Try going to Control panel/network connections and see if it shows the wireless lan. if it does then right click and select uninstall. When that has finished reboot the machine and let it find and install the wifi lan again. Now check it. If still no go it could be a variety of problems including the keyboard itself or even the wifi network card

Same BS wifi problem as everyone else


Have you tried restoring the computer back a couple of days to see if that clears up the hardware hiccup? You can also go to device manager and uninstall the device and delete the drivers. Turn the laptop off, take the wireless card out. Start the laptop back up and boot it fully....After a few, shut down again. Install the wireless card and restart the laptop. When asked to install the drivers for new device found, say ok, make sure you are online with an ethernet line so windows can go online and load the newest drivers unless you have them on your C drive already.

My compaq presario f500 wlan disappeared, what now?


Restart your computer, then right-click on my computer-go to properties, ---locate and click on device manager, when you get to device manager page, locate your wireless network adapter under network adapters and right-click on it, then select uninstall, after this, go to actions on that same page, and select scan for hardware changes, this would re-install and solve your WLAN adapter problem.
Another thing you can just do is, after uninstalling it, just restart your system. At the next system restart, your PC will automatically re-install it and fix the problem.
Hope it helps you out!
Goodluck!

I tend to not use HP or anybodies Wireless Assistants. But you ought to be able to see in Device Manager and Networks wether Windows thinks that the wireless card is working or not. Windows uses Wireless Zero Configuration Service to control Wireless Cards. You might have to tell the HP gizmo to let windows manage the wireless.

You might also have to turn the computer over and find where the wireless card is - and check that it is still seated properly in it's slot. That's a pretty advanced thing - and should only be done with the Service Manual or Owners Manual at hand to tell you how.

Mainly the hardware should be showing up in the Device Manager as "working properly" - if not maybe somehow the device driver software got damaged or removed?

I have COMPAQ PRESARIO F30US the wireless assistant is not workin


First check to make sure that you're wireless internet is turned on. Sometimes there is a button to push above the keyboard and others it is an FN key combination. If that does not work then go into Device Manager. Look for your wireless adapter, if there is a yellow! or a Red X, then right click on it and update driver. Finally, in Device manager right click on your wireless adapter and do a driver rollback. This will uninstall the new driver and give back your old one, if your old one was working. Repost after you tryed those three options.

Wlan disabled


If you have vista click the start button and in the start search type "hp wireless assistant". It should show up in your list while you type it. Click on it. Once the assistant box shows up, click on "properties". A "settings" box should show up. The main one you need here is "independant controls for installed wireless device". Check that box. The other ones are icons and indicators that you can check at your discretion. If in doubt, check them all. Hit the "apply" button. Then in the upper right hand side of the box hit the button that says "turn on". This should activate the device and if you have a light up indicator on your computer, it should change color or light up. That should do it. Kind of weird how it gets to that point.
