To turn your wireless on or off:

  • Click "Start", now click " Control Panel".
  • Find "Network and Internet Connections" and click that. That will open up a separate windows for "Network and Internet Connections".
  • Double click "Network Connections" which will open up another window.
  • Right click "Wireless Network Connection" then click "Enable". This will turn on your Wireless Communications.

Please let me know if you have any trouble and I'll try and trouble shoot the problem for you.
Hope this helps.

There's no physical switch or key combination to turn the wireless on or off on that model. According to Gateway's website, to turn it on and off, you have to enable/disable it using the Windows Control Panel.

Here's the steps on how to do that: (on Windows XP)
-Click on the Start button
-Click on Control Panel
-Looking at the control panel in category view (should be about 10 choices in this view), click on Network and Internet Connections
-From there, open Network Connections
-You'll see a list of the network connections on your system. Look for the one called Wireless Network Connection. Right-click on it.
-In the menu that comes up, you'll see either Enable or Disable. Choose that to turn the wireless on or off, respectively.

A lot of computers, like myne for instance, use a proram either natve to the computer like wndows, or something like intel PROSET wireless. i would recommend doing a computer search for these or other programs like these.

Wifi problems

Could your WiFi be disabled?
Look in the bottom right of your monitor next to the time and you should see the WiFi signal.
If there is a red X that means your WiFi has been disabled or turned off.
There are many ways this can occur (Switch on side of computer, button on top of keyboard, etc)
I would look for a button with a little antenna next to it or a switch on the side of your PC.

I have a 4810t acer and cant or dont know how to switch on the wifi , there dosnt seem to be a button to switch it of and on.

Check the F keys at the top and more than likely one of them will have a Wifi antenna picture. Find that button and usually its pressing the Fn key and that F key together to toggle wifi on/off.

I think there is a sliding button to switch on wifi on my Lenovo 3000 N100 but it doesn't seem to be working.

Hi supriyamahta,

That's right, there's a physical wifi switch for your Lenovo 3000 N100. It's located on the front panel of your machine. It should be toggled on the right side if you wanted to turn it on. If it's not working you might need to turn on it's wifi soft switch. All you have to do is to press the Fn + F5 button. In any case and still you will be encountering the same issue that wifi switch can't be turned on I will ask you to contact Lenovo so they can give you proper recommendation on how the wifi switch can be replaced.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Plug your power cord back in, then boot your computer again. If your WiFi button was on before, it should automatically switch on after booting your laptop.

I could not find any information as to where the WiFi switch is located on that model, but it should be near the side, front, or near the keyboard. It should be a small switch or button with this symbol:

Hope that helps!

WiFi radio is turned off

The EZ button software must be installed to turn the radio on or off. The switch on the side does nothing.
