Medion 95400 Wireless switch on keyboard not working

After having problems with my CD drive and my internet and having fixed the CD drive problem, I was able to reinstall my internet connection disc.
This has allowed me to at least connect to the internet by LAN. I have a home wireless network with two other computers. I am not able to connect to the internet via wireless. I have checked the drivers and all appear to be functioning. I have done the update drivers to the installation disc (application and support disc), which it couldn't find anything. I have checked in the wireless driver management and it is switched on etc. So, that leaves me with the actual switch on the keyboard - nothing...it used to come up with a small window that put a tick in the box for on and removed the tick for off. This doesnt seem to be working now. Wondering if anyone had any other suggestions.
Thanks
Keryn

    thanks, but i've already been there and the 'wireless ON'. It then comes up with another small window that basically says make sure that the wireless power button is on. So essentially, that button is the one on the keyboard which does not appear to be working? :(

My wireless wont turn on on medion akoya E5211 ... i need to turn on my wireless connection switch and dont know how or where it is


I had the same problem so I rang Medion & they told me go to the Medion website and download "Launch Manager" from your driver page. It's a program that turns on all of the Fn keys. Thus making the wireless (Fn+F1) work as well as the brightness (Fn+F8 or F9).
This is the only way to get it to work

My medion md96141 laptop is wirelessly enabled how do i switch it ON


you should be able to find a user manual here http://www.medion.co.uk/ by entering your serial number
On a lot of laptops the wireless switch is a physical switch on the side/front of the machine and may say wireless or have a symbol looking like one of these http://www.google.co.uk/images?q=wireless+symbols&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=univ&ei=4lzQS8HuDZCImgO-5pAs&sa=X&oi=image_result_group&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CB8QsAQwAA or uses the FN key and one of the F keys together to toggle on/off - again have a look for the wireless symbol
Next make sure the wireless hardware is working oK in device manager Press the Windows key (bottom left of the keyboard} and at the same time press the R key, now in the search box that appears - type devmgmt.msc on network adapters click on the + see if you have an item called wireless or 802.11 - make sure there are no yellow ? or ! if so then the driver is not working/installed - and you can download those from the same site as the manuals

Wireless internet for desktop.


Not sure what type of laptop you have, but look at the function keys on your keyboard (F1, F2, F3). Normally one of those will have an Antennae looking icon, if so then press your fn key and that key and it should turn it on.

Medion mim2120 Wireless Problems


I had similar problem with Medion WIN 2140. The harddrive crashed, I bought a new drive and had to reinstall Windows from scratch since I had neither a backup or burned the reinstallation CD's. First I installed Windows7 and every driver/application/BIOS available from Medion's download site. At first my WIFI worked OK but somtime during the process og BIOS/driverupdate my WIFI antenna turned off. The antenna can be turned on/off with a easy access button (touchpad to the right of powerbutton) but WIFI button dows not work.

Medion's danish supporters told me that Windows7 is unsupported. So I had to reinstall using Vista. Still not able to turn on WIFI. I'm pretty sure that BIOS prior to version 1.0K (dated 06.01.2010) had a "ON" possibility but is now limited to "OFF" og "LAST STATE".

Medion support wouldn't og couldn't provide me a previous version of the BIOS. In fact Medion DK's support doesn't seem to know anything about their products.

However I have found the solution myself. Launch Manager application is needed for Easy Access buttons to work. Current version 1.5.0.5 of the application is faulty. In registry i found that pressed keys call the file fn.exe, this file is not a part of the OS, Launch Manager or any other Medion driver/application.

I googled for and found the prevoius version 1.4.9 of Launch Manager. This version works without any problems on both Vista and Windows7.
http://www1.medion.de/downloads/?op=search&lang=au&type=TEXT&Param=

I wrote to Medion support to replace the faulty application on their support site. But with my current Medion experience i daught they will do anything about it. So instead I post this reply to help others.
