Turn your computer completely off. Turn it back on - and your wifi will reset itself. Even though it is completely on, sometimes you cannot turn the switch on, since it has locked itself off the network.

If i disabled wifi how to i enable in a dell laptop?


The same way you disabled it, there should be an icon on your taskbar for enabled and disabled the WLAN switch. If there isnt you need to go to control panel and go to networks, enable wirless router, search for networks etc. If that does work then you have to go into control panel, change wireless settings or change internet settings and find it that way.

Not able to connect wifi in my lapopo


In connecting through a wifi, there are two factors to consider. (1) Wireless Router broadcast and (2) Wireless Receiver.

Make sure that your network router is broadcasting wireless internet or wifi. Also, you have to know if you need a pass key or password in order to connect to the wireless network.

Now, given that there is a wifi spot, your laptop should automatically recognize the wifi broadcast and negotiate connection without your intervention. This will only happen IF AND ONLY IF your laptop has a wifi radio receiver and that it is TURNED ON. When it is turned ON, it will connect you immediately if the network has no pass key set. If there is, then you have to enter that key when you try to manually connect it. (Right click on wireless network icon on system tray. Then it should say: Wireless Network Available. Then Click CONNECT)

To turn your wifi radio receiver ON, slide a switch button to ON position depending on your laptop model. If you dont have that kind of switch, look for the wifi icon printed in the keyboard keys. In some laptop, it is in F2. Now Press FN+F2 to turn wifi radio receiever ON and OFF.

How do I turn off WIFI on Acer 5720 and use ethernet cord


If there isnt a button on the laptop to switch it on and off, then the easiest way to turn it off is to disable the wireless network adapter.
To do this, open Control Panel and double click Network Connections.
This will then show your wireless and ethernet adapters as icons.
Right click on the wireless adapter and then select "disable".
Your wireless adapter should now show as disabled.
If in the future you want to turn it back on, do the same again but select "enable".
