Where is the wireless button located on bytespeed PC


Check the function keys (F1, F2, F3, etc) for a "wireless" icon. Then when you have found it, hold the "Fn" key (lower left hand side of the keyboard) first and try toggling the function key until a menu comes up or the wireless starts to work.

Won't find wireless connection


Did you turn the wireless switch on? Normally there is a switch either on the sides or the front of the laptop that you have to turn on. Sometimes it is a button at the top of the keyboard.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

Wifi not working


Make sure that driver is installed properly. If it is, check for wifi switch. Make sure it is turned on. In some laptops do not have switches, they use the functions keys to turn them on. Use Fn+F2 or Fn+F3. Also, make sure that you just have one wireless utility activated in the computer. It is more advised that you use the Windows Wireless utility which is more compatible with most types of routers.
Lastly, check your wireless card and the wireless router if they are wireless a,b,g or n. If the router is wireless n, your card should also be wireless n. If your card is just b or g, it would not work.

I have an acer travelmate 212tx. it has an ethernet port in the back but when i try to connect to the internet with a wired connection it says that none can be detected. how do i remedy this?


Hi

If you take you ethernet cable from the back of your laptop and plug straight into your router
that should access the internet immediately

If you are trying to ge a t wireless connection from your router then have you checked that you have enabled the wireless switch on your laptop

im not sure but the switch could be over on the far left of the keyboard probably have a small picture that looks like a mini satellite dish

Where is the wireless switch and how do you turn it on


The wireless switch is in the front or on the left or right edge of your laptop, this is a small sliding switch, slide it to turn it on.

You can also try pressing the Fn key + F2 or F3... try all combination with Fn till F12 as this combination varies from system to system.

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.

Wireless switch


the wireless switch isnt actually a switch. its the same as on the travelmate 2410 i think.which means its a little button on the front. but if that doesnt work
you could always activate it from inside the network connections bit on control panel.
