There's some confusion over terminlogy too.

'Keyless Entry' simply means that you have a card rather than a key (it's a bit of a con, because there's still the emergency key hidden in the card. Really, it's just a gimmicky way of repackaging what most cars have - a radio remote for the central locking built into the key.) You still have to press the buttons on the card to lock and unlock the car, and you still have to stick the card in the slot in order to start the engine. If you have a card, then you have Keyless Entry.

'Handsfree Card' is the more sophisticated system. In this instance, the car will unlock when you break the light beam behind the handle, but only when the card is in radio range. The car will lock when it sees the card go out of range.

There are subtle differences in the operation of the handsfree card between the Laguna and the Megane, so I can't tell you exactly how it should operate. However, if you do have handsfree, you should be able to start the engine just by holding down the clutch or brake and pressing START. As long as the card is inside the car, this should work. If you have to put the card in the slot to get the car to start, then you do not have the handsfree system.
