Check all around the front and sides of the laptop.

Just pay really close attention. You should see it.

If not you might have it turned off via the Function keys.

Most of the time it's FN + F2 but it depends...pay close attention to the SYMBOLS on the Function keys (the top row).

Hope this helps!

Need function ket number to turn on internetwork


I don't fully understand your question. Do you mean which function key on the keyboard (F1, F2, etc.) to turn on wireless internet? You usually do not use a function key for that purpose. There is usually a switch or button on the laptop somewhere to enable or disable the wireless internet. The switch might be on the front edge of the laptop or just above the keyboard. Or are you in need of the passcode to connect to a wireless network? If so your internet provider should have provided the passcode or you will need to contact them to get it. If you are trying to connect to someone else's Wi-Fi network they will have to provide the passcode.

Turn wireless on


The router or 2-in-one (router/modem combo), must be set up
through your Internet Service Provider and connected with either a DSL line or
Cable.

Since most Acer laptops have built-in wireless, no
additional hardware is required.

Turn on the laptop.

Move the switch located on the front of the laptop to the
right, then let go.


The switch will go back to its original position.





Confirm that the wireless networking icon has appeared on
the screen.

Right-click the wireless icon in the bottom right corner.

In Windows 7 this will resemble a small stair-step triangle;
In Vista it looks like a tiny monitor.

Click "View available wireless networks."


It might also say "Open network and sharing
center."

Wait while the adapter finds your wireless network.


Click to highlight the network and click the
"Connect" button.

Enter the security password that you created when setting up
the router (if applicable).


If you don't know or can't remember, log in to the gateway
page specified in the user's guide.

Locate the "Wireless security" settings page to
see if security is enabled.


If it is, type in a new key and enter the same
number for the wireless network.

How do I turn on my wireless connection


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.

Do my computer have wireless internet


The Acer Aspire 5315-2153 notebook was designed with a built-in 802.11b/g Wireless LAN card. The wireless card is typically enabled using a small toggle switch located at the front, left of the PC.

The switch moves to the left and has what appears to be a "satellite dish" icon stenciled just to the right of it.

Toggle once to turn the card on and again to turn it off.

Where is the Internet button located on NEC 3100 Laptop. I have wireless internet but it will not connect. Have been assisted ny the Internet provider. Looks like the laptop internet button is turned off....


You can manually disable the Wireless connection on mostly all laptops/tablet pc's. Check either on the left or on the bottom. It is a button (Picture: it has a tower with waves coming from it) that you can either slide forward and backward, or a button that you press to turn on and off. Why do they have these on laptops???? Well that's for another time! It will NEVER connect if this button is turned off, or disabled. Again, you have to make sure that it is NOT manually disabled first, sometimes you might not ever know that you "accidentally" turned it off with you fingers, but trust me if you can not connect at all, than that is what is wrong.

Wireless internet conxn


try to look for a wireless switch on the computer. Sometimes, the wireless switch is located on the side or on top of the function keys (it sometimes shows as a slide switch or a button with a radio signal/ radio waves).

You can try to contact your computer manufacturer to ask where the wireless switch on the computer is located.
