Where is the wireless switch?

I am looking for the wireless switch, but don't see it on the left side or front or anywhere else on it. I've also tried the Fn + F5 combo, but nothing happens. Is there something else I should try? It was working yesterday, so not sure why suddenly I need to switch wireless ''on''. It's an IBM Thinkpad iSeries 1300.

Turning on wireless


Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look onboth sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can togglethe wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN functionkey located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit willhave the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a towerwith the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will displayWireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.
On some laptops there will be a button just above the keyboard or on the side or in front of the laptop..

Some laptops don't have wireless buttons. You toggle it by the keystrokes described above. If there is a wireless button it will be located above the keyboard, on the sides or in front of the laptop.
According to your manual, the wireless switch is on the side of the laptop. See page 15 of the manual. I have provided a link below for the manual.

Wireless is disabled on dell vostro 1540


Look on both sides of the laptop for the switch or button. Look in the front of the laptop too. I've seen the wireless switch at the bottom of the lcd screen on either the left or right side on some dell models (you just press it).

Normally the keystrokes to get the wireless going requires you to Press and Hold the FN Function key then hit the key that toggles the wireless (F1 thru F12). The correct F1 thru F12 key might have the wireless icon )))) on it.
