I cannot locate an external switch. I have a wireless switch which is on - doesn't say anything about radio.
I have found a page which is called Intel(R) PROSet/Wireless Help.
That seems to suggest I just need to click on the taskbar icon (if the icon is white and static) and click WiFi On. However, when I do that nothing happens.
It says Not Connected - but I am connected directly to my BT HomeHub.
When I right click it comes up with a series of options. But in bold it states "View Available Wireless Networks". When I right click on that it states "Windows cannot configure this wife connection. If you have enabled another program to manage this wireless connection, use that software.
I'm computer useless and I don't understand.
It says "This connection uses the following items:
Client for Microsoft Networks
File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks
QoS Packet Scheduler
Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)"
Which one is the software you are referring to?
Also above it, it says "Connect using: Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 5100". Then an option to configure.
Give me a second here. I'll see what I can find out.
No, the internet is not prompting me for a password.
In the past, I cannot get into Cisco unless I can get into the internet. I don't understand why I cannot get into the internet now because I am connected to the HomeHub.
That is quite interesting. At least we have gotten the initial question taken care of. I will try to help you with this other as much as possible, but don't know how far I will be able to go with it since it isn't pertaining to the initial question of hot to get the wireless radio switch turned on.
