Yes, the switch is at the back.

The LifeBook S is equipped with a Wi-Fi (802.11b) receiver; the antennas are inside a long, black plastic panel that runs along the top edge of the lid. The wireless receiver's on/off switch is on the back of the notebook, where the power switch was located in earlier models. Meanwhile, the power switch has moved to a more convenient location on the side of the unit, next to the FireWire port.

Wireless LAN/ Bluetooth ON/OFF Switch
The switch allows you to turn on and off the Wireless LAN/ Bluetooth communications. Slide the switch to the right to turn it on, or slide the switch to the left to turn it off.

Hi I have an old Fujitsu P7010 I'm trying to connect to wireless network at home . But it doesnt seem to find a wireless network in range.


If you are trying to connect to a free WiFi network site try the Airport. Macdonalds, Starbucks etc.
The wireless networks in your area are most likely private wireless networks and if you find one within wireless range you most likely cannot connect into this network without the owner's permission because the connection will be encryption protection (they would need to give you this encryption key).

When I switch my wireless connection sith on at the front of my fujitsu lifebook S7010D the laptop encounters an error and closes down


Use another machine to download latest drivers from the following site: http://support.ts.fujitsu.com/com/support/downloads.html Search for
Device Driver - Intel® PRO/Wireless LAN 2200 BG - LIFEBOOK S7010
or alternatively use the Deskupdate to auto update all drivers for your S7010
Save the zip files to a USB key. Turn the wireless connection off using the switch at the front of your laptop. Unzip and install the new drivers. You should be good to go from here.
Good luck.

Not picking up wireless networks


What you need to verify is that the wireless adapter is not disabled or turned off. There is a switch on the front edge of the unit that will turn the adapter off and on.
if you go to http://solutions.us.fujitsu.com/www/content/pdf/SupportGuides/S7210_GSG_B5FJ-5241-01EN-00.pdf you can see the picture of where it is, but from the center on teh front edge, where the latch is, moving to the left, is the mic socket, the headphone socket and them the on/off switch you are looking for. slide it the other way and that should get you back on.
If that doesn't turn is back on, verify in the network connections that the adapter is enabled as well.

I have a secondhand 5 series lifebook how do i turn on and setup the wireless facility for internet access


Have you got your own wireless router and you are trying to connect to it?
To connect to the Internet, you need to have your own wireless router cable or DSL modem that is connected to an Internet Service Provider of your choice.
Most Internet Service Providers can supply the wireless router and a broadband plan that suits your needs. Beware some providers will slug you with excess charges once you exceed your download limit.
Get back to me with details of the Wireless Router and the wireless card in your Fitjitsu laptop and I can advise you how to configure your system to secure your wireless network.

No wifi


The Fujitsu Lifebook S5582 does not have an integrated Wireless network card. This laptop was manufactured in 2001-2002. The integrated Wifi card was not generaly common in laptop computers until 2004.

So, you will need to buy a wireless adapter if you want to have wifi connectivity. Since this laptop is quite old, I would recommend a PCMCIA (a.k.a. PC card) adapter instead of a USB because it will be much lighter on the processor load.

You also have to be aware that using a wireless card will use more battery power and therefore shorten the expected autonomy of the laptop when running on battery.
