Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook

1 Answer

Hi I have a refurbished acer travelmate 4500 series just received. the wireless button is at the front, the led does not appear to work but in the control panel it says that wireless is working. I cannot work out how to get on the internet....I have never had this problem connecting any other laptop to my wireless. I am not sure if there is a problem with the laptop or not?

As far as I am aware, the LED is wired directly across the supply to the WiFi board and I would conclude from that, that it is faulty. Possibly the switch actuator is the wrong side of the switch? I would get it replaced or repaired whilst it is "Out of the box".
Hope that gives you an idea.

The Acer Travelmate 4502LMi Notebook PC is one of the TravelMate 4500 series of Notebook PC's.

This is Acer Support > TravelMate 4500 series of Notebook PC's manual download page,

http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/notebook/0000/Acer/TravelMate4500/TravelMate4500ul.shtml

Left-click on -
TravelMate 2300 Users Guide.
It is for the TravelMate 2300, 4000, and 4500 series of Notebook PC's, and is in English.

[This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it which uses PDF files.
I would recommend however, upgrading to Adobe Reader X (10), if the computer you are using does not have it.

It may take up to 30 seconds before you see the first page, and additional time to fully download the file. There is a way to save this PDF document to your computer. This way you can burn it to a CD disk for safekeeping, and delete it from the computer to save harddrive space.

If you do not know how, and wish to, please post in a Comment ]

At the top of the PDF file is the page number box. It is to the left of the blue Down Arrow.
Go to Page 23.

[You can use the blue Down Arrow to go to Page 23, or

1) Put your mouse cursor in the page number box. Left-click once
2) Type 23
3) Press the Enter key ]

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

If this will still not turn the switch on, try to go to the network connection / network and sharing center. right click on wirless network connection and click diagnose,
then it will prompt you to turn on the switch. Just click on "turn switch on" then windows will ne the one who will on the wireless switch.

Check your wireless antenna switch which is likely a button on the front of the machine, easily bumped while in use and would appear as though no connections are showing.
