There is a button in the middle-front of your laptop that will turn on wifi. It has an image of two ovals and a stick on it.
For more information, I have provided a link to the manual for your model below. Information about the wifi switch is located on page seven, specifically number seven on that page.

You failed to mention which model number that Ferrari is, fortunately there is a common answer to this question: From aall that I have had here in the shop and what I can see at the Acer Web-Site: Acer only seems to place their Wi-Fi on/off buttons in one of two places:

  1. Above your key board (This is most likely) Above your Function keys (F1. F2, F3, etc.). It's more likely going to be to the far right and may not look like a button, but more like an LED indicator lamp sort of looks like ((i) the letter "i" with brakets. Just touch it an it'll light up (Acer is probably a blue or amber lamp) when the lamp is on, your Wi-Fi is on...
  2. The other place that Acer puts their Wi-Fi Buttons (Slide Switch) on the front edge. If you fold up your laptop, like a book, (Hinged Edge in Your hands - like a school book ) take a good look at the edge (where you open the lid from) that button would not be on the screen edge.. Look on the keyboard edge (the edge facing your belly if you were to have it on your lap) . That should have a lamp also.

I want to know if iam obliged to have *linksys router *to running:acer 5532portable? thank you very much! cecilia


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Obligated? That's a pretty strong word. I take it that you are referring to accessing your router with your Acer via Wi-Fi? If that's what you are asking, then the answer is, No. You are not obligated.

Your Acer has wireless-N Wi-Fi. So, it will connect to any router (Wi-Fi Hotspot) that has security turned off. (Read: any wireless router)

There's a great program all of us use to locate Wi-Fi Hotspots. And, it's free. Simply download it to your Acer - install the program - then reboot. It works almost automatically.

The program places a small 'Radar' screen on your laptop's desktop. The screen shows the direction where a Wi-Fi signal has been located. If there are multiple hotspots, it will lock onto the one with the best signal and then automatically connect you.

Ferrari 1000 LCD failer


Hi, Your post "Would a failed Inverter on an Acer Ferrari 1000 cause the system to not recognize the installed LCD?" No,the inverter only provides the high freq high volt for the backlight. Monitor/LCD recognition is part of your video/display controller. Pls check your video drivers (ATI Radeon Xpress 1150). Also your Default Monitor Properties. Hope this gives you some idea, Good luck and pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.

I have acer 4720 Z laptop and i want to know how to turn on its wi fi property? i have wi fi availablity in my zone....


Hello

It's one of the long, thin buttons on the very front of the laptop. It's easy to accidentally turn it on/off with your belt buckle.

The screen should flash "Wireless Enabled" in big green letters when you hit it.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
