To enable your wireless card go to control panel. Switch to classic view if it is not already in classic view. Then click on "network connections" a list of your network devices including the wireless card should appear. Right click on the wireless card then select "enable" from the menu. It is now enabled. (these directions are for windows XP, vista is the same process but may need some modifications to the steps.)

Hi there,
First of all you need to see two things in the system 1. Drivers 2. Wireless button Light
1. If the drivers are installed you will see wireless icon in the taskbar bilalseham.jpg
if its not available you can check two things 1. Drivers are installed properly 2. Either its enable or disable
You will see the drivers by right clicking my computer>Manage> Device Manager Right click my Network Places> Properties> wireless network connection right click and select Enable
2. Wireless Button Light Infront of the laptop where you see the Audio Jacks and You see two white buttons (Right one is Wireless Enable/Disable Button) when its Disabled you will not see any light When Enabled you will see Orange light Blinking or stable. Press once and it should get enabled. and if you have installed Launch Manager you will also see notification on screen that WIRELESS ENABLED OR WIRELESS DISABLED
Follow above steps and you will be able to see the wireless connection,
Drivers Link: Wireless LAN Driver ( Atheros) Wireless LAN Driver (Broadcom)
If you require more assistance feel free to reply to this post

How do I turn on wireless switch for network card?


hi look for a swithc infront of the laptop or sometimes at the side. Then slide the witch to ON position. You may use also the funtion key in enabling/disabling the wireless card. Look for the F keys thats has a drawing of a computer with signal on it. Usually this key is the F5 key. Press and hold the Fn key then tap that key. This will toggle enable/disable the wireless interface.

Have a good day!
