It depends on the brand and model you have, Some laptops come with slide switch, some come with easy touch button, some laptops work with Fn+Function keys. If you indicate your specific model we can tell you the exact procedure.

I cannot activate my Dell Wireless 5720 Sprint Mobile Broadband (EVD0 Rev-A) minicard. Can anyone help me?


Hi,

There are three places I can think of.

1. In the BIOS (Boot up and press F2 to go into BIOS, find the wireless on/off setting)
2. Function (Fn) key + F2 to toggle between wireless / no wireless
3. A physical toggle switch on the left of the laptop next to the PCMCIA slot, signified by a wireless symbol (antenna with radio waves around it).
Hope one of these helps. If none of the above, try installing the proper drivers from the Dell website and try again.
Cheers.

Hi,

Your laptop should have a switch on the front or side that switches your wireless radio on. If this has been done you must right-click on the wireless indicator and you should see en enable option. These are the only 2 places you can enable or disable the wireless radio.

When i press fn+f1 the wireless on my fijisu siemens does't go on


This is a little fiddly, There are technically (or can be) 2 switches for wireless radio's a hard setting (which you have) and a software swtich. These can be located in the wireless card settings, go to the device manager expand out the wireless card and then go to configuration down the left hand side there are some values, one of these could be "wireless radio", on the right hand side there should be an on or off function. This does vary from one laptop to another though. Is this a new card thats been added or an original one???

Wireless internet conxn


try to look for a wireless switch on the computer. Sometimes, the wireless switch is located on the side or on top of the function keys (it sometimes shows as a slide switch or a button with a radio signal/ radio waves).

You can try to contact your computer manufacturer to ask where the wireless switch on the computer is located.

My broadband wireless adapter isn't connecting


Hmmmm... this is quite hard endyananna... Is your computer have its own third party Wireless Software? Sometyms Built in adapters on laptops come with their own wireless software that manages the wireless connection. First thing is to locate that program by going to network connections and checking the name of the adapter. Once you found the name, go to the all programs and look for that software there. Try to connect using that software first. In case that it wont work then you have no choice but to use Wireless Zero of Windows. go to run, type services.msc, enable it , start the service, go to network connections, go to wireless cx properties, put a check on use windows to configure my wireless network settings, click ok, right click on wireless network cx, open up view available networks, you should be able to connect after that. In case that it didnt work. Then I have a hunch that youre computer have another software that configures your wireless network connection and that prgram must be used. Good Luck then. If you have any problems, you can always call your OEM for support.
