I had this same problem. The slider switch on the right side if the laptop enables both the wifi connection and the Bluetooth control. My laptop was only turning on the Bluetooth. If this is happening to you, true booting the computer and going in the BIOS settings, Network, wireless adapter. There you will have the option to turn it on or off. Mine was set to off. I clicked on and rebooted to Windows and it works now. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: switch on the wireless device first?

PLease locate the slider switch at the edge of your laptop. there should be a small slider switch for your wireless. Try to look at the sides or at the front of your keyboard.

What make, what Model? One of the least standardized items in computing is what/where the wireless switch is.

SOURCE: where is the wireless switch for ibm t42 laptop i

There is no dedicated one key/button for wireless for IBM Thinkpad T42. If "Fn" + "F5" keys for the on-screen function that activate/de-activate the wireless not working, you can access it by IBM utility software: Start.All Programs.Access IBM. IBM Access Connections. You can use the software to disable/enable the Fn+F5.

SOURCE: can't enable Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card

I had the exact same problem and went through the same steps that he did. It was only when I searched for a physical wireless switch (on the left side of my Dell D630) that the problem was solved. I didn't even know it was there and must have inadvertently knocked into the off position.

I have a Lenova R61 laptop. Can you please tell me how to enable a wireless connection i.e where is the wireless switch??


Hi. Here is a diagram of your laptop. It looks like your wireless switch is turned on by hitting a combination of two keyboard buttons. The Fn key and the F2 key. Locate the Fn (function) key, and locate the F2 key. Then press the Fn key and hold it down. Then press the F2 key and it should cycle back to on. If that does not work. Click on start, my computer, on the left, my network places, view network connections. Double click on your wireless connection, and it should enable it if it is disabled.
Thanks for using Fixya!

I can't get my Network Adapter to connect to my Local Area Connection on my laptop. It tells me to turn my wireless capability but every time i flick the swith for it to be on it doesn't say it's on.


check the bios of the laptop to make sure the network card is enabled (at the BIOS hardware level)
check the FN + (F#) switch to activate the network adapter. for example, IBM\Lenovo is FN + F5 to activate the bluetooth and network adapter cards. In many cases, these settings are separate from the driver and software settings on the computer itself.
