Locate the Wireless LAN switch located on the front of your Acer Notebook. This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look (((•))) Make sure its pressed on. Move the switch to the right to turn on Wireless connections. Right-click the network icon located on the system tray next to the clock. You should see a list of available wireless networks.

Power on the Acer Aspire laptop. Right-click the wireless Internet icon in the lower right corner of the desktop. Select "Enable" from the pull-down menu. Right-click the wireless icon again. Select to view all available wireless networks in the area. Momentarily a window appears with all of the available Wi-Fi networks. Select the Wi-Fi network you want to connect to, then type in the password (if required). Click "Connect," and your Acer Aspire computer connects to the Internet. Hope this helps.
For OS XP Start) ->Control Panel(Category View )->Network & Internet Connections ->Network Connections ->Select your wireless NIC icon and right click on it, then make sure it is enabled.
For OS Vista or Win 7 Navigate to your wireless network card properties and make sure it is enabled; Start -> control panel -> network and internet (or network and sharing) -> network options -> manage network connections then select your wireless NIC icon and right click on it, then make sure it is enabled.
Be sure that your wireless NIC(adapter) switch did not get turned off i.e. on certain laptop/notebook models
First go to the control panel > device manager (In XP the manager is in the System folder). Scroll down to network adapters, open it and look at the adapters listed....there should be two, one should be an ethernet card and the other a wireless or WLAN card. Look to see if there are yellow icons by their names. This usualy indicates a problem with either the card or the drivers running them. If they do not have yellow trouble symbols by them, then make sure the wireless switch is turned on either by switch on the outside of the laptop or by an Fn key combination. In the case of your laptop, the switches were optional, but just in case look on the front edge of your laptop, by the audio jacks on the left side should be your wlan switch, make sure it is in the "on" position. If there are yellow icons by the wireless, try right clicking on the adapter and uninstalling it. Then reboot, make sure you are connected to the internet via ethernet cable, you will want to let windows search windows update for a new driver when it reinstalls the device upon rebooting. See if that takes care of the problem. Also, if you have changed the way your system boots like say "selective startup" through the msconfig command, that may need to be temp. changed until this is cleared up, then you can go back to it.
If there isnt a button on the laptop to switch it on and off, then the easiest way to turn it off is to disable the wireless network adapter.
To do this, open Control Panel and double click Network Connections.
This will then show your wireless and ethernet adapters as icons.
Right click on the wireless adapter and then select "disable".
Your wireless adapter should now show as disabled.
If in the future you want to turn it back on, do the same again but select "enable".
Ok, i dont know exaclty how to do this, but look for a wireless icon, or something that looks like a wireless representation on the F keys. ex: "F10, F11". Press FN and that key to turn on\off your adapter.
Wish i could help more,
The following solution has worked for me: - Right-click "My computer" on the start menu, and select "Properties" - Go to the "Hardware" tab, and select "Device Manager" - Check if the wireless adapter is listed under "Network adapters" - If it's not listed, right-click and select "Scan for hardware changes"
With any luck, the wireless adapter should be detected, and the drivers installed.
I believe that you can turn these functions on and off via the Network Connections that you can access from the control panel.
In Windows XP: Click on START button Select Control Panel Click on Network Connections
In Windows Vista: Click on START button Select Control Panel Select Network and Internet Select Network and Sharing Center In left panel, select Manage Network Connections
Once here, you should see your wireless adapter and your bluetooth adapter. If you Right-Click on either connection, a menu will pop up and you can choose to Enable or Disable the connection without the button on the front of your computer.
