Usually a hardware switch is your culprit. On the Acer Aspire 5520 the "easy launch buttons" include an enable/disable for the wireless LAN. It is up above the keyboard and unless it has been reprogrammed press the 2nd key from the left on the application buttons (looks like a satellite)Windows tells me that wireless has been turned - b137ae8.png

Can not turn on my wireless swith


you may wanna try this:

To turn your wireless back on: Click on the internet icon at the bottom right corner of your taskbar. Open "Network and Sharing Center". Click "Manage Network Connections" on top right of the Network and Sharing Center Right-click on your wireless network and then click "Diagnose" If your wireless is off, it should give you the option to turn it back on. This is different than the other "diagnose" functions where it simply tells you to turn it back on because this one actually turns your wireless back on for you. You should then see the orange flashing light on your keyboard and your wireless should be back up and running again.

or

- remove the battery and charger (everything connected to the pc) then press the power button for 1 minute..
- plug back in the charger
- after few secs try to turn it on and boot it normally

hope this helps :D

Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): Unknown error I get this message everytime I try to go to a site "itservices.pvcc.edu


For Windows users, go to Device Manager/Network Adapters/Atheros AR5007EG, and change the power management from Maximum to either normal or off. This helps some users but doesn't seem to help everyone.
With AC power disconnected, still had connection problems when changing power management to 'normal'. I recommend changing the Atheros power management to 'off'.

Another solution that seems to help some is to update the drivers for Atheros WLAN-card (on Windows).

If you need to conserve power, you can turn 'off' the 'wireless' by sliding the momentary switch at the front of the PC (near the wireless LED indicators) to the right once. To turn the wireless back 'on', slide the switch to the right again. An indication on the LCD will tell you if the wireless is 'enabled' or 'disabled' every time you slide the switch. I hope this helped vote

Recently downgraded to windows xp from vista, Atheros wireless will not turn on automaticcal when computer is restarted. At the windows loading screen, the wireless light turns blue for 3 seconds and then...


I had this problem too. You need the HP Wireless Assistant. Download it here- ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp36501-37000/sp36770.exe

Once installed, open the HP Wireless Assistant and click Properties button. Check the box next to "Independent controls for installed wireless devices." Then click "Turn All On" button. On next boot it will be enabled!

Motorola wireless adapter, Blue Screen Of Death


1. Uninstall the drivers for the card.
1.5 Turn pc off.
2. Unplug the card.
2.5 Turn on pc. Make sure the pc does not detect the wireless adaptor.
3. Turn pc off again.
3.5 install adapter then turn pc back on.
4. When windows tells you it has found new hardware, click the option to specify your own location for the dirver, then point to the cd that came with the card.

If all this still does not fix it, the you know its the adapter and to take it back.

This same solution works for any new card added to a computer. I have seen this same problem with the old scuzzy cards at work.
