My laptop (acer aspire 4930) wifi is not able to detect wireless networks. It has been working fine for 1.5 years but something has happened today that it is not able to detect the wireless connections.


Double check that the Wi-Fi didn't accidentally get turned off. There should be a button on your computer that turns it on and off or a fn key usually fn+f2. Try that first if that doesn't solve the issue try reinstalling your driver which can be found at the following site.

Red screen on laptop when I turn it on


As in you can't see anything, it's just all red? This may be an issue with the actual display itself or possibly a loose connection from the mainboard to the display

Gateway laptop wireless button


Hold down Fn key and hit F2. It will be used to turn on and turn off the wireless switch.
If you have window vista, Click Start, All Programs, Accessories, Window Mobility Centre, Turn Wireless On.

1005he can not connect to wireless internet. have another laptop and not having same issue.


Hmmm - are you able to connect to other networks? are you getting a "no connectivity" message? Is wireless not showing at all? If the latter, have you tried checking that wireless is enabled? You may have accidently turned it off by hitting F2 key - can be put back on by hitting F2 again or through EEE PC Tray utility. If you are getting a "no connectivity" message or "limited connectivity", you can try shutting off the wireless and then putting it back on to force your netbook to search for the network again. If that doesn't work,try running the wireless network connection utility (I'm assuming you have Windows XP - if not, please let us all know) - open "Control Panel", click on "Network Connections", status of "Wireless Network Connection" should be "enabled" or "connected". If not, right click on "Wireless Network Connection" and choose "Repair". If that doesn't work, double click on "Wireless Network Connection" again to open the Wireless connection status window - the general tab lists status, network, duration, speed signal strenght, etc. - make a note of what it says here as you may need to post this info for more help. You can close this window. Now yet again right click on "Wireless Network Connection" and choose "Properties" to open another popup window - in the window, click on the "Wireless Networks" tab. The box next to "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings" should be checked. Your home network should be listed in the Preferred networks window - select it and click "Properties" and check that the correct information is entered for your home network (did you change anything recently? Password aka network key, encryption settings, network name - if so you have to reflect those changes here). If your home network is NOT listed, you need to create it. Click OK to save any changes you make, exit out of all the menus, then (if necessary) use F2 to disable and re-enable your wireless to force your netbook to look for the connection again. If this doesn't work, go to Device Manager (open Control Panel, click on System, click on Hardware tab, click on Device Manager). In Device Manager, scroll down to Network adapters - if there is a yellow triangle with an exclamation point next to your 802.11n Wireless LAN Card, then you have some sort of device conflict or driver issue - is there an error message? If there is no yellow triangle and no error message, then you can exit Device Manager. If you are getting an error message or yellow triangle, try and fix this issue by reinstalling the correct driver from Asus or fixing the conflict - right click on 802.11n Wireless LAN Card and choose "update driver" if you need to do that (you will have to download the correct driver using another machine and copy it onto your netbook first) - otherwise choose "Properties" to troubleshoot. If there is a yellow triangle and/or an error message and you cannot get it fixed, it might be a good idea to make a note of error messages and details of what you tried so you can post them here to assist people in helping you.

If there was nothing wrong in the device manager, or if none of the above worked, it is possible that you have a malware infestation that damaged your winsock. In that case you can download Winsock XP Fix from Snapfiles or Cnet (from another computer), copy it onto your netbook and run it. If that fixes your problem, you may have malware issues and should do a virsucan (if you do not have an antivirus installed, get Avira free which is awesome) - I would also strongly suggest you download the free versions of Malwarebytes, Superantispyware and Emsi's A2free usb and run them to clean your system.

If none of the above works, then as a last resort you could back up all your data onto disk or an external drive and then use the Asus restore function to set your netbook back to factory default. You would have to reinstall all your software and reconfigure your netbook and copy all your data back - but at least hopefully your wifi would be working! If restoring to factory default did not fix your problem, then you almost certainly have a hardware failure.

Hope something above helped ya. Good luck.

ASUS N50V FnF2 stopped working.


Dun worry. I experienced that before.. There is a physical wireless slide switch at the right of the indication light. switch it on first and see if it works.

Gateway 4026GZ lost wireless ability


Make sure your wireless card is on (use Fn + F2 to toggle on and off).
Also make sure it is enabled by going to control panel -> network connections and right clicking on your wireless network device and going down to enabled.
