SOURCE: WiFi turns itself off

Hi Troy,
Don't know if this will work with your Dell, but on my Averatec, I had to do the following.
Go to Start>Right click on My Computer and select Properties. Click on the Hardware tab, and Device manger. Click on + by the Network Adapters. Right click on your wireless, Intel or Broadcom wireless adapter, and click on Advanced. Findd the Minimum Power Consumption and make sure it is disabled. If you have a Power Management tab, click on it, and uncheck both boxes.

Good Luck!

No signal on computer after several tries it will come on the apple tech people have tried everything they know but the problem persists


is it a wifi mac? I suggest that you unplug the power cable behind your router and leave it unplugged for at least 15 mins. then plug it back and try to reconnect. If it does not work delete your router connection from the wifi list. switch off your wifi on the mac, switch it back on and it should sort out it self.

How to open wifi


Opening the WiFi depends on the brand or make of your laptop.

Mostly, you will have a switch for the laptop to turn on the WiFi radio. Try locating the switch for your WiFi. Usually, it is the one with a small antenna symbol printed near a small LED light. If the light is on, it means the WiFi radio is on.

I would suggest providing us more information about your laptop so that we can assist you further.

Pls tell me what is the functional key combination for wireless for my toshiba laptop?


Look for the wifi icon on any of your keyboard's function keys (F1 to F12). The wifi icon looks like a wave or radio signal like ))) or ((( or ((())). When you find that icon, example, in F10, then just press and hold down FN and press F10. This will turn your wifi on.

Also, if your laptop have a mechanical switch, you have to turn it ON first. The mechanical or manual switch is found usually in the sides and can be turned ON or OFF by sliding sideways.

Please post feedback so that I can help you further.

Where is the wireless switch on a Acer Aspire 5735


Usually, if there is no HARD SWITCH for wifi, there is an equivalent keyboard key combination to turn wifi radio receiver ON. Look at your laptop's Function Keys: F1, F2, ... F12. Among them there is an icon for WIFI, something that looks like an antenna with wave signals. Now press and hold the FN key and press that function key with the wifi icon. Example, if the wifi icon appears at F10, then press FN + F10 to turn your wifi ON or OFF.
