Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

HOW DO I ENABLE WIRELESS?

\015 My last laptop had a switch on it to turn on the wireless, easy peasy, but I can't see one anywhere on this laptop. Whilst looking through the settings and programs on my laptop it did show me that it does contain a wireless device so i don't understand. Why the difficulty?Help!\015

Answers :

Have a look for a switch around the side's of the laptop, if there is not one there you may have to use the keyboard to activate it, look at the "F" keys at the top of the keyboard for a symbol that loos like a broadcasting aerial/ antenna, if you find this key hold down the "Fn" key and Press the key you found, that should activate the wireless, just give it a minute or so to pick up networks
