No, this icon with the nine indicates Num Lock is on, which is normal.

There's a lot of possible reasons for not being able to connect to wireless networks.
Have you been able to connect before? If yes, have you changed anything (e.g. installed software) lately?
Otherwise, you could check Network settings from the control panel, to see if the wireless adapter is installed and on.

For solving this problem you need to give some more information: what is it you're not able to do? Can you see wireless networks, but not connect, of can't you even see any wireless networks...

Notebook won't connect wifi


Hi, assuming your laptop is switched on.
Above the keyboard on the right side are the three 'Easy buttons'. The one on the left is for the wireless function.

Push this button to activate or deactivate the Wireless LAN. When you activate the wireless LAN function, it will search for a wireless LAN signal automatically (assuming you have the wireless LAN driver installed). Just below the screen on the right side is the Status LED Panel, which show six icons, each with its own LED. The first one on the left indicates Wireless LAN status. When the LED is displaying a green light, it indicates that the system is accessing data from, or retrieving data by wireless LAN. So whenever you press the Easy button, you should see the green status light come on or go off. To repeat, if the light is not on, you need to press the Wireless LAN 'Easy Button'. NOTE! If you can't get the button to come on, you will need to re-install the Wireless LAN driver.

Would like to see keyboard is connected on computer


If you'd like to check if it's connected, go into System Preferences, then Bluetooth. It will show you what devices are connected there.
There is also a checkmark box at the bottom of the window where you can choose to have the Bluetooth status show up next to the clock at the top of your screen.

Keyboard loses connection to computer


Is it a usb, ps2 or wireless keyboard? your keyboard doesn't require a driver since it is a plug and play device.

If you're using a usb or wireless keyboard, then might as well update the chipset driver of your computer. If updating the chipset driver fails, they try your computer on a difference computer to see if there's a problem with your keyboard already. If another keyboard works fine with your computer then it means to say that the computer is working fine.

If you're using a wireless keyboard, changing the battery helps.

THE WINOWS STARTUP SHOWS ON SCREEN ON/OFF BUTTON IS BLUE


Is your keyboard also wireless? Check batteries on all wireless devices. If batteries are fine, restart your computer (hold down your power button until your computer shuts down unless you have a reset button) and then try unplugging and plugging back in your wireless receiver, then hit your connect buttons starting with your keyboard followed by your mouse.
