You need to check if your wireless adapter is on by going to device manager and looking for wireless adapter etc,assuming you are using a windows o/s. You also need to check if you have switch on the adapter manually as many laptop provide a button or manual key to put it off for power efficiency reasons..Hope this helps and rate my answer.Thanks

I have an hp compaq and it connects everywhere except my house?


To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I hooked up my D'link to modem and computer and connection is good. But i can't find it when i search on laptop wireless connection. I think you need i driver but i can't find one. Thank You


The Network and Sharing Center in Microsoft* Windows Vista* can be used to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If an Internet connection is not automatically made by the operating system, you may need to contact your access point (AP), broadband wireless router manufacturer, or Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Set Up a Secure Wireless Connection to the Internet


These steps assume that your network adapter; AP or router; and cable, DSL or another type of modem have already been physically connected and configured. They allow you to create a new connection and configure it accordingly.

Follow these steps to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If a wireless profile does not exist, you will need to create a secure wireless profile before you can set up a wireless connection to the Internet.

1. Access the Network and Sharing Center.

2. Select Set up a connection or network.

3. Click Connect to the Internet.

4. Click Next.

5. Select Wireless. At this point, if the network(s) that are listed say that the network settings do not match the network requirements, as shown in Figure 1, create a secure wireless profile and then follow the steps again.

6. Select a network and click Connect. If you are not connected to the Internet, you may need to contact your AP/router manufacturer or ISP.

Access the Network and Sharing Center


To access the Network and Sharing Center, use one of the following methods:
  • Start » Control Panel » Network and Internet » Network and Sharing Center
  • Start » Network » Network and Sharing Center
  • Right-click the network system tray icon (the icon that displays two computer monitors) » Network and Sharing Center

My wireless assistant has stopped working and the light stays orange


I had the exact same problem...and the wireless adapter was not visible under device manager. The light stayed orange with the switch in either the on or off position. I did all the whole driver update thing and eventually replaced the wireless adapter but no change. Finally I went into the BIOS (F10 on startup) and reset the bios configuration to the default settings EXIT>LOAD SETUP DEFAULTS). It has worked perfectly ever since.

Wireless switch orange all the time on hp g6000 cant connect to web, was working perfect just stopped,


Hi
1 thing for you to check first.Go to Start-Control Panel-System-Hardware-Device Manager.Look down at the Network Adapters category and see if your device somehow became disabled,and if so right click on it and select enable.If it's x'd out,see if it tells you there is a driver problem.
Next,if you still have a connection to a desktop and are using a wireless router,try going to the Router's website and go through the wireless and network setup processes again.And see if that helps.
If you can't do anything there,the cheapest fix is to get a USB network dongle.You can run your laptop connection through 1,and you really have no other option if your onboard adapter has gone bad,other than take it to a shop,and that will be far more expensive.
If this helps,would you please rate my post?
Let me know what happens.

Wireless not turning on


If you can’t see it in the device manager under network adapters or unknown devices, it’s probably a hardware failure
