HELP computer says "Wireless capability on this computer is off"

HELP!!! My computer says "Wireless capability on this computer is turned off" What can I do to turn it back on, the notice says "This can be done by using a switch, which is usually found on the front or side of the computer, or a function key combination."

I have a brand new Compaq, Presario C700 portable wireless laptop. I looked all over the computer for a switch but cant find one. Any suggestions??? Thanks !!!!

Make sure the wireless switch on it is ON. Then press and hold "Fn" key and press "F5" (this enables/disables wireless capability of a computer) and try to detect wireless networks.

No wireless capability


If your model does not have wireless capability, even if you had a switch on the machine, if there is no internal wireless card you can't make this wireless. My suggestion would be to purchase a PCMCIA or USB wireless card that you can load to your system to make this wireless capable.
