HOW DO I ENABLE THE WIRELESS ON MY LAPTOP - PC Desktops

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 desktop is connected to the internet but my toshiba laptop connected to my network does not connect to the internet. How do I turn on the wireless switch? Is there other proceedures that I need to...


First enable the Wireless service of your Internet Service Router/modem what ever it is.

Then enable the Wireless plug and play service in your Laptop, it will automatically load the required file, if not then use the Windows Installation CD/Mobo CD of the Laptop.

Let me know if you need further assistance and also specify in detail so we can investigate and fix the problem.

I don't know how to enable the wireless on a Toshiba Satellite L25-S1196


If you're running XP
Start, Control Panel, Network and Internet Connections, Network Connections, Right Click on your Wireless and Select 'Enable".
If it's a physical switch on the laptop then you need to turn it on. Check the sides of the laptop.

My Toshiba SP6000 cannot enable the wireless network connection when the wireless pc-card is inserted. I intend to network my laptop to my computer for broaband purposes. Please help


Hi Alirahmani26,

From what I've gathered here, you're trying to use a wireless card on your laptop to connect to the Internet through your desktop computer. Are you using a wireless router somewhere in there? Or are you wanting to connect to the Internet FROM your laptop THROUGH your desktop computer? If the latter, are you planning to connect the laptop with a Cat-5 cable or with the wireless connection?
