I cant not get a sinal on my wireless.it tell me to turn on wireless capability,it can be done by using a switch that is found on the front side of the computer,i I dont se that or it tel me to use a function key,i dont know what keys to used.
First try using
the FUNCTION key combination "Fn" then F2
Next if this is not working then,go to my network places(To go to my network places:my computers left handside you wil get it) click it, then click on the option view network connections, then right handside click on wireless network connections, then right click and select properties, you wil get a window in that select wireless connection and check whether the first option is ticked or not.

If your model does not have wireless capability, even if you had a switch on the machine, if there is no internal wireless card you can't make this wireless. My suggestion would be to purchase a PCMCIA or USB wireless card that you can load to your system to make this wireless capable.
Theres a slide on switch there somewhere on the side or front of your laptop. Once you turn that on you will see an a little computer icon on the lower task bar of your desktop screen near where the time is shown. That is telling you that your wireless radio is on ready to accept and connect to any unsecured wireless network.
You should have a quick reference sheet that came with your laptop (if new) which usually shows you which and where the features are at (USB, wireless switch, etc) .
If you have Vista just right click that little icon and select "Connect to a network" and if theres any wireless network in range choose whichever network (SSID) you want to connect to
Or in Vista click on Help and Support and on search bar type " wireless set up" and it will instruct you on how to proceed.
You can buy a wireless router for your home to connect directly to your existing ISP modem (if you have one)
