Question about Medion MD-40954 Notebook

1 Answer

I?m unable to detect any wireless networks, because the WLAN adaptor hasn?t yet been activated. There is a specific ?hotkey? (function+F1) to enable the WLAN adaptor but the keyboard doesn't work anymore so I cannot use this to activate WLAN adaptor. I have installed a USB Keyboard but it doesn't have wireless key like on the laptop. Is there another way to active the WLAN?

Hello shge2dope,

The wireless lan can be activated (enabled) from the control panel as follows:

•Click Start (lower left-hand of screen)
•Select Control Panel
•Select Network and sharing Center (might be called just 'Network')
•Select the wireless lan adapter and enable it

* Another way might be to select the WLAN icon in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. Then right-click and select the option to enable it

If this solution is helpful please click a thumbs-up rating below.

Have a great day,

How can I configure wlan and Bluetooth on Blu life play X cell phone?


Do you have a wireless (WiFi) home network ? Do you have any other Bluetooth-enabled devices that are turned on that your phone can detect ? You also need to tap on Scan for Bluetooth on your phone for it to start looking for available Bluetooth devices; maybe you need to do the same for WLAN.

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

Hello. where exactly is the button on the dell latitude d410 that activates the wifi? thanks.


On Dell laptops usually the wireless is not a hardware switch but a hotkey combination. On most moels (your too I think) it should be Function + F2 to toggle wireless on or off.

Toshiba satellite L500-1R0, fn hotkey is not functioning to on the wireless of the system. please help with the software i can download to to use it on my system wireless on.


Hi, have you tried the front wlan switch? It is located at the front of your laptop and usually will resolve the problem. If it is already on, then turn your switch off and then on. Also double check the function key to make sure that it is on. If it still doesnt work, you will need to start checking other things such as drivers, and if the drivers are there, then it could be a wlan card failure. To check the drivers, click on Start>>right-click on Computer>>left-click on Manage. On the left, click on Device Manager, and under the heading of Network Adaptors, see if there is anything corresponding to your wlan adaptor. If there is nothing like this, then your card seems to have failed. Otherwise, a yellow exclamation mark indicates a driver problem. In this case of a driver problem, right click on it, and then click on uninstall. Restart your computer and see if the wlan works. Failing all of that, it would point to a wlan card failure. Hope this information helps

Right, do not know what I am doing but here goes....connected desktop pc to wireless router, then tried to do the same with my Fujitsu Amilo laptop and can't, i've gone into adminstrator command prompt...


Make sure first that you know the wireless settings on your router. Take note of the SSID (wireless network name), wireless channel, wireless security settings (WEP/WPA, preshared key/passphrase/wep key/wireless network key).

For Win XP/Win Vista: On the system tray (lower right corner of the screen; near the clock), right click on the double-monitor icon that says Wireless network connection. Then select View available wireless networks.

You should detect the SSID or wireless network name. Highlight it, then if it asks for a network key, you need to type the wireless network key. Then click connect.

Hope this helps!

How do you turn on the wireless function on the esprimo v5535?


hai

According to the laptop's quick guide this is how you enable and disable your wireless:

Radio components: Wireless LAN/ Bluetooth/UMTS

The installation of a wireless LAN module not approved by Fujitsu
Siemens Computers GmbH voids the permits issued for this device
(see chapter "Technical data", Page 22).

Depending on the device variant, wireless LAN, Bluetooth and/or UMTS may be integrated in your notebook.

On delivery, WLAN components are switched on, Bluetooth components off.

Switching the radio components on and off
Start the WirelessSelector using the key combination Fn + F1 .
The WirelessSelector enables you to switch the radio components activated in
BIOS Setup on and off individually.

BUWlMuireTtlSeososthLAN
Press the key combination Fn + F1 to start the WirelessSelector.

The radio component indicator will be illuminated when one or more
radio components is switched on.

If you switch off the radio components, the Bluetooth module, UMTS and wireless LAN transmission unit (antenna) will also be switched off.

You can enable or disable the radio components individually.

BIOS Setup allows you to specify which radio components can be switched on
and off using the key combination Fn + F1 .

Only those components that have been activated in BIOS Setup can be switched on and off using the key combination Fn + F1 .
Conversely, components that are deactivated in BIOS setup cannot be controlled using the key combination.

You can also activate and deactivate the radio components individually in the BIOS Setup. You must have assigned the supervisor password in order for this function to be available.

Pay attention to the additional safety notes for devices with radio
components provided in the "Safety" manual.

Details on using Wireless LAN can be found in the online help system
included in the Wireless LAN software.

You can find more information on how to use Bluetooth on the CD you
received with your Bluetooth software.
