You may not have a physical switch.
Your laptop could just use the Fn + special function key combo.
Press the Fn key (lower left on the keyboard) and the special function key that has a little icon that looks like an antenna. That should turn it on and off.
also, be sure that, in device manager, the wireless adapter is enabled.

GET better wifi signals

I live in the country it is hard to get a signal with my laptop or desk top which is wireless. I have found a solutiom an outdoor panel antenna witha 45db gain adapter booster. i can now pick signals up from almost two miles away from my friends. its very good and works flawless i couldnt get a signal before no matter what i did. Please do not connect to some one you dont have permission to always get permission its to use them to gain access to some one else but not to use or have. FCC rules. please dont do most states. , they are inexpensive and sure do boost performance. great buy..

How to add extra wireless devices

Are you referring to adding another wifi router? if so, the easiest thing is to get a switch. Hook the modem to the swithc, then both wirelss routers to the switch.. you can give them the same passphrase so that your laptop or smartphone can swithc from one to the other without an issue. However, if you hook up a router to another router, then the second router needs a static address and the gateway would be the ip of first router. Little more complicated but doable.

It was working and suddenly when I press togather the key Fn and F1 on my laptop Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 2727 ms2228 with windows Vista it does'nt swith on The WIFI. Thanks to answer me at the adress...

I had that problem, i couldnt switch on my wifi with the fn/f1 keys. The cause was i think a vista update, though im not sure which one it was because the laptop was given to me, and id not been privy to the update history... so i reinstalled vista from the image on the harddrive, pressed fn and f1 and the wifi was activated fine.. a million updates latter i tried it and>> nothing...I tried everything and still nothing lol...I then reinstalled vista (again lol), and then tried it, and>> bingo :) bottom line, find out what update is causing this and uninstall it (if that's possable) or just reinstall here's the key, there's a new bios update for the amilo ms2228 which rememebers the state of your last wifi comand, and maintanes it, in other words, update the bios, then activate the wifi, and it should stay on, (it did on mine) then go to windows update and reinstall all your updates (assuming you have just reinstalled vista or located and removed the offeding update) a final note, after i had updated the bios, reinstalled vista, , switched on wifi, and then completly updated vista, i could no longer switch off the wifi, which is suppose is better than not being able to switch it on in the first place lol :P

Acer Aspire 5570 wireless

Guys if you are having this issue you should open up the back panel and locate the wireless card and try to reseat it maybe it could be loose and goes on and off with movement. Secondy while youre at it make sure there are no burn marks or damaged saughter however you spell it damages on the wifi board. Third you can try to get a USB adapter from like best buy and since they give you 30 days return policy you can try it and see if you get internet access through it that way .If you do then you can pin point it could be your wireless card or the motherboards controller where it connects to. Also make sure the BIOS wifi option is enabled and working some people have uinstalled the wifi utility from acer and just use the windows built in wireless utility and have had success connection that way . You have acouple solutions and trials to do so get at it and hope this helped lead you on the right track.
