Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Were do you find the switch for the wireless on these laptops

Answers :

It all depends on the Make / Model. Some are physical (hardware) switches and some are software.
VAIO (General) - Switch on front left
VAIO (General, not further identified) - Button (or slide switch) on the Front Left or Right side
VAIO - VGW-AW125T - Button on Front Left, below keyboard
VAIO - VGN-AX570G - Button on Front Left
VAIO - VGN-B2560 - On top left of Keyboard (light say's wireless when on)
You can go into your bios setup and disable the wifi if there is no switch on the laptop.
