Trouble with wireless connection

Hi I have a person visiting from Finland with an ASUS F5 notebook. It has a wireless network interface but it does not see the wireless network of my ADSL router / modem (I am in South Africa). I have an acer notebook which can see this network with no problem. Any suggestions. Thanks Dave Horn

No wifi detection


Good day. For you to be able to connect or detect a wifi you need to make sure of this things:

1. Check if wireless switch is on, which is usually located on the top part of your keyboard or at the side
2. check if the wireless network is present
> Go to Start
> go to control panel
> device manager
> Click Network Adapter ( check if a wireless adapter is present )
Note: if you see a red x on the wireless adapter you need to right click and enable the device
if you a yellow ! mark you need to reinstall the driver or software that came with your
notebook to make the wireless working
3. Make sure that if you have a firewall that it should not block the wifi connection

Hope this information will resolve your concern. Have a great day

How do I turn on wireless switch for network card?

hi look for a swithc infront of the laptop or sometimes at the side. Then slide the witch to ON position. You may use also the funtion key in enabling/disabling the wireless card. Look for the F keys thats has a drawing of a computer with signal on it. Usually this key is the F5 key. Press and hold the Fn key then tap that key. This will toggle enable/disable the wireless interface.

Have a good day!

Cannot connect wireless why


You have to elaborate sir, can it detect wireless networks or not? if the computer can no longer detect wireless network then it could be that the wireless switch is disabled so to enable it,normally we press Fn+F5 which is the universal code to enable/disable wireless devices whether bluetooth or wireless LAN card..

Ignore setting up the Wireless icon. Use the Network one to setup the Wireless too. As the Wireless icon won't recall the settings. Good luck!

Notebook won't connect to network

1) Verify if Wi-Fi WLAN interface of your notebook is OK.
1a) Check whether HW switch is ON and the wireless system service is running.
1b) Switch on the WLAN Access Point (router) SSID broadcasting.
1c) Scan WLAN networks by the notebook. Can you see your home WLAN? If not, there is HW or SW problem in your wireless adapter probably. If WLAN is visible, continue by next steps.

2) Remove all WLAN security on both sides (AP and notebook): Authentication = none/open, encrytption = none.
3) Activate DHCP server in the router and set the dynamic IP assigning on WLAN notebook interface.
4) Select your home WLAN SSID in the list and try to connect.
5) Wait and check status. Is WLAN connected? Does obtain the notebook an IP address?
6) In success case set the WLAN security.
