i have my computer hooked up through my cord from my wireless box but i cant get the computer to recognize any wireless networks around including mine. how do i turn on the wireless stuff. i see the light that will come on when it IS on but i cant find how to turn it on
thank you very much for mentioning that you have to press 'fn' and 'f11' at the same time. At first i thought this wouldn't work as i have been trying to get a network connection for nearly 2 weeks. my netbook told me to get an ethernet cable, which i was told i didnt need by a friend, so i was very confused on what to do to solve the problem. But as soon as i pressed those 2 buttons i instantly got a connection on my msi netbook.
While it's true that you don't need the ethernet cable to connect , it is another way to connect if your having trouble with the wireless adapter.It allows you to connect to make sure that you can connect at all and can be used as a test.
Good to see that your problem was solved.
