    There are no keys that will turn on the light. I have also tried Fn f2, no luck. I have gone into network connections and the wireless connection is enbled. I'm still stumped as to why when I'm on the road, I have connection and light sometims, then it will disappear. I can't get it turned on even if I reboot. Tried safemode. still...nothing. Please help! Thank you in advance! I really apreciate it.

    I have the same problem. Fn-F2 used to work, but doesn't any longer. Tried similar things to the above pose to fix but none worked. Happens in ubuntu and windows.

    Lots of times on the Dell laptops, there is multi functions keys. You may want to look on your numbers keys for a satelite symbol. If you have this, just press func then the key with this symbol. You will then see a notification of your wifi being activated in the lower right hand corner.

Cannot get an HP G60 120US running Win Vista SP2 to recognize wireless internet connection. Wireless button will not turn blue (on), even after a two-minute power down reset with the battery removed...


I've had similar problems with wireless cards refusing to turn their light blue until the driver was updated via windows update. Obviously I had to do this using a wired connection. Try connectiing with a wired connection and udating until windows update tell you everything is up to date then restart your laptop and wait for about 5 minutes before you press the on/off button on your wireless. You can also try removing the wireless card (physically I mean) rebooting, shutting down and replacing the card then rebooting again. If you know anybody that has the same kind of laptop ask if you can try their wireless card to see if it's a fault with that. Sorry I can't help more.

Aspire 6930 wireless button not working


Without any wireless networks available, using your computer wirelessly is most pointless. If you want to set up a wireless access point in your home you need a wireless router, connected to Internet.

Hardware switch on a amilo fujitsu laptop


On some of the Amilo Models, the Wi-Fi button is actually a key combination on the keyboard. Have a look for a key with the wireless symbol on it - looks a bit like an antenna, and hold Fn while you press that key. Your Wireless should come back on.

Fujitsu's can be odd, cause the hardware button (mentioned above) doesn't actually disable the driver in Windows, just turns it off so no connections appear.

First you must sure that your wireless card is working
Second confirm your wireless setup is right.
Then reset your wireless account. Or your laptop battery cant supply the power to your wireless card, check the metal connection.

Wireless Connection


I had this problem when I first got my laptop!
I have the same brand & everything as you, so this should work.!

the speakers on the computer are on the side of the laptop, under neath the mouse pad & everything.. (there on the side where when your computer is on, theres a little light thats green, and when its charging, theres a orange light on.)

inbetween the two speakers, there are also the plug ins for headphones & microphone. to the left of those plug ins, there are two slide-able buttons. one for blue tooth, and the other for wireless. the wireless one is on the right. when the wireless is on, the button has an orange light beside it. when off, there is no light. there is an icon beside the button that looks like a pole with a ring around it.
turn your computer on & slide the button, give it a minute to search for the networks & it'll be up & running. i hope i could help(:
