Question about Gateway Solo 5300 Notebook

2 Answers

I cannot locate the wireless switch on my Gateway 5300.

I have no manual and have not been able to find the info on any Gateway site.  I want to connect to a wireless network but cannot find the wireless switch.  There appears to be an access door on the front but have it will not pop/flip open.  I'm afraid to try to force it as you cannot tell which way it should open.  Does anyone have a manual with a photo available?

Where is the location of the wireless switch on Gateway mx6453?


Hi There,

Your notebook does not have a physical wireless switch. However, holding down the fn key (lower left of keyboard) and pressing the F2 key will turn your wireless on and off. Below is the link to your online Manual.

How do I enable the wireless switch on a Gateway mx8711


HI there,

Most Gateway® notebooks have a designated multi-function button or function key to turn your wireless on and off. This information is located in your notebook's user guide.
The user guides for the Gateway® branded notebooks are installed on your hard drive. To access your user's guide, from the Start menu, point to All Programs, and then click Gateway Documentation. User guides are also located on the Gateway® Web site. To download or view a copy of the user's guide from Gateway.com, select your notebook type from the Notebook User Guides support page. Another source of reference for networking your computer is the Gateway Notebook Networking Guide. Quick reference:
  • Gateway® M675 - Multi-function button (last on right)
  • Gateway® 200ARC - Multi-function button (last on right)
  • Gateway® M505 - Multi-function button (first on top)
  • Gateway® M500 - Multi-function button (first on top)
  • The Gateway® M275 notebook uses the system keys FN+F7
  • Most other notebooks use FN+F2
Hope this helps you out.

Wireless switch on model solo 5300


Hi. Not enough information. Do you want a switch? Do you need to FIND a switch? Is it a Gateway notebook?
The specifications for the Gateway Solo 5300 do not indicate a wireless system as part of the original unit.
See:
http://support.gateway.com/s/manlib/Notebooks/Solo5300/8508144/8508144.htm

Most units with PC100 memory (like this one) did not come with wireless. You will likely need a wireless PCMCIA card.

Can the wifi b/g be upgraded with the MIMO 3 802.11n Intel 5300 Wifi Wireless WLAN PCI-E Card? George


You can install that card on a gateway mx6025..

It wil work properly, just be sure to disable the onboard wireless card after you install the pci express card so they dont conflict..

Wireless


I think there is no Wireless lan connection available with your machine. You will have to install the same. Now USB Wireless Lan Cards available. Buy a New Wireless lan adopter and install
