Advent 9517. New router installed,necessary to link to laptop by cable. Unplug, and Windows says "wireless capability switched off.Turn on by switch on front or side of computer, or function key combination"
I can't find switch - can you help me with function key combination, please?

Best wishes Bruce

From a quick google images search I can't see an obvious wireless key on your keyboard, but try pushing down Fn and pressing each of the F keys (top row) that aren't marked to see if one of them enables the adapter. Fn + F2 rings a bell but that might be wrong.

Not a Fn key. There is a Wireless Lan on/off switch on front of laptop (next to headphone socket) according to click here (also gives a list of the Fn key combos for other functions)
