X120e - turn on the Wireless Radio.

2012-01-16, 4:24 AM

Given to me as a gift, no instruction book, etc.  It connected with my home wireless the first time I turned it on, 3 weeks later it won't connect.

 

I've tried various troubleshooters on the laptop, but none are helpful, and they can't find a problem.  No external switch, nothing that looks like "turn the radio on" in the Function keys.

 

What else should I try?

 

Thanks

Well, I've read all the manuals, used the laptops troubleshooters, gone to the centers, and still can't get this thing to connect.

 

The closest I've come is the Network and Sharing Center, where I'd try to "Connect to a network", but the link won't work.

 

Above this is a symbol, the word "Unknown", and a description, "The dependency service or group failed to start".

 

What does this mean?  Where do I go?  I've toggled the FN F5 button repeatedly, no response.

Hi roccaas and welcome to the community,

 

Download and install System Update.  It will find updates for your machine.  You need the Hotkeys utility for Fn+F5 to work.   It will probably find a wireless driver for your wireless.  

 

You don't have to install every utility it comes up with, but it sounds like you need the Hotkeys to turn on the wireless and possibly a driver.
