Look on the laptop case for an on/off switch or slider, to enable/disable the wireless adapter.

Or, hold down the FN key on the keyboard, and press one of the "F" keys that shows a radio-antenna with lightning-bolts, to enable/disable the wireless adapter.

I have HP probook 6450b and I would like to disable the wireless button on laptop. I keep accidentally hit the button which then drops my wireless connection. Do you how this can be done?


The only way to disable it would be to disable all of the buttons. This can be done either by unplugging it from the mother board or disabling the device through device manager.

Wireless not functioning


There should be an indicator LED to show that the wireless device is on. If no light, you need to turn it on. If it's red, the device has failed. Quickest/cheapest fix? Buy and install a USB wireless adapter.

How to repair the wireles switch from a hp pv 9000 notebook


Check to see if the wireless adapter has been disabled in the device manager. If it has been turned off there it will stay disabled no matter what you do with the switch.

Best way to get there is by:
  1. Right-click on my computer and select Manage
  2. Select Device Manager on the left hand panel
  3. Select the Network Adapters category on the right panel
  4. Look for your wireless adapter in the list. If it is disabled the right-click and enable.
    If you don't have a wireless card listed then you have a bigger issue and will need to get that repaired.
