Bluetooth connections allow devices to connect without the use of wires or cables.
Some users of the Sony Vaio laptop computer have encountered problems with the connection of Bluetooth devices with their computer.

The problem lies with turning on the Vaio's Bluetooth function.
This is turned on through the computer's Wireless Switch Settings manager.

The icon for this is in the system tray in the taskbar when the computer is first purchased.
Double-click the "Wireless Switch Settings" icon in the system tray of the taskbar.

It is a a blue-green icon with "LAN" in one corner and "B" in the other.
Check the "Enable Bluetooth Device" setting in the Bluetooth Device section.

Click "OK."

If the device was already enabled, change the wireless LAN from "2.4GHz" to "5GHz" because, as the warning message should say, using the 2.4GHz wireless LAN and the Bluetooth device can make the connection unstable.

Click the "Apply" button after the appropriate boxes are checked to activate the Bluetooth signal. A blue light should come on near the computer's on/off switch for the Wi-Fi radio.

Click "OK." Another dialog box should appear explaining that the Wireless Switch Settings icon should now be in the taskbar.

Use this icon if you need to turn off or on the Bluetooth device in the future.

how to turn on bluetooth radio


Which operating system ???...
There are a variety of ways to connect to the Internet or a home/business network using your Hewlett-Packard (HP) desktop computer---via a modem, Ethernet cable and even wirelessly.
A wireless connection works by sending a signal from your modem or router to your HP desktop's built-in wireless radio.
The radio receives and processes the signal so you can access the Internet or a home or business network.
In order for the signal to be received by your HP desktop, you must enable the wireless radio within the computer's configuration.

Click "Start," "Control Panel."
Double-click on the "HP Wireless Assistant" icon.
The HP Wireless Assistant dialog box will open.
Click the "Turn On" button next to the words "Wireless LAN."
Click "Close" to activate the wireless radio.

I have a dell dimension 4600 which is having intermitent problems connecting to the internet via a hardwire connection to a verizon fios wireless router. The router works fine with my dell laptop both when wired and wireless. Updated network driver on the dimension 4600, checked cables, reset TCP/IP and DHCP settings, even rolled back system restore to before problem existed - I am at a loss for what to try next. Any ideas other than getting a new computer or reverting back to my cablevision IP service and modem?


I assumed you adapted the pc with a device for wireless connection ..if all the other are OK ..the problem is this device ......try it on other computer ..if it works ..its just a compatibility issue ..if not its a problem with it ...
also try to change the freqvency they work in ..if it possible ....or change the position ..cause they work on a radio wave and you might interfere with something when it goes out of signal ...
