Windows 7: wifi key

16 Jan 2012   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Does your wireless adaptor show in device manager?

You could try the Windows Mobility Center. Open Control Panel, click Mobile PC, and then click Windows Mobility Center or I believe Windows Key + X will also open it.
From Microsoft
If the Turn Wireless On button on the Wireless Network tile is unavailable, you may need to use the hardware switch on your computer to turn on the wireless adapter. For more information about turning the wireless adapter on and off, see your computer manufacturer's documentation.

When you say you havn't done any installation are you saying that Windows is not installed?

If Windows is installed does your wireless adaptor show in device manager?

What is the exact model of your laptop?

Windows 10 Education 64 bit

You may have to replace the keyboard if that button is part of it. That or try to fix the button. Is the button actually broken or is it just that the on indicator never lights up when you press the button? Does the button depress when you press it? When did it stop working and why? System specs such as the specific make and model of the PC would be nice.

Check Sony eSupport - Electronics - Select Your Model for something like "Wireless Switch Setting Utility" if not already installed, it may work.
