Most desktop computers are not by default wifi capable (barring a few models that include an internal USB wifi adapter in the case.) If you have added wifi to the unit by installing an internal PCI-Card Wifi adapter or plugged in a USB Wifi adapter into one of your USB ports then that capability will be added. As far as a Keyboard command to activate the Wifi, that is usually dependent on the Computer and/or the brand and model of the adapter installed. What brand of Computer and model are you having problems with? If the Wifi was added after it was purchased, what brand and model of adapter are you using?

How do I turn off wireless radio?

There are a couple of ways to turn off the wireless. 1) Look for a wireless switch on either side of your laptop or at the front of your laptop. 2) Normally the FN (Function Key) + (F1 thru F8) will toggle the wireless between on and off. To find the correct F1 thru F8 key to hit look for the )))) symbol which denotes wireless. Press and hold the FN key then hit the Function key that corresponds to wireless. Watch your desktop screen because most will display Wireless On or Wireless Off as you hit the keys. If not one sure way to know it is off is look at the computer at the bottom right of the screen near the time, it should go from being a solid green to a computer with a red X on it.

I have problems with my Dell wireless. I tried tried to install Linksys wireless. Now the linksys has been installed on my desktop. But i dont see any wireless networks on the systrayit is not connecting...

First--does your Dell have wireless capability? Most new computers do.
Next, is there a wireless switch that you must turn on--on the computer case?
Next--there is a Fn-Special function key combo that will turn on your wireless card. Did you press that combo?
Now look in you network connections--is there a wireless connection there and is it enabled?
You can also check in the device manager to see if the wireless card (under network devices) is there and is functioning. You may have to install or update the drivers.
Once you have installed or enabled the wireless device, you will see a wireless icon in the system tray.

Laptop cannot log on wirelessly . have Bigpond land line and an Optus wireless connection , neither will connect . Other computers in the house have no problem

Check if the wireless switch on the Computer is turned ON. Based on the Operating system, make sure that wireless is enabled in the supplied application, for instance, if you're using Windows Vista Operating System then make sure that wireless is enabled in Windows Mobility center.
Check in the Device manager whether the wireless adaptor has any exclamation mark. You can reach to the device manager by typing devmgmt.msc in the run dialog box and clicking OK.
Under the Device manger, click the plus sign beside the "network adaptor" and chekc if the wireless driver is listed and doesn't have any exclamation mark. If wireless driver is listed but has an exclamation mark then right click on it and uninstall. When prompted to delete then select yes and restart the Computer.
next visit the support site of the manufacturer to download the wireless driver compatible to the installed Operating system. Furthermore, you can run network diagnosis by opening Internet Explorer and click on the 'repair network".

Cannot locate wireless connection. Tells me to turn it on by using a button on the computer or a function key

it is a button located along the top left hand quick keys: it's the first one that looks like a satellite (I think: I'm going by memory). In any case it's beside the one that looks like a planet. When you press it a message will show in the bottom, middle of your screen stating the Wireless is enabled or disabled.

Wireless networking hardware not functioning properly.

Check on Device Manager if it is working properly

Right-click My Computer-Properties-Hardware-Device Manager
Click on the plus sign beside Network Adapter and double-click your wireless card.
Check on the device status if it says it's working properly.
Try to disable-enable the adapter by right-clicking on it under the device manager window.
If it has a question mark, it is most likely driver issues so contact your wireless card manufacturer or PC manufacturer if the wireless card is built in.

Trouble with wireless card

Something has gone wrong with your internet home connection--obviously nothing is the matter with your wireless connectivity hardware. You should reconfigure your home wireless connection. Follow the directions in Vista or XP help to set up a new home wireless connection. There are various ways to do this, such as through a router. If you have a home wireless router, be sure to set it for WEP incryption, or your neighbors will be able to get on your internet free.
