It doesn't appear that there is a switch on the 1300. If it's telling you that you need to be sure the switch is on, then most likely you have the wrong driver for the wifi card in your machine. Open the small cover on the back of the machine and see which card you have. It should be either a Broadcom (BCM) 1350, 1370, 1470, or an Intell. Then use this link to download the proper driver, look under network. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INSPIRON1300/B130&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

You will need to uninstall the old driver before installing the new. If this doesn't work then it could be that the card has gone out.

Don't know how to connect to my home wifi


Connecting your Acer laptop to your home wireless network is fairly simple.
Before you begin you need to know the SSID broadcast name (Wi-Fi) network name and security passphrase (Wi-Fi network password).

Move the Wi-Fi switch to the "On" position.
Not all models have this switch.

Open the Windows Start menu and select "Connect To."
A list of available connections will appear.

Select "All" from the drop-down menu to view all available networks and connections within range.

Select the desired network and click "Connect."
Enter the security passphrase if prompted and click "Connect" again to join the network and gain wireless Internet access.

Acer 5100 will not connect to wireless


Things to Check:
1. Please check if the wireless switch on your laptop is ON?
2. Are you able to see your wireless network in the list of connections?

If the answer for both of the above is yes, then Turn OFF & Turn ON the Modem/Router.

Please delete all the connections that are stored on your laptop's wireless settings/Wireless connections and retry connecting to your network.

On your modem/router, please remove any security passwords and make the network accessible by any one any try connecting to the network.If the connection is successful, then reprogram the modem / router with a password.

Another easy fix to find if the fault is actually with your laptop is to go to a free public wireless hotspot and see if your laptop connects to their network.If it dd, its not your Laptop but your wireless modem/router.

Cant get internet. Wireless switch in front is switched on and it is lit up. When i do search for available networks there are none listed. It was working earlier today.


If the wireless switch is lit up, it indicates that the switch is ok.

Now you look at your taskbar and locate the icon for wireless networks. Point to it, and see the status, whether there availalble networks or not.

If there are, then click on the icon. This will give you a list of available networks. Just select a network of your choice and wait for it to connect.

If the connection is successful, then your ok. Otherwise, try connecting to other available networks.

Cannot the wireless internet setup


Hi kschmerer,

I understand that you are not able to setup the Wireless Network Connection in your Computer.
To fix this issue, please make sure that the Physical Wireless Switch on the Computer is turned ON and then try connecting the Computer to the Wirelss Network.

You can locate the Physical Wireless Switch on the front side of the Computer. Please move the switch toward right side to turn it ON.

Once the Physical Wireless Switch is turned ON, please try setting up the Wireless Network Connection.

If you are not able to to connect to Wireless Network Connection after switching on the Physical Wireless LAN Switch, try using the Wireless Switch Setting Utility.

To enable the Wireless Network Connection using the Wireless Device Switch Utility, please double-click the Wireless Device Switch icon on the right corner of the Taskbar. Then in the open Wireless Device Switch window, please click to check the box next to Enable 2.4Ghz Wireless LAN.

This should fix the issue.

Please post back if you have any questions or require further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Cant connect to 2wire dsl cant see network wirelessnot switched ?


firstly does it have a wireless indicator somewhere on the laptop?

most of the indicators located next to bluetooth switch and other indicates. once you identify the indicated then you can solve this problem.

check you wireless network settings. if not the device is disabled or drivers not installed.

if your device is ok, then you check the software for the wireless network. most computers do not indicate that the wireless device is working, try to install a wireless application driver for your laptop and try connecting it a wireless device to see if there is any connectivity.

thank you

Having problem connecting to internet. says everything is working properly. but the wireless switch is not connected.


Sometimes ,when you try to connect to a wireless network ,you have to give windows the "SSID"of the network. usually Windows will detect it automatically, but not always. you need to go to Control Panel, then find the place in control panel where you see the word network or networking, then click on "Set up a network connection"

Is there a manual shut off switch to disable the wireless search mode on an Acer laptop?


I assume you want to stop vista from automatically connecting to wireless networks other than yours.......try this:

Open Network and Sharing Center, click Manage wireless networks, click on your "home" network & make sure that Connect automatically when this network is in range is checked. Now do the same for any other connection that is listed but uncheck the Connect automatically when this network is in range.


Go to Start > Network > Network and Sharing Center
click Manage network connections under 'Tasks'
Right-click Wireless Network Connection
Select Properties.
In the Wireless Network Connection Properties dialogue box, click the
Wireless Networks tab.
Select other wireless network like "Y5ZONE", "PCCW" and click Properties
Click Connection tab
Uncheck the box "Connect when this network is in range"

Hope this helps.....
