SOURCE: How do u turn on and use wifi on Inspiron B130?

There should be a wireless icon next to the time (lower right hand corner of your screen) that you can right-click on and Turn radio on. Hit the function(blue button lower left) and F2 if there is a tower on F2, it may be a differant F number on the top. If that doesnt work, right click my computer and click manage. Then Device monitor, and then click the + next to network adaptors and make sure the wireless symbol doesnt have a symbol on it besides the green chip. If its red its disabled, right click enable. If its yellow you need a driver for it, find it on and install the driver.

No wifi connection

Often there is a switch or Fn key that turns on/off the wireless card. You may have accidentally turned off your wifi card. On my net book Fn F2 is my on/off switch for wireless. Yours may be different. It will look like a tower with parantheses radiating from the top like a radio tower. Try turning it back on.

How do you turn on wifi for dell latitude d610

There is not wireless switch on this model. To turn on your wireless you will need to hold down FN + F2. If this does not turn on your wireless its most probably disabled in the Bios. To enable it, press the F2 key at the Dell Logo on startup, move down to wireless, press enter and move to wireless control, make sure its set to Fn+F2/App, then move down to wireless devices and make sure it set to on. Press Esc, and save changes and exit.

Seems like your Bluetooth and Wifi settings are disabled from BIOS.
On laptops usually there is a setting in BIOS where you can disable/Enable Wifi+Bluetooth. Shutdown computer Turn on computer and press "F2" to go to BIOS settings Find settings for Wifi+Bluetooth and set it to default.
Save settings and restart computer You will be able to see your Bluetooth and Wifi.
Hope this works

I have just bought a Packard Bell Dot S2 netbook. I have no idea what the fn key does or the other F keys. How do I disable the wifi? Also how does the ''multi gesture'' keypad work? The installed manual...

its a short cut used to brighten the screen, or turn the volume up / down instead of using the mouse.

its in a different colour so, that any other key you see that has in that colour will do that task when you hold down the FN key and press the other.

so that why there a FN on there .. to turn off wifi press FN and F1 or F2 on there. and it should work
