Q: Why won’t my netbook pick up a signal to access un-secured wireless?

    If the laptop isn’t detecting ANY wireless signals than the wireless antenna is probably turned off. There should be a button or switch on the laptop that turns this on and off. Your netbook’s user guide will have more details. It will be available on the manufactures website if you’ve lost it.

      Thank you. I thought of that but found it not to be the problem. Any other thoughts?

    Can you provide more detail?

    – Can you see any wireless networks?
    – do other wireless devices work?
    – Has it ever worked?
