    Note: some computers may have a WIFI antenna switch even

    though they do not have an internal WIFI adapter.

    Check the device manager in the Windows control panel for this

    hardware adapter being installed.

I have an acer aspire 5552-5898 and i am unable to enable the wifi even after hitting FN+F3 to turn it on

From what I can find on your notebook it looks as though there may be a physical switch for your wireless as well. Be sure that this switch/button is turned on prior to using the Function F3 keys to turn on your wireless.

I am unable to turn on the wireless network adaptor on my HP Pavilion dv7-1245 Entertainment Notebook PC

Hi Jimmie,

There are several ways to turn on the wireless adapter on your Pavilion Notebook.
1. There is a power switch on the outside of the case or above the keyboard to physically turn the power to the card on and off, however some power switches can be controlled by software.

2. You can turn on the wireless card by pressing the fn+F2 keys at the same time.

3. Go to Start>Type "Mobility" in the Search box . Windows Mobility Center will appear in the Search results. Click on it to open the program.

4. You will see under "Wireless Network" on the far right side to turn wireless on or turn wireless off. Click on the button to enable or disable the adapter.

Hope this is helpful. Thanks for using Fix Ya !

2) go neat the date on the screen and open options for connections there maybe u know this. and enable the LAN/Bluetooth by sliding the slider on screen

Maybe your ding just one of the two steps hence the problem as described by you.

I am all of a sudden unable to access the internet with my laptop which has a wifi card. I have a D link wireless router and my desktop is on line but not the laptop. Why can't I access the internet?

You might of accidentally turned off your wireless capabilities. Most laptops have some sort of switch or button which you can press that turns off and on the internet. Make sure you didn't hit it on accident.

Unable to acces the ap with some network cards

Can your laptor detect any other networks? If not make sure that your wireless switch is turned on.
If wireless switch is turned on and laptop detects other networks then your router is set not to transmit ssid (check router manual on how to configure SSID transmission mode).

My wireless system on my laptop is off how can I turn it on? No wireless found in range! Make sure your wireless switch is on how can I put the switch on?

Some laptops have a switch in front next to the wireless light or on the side.

Some laptops use an F key (my toshiba is F8) so to turn on the wireless I would have to turn the switch on in front and then "toggle" the Wireless on by pressing the FN and the F8 keys.
