Can't get the wireless to come on


Exterior Wireless Switch
Step 1
Position the laptop so that you're facing the screen and the keyboard is in front of you.
Step 2
Check the front edge of the laptop's casing.
Step 3
Identify the wireless indicator light labeled with a wireless antenna icon. The "On/Off" switch to the left of the indicator light is the wireless switch.
Step 4
Move the switch to the "Off" position to deactivate the wireless adapter or move it to the "On" position if you want to power on the wireless adapter.
On-Screen Wireless Switch
Step 1
Press and hold down the "Fn" function key on the computer's keyboard to display the laptop's hotkey card icons on the screen.
Step 2
Click the "Wireless" icon on the screen or press the corresponding hotkey button on the keyboard, typically the "F8" key on a Toshiba laptop.
Step 3
Click the "Wireless On" or "Wireless Off" icon in the options list below the hotkey card icon to activate or deactivate all wireless connections. If your laptop has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, you can also choose to activate or deactivate these services separately.

IBM Thinkpad laptop Wireless connection not working laptop is asking to switch on wireless switch- "Where is it?"


Verify that the radio is enabled.
It is possible to disable the transmitter of the wireless card without Device Manager showing any problems.
Note: Follow the instructions provided to enable wireless card.
  • Most wireless cards will put an icon in the system tray (the line of icons in the lower right corner of your screen). Right click this icon and it may have a menu option to enable/turn on the wireless radio.
  • Some systems come with a Wireless Radio switch to disable the wireless radios. The wireless radio switch is usually located on the front side of the machine. If you are having difficulties with wireless connections, make sure the Wireless Radio switch is set in the On position.

Have wireless internet but no connection to laptop. where's the switch on the laptop to turn it back on?


Hi !

Most of the laptop wireless switch is on the side of the laptop. If there is no physical switch, press the Fn+F2(wireless symbol) to enable the laptop. Double check the wireless LAN if enabled in the system setup. To access system setup, press F2 while the system is booting-up.

Hope this helps !

Thanks.

Hi - VAIO vgn-fz21m - can't locate the wireless switch/function


HI,
when you try to connect to the wireless network, you must be getting a message " turn on the wireless switch on your laptop "
See there must be a sliding switch on your laptop. it could be on the side panel or on the front panel. Try to locate the wireless switch on the laptop.
it must be having a wireless symbol on it like TOWER or Wireless signals.
On some laptops it is a combination of keys like Fn+F2 or Fn+F5.
If you have the user manual you will find the information about the wireless switch.
