My HP Compaq 6730b laptop wifi suddenly stopped working. The wifi switch turns blue when I switch it on but when I try to connect to a network, I don't see any connections. I do a diagnostics and it says wireless switched off, meanwhile it is on! I tried installing a new driver but same story, please help. My OS is windows 7 (32bits). Thanks

2) On top of the Device Manager box next to file click > scan for changes.

After its done close all dialog boxes.

    Thanks Mark Lewis, I did as you suggested but a pop up said "Device software was not successfully installed". When I clicked on this message; Driver Software Installation, Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN displayed "Ready to use" but the problem persist, still telling me to turn on wireless capability even when it's on. What do you think?

Most of this model come with a B wifi card. You need to get you a wireless G card. Go to this link to download the drive and utility software for the G card. http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=1637

I want to activate wifi on my laptop Model: HP COMPAQ HSTNN-A25C. Please advise the process.


Hello,
The wifi switch will be in one of the following places. It may have a wifi symbol which will look like radio waves. I hope this helps.

  1. Check the front edge of the laptop for a switch that goes from left to right. The light will normally go from Orange to Blue
  2. check the side edges for the wifi switch
  3. Look at the top of the Keyboard above the number keys to the right. you may find a button there.
  4. Or you can manually turn on your wifi.Click the "Start" button, and click "Control Panel." Click "Network and Internet." Click "Change adapter settings." Right-click on "Wireless Network Connection," and select "Enable" from the menu.
  5. Once you see the wifi symbol at the bottom right of the Laptop screen (near the date/time) click on it and choose your wireless network.

I don't see any WiFi connections in my computer (Windows 7) and WiFi indicator infront of laptop does not lit. Troubleshoot shows "Wireless capability is turned off". The switch in front of PC is turned on...


First, turn the wireless switch OFF and switch it back ON
(make sure sure that there is a BLUE light on the wireless indicator)
then press Fn+F5 (this will ENABLE the wireless capability of your computer)

Broadcom 802.11g stop recognizing any wireless on my gateway laptop


is this on a laptop? check that the wifi is not turned off. some laptops have a switch on the side or perhaps a Fn key (blue icons on the F keys) that disables the wifi on the pc. try Fn+F2 or Fn +F5 (look a the F keys for a blue wifi icon)

post back results and the system you are using inc the OS so I may assist in greater detail if required
