Hi there.

On your taskbar (besides the clock), do you see a WLAN icon (wireless software icon) from your card? When you right click it, there should be "enable wireless" or "Turn radio on".

Just for clarification as well:

Does your laptop computer can connect to other networks (signal) or hotspot?

Is that the only computer that can't connect to your wireless router or there are many?

Thanks!

Where do I find the wireless button on an IBM thinkpad X31?


Some laptops don't have a wireless button or switch. If that's the case they control the wireless by keystrokes. Look onboth sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on. Look on both sides and in front for a wireless button. Look just above the keyboard for a wireless button.

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.

K53e asus laptop wireless switch where is it


The switch on most laptops is on either side or at the front. Sometimes it will be a switch to slide, or it might be a button to press.

Some laptops may not have a switch at all. In this case there will normally be a set of key strokes that you will have to hit to toggle the wireless ON and OFF.

Usually you will have to Press and Hold the FN function key then hit the Key that controls the wireless (F1 thru F12). The correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless will normally have the wireless icon )))).

HOW DO I TURN ON THE WIRELESS ON MY TOBISHA LAPTOP


If you're using a Toshiba laptop and you can't figure out how to enable WiFi you probably aren't alone. Thankfully there are several approaches you can take from a hardware and Windows Operating System stance to turn on your wireless connection while making sure you can properly connect to a wireless network.
Difficulty: Easy Instructions

      Look at the keyboard options on your laptop. You should see a button that looks like a small antenna. The button placement may vary from device to device. For instance, you may have a dedicated button or it may be placed much like the option circled in the picture to the left of this step.

      Click on the "Windows Start Button" and Navigate to "Control Panel" then click on "Network Connections" or "Network and Sharing" depending on your version of Windows.

    • 3

      Right-click on your wireless connection icon once the "Network Connections" window opens. Choose "Enable" and left-click on that option with your mouse. Wait for the wireless connection to enable.

      Alternatively you can try clicking on the " Windows Start Button" and then clicking on "Connect to," where you will click on "Show all connections." When the connection window opens up, you should right-click on "Wireless Network Connection" and then choose "Enable." Now right-click on "Wireless network connections" and then choose "View Available Wireless Networks" to see if your WiFi adapter is enabled.

Acer 4720,when switched on wifi button,the light for wifi is flash and the funcion is worked.But switched off wifi button,the light is still on.How can i switch off the light?


For Windows Based Computers

If the drivers for the wireless adapter contain a setting to toggle wireless radio, it can be located using the

following path: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Right click Wireless Network Connection Icon > Properties >

Configure > Advanced tab

Here you will find a textbox with a list of selectable properties that are populated by the device driver. Once you

select a property there will be a value field with a dropdown box containing configuration options that apply to that

specific property. The name of the wireless radio property may vary because the listed properties are dependent on

each specific device driver. It should be fairly intuitive to determine the correct property if you simply have the user

read all the listed properties to you.

Many laptop manufacturers will place a physical switch on the outside casing of the laptop, so that the user can

easily toggle wireless radio. Sometimes these switches get accidentally turned off, or intentionally turned off and the

end user forgets to switch it back. The best practice in these situations is to ask the user to look for a physical switch

on the case of the laptop, possibly with a symbol of a radio tower next to it. After turning the wireless switch on, the

user will probably need to refresh their network list.

Laptops built by certain manufacturers may have a specific keystroke set up to toggle wireless radio.

Below are some examples of wireless radio software and hardware toggles that we have been able to

document:

Acer (General) - FN,F5

ASUS (General) -The F5R has a toggle switch to turn on and off the WIFI; it is located on the left side of the

notebook

Dell (General) - FN,F2 or FN,F8 or FN,F12
Dell d630 (D6xx?) latitude: toggle switch on the left side towards the front by the PCMCIA slots and headphone

jack

E-machine (General) - FN,F2

Fujitsu (General) - FN,F10

HP/Compaq (General Older models) - Button on upper left on keyboard deck
HP/Compaq (General Newer models) - Button on lower left below keyboard

IBM thinkpad (General) - Most have software switch or button on left hand side.
IBM thinkpad (model not further identified) with wireless switch on front edge of case.

Sony Vaio (General) - switch on front left

Toshiba (General) - FN,F5 or FN,F8 or switch
Toshiba Satelite has a physycal switch on front of case. FN+F8 shows wether wireless communications is

enabled or disabled.

For MAC/Apple Based Computers

MAC OS X 10.4.x (Tiger & Earlier)
Open MAc Hard Drive > Applications > Utilities folder > Set the Configure pull-down to Airport.
Make sure the "Airport Power:" says On. (This is the status or your Mac's Airport card.)
If not, click "Turn Airport On" button.

MAC OS X 10.5.x (Leopard)
Click on the: Apple Icon > System Preferences > Network > Airport > Airport Power - On/Off

Where is the wireless button on t42 thinkpad


There's no hardware switch to activate and deactivate the wireless networking, but pressing Fn and F5 brings up a menu that allows you to turn Bluetooth on/off, WiFi on/off or both. It seems like IBM isn't satisfied with standard toggle buttons like other notebook manufacturers - even pressing the Fn and F7 buttons to switch between internal and external screens, brings up a menu with multiple display settings and resolutions.
Hope this helps,
David

Where is the wireless switch in the T22?


To my knowledge the T22 does not have an extra wireless switch, but I might be mistaken. Have a look here.

They all have function keys which enable and disable the radio (if a wireless adapter is pre-installed). Usually it is the blue "Fn" key and the F5 key.

Since the T22 does not have wireless "onboard", I assume that you are using an external adapter.
Right-click "My Computer", choose "Manage" and go to the "Device Manager".
If there is any trouble with your hardware or driver, you should see a yellow exclamation mark. If that is the case, try to reinstall the driver.
If you see a red "x", it means that the device is not enabled. Double-click that device and enable it at the bottom of the window.

If this did not get you any further, please come back here and tell me what you found. I'll be happy to see what else I can do.
