Wireless won't work on my HP TC1100 tablet

Hi - About 6 weeks ago I bought a tablet PC (it was used, an ebay purchase) and everything was working fine, including wireless. A week later the hard drive failed, but it was replaced by the seller in person for no charge and he tested the wireless at his home before giving it back to me. Once I arrived home I couldn't get the wireless to work. Internet works fine through an ethernet cable. When I open the view available wireless networks it just says none are in range. I even reset my wireless router and i know it is working fine, works ok with my brother's wii.

Thanks for the help!!

Also check the compaQ menu that is the hardware toggle to turn wireless on and off. there is no function keys like most laptops.

near where the power button is there is a button labeled Q. which will bring up a settings menu like an on scree display and that is where you toggle wireless hardware support on or off

Do you have the restore disks for the tablet? The second disk has the drivers and reloading the driver should fix the problem

Is your wireless adapter actually turned on? The little "radiating antenna" light below the screen should be on. If not, click on the radiating antenna with your stylus, and it will turn on.

Hi,
if you have installed all drivers correctly, then you have to enable the wlan with the q-menue software. this software is provided on the hp homepage.

You use Q-Menu to turn on or off WLAN. Go to HP and download/install Q-Menu:

I changed the operating system now i have windows 7 on the compaq tc1100 and now i can not use the wireless how can i fix this??


Access the manufacturer's web-site:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Home.jsp?lang=en&cc=ca&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=376810&lang=en&cc=ca

and you'll see that no device-drivers for Windows 7 are available from HP.

This might mean that HP has submitted the device-drivers for your wireless adapter to Microsoft.
If so, try: http://WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com and do a search for "optional hardware updates".
If there is a device-driver, Windows Update will offer it for downloading/installing.

Check to make sure your wireless card is enabled in the BIOS. hit f10 or the toggle switch @ startup. go to Devices in the BIOS and check to make sure both options for your wireless card are turned on. I had this issue with the tc1100 with the 2200bg intel wifi card.
