Re: my acer aspire 5050's wifi doesnt work...
Please Check in device manager, is there any problem with the driver ?
if there is a problem with driver, try to download driver from www.acerpanam.com and install it.
if there isnot any problem, try to enable wireless from the switch (close to external audio port)

If You downloaded the correct wifi drivers and still didn't get wireless...
Choose a different series... Try acer aspire 3000 wifidrivers... then Acer Aspire 5000 wifi drivers, if still no luck... Choose the acer ferrari 3000 wifi driver.. or the acer travelmate 5530 wifi driver/..
I've had alot of Acer Aspire models.. including yours... and I too would have to jump around to different models to get all correct drivers,...
having had and worked on a quite a few laptops, most acers that have bluetooth software is on the laptop it doesnt mean it is fitted with bluetooth. the review site for that laptop doesnt say it is fitted for it. usually windows will have its own bluetooth control cente (xp pro sp2, vista) once there is a device installed. if you cant find any way to start bluetooth and have a device installed. check control pannel for a bluetooth icon.
hi there, i have a new acer aspire 5052, i have installed windows xp, the problem is that cannot install bluetooth, i get errors like "Device not found" and when i switch on the bluetooth button, the display shows "no device" your help will be greatly appreciated
