    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.

You need to check first if the wireless switch is turn on.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.

I have a Toshiba Qosmio F60 series. My son using


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.

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.

Wireless Internet connection


Look for a button with waves or curves on it, something like this

or

if may either be on the keyboard or a switch elsewhere on the computer

If it's a function button hold down the Fn key as you would the shift key and tap the key with the icon on it to turn the wireless off or on, look at your screen when you do this and it should show whether it's turning on or off
