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.

Wireless connection Dell Latitude E6400

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.

Wireless card not working on my toshiba satellite a135 s4656

Is this external or internal?
A driver reinstall is a good idea. Is windows managing the device? If not switch off the other software and check that windows starts managing it.

Is the device installed at all? Check by going (using XP) click: Start> Control Panel> System> Hardware> Device manager To do so using XP click: Start> Control Panel> System> Hardware> Device manager, and find your wireless card usually under network connections.

You can get a new (likely to be faster and longer range) card on ebay for £6. might save you the worries. I did the same recently.

Hope this helps Tom,

Wireless connection slow

Same problem. RESOLVED it by going to device manager (hold the Windows Logo key near the space bar and hit PAUSE) Click hardware tab, and then device manager. click the plus next to network adapters to expand it, then right click the atheros wireless connection and go to properties. Click advanced, then find the power save mode. click it, then chose turn off on the right.

did this and my wireless is working normal again. hope this helps.

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.

How do I switch on wireless on amilo 1505 please?

Check if the wireless device is installed and working properly on your machine.
Go to >> My PC >> properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> network devices

Run a wireless network connection (Start >> Control Panel >> Wireless )

Do you have any wireless network running in your home?
If not you will not see any signal from the wireless devices.

(but it is probably instead that you can see all the wireless networks availables on range with your device (eg.:your neighbor)
