Wireless Switch

Wireless Technology
  1. The Vostro 1510 system ships with a wireless feature called the wireless switch. It is located on the left side of the system next to the ExpressCard slot. This switch serves to dectivate or activate the wireless antenna.

Wireless Switch LED Settings
The LED (located on the Hinge Cover) on the wireless switch works only when the system is powered on. A user can activate the switch and have it scan for networks only after going through a complete boot process. The switch is used to detect only wireless signals. This setting is in the BIOS under the Wireless section.
The LED indicates the following functionality:
  • Solid Blue - The system has detected a wireless signal.
  • Off - The system failed to detect a wireless device installed.
Thank You,

How do I turn on my wireless connection


If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on.
Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks.
This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop.
When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks.
If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off.
Locate the wireless switch on your computer.
It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front.
If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit.
Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position.
The switch will be clearly labeled.
Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on.
If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability.
The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys.
Check your user manual for your computer's key combination.

I have belkin connect n150 and i have two laptops my one laptop is connect to wireless but the one laptop cant access to wireless it says no wireless network were found in range..


If your message is like this " no wireless network found in range make sure wireless on the computer is On". All you need to do is look for the wireless switch usually located on the side or the back of your laptop. Sometimes its near the F keys or start button. You may check your laptop manual to see where to locate the wireless switch , or you can check the laptop manufacturers website usually they gave information on where to locate or enable the wireless feature of laptop.

What qualifies you people to write responses? The switch for the 6930 is located just above the NumLock key. It actually looks like an LED indicator of a satellite dish, but it's not. It's the button for the WiFi enable/disable. Push it hard...

Cant get wirless connection 2 work


Many notebooks do not have a wireless switch, if they do, then it will be easy to locate, and will be either a button or slide switch with a wireless icon marking it. If you're machine doesn't have one, or if you can't locate it we're going to assume it doesn't, then this is generally a driver glitch. Uninstall the wireless drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will detect the wireless card and autoatically reinstall the drivers. Try this and let me know.

Wireless internet conxn


try to look for a wireless switch on the computer. Sometimes, the wireless switch is located on the side or on top of the function keys (it sometimes shows as a slide switch or a button with a radio signal/ radio waves).

You can try to contact your computer manufacturer to ask where the wireless switch on the computer is located.
