Question about Computers & Internet
Does the non working wireless card still show up in the device manager?
if so does it show up as installed or with error?
if not is it enabled in the bios?
Also i have seen people accidently turn off the internal wireless card by pressing the little button on the laptop without realizing it or on some laptops the internal card can be turned on and off with function key combination..
On some models when you turn off the internal wireless card with the litttle switch the card will still show up in the device manager as installed and look ok but will not find any networks at all...
and right clicking on the icon and selecting enable radio does nothing untill you phisically turn it on with the little switch
there should be some sort of light or indicator somewhere on the laptop that lights up when the wireless is on..
what model HP laptop do you have?
