading edge of the computer which also serves as an indicator lamp,

Some models also have WiFI enable/disable in the BIOS/CMOS setup.

Still others have a button along with the Easy-launch strip (top) together with the those for email , bluetooth , Acer Arcade & others.

As shown above, depending on the specific model/region version of your laptop, the WifI activation can be varied.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Acer travelmate 2303wlmi wifi button use to show wireless enable and disable logos when pushed now it just shows no device and launch manager is installed



"drivers obtained from acer own support site for acer travelmate 2300
then checked with a driver updater which reported that iv got the latest

Not trying to sound like Mr.Negative here but;


Wireless LAN Driver/Ambit/ KB/ 12/02/2008

That the one? So am I to assume you went to your Device Manager, and in Network Adapters, you found Ambit was the wireless module, manufacturer?

No? Doesn't say?
Then remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery. (Laptop off, and closed, 'natch)
Turn the laptop over, bottom side up, Battery Compartment facing away from you.

Open the Memory Compartment/Wireless Modem Compartment.
(Middle panel, two Philips head screws at bottom, rectangular slotted vent at bottom/right corner. Lift the panel up on the screw side )

Remove the Ram Memory modules, ('Stick')
What is the manufacturers name on the wireless modem?
Is it Ambit?

Or is it Atheros, or Intel?

Ambit wireless modem for a Sony laptop, used for an example,

It's upside down, but see Ambit?

2) How,....did you install? I want to know the procedure you used to INSTALL. A lot of people think that just downloading a driver, is the way to go. You have to install it also.

3) Never put much stock in the entities, that claim to know if you have all of the best drivers installed.

Had one that stated I had the best driver for my ATI graphics card, installed, but was so full of it, I can't begin to start...........

4) Service Pack 3. SP/3 has caused so many problems it isn't funny.

5) Physically see if the Wireless Modem's cables are plugged to it, (Or screwed)
I would remove the cables, (Make a MARK on each cable {Wire}, and a matching mark on the modem), and clean their connectors.
I would also do the same for the terminals on the wireless modem

Use a solid pencil eraser, and use air to remove the eraser dust, afterward.

{Cables, (Wires), MUST go back to the terminals on the Wireless Modem, that they belong to }

Would appreciate your results back in a Comment.
(When you get time, of course!)

Depending on the wlan model, you need one of these drivers


As this is an older model, the drivers may not be compatible to Vista.
If none of them are working, either try to install Windows 7 (with 7 i had the WLAN already installed with windows on a travelmate 5520) or revert to windows XP, for which one of the drivers I gave you works for sure.
