Try pressing the FN+F2

If you have windows, try this. Go to Start, Control Panel, Network and Internet Connections, Network Connections. Right-click on your wireless connection, and if there is an option to "enable," then enable it. Otherwise, it'll say "disable," which means that it's turned on.

There is a button above the keyboard to turn on Wireless

Hope it works :-)

    While logged into the router, Turn on "broadcast ssid" or tell your computer exactly what the SSID is. One form of security is to set the router not to tell other computers in wifi range what the ssid is.

    Wireless not working compaq 730us

    First thought check for the wireless switch. It is normally located on side of the laptop, some models have this button above the keyboard. Make sure it is turned on. You can normally tell if it is by the color of the light by the switch. Blue = on, Red = off.

    If this is not the case answer the following question to help narrow the search:

    1. Has the computer connected to this network before?
    2. Can the computer connect to anyother network (e.i. at a friends house)
    3. Were any updates install?

    I hope this helps.
