    Is the switch enabled? To enable do this: Reboot and enter setup (f2 key) Using your keypad, down arrow to "wireless" and hit enter Hit down arrow again till you get to "wireless Switch" then hit enter Now using right arrow key, select "All" and press enter press escape (esc) 2 times I believe, then right arrow to exit and save changes. It should reboot, but make sure you save the changes

Maybe the drivers for the special keys are not installed. Try simply pressing the F2 key instead of Fn+F2. If it does the trick, then you have multimedia keys first option selected in BIOS which means you need to use Fn to Press function keys.

Otherwise its a driver problem.

Hello, my laptop cannot connect using wireless even though i have pressed fn & f2 keys, the bluetooth icon is activated i.e. turns blue but theres no sign of wireless network..what could be the issue...


Hi, if you are using windows XP, check for your control panel, look for network connections, and then on the LAN or Highspeed internet portion, check if there is an icon for wireless connection, if there's none, the driver of you wireless is not installed. If there is, right click the icon and then select enable.
