How do I turn on wireless capability


To enable or disable wireless functions, you must use the Hot Key combination of "Fn" + "F8". This means to press and hold the "Fn" key (near the windows key), and the press the "F8". This is a toggling function. Each time you press the key, it will turn on or turn off the function. Look for the Wireless Light to ensure that the wireless activated.

The wireless capability won't turn on, wheres the switch? advent 5303


I guess you are asking the Wireless switch on your Advent Laptop.
If there's no dedicated switch or button on the system (the symbol looks like multiple waves or tower), then the switch should be Fn+F2. You have to press Fn+F8 simultaneously to activate the wireless. Pressing the keys again will deactivate the wireless.

If you need further help, let me know.

How to switch wireless on


To activate and deactivate the wireless, you have to press and hold down the Fn key while you press the F2 once. If it's already activated, this will turn Off the wireless or if it's deactivated (Off) this will turn it On. This shortcut key is more or less the same on almost all the New Asus Laptops.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I need an explanation as to the secondary function of the keys on my NB305. Mainly the top row of 'F' keys, but the remainder of the keyboard as well. What do all these little symbols on the keys mean?


F1 through F12 are called function keys because they execute programmed functions when pressed. Used in combination with the Fn key, keys marked with icons execute specific functions on the computer. The function executed by individual keys depends on the software you are using.





1. Sound Mute: Pressing Fn + ESC in a windows environment turns sound on or off. Press Fn + Enter to simulate Enter or the enhanced keyboard's numeric keypad. 2. Instant security: Press Fn + F1 to blank the screen to prevent others from accessing your data. To restore the screen and original setting, press any key or press the Touch Pad. 3. Power save mode: Pressing Fn + F2 changes the power save mode. 4. Standby: When you press Fn + F3, the computer enters Standby. 5. Hibernation: When you press Fn + F4, the computer enters Hibernation. 6. Display selection: Press Fn + F5 to change the active display device. Hold down Fn and press F5 again to change the device. 7. Internal LCD screen Brightness: Pressing Fn + F6 decreases the display brightness in decrements. 8. Internal LCD screen Brightness: Pressing Fn + F7 increases the display brightness in increments. 9. Wireless setting: If your computer has both Bluetooth and Wireless LAN functions, you can press Fn + F8 to select which type of wireless communication you want to use. 10. Touch Pad: Pressing Fn + F9 in a windows environment enables or disables the Touch Pad function. 11. Press Fn + F10 or Fn + F11 to access the integrated keypad. When activated, the keys with gray markings on the bottom edge become numeric keypad keys (Fn + F11) or cursor control keys (Fn + F10). The power on default for both settings is off. Press Fn + F12 (ScrLock) to lock the cursor on a specific line. The power on default is off. 12. TOSHIBA Zooming Utility (reduce): To reduce the icon size on the desktop or the application window, press the 1 key while holding down the Fn key. (13. TOSHIBA Zooming Utility (enlarge): To enlarge the icon size on the desktop or the application window, press the 2 key while holding down the Fn key.

Have a dell d610. its not picking up the wireless modem in house. worked yesterday. prompting me for wireless switch. and the light/activity/wi-fi light is not on. is there a switch or function key i need...


Your Dell has the ability to turn the wifi on and off using the Fn key (lower left on your keyboard) and (If I remember correctly) the F2 key--anyway, it's the function key that has a little picture of a "radio antenna" on it. Hold down the Fn key and then press that other key. The wireless network should then be active.
