My Presario f500 has the wireless switch bottom left front. However, I had trouble accessing wireless earlier this year and contacted HP only to find this model has a fault and the guarantee had been extended by 12 months to enable this to be fixed.

A presario that I have has a button on the right side front that is recessed and round. You did not list the model you have and there are MANY models. Mine is an R3000 series.

The button is similar to those on the side for the audio control.

The computer says that my wireless capabilities are turned off


Look on both sides and in the front of the laptop for a switch or button that controls the wireless.

If the wireless switch is turned on then maybe you hit the keystrokes that toggles the wireless On or Off.

Normally to toggle the wireless with keystrokes you have to Press and Hold the FN function key then hit the correct key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the wireless. The correct key will have the wireless icon on it and it may look something like this )))). Or it may be a tower with ))) on it.

Wireless button not working compaq F730US, how acn I fix this issue?


You need to check first if the wireless switch is turn on.If it is on, check the function key for the wireless. Some computers have function key. Sometimes it is combination of fn and f5. Press those keys at the same time and you should see a pop up window and check if the current status is on. If it is on, uninstall/reinstall the wireless driver in device manager. and restart your computer. If this didn't work. You need to do re installation of your operating system.

Wireless adapter has been shut off evidently on Compaq Presario ... is there a function combination that turns it on? Thanks!!!


Reinstall driver of your wireless adapter first. Just to eliminate the possibility of software issues. Check for the wireless switch of your wireless adapter. Usually it is located infront of the laptop or on the side. Make sure that it is in ON position. Look for the icon in the switch that has a computer with wave signal on the side. Thats the indicator that the wireless is in ON position. Lastly, you can use function keys to enable/disable wireless card. You may press Fn + F5 (depends on the keyboard, computer with wave signal on the side) to toggle on/off wireless adapter.

CAN'T FIND WIRELESS NETWORK ADAPTER


You'll have to be a bit more specific on this.
Do you mean you have a wireless adapter (most modern computers do) and it doesn't connect or doesn't show up, then I would suggest looking for the switch that turns it on. Many laptops have a little switch on the case that turns the wireless function on. Others use a soft switch, which is a combination of the Fn key and one of the special function keys.
