    I am getting the same message, but my wireless "switch" on the front is on. If I restart, the light is on and the wireless connection often works long enough for me to see my home page. Then it cuts out. Mine is a PCG7113L

Not sure what kind of laptop you have, but on some models check to make sure that the actual physical "switch" is turned on. Usually located in the front or side of the laptop. Sometimes there is a little wireless logo located above the keyboard somewhere. And other times its set as a "function" key. If you see a wireless logo on a F-key (say for example F5), press and HOLD the FN key (FN stands for function, usually located on the lower left of the keyboard) and the corresponding F-key. Hope this helps!

Wireless network connection ,says that no wireless network were found in range


Look on your function keys there could be a radio tower symbol. If you have one press and hold the FN button ( left side on the bottom of keyboard ) and then press the button with the tower on it that should turn on / off your wireless. you may also have a switch on the sides or front which maybe turned off also check for that.

Cannot the wireless internet setup


Hi kschmerer,

I understand that you are not able to setup the Wireless Network Connection in your Computer.
To fix this issue, please make sure that the Physical Wireless Switch on the Computer is turned ON and then try connecting the Computer to the Wirelss Network.

You can locate the Physical Wireless Switch on the front side of the Computer. Please move the switch toward right side to turn it ON.

Once the Physical Wireless Switch is turned ON, please try setting up the Wireless Network Connection.

If you are not able to to connect to Wireless Network Connection after switching on the Physical Wireless LAN Switch, try using the Wireless Switch Setting Utility.

To enable the Wireless Network Connection using the Wireless Device Switch Utility, please double-click the Wireless Device Switch icon on the right corner of the Taskbar. Then in the open Wireless Device Switch window, please click to check the box next to Enable 2.4Ghz Wireless LAN.

This should fix the issue.

Please post back if you have any questions or require further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Right under screen there should be a button, or the f8 key I think is another one. You can also search you computer for Wireless Assistant which will turn it on for you.

My laptop wont connect to any wireless connection at all anymore, but I can plug it in to the ethernet and it works. the wireless switch is turned on and when i try to connect to any connection and it says...


Hello.

For your wireless card problem, be certain that your wireless access is turned on. Often there is a switch (location depending on the model) to to turn wireless off and on.

Then, if still a problem, I'd suggest to go to Device Manager. Right-click your wireless network card and select Update to update the driver.

If still a problem, go back to Device Manager. This time delete the wireless network card, restart your computer and see if the problem resolved.

If still a problem, replace your wireless card.

Hope this helps.

There may be a switch to turn the wireless on and off - it will usually have an antenna icon next to it.

Wireless connectivity


possible reasons that it is "off"

Physical switch on outside of case that has a turn on and turn off function. Make sure this is turned on.

Go to network places and find the connection that says wireless (or something similiar), it should say Enabled, if not then enable it.

Acer Aspire 6930 wireless on off switch


The wireless card has dropped the IP address, to get the wireless router to issue the wireless card with a new IP address, right click on the wireless connection (the one with the red X) and left click on Repair.
When the red X disappears then you can connect to the Internet.
