Initially released in 2008, the Acer Aspire One line of netbooks sports Linux, Windows XP or Windows 7 operating systems. The Aspire One utilises Intel Atom processors and screen sizes ranging from 8.9 inches to 10.1 inches. All models ship with a built-in wireless switch on the front, lower right panel of the netbook. The wireless switch makes it easy to reset the built-in wireless antenna. You may also use the Windows operating systems' networking features to repair or to disable and re-enable a wireless network connection.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Move the wireless switch, which is located on the lower right section of the netbook, to the right to turn off the wireless.

  2. 2

    Wait 10 to 15 seconds. The wireless switch will reset to its original position.

  3. 3

    Slide the switch to the right again to power on the wireless. Give the Acer Aspire One a few seconds to restart the wireless connection.

  1. 1

    Right-click your wireless icon in the system tray. The icon will look like a computer with waves to the right in Windows XP or mobile phone signal bars in Windows 7.

  2. 2

    Click "Open Network and Sharing Center" and your "Network" in Windows 7 or "Open Network Connections" in Windows XP.

  3. 3
