Usually the wlan button is off because you're WLAN is not on, you need to locate this button and press it to enable your WLAN. The button is usually located on either the upper left or upper right corner of your keyboard. You will know if you hit the correct button because you'll get a pop up on the lower left corner of your screen saying that WLAN is on.

You can click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > Run > on the Run Window type in services.msc > press enter > then scroll and look for WLAN Configuration > it has a start or stop option, make sure that the button start is grayed out or press on start to enable wlan

you sould be getting a message again telling you that wlan is enable or already on

Hope this help you a bit. Have a great day

Acer aspire 5310 Wireless LAN indicator light on windows 7


That sort of comes with a OS upgrade, in upgrades from XP to Win 7, I'm supprised that's the only thing that is a issue. I upgraded a old gateway (2005) from XP to Win 7 Pro N 64bit. and had some hardware issues to deal with. Consider yourself lucky. You can get use to it or search endlessly for a fix. Try the Acer forums, you may run across the issue.

Wireless button, won't come on. Stays the orange color.


This could be caused by one of the following issues:

WLAN is disabled in the BIOS. Check BIOS that WLAN is enabled. Update to the latest BIOS if not already:

Hi i have a u135 and it hasbuilt in blue tooth but i donot know how to activate could u help


Not sure if this will work for your model but its worth a try. Copied from MSI support faq website
You have to press the WLAN button located right next to the power button in order to enable/disable the Bluetooth function. Press WLAN button once, Enable WLAN. Press WLAN button twice, Enable Bluetooth. Press WLAN button thrice, Enable both WLAN and Bluetooth. Press WLAN button four times, Disable both WLAN and Bluetooth.

No lights(lits)on WLAN-No acces from the computer


WLAN light will give you the status of your wireless connection. If WLAN light is off, it might be a possibility that wireless has been turned off or worse is the device had stopped broadcasting a wireless signal. you may try using 192.168.1.1 to get into the setup page of the device to check if wireless has been disabled.

Wlan disabled


If you have vista click the start button and in the start search type "hp wireless assistant". It should show up in your list while you type it. Click on it. Once the assistant box shows up, click on "properties". A "settings" box should show up. The main one you need here is "independant controls for installed wireless device". Check that box. The other ones are icons and indicators that you can check at your discretion. If in doubt, check them all. Hit the "apply" button. Then in the upper right hand side of the box hit the button that says "turn on". This should activate the device and if you have a light up indicator on your computer, it should change color or light up. That should do it. Kind of weird how it gets to that point.
