First try using the FUNCTION key combination "Fn" then F2

Next if this is not working then,go to my network places(To go to my network places:my computers left handside you wil get it) click it, then click on the option view network connections, then right handside click on wireless network connections, then right click and select properties, you wil get a window in that select wireless connection and check whether the first option is ticked or not.

Cheers

For Windows 7 Users.
Ive had this issue, try this.
Down near the clock is a ^ arrow. click that and find some thing that says "Click Here to turn on/off wireless devices and make connections"
Click ON
Yay it works... it took me hours to figure this out. very new to windows 7.

Wireless switch broken cannot use buton to turn on wireless capability is there another way to turn on wreles capability without using the button.i have windows 7 on a stone laptop model number mr052


There is usually only 1 way to turn on wireless especially if it is switch. Maybe you can use a small screw driver and turn it on but be gentle since its very fragile. Sorry for bad new. Good luck.

How to turn on the wireless capability by using a combination of function keys. Have re-installed the driver and turned the switch to on position but windows could not detect.


Make sure Windows is set to manage your wireless. Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Services
Make sure "Wireless Zero Configuration" is started, and is set to Automatically Start.
Good luck.

No wireless capability


If your model does not have wireless capability, even if you had a switch on the machine, if there is no internal wireless card you can't make this wireless. My suggestion would be to purchase a PCMCIA or USB wireless card that you can load to your system to make this wireless capable.

Can't turn on my wirless capability on HP Notebook


You didn't post the model number of your laptop but you may want to try FN+F2.

Usually the toggle switch for the wireless is on the front right hand side of the machine and has a light to tell you whether it's enabled.

How do i turn on the wireless capability?


Theres a slide on switch there somewhere on the side or front of your laptop. Once you turn that on you will see an a little computer icon on the lower task bar of your desktop screen near where the time is shown. That is telling you that your wireless radio is on ready to accept and connect to any unsecured wireless network.

You should have a quick reference sheet that came with your laptop (if new) which usually shows you which and where the features are at (USB, wireless switch, etc) .

If you have Vista just right click that little icon and select "Connect to a network" and if theres any wireless network in range choose whichever network (SSID) you want to connect to

Or in Vista click on Help and Support and on search bar type " wireless set up" and it will instruct you on how to proceed.

You can buy a wireless router for your home to connect directly to your existing ISP modem (if you have one)
