How to turn on the wireless card on Sony pcg11211L


If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on.

Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks.

This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop.

When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks.

If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off.

Locate the wireless switch on your computer.

It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front.
If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit.

Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position.
The switch will be clearly labeled.

Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on.
If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability.

The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys.

Check your user manual for your computer's key combination.

To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and then click Repair.

How do i set up my hp laptop to wifi


Please Understand wireless network settings and setup:

Wireless networks depend on special-purpose radio receivers and transmitters that substitute the exchange of messages over the air for the exchange of messages that occurs over wired connections on conventional networks. When you power on your PC, Windows Vista automatically searches for available wireless networks.
The network icon in the system tray, shown in Figure 1, enables you to view a list of local networks that Windows Vista detects. Notice that the network icon in this figure is marked with a red X, which indicates no network connection is currently established.

Figure 1: A red X indicates no network connection is active.
When you click this icon, a window opens indicating you're not connected to a wireless network, as shown in Figure 2.
hpsmb_laptoppcwireless-fg02.jpg Figure 2: The detail window for the network icon provides a link to create a network connection. The window also includes two hyperlinks: Connect to a network and Network and Sharing Center. Click the Connect to a network link to open the Connect to a network window, shown in Figure 3.

No speaker sound


There sometimes are three connectors on a sound card that are similar. A speaker output, microphone input, and stereo headphone output.

Try all three, if you accidentally put it on the microphone input you won't get sound output of that one, so try another.

Also, check in the speaker control panel for the sound to be checked to mute or volume turned all the way down.

Dear sir i am un able to enable my lg note book model xnoterd400's wireless adopeter


Good day,

There should be a switch on the outside of your notebook that disables and enables the wireless adapter. Sometimes it is a toggle switch and sometimes it is a combination of the function (Fn) key and one of the keys at the top: F1, F2, F3, et cetera. Look for an icon that resembles either an antenna or a computer with sets of lines around it. Once you enable the hardware switch, you should be able to go to your Network Connections and double-click the wireless connection to enable it.

Have XP operating system, Comcast service, Airport extreme router and a Linksys wireless N antenna. Windows say: Cannot configure this wireless connection. What's wrong?


another program is using the wireless utility, you may find this program in start menu / programs / ... open this program and you will be able to connect to your WLAN - also check your tool bar near the clock - an icon for the WLAN may be there,

if you would like windows manage your wireless you may need to enable the wireless zero configuration service within admin tools / services
