Go into the Device Manager and check if any drivers still need installing.

Also check the laptop to see if there is a button that switches on the wireless function!

Sorry dozed off didn't quite understand that, all I can suggest is that if the drivers are installed and the card is enabled is there a switch on your laptop that enables or disables wireless?.

Go this site..... http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads_gd.html
select, notebook, aspire, then you model number, aspire 3690, all the drivers you need are there. There are 3 wireless lan drivers, the broadcom one will probably do it? No harm in installing all 3 tho?!

Also here.....http://www.driverstock.com/Acer-Aspire-3690-driver-download/4-21-12862/index.html

Hope this helps?
