Wifi on 5720Z

I have everything working except WiFi.
I tried installing the package from the acer panam website,
but it does not detect the WiFi hardware.
It did work on Vista.
Any ideas ?

    Is the wireless card listed in device manager - if drivers are installed it will be in network adaptors - If there are no drivers installed then it will appear as a network controller under other devices in the hardware list and will have a yellow exclamation mark next to it.

I solved my problem, turns out my laptop has the Atheros card, not the suggested Intel card. I found a driver for Atheros from a different Acer Aspire model, and it seems to work fine.

Unable to detect any wifi when I know my wifi network is on, working, running, just fine! The other laptop in this has is getting wifi perfectly, so is my Android phone.. I tried downloading the wifi...


If it is three days old and no wifi you may not want to read this...;-]

There is a off on switch for the wifi either in front or along the side of the case. By default it is off. The wifi will show installed and working but won;t do anything. The hard part is finding that stupid switch. Followed by pretending you knew it was the problem all along. I'm chuckling at this as everyone myself included has done this. If it is anything other than the switch on a 3 day old laptop I'd put in in the box and return it.

it's the switch ;-]

I have just purchased an eMachine e350, I am having trouble connecting to wifi through the home router(it is on)...I am putting in the security key code but it is saying it is a mismatch...my fathers...


I understood your problem...first check your laptop WIFI is on/off....after switching it on it automatically search for WIFI connectivity arround you...

If your father's laptop find/access that WIFI device then you have problem in code authentication....best solution is that you should remove authentication check....before connecting ..

Second thing is that such a problem cause due to improper installation of of wirless broadcom drivers for your eMachine e350......so ultimately you should re-install wifi drivers from provided CD/DVD...

Restart your device it automatically detect hardware and functions properly...

I don't know how to activate Wifi in my pc aspire 5720Z.. Would you please help me


There is usually either a button or a slide switch that controls if the wifi is on or not. It is marked with an icon that looks like a tower with two curved bars coming out of each side. Be sure that switch is set to "on". Secondly, you will see a small icon in your system tray (bottom right hand side of your screen) that looks like two little computer monitors. You need to click on that and have it search for wireless networks. Once you find your wireless router simply click on that router and click connect.
