    My HPQWA.msi has been disabled and I cannot repair or reinstall

    I have the same problem, i've tried downloading new drivers, new wifi assistants, and i've tried resetting the bios by taking the battery out and pressing the power button thingy.



    this seems to be a widespread HP F500 problem, but i haven't found a software solution to date.



    common symptoms of the problem:



    orange light on wifi led (even when the switch is in "on" mode)

    no wifi adaptor in device manager

    wifi assistant does not work



    i'm sorely tempted to send the damn thing back to hp for fixing, but have ran across a few horror stories of laptops coming back in tatters from HP repair.



    so if anyone has any advice, it would be great to hear from you!

    Same exact thing here..tried everything...actually was about to send it back...but the overseas service representatives and the fee kept me from following through...we all know that the answer to this solution is so much simpler and that they just want our money...but I haven't given up yet!

    I have the same problem. My HPPresario F500 wireless function has just suddenly stopped working. It is about 15 months old & bought in UK although I am living in Spain,so difficult to take back to store. In My PCs control panel,the Wireless assistant is still listed but will not open. I see on HP web sitre they are offering to repair free a whole number of notebooks with this fault even if out of warranty,but my model number is slightly different,it is a GH835 not a GH825 as listed. Help?

Compaq presario f500 wireless not working


Hello, I too had the same problem: wifi card does not exist in the network switch and light orange. I solved it this way: I unscrewed the screws at the memory compartment where it also houses the Wifi card, next is the battery backup of the bios, I pulled gently on the battery connector and I shorted the two pins for 1 minutes, I reconnected the plug closing the compartment and access your PC and Wi-Fi switch has returned the little light blue and WiFi networks are detected. I hope that you too can be solved in this way. Hello Michael

Hi i have compaq presario f500 laptop am unable to connect to wireless network. downloaded drivers still had same problem please help me


There is no simple answer, you will have to follow a procedure to hook things up.
Your wireless access point will have to be setup first, and then you will have to setup your various devices (like your Laptop) too.

If your are doing this all your self, web search for: "wifi connection tutorial"

If you got a "wireless router" from your Internet provider that might have a technical support number you can call to get help.

If you are trying to connect to an existing wifi like "Hotspot" at Starbucks or something you will need some kind of access code/key.
And maybe someone there will be able to help you.
And, or, web search: "How to Connect to a Wi-Fi Hotspot"

Worse comes to worse and you don't know the difference from "Wifi to Elbow" you could probably pay for local technician to come out and set things up for you (typically from $50 to $100 an hour).

If you are setting up your own make sure to get at least WEP (WPA is more secure) so your neighbors can't easily leech your wireless.

Wifi suddenly stopped working on Presario F500. Shows no card in device manager


Hi,

I could not tell what OS, or complete model number you are running. 1.) Please click here and choose your model number. There are three choices for the F500 (CTO, EA, or XX at the top of the list). 2.) On the next screen choose your OS (such as XP). 3.) This will take you to a page to download your driver. Scroll down to Driver - Network and choose the option that has the word driver in it. 4.) Download and run that.

Please let me know if you need any assistance at that point.

Thanks

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.
