Trying to turn on the wireless switch on a dell latitude c640 how do i do it

Answers :

Hello there:
Some laptops have a switch in front next to the wireless light or on the side.

Some laptops use an F key so to turn on the wireless I would have to turn the switch on in\015\012front and then "toggle" the Wireless on by pressing the FN and the F8\015\012keys.
There is supposed to be a small switch on the front or side that slides from off\015\012to on and when switched on an LED light will\015\012come on.I hope this helps and good luck!

Wireless Switch My laptop is a Presario2100 (not a 2100T). I have had it for just over three years. Naturally, 2 months after the warranty ran out, something stopped working on my computer. My wireless switch will not turn on. It probably isn't a card problem, because it will not even turn on enough to tell me whether or not it senses wireless networks.
