I have had a problem with my Acer 5050 Wifi's connection. After a clean install of XP, the Wifi indicator on the front of the unit was on. After I installed the driver for it, XP recognized the device, but then the Wifi light turned off, and I couldn't find any networks!
I uninstalled the driver and restarted, the light came back on, and after Windows booted and re-installed the driver, the Wifi light turned back off!
I'm thinking there is some sort of software that needs to be enabled for the Wifi to work?
There is no FN+ 'some key' to enable hardware Wifi, and the Wifi button is "On"

Thanks for any help!!!
