Wireless will not fully activate

Hi All,

I have a laptop that I just installed a MiniPCI Wireless 319468-002 HP adapter in. It is an HP Pavillion ze5155 laptop and the part number above is the one I came up with from HP. It activates and works good up until about three or four feet from the router. I also noticed the wireless light in the front of the ze5155 does not come on. Some manuals instruct me to turn on the antenna by pushing the button located under the light in the front but my unit does not have the button. According to the manual the ze5155 that has the button in front uses the HP 319468-001. I believe i bought the right device but cannot get it to fully work. Any suggestions???

OH!!! And I have tried to turn it on in the software to no avail.

Well, your wireless adapter most likely isnt the same brand as the router you are using. I have a simple suggestion. Go to a local reatiler like Office Depot, and buy a wireless notebook card matching the brand of your router. If the problem continues, then simply return the wireless card for a full refund.

Hello Laiman

I would recommend you get your hands on a laptop minipci diagnostic card as it can tell you what is the problem.

Here is one
http://cgi.ebay.com/New-MiniPCI-Diagnostic-Laptop-Computer-Defect-POST-Card_W0QQitemZ380023032837QQihZ025QQcategoryZ1244QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

The card is inserted into the minipci slot in the bottom of the laptop, there is possibly a wireless lan card in place so you would have to remove it first.

If your not intrested in that, tell me do you hear any beeps from the pc? if you see and hear noting then its possible the motherboard would need to be replaced 100-1000usd

also its possible there is a loose connection or faulty ac adapter. try with another adapter or another battery if possible.



If this solution was any help at all please press accept or ask more questions with the other button.And if you need anything else let me know, you can ask me 24/7 by clicking
on the ask me button, I will ansver in most cases within 24hours.


Thanks and good luck!

hi

the T42 does not have WiFi, instead it facilitates internet connection via 16 BIT & 32 Bit PCMCIA slot to install a WiFi card , in order to go on the internet.

For T20 and T22, the MiniPCI adapter may be an Ethernet/Modem combination card. The Daughter Card (T23) is secured with two screws and is located next to the MiniPCI modem adapter.

Where is the wireless radio button on an old HP Pavillion 8705? I just installed a usb wireless adapter and now I'm running the Linksys Add a computer to your wireless network wizard, but the message tells...


On desktops, that's usually software controlled, not via a button.
nce you have the right software installed for the usb adapter for your operating system, there should be an icon in the system tray where you can activate the wireless feature.
I stress for your operating system because I had to get a new adapter once because i couldn't find vista or windows 7 drivers for my old adapter which I used with windows xp.
