Need help with which Fkey to push on the Elitebook in order to turn on my wireless network capability. I was told it was the F5 key but having no luck.


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!

How do you turn the wireless switch on?


Check your connection settings and check on wireless connection. Restart your computer go to BIOS settings and enable wireless connection now save settings and take reboot again.
Give an IP or connect your modem go through internet connectivity.

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
