All depends on the Model laptop... Most All DV Series HP Laptops have a physical switch that you turn on and off (a slide switch).. It is located on the front, just under the lip of the touchpad on the left side... You can look on the front and both sides for a WiFi switch...

If you do not have a switch.....

You need to use your Function Key Combination..

The Fn Key is located down by your space bar to the left of it...It is your Function Key....

Pressing this and a corresponding F key (F1-F2-F3-F4.. etc...)

Look at the F keys, You will notice Icons as well on the individual keys.. usually in blue or grey color....

When The Fn (Function) Key Is Held Down - You can acces the secondary key options...

You Should See A WiFi Icon on one of them keys...

Press Fn and the "F" Key that has the WiFi icon Together...

Why does my wireless laptop not have a wireless adaptor listed? It appears to not have wireless capability.


HOLD down the FN key on the bottom left of your keyboard & find the key with the blue wireless symbol on it & press it if that doesnt work then your drivers are missing.

No wireless capability


If your model does not have wireless capability, even if you had a switch on the machine, if there is no internal wireless card you can't make this wireless. My suggestion would be to purchase a PCMCIA or USB wireless card that you can load to your system to make this wireless capable.
