    Wireless capability turned off ?

    I have and Asus N50Vseries.
    My kids have been playing with my computer and I cannot connect to the internet.
    If I go into Windows Network Diagnostics it says to turn on wireless capability.
    It says via a switch at the side or front or a function key combination.
    I cannot find were this is.
    I think it is a function key.
    F2 has a blue signal looking icon on it, but if I press FN + F2 it
    does not seem to do anything.

    Please Help Anyone?

    Thanks, Becs

    There is often a switch on the side, bottom, or front of the laptop that turns the card on or off.

    Also go into Device Manager, find your card, and make sure it is enabled from the right-click menu.
