Compaq f730 wireless just quit - orange light stays on

The computer won't do anything "wireless" - it won't access the wireless assistant, installed a external USB adapter and still no wireless. Now, I can't even uninstall the adapter.

One of the simplest things to do if you have this problem is uninstall the HP wireless assistant and re-install it from the HP website. Try the link http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-48908-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en I had the same problem. My wireless suddenly stopped working and the LED indicator for wireless stayed orange no matter what. HP wireless assistant refused to start from any location. I tried updating the drivers, using a system restore from a restore point and what not. I found this solution somewhere online and did it. It miraculously worked for me. Please let me know if this solution helped you.

Hi there! I would like to know how to unlock internet button from my HP probook. Its button light is orange and I have no access to the internet. I'll glad you anything you can do for me! ...


Not knowing the model of your unit, I respond with a general answer:


Using the wireless controls

You can control the wireless devices in your computer using these features:

?? Wireless button

?? Wireless Assistant software (select models only)

?? HP Connection Manager software (select models only)

?? Operating system controls

Using the wireless button

The computer has a wireless button, one or more wireless devices, and two wireless lights. All of the

wireless devices on your computer are enabled at the factory, so the wireless light is on (blue) when

you turn on the computer.

The wireless light indicates the overall power state of your wireless devices, not the status of individual

devices. If the wireless light is blue, at least one wireless device is on. If the wireless light is amber, all

wireless devices are off.

Because the wireless devices are enabled at the factory, you can use the wireless button to turn on or

turn off the wireless devices simultaneously. Individual wireless devices can be controlled through
Wireless Assistant software (select models only) or through Computer Setup.

My wireless assistant has stopped working and the light stays orange


I had the exact same problem...and the wireless adapter was not visible under device manager. The light stayed orange with the switch in either the on or off position. I did all the whole driver update thing and eventually replaced the wireless adapter but no change. Finally I went into the BIOS (F10 on startup) and reset the bios configuration to the default settings EXIT>LOAD SETUP DEFAULTS). It has worked perfectly ever since.

Wireless is not working light is on but orange. even wireless usb adapter will not work


I would start by installing the drivers first, and then restarting the computer. Make sure that all computers in the same network are having access to the internet, if they do, it's absolutely the wireless driver.

If that also doesn't help, it is possible that the card has a malfunction. Try also plugging the laptop to a wired connection to the internet. Again, if that works, it means that you should install the driver again
