which offers several other similar articles for different models.


The manual for the NE71B is available for download from the Gateway website here (I think)
http://us.gateway.com/gw/en/US/content/drivers-downloads
(you may choose to start from the main page and choose your location > support > drivers & downloads > select my product from a list > notebooks > NE series > NE71B > choose O/S > Documents > Download User Manual (Windows 8). You may like to do this anyway if you do not have a manual anyway. The Networiking section starts on p44, wireless on/off on p.51, but its not very specific I'm afraid.).
You might try 'Contact Support', 'chat with a support agent' is usually best (typing in a new window)

My digihome wifi sayin disabled I can't go down or use button to enable it is there another way?


Hello Shannon,

Disabled WIFI can be frustrating. In a case like this, there is usually a button on your wireless router or laptop that DISABLES/ENABLES the wifi functionality. I would look for this switch or button and make sure it is ON. On a laptop, it may also be a FUNCTION key at the top of the keyboard. Just hold down the FN key and press the FUNCTION key that has a wireless symbol painted on it.

Otherwise, check the software on your device. Many wifi devices come with software that can be installed from a CD or the Internet. That software may also have a feature that can disable the WIFI.

Good luck!

When I installed internet router wifi connection disable. I called Etislate. They says called D-Link?


Yep. Your computer will switch to the faster ethernet connection and disable the wifi to save power.

If you mean the wifi on the router has disabled then you'll need to reset the router. Check with your ISP first.

My wifi connection is good, but why is the wifi signal by the power button orange now previously it was blue? is this somthing i can manually fix? help


Orange indication means that the wifi is off or disabled. This will occur if:

1. You manually disable the wifi driver
2. You disable the wifi using the keyboard function key
3. You plug the PC into a wired network connection.

Check the keyboard hotkey for wifi and cycle it to see if for some reason the wifi was accidentally disconnected. If that is not the case, check the device manager to see of the wireless network driver is installed and working properly.

Would no battery charger cause wifi to disable


Your power saving settings might be configured to disable WiFi if the laptop is not plugged in
.
The power settings will be in the screens saver section, and in the control panel under Power Options (or just search for Power Options).
Look at the settings for your power plan and tell it not to disable WiFi when not plugged in.

Is the wifi enabled, can you see any wifi networks? If not, make sure wifi is enabled, if there is button on laptop to disable/enable wifi connections, swich wifi on.

Check from control panel -> network (network and sharing center in Vista/Win7) -> change adapter settings. If wireless lan adapter disabled (grayed out).

Connect to bt hub when wired but wont connect wireless


The wireless maybe disable or not install. If the wifi is disable just enable it. Go to control panel locate the wifi icon click it then choose enable
If you cannot see the wifi icon the possible problem is no driver install. Re-install the driver of the wifi network to work out again

How do I turn the radio on the wireless card


When your computer is switched on, the WiFi radio is almost always transmitting or receiving signals. In certain situations, as in an airplane, signals from the radio may cause interference. Use the following methods if you need to disable the radio and use your notebook without emitting radio signals.
Use the Optional Computer Radio On or Off Switch

If your computer has an external switch installed, use it to switch the WiFi radio on or off. See the computer manufacturer for more information about this switch. If you have Intel® PROSet/Wireless installed, the current state of the radio displays in the Intel PROSet/Wireless main window and on the Taskbar.


Use Intel PROSet/Wireless to Switch the WiFi Radio On or Off

From Intel PROSet/Wireless, the WiFi radio can be switched on or off. The status icon on Intel PROSet/Wireless displays the current state of the radio.

To start Intel® PROSet/Wireless, use one of the following methods:
  • Click Start > Programs > Intel PROSet Wireless > WiFi Connection Utility.
  • Right-click the Taskbar icon prosettaskbaricon1.jpg located in the lower right corner of your Windows* Desktop to open the Taskbar menu. Click Configure WiFi.
  • Double-click the Taskbar icon to open Intel PROSet/Wireless.
Switch the WiFi Radio On or Off from the Taskbar Icon

To switch the WiFi radio on or off, click the Taskbar icon image1_ipswtaskbaricon.jpg and select WiFi On or WiFi Off.

How to use the Device Manager to Disable the WiFi Radio

The WiFi radio can be disabled (made non-functional) from the Windows* Device Manager.

Note: If you disabled the WiFi radio from Windows*, then you must use Windows to turn the radio on. You cannot use a hardware switch or Intel PROSet/Wireless to enable the radio again.

Windows* XP
  1. From your desktop, right-click My Computer.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Click Hardware.
  4. Click Device Manager.
  5. Double-click Network adapters and expand the selection by clicking the Plus symbol.
  6. Right-click the installed WiFi adapter.
  7. Choose Disable from the menu.
  8. Click OK.

  2. Click Turn Wireless Off .
Hope this helps !
