How to turn on the wireless network on my hp laptop it was working yesterday.


1.Check if the wireless switch is on, on your laptop.
2. If it is on then check if the network adaptors are installed or not. You can check that by going into device manager ( start - run - devmgmt.msc). If it is not installed you will find a exclamation mark or simply go to your manufacturers website and update your wireless driver.
3.Then go to Start\Connect To\Show All Network Connections (or, if this doesn't show up on your computer, Start\Control Panel\Network And Internet Connections\Network Connections). For your wireless card, remove it from the bridge (right click on the wireless network and enable it if it is disabled and then if you have a option remove it from bridge click on that.)
4.Restart your wireless zero configration. Go to control panel/Administrative tools/Services, right-clicking on the "Wireless Zero Configuration", and telling it to stop. After it stops, right-click on it again, and tell it to start, and then wait a minute or so and see what happens.
then try to connect and see if you can for this go to the network and sharing center search for all the wireless networks and try to connect. I think this should do it for you. If not reply with the message or error you get.

Laptop not connecting to Wireless network


Questions:
What operating system?
You say it was working, but hasn't for the past 3 days. Were there any changes to your system 3 days ago that may have contributed to this?

NOTE:
Above the keyboard, embedded in an area that also contains the speakers, is the on/off switch, which has a pale blue backlight when the notebook is on. To its left is a wireless on/off button that glows deep blue when Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are active.
What color is it?

If you push this once, does the color change? Does your laptop connect with this indicator at EITHER color?

Have you bothered to go into the BIOS? (Press F1 as soon as you power on the machine)
I'm not intimately familiare with this machine, but there are a number of settings in the BIOS related to devices, one or more of which might enable/disable wireless.

Not able to type in network key for wireless


1) If you are using the Windows Default Wireless Network Connection. Open the windows where you you will see a list of all wi-fi connections near by your location. On the left panel(Related Tasks) click on "Change Advance Settings" >> Wireless Network Connection Properties >> Click "Wireless Network" Tab >> from the Preferred Networks: list, remove the wi-fi connection you are trying to connect. Once your W-Fi connection settings are removed. You can either add it manually clicking on the Add button and entering all informaiton manually, or from the wi-fi network list click the network name it will ask you to enter the netowkr key....

OR

2) if you are using any other Wi-Fi connection application, like the Intel's, follow the same procedure. delete the settings and try connecting again.

Limited or no Wireless connection

Lost the wireless icon and switch is always in yellow


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
