R61i Enable Radio

How do is the radio enabled on the R61i?


I have a remote employee trying to turn on the radio - but I don't know if it is a physical switch, or a software setting.

Re: R61i Enable Radio

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Actually there are two ways, software key combination and hardware switch to turn on the wifi.

For software, you need to press Fn+F5 on the keyboard -> Enable radio on. The hardware switch is on the front, have a look at the following document, choose bottom view, that would help you in spotting it:-

Hope this helps.
