If I am not wrong then there should be a function key to turn it on! Just check the manufacturer's manual to turn it on.

Re: advent 4211-B can't find any wireless networks

One of my friend had an Advent 4211 which developed wifi and ethernet connection problems within a few days of her having it. She asked me to take a look as my knowldge of networking and computers is passable, but after trying some of my tricks, I couldn't fix it and so told her to take the Advent back.

When she did that, the 'specialist' in PC-World told her the problem was down to AVG, uninstalled it and suggested she use Norton for anti-virus protection instead (now why isn't that a surprise?! )

I've been running AVG on my Advent 4211 since the day I bought it without any problems, as far as I can tell. I had the usual problem of the wireless connection being dropped and picked up again but no longer have that since I installed the WiFi update.

Re: advent 4211-B can't find any wireless networks

i would like to add that i did search this evening for the same issue and came across your thread. with mine - i do not have AVG installed, nor Nortons, which are usually the two culprits. I have to restart my laptop everytime, and with the restart it connects successfully.
When I try to view all available networks,it sometimes just does not even display the page... even disabling and re-enabling the adapter does nothing. very frustrating. not recommending thislaptop to anyone of my friends... no fun... and as someone else mentioned, the connection keeps dropping. I will stay with Dell!
