    Usually means the wireless lan adapter is not switched on and has to be done so with the Fn + F8 key, unfotunately as I've just reformatted my 6100 I dont have the driver for the keyboard so I cant use the Fn keys. Trying to get drivers for parts of 6100 is soooo frustrating.

    My Fn and Function keys don't seem to work. I know the pc was formatted by previous owner, but I cannot find the drivers to make the keyboard work properly now. Does anyone know where I can find these drivers??

Hi masif - please don't rate this yet! Unplug your modem and router. After 60 seconds plug in your modem. After the modem lights return to normal, plug in your router. Give it 15 seconds and then try it. Let me know what happens.

My friend gave me a windows embedded ce 6.0 netbook, how do I log in onto my wifi?


Select Connections from the tabs across the bottom. Select WiFi. Find your own wifi from the list of available networks (SSIDs) and select and hold it. Then select Connect. In the next screen, make sure The Internet is selected and click Next. On the Configure Network Authentication screen, make sure Authentication is set to Open and Data Encryption is Disabled and click Next. On the next screen, click Finish. This will bring you back to the Configure Wireless Networks screen. Wait a few moments while your phone connects. Once complete, the status will display as Connected. Click ok from the top right section of the screen then close the Settings window with the x in the top-right section of the screen. Once you've joined a WiFi network manually, your smartphone automatically joins it whenever the network is in range. If more than one previously used network is in range, your pc joins the one last used.

How to turn ON WLAN?


Here are some essential step that you have to follow.
Connecting to a WLAN

To connect to the WLAN, follow these steps:
1. Be sure that the WLAN device is on (the wireless light is white). If the wireless light is amber, press
the wireless action key (f12).
2. Click the network icon in the notification area, at the far right of the taskbar.
3. Select your WLAN from the list.
4. Click Connect.
If the network is a security-enabled WLAN, you are prompted to enter a network security key, which
is a security code. Enter the code, and then click OK to complete the connection.
NOTE: If no WLANs are listed, you are out of range of a wireless router or access point.
NOTE: If you do not see the network you want to connect to, click Open Network and Sharing
Center, and then click Set up a new connection or network. A list of options is displayed. You
can choose to manually search for and connect to a network or to create a new network connection.
After the connection is made, place the mouse pointer over the network icon in the notification area, at
the far right of the taskbar, to verify the name and status of the connection.

All netbooks have both the wired and wireless networking capability built-in. The Acer Aspire One AOA 150 Model No. ZG5 (8.9" screen) netbook has a RJ-45 jack on its left side for wired 10/100 Ethernet. On right-most part of its front is a slide switch to toggle enabling/disabling of the built-in 802.11b/g WLAN for wireless connectivity to WiFi. Click on the following link for a detailed description... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspire_one
Pushing the wireless slide switch to the right momentarily will cause either Wireless LAN Enabled or Wireless LAN Disabled in large green letters to appear momentarily at the bottom middle of the screen. Once enabled, look at the Taskbar at the bottom right of the desktop and click on the little terminal icon with ))) and a little red x beside it. This opens the Wireless Network Connection window and you would then do the following...
1. in Network Task sidebar click on the Refresh network list to update the wireless networks
2. in Choose a wireless network on the right side, click on an item in the list to select & hi-light it
3. click on the Connect button to get a pop-up window for Network key & Confirm network key
4. if unsecured network, the pop-up reminds you of the risks but you can Connect Anyway
5. in the pop-ups, you can click to either Connect (for secured), Connect Anyway, or Cancel
6. when connecting, another pop-up window appears with Waiting for the network
7. once connected, the selected network will move to the top of the network list
8. in the desktop's Taskbar, the little terminal icon with ))) will no longer have the little red x
9. right click on the icon to get a pop-up for the status and wireless connection management

I have a wireless connection but cannot open the browser. Another computer (laptop) is connecting fine on the same wireless.


If the Wireless Network Connection icon is at the bottom right of your Taskbar and has a red x, then right-click on the icon to bring up a pop-up window and in that window, left-click on View Available Wireless Networks. This will open a Wireless Network Connection window which will allow you to Choose a wireless network. If the window has the message "No wireless networks were found in range", then you will need to slide the spring-loaded switch at the right-front the netbook to the right momentarily and the message "Wireless LAN Enabled" should show in large green letters at the bottom of the screen. Then in the Wireless Network Connection window, left-click on "Refresh network list" item under Network Tasks. In about 10 seconds, a list of the wireless networks will be displayed which should include the name of your wireless access point (wireless router). Left-clicking on that list item will high-light it in blue. Now click on the connect button at the bottom-right of the window. If the list item has a lock symbol, a Wireless Network Connection pop-up will now show to ask you to "Type the key" otherwise for an unsecured or open access point, a connection should automatically occur without having to type any key. The Wireless Network Connection icon in the Taskbar should no longer have the red x and hovering the mouse cursor over it will show the Wireless Network Connection status. Hopefully, if this procedure has solved your problem, you should consider securing your access point to prevent unauthorized access of it. After securing, you will need to refresh the network list and then do a re-connect.

Wireless switch


Although the wireless switch on your Acer does turn on/off your wireless card, you will also need to make sure that your operating system (Windows) has the wireless card enabled.

Do the following:
  1. Go to Control Panel (Start -> Control Panel)
  2. Double-click Network Connections
  3. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection / WLAN (you can tell it is disabled if the icon is greyed)
    3dce7ab.jpg
  4. Click on "Enable" (if you see Disable, your network is already enabled)
You should check the bottom-right-hand area of your screen (in the menu bar) for your wireless icon. If this is not appearing, you'll have to go into Network Connections again and do the following:
  1. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection (your wireless network adapter)
  2. Select Properties
  3. Click the checkbox that says "Show icon in notification area when connected"
    685e49b.jpg
  4. Now click on the Wireless Networks tab (at the top of this dialogue box)
  5. Scan for a network and connect to it.

Wireless help please!


Make sure that the WLAN adapter is installed properly. Click on the start button then right click My Computer icon, select properties, go to Hardware tab, click Device Manager button, click the + sign beside Network Adapters, check if you have your wireless adapter listed. If your adapter is not listed you need to reinstall the drivers for it.

Wlan disabled


If you have vista click the start button and in the start search type "hp wireless assistant". It should show up in your list while you type it. Click on it. Once the assistant box shows up, click on "properties". A "settings" box should show up. The main one you need here is "independant controls for installed wireless device". Check that box. The other ones are icons and indicators that you can check at your discretion. If in doubt, check them all. Hit the "apply" button. Then in the upper right hand side of the box hit the button that says "turn on". This should activate the device and if you have a light up indicator on your computer, it should change color or light up. That should do it. Kind of weird how it gets to that point.
