    The wireless connection of the device works, but frequently disconnects. The solid orange wireless error light is always on unless it's put into airplane mode.

Well i had to do a total reset on my 5050 - but its exactly the same problem as yours! brought it back to soundstore but they said its something to do with your bios malfunctioning - ask about that at your local comp store

Which is the wireless network connection function key on acer aspire 3004 laptop? Thanks

It seems to be an optional function. Anyway, the Wireless button (and corresponding indicator light) should be on the front part of your notebook, at the left side of the line-in jack. By the way, if you happen to miss its user guide, feel free to download it from this location.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.

Wireless switched off wont connect

On the side edge or on the front edge of the laptop there should be a wireless switch or a clear button, when you activate it the wireless light should light up amber/orange.

Wirless connectivity problem

What qualifies you people to write responses? The switch for the 6930 is located just above the NumLock key. It actually looks like an LED indicator of a satellite dish, but it's not. It's the button for the WiFi enable/disable. Push it hard...

Wireless Connection

I had this problem when I first got my laptop!
I have the same brand & everything as you, so this should work.!

the speakers on the computer are on the side of the laptop, under neath the mouse pad & everything.. (there on the side where when your computer is on, theres a little light thats green, and when its charging, theres a orange light on.)

inbetween the two speakers, there are also the plug ins for headphones & microphone. to the left of those plug ins, there are two slide-able buttons. one for blue tooth, and the other for wireless. the wireless one is on the right. when the wireless is on, the button has an orange light beside it. when off, there is no light. there is an icon beside the button that looks like a pole with a ring around it.
turn your computer on & slide the button, give it a minute to search for the networks & it'll be up & running. i hope i could help(:
