    my compaq does the same thing, even when on, the wireless light is amber and does not register as being "on". The computer no longer recognizes the fact that it has wireless capability, the softwear to turn it on and off does not work

I have used the blue fn button and f11 to turn on wireless internet but it still won't connect to the internet and the light on the front wireless one is yellow/green is this correct


Once you turn on the wireless the bottom right hand corner should have an icon for it. Double click on that and it will show you the available wireless networks. Connect to your own network, other networks unless they are from a ecafe or something like that will not work.

If it is Broadband then check if the lights appear to be normal, or the lights are on and you are unsure of what they are normally....Check if Another computer can connect.. If it can then Run the Windows Network Diagnostics by clicking Start - Help & Support - Troubleshooting Tools - Internet Tools - Diagnose Internet Connection.. Check what options are you getting..... Click Start - All Programs - Accessories - Right click on Command Prompt and select Run As Administrator......A Black Window will open and we need to type in ipconfig.. Check the IPV4 Address.... Check if it is a valid IP Address or not...You need to get back to me for the further steps

Wireless switch is amber


By default the wireless adapter is enabled on your HP PC. However there are many ways to disable your wireless adapter. It can happen by turning it off in windows or some application may disable it due to execution errors.

Most of the time, when a wireless adapter is disabled on a machine it is very often because someone has pressed the wirless button by mistake. If it has been pushed by mistake, turn the wireless back on by finding the wirless button on your machine and pressing it. Check for button location on the top of the keyboard or the side or front of the PC. Thanks

Wireless network card


Hi there.
The wireless switch on the front bottom of the laptop, it's suppose to be blue when the button is on the right.
Right click on computer and select manage, go to device manager, and go to Network Adapters, try to see a network adapter called Broadcom, if it doesn't appear, it means that your computer doesn't recognize the wireless card and you may have to reinstall the drivers.
Please let me know how you get on.

Good luck

Wireless switch is amber


Your computer is not detecting the wireless network, that's all. Leave it in an enabled state (even thought it's amber), and try a shutdown and restart.
If not, force it to search for wireless networks. It should detect.
By logging off the internet, what do you mean? Shutting your browser, disabling the wireless device under network connections, switching off the radio on the switch on your computer, or something else?

Sometimes my laptop does not conncet to the internet service home


Is wireless turned on? There is a slider switch on your laptop that turns wireless on and off. If it's on you should see a little blue light, if it's off it's amber-colored.

Next, make sure you're wireless security settings match those on the router.

Do you have a wireless adapter program on your laptop or are you using the windows wireless setup (if you R-click on the wireless icon in your system tray -down by the clock- and you select, "Connect to a Network" you should see available wireless networks. If there is a message that says Windows cannot manage your wireless connection, then you're using a 3rd party wireless manager. You need to find out what it is and if it's running it needs to be configured to work with your router.)

No internet


Hi! Saft question but is the wireless connection switched on? on My Satellite there is a little switch at the front near the clasp the keeps the lid locked, turn it to the right and a little Amber light comes on.
If you are wirelessly connected and using Windows try hovering over the internet connction bars down to the right on your taskbar it should say wireless connections available click on to connect, also if using a secure network you'll need to input the security code for your p.c. to communicate. This should sort it!
Good Luck and a Very Happy New Year to you and your Family!
