I found a page that suggested that only Intel integrated WiFi chipset support WoWLAN:

http://revolutionwifi.blogspot.com/2010/11/wake-on-wireless-lan.html

It is down under the "Limitations" section.

Of course, this particular page is more that 2.5 years old, so things may have changed...but my quick Google search did not find anything else that might suggest that you could do it with your computer.

You might want to contact Acer and ask them.
