Turning wifi on...?

There's no switch on my laptop and Fn + F2 doesn't work either. I'm not sure what else to do or where the problem is ._.

Check device manager to see if device is showing and enabled/disabled??
Control Panel>Network & sharing centre>Manage wireless networks??

Look for the wireless adapter.

You could try downloading the driver from Asus....
