Hi there are 3 ways to turn on and turn it off each way is unique so u may need to try all

1.) on the laptop to the font or under iit is a switch to turn the adapter on or off. Its there if you cant see it check you manual..

2.) there is a 2 key combination usually FN + F8 .. Fn is your function key.. and the proper F key F1 to F12 ,, the proper key has a wireless icon on it.

3.) acer has equiped wireless software with your machine it varies from different machines so i cant be sure which one. locate it and turn your wireless device on..

4.) click the wireless icon to the buttom right of your screen , and select turn on wireless device if it says turned off, or if it says its controlled by a different application locate and user your acer wireless manager located / installed on your system..

    ok to connect to the internet via a wireless access point or router.

    1.) click the wireless newtwork icon to the bottom right of the screen,
    2.) click connect to a network
    3.) click the network you want to connect to an click connect (or scan for new networks)
    4.) it will prompt for the network security key, keep that in hand (the same key you set up the wireless security with on your router)
    5.) you should now be connected.

    to connect via cable..
    1.) plug cable it to the wired port on router.

    Is that what you mean on the problem is deeper ??
