Re: Wireless switch cannot turn on the intel 2200 agb...
*Assuming that the computer is a windows XP Operated.
Click on start => run => Services = Ok.
On the services window => check the status of the wireless zero Configuration => try switching it 'on' or switch it off and then switch it 'on'. If that does not resolve the issue then it could be hardware failure.

Wi-Fi card can be considered broken only if its not able to scan for any available networks. Also, do check in the device manager of the computer. Check for the device status of this wireless adapter there. If its properly installed, etc., it should say, "This device is working properly". There is also a fix for other error messages. Regarding hardware breakage, we cannot come to a conclusion so easily as we have all these things to check. The case may be little complicated as its an in-built wireless card. We cannot even remove it and try on a different computer.
First make sure that wi fi switch of your laptop is turn on. Then check that wi fi netowkr adapter driver is installed perfect and enable. Go to device manager and enable wi fi adapter. For check device manager right click on my computer icon then click on property then hardware ->device manager. Then you see all driver list. Then enable wi fi . Also right click on my computer places icon then go to proeprty then you can see your network adapter right click on wi fi adapter then click on "view available wi fi networks." then connect your wi fi . Let me know if you need more assistance.Thanks.

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.)
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.
