Ok you will still need to go to the gateway manifactures site and download your wireless network driver chipset. when you reinstalled windows mostlikely it deleted your chipset

Wireless wont turn on using F2 key. is this


There is a physical wireless switch on the left side of the computer. The switch turns both the wireless network adapter and the bluetooth on and off. You need to first make sure that this switch is on.

With switch in the ON postiton, then you can use the FN-F2 keys to toggle the wireless LAN on and off.

The wireless adaptor is probably a mini-pci card that can be access through a panel on the bottom. Wireless cards on laptops are not considered user-replaceable so Gateway does not show where the panel is or if it's mini-pci card. If there is a panel other than the hard drive and memory then that is where the wireless card is. They are not hard to replace though it's best to try to replace it with an exact model.
If the computer is in warranty, they Gateway will have you send it into their service depot to have it replaced,

Wireless connection ,i cant turn on my broadcom radio


It's supposed to be FN + F2, that would be a special [Function] key held down while tapping the [F2] key. But you probably knew that.

The manual (for the hardware?) is here:

http://support.gateway.com/s/Manuals/Mobile/8511184.pdf

The whole kit-and-kaboodle web page is here for that laptop, including support links and chat with Gateway.

Ummm if it won't turn on that way, perhaps the driver got messed up. And you should download it and re-install it.

If you are out of warranty, and technically and mechanically adept, you may want to try and re-seat the wireless module in the laptop. I didn't say it would be easy to get to. And as the Myth Busters say - you shouldn't try this at home. If you're not confortable with that level of work - it's best to take it to a shop.

Of course as a worse-case-scenario option - you could purchase an after market wireless card and use that.

NO laptop has WIRELESS MODEM or ROUTER.

But yeah, there is always a WIRELESS LAN card in each laptop so that you can get connected to any Wireless Access Point like Routers,Bridges or Switches.

Your OS wizard will help you to configure all wireless settings.

It's not a physical switch, and they really should put more thought into the error messages they write. To "flip" the "switch" you hold down your function key and hit F2 (you'll notice a little symbol on the F2 button - that's the "radio switch"). After that, just right click on your wireless connection and choose repair.
