Hi,

 

Right click on the right bottom of the laptop where it shows the wireless network and choose find/scan network > Let me know, what happens?

I got sent to a troubleshooting page and it says the problem found is wireless capability is turned off
Network Technician: Ansh P., Network Administrator replied 8 years ago

There must be a small switch in your laptop to turn on the wireless, try to find it and enable it. Let me know, what happens.

I cannot find a switch anywhere on this thing. The only botton seems to be the on-off switch.

What is the make and model of the laptop?
