Go to the device manager and look for your network adapters. click on the plus sign by network adapters if there is one and see if there is a wireless adapter listed. If there is, right click on it and see if it is enabled. then check the drivers tab and see if there is a driver listed for it. I am not aware of a switch for wireless, but there may be a an Fn + "F" key combination.

If all else fails, go back to the wireless card if there is one listed and highlight it, right click on it and choose uninstall. reboot the machine but instruct it to keep the drivers, we just want to force a reinstall of the device and drivers so we reset the settings.

I have broadband thru verizon on my netbook(windows7 OS). can i "jump" off that connection with my home pc, wireless capable, win xp OS? meanoing can i broadcast n\broadband signal so i can surf internet...


Yes, easy way would be through Connectify. It turns almost any Windows 7 OS PC into a virtual wifi router. The software is free. Basically, it will share whatever internet connection your netbook is getting via a virtual wifi hotspot that your other wireless devices can connect to.

How do I connect to web?


As far am I'm aware the Advent 4211 netbook is not able to connect to the Internet 'on it's own' as such. Unfortunately the word 'netbook' has been advertised with this product in many PC World stores giving the wrong impression.
The best and easiest way would be to look into mobile broadband solutions.
Of course, it wouldn't do any harm to try out your Vodafone USB on their laptop to make sure it works well enough! :)

Youe broadband router is working ok with the broadband cable.So it is configured with the broadband cable.Now,to work with the wireless internet,you have to configured the wi-fi router to work internet.You can see the wi-fi connection but unless & untill you will configure wi-fi router it must not work or if before it was working with the wi-fi then you can check the wi-fi router setting because it might change by mistake.Surely it will work after configurating wi-fi router.
