    th power source (remove the battery if your modem has a battery backup). 2) Wait for at least 30 seconds. 3) Plug your wireless router and modem back into the power source again (put the battery back to the modem). 4) On your device, reconnect to your WiFi network

    Thanks for reply Balu, but Im not at home so I cannot do that.

    It just doesnt find any available wifi connections, 
    But with the phone I can connect to the wifi.

    It's probably your wireless adapter. Mine has the same issue, after 4 months of purchase. Way to go Acer!

    It also says:

    "Turn on wireless capatibility

    Use the switch on the front or side of the computer, or function keys if available, to enable wireless capatibility on this computer."


    I have no switch, while Fn+F3 just turns on/off the airplane mode.


    At home i use cable to connect to internet, my laptop wifi wirked in the past.

    What is this now?

    I'm wondering if you might be able to replace this wifi adapter with another one. I personally use a USB wireless one as I have been fed up with the use of this internal card that just drops network all the time.
    But if I could purchase another card on ebay and replace it; that would be ideal.
