I guess you are asking the Wireless switch on your Advent Laptop.
If there's no dedicated switch or button on the system (the symbol looks like multiple waves or tower), then the switch should be Fn+F2. You have to press Fn+F8 simultaneously to activate the wireless. Pressing the keys again will deactivate the wireless.

If you need further help, let me know.

    Well, I am sorry, I've made a small mistake in my first post (third line "Fn F8" should be Fn F2), anyway, it's no longer important since it didn't work for you.

    I chatted with the moderator on the Advent Support forum (cheester), but not so sure which one exactly works. I got another key as Fn F4, you can give a try. Somewhere it's mentioned that Fn F5 does the trick, but for some it the OSD on the display.


    These are all what I know about Advent laptop Wireless switch.


    Good luck


    Once again thanks for using FixYa.

Intel advent 5303 battery no charge and laptop won't turn on any ideas. Thanks john.


Hello John, I would suggest to you that you remove the battery, plug the laptop into ac power and see if it boots. I think your battery may need replaced. If you can plug the laptop into ac power (power cord) without the battery and it boots for sure it is the battery. Anyway that is where I would start.

Where is the wireless switch on my advent 4211B netbook? I am being told I need to switch it on. If I need to press Fn and another key, do I press them at the same time?


Go to the Control Panel, click on "Device Manager", click on "Network Adapters" and select the wireless adapter you use. Right-click on it and select "Enable". That should turn it on.

I cannot turn on wireless capability


What's the make and model of laptop?
Does your keyboard have a wireless symbol on a key? Is there a wireless "ON" button somewhere on the puter?
You certain it came with wireless capability? If not you can plug in a USB wireless adapter for around $10.
