Hi ya

  • make sure that the laptop has wireless capabilities,
  • it may have just been an option ,
  • do you see a light on or near the switch when you move it.
  • if not go into device manager
  • look in the network adapters for a wi-fi adapter.
  • if its there, and disabled ,enable it ,
  • if not you probably don't have it.
  • you can buy a usb wireless adapter quit cheaply $50AU.
good luck

Wireless is disabled on dell vostro 1540


Look on both sides of the laptop for the switch or button. Look in the front of the laptop too. I've seen the wireless switch at the bottom of the lcd screen on either the left or right side on some dell models (you just press it).

Normally the keystrokes to get the wireless going requires you to Press and Hold the FN Function key then hit the key that toggles the wireless (F1 thru F12). The correct F1 thru F12 key might have the wireless icon )))) on it.

Cannot connect my acer 5600 wirelessly. WIFI is not lighted on. It says to turn on wireless switch.


The wireless switch is on the front edge of the laptop. With the lid closed, its position on the front edge is just under the right latch of the lid. Turn on by sliding the switch to the right momentarily. You should see Wireless LAN Enabled in large green letters appear briefly at the bottom of the screen. A single screen icon should appear in the desktop's Toolbar at the bottom right of the screen. If the icon doesn't appear, then likely the Wireless Network Connection is disabled. To enable do the following steps....
1. click start button at bottom right of screen
2. click Control Panel
3. in the Control Panel window, click Network Connections
4. right click Wireless Network Connection
5. on the drop-down menu click enable
If there is no Wireless Network Connection in the Control Panel's Network Connection, then the setting up of the Wireless Network Connection was skipped when the laptop was first unpacked and setup. In Control Panel, click on the Wireless Network Setup Wizard to setup the Wireless Network Connection.

Cannot the wireless internet setup


Hi kschmerer,

I understand that you are not able to setup the Wireless Network Connection in your Computer.
To fix this issue, please make sure that the Physical Wireless Switch on the Computer is turned ON and then try connecting the Computer to the Wirelss Network.

You can locate the Physical Wireless Switch on the front side of the Computer. Please move the switch toward right side to turn it ON.

Once the Physical Wireless Switch is turned ON, please try setting up the Wireless Network Connection.

If you are not able to to connect to Wireless Network Connection after switching on the Physical Wireless LAN Switch, try using the Wireless Switch Setting Utility.

To enable the Wireless Network Connection using the Wireless Device Switch Utility, please double-click the Wireless Device Switch icon on the right corner of the Taskbar. Then in the open Wireless Device Switch window, please click to check the box next to Enable 2.4Ghz Wireless LAN.

This should fix the issue.

Please post back if you have any questions or require further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Vaio VGN-NS328 funtion key to turn on the wireless internet


Your laptop uses a wireless "Switch" located on the front edge of the laptop on the far left side. There will be an led indicator light to the right of the switch itself. Move the switch to the right to activate the wireless radio. Move the switch to the left to de-activate. Below is the link to the user manual for your laptop. It is in PDF format, so you will need Adobe reader to open it. I am also giving you a picture below of the front edge of your system.<br /> <br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.docs.sony.com/release/VGNNS300_series.pdf">http://www.docs.sony.com/release/VGNNS300_series.pdf</a><br /> <br /> <br /> <br /><img src="http://www.fixya.com/uploads/images/96F2F95.JPG" />
