In XP go into my computer from the start menu... Click onto view system information.... Click onto the hardware tab and then click onto device manager. Once there you should see your wireless connection under network adapters.... expand it and you will see your wireless card. Just right click on it and choose whatever you want to do.
It should be located in the "F" keys on the upper portion of the keyboard...once you find the key that looks like the wireless symbol (a tower with parentheses around it) kind of looks like this:
((( i )))
once you find that press the "FN" key at the lower left hard side of your keyboard PLUS the the ((( i ))) key!
That should turn it on, or look on the edge front of the laptop with the lid open to the left of the keyboard, there might be a switch!
Hope this helps, if not message me!
