ALSO MAKE SURE YOU TURNED THE WIRELESS KEY ON WHICH SHOULD BE NEAR THE KEYBOARD OR IN FRONT OF THE KEYBOARD.

Please go to Device Manager and expand the "Network Adaptors" and take a pic so we know which kind of wireless adaptor you have.

You can also left click the wireless adaptor under network and click "uninstall". Afterwards click on Action on top and click Scan for hardware changes. This will automatically re-install the wireless adaptor for you if you already have the right driver installed in the first place. If you don't than I can find the driver for as long as you send me the pic of the Device Manager.

Did you read my last post , I was able to get it connected with the LAN cable, but wireless is still not working . UsernameIssues is helping me with the current situation.

I did read the last post and that's why im suggesting to take another pic of the device manger since the PCI Modem is mostly likely for the wireless card so that's why I want to double check but you should expand the network adaptors in the device manager which can tell us more about the adaptor that's already installed and the adaptor that is not installed.

this info will also help usernameissues as well.

@FalikAlfonse,
The PCI Modem is most likely just that - a dial up modem.
You can see this system specs here:
Acer Aspire 3000 Specs - Laptops - CNET Reviews

The OP stated in post #28 that there are no yellow triangles under the network section within device manager. Branches that have a problem (or a disabled component) should automatically expand and I doubt that the OP closed the branch for the Network adapters.

More importantly, there is a wireless network adapter shown in the image in the very first post. If the wireless network driver was missing, the wireless network adapter would not be listed on that screen. I attempted to make that point in this post. Please correct me if I'm wrong on that.

I hope that I've not insulted you or discouraged you from helping others in the forum. Please hang around and help those that you can.


@raiden92,
Now that you can get the computer online via a LAN cable, any future request for screenshots should be posted this way: Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums There are forum members that will not visit images hosted elsewhere [to see a larger view] (e.g. imageshack).

This might be the user's guide for the computer that we are discussing:

FalikAlfonse mentioned a good point. If you have the optional button on the front panel that turns off the wireless radio, then please turn that on. (Item 5 on page 10 of the user's guide.)

Please install all Windows updates (including Service Pack 3) while connected to the internet via the LAN cable. Once you complete that, try the steps in this video.

Thank You Man , It worked, it actually found the wireless networks. I appreciate all the help. I just had to turn on the button for the wireless network and then follow the guide off the video.
