    After turn off and on airplane mode, wifi had been disable


    The keyboard of my laptop was broken so I cannot use "Fn" key to switch on the laptop's wifi adapter.
    I am sure airplane mode has turn off my wifi because there is no light.
    I tried to use "fn" of osk but that didn't help..
    The last time also happened to me last year, but that time my keyboard still functioning so I able to solve that problem.
    But now my keyboard not working, is there any shortcut/application/bat/vbs method to turn on without using keyboard?

    @Brink /admin I need to private message you but I cannot see the "PM button" at your profile.
    Can you send a private message to me or add my skype (decomodo90) ?

    Hello Decomodo, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Turning on Airplane Mode would indeed also include turning off WiFi.

    If you like, the shortcut below may help make it easier for you to turn on/off Airplane Mode.

    The shortcuts only simulate the keystrokes to turn it off/on like in the screenshots.

    Do you have Airplane Mode turned off?

    What is the brand and model number of your laptop? Perhaps there may be another way to turn on/off your wireless other than with the broken key on the keyboard.

    The laptop was made in china it doesn't has a name. I have a idea, maybe record the keystoke from other laptop and code a app so it can turn it on. But I don't know how to record keystroke.. It was a old laptop, I checked, there is no other button available.. I noticed the wifi has been disabled after turn off airplane mode,,

    Usually, it's when you turn on (instead of off) airplane mode that WiFi also gets turned off.

    Here's the whole story. I turn on airplane mode > several minutes later I turn off airplane mode > I noticed my wifi had switched off by windows > I uninstall the driver > I reinstall the driver > Because the wifi adapter is in off condition, Windows can't install the driver > it shows error 51

    When I use another hard drive to boot the same laptop my wifi is on. From there I know my wifi receiver still fuctioning. Is there any method to reset or turn on?
    I don't have a copy of windows backup so I can't restore it

    I'm not sure what else you may be able to do if turning off Airplane mode and turning on WiFi above does not work for you to undo the hardware button.

    I think the only solution is record the keystroke of a laptop during turning on wifi, code the keystroke to app, and it might work.. TT
