Need function ket number to turn on internetwork


I don't fully understand your question. Do you mean which function key on the keyboard (F1, F2, etc.) to turn on wireless internet? You usually do not use a function key for that purpose. There is usually a switch or button on the laptop somewhere to enable or disable the wireless internet. The switch might be on the front edge of the laptop or just above the keyboard. Or are you in need of the passcode to connect to a wireless network? If so your internet provider should have provided the passcode or you will need to contact them to get it. If you are trying to connect to someone else's Wi-Fi network they will have to provide the passcode.

Hp nc6120 wi-fi problem


Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look onboth sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can togglethe wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN functionkey located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit willhave the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a towerwith the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will displayWireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

Can not find the wi-fi key?


The wireless switch is located on the side or front of the laptop.

Once you have the switch turned on you can also use keystrokes to toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the bottom left of the keyboard then hit the correct key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) or it will have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). When you toggle the wireless it will display on the screen Wireless On or Wireless Off.

My Wi-Fi on Lenova Think Pad T60 is not working. I tried to update the drivers. Still not working.


What is it doing? Still not working could mean a lot of things!!! Is the computer connected to the wireless network? You've got to connect to the network before you can do anything. And most times the problem with connecting to the network is people key the network key or password wrong so the wireless just keeps on polling trying to connect.

Do you have the wireless turned on on the notepad? Sometimes there might be a wireless switch somewhere that you have to turn on. Also most times you can toggle the wireless On and Off by hitting the FN Function key and the corresponding F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. Most times the correct F1 thru F12 key will have a wireless icon signal on it sorta like ))))) or it may show a tower with the signals. Once you find the correct F1 thru F12 key to press then Press and Hold the FN Function key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key. If you look at your screen most times it will let you know if you've toggled the wireless by displaying Wireless On or Wireless Off.

I need to know what the keys f1-f12 keys usage.


The uses for the function (f1-f12) keys varies based on which program you have open at the time. Different programs use them for different things.

However, your computer also has some default uses for these keys when combined with pressing the fn (function) key.

fn + f1 locks computer

fn + f2 changes our power use profile

fn + f3 puts the computer to sleep

fn + f4 puts the computer into hibernation mode

fn + f5 changes the display/output mode

fn + f6 decreases the screen brightness

fn + f7 increases the screen brightness

fn + f8 enables/disables wireless connections

fn + f9 enables/disables the touch pad

fn + f10 turns the cursor overlay on/off

fn + f11 turns the numeric overlay on/off

fn + f12 turns scroll lock on/off

(Fn) key function


Hi,

Fn or Function key is used for your F1 up to F12 keys. Ex. Fn+F5 is to turn on the wireless capability. Fn key is like a shortcut for the functionality of the machine. You can also adjust brightness by pressing Fn+Up or Down arrow and for the Volume Fn+Left and Right arrow.

Wi fi button


Look carefully on your "Function" keys example, F1, F2, F3 to F12 that are located above your keyboard. On each function keys, there is an icon. One of those is wi-fi. Find which function key has the wi-fi icon then find key to activate those functions. It is called "Fn" key (located in the bottom of your keyboard near "Ctrl" or "Alt"). Now press and hold "Fn" + "F#" then release. This should turn on your wi-fi. On mine, I have wi-fi on "F8" so I would press "Fn" + "F8".
