Having problems with your Acer Aspire 6930-6771 Laptop ?

Wirless connectivity problem

\015 We have an Acer laptop Aspire 6930. The wireless connection was working fine. However when we turned it on today and tried to connect it said the the wireless capablity was turned off. It is a Vista software. When we try to go through the Control Panel to fix it, the screen to turn on wireless does not allow us to click on the option to connect. It shows in in grey. Is there a function key or switch that we may have accidently hit that would turn it back on?\015

Answers :

What qualifies you people to write responses? The switch for the 6930 is located just above the NumLock key. It actually looks like an LED indicator of a satellite dish, but it's not. It's the button for the WiFi enable/disable. Push it hard...
There should be a button or slider on the inside right near the screen that will light up orange when you press/slide it. This button turns on and off the wifi capability.

If it's anything like my Aspire 5920, the button will have a picture of a planet similar to Saturn. The light may blink orange instead of a steady glow, this is normal. You may get a message on the screen saying "Wifi on" or similar.

Hope this helps.
