What switches on the wireless card on X72

\015 I dont know how to switch on the wireless card on X72 I am supposed to use a function key I believe. I have wireless in my home but I have to use a Dongle for my laptop even though it does have a wireless card installed. I have searched reviews and they say there is usually a switch at the front or side of it I cant see it.\015\012Many thanks\015

Answers :

First check to see if it is disabled in the Device Manager i.e.> a red X or yellow !

Press Windows key + <R>



press return then look at then goto network adapters it will be open if its disabled, right click then enable it.

If this is OK then it will be a key toggle on you laptop some also have a light that flashes some don't like a NIC on a desktop.

Look for a blue on satellite icon on one of the function keys press it with CTRL or there will be a round button on the front, back or side.

Hope this helps please rate me !!
