This seems to be a problem specific to Acer laptops. I have a 7540-1284 at least once a week the wireless light goes out and I lose my connection. And it insists on trying to connect thru wired means. The prompt always pops up. The only way I have found to re-connect my wireless (so the light comes back on) is to restart the system. Even then, sometimes restart wn't do the trick and I have to go thru Safe Mode and do a self diag. Then it lights up and comes back on.

Most laptops have an external switch to turn on the wireless adapter. The ones that don't have to be turned on in the setup screen. If this adapter is on in the setup screen, then make sure that your driver is installed and that the adapter is enabled in the device manager. If this does not work then your adapter has gone bad. Of course never discount the possibility of a virus.

Is Acer Aspire 4720z equipped with a built in blue tooth device


The quickest and easiest way i have found is to press the Fn button + the one that turns on your wireless networking if you have one.

But i looked up your system and it says it comes with blue tooth.

Broadband speed slower with intel pro 2200bg wireless


First, download the latest driver from http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=1637 by selecting your operating system. After downloading run the setup and follow all instructions. Typically these issues are just a driver problem.

Please let me know if this solves your problem.

Thanks,
Adam

Wireless network found


If it cannot find any networks, check to see if there is a wireless on/off switch on the computer - look carefully some are well hidden. The switch turns the antenna on and off but windows still detects the network adapter and thinks everything is ok.
