    let me know if you see wireless connection in the network connections
    in order to find it, click start --> control panel --> network connections and you must see wireless connection in case of win xp


    start --> control panel --> network and internet --> network and sharing center --> manage network connections and you must wireless network connection under LAN or hi speed connection... in case of win vista


    if you have that ikon that means you have your drivers installed on the computer.

My network connection icon shows that I am not connected to my wireless network when in fact I am. How do I get my network status icon to show accurately?


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to assist you with your problem. Your problem is that your computer cannot detect your wireless router. First we need to troubleshoot where the source of the problem is coming from. I think the problem is that your WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) antennas on your computer have lost its signal strength. To solve this problem, you will need to uninstall the card manually and reinstall it again. First, shutdown your computer and turn it over onto its bottom. If you are not familiar with this process, you will need to unscrew each compartment until you see the one that has your WLAN card configured in it. moz-screenshot.pngThe picture below is an example of how a WLAN card looks on a computer.

You should see some wires connected to it; these are the antennas. Unplug these antennas and uninstall the card, then reinstall the card and replug the antennas (they are color coded, so just match the color with the plug). Rescrew the compartment together and turn the computer over. Restart your computer and check the network connection icon. You should be able to see the signal bars accurately. I hope this solution helps you. Please reply back if you are still receiving technical difficulties.

You need to check first if the wireless switch is turn on.If it is on, check the function key for the wireless. Some computers have function key. Sometimes it is combination of fn and f5. Press those keys at the same time and you should see a pop up window and check if the current status is on. If it is on, uninstall/reinstall the wireless driver in device manager. and restart your computer. If this didn't work. You need to do re installation of your operating system.

My HP wireless doesn't work? I don't have wireless connection on my compaq laptop anymore.


check your wireless adapter is on... the switch is on the front of your laptop and you should show a blue light when it's on, also go into device manager and see network adapters.. you should have 2 (the wire one built-in and your wireless network adapter.. if you only have one network adapter, check the front and see if the light indicating the status of your wireless network adapter is amber.. (if it's showing amber and you're sure it's in the on position you may have a motherboard problem and you may need to send the system back (I just had one of those with a compaq computer and since the item was within warranty the fixed in a week)

if your wireless adapter light is blue and you see your wireless adapter in device manager follow this instructions and you should be ok,
