  Thanks Larry, and George, Marie and all who helped me to get on line with my 
netbook.  Another problem please.  I am trying to download AVG free but it is 
asking me for money, is it not free  any more?  Or should I try another one?  I 
am using AVAST on another computer.  It also looks as though Jaws 10 is not 
suitable for netbooks, is that right?

  All help gratefully received.

  Cheers

  Ron

  Hello Ron

   

  Ok taking in to account you have no "switch" to turn yoru Wi-Fi on and off, 
there is a key which does the same.

   

  On your netbook at the bottom left there is a key marked Fn - this is a key 
that toggles what other keys do.

   

  Now look along the F1-F12 keys and there are symbols on them which are in a 
different colour, the colour will be the same colour as the Fn characters are.

   

  One of them will have a wireless icon (beacon with rings round it.

   

  Press the Fn key plus the key that is marked Wi-Fi and this should toggle 
wireless on and off.

check?

  Hi Ron,

   

  It's just possible your wireless router is set to "Hidden". or to not 
broadcast it's presence.

   

  Ask your wife to try right clicking on the crossed icon, and see what options 
you get.

   

  George.

  Hello George, well as I was explaining to Marie, there is no switch as such 
to switch Wi-Fi on but there is a little thing at the bottom of the screen 
which you have to click.  My wife tells me there is a cross on the top of it.  
Both she and Narrator are telling me that there is no network available.  There 
is because all other devices are working through it.  All leads are connected 
and my IPod is picking up the network so at the moment it is a mystery.

   

  Thanks for helping.

   

  Cheers

   

  Ron

  Hi Ron,

   

  Marie has pretty well answered your question.  Is it turned on?

   

  George.

  Did I miss how you are trying to connect the netbook?  Is it wired to the 
router, or are you trying wirelessly?

  Hello Folks, I have two computers connected with leads and a laptop connected 
with a wireless card.  Using a Netgear modem and router.  I am trying to 
connect my new netbook to the home network but it is saying there is no network 
set up.  My wife tells me there is a cross over where the network icon is on 
the screen.  Any ideas anyone?  All other computers are okay.

   

  A new modem and router combined is being delivered from Virgin on Tuesday.

   

  Cheers

   

  Ron
