    Kim, need to know the Operating system from which your error message came - which version of MS Windows (they're vastly different at the systems level), or Linux, or Apple OS?

    Also would like to know the mfr

I am trying to connect leapfrog leapstar to computer and follow application but when I connect usb with computer the leapstar says Please click "Eject button" Where is the eject button? I've...

The Eject button appears when a Leapster2 handheld is connected and turned on. When you have finished configuring the Leapster2 handheld and your child wants to play with it, you can click the Eject button to disconnect the device. Once ejected, a message will appear letting you know that it is safe to disconnect the Leapster2 handheld from the computer. It is not really a "button" but a picture of a green button which says "EJECT". It should be located on the upper right corner of your screen.

Can't connect to wifi.

make sure your wifi card is enabled/turned on. If yuor laptop has a wifi switch, set it to On position, Then make sure you are within the wireless range. Try moving closer to the router and make sure the correct wireless profile is configured and set up on your laptop with the correct passkey/password.

Verify as well that your OS detects your wifi card correctly. An update to the wifi driver may also help.

My lap is acer aspire one notebook.when turns on,its wi-fi launches automatically. how can i solve this???

don't you have a WiFi button on your laptop to disable WiFi?

we have to use the touchpoint on the top of keyboard to turn off.
Swith is sometimes SIDEWAYS also depending on the model .

Go into the network and sharing centre then change adaptor settings right click the wireless adaptor and choose disable. this should stop it - just remember you did it if you ever need to use it

If in case there is no button .
In this notebook there isnt WiFi button, it starts when you press Fn+F3, actually the menu comes and then you turn on or off by use of command.

The best way to do this is to go to the Network and Sharing center, look upper left and click on "Manage Wireless Networks" click on the wireless network connection you want to keep from connecting automatically and uncheck the box to connect automatically like the picture below shows. Hope this helps

WLAN and Mute button lights are not on

Usually the wlan button is off because you're WLAN is not on, you need to locate this button and press it to enable your WLAN. The button is usually located on either the upper left or upper right corner of your keyboard. You will know if you hit the correct button because you'll get a pop up on the lower left corner of your screen saying that WLAN is on.

You can click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > Run > on the Run Window type in services.msc > press enter > then scroll and look for WLAN Configuration > it has a start or stop option, make sure that the button start is grayed out or press on start to enable wlan

you sould be getting a message again telling you that wlan is enable or already on

Hope this help you a bit. Have a great day

Acer 4720,when switched on wifi button,the light for wifi is flash and the funcion is worked.But switched off wifi button,the light is still on.How can i switch off the light?

For Windows Based Computers

If the drivers for the wireless adapter contain a setting to toggle wireless radio, it can be located using the

following path: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Right click Wireless Network Connection Icon > Properties >

Configure > Advanced tab

Here you will find a textbox with a list of selectable properties that are populated by the device driver. Once you

select a property there will be a value field with a dropdown box containing configuration options that apply to that

specific property. The name of the wireless radio property may vary because the listed properties are dependent on

each specific device driver. It should be fairly intuitive to determine the correct property if you simply have the user

read all the listed properties to you.

Many laptop manufacturers will place a physical switch on the outside casing of the laptop, so that the user can

easily toggle wireless radio. Sometimes these switches get accidentally turned off, or intentionally turned off and the

end user forgets to switch it back. The best practice in these situations is to ask the user to look for a physical switch

on the case of the laptop, possibly with a symbol of a radio tower next to it. After turning the wireless switch on, the

user will probably need to refresh their network list.

Laptops built by certain manufacturers may have a specific keystroke set up to toggle wireless radio.

Below are some examples of wireless radio software and hardware toggles that we have been able to


Acer (General) - FN,F5

ASUS (General) -The F5R has a toggle switch to turn on and off the WIFI; it is located on the left side of the


Dell (General) - FN,F2 or FN,F8 or FN,F12
Dell d630 (D6xx?) latitude: toggle switch on the left side towards the front by the PCMCIA slots and headphone


E-machine (General) - FN,F2

Fujitsu (General) - FN,F10

HP/Compaq (General Older models) - Button on upper left on keyboard deck
HP/Compaq (General Newer models) - Button on lower left below keyboard

IBM thinkpad (General) - Most have software switch or button on left hand side.
IBM thinkpad (model not further identified) with wireless switch on front edge of case.

Sony Vaio (General) - switch on front left

Toshiba (General) - FN,F5 or FN,F8 or switch
Toshiba Satelite has a physycal switch on front of case. FN+F8 shows wether wireless communications is

enabled or disabled.

For MAC/Apple Based Computers

MAC OS X 10.4.x (Tiger & Earlier)
Open MAc Hard Drive > Applications > Utilities folder > Set the Configure pull-down to Airport.
Make sure the "Airport Power:" says On. (This is the status or your Mac's Airport card.)
If not, click "Turn Airport On" button.

MAC OS X 10.5.x (Leopard)
Click on the: Apple Icon > System Preferences > Network > Airport > Airport Power - On/Off

My wifi dont recognized ,, it is the correct wifi card,, but the blue light just dont go on,, its connected right, what can i do ??

Assuming your wifi inside your home is setup correct and other can connect to it ok.

You will want to make sure that you can see other wifi signals. A good test is to head to your local Starbucks and see if you can pick up their in-store wifi. If so, I would assume that your wifi inside your home is messed up and may require configuration by your local "tech guy."

Along the top of the keyboard, there should be some touch sensitive buttons. If your wifi light (looks like a small image of an antennae) is orange, then you will need to press that button and turn your wifi on.
