Welcome to Fixya.

You might have turned it off by pressing Fn F2. Press Fn F2 to turn it back on. If it does not work, check the wireless card adapter's driver in Device Manager. It is possible that it may have been uninstalled for some reason.

  1. Go to Start.
  2. Right Click My Computer.
  3. Click on Properties.
  4. Click Hardware tab
  5. Click Device Manager.
  6. On Network Adapter, check if this has a yellow question mark, which is an indication of a driver problem. If you see this question mark, download the driver from Asus.
*Make sure to choose the right product type and model and operating system.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please feel free to come back.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Can't turn on wifi for my asus n53s

There are two ways that Wireless connection can be turned on or off. Make sure the Wi-Fi switch on the right side (next to the CD/DVD-RW tray) is positioned in the "on " position. This switch should be your first check, as it also overrides the keyboard activation settings. If it is already in the "on" position, and it still doesn't work, you will have to turn it on via a soft-key combination [fn] + [F2], while in Windows. This will pop up a graphic icon, onscreen, for both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. If they are "off", they will be shown in combination with a red circle with a slash through it. If they are active/on, it will be just the corresponding icon, without the "circle-slash." Use the touchpad or mouse to click on the wireless device you want to turn on or off. (Both, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi can be used at the same time, or individually.) Now you should be ready to connect to another wireless device. :)

The wireless network won't connect

Yes, the switch is at the back.

The LifeBook S is equipped with a Wi-Fi (802.11b) receiver; the antennas are inside a long, black plastic panel that runs along the top edge of the lid. The wireless receiver's on/off switch is on the back of the notebook, where the power switch was located in earlier models. Meanwhile, the power switch has moved to a more convenient location on the side of the unit, next to the FireWire port.

Wireless LAN/ Bluetooth ON/OFF Switch
The switch allows you to turn on and off the Wireless LAN/ Bluetooth communications. Slide the switch to the right to turn it on, or slide the switch to the left to turn it off.

Asus A6 laptop

Try clicking on Start->Run Then type in: services.msc and click ok. When the window opens, scroll down to the bottom where you should see Wireless Zero Configuration. Make sure this service is started. If not, start it, then go and try your wireless again. If it IS on... then you may want to try reinstalling your wireless card/adapter.

When you go to Network Connections, right click on the wireless connection and on the Advanced tab, make sure the box is checked to let Windows Configure Your Wireless Connection.
