How can I turn on the wireless facility toshiba satellite pro PSA45E


It has a physical switch ON/OFF in front of the case. Turn ON your wireless switch then press the FN+F5 or FN+F8 to enable your wireless radio. After doing that, try to connect now to your wireless connection.

Do i need to buy a external modem for my netbook to go online


Hello,

First you need to check if your netbook has a wireless switch, it used to be in front or by the side or in front of the laptop, if it does, all you need to do is to turn it on, and if there is a wireless network around, then you will be able to connect to the internet.

You can also the control panel to see if the netbook has a wireless switch and where it is located on the netbook, and that will simply tell if you do have wireless service on your netbook.

From the sides of the netbook, there is an internet port, if there is no wireless switch, then you can connect any local connection available in the internet port that is by the side of the netbook.

But you need to ensure there is a local connection somewhere, and the router is working correctly, then you can use the local cable connection, but if there is none, then you will have to buy an external modem for the netbook to go online.

I hope this helps.

Hi - VAIO vgn-fz21m - can't locate the wireless switch/function


HI,
when you try to connect to the wireless network, you must be getting a message " turn on the wireless switch on your laptop "
See there must be a sliding switch on your laptop. it could be on the side panel or on the front panel. Try to locate the wireless switch on the laptop.
it must be having a wireless symbol on it like TOWER or Wireless signals.
On some laptops it is a combination of keys like Fn+F2 or Fn+F5.
If you have the user manual you will find the information about the wireless switch.

Wireless button


Unless your switch is either on or you have connectivity it may not light up. You can try going to the networking settings and see if the wireless feature is disabled. Also it may be as simple as a switch is not turned on.

Help connecting


There should be a little switch on the front edge of the laptop with a little indented picture of a stick with curved lines comeing off it, switching it back and forth turns thw wireless on and off, when it is on a light next to the switch should turn on.
If this does not work maybe your wireless card is broken, if you are under warranty still you should have it looked at by a professional.
