You need to be more specific when you post a question: eg. laptop/pc model and Operating system.
Hot Keys including Wireless on/off are specific to a Laptop and are 'programmed' to function: re-installed the Hot (or Smart) keys driver that came with the laptop. If you don't have the installation drivers CD/DVD, you can always download it FREE from the manufacturer site.
Hope it helps and let me know if this information is useful.

How do I turn on wireless capability


To enable or disable wireless functions, you must use the Hot Key combination of "Fn" + "F8". This means to press and hold the "Fn" key (near the windows key), and the press the "F8". This is a toggling function. Each time you press the key, it will turn on or turn off the function. Look for the Wireless Light to ensure that the wireless activated.

I need to find the wireles switch on my laptop. satelittec650 .se no , 78135612q


Look on both sides of the computer and in front to see if you see a wireless switch. If so turn it on.
Also there are keystrokes that you can use to turn the wireless on. On most systems you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the correct key (F1 thru F8) that controls the wireless. The correct key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Once you hit the correct keys the screen will probably display a message saying Wireless On or Wireless Off.
I just scanned through one of the Satellite C650 models and it said the wireless key to hit was FN + F8

Try to do the following:

1. Look for the physical wireless switch in front of the computer and turn it ON (usually a knob or a slide switch)
2. Try to press Fn+Wireless Key (can be from F1-F12 - try the combinations Fn+F2 or Fn+F8 or Fn+F5)

Good luck.

When you say oyu cant turn on the wireless switch does that mean after flicking the switch usually located on the front or side of the laptop it sitll doesnt work. or have you tried holding the function key (fn) and hit the wireless symbol key on your keyboard it looks like the letter i with circles around itusually on the f8 key. by holding fn then f8 key it should turn it back on

My wireless wont turn on on medion akoya E5211 ... i need to turn on my wireless connection switch and dont know how or where it is


I had the same problem so I rang Medion & they told me go to the Medion website and download "Launch Manager" from your driver page. It's a program that turns on all of the Fn keys. Thus making the wireless (Fn+F1) work as well as the brightness (Fn+F8 or F9).
This is the only way to get it to work

To enable the Wireless LAN Fn + F2

usually the wifi function key has the universal antenna symbol with radio waves emanating from it.

The manual says the other hotkeys are:

Fn + F2 - Wireless LAN
Fn + F3 - Standby
Fn + F4 - External display
Fn + F7 - Reduce brightness
Fn + F8 - Increase brightness
Fn + F9 - Play / pause media
Fn + F10 - Stop media
Fn + F11 - Media previous chapter
Fn + F12 - Media Next Chapter
Fn + scroll - Scroll Lock
