Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a gateway m6752 laptop with a wireless mechanical on/off switch on the left side. I turned it off and back on one time and now I cannot get any wireless reception. The wireless light is on, but no wireless to the router. Any comments? Also, is there any info on how to take this model apart. I would like to test the switch but cannot figure out how to get to it. Thanks

Where is the location of the wireless switch on Gateway mx6453?


Hi There,

Your notebook does not have a physical wireless switch. However, holding down the fn key (lower left of keyboard) and pressing the F2 key will turn your wireless on and off. Below is the link to your online Manual.

Where is the wireless switch on this dam thing


Some laptops don't have a mechanical switch for wifi. But just try to look around the back portion or the front or sides of your laptop. Wifi switches are slide type. You just slide it to toggle on and off.

However, newer laptops have no mechanical switches. To turn your wifi on/off, just hold down the FN key and press the Function Key (F1 to F12) where you can see the wifi logo like this: )))

In my unit, it is FN+F10

Try it out.

Wireless on my Dell Latitude E6400 switched off and I can not turn it back on. Any idea?


Press on F2 when turning back the laptop by going to the BIOS setup screen and from there have to enable your WIRELESS CONNECTION. And then have to manually TURN ON your WIRELESS device by enabling or turning ON the Wireless button of the laptop. Thank you.

Wireless wont turn on using F2 key. is this


There is a physical wireless switch on the left side of the computer. The switch turns both the wireless network adapter and the bluetooth on and off. You need to first make sure that this switch is on.

With switch in the ON postiton, then you can use the FN-F2 keys to toggle the wireless LAN on and off.

The wireless adaptor is probably a mini-pci card that can be access through a panel on the bottom. Wireless cards on laptops are not considered user-replaceable so Gateway does not show where the panel is or if it's mini-pci card. If there is a panel other than the hard drive and memory then that is where the wireless card is. They are not hard to replace though it's best to try to replace it with an exact model.
If the computer is in warranty, they Gateway will have you send it into their service depot to have it replaced,

Cannot find wireless switch for my Gateway cx2610


It probably is a small switch on the front or the sides of the computer. If there is not one, then it is Fn+something like F2.

How to turn on the wireless radio?


Gateway computers almost always place their wireless switches at the front edge of the unit on the left side. It may be kind of hiding underneath the front of the unit. If there is no switch there, then there may not be any wireless either.
