Check "network connections",if youve got the correct drivers for your wireless,you should see the icon,right click it and pick "enable"
you could also right click the icon by your clock to repair,disable.(little tv-looking pikt)
also,you can drag the connection icon from "network connections"to your desktop,it will be a shortcut which will enable you to "double-click"to enable!!

Gateway sx2865-ur11p can't find networks


Double check the laptops wireless switch. They often have a feature that allows you to completely disable/enable the wireless aspects of a laptop. Windows will not tell you it is disabled always and just tell you it can't detect any signals.

Wireless button on computer not coming on with switch


If the switch is not responding you can try using the software side to turn it back on. As long as you are on windows you can go to the Control Panel, click on "Network and Internet", "Network and sharing center", Then find "Change adapter settings" along the left menu. You should see your wireless card listed, and disabled, to enable it right click and chose "enable"

Dear sir i am un able to enable my lg note book model xnoterd400's wireless adopeter


Good day,

There should be a switch on the outside of your notebook that disables and enables the wireless adapter. Sometimes it is a toggle switch and sometimes it is a combination of the function (Fn) key and one of the keys at the top: F1, F2, F3, et cetera. Look for an icon that resembles either an antenna or a computer with sets of lines around it. Once you enable the hardware switch, you should be able to go to your Network Connections and double-click the wireless connection to enable it.

Hello i cant seem to get get my wireless working anymore..it used to work fine but now the icon is gone from the taskbar and when i go into control panel and click on the wireless assitant, nothing happens...


I think your system has a hardware switch to enable and disable wireless networking.
Please check, because if it is disabled using the hardware switch, you can not use the wireless device.

How do you turn on the wireless function on the esprimo v5535?

According to the laptop's quick guide this is how you enable and disable your wireless:

Radio components: Wireless LAN/ Bluetooth/UMTS

The installation of a wireless LAN module not approved by Fujitsu
Siemens Computers GmbH voids the permits issued for this device
(see chapter "Technical data", Page 22).

Depending on the device variant, wireless LAN, Bluetooth and/or UMTS may be integrated in your notebook.

On delivery, WLAN components are switched on, Bluetooth components off.

Switching the radio components on and off
Start the WirelessSelector using the key combination Fn + F1 .
The WirelessSelector enables you to switch the radio components activated in
BIOS Setup on and off individually.

BUWlMuireTtlSeososthLAN
Press the key combination Fn + F1 to start the WirelessSelector.

The radio component indicator will be illuminated when one or more
radio components is switched on.

If you switch off the radio components, the Bluetooth module, UMTS and wireless LAN transmission unit (antenna) will also be switched off.

You can enable or disable the radio components individually.

BIOS Setup allows you to specify which radio components can be switched on
and off using the key combination Fn + F1 .

Only those components that have been activated in BIOS Setup can be switched on and off using the key combination Fn + F1 .
Conversely, components that are deactivated in BIOS setup cannot be controlled using the key combination.

You can also activate and deactivate the radio components individually in the BIOS Setup. You must have assigned the supervisor password in order for this function to be available.

Pay attention to the additional safety notes for devices with radio
components provided in the "Safety" manual.

Details on using Wireless LAN can be found in the online help system
included in the Wireless LAN software.

You can find more information on how to use Bluetooth on the CD you
received with your Bluetooth software.

I've installed my wireless router, modelwrt54g2v1, and the yellow ethernet cable is still connected to my laptop, once I remove it I have no connection?


The yellow cable (CAT5) is giving you your internet connection
you will need to follow some steps:
1) Access the routers GUI (usualy by going to a web-page in your Internet explorer EG 192.168.0.1 check the manual)
2) make sure that wireless is enabled on the router + DHCP is enabled
3) at this stage set wireless security here as well (to stop unwanted use of your broadband and people hacking your PC)
4) make sure that the laptop wireless is switched on, sometimes there is both a physical on/off switch and a software/keyboard enable/disable button, disconnect the Yellow network cable
5) go to control panel:network connections
6) right click on the wireless connections icon and then view available wireless networks
7) if you see your network then highlight it and click connect
8) enter the security password (if any) which you set in step3 above.

let me know how you get on
