The function keys are defined by application so they will do different things depending on what's running.

Where is the on off button for wireless


Use the "function" ('FN') keyboard on the motherboard: hold it down, and press one of the 'F1' through 'F12' keys.

Or, look on the case for a slider-switch (on/off).

Look for a lamp (BLUE when wireless is enabled, ORANGE when wireless is disabled).

How do i switch on wireless capability using my keyboard function keys i have a fujitsu siemens


On the top row of keys of your keyboard (usually the F1 - F12 keys) there should be a key that contains either a wireless signal (an antenna with "signal waves" coming out of it) or a button that says 'Wifi' on it. Regardless to enable it this way in most cases you must have the Function key held in before you press the wireless button. The function key is a key on the bottom of your keyboard that says: 'Fn'

Thanks and please rate if this helps you!

Function keys don't work as assignment on each key


Please mention whether you are using Notebook or a Desktop Computer. If it is Notebook please let me know the make of the Notebook as there will be a driver for the Function Keys to work. If it is desktop computer try using another keyboard to confirm if the issue is related to hardware of the Keyboard. For both the Wireless Keyboard of the Desktop and Notebook Keyboard it is required to press the Fn Key and the Function Keys (F1 to F12) together in order work.

During gameplay i am requested to use a number from f1 - f12 and the f1 through f12 are occupied by keys that change the laptop settings. how do i move the settings or get rid of them?



Function keys(F1-F12) are hard coded and cannot be changed.
Some keys simply just never get to Windows. In the case of most Fn keys, they are interpretted by the hardware and never get passed onto the OS, no matter how they appear to work... if Windows doesn't see the key, there's no way for the key to be remapped by Windows.

If your gameplay is asking for a Function key -, it must be written in the software.
You may need to call the software vendor.



If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

I have a dell inspiron 1564. To use the f1-f12 functions require me to first hit the FN button. How do I reverse this so that i can use f1-f12 by hitting them directly and have the current commands...


You can change it so you don't have to use the FN key by going into the settings while you computer is booting.

Reboot your computer
Keep hitting F2 until a greay and blue settings screen comes up
Choose the Advanced menu
Use your arrow keys to go down and select 'Function Key Behavior'
Hit enter
Select 'Function Key First'
Hit enter
Choose to Save and Exit (usually F10)

Should fix it up.

Function keys F1 thru F12 don't work


Keyboard might have gone bad. Try hooking up a external keyboard and see if they work. If they don't then you have a motherboard issue. If they do then it is a keyboard issue. If you lucky it is just a keyboard then you can get one here for 20 bucks.

F keys suddenly not working


The "F mode" button toggles on and off the F keys. If you press it (accidentally) as I did, the keys will no longer function.

Simply press the "F mode" key again (it is directly above the "End->" key between F12 and Insert on this model keyboard) and functionality will be restored.
