How to turn on your wifi


If you are operating on a laptop, you may have a function key that enables/disables wireless connection. If not, go to your control panel > network and sharing center, and on the left side there should be a link that says "Manage wireless networks". You should find everything you need there.

Cindy, you may have inadvertently turned off the wireless receiver on the side of the laptop. look for a switch it will be a slide switch on the side or even a push button on the top and make sure you have it on.

First, check if the wireless switch on the computer is ON.
Second, you should see a blue light on thwireless indicator.

I have a Toshiba lap top A 105. I have lost my internet


It is possible to disable the wireless connection with the keyboard. Try the combination of Fn and F8 buttons (this is a common Toshiba shortcut) to turn it back on. If that doesn't work, look at your Network Connections (through the Control Panel, assuming a Windows OS, if needed). Check the settings and if it is enabled. In the device manager, check if the wireless adapter has an exclamation point in a yellow triangle. If you have the exclamation point try letting Windows repair the driver. (You may need to access the Toshiba website for the correct driver. Either use a different machine and put the driver on a disc or USB driver or your machine's wired connection.) If that tells you it has no problems, remove the wireless connection (and uninstall the driver) and reboot the computer and it should see new hardware and start reinstalling the driver. Then you can try to establish a new wireless connection.

If the above solutions do not help, it's likely to be a hardware failure. You could get a new wireless adapter (USB or an appropriate card for your laptop add-on card slot), use the wired network (if that has worked), or consider a new machine.

Where is the switch or function key combination to turn on wireless connection?


It's difficult to tell, but there seems to be a small switch on the front, that may activate the wireless connection. If that isn't it, you can usually access the modems through control panel, under 'network and internet,' and the wireless assistant, or possibly the network and sharing center; if the wireless modem is disabled, right clicking on the icon will usually give you an option to activate it, or you can connect to a network through the network and sharing center, as well as detecting networks, and that will tell you whether or not the thing is working.

NO wireless device


Go an Acer site and download the NIC dirvers and make sure the wireless switch is moved to the on spot. The wireless switch should be on the side or back, marked on & off and a pic of a satlite or dish.
