Enable / Disable an Enterprise Laptop's Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi, short for Wireless Fidelity, is networking technology that allows you to connect to the Internet. If you have a wireless-enabled Latitude computer you can connect to the Internet when in range of an access point called a hotspot.
When not in use your Latitude's wireless card should be disabled. By disabling Wi-Fi, you will receive two benefits:
Start-up times will be much faster.
If the wireless card is ON and you are out of the office (not connected to your normal, wired connection), the laptop will try to use the Wi-Fi network during the login process to run the various start-up scripts, etc. It will eventually time-out (fail). By having the wireless card turned OFF, the start-up process will be much faster.
Computer will not continually search for a wireless network (and waste battery life).
If you are in the office (connected to your normal, wired connection) or in a location where there is no wireless hotspot, you don't need to have the computer waste processing power by looking and looking for a wireless hotspot. By disabling Wi-Fi, you will gain a little more power for your other tasks. In addition, you will maximize your battery operating time by disabling wireless activity.
NOTE: After your Latitude has started up completely, you can ENABLE the wireless card and connect to a wireless hotspot. For example, a wireless router at your home or at a local coffee shop. If you have connected to this hotspot previously, the wireless card should connect automatically for you.
NOTE: Once you have the wireless card enabled, before you shut down the computer, you should again DISABLE the card. The computer will then be ready for the next time you turn it on with wireless turned off.
Enable / Disable with Hardware Switch
The more recent Latitude models have a wireless switch to enable or disable wireless network devices and the
Wi-Fi Catcher Network Locator.
Dell Latitude E6420 and E6520 Series
These laptops have a small switch on the RIGHT side of the keyboard. The switch is toward the front of the laptop. The Wi-Fi Catcher™ icon will is above the keyboard. You will see a lit radio tower if the wireless switch is enable

How do I connect to the interrnet?


Hello,

If you have internet at home you can connect to a modem or a router using a network cable(cat5). If the laptop has built in wireless then you can connect to wireless hotspots when in range. You need to make sure that wireless is enabled on your laptop if you have it. Some laptops have a wireless button located on the case you can switch on/off.

If not, and you are using Microsoft Windows, you can go into Network settings through control panel and enable it by right clicking on the wireless adapter and choosing enable.

I m nt able to locate my wifi switch on my laptop acer aspire4720z. plz help


Hello,

Your wi-fi switch is located to the top most buttons on your laptop which is the "easy-launch buttons". The first one is WLAN(your wi-fi), second is INTERNET, third EMAIL, fourth BLUETOOTH, and fifth ARCADE.

You may need to setup your wi-fi by pressing the Empowering Key (triangle button inscribed with letter "e").

Hope this helps.

The wireless wan in my aspire 6930 no longer function, what can i do to fix it?


Make sure the drivers for the wireless card are installed and also that the wireless switch is turned on.

Those are the two main things to check, are you able to look for networks or is the wireless completely unavailable?

If its completely unavailable it might be disabled or the drivers are missing. to check this, right click on your my computer or computer, which you will find from either your desktop or from start menu.

Select Manage.

On the computer management window on the left side click on device manager, look for any devices with a RED X or a yellow ? mark.

Also look under the network adapters, what do you see there?

Wi-fi connection


1. First, you have to make sure that the Wi-Fi of your laptop is turned on.

2. Make sure that there's an available wireless network in your area so that you can test if the computer can detect any available network.

3. If you're running Win XP, right-click the wireless icon on your system tray and select "View available wireless networks"

4. If you can't detect any wireless network, right-click the wireless icon on your system tray and select Open Network Connections.

5. Right-click the Wireless Network Connection icon and make sure to enable it.

6. If it's already enabled, try to disable it and then re-enable it.

7. If you can't still detect any wireless network, try this:
- Click the Start > Run > type msconfig > hit Enter

8. Locate the Wireless Zero Configuration and click on it once.

9. Once it's highlighted, locate the Start button on the upper left hand corner of that screen.

10. After starting the Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC), try to detect the wireless network again.

No longer searches for internet signal/connection.


In the upper left corner of screen click blue apple -> location -> automatic , also you can look at Applications->Internet Connect.
Side note - if you are using other people's wireless without their express consent, this is now on the law books as illegal and they are beginning to prosecute more and more people for this very thing, it is simple enough for them to catch you as well. It would be much less expensive in the long run to purchase legal internet services.
