Hello for windows xp you can try that
1) Go to Start and click on Control Panel.
2) Control Panel window will appear. Double click on Network Connections.
3) Network Connections window will appear!
Disabling the wireless connection: Right click the Wireless Network Connection by identifying the correct wireless card and type. If the connection is currently enabled, the first option in this menu will be Disable. Otherwise, the option will be Enable.

My netbook will not go online I have tried my home wi fi and 2 diffrent public wifi


Hi,
try to do the below troubleshooting :
1) Boot up your netbook. 2) Login to windows. wait until windows finish loading. 3) Make suer your WiFi is enable. Search for the button of keyboard shortcut like 'fn' + 'f2' (wifi symbol). 4) Search for wifi network nearby. 5) connect to one of them. 6) Usually, public enable wifi is using a DHCP setup. Go to you wifi adapter setup page and make sure it's already on DHCP mode. 7) You should be able to connect to the wifi network (public DHCP enable) by now. 8) If you still can't connect to the wifi, means its not a public DHCP enable network or you got a wifi adapter problem.
Good luck ;)

Hi! I can't find any way to get my Advent 4211-C (Windows XP OS) webcam working on Skype (the only webcam function I currently use). Cyberlink says there's "No available Captured Device". I don't...


Advent 4211 always require you to enable it everytime you turn the laptop on. it is Fn key + F10 I think. Look for the Function key at the top of your keyboard which has a picture of a webcam. Hold down the FN key at the bottom left, and then click on the correct 'F' key. You should see a little picture come up on the screen to say you have enabled your webcam. That should work.

To enable the Wireless LAN Fn + F2

usually the wifi function key has the universal antenna symbol with radio waves emanating from it.

The manual says the other hotkeys are:

Fn + F2 - Wireless LAN
Fn + F3 - Standby
Fn + F4 - External display
Fn + F7 - Reduce brightness
Fn + F8 - Increase brightness
Fn + F9 - Play / pause media
Fn + F10 - Stop media
Fn + F11 - Media previous chapter
Fn + F12 - Media Next Chapter
Fn + scroll - Scroll Lock

I dont have an advent - but there may be a keyboard shortcut.
