Go into the wireless configuration and see if the radio is enabled. The switch is for manually enabling and disabling the radio, if the radio has been disabled in the configuration then the switch will not work. The other thing you can do is, uninstall the wireless drivers from the device manager and reboot. The machine will find the wireless and reinstall the drivers. This should get it back up and running. NOTE- the radio is the terminology used for the wireless receiver, since the wireless card works on frequency it is considered a radio.

Wireless switch is broken cannot turn on wireless adapter


Dear Friend,

If the wireless switch broke, you might need a flash light and something very thin and long to turn it back on. Now, if the switch attached to the motherboard broke as well you need to think about getting another motherboard.

You might want to consider and external USB or PCDM wireless card if you cannot turn it on.

Good Luck!

Internet wireless card


It's possible that the wireless driver is not installed or the wireless card is turned off in the bios or defective.

1. Check if the the driver is installed. Go to start. Right click 'My computer'. Left click properties. click hardware. click device manager. If there is a red 'X' on the wireless driver. Right click it and click enable. If there is a question mark on network controller or wireless driver. Click this link and choose the model of your laptop to get the wireless driver. Run the file to install the driver. Restart the computer if instructed then see if it worked.

2. If the light still wont turn on, go to the bios. You can do this by turning the computer off. Turn it on and repeatedly tap F2 right after pressing the power button. You should get a screen where you can change the settings. Click this link and choose your laptop's model and look for the instructions on how to turn on the wireless card in the bios. You may also browse the BIOS screen for that setting. Once you've set it to on, save the changes and restart the computer.

Are you trying to access your laptop (which you leave at home) from another computer away from home?
  • If so, head over to www.logmein.com and sign up for a free account. It's a wonderfully easy way to get remote control of your machine from another location without worrying about the networking.
Are you trying to use your laptop on the road and still have Internet?
  • If so, you will need some method for your laptop to connect to the Internet. If your laptop has a wireless WiFi card you can go to some location that has wireless internet. Many locations (such as hotels, cafes, and coffee houses) have free or paid wireless Internet service.
  • You can also get a Wireless Aircard as your friend said. These are a fee-based service from cell companies such as Verizon or Sprint that give you a card that plugs into your laptop and uses the wireless cell network to give you Internet access.
