Can not connect to wifi due to wireless switch

\015 I can not find a wireless switch, it says there might also be a key combo to toggle it on and off. when i try to connect it says wifi switch off, turn on, i cant find switch /key combo to turn it back on. it says theres either a button on comp (what i dont see) or a key combo that i dont know. help would be greatly appreciated. thanks\015

Answers :

I assume you have a laptop or notebook. If you look closely at your keyboard, you'll notice a couple of keys next to the spacebar, usually on both sides, that have something like "Func" printed in blue or another color.
\015\012Now, if you look at the rest of the keys on your notebook, you will see that some have two
\015\012functions: the desired character key, and another, in the same color as that special
\015\012function key.
\015\012If you now look at the topmost row of keys, or the 'function" PF keys, it's likely that
\015\012they too have a second function, depicted by a small icon in the same color. The icon
\015\012you're looking for should look like a radiating antenna, and it may have on it (or elsewhere in the notebook) a small (usually blue) LED that comes on that comes on when WiFi is turned on.
\015\012The combo key action you refer to means that you should press the special function key next
\015\012to the spacebar first, and then the key that has the icon, to toggle WiFi on or off.
\015\012In other cases, there's a recessed button along the edge, either on a corner, or on the sides of the notebook, with a similar icon depicting an antenna of some sort, and it usually has an LED that comes on to indicate WiFi is active.
\015\012If all fails, your user's manual is the best source of information to find the key/key combination you need, since not all notebooks/laptops have these keys/buttons in the same place.
\015\012Good luck!
