    the wireless switch on the front of my SONY VGN-Z590 laptop does not appear to be working. Is there a keystroke combo that I can use to turn on the wireless LAN?

  • pkeighley May 09, 2010

    need to have someone who is familiar with the SONY VGN-Z590 laptop answer the question, please. The previous two suggestions were not helpful and show that the "experts" really don't know the fn keys of this machine or they wouldn't have made the suggestions they did. Can you tell me if there is a keystroke combo to turn on the wireless LAN? Thanks

Sorry there is no shortcut key to turn on the wireless. But you can go to Start then control panel then then HP wireless assistant. There you can turn on and off the wireless. If you do not see the wireless assistant click on the classic view on the left. Now this is for Vista that came with your computer. If you have another operating system please let me know.

The common function keys that you can try to enable and disable the wireless capability of your laptop is Fn+F2 or Fn+F4 and those functions keys don't work it only means one thing the laptop really only use the wireless switch that it has on it. The only way to use again the wireless is to have that switch fix.

Wireless lan not working on my acer aspire 4520


The wireless feature (Wireless LAN) on an Acer notebook allows you to connect to available networks. This convenience allows you to use the Internet with network cables, modems or network installation. Acer laptops come with a wireless switch to turn the wireless feature on or off. Once you enable the wireless feature, your Acer notebook can connect to wireless networks within range.

Instructions:
1.Locate the Wireless LAN switch located on the front of your Acer Notebook. Move the switch to the right to turn on Wireless connections.

2.Right-click the network icon located on the system tray next to the clock. You should see a list of available wireless networks.

3.Select the network you want to connect to and click "Connect."

I have an 'old' PackardBell easynote R1935 which i have formatted and reinsalled XP Home edition. All is well except i cannot get the wireless LAN to switch on (via F1). The driver is functioning...


I have seen some laptops where there has been a wireless symbol on a function key that doesn't seem to do anything. It might seem a silly question, but there isn't a physical switch somewhere along the front or side edges is there?

Where is the switch or function key combination to turn on wireless connection?


It's difficult to tell, but there seems to be a small switch on the front, that may activate the wireless connection. If that isn't it, you can usually access the modems through control panel, under 'network and internet,' and the wireless assistant, or possibly the network and sharing center; if the wireless modem is disabled, right clicking on the icon will usually give you an option to activate it, or you can connect to a network through the network and sharing center, as well as detecting networks, and that will tell you whether or not the thing is working.

Configure Modem Echolife HG520s With WRT54G OR WRE54G


Not sure if I understand properly but your router should have a WAN port or an "Internet" port

your modem should be connected to it and your PC should be on any of the LAN port

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

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.

More details would help. Assuming that no wireless card is detected then is it turned on by a switch or a keystroke combination (eg <Fn>+<F2>?
