HOW DO I ENABLE THE WIRELESS ON MY LAPTOP - Computers & Internet

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Mar 20, 2009

    When the wireless connection button or optionis off, the "connect to internet" process ends up telling you that there is usually a switch on the front or side of the laptop, or a combination of function keys. So the only new useful info (if true) in this answer is that it won't be on the side.

    FN-WIreless (which on my laptop seems to be FN-F2) did not work. WHat I wanted is the locatoin of this switch.

My laptop can't find the router


Hi Ted,


If your Laptop cant find your router there are things that you need to check to be able to know if the problem is caused by the router or by the computer. On your computer you can check if the wireless adapter is properly installed or check if the wireless switch is on. If your not familair with the wireless switch of your laptop you can refer to this link. Just find the model of your laptop. Then after you enable the switch of your laptop you can check the Wireless Settings Page of the router if the wireless is enable.

To access your router you need a working computer connected to the router then open a Browser then type 192.168.0.1. the username is admin and the password is blank. Go the the Wireless Settings Page and under Wireless Network Settings make sure that there is a Tick or a Check on Enable Wireless.

Rate me if this helps so i can help others.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Hi there,
First of all you need to see two things in the system 1. Drivers 2. Wireless button Light
1. If the drivers are installed you will see wireless icon in the taskbar bilalseham.jpg
if its not available you can check two things 1. Drivers are installed properly 2. Either its enable or disable
You will see the drivers by right clicking my computer>Manage> Device Manager Right click my Network Places> Properties> wireless network connection right click and select Enable
2. Wireless Button Light Infront of the laptop where you see the Audio Jacks and You see two white buttons (Right one is Wireless Enable/Disable Button) when its Disabled you will not see any light When Enabled you will see Orange light Blinking or stable. Press once and it should get enabled. and if you have installed Launch Manager you will also see notification on screen that WIRELESS ENABLED OR WIRELESS DISABLED
Follow above steps and you will be able to see the wireless connection,
