There is a monitor icon in the lower right hand corner with a red x. When I right click it, it says no wireless connection. Then a bigger dialog box says make sure your wireless switch is on. Fn+F2 does...

Open the System Control Panel and click on Device Manager. Is your wireless card recognized by the system here? Does it have a yellow exclamation point on it? You can right-click on the device to bring up its properties. This will let you check whether the driver is loaded.

You may need to reinstall the wireless card driver.

If the wireless device is listed as missing or failed in the Device Manager, shut down the computer, remove the wireless card and reconnect it. This may clear up any connector contact issues. If the card connects to internal antenna wires, try to leave those connected when you do this - just rotate the antenna connectors a bit to scrub the contacts. The antenna connectors are very tiny slip-on coax connectors. It's a tricky business to get them seated without mashing them, so the less you mess with them the better.

If you are using a PCMCIA or PC-Card wireless transceiver, try it in the other PCMCIA slot.

I'm assuming you get your results within range of a known good wireless router.

If none of this works, it's time to try another wireless card.

Can not pick up wireless internet on it

If the wireless card is working with the correct driver it will automatically see any wireless networks within range.
Check in device manager that the computer is seeing the wireless card, if it is try updating the driver from the Fujitsu support site, you will obviously have to connect direct to your router to get on the net.
If the Arial leads are not tight on the card it will not see anything even if right next to the router.
You can strip down to the wireless card by following a solution I recently posted on how to changing the COMS battery.

Look for a switch that turns on the wireless device. Also check in the connection manager if the device is active and the wireless adapter is within range.

1. this one is obvious but is probably best to check.. are your access points broadcasting the ssid? if not get that fix first or manually configured your workstation by entering the ssid you had configured in your access point with the respective pass/key
2. did you download the correct driver? check in device manager for any ! or ? next to your wireless adapter (network adapter) then do the following if any:
a. rollback to the previous driver by doing a driver rollback (device manager, device properties, driver tab) then test.
b. uninstall and reinstall the driver that you got from the laptop manufacturer, check the model is the same correct one.

If your laptop is not "on range" this problably respond to:

1) Interference problem or bad signal.
2) Bad hardware devices (cards, routers etc)

Check your wireless router (turn it off in a while and see what happen)
Check your wireless card adaptor in your computer (My PC >> right click Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Network)

Let me know how it is going!

On my laptop, I cant connect with wireless connection.

1. were you ever able to do it before?
2. first.. check your wireless adapter is on and you have a light showing you adapter is on (blue or green).. on some compaq laptops if you get an amber light and the switch is on the on position the wireless adapter may be faulty and your motherboard may have to be replaced.
3. check also you are within range of your access point (router).. usually on the system tray (where you clock is ) you will see icons showing you are within range or not (ex. a computer flasing a little blue light with some waves to right).
4. find if your computer detects your wireless adapter (go into start>right click my computer>properties>hardware tab> device manager... and look under network adapters! if you see your wireless adapter make sure you don't have a ? or a ! sign next to it.. if you do you may need to update the driver or reinstall the driver of this device. check the cd that came with the adapter or using another computer download the setup file/driver from the hardware manufacturer of your device and using a flash drive move it to the system you're working on and install the appropiate driver for your operating system.
