Question about Televison & Video
Just bought this as a used laptop. Everything seems to be working but the wireless connection. When I hook it up via hard wire the internet is accessible. I have a specific DNS ip that my ISP requires to use so I have put that in under TCP properties and as I said it works fine on hard wire.When trying to detect wireless networks it shows NONE available and it is sitting within 1 foot of my own wireless router. I have another laptop it works fine , but it has a swtich you need to turn off and on in order to get on wireless. So I was wondering is there some sort of on/off ''Switch'' on the HP I am not aware of or could this be another issue? Any suggestions would be appreciated for I am getting very aggrevated with it ...lol

Idk if people re still having this problem. But I had it when fixing my sisters laptop. And just hit f10 during the boot and its either in the second tab or third. And its a wlan option. Enable that. And boot up and enable through HP wireless assistance. Hope this helps someone

Go into the control panel, Network adapters and you should see the wireless adapter. If it has a red x on it, it is disabled. If it is disabled, no amount of button pressing will turn it on. Right click and select ENABLE. Then close the panels and hold down the button that is under the light for 2 or 3 seconds and the light should come on. Another thing you can do is replace the keyboard. The button that turns on the wireless is built into the keyboard. If the ribbon cable is bad, or the socket has dirt in it, the button might not be working. You could use a meter and isolate the button circuit all the way to the ribbon cable connector before buying a keyboard too. If you have not taken apart the laptop before this is probably not the problem though. Other thoughts are if the hard drive was recently loaded, xp media center edition might have picked up the wrong driver and doesnt know how to process the "on" signal. Maybe there is a utility or an application that is on the manufacturers website that provides the wireless client - sometimes they have a "transmiter on" clicky box.
