Can you describe what software/program you are using to establish the wireless connection? What colour Led is located near the wireless button? Ornage of Blue? It should switch from orange to blue, if it stays orange, the Wireless card is broken. This is a known issue on all HP DV6xxx, DV9xxx but also on allmost all Compaq V6xxx units. And has extended warranty, more info: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN kr Gijs

How do I connect my Compaq Presario 62-231 to a wireless network?


Check the sides and front of the laptop to see if there is a wireless switch to turn on. If so, turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

Turn on wireless


on some compaq laptops the wireless switch is on the side of the laptop! look for a button! also some laptops have a wireless symbol on one of the f keys if you find the symbol on the f keys then you click on the fn and the f key with the wireless symbol at the same time!! that should work!

Wireless will not light up /turn on


I don't mean to be simplistic, but did you flip the switch to turn it on? I don't see a laptop model in your question, but most laptops have a physical switch on the side, or front which physically disables/enables the wireless card.

Wireless Switch


From your description I agree, its probably a damaged switch. I never recommend anyone taking apart a laptop unless they are a mechanical whiz, have experience with laptop disassembly or can afford to break it beyond using. As far as turning the built-in wireless card on without the switch there might be a way. I don?t have a Compaq laptop to experiment with, however, my Dell Latitude BIOS settings has a setting to automatically turn on the wireless card at boot-up. Perhaps yours does too, during your laptops initial boot process get into your BIOS setup menu (press F2 or if that doesn?t work F10 keys). Look for an option relating to your built-in devices or wireless device. My Dell setting is fairly ovious: "Turn on wireless device". If you find a simliar option turn it on, reboot and look for the wireless adaptor. Another option may be to buy an inexpensive UPS wireless adaptor. You can pick them up on Ebay for around $30, not as spiffy as the built-in but probably a lot cheaper than paying a repair shop to fix a three year old laptop. Good luck.
