Acer eNet Management
Acer eNet Management offers you a simple-to-use tool to manage your
network connections. You can set up different profiles for connecting to a
network from a variety of different locations, via wired or wireless connections.
Acer eNet Management detects which network environment you're in, and
automatically switches to the appropriate profile. Since the profiles also store
information such as the printer settings for each environment, Acer eNet
Management will set the correct printer default for the selected profile.
Using Acer eNet Management

•From the Start menu, go to Start > (All) Programs > Empowering
Technology > Acer eNet Management.
By clicking on the Empowering Technology icon from your desktop, or
pressing the < > key to launch the Empowering Technology user
interface. Select the Acer eNet Management icon.
