Take this link to your models Updates/Downloads Site. I recommend that you do Any/All Current Updates for your system. That should take care of your issue.

Step 1
Check the front and sides of your laptop. Their may be a switch that you slide to turn your wireless capabilities on or off. If there is a switch, slide it to "on." Your internet should be working.

If there is no switch, move on to step 2.

Step 2
Look up at the top of your keyboard. If there was no switch on the front or sides, there will be a key (in the Function keys, F1, F2, etc) which has a picture of an antenna on it. Push that button.

Your internet should be working. If not, go to step 3.

Step 3
If you found the key with the picture of the antenna/tower on it and pushing it didn't work, sometimes you have to hold down the "Fn" (Function) key while pressing the antenna/tower key.

Your internet should be working!

I have a toshiba satellite p 775D pc. it says the hardware radio switch is off. how do i turn it back on and where is it?


Look on both sides of the computer and in front of the computer for a switch that controls the wireless.

Once you turn it on your wireless should come back. Also once you have the switch turned on there is another way to toggle the wireless on and off by hitting a set of keystrokes. If you Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left part of the keyboard, then hit the key that controls the wireless (F1 thru F12) you can toggle the wireless off and on. The correct F1 thru F12 key will have the wireless icon )))) signal on it or it might have a tower with a the wireless icon )))) signal. Once you Press and Hold the FN key, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key to toggle the wireless a message will probably appear on your screen that says Wireless On or Wireless Off.

Wireless switch is broken cannot turn on wireless adapter


Dear Friend,

If the wireless switch broke, you might need a flash light and something very thin and long to turn it back on. Now, if the switch attached to the motherboard broke as well you need to think about getting another motherboard.

You might want to consider and external USB or PCDM wireless card if you cannot turn it on.

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.

Cannot the wireless internet setup


Hi kschmerer,

I understand that you are not able to setup the Wireless Network Connection in your Computer.
To fix this issue, please make sure that the Physical Wireless Switch on the Computer is turned ON and then try connecting the Computer to the Wirelss Network.

You can locate the Physical Wireless Switch on the front side of the Computer. Please move the switch toward right side to turn it ON.

Once the Physical Wireless Switch is turned ON, please try setting up the Wireless Network Connection.

If you are not able to to connect to Wireless Network Connection after switching on the Physical Wireless LAN Switch, try using the Wireless Switch Setting Utility.

To enable the Wireless Network Connection using the Wireless Device Switch Utility, please double-click the Wireless Device Switch icon on the right corner of the Taskbar. Then in the open Wireless Device Switch window, please click to check the box next to Enable 2.4Ghz Wireless LAN.

This should fix the issue.

The wireless network won't connect


Yes, the switch is at the back.

The LifeBook S is equipped with a Wi-Fi (802.11b) receiver; the antennas are inside a long, black plastic panel that runs along the top edge of the lid. The wireless receiver's on/off switch is on the back of the notebook, where the power switch was located in earlier models. Meanwhile, the power switch has moved to a more convenient location on the side of the unit, next to the FireWire port.

Wireless LAN/ Bluetooth ON/OFF Switch
The switch allows you to turn on and off the Wireless LAN/ Bluetooth communications. Slide the switch to the right to turn it on, or slide the switch to the left to turn it off.
