Wireless problem? Don’t forget to flip the switch.

Your wireless issue may be an easier fix than you think.  Many wireless issue pertain to spyware, viruses, or pop-ups preventing Internet access.  Or perhaps your wireless router is not functioning.   What about your Internet provider not being active in your area?   OK, these fixes are not so easy and will probaby require a computer service technician or a long time on the phone with TimeWarner or Verizon.

But, what if your wireless fix was right under your nose…literally?  There is a keyboard combination, such as Fn and F2 that will enable your wireless connection.  Sometimes, it is not easy, but possible where these keys are pressed by mistake which will turn off your wireless connection.  The combination to press is to first hold the Fn key at the bottom-left of your keyboard and then press one of the F keys at the top of your keyboard that has the wireless signal button on it.  This will also enable your wireless signal.  Other than these keys, you can also make sure that your wireless on/off switch is switched on.  That little button could have easily been turned off as well by mistake.  These two wireless switches could be a big nuisance if you don’t know where to look.
