Usually, the switch for the wireless connection on Acer laptops is located at the front edge, beside Bluetooth button or at the left side of your keyboard beside the Caps Lock key. Just look for a button or sliding switch that has a symbol or an icon that looks like a satellite dish.

You may download the manual of your Acer laptop on this link.

I have an acer aspire 5552-5898 and i am unable to enable the wifi even after hitting FN+F3 to turn it on


From what I can find on your notebook it looks as though there may be a physical switch for your wireless as well. Be sure that this switch/button is turned on prior to using the Function F3 keys to turn on your wireless.

Aspire 5410 connectivity problem


this could be because you have accidentally turned off your wireless...

there will either be a switch on the outside edge of the laptop case which you can use to switch it back on

OR

if you look at your keyboard, there maybe a "wireless" type icon on one of the "F" keys... if there is and its a certain coloor press it at the same time as the "fn" key on the keyboard...

some laptops have a physical button and some laptops have a button the keyboard that switches the wireless off

good luck and please rate this answer if it has helped

I am trying to connect to new acer laptop to my wireless network, but my acer empowering technology toolbar, located above my keyboard, does not seem to be working to allow me to connect to my wireless...


Hey

for this you gotta now the following:

1. ssid : this is the name of your access point (router)
2. key/passphrase: this is the network security key you configure your router with (if your router has a default configuration (the one that came with the device right out of the box which is not recommended) your key may be a blank key ... you simply don't have one set up.
3. the encryptation method: wep, wpa, wpa2. this goes again to how you have your router configured and if your don't have anything configured with your router in regards to encriptions (not recommeded) you may simply not have any encryptation that you need to select here.

important:
make sure your wireless adapter is working and is on:
your laptop may have a switch on the front to turn your wireless adapter on (i don't know what model of laptop you have so you may want to check the user manual that came with laptop to find the switch) or you may have to turn it within windows. (also check the user manual of your laptop)

now that you have the info needed and your adapter is on there are 2 ways to do this:

1. using your beloved acer empowering technology:
I found this that may guide you through the process of setting up your wireless connection
ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com/notebook/empowering_technology/acer_enet_management.pdf

look under the title: SETUP A NEW PROFILE and follow the instructions..

now if acer empowering does not work... you can try to setup your wireless connection with windows,

2. Using windows vista to setup your wireless connections:
I'm assuming you're using vista so here's a set of instructions with pictures you may want to take a loot at and follow

let me know how it went!
if problems.. post what you see and we'll try to give you hand. (please give as many details as possible)

My wireless system on my laptop is off how can I turn it on? No wireless found in range! Make sure your wireless switch is on how can I put the switch on?


Some laptops have a switch in front next to the wireless light or on the side.

Some laptops use an F key (my toshiba is F8) so to turn on the wireless I would have to turn the switch on in front and then "toggle" the Wireless on by pressing the FN and the F8 keys.

Wireless switch


The switch is located on the front of the notebook, an oblong plastic clear button which flashes orange when working, normally next to a bluetooth button, although this may not be installed.
