Question about Acer Aspire 5600 Series 5630-6951 Laptop
Posted by Anonymous on
Yes there is an oblong button. Under XP the button lights up and the wireless adapter works fine. Under Vista the button does not light up and the wireless network does not work. Have tried pressing the button but nothing. The wireless adapter is present and according to device manager is working however when I try to activate a windows help box pops up and tells me I need to turn on the wireless adapter by pressing the button on the front of the computer. Doesn't work whatever I try but it works fine under XP

SOURCE: wireless not working
First, go to Windows security settings. I recently had a client with this exact problem, and it was her Windows firewall blocking the wireless adapter from "seeing" anything. If necessary, turn the firewall completely off to test.
Secondly, if that doesn't fix it, remove/uninstall the Wireless adapter completely from device manager. Reboot, let Windows attempt to reinstall the driver. If asked, point it to the driver files you've already installed. Reboot, and that should fix you up.
Let me know if this helps :)
