    Only I don't find anything on the keyboard suggesting what the key combination might be. I am pretty sure it's that simple though (meaning not a virus or a driver issue).
    So can anyone help me? What key combo switches wireless off on an 2½ yr-old Amilo without keyboard clues?

    Is your wireless device listed in your device manager? (It would be under network devices.)If it is there, is it enabled and does it say that it is working properly?

All I have for the Fujitsu Amilo Series:


Fujitsu (General) - Fn+F10 or Fn+F1
Fujitsu/Siemens (General) - Use either the sliding “Wireless” button on the right-hand side of the laptop or use the Fn+F2 key combo
Some models have the ON/OFF wireless button just below the touchpad.
Amilo 7400 - Software switch
Amilo A & D Series - Button above the keyboard on top Right
Amilo K Series - No Built-in Wireless for this model
Amilo L/EL Series - Fn+F1
Amilo La Series - Fn+F2
Amilo Li Series - Easy launch button (one of 3) on top of keyboard

I found a very discreet WiFi switch on the very front of the laptop.

On some of the Amilo Models, the Wi-Fi button is actually a key combination on the keyboard. Have a look for a key with the wireless symbol on it - looks a bit like an antenna, and hold Fn while you press that key. Your Wireless should come back on.

Fujitsu's can be odd, cause the hardware button (mentioned above) doesn't actually disable the driver in Windows, just turns it off so no connections appear.

How do I turn on wireless connection on my laptop?


I think you just need to setup a new network/wireless connection. That or just enable the wireless connection you have or search for an available one and yours should come on the list.

Connection to wireless


There is any wireless adapter showing in the control panel.
According to the laptop specs, this laptop did not come with wireless capability. You need to purchase a wireless notebook adapter for it or us it with a network cable.
See the specs on this link:

You must first detemine that your PC is equipped with a wireless adapter card, because even though it may look like one is installed, you may not have purchased one with the PC. It is common. Let me know I will assist you with this issue, in additon I need information like:
can you connect to the internet through a landline?
How old is your PC?
Have you every used it for wireless?
