Depending on your operating system, for me it is Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections and right click on the wireless adapter and enable

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 do I turn on my wireless connection


If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on.
Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks.
This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop.
When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks.
If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off.
Locate the wireless switch on your computer.
It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front.
If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit.
Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position.
The switch will be clearly labeled.
Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on.
If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability.
The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys.
Check your user manual for your computer's key combination.

Cannot connect to internet. status is connected but error says no internet access


Dear Friend,

First, check your wireless connection switch or combination of Function key (Fn) + one of the F's key on top of the keyboard to turn the wireless on. Check the wireless light, if is on it means that your laptop wireless card works. If not, it needs to get check by a PC technician.

Second, if you are using wireless network be sure that you are connecting correctly by using the right network and the right password. Also check for encryption configuration such as WEP or WPA that match on both laptop and wireless switch.

Third, connect your laptop directly with your modem or internet provider box. If you are not getting internet, that's probably the issue and you need to contact them to solve connectivity to the NET.

Good Luck!!!

I am having trouble connecting to the internet because my WLAN has been turned off, how do I turn my wireless back on?


From the HP website:

The power to the wireless network and bluetooth devices is controlled by a switch or button on most computers. It is possible to accidentally bump the button and turn off the wireless service. c02230159.jpg On most computers, there is an LED light that glows blue when the wireless device is turned on and enabled, and glows orange when off or disabled. Some newer models use different a different color scheme. To turn on and enable the wireless device, do the following:
  1. To turn on the wireless device, simply move the switch to the on position. On some computers, the switch is actually a touch point on the panel above the keyboard.
  2. To enable the wireless device, right-click the HP Wireless Assistant (disabled) icon c02228164.gif and select Open Wireless Assistant . Click Turn On . The HP Wireless Assistant (enabled) icon c02228163.gif will display.

My hp lap top wont connect to the internet through the usb the ethernet or wireless and it was working fine until 24 hours ago. I think it may be the network adapter. I re installed the driver for it but...


Try turning off the wireless router fo 30 secs and then power it up again. When the LEDs light up, then boot up the HP laptop.
If this doesn't work, then check the laptop to see if the wireless router issued the HP laptop with an IP address. to do this - click on Start - Run - type cmd and press Enter. This will open a DOS command box, then type ipconfig and press Enter.
If the IP address returns 0.0.0.0 then the wireless router didn't issue the HP with an IP address and either the wireless router is faulty or the wireless card is faulty or it has lost its LAN configuration.
If the wireless router LEDs are all on, try connecting a LAN cable direct to the LAN port on the router and the laptop to see if it connects to the Internet. If it connects then install the latest wireless card driver and configure it with the wireless router's settings.

I was online when I ''lost'' my internet connection. When I run the cursor over the broadcom symbol, the message says''network 2 radio disabled''


I think you have a wireless enable/disable switch, the rightmost in the row above your keyboard, you must have accidentally pressed it. Press it again to turn the wireless network card on, it should come up and connect in a couple of moments.

Where is the Internet button located on NEC 3100 Laptop. I have wireless internet but it will not connect. Have been assisted ny the Internet provider. Looks like the laptop internet button is turned off....


You can manually disable the Wireless connection on mostly all laptops/tablet pc's. Check either on the left or on the bottom. It is a button (Picture: it has a tower with waves coming from it) that you can either slide forward and backward, or a button that you press to turn on and off. Why do they have these on laptops???? Well that's for another time! It will NEVER connect if this button is turned off, or disabled. Again, you have to make sure that it is NOT manually disabled first, sometimes you might not ever know that you "accidentally" turned it off with you fingers, but trust me if you can not connect at all, than that is what is wrong.
