I assume it's a laptop/notebook.
If so then there is a switch near the light that is on when the adapter is on. It will be a very small slide switch, on the front or side edge. Simply find it and slide to on. Or if it's already on then try pressing the fn key and f8 together, as this sometimes is a second wireless switch.
I hope this helps

I do not know my wireless pc


b> If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on. Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks. This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop. When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks. If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off. Locate the wireless switch on your computer. It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front. If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit. Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position. The switch will be clearly labeled. Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on. If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability. The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys. Check your user manual for your computer's key combination. Troubleshoot problems finding wireless networks

If your computer has a wireless network adapter, Windows will automatically detect wireless networks in range of your computer. You can see a list of wireless networks that Windows has detected in Connect to a Network.

  • Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon (eff2d36c-9e0d-4d1a-9859-3af14fa4ccfc_73.jpg or da12251d-1e9a-4032-afae-009876c6c5a3_80.jpg) in the notification area.

If Windows doesn't detect a network that you think is in range of your computer, it could be because of one of the following reasons:

  • The wireless switch on your computer is turned off.

    Many laptops have a wireless switch on the front or side of the computer. If your computer has a switch, make sure it's turned on. Some computers also use a function key combination to turn the switch on or off. Check the information that came with your computer for details on locating the wireless switch.

  • Your computer is too far from the wireless router or access point.

    Move your computer closer to the router or access point. If the computer is portable, try moving it around to determine the range of the wireless signal and the best place to use the computer.

    If you can't get closer to the router or access point, consider buying and installing an external antenna for your wireless network adapter. Many wireless network adapters are set up so that you can attach an external antenna to them, which provides better reception than a built-in antenna. Check the information that came with your wireless network adapter to see if you can install an additional antenna.

  • The wireless router or access point is turned off or isn't working properly.

    There are two things to try:

    • Make sure the router or access point is turned on and that the wireless signal light is illuminated.

    • Reset the router or access point by unplugging it, waiting at least 10 seconds, and then plugging it back in.

I have a665-3daf model wireless turnoff for all i cant make it on by functionkey Fn+F8 didint worked


check if your computer has a hardware switch.
it might look like a latch on the sides, front or back edges of your computer.

if no hardware switches are present:
go to control panel then network/sharing then change adapter settings or network adapters depending on your operating system.
make sure the wireless is not disabled. if it isn't disabled, go ahead and right click on my computer.
go to device manager.
go to your wireless card
hit uninstall driver.(make sure you DO NOT CHECK the delete driver box)
restart the computer and it will reinstall the driver

Cant connect to 2wire dsl cant see network wirelessnot switched ?


firstly does it have a wireless indicator somewhere on the laptop?

most of the indicators located next to bluetooth switch and other indicates. once you identify the indicated then you can solve this problem.

check you wireless network settings. if not the device is disabled or drivers not installed.

if your device is ok, then you check the software for the wireless network. most computers do not indicate that the wireless device is working, try to install a wireless application driver for your laptop and try connecting it a wireless device to see if there is any connectivity.

thank you

Cant play online on cod HELP!!!!!!!!!!


try to reboot your router and modem.

step one turn off your ps3 and wirelss router if you have one and un plug them.

step two turn off modem and unplug that.

then wait a few mins.

then plug your modem in and let it fire up so that all lights are working and you have your dsl light is solid.

then plug in your wireless router if you have one and do the same. you should then see the activity light on the modem go off and on.

once your router is ready and fired up then plug in your playstation. and go through the set up process. do a test and make sure it at least passes the IP test.

then try it again if that doesnt work get ahold of your internet provider

hope it works for ya!

Wireless network does not show up on computer 2wire


First, if no other networks show up also, then make sure the wireless switch on your computer is on. Its usally a on/off switch on the laptop itself.

If that doesnt work, get a computer directly plugged into the 2wire, then login to it and change the power level.

To do this, open a browser (IE: Internet explorer) and type 192.168.1.254 if that doesnt work try these "Home" , " 192.168.0.1" , "172.16.0.1"

This will take you into the homepage for the router, click on home network at the top. Then click on the wireless settings link. This will prompt your for a password, enter it.

"If you dont know your password, click I forgot it will give you a hint. Click I still cant remember, to change it, it will as for either a system key (which is a 10-digit number on the bottom of the router) or a temp password (which you need to call the manufacture to change)"

After inside the wireless settings window, try changing the power level and channel around until you can get it to broadcast.

If none of this works make sure there isnt anything around the 2wire interfering, like portable phones and electronics.

My computer doesn't connect to internet.


Be sure your Wireless card is activated on your PC.
Check manufacturer instruction on How Physical activate it: HP Compaq 6710 has a touch switch on top of the keyboard. Lenovo T62 has a slide switch on front side
Some other Think pad use FN + F5
If you do not see any network be sure WLAN is on than check your WLAN card for wireless characteristics (Control Panel/Network characteristics/Wlan interface properties in General tab identify your device (connect using) May be you have to configure according to your environment

Cant get online or pick up a wireless network?


A couple of issues and questions

First generally a wireless router in installed onto a network either to the ISP's modem or to another router that is connected to an ISP's modem it is not connected on the wan side to a computer (unless that computer is acting as a firewall or proxy server to the internet). Computers are generally connected with a wire to the (optional) switch portion of a wireless router or wireless connection.

Have you tried testing with a computer wired to the router to assure internet access is possible without worrying about wireless issues?

If you are considering encrypting the wireless router did you test it unencrypted first to assure the unencrypted radio transmissions work?

Is the wireless communication encrypted for other computers you own and possibly not for the HP you are now trying to connect?

Are you sure the distance between the wireless router and the garage is not an issue. Perhaps you could test and configure the connection in the room with the router and when it is working move it to the garage.

According to the product specs for the HP Pavilion it has built in wireless B & G you did not include the router manufacturer and model does it operate on the either wireless B or G?
