Please make sure that youre wireless adapter is on to begin with. I say this as a precautionary measure cause most of the time, i see many cases at work with this simple mistake done. If there is a hardware swich, make sure it's on. IF Hardware switch is on, make sure wireless connection is enables. This can be checked if you go to Control panel>network conenctions>wireless lan (see if it's shaded or faded grey. That means it is not enabled).

Once you have done this, and it shoes that the wirelss LAN connection is up and running, do what S_n_A_k_E said. Check if the driver for the wireless adapter is having problems and reinstall if necessary. If even that is not the issue, then make sure that you havent accidentally MAC locked your notebook out of the network (yes, i've seen this happen before as well :D)

Alternatively, you might wanna check out if you're behind a systen firewall that doesnt allow connectivity or if in a coporate enviroment, make sure that your in your proper VLAN zone. Hope this helps.

WLAN is turned OFF on my Presario CQ62-225NR?


Try going to device manager and check your wifi network adapter is installed and working properly. you can also try updating the driver from here. From control panel choose hardware and sound and then device manager under devices and printers. Expand the network adapters menu and look for the wifi adapter, right click for options.

My compaq presario f500 wlan disappeared, what now?


Restart your computer, then right-click on my computer-go to properties, ---locate and click on device manager, when you get to device manager page, locate your wireless network adapter under network adapters and right-click on it, then select uninstall, after this, go to actions on that same page, and select scan for hardware changes, this would re-install and solve your WLAN adapter problem.
Another thing you can just do is, after uninstalling it, just restart your system. At the next system restart, your PC will automatically re-install it and fix the problem.
Hope it helps you out!
Goodluck!

WLAN Driver


Here is the download page at HP for your computer. Pick your operating system from the drop-down list and you can get the drivers you need for the internal wireless adapter.

If you are trying to replace your built-in adapter for some reason, any USB wireless adapter should be compatible with the computer. You just need to make sure it will work with your operating system.

If this doesn't help, please post a followup comment with more information about the problem you are having and I'll try to do more for you.

WLAN device driver loading Issue


Sounds like the device driver to the wireless card is corrupt. Click on start>right click on My Computer>Properties>Hardware tab then Device manager. Click on the "+" sign next to your wireless Network adapter. Then right-click on your network adapter, click on Update driver. The system will automatically look for the new driver and download it. If there is no new driver then go to the manufactureres website. All of the drivers are there. Find your computer and download the driver.

Get new drivers for the lan card from the lan cards web site...its not the XP OS problem...it is a problem with the drivers for the card...the one that XP is assigning to it is not an exact match.
