SOURCE: Wi-Fi problem Toshiba A15-S157 laptop

If your laptop has a di-fi switch/button chances are you have one integrated on the main board of the laptop, check if the wi-fi adapter is installed properly by going to the Device Manager and check Network Adapters normally a wi-fi adapter will show up if not check if you have any devices listed under network devices(Network Controller, Ethernet Controller). Now if the wi-fi card is installed and the status on the Device Manager say's that it's working properly, you may now check your laptop for a 3rd pary wi-fi utility/application that manages your connection look for it on the System Tray on the lower right hand side near the clock or go to all programs and look for any WLAN utility, when you open the utility make sure the wi-fi radio is turned on or enabled.

SOURCE: my d-link 2640t wireless router suddenly no Wi-Fi

This one can be one of two things.

If you have a digital multimeter, check the power connection and make sure that it's not to high (eg. 7.5 V DC should read no more than 7.8 V for it to work properly)

Otherwise, just reset the router. I have a feeling it is the first one.

Once it reaches to 130% above of what's rated, it can fry your network adapter in your computer and possibly more damage if it's wired.

SOURCE: My wi-fi keeps randomly disconnecting but is not bc a weak signal

Your card is ok. There is interference between the router and your computer.

1. The router or the PC may be "hidden" behind a metal cabinet, refrigerator, etc.
2. Move router higher
3. Microwave ovens and some cordless phones (not cellphones) that use 2.4GHz will interfere with the 2.4GHz WiFi signal.
4. Point the router antennas in-line with the direction of the PC.
5. Move the router closer to the PC.

It sounds like you have an electronic problem, it is most likely a faulty scanner or logic board. although a faulty print head can take out a logic.check that there is no burning smell or damage evident on the underside of the print head before trying a logic.
the machine will require disassembly and parts replacement.

this is all i could find out..
The way to fix this is to unplug both your modem and your router (you may have one piece of equipment that acts as both) and wait a full 60 seconds. Then plug them both in again and wait for all the lights to stop flashing. At that point, try to reconnect to the Internet again.22 Mar 2017

Wireless no longer works


1st Solution:
Check if the wi-fi card is properly installed under Device Manager. Go to Start then look for Control Panel on the right pane. Under Control Panel look for System and Maintenance and then click on Device Manager. Now under Device Manager look for Network Adapters and collapse or click the arrow next to it. Check if your wi-fi adapter is installed(10/100 or 10/1000 is your LAN adapter, wi-fi adapters usually indicates something like 802.11x(could be agn or g or b) or the word "wireless". If you don't see anything I mentioned above that means your computer is unable to detect any wi-fi adapters installed. Know if you found a wi-fi adapter but there is a yellow exclamation or question mark, all you have to do is re-install the drivers for your wi-fi adapter(you can download the drivers on the Compaq website for free.)

2nd Solution:
Check if the wi-fi is disabled or stopped, if you have a bulit in wi-fi adapter on your laptop they have a wi-fi switch on the side or near the function keys(F1, F2, F3 up to F12). Wi-fi button/switch will have a logo or marking of an antenna that has waves coming out of it and there is a LED light that will indicate if its on or off(for Comapaq laptops it's either a blue button at the front, near the function keys or at the front panel on the buttom edge.

If both fails then you may need to contact Compaq for further assistance.

Hope this will help you fixin the wi-fi problems on your laptop.

Regards
