Question about Advent 4211c Notebook

1 Answer

Switch on wireless connection

I have a new Advent laptop, but I am unable to connect to the Internet wirelessly, I can connect with a cable OK, but not wirelessly. The laptop has built-in capability, but it says I must switch the wireless connection on; this is either by a switch on the side of the laptop, or a key combination. There are no switches that I can see, and I do not know what the key combination is. A user guide that I have refers to a computer users manual for the information to enable the wireless connection, I do not have this user manual, so not sure what to do in order to activate the wireless connection. Help and assistance would be appreciated. Kind regards John

    Many thanks, your answer was perfect, the wireless connection is on, and the laptop is now connected to the Internet, all in a matter of seconds.

    On my laptop it is the f10 key that has a wireless icon displayed, and although I tried this many times prior to your answer, it was the holding down of the Fn key that made it all work, I very much appreciate your help.



    Kind regards to all at FixYa,

Possiblr solution could be to hold down the FN key, while pressing the f11 key, you may have to do this a few times

Sir, try downloading the wireless driver from your laptop company's website. Or form the drivers cd/dvd they provided you. Then you can connect to any wireless capable modem/router from your laptop.

The ethernet cable provides the internet pulses into your laptop. If you remove it, your internet connection gets disconnected.

Hi,

You may have turn the wireless radio on first before you can connect to the internet.

Look down the sides of the laptop for a small slide switch and push it, an LED light should come on.

If you can't find a switch then hold down Fn and hit the F2 key.
