Check to see if the wireless adapter has been disabled in the device manager. If it has been turned off there it will stay disabled no matter what you do with the switch.

Best way to get there is by:

  1. Right-click on my computer and select Manage
  2. Select Device Manager on the left hand panel
  3. Select the Network Adapters category on the right panel
  4. Look for your wireless adapter in the list. If it is disabled the right-click and enable.
    If you don't have a wireless card listed then you have a bigger issue and will need to get that repaired.

WHY DOESN`T MY HP,LAPTOP.CONNECT TO WIRELES TRANSMITER.


Make sure you didn't disturb the wireless card inside the laptop. Check the connections for the wireless card antennas (usually a gray wire and black wire). Also some laptops have a little on and off switch, to turn on and off the wireless. Please make yours is on. I've had a few clients with the same problem and turned out the switch was accidentally turned off. Good luck

How to find wireless switch on dell inspiron 6000 laptop running windows XP


Hi there,

There is no physical wireles switch on your laptop. You should however, be able to hold down the "fn" key at bottom left of the keyboard and then hit the F2 key at top left to turn your wireless on or off. If that does not provide the desired effect, then your wireles adapter may be disabled, in which case you should right click on the wireless icon in the bottom right system tray and choose "Repair" or "Enable".

Best of luck to you.

I would first try to get into HP wireless assitant which you can do through Control Panel (Start >> Control Panel or Start >> Settings >> Control Panel). In there you can turn your wireless on and off. Be sure to make sure the wireless switch at the front is turned on also. If the light near the wireless switch still remains orange, then you will need to get the motherboard repaired or replaced as this is a known issue. If you still have warranty, HP will repair this free of charge. Otherwise contact a repair company such as www.revivemylaptop.com

Before sending the notebook to repair, I would suggest you to reinstall the wireless drivers on the notebook. Also update the BIOS and then check for the issue. You can download the wireless drivers from the HP Software and Drivers website for your notebook model. I am not sure of your exact notebook and hence I am unable to provide you the web links to download the drivers.

However, if the issue persists even after updating the drivers, then the issue is clearly due to wireless card and the notebook needs an onsite diagnosis by a service technician which is not feasible through online. If your notebook is under HP warranty, then I would suggest you to contact HP support and send the notebook to them to get it repaired under warranty for free of cost. Incase, if you wish to take the notebook to any authorized service center then they may charge you for the service as they do not honor the warranty provided by HP.

Can't access internet wireles router says connected hp is a vista


If Nothing else changed in the last 2 weeks, such as a new router, or other hardware changes, AND it just started happening, I suggest you do a "system restore" to a date BEFORE the problem started.
This should correct the problem, and if you did any updates or other software installations, you will need to re install them.

Finally, one option prior to system restoring is to turn off the wireless router (unplug it) and then wait a minute. Plug back in. Then turn on your computer. You can try this first if you haven't already..
Good luck..

Where do i switch on the wireless on my laptop, COMPAQ NV9000


Hi,

I was unable to find your model notebook, but most are turned via 3 ways:

1: Wireless Switch on the side or front of your pc.

2. You can do so from the control panel under wireless settings. (XP/Vista)

3. HP/Compaq Assistance software installed on your pc. This can be found by clicking on the start menu, and scrolling until you see something like "Compaq Utilities". Use this to configure and start your wireless network.

Goodluck,
