Since the switch is soldered to the motherboard, I would not suggest messing with it, I would get a small usb network adapter and connect that way. The only way to fix that problem is to resolder a new switch. It cannot be bypassed, it is built into the motherboard circuit. The button has to be in the "on" position to be able to be enabled from the device manager because the "On" button turns on the Wireless radio.

There is usually only 1 way to turn on wireless especially if it is switch. Maybe you can use a small screw driver and turn it on but be gentle since its very fragile. Sorry for bad new. Good luck.

I believe that you can turn these functions on and off via the Network Connections that you can access from the control panel.

In Windows XP:
Click on START button
Select Control Panel
Click on Network Connections

In Windows Vista:
Click on START button
Select Control Panel
Select Network and Internet
Select Network and Sharing Center
In left panel, select Manage Network Connections

Once here, you should see your wireless adapter and your bluetooth adapter. If you Right-Click on either connection, a menu will pop up and you can choose to Enable or Disable the connection without the button on the front of your computer.

Hope this helps.

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.
