Question about Computers & Internet
Trying to enable wireless-----where is hardware switch? Is it in the manual??
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

Tips for a great answer:
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.
Difficulty: Easy Instructions
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
