    drivers

    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..... support.acer-euro.com/dri…tml
    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.....driverstock.com/Ace…tml

    Hope this helps?
