how do i enable wireless function on a samsung v20 laptop

Generally there is one of the following:

(1) A switch on the front of the laptop


(2) A Fn + F# XXXXX (example: Fn + F4)... look for an icon on your keyboard that looks like a small tower giving off radio waves.

hi switch on front of laptop.f4 is standby.
I didn't say it would be F4, just an example. What's the full model number of the laptop? there should be more after V20
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
nope, just says samsung v20

just found a pic on internet of the v20 xvc 2400
Ok if you do not see a button on the front and no key on the keyboard has the radio symbol then check something else.

Right click on My Computer and go to Properties

Go to Device Manager and tell me whats listed under Network Adapters

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
nothing listed as network display adaptors,pcmcia adaptors
Weird. Any devices with yellow exclamation marks next to them?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
yeah,ethernet controller,pci modem,sm bus controller,universal seial bus

Then that's the problem. You don't have any of the drivers installed for your devices. Did you do a reinstall recently?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
dont think do i get the drivers for all the devices
Can you ensure that your model is in fact V20? Check the bottom of the laptop. What country was it purchased in?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
definately samsung v20 purchased in the united kingdom,made in korea

Ok download the Wireless driver, Chipset driver, and USB2 drivers from here and install them.
