For this laptop, the wireless on/off button is located above the keyboard and it's on the left hand side. It is on the left side of the touch pad on/off button. It is close on the HP logo below the screen.

My Nextbook 10.1 wont show the wifi ON/OFF switch, so I cant connect to the wifi


Do you mean a physical/hard, on-the-tablet WiFi ON/OFF switch, similar to the POWER ON/OFF switch ? I don't think any tablet or smartphone has that. You turn on/off WiFi with a "soft" switch from Settings-->Network (or WiFi). Hope this helps.

How do i backup my hp8440p elitebook with cd-r


Hi

There should be a program on the laptop that will create a set of backup CD-s for you with a restore disk for the OS and any other installed programs and one for the drivers, you can also buy them from HP if your laptop goes faulty before you can back them up

I think there is a sliding button to switch on wifi on my Lenovo 3000 N100 but it doesn't seem to be working.


Hi supriyamahta,

That's right, there's a physical wifi switch for your Lenovo 3000 N100. It's located on the front panel of your machine. It should be toggled on the right side if you wanted to turn it on. If it's not working you might need to turn on it's wifi soft switch. All you have to do is to press the Fn + F5 button. In any case and still you will be encountering the same issue that wifi switch can't be turned on I will ask you to contact Lenovo so they can give you proper recommendation on how the wifi switch can be replaced.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Wifi switch is turned on however, when i try to search for a wireless network i get a message saying that i need to turn on my wireless switch


So I understand that your wifi card doesn't work?If that is correct go to Toshiba site and check their support-from the other computer-of course.If card is dead, you will need usb wifi.

How to turn on WIFI?


Look at the sides of your laptop. Look for a sliding switch with a wifi wave icon. Manually slide it to turn the wifi radio ON or OFF.

If you don't have that mechanical switch, look at your laptop's Function Keys (F1 to F12). Look for a function key with a wifi wave icon printed in a different color. Example, if F10 has that wifi wave icon, hold down the FN Key and press F10 to turn your wifi ON and OFF.

How do I turn the radio on the wireless card


When your computer is switched on, the WiFi radio is almost always transmitting or receiving signals. In certain situations, as in an airplane, signals from the radio may cause interference. Use the following methods if you need to disable the radio and use your notebook without emitting radio signals.
Use the Optional Computer Radio On or Off Switch

If your computer has an external switch installed, use it to switch the WiFi radio on or off. See the computer manufacturer for more information about this switch. If you have Intel® PROSet/Wireless installed, the current state of the radio displays in the Intel PROSet/Wireless main window and on the Taskbar.


Use Intel PROSet/Wireless to Switch the WiFi Radio On or Off

From Intel PROSet/Wireless, the WiFi radio can be switched on or off. The status icon on Intel PROSet/Wireless displays the current state of the radio.

To start Intel® PROSet/Wireless, use one of the following methods:
  • Click Start > Programs > Intel PROSet Wireless > WiFi Connection Utility.
  • Right-click the Taskbar icon prosettaskbaricon1.jpg located in the lower right corner of your Windows* Desktop to open the Taskbar menu. Click Configure WiFi.
  • Double-click the Taskbar icon to open Intel PROSet/Wireless.
Switch the WiFi Radio On or Off from the Taskbar Icon

To switch the WiFi radio on or off, click the Taskbar icon image1_ipswtaskbaricon.jpg and select WiFi On or WiFi Off.

How to use the Device Manager to Disable the WiFi Radio

The WiFi radio can be disabled (made non-functional) from the Windows* Device Manager.

Note: If you disabled the WiFi radio from Windows*, then you must use Windows to turn the radio on. You cannot use a hardware switch or Intel PROSet/Wireless to enable the radio again.

Windows* XP
  1. From your desktop, right-click My Computer.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Click Hardware.
  4. Click Device Manager.
  5. Double-click Network adapters and expand the selection by clicking the Plus symbol.
  6. Right-click the installed WiFi adapter.
  7. Choose Disable from the menu.
  8. Click OK.
Windows Vista*
  1. Use Control Panel > Mobile PC > Adjust commonly used mobility settings (if you use Classic View, select Control Panel > Power Options.
  2. Click Turn Wireless Off .
Hope this helps !
