A mate is trying to connect his mums lappie to his wireless network, but he needs to turn on the wireless connection switch.

I'm trying to help him over the phone but between us we can't find it.
Any ideas ?

If its disabled, there may just be a hotkey, something like Fn+F8 or similar to turn on wireless. And make sure wireless card isn't disabled in network connections

Wireless switch should be on right hand side or front of laptop. Or it may not have it

What model?

Hi Limepile

But wait there's more ...

Thought this might help yah Mate too.

Goto PROGRAMS>TOSHIBA>NETWORKING>CONFIGFREE>DEVICE SETTINGS>AUTOMATIC NETWORK SWITCH. Turn ON.

This network switch turns on the correct network at the correct time. If a network cable is attached this selects a LAN. Disconnect the cable and yah Mate's wireless network will be selected. This gives his Mum greater freedom without the hassle.

Might be handy, might not. Worth a mention!!
