Is the switch completely broken? Im afraid you will need to use the switch to turn it on.

    The wireless button turns the wireless and bluetooth functions on and off. It also disables the software that manages the wireless on the laptop. You could attempt to enable the wireless with the software that came with it. But according to the manual.

    I'm sure the button under the plastic cover is completely fine unless got wet. Basicly you could remove the plastic cover from it to get to the button/switch inside.

    if the button under there is broken then the whole button board would need to be replaced.

    Try to right click on my computer, then select manage, Then on the management window, on the left side select device manager, then on the right side when the device manager opens open the network connections and see if you can find your wireless and right click enable.

    Also try restarting the laptop, when its starting up keep pressing the wireless button on and off and see if the light comes on, I ones had a laptop for repair and this got the power to turn on, on the wireless.

Wireless capablity turned off in hp probook 4520s


You can use the wireless button or HP Connection Manager (select models only) to turn on and turn

off wireless devices.

NOTE: A computer may have a wireless button, a wireless switch, or a wireless key on the

keyboard. The term wireless button is used throughout this guide to refer to all types of wireless

controls. Refer to the Getting Started guide for information on identifying the location of the wireless

button on your computer.

To turn off wireless devices using HP Connection Manager:

? Right-click the HP Connection Manager icon in the notification area, at the far right of the

taskbar, and then click the power button next to the desired device.

- or -

Select Start > All Programs > HP > HP Connection Manager, and then click the power button
next to the desired device.

Hp mini 1000 does not seem to recognize my wireless network and the wireless network light will not come on. What do I need to do?


Hi there,

The front of the HP Mini 1000 Netbook has two switches and two small lights. The two switches are for power and wireless. The two lights are for hard drive activity and power. Both the power and Wi-Fi switch are designed exactly the same. They are flat with a little bump where a light is.

Check if the switch is on before trying to reinstall the driver.

Hope this helps!

Low wireless signal strength compared to other computers - the netbook consistently reports about half the wireless signal strength that a Dell laptop sitting next to it does. in low signal strength areas...


For HP Mini 1000, the wireless device can be problematic.

I will recommend the HP Mini 210-1084. This has the fastest wireless in the HP Mini range of Netbooks.

Good luck.

This is a critical sign of an unstable system that is typically caused by improper maintenance of the computer. You need to go online and download the windows repair tool and it will fix the problem.

Wireless switch is broken. and i wanna knowhow to turn on wireless without using the button


Since the switch is soldered to the motherboard, I would not suggest messing with it, I would get a small usb network adapter and connect that way. The only way to fix that problem is to resolder a new switch. It cannot be bypassed, it is built into the motherboard circuit. The button has to be in the "on" position to be able to be enabled from the device manager because the "On" button turns on the Wireless radio.
