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.

How can I turn on the wireless capability on my Asus G60VX laptop? the switch on the front left is on and still nothing. trouble shooting says wireless capability is turned off. it was working fine untill...


I can figure out that your laptop runs Windows Vista. Go to Control panel, then Network and Sharing centre and then go to Manage Network Connections and see if the Wireless Network Connections icon is disabled, make sure it is enabled and not connected. Try disabling and enabling it again. If still no go, try to manually turn off the wireless switch and turn it back ON. Check the light status (if any), confirm the error message too. If still, it seems not to be working, then the internal switching might have gone bad. You need to get the laptop serviced.

Arvind

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.

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.

Laptop not connectiong to wireless network


is there a switch on the laptop either in the power management software or an actual switch on the laptop case (or a button) that turns the wireless on and off? That's probably the problem, not your router.
