There is a mechanical problem with the R3000 buttons, (especially the wireless button and volume-down button) where they seem to push fine but are in fact failing to make electrical contact. I know of two work-arounds.
* Try pushing the button with a capped pen, gently at first, and then with increasing pressure. (Not so hard you break the plastic, please!) I suspect this gives the buttons just enough extra "oomph" that contact is established.
OR
* Push up on the battery compartment while pressing the buttons. If the battery is in, you can acheive this same effect by putting your laptop on a table and popping up the screen, then applying downwards pressure on that corner of the laptop body while pushing the button. I suspect this aligns things properly so that the button is able to depress just a hair further.

You may even find that these actions "loosen things up" enough to cause the buttons to work like new for a little while. I hope this works for anyone reading this!

I had the same problem and found that it was enabled in the network connections & no issues under device manager. Mine had to have the control panel with the buttons (wireless network etc.) on it replaced... Mine also had the mute button not working at the same time! I hope you get it fixed

SOURCE: can't connect using wirless internet with dell inspiron 2200

There is no switch on an Inspiron 2200. I would go to Dell's website and download the drivers for your model # and then uninstall the existing adapter. then try installing the new driver and let me know what happens.

SOURCE: where is the wireless connection button on the acer aspire 6930?

The switch for the 6930 is located just above the NumLock key. It actually looks like an LED indicator of a satellite dish, but it's not. It's the button for the WiFi enable/disable. Push it hard...

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I get a message "internet


check if you have internet connection. if you are using wireless connection make sure youre wireless is connected. If you are using Ethernet cable make sure that ethernet cable is plug in tight on both ends (from your computer and from your modem).

after checking all cable connection and still can't connect to the internet turn off modem for 20 seconds then turn it back on. If you have router turn off your router as well.

Cannot find wireless icon or connect to the internet


First off, make sure that you haven't accidentally toggled off your wireless card. On the Aspire One there should be a small toggle WiFi button along the bottom right edge of the base. make sure that the WiFi button is lit, if not, try pressing the button to toggle it on again.

Wireless connection to Router is OK. But can not brouse internet.


If you go to control panel, then to internet options, on the connections tab, click the LAN settings button. Make sure there aren't any boxes checked, then hit OK, and hit OK again to get out of there.

If your connection is still not working, go to Network Connections in control panel. Right-click your wireless connection and go to properties. There will be a list of items with checked boxes. Scroll down to the Internet Protocol(tcp/ip). Click it one time to highlight it, then click the properties button. Make sure your settings are Obtain IP address automatically. And Obtain DNS server address automatically.

You should be working. If not, let me know.

Hi,

Two things you can try before trying your browser/Internet connection:
1. Right click on the Wireless Network Connection Icon, click on Repair. Allow the computer time to repair its WiFi connection and some other settings;
2. Right click on the Wireless Network Connection Icon, click on Status. Click on properties button, select TCP/IP (Internet Protocol), click on Properties button, verify that the option "Obtain IP address automatically is ticked, OK, OK.
3. In your browsers, verify/modify settings:
In Mozilla, click on Tools, Options, Advanced tab, Network tab, Settings button, tick "Auto-detect proxy settings for this connection, OK, OK;
In IE, Tools, Internet Options, Connections tab, LAN settings button, check "Automatically detect settings" (& pls make sure there is no check mark on the Proxy server), OK, Advance tab, check Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections.
In Opera, Tools, Preferences, Advanced tab, Network, Proxy server buttons, check "Enable HTTP 1.1 for proxy, OK, OK.

Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information. Hope that this be of some help/idea.

Good luck and kind regards.
