Unable to activate and detect wireless on acer laptop

Hi,

Im facing some wireless network problem. Sometimes I can connect without any problem but lately, it hasnt been working

1) Unable to switch on the wireless by pressing the button on the left side of keyboard
2) There should be a 'wireless...' at the network sharing center
3) There should be a 'intel...' driver at device manager

I have attached a picture to better explain what i meant above.

Would appreciate any help!

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums .. Have you tried draining the Power .. Remove the battery and unplug the Laptop hold down the Power button for five seconds .. If that does not work resetting the BIOS might work ... It is also possible that the Card had died ...

Hello sujun . In addition to above advice , I would consider running sfc ( system file checker ) : SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
and flushing and resetting the DNS : DNS Resolver Cache - Flush and Reset in Windows
Good luck in this issue.. Please post back for further advice and results of advice so far so that we may further assist you.

Hi, thank you. Right now, my wireless is working, but sometimes it just doesnt work and sometimes it will just get disabled out of a sudden. Speaking of battery, when my battery is charging/or not charging, it kept saying 'consider replacing your battery' with a red cross at the battery icon.

How do i reset the BIOS? Im guessing its the card problem.

You need to replace your Battery .. I would leave the Bios alone it is unlikely to help any .. Reboot your Laptop and do another System Scan and Post the Results please ...

If the battery issue is resolved and still having Wi-Fi problems consider disabling the Wireless in the BIOS then adding one of the USB Wireless adapters. I replaced the Wireless in my Dell Latitude D810 and it still gave problems so I got an AirLink 'nano' adapter and have had no problems since, not expensive.
