Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

How do I turn on my wireless capability on my Dell laptop? It was working with my home secured network. I took it to Calif and ended up buying a wireless card. It worked fine there. It was working fine when I got back. I left the state again with it and now I cannot get it to hook up to my home or my wireless. It tells me that I need to turn on the wireless capability and I have no clue where that is


Answers :

Press the function key (the blue one) and the F2 key at the same time. You should see a small picture of an antenna on the F2 key.
