    I see a lot of V3-731 owners having this problem. Wifi off and greyed ut in settings. What works for a lot of them is shut down the laptop. Start laptop hold Fn and as soon as you see the Acer logo tap F3.

    Did you upgrade to Windows 10?

    Yes,sometime ago but it worked fine. I am back to Windows 8 now, though might help if I go back to factory settings. Didn't help. Still no WiFi.

    Please someone help. I have an acer aspire be 731. I have had it for 7 years. And I have never been able to use it because the wifi has always been switched off. I really need it now. Nothing has worked. I've went through all the settings. I've tried connecting it with wires and broadband, but there is settings missing it seems. For instance, there is no setting for me to enable the wireless adapter under the network and internet connection on the control panel. It's a brand new laptop that only worked for a day, and then never again. Please help.
