The following solution has worked for me:
- Right-click "My computer" on the start menu, and select "Properties"
- Go to the "Hardware" tab, and select "Device Manager"
- Check if the wireless adapter is listed under "Network adapters"
- If it's not listed, right-click and select "Scan for hardware changes"

With any luck, the wireless adapter should be detected, and the drivers installed.

Check to make sure your wireless didn't get accidentally turns off. Some laptops have toggle button or switch that can turn the wireless on or off to save power when running on the battery. I've seen plenty of people turn their wireless off without realizing it.

How do i set up my hp laptop to wifi


Please Understand wireless network settings and setup:

Wireless networks depend on special-purpose radio receivers and transmitters that substitute the exchange of messages over the air for the exchange of messages that occurs over wired connections on conventional networks. When you power on your PC, Windows Vista automatically searches for available wireless networks.
The network icon in the system tray, shown in Figure 1, enables you to view a list of local networks that Windows Vista detects. Notice that the network icon in this figure is marked with a red X, which indicates no network connection is currently established.

Figure 1: A red X indicates no network connection is active.
When you click this icon, a window opens indicating you're not connected to a wireless network, as shown in Figure 2.
hpsmb_laptoppcwireless-fg02.jpg Figure 2: The detail window for the network icon provides a link to create a network connection. The window also includes two hyperlinks: Connect to a network and Network and Sharing Center. Click the Connect to a network link to open the Connect to a network window, shown in Figure 3.

What is the operating system on your computer ?
If it is windows XP then you can use windows software to connect to the wireless network. Windows XP has it's own software to connect to the network. For this you will need to start the WZC service on your computer.
When you open the Linksys icon, does it say , adapter is inactive ? If it says that then unplug the adapter and plug it back in. try again and see if that works.

How do I find SSID no on my computor ?


SSID is the name of your wireless network. When the computer searches for available wireless networks, it displays SSIDs (names) of discovered networks.

When you are connected, and you click the wireless connection icon in the system tray, it will tell you to which network name it is connected.

Wi-fi connection


1. First, you have to make sure that the Wi-Fi of your laptop is turned on.

2. Make sure that there's an available wireless network in your area so that you can test if the computer can detect any available network.

3. If you're running Win XP, right-click the wireless icon on your system tray and select "View available wireless networks"

4. If you can't detect any wireless network, right-click the wireless icon on your system tray and select Open Network Connections.

5. Right-click the Wireless Network Connection icon and make sure to enable it.

6. If it's already enabled, try to disable it and then re-enable it.

7. If you can't still detect any wireless network, try this:
- Click the Start > Run > type msconfig > hit Enter

8. Locate the Wireless Zero Configuration and click on it once.

9. Once it's highlighted, locate the Start button on the upper left hand corner of that screen.

10. After starting the Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC), try to detect the wireless network again.

Wont connect to wireless network


first, I suggest trying a different USB port. remove the adapter and the icon should disappear, so if the usb port is loose or broken that may be why its acting like that. Plug it into a different port and try it. You may have to reinstall the driver for the next usb port depending on your system
