Turn wireless switch fn


Hello Raymond,
If your system does not have a wireless button on the right side of the laptop that turns the wireless on and off then you would turn it on by the key stroke below.
You can press the Fn + F2 key to turn wireless On or Off. Use Windows Mobility Center in the con.trol panel to check the status of the wireless connection.
Thank You,

Turning on wireless


Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look onboth sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can togglethe wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN functionkey located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit willhave the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a towerwith the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will displayWireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.
On some laptops there will be a button just above the keyboard or on the side or in front of the laptop..

Do you have the belkin configured for wireless? Do other laptops in the house pick up the belkin?

How do u find the button to make sure the wireless is on


Hi there!
Depend on the brand of laptops, the position of wireless button is located in different places. Most of the cases, it stays in the front or in the left side of your laptop. It will have the sign or word written to let you know which way to turn on or off the wireless adapter. There is also a wireless light to confirm that the wireless is on or off. And the Fn + Fwireless to turn the wireless adapter on or off too.
So you have : when wireless button is set to Off, whatever you do on laptop still not make the wireless working.
If wireless button is set to On, you still need to press Fn+Fwireless to turn on the wireless.

I don't know you understand or not because it quite messy explaination. I don't know why all laptops have to have 2 places to turn on and off wireless adapter. One place is enough.
Hope this will help.Thanks for reading

Wireless quit working on Hp PV9720 laptop. Wireless button is on (and light is blue indicating it is on).


Turn your wireless router off.
Wait 13 seconds.
Turn your wireless router on.
Try again to make a wireless connection.
Find a friend with an iPod Touch or iPhone or laptop,
and see if they can make a wireless connection to your router.
If not, your router is the problem (maybe, it needs to be configured?).

Take your laptop to someplace (public library or Starbucks) that offers "free wireless". Can you connect your laptop to that network? If so, your laptop's hardware is OK.

My laptop cant browse when using wifi(chrome, firefox explore)I get the cant resolve host error. I am able to connect to the wireless router. I am able to browse if connected using ethernet. other wireless...


You are probably right. Your laptop is not playing well with others.
First check to see if your wireless adapter on your laptop is turned on.
Then click the icon that controls the wireless connections to see if you can see your network. If you can, click on the network name and see if you can log on.
Next, temporarily turn off any internet security programs you have to see if you are experiencing a firewall issue. Check to see if Windows firewall is turned on for the wireless connection. If so, turn it off until you connect.

Wireless radio disabled


If you have a laptop and it has built in wireless adapter, it may have a switch or a button that you need to switch on in to turn on the wireless connection radio. Usually, it can be found on the sides or on the front panel of the laptop. On other laptops, you will need to hit some combination of keys on the laptop's keyboard to turn on the wireless connection radio, for example, Fn+F5. Please refer to the manual of your laptop for reference on how to turn on or enable its wireless radio.

By the way, what is the model of your laptop?
