    I HAVE SIMILAR PROBLEM, EXCEPT IT WON'T EVEN TURN ON AT ALL. I JUST GOT DSL CONNECTION AND I CANNOT USE IT WIRELESS - ONLY WITH THE DSL CABLE.
    THE WIRELSS LAN WIZARD KEEPS TELLING ME TO TURN BUTTON ON, BUT IT WON'T TURN ON.
    IT ALSO SAYS: UNABLE TO DETERMINE WHICH APPLICATION ENABLES WIRELESS LAN. PLEASE ENABLE WIRELESS LAN BEFORE PROCEEDING.
    SO IF IT CANNOT DETERMINE THAT, HOW CAN I DETERMINE IT. IT IS OF NO HELP AT ALL!

I don't have this lappy, however, most newer BIOS settings show an option for a term such as "wireless state" or "Radio status" with options such as on, off, last state. The setting of "last state" should supercede any upgrades or conflicts downloaded after initial settings. Set the BIOS setting to last state and then switch it on. All subsequent boots should have wireless on. To get into BIOS settings, either F2, Delete, Spacebar, or Enter should be pressed during boot sequence. Good luck.

    I am unable to connect internet on samsung r580 windows 7 on my pc win 7 it works fine but it wont works on r580


    Not being able to connect to the Internet depending on what method you are using for your internet connection if wireless or cable or DSL I would reboot everything unplug it all modem routers if any and modem or DSL box and the computer as well. What happens sometimes when Windows sleeps it closes off the Internet connection as well and you may have to log back in. Make sure that you are powered off and then connect everything back up again and let it do its thing and try to access the Internet again.

    If it will not access the internet make sure that you do not have laptop set to wireless if you are using a cable or DSL R-45 cable wiring. I'm assuming wireless for the laptop so make sure that the switch if any is switched to wireless as well.

    If all else fails contact your IP service and have a technician come out and take a peak at it. Often times it has been my IP on their end that does not work and they have to reset the router or modem to get the DNS to work again. Often times it is just easier to call them and have someone come out and fix it should be free for you to have this done. Thanks for using FixYa! I hope this assisted you. John

    Can not turn wireless


    Normally in IBM laptops there is a switch to turn ON the wireless, but if that's not turning it ON then you may check it in the control panel.

    Depending upon the operating system you have, click on following things
    Start
    control panel
    network connecitons(XP) or network & sharing connection (Vista/Win7)
    then make sure that the wireless adapter is Enabled
    Right click and enable it.
    then try to connect to the wireless n/w again

    in case the following steps does not help, reply back with some more information about the issue.
    How it stopped working
    when was the last time it was working fine
    did you installed anything in the computer before it stopped working?
    is there any switch on the laptop for Wi-Fi connectivity.
    which operating system are you using

    You may also log on to HNetworking.com in case you want some tech to take the remote access of your computer and help you with the wireless connectivity issue.

    Hp compaq f500 gf596uar windows 7 - my wireless is not working...i try with other os buth nothing. Sorry for my english


    Hello, Assuming there are wireless networks in range. I would suggest the wireless network on the Laptop has been switched OFF. Look on the front of the laptop for the wireless switch and make sure it is set to the ON position. Once on an ICON on the sttus bar should come on for you to search and log on to the available wireless networks in range.

    I hope this solves your problem you are eperiencing.

    See photos for location of the switch.

    Regards,

    I just bought an HP mini 210 - 2080 and its keeps on turning off by itself.Sometimes it goes on but then it switches off again and again!


    Try logging in safe-mode and see if it switches its self off.
    To log on in safe mode, power the laptop on and keep pressing F8, choose safe mode using the arrow buttons, continue to log on. when you successfully log on, leave the laptop for some time to see if it will switch itself off, if it does switch itself off, then definitely, that will be a hardware related problem.
    if it does not, then that's a virus causing it, email on xrojer2005@yahoo.com to solve the software related problem.

    Wireless switch is amber


    Your computer is not detecting the wireless network, that's all. Leave it in an enabled state (even thought it's amber), and try a shutdown and restart.
    If not, force it to search for wireless networks. It should detect.
    By logging off the internet, what do you mean? Shutting your browser, disabling the wireless device under network connections, switching off the radio on the switch on your computer, or something else?

    Where is the wireless switch on my Acer travelmate 2300? I never have had a problem connecting to the internet before and now I can't get wireless and it is telling me to turn on my wireless switch. ...


    if you look around the laptops sides there is generally a toggle switch that slides from left to right or visa versa :

    If not then there should be an application in the start menu that should allow you to enable / disable the wireless ie turn it off or back on again.
