Turn wireless networking on


On the top row of keys, where the Function keys are, you should see a second set of BLUE icons on the keys. The F12 key will turn on the wireless. You must PRESS AND HOLD the Fn key (next to the Windows keys at the bottom) while pressing F12.

Function key for wireless neo m548ss


Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look onboth sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can togglethe wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN functionkey located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit willhave the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a towerwith the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will displayWireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

I have a toshba satellite p775D laptop. it says the hardware radio switch is odd. how do i turn it back on so i connect with the internet and where is it located?


Look on both sides of the computer and in front of the computer for a switch that controls the wireless.

Once you turn it on your wireless should come back. Also once you have the switch turned on there is another way to toggle the wireless on and off by hitting a set of keystrokes. If you Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left part of the keyboard, then hit the key that controls the wireless (F1 thru F12) you can toggle the wireless off and on. The correct F1 thru F12 key will have the wireless icon )))) signal on it or it might have a tower with a the wireless icon )))) signal. Once you Press and Hold the FN key, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key to toggle the wireless a message will probably appear on your screen that says Wireless On or Wireless Off.

Turn wifi on dell


There should be a switch on the side or at the front of the laptop. If the switch is on, then you can also toggle the Wifi on and off by a set of key strokes. Normally you can hit either the ALT, CTRL or FN key + the F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. Most times its the FN key, but I have seen the Alt key used. Press and Hold the FN key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key will have the wireless icon )))) on it. Normally if you hit the correct keys to toggle the wireless the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off.

Turn on wireless


There might be a wireless switch located on either side of the laptop or at the front of the laptop. If so flip the switch. Also there might be a combination of keystrokes that toggles the wireless on and off. Normally you would have to hit the FN Function key + another key (F1 thru F12) to toggle the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key will probably have the wireless icon )))) on it. Press and Hold the FN key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that controls the wireless. When you do it your lcd screen might show Wireless On or Wireless Off as you press the keys.

My Wi-Fi on Lenova Think Pad T60 is not working. I tried to update the drivers. Still not working.


What is it doing? Still not working could mean a lot of things!!! Is the computer connected to the wireless network? You've got to connect to the network before you can do anything. And most times the problem with connecting to the network is people key the network key or password wrong so the wireless just keeps on polling trying to connect.

Do you have the wireless turned on on the notepad? Sometimes there might be a wireless switch somewhere that you have to turn on. Also most times you can toggle the wireless On and Off by hitting the FN Function key and the corresponding F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. Most times the correct F1 thru F12 key will have a wireless icon signal on it sorta like ))))) or it may show a tower with the signals. Once you find the correct F1 thru F12 key to press then Press and Hold the FN Function key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key. If you look at your screen most times it will let you know if you've toggled the wireless by displaying Wireless On or Wireless Off.

Can't turn on my WiFi on Asus UL30V


Look on both sides of your laptop for a switch. The switch might even be in the front of the laptop. If you see it, slide it or push it depending on the type. Normally when it is on there should be a blue light indicating so.

You also have keystrokes that turn the wireless on an off. Hit the FN (Function Key) + F1 thru F12 key. Look for the F1 thru F12 key that controls the wireless. Normally it will have a wireless signal on it. The signal will be an icon that looks like )))). Once you have the correct key that controls the wireless hit the FN key and hold it down and hit the F1 thru F12 key that controls the wireless. Normally there will be a popup on the screen that says Wireless On or Wireless Off.
