One minute my wireless button was blue and i was on the internet. i logged off the internet and remembered i needed to check something so i went to log back on. i wasn't connected. i looked and the light indicating if the wireless option was on was amber. i can't turn it on and i can't get into wireless assistance to check what the problem might be. Since my operating system was changed from Windows to Ubuntu, the wireless modem light no longer changes from orange to blue.

Re: wireless switch is amber
By default the wireless adapter is enabled on your HP PC. However there are many ways to disable your wireless adapter. It can happen by turning it off in windows or some application may disable it due to execution errors.
Most of the time, when a wireless adapter is disabled on a machine it is very often because someone has pressed the wirless button by mistake. If it has been pushed by mistake, turn the wireless back on by finding the wirless button on your machine and pressing it. Check for button location on the top of the keyboard or the side or front of the PC. Thanks

No when it is blue it means you have internet,when it is yellow or amber there is no signal.Are you sure that your router in its settings that the wireless check box is enabled ? Can you connect with cable for certain.Probably you need to check the setting like I posted here.
I faced the same issue and had to change 3 different routers of 3 other brands first of all switch off your router for 10 minutes and then change your ethernet cable (BLUE COLOR CABLE) with a new one also try changing the sides REMEMBER its a cable that connects from your MODEM to your WIRELESS ADAPTER !! and then switch on your ADAPTER (WIRELESS ROUTER) and wait for 10 last minutes :)
hope i FIXED your problem :)
There should be a little button on the front or side of the computer to turn on the wireless adopter on the computer it usually have the wireless symbol next to it. You should check again and carefully because all modern laptops has one, the symbol look like this.
When you connect to the internet wirelessly and Wii Connect24 your Wii will stay connected and recieve messages, updates, etc. That is why the disk area stays blue and the amber light stays on. Sometimes this will create a power failure. Just unplug your Wii from the wall and let it rest for a few minutes and plug it back in. The problem should be solved.
Wi-Fi Protected Setup Button If you have client devices, such as wireless adapters, that
support Wi-Fi Protected Setup, then you can
use Wi-Fi Protected Setup to automatically
configure wireless security for your wireless
To use Wi-Fi Protected Setup, run the Setup
Wizard, or refer to the “Wireless > Basic Wireless
Settings” section of “Chapter 3: Advanced
Wi-Fi Protected Setup LED (Blue/Amber) It
lights up blue when wireless security is
enabled. The LED flashes blue for two
minutes during Wi-Fi Protected Setup.
The LED lights up amber if there is an error
during the Wi‑Fi Protected Setup process. Make
sure the client device supports Wi‑Fi Protected
Setup. Wait until the LED is off, and then try again.
The LED flashes amber when a Wi‑Fi Protected
Setup session is active, and a second session
begins. The Router supports one session at a
time. Wait until the LED is off before starting the
next Wi-Fi Protected Setup session.
You'll have to hold your reset button down for atleast 10 seconds, or even more, then you'll have to reconfigure you entire connnection at address 192.168.2.1.
However before doing that, try and power down the whole unit for a minute or so and power it back up, then go to you computer's wireless connection and renew your IP address [that's if you have automatically assigned addresses]. otherwise you might have to check that you router and computer are operating on the same page [ by this I mean, if your router is assigning automatic IP, make sure your computer is not set to use a static IP, In my years of network, this has always been problem I have experienced on some routers]
Hi there. The wireless switch on the front bottom of the laptop, it's suppose to be blue when the button is on the right. Right click on computer and select manage, go to device manager, and go to Network Adapters, try to see a network adapter
called Broadcom, if it doesn't appear, it means that your computer
doesn't recognize the wireless card and you may have to reinstall the drivers. Please let me know how you get on.
Your computer is not detecting the wireless network, that's all. Leave it in an enabled state (even thought it's amber), and try a shutdown and restart.
If not, force it to search for wireless networks. It should detect.
By logging off the internet, what do you mean? Shutting your browser, disabling the wireless device under network connections, switching off the radio on the switch on your computer, or something else?
