    how do i turn on wireless capability

    just bought a new laptop that has windows vista basic. i have a wireless
    router. it picks the fact up that i have one but will not let me connect.
    when i rn diagnosis on it, it said that my 'wireless capability' was switched
    off, and that cld turn it on via a switch on the computer - cannot find a
    physical switch ANYWHERE - or by a 'combination of keys'. can anyone tell me
    how i can turn on wireless capability? I don't have a wireless card either -
    just the router and a couple of cables. incase you couldn't tell already, i'm
    not that great with computers.

    many thanks.

    i'll ask the obvious question--have you looked at the documentation that
    came with your laptop? i have 1 laptop that has a slide switch on the
    front that is nearly invisible. another laptop (the wife's) turns the
    wireless on/off from a function key. check your documentation. or call
    the manufacturer's hotline.
