Not according to specs - its has wireless 802.11b/g installed. If wireless is not enabled, and there is no separate wireless button, check the function keys and look at the blue legends hat are on them. One of them may look like a transmitting antenna. To activate the key, press and hold the "Fn" key while pressing the function key with the legend to see if that activates the wireless. If so, pressing it again will deactivate it.
maybe your wireless card is bad. Try this, remove the power cord and battery, turn the laptop over and remove the cover that is over the wireless. Hopefully the wirless is under the bottom, sometimes it might be under the keyboard or plamrest.
Anyway, remove the two antenna cables from the wireless card, and also remove the wireless card out of the slot that it fits it. Then after a few seconds put the wifi card back into the slot, attach the antennas, put the cover back on and reboot. Sometimes reseating helps.
First you will need to have the install disc for your card.Install driversoftware from cd or dvd, following directions.Once installed you should see a new hardware device has been found notification.
Next you will need to configure your card with the routers wep key or wireless security key.I am assuming wireless is activated on your router.Should see a light on the router lit under wireless,or a symbol.
1 start pc then start internet explorer.
2 Type in the top bar of ie 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11 hit enter.
3 This should bring you to the routers home page.usaername=admin password=password or admin
4 Find your wireless tab or settings page looking for security area.
5 Find your wep or wireless security code,write this down.
6 Log off of router.
7 Go into network cards configuration program and put this wep code into the area provided.
8 Software may have found it automaticly, it just needs this code.
If you cant connect to router at step one use a ethernet cable from your pc to the router to log on.
If wireless card is listed in device manager under network adapters-that means you dont have to install it. If you running on vista, go to control panel and find ssomething like wireless contol manager or wireless assistant and see if its not disabled there. may also be disabled in bios settings. on windows xp-check if windows has possibility to manage wireless networks or its blocked by third party software. for example i use bt voyager wireless card and its managed by bt software. built in cards are likely managed by windows. type services.msc in run box and see if wireless zero configuration service is enabled.
Check the Device Manager to see if the Wireless card is working and enabled. If not reinstall the wireless card driver.
If this doesn't work, you may have a faulty wireless card.
If the wireless card is not built-in remove it and insert it into another computer to test the wireless card.
