Check your power settings. Double click on the power management icon in the system tray. If you are using super power saver double click on the icon. You will see an advanced tab. Click on this and you will see that you can turn off wireless.

If it has never worked before or you are doing a fresh load of Windows, then you must;

Make sure you have gone to Lenovo's website and downloaded the driver recommended for the wireless adapter on that exact computer. Once you have downloaded the exe file, run it on the computer in question. It should load everything automatically from that file and the adapter start working.

Lenovo is famous for using drivers that are not automatically loaded with Windows. You may have to go online using another computer and load the driver to a thumbdrive or CD.

Once you get the wireless adapter working you can go back to Lenovo and download any additional drivers they recommend for video, sound, mouse etc.

Leveno z560 wireless is showing first switch on the wireless device


Thank you for choosing FixYa!

I work for Lenovo and I know these computers very well. With your concern, I believe the wireless switch is on but still it tells you that you need to switch on the wireless device. Now, to fix this issue, do these:

1. Press and hold "Fn" on the lower left hand side of the keyboard, beside the space bar.
2. While holding "Fn" down press "F5".

By doing so, you have enabled the wireless capability of your computer. Enjoy surfing and thank you for visiting FixYa!

Switch on the wireless device first?


PLease locate the slider switch at the edge of your laptop. there should be a small slider switch for your wireless. Try to look at the sides or at the front of your keyboard.

Wireless not working


first check the bios if the wireless is enabled. press F2 or DEL on startup. look for WAN or wireless card in the BIOS enable is if its not turn on or if its disabled. check also your device manager if it has a red x on one of the items under networking. hope that helps.
