The launch of Wi-Fi hot keys
None of the owners are not protected, for example, from a situation where on the keyboard you can spill water. In this regard, the keyboard can stop working or specific buttons can not work as it should. At the same time on the laptops many actions can be performed solely with the hotkey combination, including the connection to the network via Wi-Fi. On the keyboard use the Fn button and button with a picture of the antenna. If, for example, the Fn button does not work, then start a Wi-Fi network is many times more complicated.
It is worth mentioning that the Fn button works under the control of the BIOS - basic software where you can change most of the settings of the computer. It is worth noting that even modern laptops do not offer any special software to run Wi-Fi, that is, to somehow fix the urgent problem, even in the BIOS will not work. Fortunately, there are several ways out of this situation, for example, the use of additional software.
Is it possible to turn on Wi-Fi without a hotkey?
You can use KeyRemapper and use it to reassign keys. For example, if the Fn button is not working, it has to be reassign to another and then enable Wi-Fi. In addition, with the help of this program you can reverse remapping of keys and buttons, that is, swap them, etc. If the laptop is not working one of the buttons to enable Wi-Fi network, then this method is the best and simplest way out of the situation.
There is another option - buy another keyboard, which is composed of the function key. Of course, in this case, you will have to spend on a keyboard, but it's better to buy it than a new laptop. The same solution can be attributed to the treatment in a special service center, where the keyboard will be replaced, but also additional costs.
In addition, function keys can just be disabled in the BIOS E. Respectively for the immediate problem you need to go back, edit, and save the settings.
Unfortunately, today there are no other ways to launch Wi-Fi on laptops without using hot keys, so as mentioned above, the best way out of this situation - the key remapping, but if the keyboard is not working at all, you will have to buy a new one or replace your old one.
