SOURCE: How do you turn on wireless capability on Samsung laptop?

there may be a hardware switch on the front or side of the laptop, in most machines it's on the left side near the front. if you can't find one, look at the fn keys and see if you can find one that has a picture that looks similar to this ((0))
press the fn key and the corresponding f1-f12 key. if that doesn't work

press the windows key and the R key at the same time and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. click network adapters and make sure that the wireless is enabled there. if it isn't there's your problem, if there's an exclamation point or question mark there is either a problem with the device driver or the device itself.

let me know!!

I don't know how to turn on the wireless capability on myself?

What type of computer Desktop or Laptop & Make ???...

If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on.
Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks.
This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop.
When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks.
If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off.
Locate the wireless switch on your computer.
It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front.
If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit.
Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position.
The switch will be clearly labeled.
Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on.
If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability.
The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys.
Check your user manual for your computer's key combination.

Enable wireless capability

Certain models of Acer desktop computers are designed with wireless capabilities.
These capabilities can be added to an Acer desktop system that does not connect wirelessly with either an internal or external wireless card, depending on the computer's configuration.
When the wireless connection is not working properly, you can troubleshoot the issue yourself.
The troubleshooting process eliminates the problems that may be preventing the Acer desktop computer from connecting wirelessly.

Check to see if any other computers at the same location are able to connect wirelessly.
The issue may reside with the wireless router or access point.
Power cycling the router or access point may resolve this issue.
Verify that the wireless adapter is enabled.
Click the "Start" button, then "Control Panel."
Click "Network and Sharing Center," then "Change Adapter Settings."
If the wireless adapter is disabled, right-click on it and select "Enable."
Connect to the proper wireless network.
The Acer may be attempting to the connect to the wrong wireless network, or it may have lost its connection to the correct network.
Click the wireless network icon in the task bar.
Click the proper wireless network, then click "Connect."
Enter the network password (or WEP key) if prompted.

I have an Acer Aspire 5552. It is unable to find any networks. wen I troubleshoot the problem, it tells me te wireless capability is turned off. I have tried Fn F3. it is still giving me the same error....

hi there.
Try this 1

1) Click on start --> In search bar, type ncpa.cpl and press Enter.

"Network Connections" will be opened.

2) Right-click on your "Wireless Network Adapter" --> Properties -->

Select "Internet Protocol Version(TCP/IPv4) --> Click on "Properties"

button --> Make sure "Obtain an IP address automatically" is selected

--> Click on OK --> OK.

3) If the problem still exists then check your SSID and the wireless password.
Function F3 no longer turns on the wireless on my Acer Aspire 5253 laptop.
Do you receive any message or code while turning on wifi?
There is a tiny switch on the side of the laptop (on in the front) that turns the wireless ON/OFF. Make sure you've switched it on.
Method 1: Run the network troubleshooter and check if it fixes the issue:
Method 2: Do the following to change the wifi settings:
a.Click Start, type network and sharing center in the Start search box and hit Enter.
b.Click Change adapter settings.
c.Right-click the connection and select Enable.

I have to troubleshoot to turn on my wireless capability whenever i want to use the internet but can you tell me how to on it without me having to troubleshoot whenever i on my laptop.

Sounds like an external PCMCIA wireless card issue. If so, maybe the Buffalo wireless software? DLink seems to have those issues. Different card?
