I just bought an acer 4720 laptop, and i am trying to hook up to a wireless network, but i really don't know what i'm doing. do i need a subscription? is it safe to use an unsecured network so long as i have all the firewall, antivirus, spyware, etc?

You need to have a wireless network in range. AV and firewall software are a good idea. To connect to a wireless network you should have a little icon that looks like a monitor with )) beside of it on your task bar. Right click on it then select view avaible wireless networks. then select a unsecured network, wait for it to connect and then surf on.

My Acer Aspire 4720 PC Notebook has lost its wireless capability. How can i fix it?


Try to switch it back on. If this doesn't light up the indicator for Wifi, then the internal card for wifi may have a problem. However, try to 'restore' the computer to an earlier date, when the wifi worked. It might be a driver problem.

Good luck on this.

Check that you have entered the wireless security key onto the laptop, may be this that is not allowing connection.

Cannot locate wireless switch


Use the shortcut Windows Key + X from your desktop to access the windows mobility center. This will allow you to enable wireless networking and allow you to connect to your wireless router.

If you have any more questions or this solution doesn't work, please let me know and I will further investigate.

I don't have wireless network on acer aspire4715Z


The Aspire 4715 comes with Wireless OPTIONAL. Your system obviously wasn't bought with a pre-installed wirelss card. If you want to go wireless, you will need to buy a wireless card/adaptor seperately.

I just bought a 4720. Iy has windows vista. I also have an old Toshiba sattelite with windows xp. To connect to the internet the toshiba works every time. The new acer sometimes does but mostly does not....


You will have several problems to install Windows XP in a computer designed to use Vista. I personally don´t think it´s fair.
But your problem possibly is not related with the OS. Are you using a wireless router? If yes, the problem may be your 4720´s wireless adapter (probably internal). You can test it by using another wireless network (most malls, shopping centers, airport or hotels have avaiable public wireless internet access).
