Question about Computers & Internet

More help needed pls !!!

Hi there,

you very kindly posted a response to my previous query: "Only way to enable WLAN feature on my Fuji laptop is to hit Fn / F1 whch then runs a program enabling me to switch on wireless or bluetooth. Can someone tell me what program hitting Fn / F1 runs (so that I can create a desktop shortcut rathe than hitting Fn / F1 as I often use the laptop via separate keyboard / monitor with the lid closed)."

You suggested I should "make change in my hot keys program". Not sure what / where this is. The laptop came pre-configured with the Fn / F1 key set to start my "Wireless Status Option" software (there's a symbol on the F1 key of a wireless symbol).

Presumably there's a program somewhere that let's me configure the Fn keys - any idea what / where it might be ?

Cheers in Advance.

I am not the first one that helped you.

If you have a program for your wireless you should be able to bypass the button. You can also check in your BIOS to see if there is a way to keep it on. To get into the BIOS you will have to hit the DEL key or one of the F keys.

How to enable WLAN in compaq CQ61

One of the people here posted a response, more than a year prior to your question, which comes very close to being the right response for your situation - you must change the settings on your network adapter, which you can find in Control Panel.

However, not knowing which version of Windows OS you have been working with, and other information about the PC you have been trying to use for WLAN, it is extremely difficult to offer you a response which will unequivocally fix your problem.

If you post more information, specific to your configuration, then one of us here will be able to guide you to the right solution.

Please, put more information up for us to look at, and then we might be able to resolve your WLAN issue.

Hi i have a u135 and it hasbuilt in blue tooth but i donot know how to activate could u help

Not sure if this will work for your model but its worth a try. Copied from MSI support faq website
You have to press the WLAN button located right next to the power button in order to enable/disable the Bluetooth function. Press WLAN button once, Enable WLAN. Press WLAN button twice, Enable Bluetooth. Press WLAN button thrice, Enable both WLAN and Bluetooth. Press WLAN button four times, Disable both WLAN and Bluetooth.

Does this laptop have a wireless card? I am

Go to START, Control Panel, System, Hardware and search the listing for network cards and see if you laptop shows a wireless card. If it does than you should be able to go to Network Connections and see if you can scan for wireless connections.

Sometimes these laptop need special drivers to enable their wireless card features or hardware based on/off switches for the radios.

Your computers bios might also have the WLAN turned off. Watch the start screen for the button to press for bios and push it and look around to see if there is a WLAN on/off feature and make sure its on.

Good luck and be careful!

For a Compaq Presario V3780TU Notebook PC, the Bluetooth driver is incorporated in the HP Wireless Assistant, a user application that provides a way to control the enablement of the radios for individual wireless devices (such as Bluetooth, WLAN, or WWAN devices) and that shows the state of the radios for these wireless devices

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Internet access with wireless


Assuming that your laptop has a built-in WiFi Networking card (or even a USB or PCMCIA WiFi adapter), normally its a matter of setting your Network configuration to "Auto obtain IP address automatically". This could be done in your Control Panel/Networking Connections, right click on your wireless Networking, click on Properties, highlight Internet protocol (TCP/IP), click on the Properties button and tick "Obtain...".

In some instances you might need to key in the WEP or WPA security key if it has been enabled and set in your WiFi router, though it has been known to slow down connections. If on the otherhand the router has its MAC filter enabled, then you would need to add your laptop's WiFi MAC numbers to the list that the router would allow access to.

Should the above be not corrective of your concern, pls post back with the make & model of your router, laptop, and the WiFi adapter if external/add-on. Knowing your Operating System would also help.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
