How do u find the button to make sure the wireless is on


Hi there!
Depend on the brand of laptops, the position of wireless button is located in different places. Most of the cases, it stays in the front or in the left side of your laptop. It will have the sign or word written to let you know which way to turn on or off the wireless adapter. There is also a wireless light to confirm that the wireless is on or off. And the Fn + Fwireless to turn the wireless adapter on or off too.
So you have : when wireless button is set to Off, whatever you do on laptop still not make the wireless working.
If wireless button is set to On, you still need to press Fn+Fwireless to turn on the wireless.

I don't know you understand or not because it quite messy explaination. I don't know why all laptops have to have 2 places to turn on and off wireless adapter. One place is enough.
Hope this will help.Thanks for reading

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

document:

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 d630 (D6xx?) latitude: toggle switch on the left side towards the front by the PCMCIA slots and headphone

jack

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.

The bluetooth turns on using FN + F11 it should turn the wireless too but doesn't MSI U100


As per the manual the FN and F11 keys turn on both Bluetooth and Wireless so you need to try it will turn bluetooth and then it will turn on wireless, you can check them by LEDS

Press and hold the Fn button, and then press the F11 button
repeatedly to enable or disable the Wireless LAN or Bluetooth function
recurrently.

Wireless LAN and Bluetooth:
�� Wireless LAN LED indicator glows green when Wireless LAN function is
enabled.
�� Bluetooth LED indicator glows blue when Bluetooth function is enabled.
�� Both LED indicators glow green and blue at the same time when both
functions are enabled.
�� Both LED indicators go out when both functions are disabled.
�� Note: For flight safety consideration, make sure these two LED indicators
go out when you are in flight.

Let me know if you are able to turn the wireless on

Also i will suggest you check in device manager that you wireless adapter is enabled

NO WIRELESS CONNECTION


I am aboutsure about the question, but what i understood is wireless switch location

First close your laptop, then look the front view where the speaker is located, From the left

1.Speakers Left and right speakers deliver stereo audio
output.

2 Power indicator Lights up when the computer is on.

3 Battery indicator Lights up when the battery is being charged
.
4 Bluetooth communication
button/indicator (for
selected models)
Press to enable/disable the Bluetooth
function. Indicates the status of Bluetooth
communication (optional).


5 Wireless communication
button/indicator
Press to enable/disable the wireless function.
Indicates the status of wireless LAN
communication (optional).


6 Line-in jack Accepts audio line-in devices (e.g., audio CD
player, stereo walkman).


7 Mic-in jack Accepts inputs from external microphones.


So your wireless switch is the 5th one from the left. Locate it and turn on the wireless, and try to connet to the router.
Try this, hope it may work,
