Wireless Connection failed

Dear Sirs/Madams

My laptop used to connect to internet via wireless with no problem. Just today I have got problem. The computer cannot sense and find wereless services although there are several. When I click the icon, there is no any wireless service listed. And therefore, it cannot connect.

In the device manager also, the wireless (Wi Fi) adaptor is not listed. There is only the network card listed, and the coputer can connect via ethernet cable. Can you please help me restore wireless connection?

    wireless radio off

  • cecilsmom May 04, 2009

    I have a lenovo Y410 laptop and my wireless connection just stopped working for no reason. I can connect using ethernet cord and have no idea what has happened. I have done the "repair this connection" and that doesn't work. Without the ethernet cord I can connect to networks but it says "local access only". Not sure what to do, took it to Tiger Direct and they said it was more than likely a virus and wanted $180 to scan it. I decided to try other avenues first as I don't think it's a virus but a hardware problem. Any suggestions? What can I do? And yes, the switch for wireless is "ON". Thanks for any info anyone has.

Did you make any hardware or software changes? You don't say.

Try seeing if your wireless radio is turned on. Most laptops have some kind of switch or Fn key combination that will turn off the wireless networking radio to save power. You might have inadvertently shut it off.

On the other hand, if it's a software thing and it only happened today, try using System Restore in Accessories --> System Tools and go back a day or two. If it's a software issue, that may resolve it.

Post back with any problems.

Hi, you can use restore point for that matter. Here are the steps:

  • Use System Restore

    Start the System Restore Wizard and follow the prompts. To use the System Restore Wizard, make sure you're logged on as an administrator, and then follow these steps:
     
    1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore. 

    2. On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next. 

    3. On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to and then click Next. 

    4. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs. 

    5. Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point. 

    6. The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK. 

    After reviewing the stability of your system, you can choose another restore point or undo this restoration. Just open System Restore and make the appropriate choice. After you use System Restore, you'll have an additional task, Undo my last restoration, on the System Restore Welcome page. Remember that you'll have to reinstall any programs that were installed after the restore point.

    If System Restore doesn't work in Normal Mode, it might work in Safe Mode. To use System Restore in Safe Mode, press the F8 key during reboot and choose Safe Mode. When your computer starts in either Safe Mode or Normal Mode, System Restore can be used to capture a working previous state. System Restore can't be opened unless the system is bootable into one of these modes.
OR try this:
  • Run the Repair tool on the wireless network adapter.
  • Note: 
    To run Repair, right-click the wireless connection icon in the notification area or in Network Connections, and the click Repair.
Symptom: There are no visible wireless networks or the Wireless Networks tab is not present in the Network Connections folder

Corrective Measures :
  • Check to see if the Wireless ZeroConfig Service is running by checking the state is Started in the Services Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in.
  • Use the Services console to configure the Wireless ZeroConfig Service to start automatically.
  • A wireless network adapter driver that fails in the early stages of service startup can cause the Wireless ZeroConfig Service not to initialize on that interface. If this is determined to be the problem, install the most recent version of the driver for that adapter.
*Please drop me a comment. I am here to help you.

This sounds like an issue compaq and HP have with certain models. If this is the models we are talking about conact them via phone or live chat on their web page. They are doing one time repairs on these models even if out of warranty.

I wonder if the motherboard has bluetooth integrated or I have to put an external bluetooth devise


One way to find out:
Click on the start button > right click on 'computer' > choose properties > (top left) device manager > you will see a list of drivers
Bluetooth should be near the top
IF you don't see Bluetooth, you will need to purchase an external Bluetooth receiver.

Does it actually have a wireless network adapter? Check the network adapter settings. Does it show both LAN and wireless? If it does you may need to use one of the Function keys to launch the interface to turn on the wireless.

Bluetooth & sound


Generally, connecting phones via bluetooth to a laptop just allows for file transfer between the two devices. It is not to input sound from the phone through the speakers of the laptop. You would need a bluetooth audio device for that such as bluetooth speakers or headphones

Removing bluetooth chip


Without knowing what the desktop computer motherboard is, I\'d only be guessing as to location of Wi-Fi chipset.
However even if I knew the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number; the point is Moot.

A) You remove that Wi-Fi chip, and kiss the motherboard goodbye.
It\'s designed into the circuitry of the motherboard.

Isn\'t going to be jumper wires taking it\'s place, and making connections to circuit traces on the motherboard.

B) Do you have a wireless router?
Dunno.
Do you have a wireless connection set up?
No.

You can use just a LAN connection. (Hard wired)

C) Suggest if having a Bluetooth option on your motherboard is not an option then use a different motherboard that doesn\'t have that option.

How do I start bluetooth on the qosmio g25-av13?


Try the ff:

1. Are you also using a wireless internet? If you are and you cannot also connect on wireless, make sure that the wireless is enabled on your laptop. On the left side of the laptop there is a on/off switch push the switch to on. (beside the usb port).

2. if it is already on, make sure that the bluetooth is enabled also, you can check it on control panel, system, hardware, device manager, bluetooth, right click on bluetooth driver, if you see enable bluetooth click on it, if you see"disable bluetooth" that means it is already enabled.

3. If the above is already configured, lastly, look for the bluetooth icon (bluetooth manager) on the lower part of the screen on the taskbar/tray if you see the bluetooth icon, right-click on it then click "Enable Bluetooth Radio". Now, if there is no bluetooth icon on the tray at the lower right of the screen, go to Start, Toshiba, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Settings, inside the Bluetooth SEttings, click on Bluetooth, Options, CLick on Enable Bluetooth Power, also, inside the Tray Icon (still inside Bluetooth Settings) select an icon so you can always see the status of your bluetooth on the Tray and you don;t need to do and check everything everytime you cannot connect via Bluetooth.

Hope this helps.
