Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook
I had this problem when I first got my laptop!
I have the same brand & everything as you, so this should work.!
the speakers on the computer are on the side of the laptop, under neath the mouse pad & everything.. (there on the side where when your computer is on, theres a little light thats green, and when its charging, theres a orange light on.)
inbetween the two speakers, there are also the plug ins for headphones & microphone. to the left of those plug ins, there are two slide-able buttons. one for blue tooth, and the other for wireless. the wireless one is on the right. when the wireless is on, the button has an orange light beside it. when off, there is no light. there is an icon beside the button that looks like a pole with a ring around it.
turn your computer on & slide the button, give it a minute to search for the networks & it'll be up & running. i hope i could help(:

If you're using a Toshiba laptop and you can't figure out how to enable WiFi you probably aren't alone. Thankfully there are several approaches you can take from a hardware and Windows Operating System stance to turn on your wireless connection while making sure you can properly connect to a wireless network.
Difficulty: Easy Instructions
Look at the keyboard options on your laptop. You should see a button that looks like a small antenna. The button placement may vary from device to device. For instance, you may have a dedicated button or it may be placed much like the option circled in the picture to the left of this step.
Click on the "Windows Start Button" and Navigate to "Control Panel" then click on "Network Connections" or "Network and Sharing" depending on your version of Windows.
Right-click on your wireless connection icon once the "Network Connections" window opens. Choose "Enable" and left-click on that option with your mouse. Wait for the wireless connection to enable.
Alternatively you can try clicking on the " Windows Start Button" and then clicking on "Connect to," where you will click on "Show all connections." When the connection window opens up, you should right-click on "Wireless Network Connection" and then choose "Enable." Now right-click on "Wireless network connections" and then choose "View Available Wireless Networks" to see if your WiFi adapter is enabled.
Hope this was helpfull
