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.

you might need to download the wireless drivers for your wireless card.
You can check the status of your drivers by going to the device manager of your computer
if your comp operating system is windows Vista: paste this link in your browser address bar and download the drivers.

Presario f730us wireless light stays red and in device manger has nothing about wireless


This is a flaw with Nforce chipset and Broadcom wireless cards. But getting HP to admit to it is another story. Every F700 used on a daily basis will have their wireless fail. Here are the solutions to try and resolve this...
1. Buy and install new wireless card ( has worked for me numerous times. Cheapest solution, $25 BUT may not work)
2. Buy a USB wireless adapter (little bit more money but will definitely get you up and running $50)
3. Replace motherboard (refabed cost around $120 or so. There is a reason so many of these go bad... Thank you hp!)

Other than that don't believe it s software/virus problem as it is a pure bad hardware issue. I am still a fan of Compaq laptops.. Just have to ignore this little bubmle on some engineers work station :)

My Wireless adapter is not shown on my computer .I have A Presario F700 that works perfect except this glich.I have gone to Network and Sharing and it shows my home and work Ethernet connection but NO...


You need to check if your wireless adapter is on by going to device manager and looking for wireless adapter etc,assuming you are using a windows o/s. You also need to check if you have switch on the adapter manually as many laptop provide a button or manual key to put it off for power efficiency reasons..Hope this helps and rate my answer.Thanks

Wireless internet access not working; getiing orange led


Anyone having a wlan/wireless problem with a compaq F730us, please report it to HP corporate headquarters and HP/Compaq. The problem is with the mainboard, its a manufacturer problem. Only HP/Compaq can fix this for free, but we have to let them know that the F700 series is also having the same hardware issues as the f500 and other series. Here is a link to hp website so you can see that hp is aware of the problem, we just need to get the f700's added to the list.

Presario F730US wireless not working


We have the same problem on a Compaq F730 US laptop. There is a massive recall going on right now with HP/Compaq motherboards. It mostly affects the wireless adapter. Do some internet research and look on HP's website and see if your model # is included in the recall. If it's not, it should be! Let HP know about it. There is also a BATTERY RECALL on the exact same model. Now we know why Compaq went out of business!
