if you cannot find the switch have a look at the F keys for a key with the wireless symbol shown in that link and use the FN key + the F key with that symbol
To check that you have a wireless adapter and that it is working OK Press the Windows key (bottom left of the keyboard} and at the same time press the R key, now in the search box that appears - type devmgmt.msc Click on the + sign next to network adapters - you are looking for an item labeled Wireless or 802.11 make sure no yellow ? or ! in device manager anywhere -

What function keys do I use to get a wireless connection?


Have you tried using the function keys? There is a row of keys at the top labeled F1 though F12, they also have symbols. Find the one that looks like one of these, press and hold the function enable key that is like at the bottom of your keyboard and then select the button you found in the top row.

Wireless on my compaq c60 is disabled but i cant find a switch to enable it. Can i use function keys and if so which?


I am unable to find a photo of your laptop's keyboard, so I cannot be certain which function key will enable your wireless adapter.

However, most laptops are very similar, so this solution should work for your problem.

1) Locate the secondary function key (probably labeled "FN") on your keyboard.
2) Locate the key which controls your wireless adapter as a secondary function. It will have the following image on the key: http://cdnsupport.gateway.com/s/Mobile/2007/Phantom/WirelessIcon.gif
3) While holding the FN key, press the wireless key
4) Your wireless adapter is now enabled. If you are still having wireless issues, the problem was not that the hardware wireless adapter was disabled.

I disabled the wireless (wi-fi) using the shortcut key.now i want to access wi-fi but unable to start using the shortcut key..wht exactly happened? did the driver had been uninstalled or wht? plz tell wht...


It should toggle. I don't think the driver would get uninstalled. Usually it's a switch (on Acer) or a Fn (Wifi icon Button) that turns Wifi on or off.

You may have to search for networks by clicking on the signal bars on the bottom right part of your screen, in order to connect to the Wifi network that is at your location.

Can't enable Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card


I had the exact same problem and went through the same steps that he did. It was only when I searched for a physical wireless switch (on the left side of my Dell D630) that the problem was solved. I didn't even know it was there and must have inadvertently knocked into the off position.

The bluetooth turns on using FN + F11 it should turn the wireless too but doesn't MSI U100


As per the manual the FN and F11 keys turn on both Bluetooth and Wireless so you need to try it will turn bluetooth and then it will turn on wireless, you can check them by LEDS

Press and hold the Fn button, and then press the F11 button
repeatedly to enable or disable the Wireless LAN or Bluetooth function
recurrently.

Wireless LAN and Bluetooth:
�� Wireless LAN LED indicator glows green when Wireless LAN function is
enabled.
�� Bluetooth LED indicator glows blue when Bluetooth function is enabled.
�� Both LED indicators glow green and blue at the same time when both
functions are enabled.
�� Both LED indicators go out when both functions are disabled.
�� Note: For flight safety consideration, make sure these two LED indicators
go out when you are in flight.

Let me know if you are able to turn the wireless on

Also i will suggest you check in device manager that you wireless adapter is enabled
