    On the HP laptops, there is a switch for the wireless. It has to be turned on. The switch is usually on the left edge of the laptop, next to the power and hd lights.

How to turn on the wireless card on Sony pcg11211L


If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on.

Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks.

This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop.

When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks.

If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off.

Locate the wireless switch on your computer.

It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front.
If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit.

Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position.
The switch will be clearly labeled.

Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on.
If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability.

The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys.

Check your user manual for your computer's key combination.

There should be a switch on the front of your computer that says "wireless". The switch being there and in the on position does not guarantee bluetooth functionality. You can find out if your computer supports bluetooth by going to start and typing in device manager. When it comes up look for bluetooth devices. If there are none in the list then your computer does not support it.

We had the same problem and the above solution didn't work. It wasn't anything your son did, but obviously a problem with the computer itself. Disconnect from the mains and pull out the battery with the computer still going, then restart. When prompted just open Windows normally and the wifi was now functional again.

Wireless adaptor not detecting wireless networks


You need to check first if the wireless switch is turn on. You cann see that infront or the side of the laptop. If it is on, check the function key for the wireless. Some computers have function key. Sometimes it is combination of fn and f5. Press those keys at the same time and you should see a pop up window and check if the current status is on. If it is on, uninstall/reinstall the wireless driver in device manager. and restart your computer. If this didn't work. You need to do re installation of your operating system.

Press the Fn key. While keeping it pressed, press F2 key. This combination of keys will turn on the wireless. You can use the same key combination to switch off the wireless also. When the wireless is turned on the wifi light glows to indicate it is on.

Where is the switch or function key combination to turn on wireless connection?


It's difficult to tell, but there seems to be a small switch on the front, that may activate the wireless connection. If that isn't it, you can usually access the modems through control panel, under 'network and internet,' and the wireless assistant, or possibly the network and sharing center; if the wireless modem is disabled, right clicking on the icon will usually give you an option to activate it, or you can connect to a network through the network and sharing center, as well as detecting networks, and that will tell you whether or not the thing is working.
