The switch for wireless is on the front, it has a symbol that looks like a satellitte dish next to it, It may have a led which should glow when enabled.

Hope this helps

Trying to activate my wireless connection for my acer acer aspire x1300 do I need a disk or can I press certain buttons to activate the wireless


The aspire Acer Aspire x1300 does not come standard with wireless. If you have added wireless capabilities, your hardware should have come with a disk containing drivers for your wireless device. If it didn't I would look up the manufacture's site and find the support or drivers download page.

Lost wireless capability


Why is there no lan? Did you somehow turn the wireless off? Are other computers able to connect to the wireless if so that means your wireless is probably off.

Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look on both sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

Some laptops will have a button to push that toggles the wireless. it might be located on either side or front or just above the keyboard.

If no other computers are able to connect then go to the wireless router and unplug it for 30 seconds, then plug it back up. If you have a modem and a router, you only want to unplug the wireless router.

Wheres the wireless switch on an acer espire m1201 pc?


Hi

Desktop PCs do not generally have wireless switches. These are usually only to be found on laptops, netbooks and some nettops.

It is unusual for mid-specification desktop PCs like yours to have a built-in wireless function.

So the answer is that there is no wireless switch.

You can make a desktop PC wireless enabled by adding either an internal PCI wireless card or plugging in an external USB Wireless Adapter (far simpler). With these devices and their drivers and software installed, you will see a wireless icon bottom right of screen. Right click on this icon > View Available Networks/Connect to a Network to find your router's signal > once you connect to your wireless router by entering the SSID (router name) and Network Key (encrypted access code), the PC will be able access the internet wirelessly.

Once it is wireless enabled. whenever you turn the PC on, you just wait for the wireless icon to indicate you are connected to the internet (usually a blue globe).

There will never be a need for a wireless switch.

I hope this helps.

M trying to activate my wireless connection for my acer x1200 do I need a disk or can I press certain buttons to activate the wireless


You should be able to see there might be an antenna on the back of your computer which is part of the wireless network adaptor. I checked the specification of your computer and did not see wireless card included. You may need to buy one internal wireless card or a USB wireless card to use wireless feature. You will need to install the driver and configure it to use a wireless access point on some of the wireless cards. Usually you can turn on wireless by using network connection or using the connect to item in the start menu if you are using Windows Vista.

Hi

The drivers for the Gigabit network controller for you Acer are fully available on Acer's website. You simply go to www.acer.com , select your region, then go to support and downloads, select your notebook model from the drop downs and then the driver you want and the operating system.

This is a copied direct link to the drivers page on the European website ....whether it will copy over correctly?? :
