I dont know where the switch for wireless


Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look onboth sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can togglethe wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN functionkey located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit willhave the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a towerwith the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will displayWireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

When you say oyu cant turn on the wireless switch does that mean after flicking the switch usually located on the front or side of the laptop it sitll doesnt work. or have you tried holding the function key (fn) and hit the wireless symbol key on your keyboard it looks like the letter i with circles around itusually on the f8 key. by holding fn then f8 key it should turn it back on

I cant get any wireless signals because its says wireless capability is turned off it says to use the switch to turn it on but there is no switch. how do i turn it back on


Depending on your operating system, you can often just troubleshoot the problem and Windows will automatically turn your wireless adapter back on. If this doesn't work, it's likely that there's a physical switch on the laptop that needs to be in the "on" position otherwise it won't work. It may also be a function key combination. If this is the case, look for a little wireless symbol on your F1 through F12 buttons, then hit the function key "Fn" (usually right next to Ctrl) along with the appropriate wifi key and it should re-engage.
