Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

My computer will not connect to the internet. It says "turn on wireless capability, wireless capability is turned off". then it explains that it is either a switch in the front or side of the computer (which we cannot find any switches) if there is no switch a function key sequence will toggle this activation. What is the function key sequence? Rhonda

    1 Slide the integrated wireless device switch from left to right on the front of your laptop then
    2 Press Fn + F5 (together) to make a configuration.

    search for your wireless network and select the one you know as yours then if it asks for a security key give it the one you have and then it will connect

I don't know how to turn on the wireless capability on myself?


What type of computer Desktop or Laptop & Make ???...

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.

How can i connect to the internet with a router on my epic 1314 notebook


make sure that the internet service is on,
connect the ethernet port from router to the computer ethernet port.

if you have wireless capabilities on router and the notebook, you can connect them wirelessly by turning on the router, turning on wireless switch on computer, searching for network from start>control panel>network and connections> click on search for a network.

if this does not work, contact internet provider, they should have router ip address and other things so they can help you better.

Wireless capability turned off


What you are seeing is the offline web page view. It is not actual internet unless you can search through different sites. There should be a light just below your screen what will allow you to turn wireless on or off. Or search your computer files for wireless assistant aka WLAN
