Look on the front edge of the laptop, look to the right side and you will see two clear buttons just left of the right speaker grill. The clear button on the right is the wireless switch, the button to the left is for the Bluetooth radio. I have included a photo below, the wireless switch is number 9.

I have an acer extensa 4630z. i cannot turn on the wireless capability. is there any alternative way on how to turn it on except for its switch. the switch doesn't work anymore. thanks.


Try this.
Go to Bios when the laptop boots (hit F2 or F8 at the startup ), and see for Wireless menu, you can modify two important settings. Make sure the wi-fi and bluetooth (if you want) are both Enabled. Then a few entries down there is a "Wireless Switch" category. Change this setting to "None." Then, go to the "Wi-Fi Catcher" category, and change that to "Off."
This will cause the laptop to completely ignore the hardware switch on the side, and force the card to stay on at all times. Now it doesn't matter if your switch is broken.
Meanwhile, if you never NEED to turn off your wireless card, you can just right click on it and disable it from within your network adapter settings.

Wireless switch


take a look in the device manager and see if the wireless card is proper installed ..you can download and install its driver again just to be sure ..and also ..in the network folder click change adapter settings ..and select the wireless card ..click on it ..and in its settings select enabled..(to do that click right on it ..and enable )
This should make it enabled all the time by default ..and only disable it when you need..from the button ..

Can not get my dlink to let my internet work after I have insalled it


Try these basic troubleshooting steps:
  • Change the channel on your access point or wireless router.
  • Change the location of your wireless products. Subtle changes (2-3 feet) can make a big difference. Do not put the access point or wireless router in a cabinet or enclosure.
  • 2.4GHz phones, X-10, and bluetooth devices will interfere with your wireless network. Change the location of the base for your phone, or downgrade to 900Mhz phones, or upgrade to 5.8GHz phones.
  • The wireless signal will degrade (or die completely) when going through brick (fireplace), metal (file cabinet), steel, lead, mirrors, water (fish tank), large appliances, glass, etc.
If your wireless connection is only dropping during large file transfers or when a large number of wireless clients are connecting, change the preamble on all wireless devices to short.

Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): Unknown error I get this message everytime I try to go to a site "itservices.pvcc.edu


For Windows users, go to Device Manager/Network Adapters/Atheros AR5007EG, and change the power management from Maximum to either normal or off. This helps some users but doesn't seem to help everyone.
With AC power disconnected, still had connection problems when changing power management to 'normal'. I recommend changing the Atheros power management to 'off'.

Another solution that seems to help some is to update the drivers for Atheros WLAN-card (on Windows).

If you need to conserve power, you can turn 'off' the 'wireless' by sliding the momentary switch at the front of the PC (near the wireless LED indicators) to the right once. To turn the wireless back 'on', slide the switch to the right again. An indication on the LCD will tell you if the wireless is 'enabled' or 'disabled' every time you slide the switch. I hope this helped vote

Samsung nc10 netbook will not connect wireless network


I know you posted this a long time ago (5 or 6 months), but just for future reference with other having this same problem or if you just gave up on connecting it wirelessly, here's the scoop. The Samsung NC10 netbook will not connect wirelessly and will sometimes tell you to make sure the the Wireless Switch is "On". However, there's no indication of where this magic switch is. I looked all over my keyboard, the casing, etc. I feel foolish now, but at the time I thought surely there existed an obvious switch. NOPE! The switch is located in "Change Network Settings" or something like that, sorry I don't have the computer right in front of me (I prefer my MacBook). In the window that opens, first thing you will see is your wireless network card listed and a button next to it that says "Configure". Click the "Configure" button and when the window changes you will be able to switch your wireless connection from "Wireless Off" to "Wireless On".

How do I switch the wireless capability on?


on Toshibas, you have to press Fn key+F8 to activate/deactivate the WIFI card. There might also be a button on the side of your PC you need to switch on.
alternatively you can do it from the start menu, choose connections and open it. Right click on the WIFI connection and activate.

there are two..a mechanical one, and a firmware one..check the panel on your satellite pro, to see IF the wireless is illuminated. if not, find the switch on front or side of unit, and turn that on first.
