To get the icons back, enable the connection in the "managing your network connections" area.Network Connections icon in the Control Panel. If I go in there and click on Wireless Network Connection, it re-enables it and life is good again :-) RICHARDM69

HP and Compaq have several models with issues regarding startup and also losing the wireless adapter. They are offering one time fixes for free even if out of warranty. Go to their web page and go to the support page and start a live chat to get this resolved. My wife has the same model with the starup problem. We contacted them about 3 days ago and just got the shipping box. Give it a try and good luck

Lost wireless connection in ubuntu laptop


Try recycling the router by unplugging it and plugging it back up.

Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look on both sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

I do not see any wireless icon in the network connection...i dont know what to do...please help me....


First go to the control panel > device manager (In XP the manager is in the System folder). Scroll down to network adapters, open it and look at the adapters listed....there should be two, one should be an ethernet card and the other a wireless or WLAN card. Look to see if there are yellow icons by their names. This usualy indicates a problem with either the card or the drivers running them. If they do not have yellow trouble symbols by them, then make sure the wireless switch is turned on either by switch on the outside of the laptop or by an Fn key combination. In the case of your laptop, the switches were optional, but just in case look on the front edge of your laptop, by the audio jacks on the left side should be your wlan switch, make sure it is in the "on" position. If there are yellow icons by the wireless, try right clicking on the adapter and uninstalling it. Then reboot, make sure you are connected to the internet via ethernet cable, you will want to let windows search windows update for a new driver when it reinstalls the device upon rebooting. See if that takes care of the problem. Also, if you have changed the way your system boots like say "selective startup" through the msconfig command, that may need to be temp. changed until this is cleared up, then you can go back to it.

Dell Inspiron 6000 won't connet wireless network after reinstall


check DEVICE MANAGER if the wireless card have the right driver installed. if you found that the wireless card have yellow exclamation point on the right it means, you installed a wrong driver.

check also in BIOS if the wireless card is enable and the switch is turn on.

press Fn+F2 to enable wireless radio/anthena (funtion key with wireless icon in blue color)

some dell laptop have hard switch located right side check this and turn the switch on.

if you want to see the icon n task bar, go to control panel....network connection...right click on wireless adapter...select properties...check Show on taskbar
