Function key to turn on/off wireless connection for most laptop is FN+F5 but you need to make sure that your wireless switch is on before the function key works.

Wireless switch is on the sides of the laptop, it looks like a toggle switch and you just need to slide it to the right.

Hope this help, Thank you for using Fixya.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Press the green "e" button that is located in the top left hand corner of your keyboard to launch the Acer Empowering Technology toolbar. This toolbar will allow you to configure Internet connections, set up wireless connections, manage power levels, project your screen for presentations, set up a password to secure your computer files, and perform a system recovery.

Turn on your wireless Internet feature by pressing the key that is located to the left of the globe button at the top of your keyboard. When wireless Internet is enabled this button will be lit. To disable wireless Internet press the button again and light will go off

This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.

Where is the wireless switch on a Acer Aspire 5735Z? I want to switch it ON


On the Aspire 5735Z, the WLAN button is on the far right side of where your laptop's power button is. That strip of buttons and lights above the keyboard area. The farthest button to the right is the wireless power button.

Aspire 6930 wireless button not working


Without any wireless networks available, using your computer wirelessly is most pointless. If you want to set up a wireless access point in your home you need a wireless router, connected to Internet.

Funtion F2


Look for a button that looks like a satelite dish. Its usually flashing when you're connected through wireless. It's probably close to the power button. Push it.

Acer aspire lost internet connection how do i connect


Look on the Function keys on the keyboard (the F1 through F12 keys) Do you see a wireless icon on one of the keys? If you do, then look for a Function (Fn) key on the keyboard. Press and hold Fn, while holding Fn, press the funtion key with the wireless icon (example: the wireless icon is on the F2 key; press and hold the Fn key, while holding the Fn key, press F2, release both keys).
