Wireless disabled or not working

My laptop has a wireless switch with a blue light to indicate the wireless in on. The light is now orange and the button is at the on position. Did I disable my wireless another way by accident? or is it broken?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try:

  • verify in the CMOS/BIOS that the wireless card is enabled;
  • update, re-install the drivers by using the CD that came with your computer;
  • right click on the WiFi icon in Systems Tray and click on repair;
  • turn over the laptop, remove one of the panels, there would be components that are plugged in, remove and clean the little gold pins using a hard pencil eraser.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

I have the same machine and I know if you go to the compaq website, there is a list of certain models with this and other problems that qualify for a free one time repair, even if out of warranty. Go on the live chat there , talk to a rep, and let them know that it is a known problem if they give you a hard time. Good Luck

Hp's or Compaqs come with a wi-fi utility and I dont find it very useful, so first, you might want to uninstall the software from add or remove programs and then use windows to manage your wi-fi.
Once you connect to a wireless network from 'network connections'.
After you perform these steps, the light should not come on anymore (no blue or orange) and you will need to mange your wireless connections through windows.

The orange light indicates that your wi-fi is turned off or inactive.
The Blue like indicates that you are connected to an active wireless network.

You just lost the signal, nothing is broken. Reboot your computer and try to set it again. The internet servers at the Internet Service Provider goes down sometimes.

    Have you called your Internet Service Provider. Sometimes they have to reset your wireless from there end. If that is the case then there is nothing you can do. Before doing anything else give them a call.

Make sure your wireless switch is turned on. On most computers, there is an LED light that glows blue when the wireless device is turned on and enabled, and glows orange when off or disabled. Some newer models use a different color scheme, see the user guide for more information and the location of your switch.

If your switch is on and the light is blue, you may have a driver problem. Go into device manager and uninstall the drivers for the wireless card and re-install them. You should look on the HP web site for an up to date driver. You can connect ti the internet with this machine by plugging in a Cat5 ethernet cable between the port on your router and the port on the laptop. A blue or yellow cable should have come with the router.

If the problem is there both wired and wireless, the problem is then narrowed to your computer's modem/nic device. Speak with a Laptop repair tech about replacing this bit of hardware. When did you lose connection with Internet? Recently or long ago?

Wireless switch is amber


By default the wireless adapter is enabled on your HP PC. However there are many ways to disable your wireless adapter. It can happen by turning it off in windows or some application may disable it due to execution errors.

Most of the time, when a wireless adapter is disabled on a machine it is very often because someone has pressed the wirless button by mistake. If it has been pushed by mistake, turn the wireless back on by finding the wirless button on your machine and pressing it. Check for button location on the top of the keyboard or the side or front of the PC. Thanks
