Just type three of the comment character in sequence:

VB.NET '''

C# ///
It has to be typed in an appropriate location like before a function or event, wont work in the middle of page_load for example.

You are doing it right. If that's not working you need to check:
Tools>Options>C#>Advanced -- Generate XML documenation comments for ///

There is no toggle for VB it should just work.
