What qualifies you people to write responses? The switch for the 6930 is located just above the NumLock key. It actually looks like an LED indicator of a satellite dish, but it's not. It's the button for the WiFi enable/disable. Push it hard...

Hi kschmerer,

I understand that you are not able to setup the Wireless Network Connection in your Computer.
To fix this issue, please make sure that the Physical Wireless Switch on the Computer is turned ON and then try connecting the Computer to the Wirelss Network.

You can locate the Physical Wireless Switch on the front side of the Computer. Please move the switch toward right side to turn it ON.

Once the Physical Wireless Switch is turned ON, please try setting up the Wireless Network Connection.

If you are not able to to connect to Wireless Network Connection after switching on the Physical Wireless LAN Switch, try using the Wireless Switch Setting Utility.

To enable the Wireless Network Connection using the Wireless Device Switch Utility, please double-click the Wireless Device Switch icon on the right corner of the Taskbar. Then in the open Wireless Device Switch window, please click to check the box next to Enable 2.4Ghz Wireless LAN.

This should fix the issue.

Can't switch on my wireless lan in my hcl me netbook .where is the wlan swith located .


Usually the wireless switch is located on the sides of the system, if you cant see it there. In front. and if you already turn on the wireless switch and you cant still connect. Look for the function keys. Usually it would be FN and F6. When you press those two keys at the same time. You should see a pop up window. Check if the current status is on. If it is on and you cant still connect. Uninstall and reinstall the wireless driver and try to connect again. If this didn't work, you can contact your computer manufacturer or do a clean installation.

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.

I am aboutsure about the question, but what i understood is wireless switch location

First close your laptop, then look the front view where the speaker is located, From the left

1.Speakers Left and right speakers deliver stereo audio
output.

2 Power indicator Lights up when the computer is on.

3 Battery indicator Lights up when the battery is being charged
.
4 Bluetooth communication
button/indicator (for
selected models)
Press to enable/disable the Bluetooth
function. Indicates the status of Bluetooth
communication (optional).


5 Wireless communication
button/indicator
Press to enable/disable the wireless function.
Indicates the status of wireless LAN
communication (optional).


6 Line-in jack Accepts audio line-in devices (e.g., audio CD
player, stereo walkman).


7 Mic-in jack Accepts inputs from external microphones.


So your wireless switch is the 5th one from the left. Locate it and turn on the wireless, and try to connet to the router.
Try this, hope it may work,
