    Cannot connect Wifi (Button won't change)


    Good day all,

    My son disconnected the wifi on his laptop. I know it is in Parameters - Réseau et internet (network - internet) - Wifi but the button to activate won't move. Don't know what to do.

    Thank you

    Do you have some other programme controlling WiFi that might have been installed by laptop manufacturer? Check in the system tray for any wifi software and activate it from there.

    Have you tried switching on from flight mode?

    Also check the Wi-Fi adapter is enabled, go via Network Settings.

    Have you also checked that the wireless switch on the laptop is ON? Many laptops have a slider switch that controls whether wireless is ON and your son may have turned it off.

    Yep, that was it. Tje switch is on the side of the lap top. Did not know that existed. My son did - ''It's on mom! - Mom: No - IT'S OFF!''

    Thank you so much everyone for helping me! I'll pay it forward HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
