I have an Asus laptop. Last night I used the hard switch on the side of the laptop to shut off the wireless. About ten minutes later, I switched it back on, but the wireless didn't turn on. I ran the...


Prospector60,

Hello and Thank You for visiting fixya.com

You might be experiencing a hardware issue but first have you tried the following steps?


1. Take out the battery
2. Unplug the unit from the power

Then plug back in the unit and try the switch again?

Have you check your bios to make sure the options for the adapter and switch are enabled.

Its rare but it could be a hardware issue with the switch. You might get creative and open up the laptop and unplug the wireless card from its slot then plug it back in. But be careful and do that at your own risk. If its under warranty have Asus look at it!

Thanks for using fixya.com I hope you find these Very Helpful!

The playstation 3 does not work with certain games saying there is an error on the router (error code: 80710723) How can we open more ports on the router? Thanks for your help


Generally what happens is that progress will stall whilst you are trying to update the firmware or software/games on your PS3, causing it to be corrupted. Your console is then unable to function properly, and you are left trying to "pick up the pieces" as it were. The PS3 error 80710723 is one of these system update errors, and is often experienced by gamers who use wireless connections to update their firmware or games.

So how can you fix PS3 system update error? Here are a few steps you can take to try and fix the 80710723 error code yourself.

  1. In your System Options/Network Settings you need to go and disable a setting called "media server". Doing this has been reported to fix the PS3 system update error in a number of different cases.
  2. If you are using a wireless network connection then switch to a wired connection and attempt to update your console. Wireless connections can have interference, or fail from time to time. Therefore it is better to use a wired Internet connection where possible.
  3. As a last ditch resort you can actually download the update from the Sony website onto your PC, then load that update onto a USB stick and plug it into your PS3 and carry out the update process from there. However, it is best to actually try and fix your connection problems first.

I just got an Acer laptop for Christmas, and last night it wouldn't connect to the internet because the wireless adapter wasn't connected. I am on my desktop right now. I don't know how to fix my adapter....


First make sure the wireless switch is on...it looks like an antenna with radiating lines coming out of it...On your desktop you may need to go to network status to get the ssid and the wep key for the wireless...the wireless will not work if you do not have the proper network id (SSID) or if you have the security set for encryption(WEP,WPA etc..)...To figure this out you can go to network status and tasks...click this then look for the router or the wireless...click on the router...a box will come up with the wireless status....look for a tab marked wireless properties and click it this page should show the SSID for your network and the next page shows you the encryption type and a network security key..also on the SSID page it should have a link to copy the network settings to a usb drive...do this and then take the drive out of the desktop...put it in the laptop...goto network setup on the laptop and follow instructions to set up wireless access on the laptop...

Wireless network adapter won't turn on


Hi there.
It sounds to me that the Atheros wireless card may have gone bad, in some cases this does happen.
Check in the bios to make sure that the wireless adapter is enabled, apart from that i cannot suggest anything else as you have just about troubleshot everything a PC technician would do before coming to the conclusion that its the hardware which is at fault.
If the machine is still under warranty then please take advantage of that, if not then a reputable PC repair shop will be able to fit a new card in the laptop and they will make sure it works before it comes back to you.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

My network says that it can't find the internal wireless adapter


You may have to reboot your PC and try to connect again.
If you have "Viewed all available networks" and tried to connect to your Wireless network but cannot what kind of error message are you getting ?

To quickly find out if you have Internet Connectivity coming in at all from your Internet Service Provider turn off your wireless switch on your laptop and try to connect a cat5 directly from your PC ( connect cat5 cable to what looks like a slightly larger telephone jack on the side or back of your laptop) to the back of your router and see if you browse the internet. You may have to reset your router (unplug and plug)

Laptop connected to WiFi yesterday but now cannot


try rolling back to the previous driver and also uninstalling and reinstalling the last driver update try this last in safe mode (try one thing at a time and test)

check if there's a firmware update for your wireless lynksys router.
although you got an odd problem... because you're mom laptop is fine so it's gotta be on your computer... mmmm.. still worth a try i think.

good luck!! post your findings for follow up!!

The wireless adapter seems to have disappeared.


hey, heres a list of things to try and the things that could be your problem.
check in control panel, system, device manager see if you see the wireless adapter is in there or if there is any tags with unknown device if there is drivers will need reinstalled, that would be your problem if update caused it.

other things to try is check the side of the laptop for the wireless on / off button or switch to double check the the wireless is turned on, there should be a light if it is.

if there is no meantion of wireless device, and you have tried to turn it on from the switch then its a faulty adapter..

Hope this helps

All the best
