PostSubject: Wireless Capability on Acer laptop   Wireless Capability on Acer laptop Icon_minitimeSat Dec 05, 2009 11:02 am

About 1 and a half hours ago my laptop's wireless capabilty decided to turn itself off. I went to Diagnose why Windows can't make a connection on my internet icon near the time on my laptop and then it's says wireless capability on this computer is turned off and explains that you can use a switch that is on the front or side of the laptop or a function key to turn it on, but I don't know what the F*** I am meant to be turning on on, cause I don't know where the switch is, because it just suddenly turned itself off.

Usually when it happens I restart the computer and then it is fine again, but I have restarted my computer a couple of times and still the same thing is happening, anyone got any ideas how to fix this???

Just at the front on the laptop, underneath the mouse touchpad there should be a switch that slides across
It has obviously flicked to off, just flick it over to on adn you will be fine
