HP 6730s laptop - Wifi and bluetooth cannot work together

This laptop has a switch to turn on bluetooth and WLAN HP simultaneously. But at some point I pressed the button and only one activated and the other not. Now when I press the button one activates and the other doesn't.

    I forget the name of it but see if you have a HP connection manager, you can seperately switch on WLAN or Bluetooth or both there

E_hudson is correct, but I would like to add that you should make sure that the drivers are fully updated from HP's support website: support.hp.com

Once you've made sure that all Bluetooth AND WiFi drivers and updated you can look in the bottom right corner (system tray) where all the little icons are and hopefully find one when you put the mouse over it that is some sort of HP Connection or Wireless Device Manager.

If you really can't find it in the systray, try looking in the Control Panel for it.

Testimonial: "Thank you but this is not the solution.. Either WLAN or Bluetooth shows as disabled on the Wireless Device Manager, it so as if I disable/enable the hardware."

  • Tor Nichols Apr 21, 2014

    So can you not enable the other one in the HP wireless device manager software? If you can get into the Windows Device Manager, open up Network Adapters, and double click on the Wireless adapter, take a look at the advanced tab and see if there are any options in there that have to do with Bluetooth. Bluetooth and WiFi use the same 2.4GHz frequency and in order to do both on a computer, they have to collaborate and there is a feature for that on some network cards. The name varies, but it would be in the advanced tab of the network device properties.

On some models check to make sure that the actual physical "switch" is turned on (if there is one). Usually located in the front or side of the laptop. Also, make sure your HOLDING the function key while pressing F2, otherwise it won't work. Hope this helps!

Sometimes if you disable the wireless from HP wireless assistance then it will not get enable even if you try to start it from the switch. So first check that the wireless is on from HP wireless assistance. This kind of issue come most of the time when drivers are corrupted or not installed correctly. Please perform the below steps to get the issue resolved. I don?t know the exact OS installed on your laptop, however you can check the link below and click on the appropriate OS and you will get the latest BIOS update and drivers available for your laptop. But perform the below steps first in order. ø Check - wlan autoconfig is enabled under services list (run>services.msc) ø Enable HP wireless assistant. ø Check - wireless card is installed in Device Manager. ø Check whether the computer is able to detect the wireless networks in range to ensure wireless LED is not defective. ø Update wireless driver and BIOS. ø Reseat wireless card Link for updating the drivers and BIOS. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=449878&taskId=135&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=449877&lang=en&cc=us Plz write back with current OS ,if you get any problem in doing above steps.

How can I configure wlan and Bluetooth on Blu life play X cell phone?


Do you have a wireless (WiFi) home network ? Do you have any other Bluetooth-enabled devices that are turned on that your phone can detect ? You also need to tap on Scan for Bluetooth on your phone for it to start looking for available Bluetooth devices; maybe you need to do the same for WLAN.

My Wi-Fi isn't working isn't working, no matter what I try or do it is not getting any access points, what could be the problem?


Boot to F8 then select Last known good configuration. If no fix then boot back to F8 then safe mode then system restore from the time everything was working fine.

If all no fix do the following:

Check if your laptop can see other network aside from your home network.
If your laptop cannot see any network check if the wifi or wireless switch is turned on.
If the wifi or wireless switch is on then uninstall / reinstall the wlan or wifi driver.

I m not able to connect to bluetooth and wifi please help!!!!!!!!!!


Hi,

Your dell bluetooth must be turned on before able to pairing with other compatible device. Please check bluetooth switch on your laptop keyboard ( if there is you must turn it on also). Most of bluetooth devices are compatible.So please try again your bluetooth pairing .

To activate the wifi , you must covered at active wifi area / Wlan ( hotspot), then click your internet connection on right below corner ( beside battery sign) and open network and sharing center,then activate your wifi . This wifi will not work if you are outside wifi covered area.

If this does not work, check if the driver is installed in your computer by going to the device manager. check under network adapters. If the driver is installed, uninstall the current driver and restart the computer.

If the issue still persists, you may download the driver update at the msi website: http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=nbdriver&maincat_no=135&prod_no=1474. Just make sure the driver you're downloading is compatible with yoru operating system

Bluetooth and wlan not working


This may sound like a stupid question but does your notebook computer have a WLAN/Bluetooth switch somewhere. This can be a touchsensitive "button" with some kind of antenna icon on it or a real switch/button.

If it's turned off, turn it on.

I hope this helps. Please rate.
