Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook
I have performed a clean install of Windows Vista Business on my Acer 5044 WLMi. Everything works ok apart from the wireless adapter. The driver is loaded correctly and working however the radio button does not light up and there is no software facility to enable it. I have downloaded and installed all of the necessary vista updates from the Acer website to no avail. The wireless adapter refuses to initialise and detect any networks. Fortunately I took a back up of the XP installation and when this is restored the wireless adapter works fine. The Laptop is an Acer Aspire 5044 WLMi (Couldn't find it in your pick list!!) Any ideas??
If you need a new laptop ac adapter, I suggest you could purchase one from http://www.batteryfast.com , which would shipping to you fast and the quality is satisfy satisfied.:)

Just come across this, I have an Acer 5633 and my built in Intel/Pro wireless adaptor is not working has all the latest drivers!
Does this appear to be a common problem with Acers built in adaptor or Vista?

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

Is the radio turned off? There should be a button or Fn button combination that allows you to turn your radio on and off. Try that.
