When it says to press the FN key and the F2 key it means that there is a particular key with the letters FN on it, press this key and the F2 key at the same time to turn on and off the wireless. ITS NOT THE F AND THE N KEY , ITS THE FN KEY.

Hmm possibly a Dell? Then you would hold down the function key and depress the "F" key that has a picture of a satellite atenna, in my case it is (F2). Look on your keyboard.

How do I switch on wireless capability on an acer laptop travelmatep453?


On Acer laptops, wireless capability can be enabled by using a combination of keys on the keyboard. In most of the Acer laptops, there is also a dedicated wireless switch located on the top of the keyboard. The icon representing this dedicated switch can vary depending upon the model. To know more about this, you can refer to the guidelines mentioned on the link below:

I have spilled water on my laptot and the keyboard doesn't work anymore. I have connected an external keyboard now however, I cant switch on the wireless capability. Does anyone know a way to do t


Hello,

There may be a switch on the side of the laptop that turns the wireless on and off. Also try pressing and holding the fn key and pressing and releasing f1 or f2. The water spill may have killed the wireless card also. If you still can't get it working, then purchase an inexpensive usb wireless adapter. This will plug into an available usb port and will give you wireles capabilities. You will need to replace the keyboard as well as it was obviously damaged by the spill. Check on ebay, or contact the manufacturer for a replacement.

Hope this helps!

How to turn on the wireless capability by using a combination of function keys. Have re-installed the driver and turned the switch to on position but windows could not detect.


Make sure Windows is set to manage your wireless. Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Services
Make sure "Wireless Zero Configuration" is started, and is set to Automatically Start.
Good luck.

I have a compaq presario laptop. I am told I can turn on the wireless capability by using a switch or a function key combination. I have no switch; please whaty function key combination should I use?


A presario that I have has a button on the right side front that is recessed and round. You did not list the model you have and there are MANY models. Mine is an R3000 series.

The button is similar to those on the side for the audio control.
