On some models there are manual switches but on most it will be one of the function keys and usually it will be in blue and the symbol of an antenna. to toggle this on and off hold the blue "FN" key usually located in the left corner of the keyboard then push the key with the antenna on it, There is usually a Icon in the control panel also that can do the same function. If you let me know what the make and model is I will look it up for you. Take care.. Be mucho blessed..Mark

HOW DO I TURN ON THE WIRELESS ON MY TOBISHA LAPTOP


If you're using a Toshiba laptop and you can't figure out how to enable WiFi you probably aren't alone. Thankfully there are several approaches you can take from a hardware and Windows Operating System stance to turn on your wireless connection while making sure you can properly connect to a wireless network.

      Look at the keyboard options on your laptop. You should see a button that looks like a small antenna. The button placement may vary from device to device. For instance, you may have a dedicated button or it may be placed much like the option circled in the picture to the left of this step.

      Click on the "Windows Start Button" and Navigate to "Control Panel" then click on "Network Connections" or "Network and Sharing" depending on your version of Windows.

      Right-click on your wireless connection icon once the "Network Connections" window opens. Choose "Enable" and left-click on that option with your mouse. Wait for the wireless connection to enable.

      Alternatively you can try clicking on the " Windows Start Button" and then clicking on "Connect to," where you will click on "Show all connections." When the connection window opens up, you should right-click on "Wireless Network Connection" and then choose "Enable." Now right-click on "Wireless network connections" and then choose "View Available Wireless Networks" to see if your WiFi adapter is enabled.


Hope this was helpfull

Wireless switch does not turn on wireless light


Make sure that the hardware manager shows that it is enabled.

Right click on "Computer", select "Properties", "select Device Manager", look under "network adapters" and see if it is enabled.

Can't enable Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card


I had the exact same problem and went through the same steps that he did. It was only when I searched for a physical wireless switch (on the left side of my Dell D630) that the problem was solved. I didn't even know it was there and must have inadvertently knocked into the off position.

How to enable wireless in BIOS for my compaq nc 6220


It needs to be enabled in the OS not in BIOS. There are several options in the OS to enable it.
1. By turning on the switch (#3 on the image below)

2. On the Device Manager (right-click on MyComputer, properties, Hardware tag, Device Manager) right-click on the Wireless Network adapter and select Enable.

3. If it is enabled, then disable and uninstall it and then install it and enable it.

If any of this fix it, then you may want to check if it is a hardware failure.

Can't find wireless hardware switch


I found someone locally who could tell me where the hardware switch was phyically located. I had thought that this was a software switch, but it's actually a button on the keyboard of the laptop, but it isn't labeled and, since I bought the laptop as a refurb on eBay, I didn't have a user manual to tell me where the switch is located.

Wireless does not show up in Network Connections


Did you try - after switching on the "antenna switch" or WiFi hardware - to "Enable" the WiFi adapter, under (XP) Start - Settings - Network Connections - LAN or High-Speed Internet - Wireless Network Connection? (select, right click and select Enable)?

p.s. Once your WiFi hardware is recognized (by Win XP) there is (should be) always a "Wireless Network Connection" in your Network Connections, enabled or disabled, active or not.
