Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Wifi Switch I just puchased an acer aspire 5335-2238. There was no manual in the box and all I can find online is the ''quick guide'' I was using wifi until it told me I was not connected to wifi. The message told me here is a switch I need to change. Where is the switch. Is it a function key? I think I've tried all of them. Is there an actual switch on the laptop? Help please!


Answers :

Go to Start, All Programs, Empowering Technology, Acer eNet Management. If you have and Empowering Technology icon on your desktop you can click on that too.

This will open the Acer eNet Management main page.

Make sure your WLAN is set to ON.

Be sure to click on save if you change anything.
Usually there is an actual switch on the laptop.

Take a look all around the sides of the laptop. Sometimes it's in the front, sometimes on the side.

Just look very carefully and I"m sure you'll find it.

If not, let me know and I'll give you some other ideas.

Best of luck!
