    No in fact the problem is wider..
    If I power up the drive from cold, I can feel the drive spinning up and the fan blowing, but the blue rings and the led of the lan slot do not light up..
    If I follow the factory reset procedure, I manage to get the blue circle lit up but the lan does not light up either.. The lan cables are good and work with other devices.. The blue light is steady..but even when i scan the network with a mac address scanner, i see no wb anyway..
    I'm afraid the boot partition is screwed up and I have 300Gb important data stuck into it..

    In fact it seems that it was the lan interface which was out of order (no green led lit). I dismatled the unit, got the drive out on a PC and recovered everything with r-studio in moments..
    Won't buy one of thoses again.. too low MTBF..

Notebook won't connect wifi


Hi, assuming your laptop is switched on.
Above the keyboard on the right side are the three 'Easy buttons'. The one on the left is for the wireless function.

Push this button to activate or deactivate the Wireless LAN. When you activate the wireless LAN function, it will search for a wireless LAN signal automatically (assuming you have the wireless LAN driver installed). Just below the screen on the right side is the Status LED Panel, which show six icons, each with its own LED. The first one on the left indicates Wireless LAN status. When the LED is displaying a green light, it indicates that the system is accessing data from, or retrieving data by wireless LAN. So whenever you press the Easy button, you should see the green status light come on or go off. To repeat, if the light is not on, you need to press the Wireless LAN 'Easy Button'. NOTE! If you can't get the button to come on, you will need to re-install the Wireless LAN driver.

My G Mimo Plus adapter won't pull and IP address. Any suggestions?


Is there a RESET button on the back of the router, if so power it up and press the RESET button until all the LEDs flash and reconfigure the router.
Try a different LAN cable, the other could be faulty
Install the latest LAN and wireless card drivers (this problem sometimes occurs when you install a new router).
Check the LAN and wireless cards are functioning correctly in Device Manager.

Open the DOS cmd window.
Test the NIC - loopback test address - ping 192.0.0.1
Ping the router's IP configuration address
Type ipconfig to see what IP address you get (if any)
Type inconfig /renew all - this will (should) get a new IP address from the router's DHCP

Let me know how things work out.

The bluetooth turns on using FN + F11 it should turn the wireless too but doesn't MSI U100


As per the manual the FN and F11 keys turn on both Bluetooth and Wireless so you need to try it will turn bluetooth and then it will turn on wireless, you can check them by LEDS

Press and hold the Fn button, and then press the F11 button
repeatedly to enable or disable the Wireless LAN or Bluetooth function
recurrently.

Wireless LAN and Bluetooth:
�� Wireless LAN LED indicator glows green when Wireless LAN function is
enabled.
�� Bluetooth LED indicator glows blue when Bluetooth function is enabled.
�� Both LED indicators glow green and blue at the same time when both
functions are enabled.
�� Both LED indicators go out when both functions are disabled.
�� Note: For flight safety consideration, make sure these two LED indicators
go out when you are in flight.

Let me know if you are able to turn the wireless on

Also i will suggest you check in device manager that you wireless adapter is enabled

What does it mean if the link light is out on the surfboard v 5222 digital voice modem?


The link LED on the LAN card and/or on the hub/router is switched on then it indicates that the communication between the the computer and hub/router is established and therefore data can transfer between computers, hun/router, Internet etc.
If the link LED light is out then the fault could be a faulty LAN cable or faulty LAN card in the computer or a faulty hub/router.

LAN led light alway on and flashing


Reset the router:
While the router is powered on press and hold the reset button for 5-10 sec. Release the button and wait until the router boots up (1 min).

If this does not work then you can try this

Try setting it into recovery mode and loading firmware:

Unplug power cable from the router and press the reset button. While holding the reset button plug the power cable in. Continue holding the reset button untill you will see LEDs on the router flashing rapidly.

You should be able to log into the router - you will see a prompt to load firmware. The firmware is available on our WEB site: http://www.dlink.com.au/tech/

Note - suggest you d/l the firmware BEFORE you reset router
