Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Have you checked to see that the Wireless is turned on?

Hi,

Thank you for your quick response.

I have tried the F3 button on my keyboard. When i push it it previously used to show a red light. Now it does not.

Regards,

Jeff

Does the Wireless Network Adapter show to be enabled within Device Manager?

Network Adapters:

- Broadband Netlink (TM)
- Remote NDIS

The above is working properly

Can you post a screenshot of device manager?
(If need be, please expand the branch for the Network adapaters.

Use the info in this tutorial:
Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

If a network adapter is disabled, It should cause the device manager to expand the branch and there should be a little down arrow on the icon for the entry for that adapter. Another way to tell if an adapter has been disabled if to open the Network and Sharing Center. Locate and click on the link in the upper left corner named Change adapter settings. Disabled adapters should have the word disabled by them,

Is it Fnkey+F3? Do other special FN keys work? For example Fn+F8 if that has a function as well
