The wireless switch is on the front edge of the computer.
There are 2 little slider switches to the left of the external mic,phone,aux sockets.
The switch that is the right hand of the two, is the wireless switch. (the one on the left is for bluetooth)
It is a momentary action switch, when you slide it to the left, it springs back.
When you slide it to the left, an orange light to the left of the switch should come on, also a green message appears briefly at the bottom of the screen.
To turn it off, slide it again, to the left and the light on the switch should turn off.

Where is the wireless button located on the Acer Aspire 5600, how do I turn it on


If there isn't a small button on your laptop, then see if any button on your laptop has a "blue-ish" colored icon that might be Wireless. Pressing FN and that button should activate it.

Please help i cant turn my wifi switch on on the front of my lab top. its an acer aspire 5100


If you still have the CD then I would re-install ACER’s launch manager.
It has the setting you’ll need to active the WIRELESS button.
If not you should be able to download it from ACER.

How do i switch my acer aspire laptop 5315-2513 to wireless?


At the top of your key board right below the power button, there is a row of hotkeys the far left one is the wireless button. Press that and the wireless should be turned on.

For example, F10 is the switch for your wireless, you may press Fn + F10 and you will see a pop-up balloon saying that your wireless is now enabled.

My wireless is gone, and does not show up in device manager


If your wireless adapter is not appearing in Device manager open the cover on the bottom of the lap top and make sure the wireless card is properly connected, next look for an external switch that might have been accidentally turned off. If everything is good then you may want to try a new wireless card for the PCMCIA Slot.

Acer 5100 wireless inbuilt adapter not working ?


Hello,

Double check that the wireless is switched on.. there is a slide switch at the front of the laptop next to the power lights, if it's on you should see an orange light on the front. As for the speakers, try holding Fn and the up arrow, this turns up the volume. Also check it's not muted, Press Fn F8 if you want to try this.

I hope this helps
