Having problems with your Intel S6240 Notebook ?

The wireless has been switched off in the computer and I don;t know how to turn it back on. Can you help?


Answers :

The other answers may or may not fix your problem. My wife has a Fujitsu Lifebook S6231 and there is one more place you'll need to check if going through the software fixes do not work. Check to make sure your wireless card is physically turned on. My wife's computer has a switch on the back that shuts power to the wireless card off. Turn it back on and likely that will resolve the issue.
In windows XP, on the lower right down by the clock there should be an icon with a little tv with three marks to the left of it. Right click on it and hit repair.
\015\012That should do it.
