Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

When I was cleaning my Acer Aspire 5517 I accidentally turned off the wifi. Well I have hit the button to turn it back on and it still will not let me look for a wireless signal again. I have tried restarting my computer and it will search for a signal for a few seconds and then switch back to acting like it can only use a wired connection!!!!! help!!!! thanks in advance becky Jo

Same problem with my 7540-1284. Only thing that is surefire is to restart in Safe Mode, let it run the self diag, and restart again in Normal mode. Otherwise there is no external way to restart wireless connection. Seems to be a prob particular to Acer laptops.

That is strange. Does the light for the wifi light up at all?
I have an Acer Aspire and that's one feature that always seemed to be fairly predictable.

Maybe, try to look manually for the available wifi connections through windows.

good luck to you.

My laptop (acer aspire 4930) wifi is not able to detect wireless networks. It has been working fine for 1.5 years but something has happened today that it is not able to detect the wireless connections.


Double check that the Wi-Fi didn't accidentally get turned off. There should be a button on your computer that turns it on and off or a fn key usually fn+f2. Try that first if that doesn't solve the issue try reinstalling your driver which can be found at the following site.

What qualifies you people to write responses? The switch for the 6930 is located just above the NumLock key. It actually looks like an LED indicator of a satellite dish, but it's not. It's the button for the WiFi enable/disable. Push it hard...
