Dear friend, before use the wireless internet you have to make a new wireless network connection from My Network Place. Then your have to install wireless driver from Acer driver DVD. After all these restart your laptop and then you see the Wifi button light are blinking.

Thanks and waiting for your feedback.

Wireless lan not working on my acer aspire 4520


The wireless feature (Wireless LAN) on an Acer notebook allows you to connect to available networks. This convenience allows you to use the Internet with network cables, modems or network installation. Acer laptops come with a wireless switch to turn the wireless feature on or off. Once you enable the wireless feature, your Acer notebook can connect to wireless networks within range.

Instructions:
1.Locate the Wireless LAN switch located on the front of your Acer Notebook. Move the switch to the right to turn on Wireless connections.

2.Right-click the network icon located on the system tray next to the clock. You should see a list of available wireless networks.

3.Select the network you want to connect to and click "Connect."

Hp pavilion dv6 how do i turn on the wireless capability


kmkiesler
he light at the top of the keyboard is the button. It does not look like a button. Press it and wait as much as two seconds for the color to change. You will then need to re-establish a connection to the wireless router. Click on the wireless icon next to or near the clock in the task tray of your screen. Choose a connection from the list that appears. Thanks for using Fixya.com. Have a great day.

Will not connect to the internet. It just started this. It tells me there is no internet, when I try and fix the problem the computer tells me I need to turn on the wireless capabiltiy. It tells me it...


It's been a long time since I've seen this model, but with Acer's I remember the button generally being either near the power button (would be a button with an LED light behind it) or as a little switch on the front, lower side (basically under the touchpad)
The button itself will have an icon that looks like a radio tower with little' ) ) )' coming off of it in in different sizes. If you don't see it, look at the F keys for the same symbol, then use the Fn button and press that key. I know you said you looked everywhere but hopefully this helps.
Sometimes there is a software switch also that will allow you to turn on / off the wireless, verify that when you try and connect to a wireless it doesn't ask if you want the computer to flip the switch for you.

How to make a wireless antenna?


I assume you mean that wireless is no enabled on the device.
You will find a button, usually at the top, with a symbol that looks like a satellite dish, press this. it will enable wireless - this assumes it is disabled.
Please let me know if this works, if not we can move on to the next stage.

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 connect wirelessly with router


The list of wireless routers that are available in Windows is very limited and the signal strength of any router that is detected is weak. This can occur when the Lite-On USB Wireless 802.11 b/g hardware and Windows are not able to fully synchronize the signal strength data. Figure 1: Example of detected wireless devices when the antenna cable wire is connected to secondary port c01153759.jpg Figure 2: Example of detected wireless devices in the same environment when the antenna cable wire is connected to primary port c01153760.jpg To correct this error , download and install Lite-On USB Wireless LAN Driver Update (sp35177) (in English) from the HP Web site. This update should only be applied if your PC has the Lit-On USB Wireless LAN adapter and is exhibiting the symptom. As a work-around, you can connect the wire that runs from the wireless antenna port to the primary port on the cord as follows: CAUTION: This product contains components that can be damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, use a static dissipative work surface (like a conductive foam pad), and wear an ESD wrist strap connected to a grounded surface.
  1. Open the side panel.
  2. Find the wireless networking board by following the antenna wire connected to the wireless networking antenna port on the back of the computer. Figure 3: Wireless networking hardware c01153761.jpg 1 - Wireless network board 2 - Antenna wire 3 - Wireless networking antenna port
  3. Very carefully, disconnect the small wire from the board by gently pulling the end of the wire away from the board.
  4. Connect the wire to the other available port on the board. Figure 4: Available port c01153762.jpg
  5. Replace the side panel, connect the power cord, turn on the computer, and use the computer again to verify that wireless signal strengths have improved.
