How to turn on Wireless adaptor on Acer?

Hello I've read many threads about Acer laptops, but I couldn't turn on my Wi-Fi adaptor. I've got Acer TravelMate C110 and when I installed Windows 7 (Home Premium 32bit) I can't turn on my Wireless Network. I've installed Launch Manager from Acer's site and it says that Wireless is always on, but it really isn't :/ The external button don't work either. Please help!
Thanks (:

Hello Glorinka

I am presuming the laptop came with xp originally and you installed windows 7 to it as on the acer website the only drivers for that model are xp drivers - Acer Support: Downloads & Support Documents - Notebook / TravelMate / TravelMate C110
It sounds like a driver related issue, you are going to have to search around for some windows 7 compatible drivers either from windows update or the acer website, or install in compatibility mode as there are no windows 7 drivers displayed for that model on acers site.

I've downloaded drivers for Windows 7 but Acer Laptops have external Wireless/Bluetooth button that doesn't work and practically I don't have any Wireless adapter on my laptop.
FenrirFangz - I don't have wireless network there, only Local Area Connection that wants cable :/

The launch manager you installed should control all the external buttons so it may be the driver for that that's not working correctly. Try reinstalling or find another compatible driver for it. Where did you get your windows 7 drivers from.
