Hi,

It must had been hard unable to connect wirelessly with your device. It's ok, F5 is part of it. But just for me to make sure i'm leading you to the resolution kindly follow the instructions below.

  1. Check the wireless switch. Make sure it is switched to the icon of a computer with signal on both sides.
  2. Press FN (usually on the left side of the space bar on the keyboard).
  3. While holding FN down, Press F5.
  4. You should see a notification on the lower right hand side of the screen that wireless is enabled.
Check your wireless capability. Thank you for choosing FixYa!

I can t to conect my lenovo s103 wi fi


Hi elyflorin200,
I see that you have the s10-3 Netbook and that you wants to connect using Wifi.
  • On your Netbook make sure that the wireless switch on the side is switched on first.
  • On the lower right hand side you should see a wireless icon that looks like a signal bar indicating that your wireless is on and that it detects Networks in the area.
  • Point your mouse cursor on the signal bar on the lower right it should say Networks are detected or connect to a network.
  • If you do not see the signal bars then the wireless may still be OFF on your Netbook.
  • Try and Press FN+F5 the same time you should see a windows that will pop up saying Networks or it should say Wireless device or the name of your of your wireless card, check if the wireless is enable or turned on under current status.
  • If your S10-3 detects Networks click on you Routers name to be able to connect wireless it will prompt you for a security if in case your Router has a Network key or Security key you will need to type that in in order to get internet from he Router if ever you enter the incorrect Network/Security key i will give you an error.
  • If ever you get connected it will prompt you if you want to save the Network and if you want to connect Automatically put a check on Connect automatically so that every time you turn you S10-3 ON it will detect the wireless signal in your home.
For further information regarding you s10-3 you can to this link below http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/UserGuide/Guide_list.aspx?CategoryID=686287
I hope that this will be helpful regarding you question.
Have a nice day.
