As far as I'm aware there should be a button near the screen of your laptop just above the keyboard but below the acer symbol on the screen.

I'm thinking there is a row of buttons just above the keyboard, there should be a button there with what looks like a satallite on it, if its on it coule be either an orange or green light.

Usually there is switch or button on side of laptop or you have blue antenna icon on kayboard (usually F2)? If you have that blue antenna icon then you can use it together with Fn (function) button on left bottom side of keyboard.

Happy wireless!

Were is the wireless turn on switch?


It appears that there isn't an external switch to turn the WLAN off on the Everex NC1500 laptop (click here for the full manual). Here is a link showing you how to disable and enable WLAN card in WinXP (click here) if this is what you are trying to accomplish.
According to the manual (if your wireless isn't working) you must first install the WLAN driver before using the wireless connection. Info: "Wireless LAN module is similar to LAN module. You need to install software driver before using it. Please refer to Appendix B on how to install the driver." Appendix B INSTALLING THE WIRELESS LANDEVICE DRIVER Please follow the procedures below for installing the Mini PCI Adapter driver: Installing Wireless LAN driver for Windows XP 1. Click the Start button and then click Run. The Run dialog box appears. 2. Click Browse button and specify the directory as "E:\Drivers\Winxp\Wireless LAN\setup.exe" 3. Click "OK" to implement the setup program to install this driver. 4. Click "Next" twice to continue the installation.
Hope this was helpful.

Cannot the wireless internet setup


Hi kschmerer,

I understand that you are not able to setup the Wireless Network Connection in your Computer.
To fix this issue, please make sure that the Physical Wireless Switch on the Computer is turned ON and then try connecting the Computer to the Wirelss Network.

You can locate the Physical Wireless Switch on the front side of the Computer. Please move the switch toward right side to turn it ON.

Once the Physical Wireless Switch is turned ON, please try setting up the Wireless Network Connection.

If you are not able to to connect to Wireless Network Connection after switching on the Physical Wireless LAN Switch, try using the Wireless Switch Setting Utility.

To enable the Wireless Network Connection using the Wireless Device Switch Utility, please double-click the Wireless Device Switch icon on the right corner of the Taskbar. Then in the open Wireless Device Switch window, please click to check the box next to Enable 2.4Ghz Wireless LAN.

This should fix the issue.

Please post back if you have any questions or require further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.
