Acer emachines netbook wi-fi Fn + (twice of) F3

My friend turned on my wi-fi button for me in my netbook using FN + (twice of) F3 and it worked. But now that he's around I can't seem to quite make FN + (twice of) F3 work. FN + (once of) F3 is just for the bluetooth. Can you suggest techniques?

The best way to check if the computer can access to Internet is to boot the computer to "Safemode with Networking", to do so, restart the computer and as soon as it restarts keep on tapping F8 key, now select "Safemode with Networking" from the Advance boot menu. Try to connect to internet. If you are able to connect to Internet then the issue is with the firewall on you computer, contact the firewall manufacturer or settings. If you are still unable to connect to Internet, then the internet setting are not correct, you may need to contact the ISP.

Thanks and regards,

How do you turn the wireless internet on and off on Acer 3810

There must be a small slide switch nearby the Wi-Fi led, or a keystroke combination with Fn key and one of the F keys (it must have the apropriate wi-fi symbol)

Wi fi button

Look carefully on your "Function" keys example, F1, F2, F3 to F12 that are located above your keyboard. On each function keys, there is an icon. One of those is wi-fi. Find which function key has the wi-fi icon then find key to activate those functions. It is called "Fn" key (located in the bottom of your keyboard near "Ctrl" or "Alt"). Now press and hold "Fn" + "F#" then release. This should turn on your wi-fi. On mine, I have wi-fi on "F8" so I would press "Fn" + "F8".
