Question about HP (319468-002) (319468002) 802.11b Wireless Adapter
I want to add a new Gateway notebook to my wireless network using a Linksys router. I keep getting the message" your adapter is turned off". How do I turn it on?
I have same problem with WRT54GS router and WPC54G Notebook Adapter. These worked fine until recently...I suspect something to do with installing XP updates and needing new drivers. I tried everything suggested...even updated LELA to newest version, but no success. After hours of frustration, I was ready to chuck it and head to Best Buy to get something different. But I tried one last solution suggested somewhere and it worked for me. Here it is in a nutshell: Uninstall LELA on all computers...sure it's got nice graphics and features, but who cares if it doesn't work!!! Then plug adapter into notebook and let it find the new hardware on it's own. (Linksys is very adamant about running their CD first, but don't do it! You can run the hardware with Windows just fine without LELA.) When the hardware install wizard asks, then put in the Linksys CD so it can download the drivers only. Then set up the wireless network in your network connections and change any necessary router settings directly by accessing it via 192.168.1.1. Yes, I would love to have LELA up and functioning and feel like I have somewhat given up, but when software creates more problems than solutions, I've gotta cut bait. My network now works great. I put a Network Connections shortcut on my desktop to monitor things myself. It's simple and life is good. From these forums, it is obvious that LELA has some real issues. Too bad Linksys hasn't provided a better software product, considering the huge amount of time and money their customers have invested in trying to get it to work!!

For troubleshooting purposes, ensure that the problem PC and the access point are on same line of sight and try to observe your connection.
1. Go to control panel and click network connections
2. Right-click wireless network connection and click properties
3. Go to authentication tab and ensure that IEEE 802.1x is unchecked
4. Click Ok all the way out
Also, check whether the problem occurs when connecting to other wireless access point. You may try changing wireless channel on the access point.

There is no hard switch for the wifi radio in your laptop model. Look at the Function Keys and tap the key that enables wifi radio

an Access point is to add Wireless to a LAN. (which is ok if you have a Router connected to your LAN).
if you have no Router, and only have an ADSL/Cable modem connected to a PC then you should have got a Router +ADSL/Cable modem instead of an Access point. you can get routers like this which also have wireless, so you get all the functionality in 1 box
Here is a Wireless router, with hub and ADSL +Cable Support
