Reinstall driver of your wireless adapter first. Just to eliminate the possibility of software issues. Check for the wireless switch of your wireless adapter. Usually it is located infront of the laptop or on the side. Make sure that it is in ON position. Look for the icon in the switch that has a computer with wave signal on the side. Thats the indicator that the wireless is in ON position. Lastly, you can use function keys to enable/disable wireless card. You may press Fn + F5 (depends on the keyboard, computer with wave signal on the side) to toggle on/off wireless adapter.

Wireless on my compaq c60 is disabled but i cant find a switch to enable it. Can i use function keys and if so which?


I am unable to find a photo of your laptop's keyboard, so I cannot be certain which function key will enable your wireless adapter.

However, most laptops are very similar, so this solution should work for your problem.

1) Locate the secondary function key (probably labeled "FN") on your keyboard.
2) Locate the key which controls your wireless adapter as a secondary function. It will have the following image on the key: http://cdnsupport.gateway.com/s/Mobile/2007/Phantom/WirelessIcon.gif
3) While holding the FN key, press the wireless key
4) Your wireless adapter is now enabled. If you are still having wireless issues, the problem was not that the hardware wireless adapter was disabled.

Wireless button not working compaq F730US, how acn I fix this issue?


You need to check first if the wireless switch is turn on.If it is on, check the function key for the wireless. Some computers have function key. Sometimes it is combination of fn and f5. Press those keys at the same time and you should see a pop up window and check if the current status is on. If it is on, uninstall/reinstall the wireless driver in device manager. and restart your computer. If this didn't work. You need to do re installation of your operating system.

Do the following :

  2. Try clicking the button activating the wireless card.
  3. Reinstall wireless card drivers, select drivers from Compaq Presario V6205NR Notebook PC
  4. If all that did not work, then the internal adapter is faulty. Buy an external wlan adapter:WLAN Adapter WL-167G-£12.90 new

CAN'T FIND WIRELESS NETWORK ADAPTER


You'll have to be a bit more specific on this.
Do you mean you have a wireless adapter (most modern computers do) and it doesn't connect or doesn't show up, then I would suggest looking for the switch that turns it on. Many laptops have a little switch on the case that turns the wireless function on. Others use a soft switch, which is a combination of the Fn key and one of the special function keys.

I have a compaq presario laptop. I am told I can turn on the wireless capability by using a switch or a function key combination. I have no switch; please whaty function key combination should I use?


A presario that I have has a button on the right side front that is recessed and round. You did not list the model you have and there are MANY models. Mine is an R3000 series.

The button is similar to those on the side for the audio control.

I have COMPAQ PRESARIO F30US the wireless assistant is not workin


First check to make sure that you're wireless internet is turned on. Sometimes there is a button to push above the keyboard and others it is an FN key combination. If that does not work then go into Device Manager. Look for your wireless adapter, if there is a yellow! or a Red X, then right click on it and update driver. Finally, in Device manager right click on your wireless adapter and do a driver rollback. This will uninstall the new driver and give back your old one, if your old one was working. Repost after you tryed those three options.
