If the button or on/off switch that is provided for the WiFi (may have a line with three curved lines coming off of it as a symbol for the button) is toggled or enabled and the wifi won't turn on, then there is a good chance that the driver for the wifi isn't loaded.

You can tell if the driver is missing by opening the Control Panel, opening System, opening Device Manager and looking for a Network Adapter category. Expand the Network Adapter category by clicking the plus sign and look for a WiFi adapter in there. If it has a yellow exclamation point ! on it then there is a problem with the network card and it needs to be reinstalled. If there isn't a WiFi or Wireless Network adapter in there, chances are it is found under a category called "Other Devices" and it still needs to be reinstalled.

To install it, you will probably have to delete the device out of the device manager (highlight it and press the delete key on the keyboard) and then plug your laptop into wired network connection (usually your router or internet service modem will have a network port that you can plug into directly with an ethernet cable). You'll go to the manufacturer's website, click on support and search for drivers for your laptop. Be sure to go to the network section and download and install the network driver for your system.

SOURCE: where do I find the button to start the Wi-fi ?

As far as I know - the wireless button is on the left of the power button (the middle one)

If I remember corectly, the button should have three "modes" tap once - bluetooth, tap twice - wifi, tap three times - both.

But that could be just my memory acting up and there could be only one mode (on/off) in which case - check if the wireless is enabled in the system settings and/or BIOS.

SOURCE: I am not able to

"Wireless LAN" is the same as wifi. The HP 6535b does come shipped with wifi by default. The wifi can be turned on an off with a button on the laptop. The button looks like a typical wifi symbol (or a palm tree) as is located on the top panel above the keyboard, just to the left of the HP logo. If it is turned on it will be blue, if it's off it will be orange. As long as that is on you should be able to see any wifi networks in your area. If you can see the network but can't connect (even if you type in the right key) the issue may be that the wifi network is encrypted with WPA2 and you don't have the proper Windows patch installed. If you have Windows XP you'll need service pack 3 or the WPA2 patch from Microsfot (google "KB893357" and it's the first link).

I just switched to a different internet provider. Alexa says she is having trouble connecting. What should I do?


You probably need to connect to your new wireless router.

Open the Alexa app.
In the Alexa app, open the left navigation panel and then select Settings.
Select your device and then select Update Wi-Fi. If you're adding a new device to your account, select Set up a new device instead.
On your Echo device, press and hold the Action button for five seconds. The light ring changes to orange, and your mobile device connects to your Echo device. A list of available Wi-Fi networks appear in the app.
Note: The Alexa app may ask you to manually connect your device to your Echo device through your Wi-Fi settings.
Select your Wi-Fi network and enter the network password (if required). If you don't see your Wi-Fi network, scroll down and select Add a Network (for hidden networks) or Rescan.
Optional - Save your Wi-Fi password to Amazon: Any Wi-Fi passwords saved during setup automatically appear when you connect a new Alexa device to the same Wi-Fi network. The password is also remembered if you switch between saved Wi-Fi networks. For more information, go to Saving Your Wi-Fi Passwords to Amazon FAQs.
Optional - Connect to a public network: Enter any required information if you are connecting to a public network that requires a web browser to sign in, like a school or hotel. The information could be a pre-shared password, room number, or just a button to accept conditions for using the network. This information cannot be saved to Amazon. Contact the network owner for more information.
Select Connect. After your device connects to your Wi-Fi network, a confirmation message appears in the app.

My zte lever won't hook up to my home Internet.. Please help


This tutorial will explain how to get connected to Wi-Fi on your ZTE Tania Connecting your phone to a Wi-Fi network means you can access the internet, download apps and perform other tasks without incurring data charges.
This guide will show you how to get connected on the ZTE Tania.
How to connect to a Wi-Fi network
  1. From the main menu either swipe right-to-left on the touchscreen or press the right arrow button on the top right of the interface.
  2. Scroll through the menu and find the 'Settings' icon, then tap it.
  3. Press the button marked 'Wi-Fi'.
  4. Tap the Wi-Fi networking On/Off switch to turn Wi-Fi on.You'll then see a list of available wireless networks.
  5. Select the network you want to connect to.

  • If you selected a secured network a password box will pop up. Enter the required password and then press 'Done'.
When you're connected to a wireless network, the wedge-shaped Wi-Fi connected icon appears in the status bar and shows you the signal strength - indicated by the number of bands that light up.
Unless you have wiped your phone, you won't be required to re-enter Wi-Fi details again as your handset should remember them.
How to connect to hidden networksA Wi-Fi network might be hidden, which means the network name isn't broadcasted. In this case, it won't appear in the list of available networks on the Wi-Fi Settings screen and a notification won't appear when the network is in range.
To connect to a hidden Wi-Fi network when it's in range, you'll need to enter the network name and password. Remember that the network name and password are case sensitive.
  1. From the main menu either swipe right-to-left on the touchscreen or press the right arrow button on the top right of the interface.
  2. Scroll through the menu and find the 'Settings' icon, then tap it.
  3. Press the button marked 'Wi-Fi'.
  4. Ensure that Wi-Fi is switched on.
  5. Press the 'Advanced' button.
  6. Tap the plus (+) icon.
  7. Enter the network name.
  8. Press the 'Add' button.
  9. On the 'Sign In' screen, enter the password, then tap 'Done'.
How to disconnect from a Wi-Fi network

  2. Scroll through the menu and find the 'Settings' icon, then tap it.
  3. Press the button marked 'Wi-Fi'.
  4. Tap the Wi-Fi Networking On/Off switch to turn Wi-Fi off and disconnect from the wireless network.
Alternatively, you can also press and hold the network name and then tap 'Delete' to disconnect.
However, bear in mind this removes the security settings if it's a secured network, meaning you'll need to enter them again next time you reconnect to that Wi-Fi network.

I set up my own wireless network and now my printer will not communicate with my laptop.WIFI light flashes red. Have tried everything to reconnect. Lexmark Z2420.


I suggest you reset the Lexmark Z2420 wireless network adapter. To reset, do the following: With the printer on, press and release the power button. The printer will enter power save mode. Now, press and hold the paper feed button. While holding down the paper feed button, press and release the power button. Continue holding the paper feed button for 30 seconds. Release the paper feed button. This will reset the internal network adapter (INA). When the printer has been reset, a solid orange Wi-Fi indicator light should appear. If Wi-Fi light goes back to flashing red, you have not successfully reset the printer. Start the procedure again. Once you have a solid orange Wi-Fi light, reconfigure the printer for wireless connection. Thanks.

WLAN orange light blinking


Wi-Fi base station: Understanding and resolving a blinking amber status light Your Wi-Fi base station status light blinks amber.
Here are some of the more common reasons that the status light may blink amber:
  • The Wi-Fi base station has not yet been configured because it is new.
  • The Wi-Fi base station has been reset.
  • A new firmware update is available for the Wi-Fi base station.
  • No IP address is available for the Wi-Fi base station.
  • A Wi-Fi base station in Extended Mode is out-of-network Wi-Fi range of a primary Wi-Fi base station.
  • The WAN Ethernet cable is unplugged from the Wi-Fi base station.
  • The Wi-Fi base station lacks a path to the Internet (or local router).
  • Internet access may be temporarily unavailable from your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
  • Your AirPort Time Capsule has detected that the internal hard drive has reported a SMART error, and is failing (This requires firmware 7.5.2, and AirPort Utility 5.5.2).
A persistent, blinking, amber status light indicates that your Wi-Fi base station may require your attention.
How to resolve a blinking amber status light alert
Launch AirPort Utility to determine why your Wi-Fi base station status light is blinking amber.
Apple recommends that you use AirPort Utility 5.5.2 for Mac, AirPort Utility 5.5.2 for Windows, or a newer version of AirPort Utility if one is available.
  1. AirPort Utility 5.2 or later opens automatically if your Wi-Fi base station requires your attention. You may also choose to launch AirPort Utility at any time.
    Do not use any version of AirPort Utility earlier than 5.0.
    In Mac OS X, AirPort Utility is located in the Applications > Utilities folder.
    In Microsoft Windows, AirPort Utility can be located by clicking Start > All Programs > AirPort.
    Note: You may also locate and download the latest Wi-Fi base station firmware and software by clicking here.
  2. In the AirPort Utility window, locate your Wi-Fi base station and double-click on it to open the Summary window. Note: If you have more than one Wi-Fi base station, double-click on the icon for the Wi-Fi base station that has the amber circle next to it.
  3. When the Summary window appears, double-click the amber circle to the right of Wi-Fi base station Status to open the Status window.
  4. The Status window lists any conditions that require your attention. Respond to each item until there are no more items listed.
    Important
    : You must reset the Wi-Fi base station using the reset switch to re-enable checking for the conditions you ignored.


  5. Eliminating the blinking, amber status light may require making changes to a specific setting, or putting a checkmark in the "Ignore" checkbox beside any option you don't wish to change. A checkmark simply tells the AirPort that you are aware of the issue and you have chosen to ignore it. For example, you may wish to leave your AirPort open without a password so that anyone can join your wireless network.
  6. Click Update to apply your changes (the Wi-Fi base station will restart).
  7. After the Wi-Fi base station has restarted, the status light should be green and not blinking. If the status light stays amber in color and blinks after the Wi-Fi base station restarts, you may repeat the steps above.

I purchased a new IPOD and I can not access the wifi from my Linksys wireless router.. I reset my Linksys router to try to solve this problem. And at first when the light was amber I was able to have...


Resolution If you know there is a nearby Wi-Fi network, but you are unable to locate it on the Settings > Wi-Fi screen:
  • Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
  • If you are using a personal Wi-Fi network, verify the Wi-Fi router is connected to power and turned on.
  • Wi-Fi networks configured as "closed" or "private" do not broadcast the network name to Wi-Fi devices.
    • Join a "closed" or "private" network by tapping Settings > Wi-Fi > Other and entering the Wi-Fi network name, security, and password.
After joining a Wi-Fi network, if you notice the signal strength is low or intermittent
  • Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
  • Check for any sources of potential interference.
  • Remove any cases or attachments on your device that could interfere with a Wi-Fi signal.
If you are unable to access the Internet while connected
  • If you are using a commercial Wi-Fi network that requires a special login or subscription, see this article for more information.
  • If you are in a location with multiple Wi-Fi networks, verify that you are selecting the correct network.
  • Verify that the Wi-Fi network settings are correct:
    • Tap Settings > Wi-Fi.
    • Locate the Wi-Fi network you are currently using and tap ts1398_2.jpg
      blank.gif
  • You can configure network-specific settings, including IP address, DNS, and Search Domain settings.
  • Use "Forget this Network" to reset settings for this particular Wi-Fi network, including the password. This is also useful if you identify a network issue and want to prevent the device from automatically using this network in the future.
  • Use "Renew Lease" to acquire new IP address, DNS, and Search Domain information from the Wi-Fi network.
  • Note: If the Wi-Fi network uses MAC address filtering, you will need to add the MAC address to the access list for the Wi-Fi router. The MAC address for your device is listed as the Wi-Fi Address in Settings > General > About.
If you are still unable to join a Wi-Fi network, or are unable to access the Internet while connected, try the following
  • Restart the device
    • Hold the power button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the power button to turn it back on.
  • Reset network settings by selecting Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Note: This will reset all network settings, including passwords, VPN, and APN settings.
  • iPhone only: If you continue to experience issues, consider turning off Wi-Fi and using the cellular data connection instead of Wi-Fi.
Additional Information If using a Wi-Fi router at home, refer to your user manual/documentation to assist you with some of these suggestions.
  • Check the manufacturer's website for your Wi-Fi router for firmware or software updates.
  • Verify the Wi-Fi router can broadcast an 802.11b/g signal. If using a 802.11n Wi-Fi router, consult the manual/documentation for how to configure the Wi-Fi router for 802.11b/g compatibility.
  • If you are using multiple WEP keys on your Wi-Fi router, try configuring your Wi-Fi router to use only a single WEP key.
  • Try or resetting (or turning off and then on again) your Wi-Fi router. Note: If your ISP also provides cable or phone service, check with them before attempting this step to avoid interruption of service.
  • Disable wireless encryption or security on the Wi-Fi router to rule out encryption issues. If this resolves the issue, try using a different encryption or security protocol.

Wi fi button


Look carefully on your "Function" keys example, F1, F2, F3 to F12 that are located above your keyboard. On each function keys, there is an icon. One of those is wi-fi. Find which function key has the wi-fi icon then find key to activate those functions. It is called "Fn" key (located in the bottom of your keyboard near "Ctrl" or "Alt"). Now press and hold "Fn" + "F#" then release. This should turn on your wi-fi. On mine, I have wi-fi on "F8" so I would press "Fn" + "F8".
