Cannot switch on wireless connection Packard bell laptop does not have switch


Wireless problems with a Packard Bell PC or laptop can be caused by a variety of issues.


The best troubleshooting resources are the documentation that came supplied with the computer, and the Support section of the Packard Bell website.


Unable To Detect Wireless Network


If the Packard Bell machine is unable to detect a wireless network, the computer itself or the network could be at fault.


Check that a wireless signal is being broadcast via another PC or device, and check that are wireless adapter is installed, complete with the latest drivers, which are available at the Packard Bell website.


Unreliable Wireless Network


If the wireless connection is unreliable, intermittent or very slow, it suggests a problem with the Wi-Fi broadcast.


Try positioning the computer closer to the router broadcasting the wireless signal, or use a signal booster to improve the range.


Download and install the latest driver updates from the Packard Bell website and through the Windows Update tool.


Unable To Connect To Wireless Network


If the computer can detect the network but is unable to connect to it, a network security key may be required. This should have been configured by the person who set up the network. Consult the documentation that came with your router for details of how to change it or generate a new key.


Hope this helps

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

I can not access my internet. It says I have no connection, yet my wi-fi is turned on and I can not detect any problems with the wireless adaptor. I have tried to get help from the router company and...


If your device can detect the wireless router and can connect to the wireless network, that means that there is no problem with the wireless adapter. You need to check if your broadband / internet modem is connected properly to your wireless router.

HP 550 - Unable to detect just a particular wireless network


Given all the circumstances, I can only guess that, for some inexplicable, apparant reason, your network card in your computer is the culprit. Try to get a friend who has the same model to swap cards with you, then you'll know for sure. The other problem could be something to do with the signal and some slight anomoly that is causing your card a problem in detecting it. A communications signal is complicated, and some wireless modems have better circuitry than others, depending on the model. But no matter how we speculate, this is just one of those Twilight Zone enigmas! Best of luck- tricky problem, for sure.

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.

Please make sure that the wireless antenna switch is on. Then enable the wireless feature using the hot key combination for your laptop (if available but need not be done since you were able to detect networks earlier). If you are using Vista, please click on Start-Connect to to see if your laptop is now able to detect networks.
If laptop is not able to detect any networks, please uninstall the wireless network adapter by going to Start - Control Panel - Classic View - Device Manager - Network Adapters - select the one for the  Wireless Network Adapter - properties - driver tab - uninstall - ok. Then please restart your laptop. Click on Start - Connect to  and see if your laptop is now able to detect networks.
If laptop is still not able to detect wireless networks, please click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore then choose a restore point (date) which is a possible time when your laptop was able to detect wireless networks. Laptop will restart automatically and notify you if the restoration is completed. Try Start - Connect to. Hope it works this time. Thank you.

Wireless connection


If this laptop has a wireless switch, make sure it's on.
Did you get the wireless hub?
Wireless is controlled by the wireless zero service, which should turn on automatically when your adapter is detected.
You can turn it on manually in Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services
