Hi pashew,

 

Sorry to hear about your wireless problem. I will be happy to assist you. What version of operating system are you running? Below is a link on how to find that if you need it.

Re: wireless capability is turned off on windows 8

Hi pashew,

 

What troubleshooting tool did you use? The build in one that comes with Windows? So the wifi is turned on but it won't connect. Are you getting any error messages when trying to connect? Can you see your wireless network? Is it just your wireless network that you are having problems connecting to or all networks?

 

Thank you,

Re: wireless capability is turned off on windows 8

Hi there, it seems like everywhere I've searched for help is the same story.
Did you finally get help with your WiFi?
The responses I get are the obvious ones that do not solve the problem, the WiFi switch itself is not accessible, it has the fades colour that shows that you can't click it.
