Wireless button quit working my hp 550 laptop.

Question:
Wireless button quit working my hp 550 laptop. I've checked the and made sure internally they are turned on but cannot get my button to turn it on and look for connection via wireless. It was working and then a couple days ago, turned computer on and can't get it to work. I've searched for driver's to download but not 100% sure as to which one and how to do if this is the problem.
Response:
the best the belt is download the driver to update the driver it will work. You go to start button, click on run. type restore, enter, restore your system back to previous day that u know that the wireless is functioning well. it will b ok. But this option only work on xp os system

Question to Response:
I have done the restore thing but of course this has not worked because my system uses Vista as its os system. What do I do now?

Wireless adaptor broken!?


Alot of times you can go into the properties of your wireless card and clear from the list all the access points you have connected to recently and in the past and it will help.Also check to be sure the wireless card is turned on.I've found that internal wireless cards tend to fail after a while due to heat and use.I would replace the card if clearing it of it's memory doesn't work.Also check to make sure that both antenna's are connected properly to the card in case they came loose.I tend to think the card is bad though.

Wireless quit working on Hp PV9720 laptop. Wireless button is on (and light is blue indicating it is on).


Turn your wireless router off.
Wait 13 seconds.
Turn your wireless router on.
Try again to make a wireless connection.
Find a friend with an iPod Touch or iPhone or laptop,
and see if they can make a wireless connection to your router.
If not, your router is the problem (maybe, it needs to be configured?).

Take your laptop to someplace (public library or Starbucks) that offers "free wireless". Can you connect your laptop to that network? If so, your laptop's hardware is OK.

HP 550 - Unable to detect just a particular wireless network


Given all the circumstances, I can only guess that, for some inexplicable, apparant reason, your network card in your computer is the culprit. Try to get a friend who has the same model to swap cards with you, then you'll know for sure. The other problem could be something to do with the signal and some slight anomoly that is causing your card a problem in detecting it. A communications signal is complicated, and some wireless modems have better circuitry than others, depending on the model. But no matter how we speculate, this is just one of those Twilight Zone enigmas! Best of luck- tricky problem, for sure.

My Hp-g60 laptop wireless button is not working... I can't turn on the Wifi connection... I'm using a Vista OS... any tips of how to fix this problem or how to turn the wifi on in another way... =)


I think this problem is not the button but the wireless device itself. I recently got Windows updates in Aug of 2009 and the wireless quit working. I am trying to reload now. I have seen several posts saying maybe .Net Framework 3.5 may cause the problem...I agree because after rebooting the HP Wireless Assistant couldn't start because of an error in .Net Framework 2.x. The reason I am reloading is because system recovery didn't solve my problem. This is a BRAND NEW PC! The customer hasn't had it for a day yet. Pretty embarrasing that they bring it to get anti-virus and I break the wireless, lol.

Got a hp laptop with wireless on it the wireless has just stopet working i have to use a usb adapter so that i can go on the internet.can you tell me how to get my wirelss back.thank you.


does the non working wireless card still show up in the device manager?
if so does it show up as installed or with error?

if not is it enabled in the bios?

Also i have seen people accidently turn off the internal wireless card by pressing the little button on the laptop without realizing it or on some laptops the internal card can be turned on and off with function key combination..

On some models when you turn off the internal wireless card with the litttle switch the card will still show up in the device manager as installed and look ok but will not find any networks at all...
and right clicking on the icon and selecting enable radio does nothing untill you phisically turn it on with the little switch

there should be some sort of light or indicator somewhere on the laptop that lights up when the wireless is on..

what model HP laptop do you have?
