SOURCE: Wi-Fi drivers for Acer Aspire 4710Z for linux

The drivers for Windows can be used if no specific Linux drivers exist. There's a program within Linux called NDisWrapper which is designed to use the drivers provided for Windows XP in Linux. Refer to your particular distribution of Linux for the details on how to set up NDisWrapper from within your distribution (I've only done it in Ubuntu so have no experience of other distros)

First you need to make sure the Wireless drivers are installed in the computer, aswell the Acer Related utilities. Then Most acer laptops have a button on one of the sides or on the top of the laptop to turn on the wireless.

To find out if you have the acer related programs installed, try pressing some of the buttons on the top of the laptop, that are NOT apart of the keyboard, they should open up acer or related programs, if noting happens the programs are not installed, one of the buttons is likely to turn on the wireless.

To check if the wireless drivers are installed press start -> run -> type: msinfo32 (OR press down the windows key and press R, then let go and type msinfo32 into the run menu that comes up and click OK)

On the program, left side, open up components from the + next to it, then find Problem devices from the list and click on it, on the right you will see a list of devices that are not installed or not working.

If the list is empty, everything is properly installed. and you should be able to get your wireless to turn on by pressing on the wireless button on the laptop, and then use your computer to connect to a wireless network.


If you need further assistance let me know.

How can I get my acer aspire one mini laptop to access 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.

I cant get wi-fi on my acer 5742-7620 dont know what username or password and defult means or how to get an ip addres or even my pin number is or what networks im looking for i live in winkleman arizona


Rachael,

YYou need the SSID (network name) and password of the wireless network you are trying to connect to. If you don't have this information, there is a 99% chance you will not be able to connect. If you don't have access to a wireless network, go to any computer store and buy a wireless router to connect to your home network. The login information for the router will be included.
