Turn your wireless router off.
Wait 13 seconds.
Turn your wireless router on.
Try again to make a wireless connection.
Find a friend with an iPod Touch or iPhone or laptop,
and see if they can make a wireless connection to your router.
If not, your router is the problem (maybe, it needs to be configured?).

Take your laptop to someplace (public library or Starbucks) that offers "free wireless". Can you connect your laptop to that network? If so, your laptop's hardware is OK.

Enable wireless on Hp probook 6550b


Hi there,
You can enable your wireless lan via quick launch button on the strip , when tapped it will show you blue light when disabled it will show you with orange light, if you see that light is still blue but you are unable to find any wireless network in network and sharing center
simply open network and sharing center > go to change adapter settings right click on wireless network connection and select enable ,
now your wireless should work,
Feel free to contact us if you require more assistance,

My wireless lan doesnt want to work..


Here is a link to a page of possible problems and solutions for a wireless issue. It is on the hp website. The link is:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documentSubCategory?tmp_rule=1303&tmp_task=solveCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3805777

Since I don't know how old this machine is, here is a possible issue. On the new machines along the top of the keyboard area is a set of lights. One is for the wireless operation. It should be a deep blue color. If it is orange or yellow, it means the wireless connection is off. Press on the lighted area and it should change to blue. Now it is on. Retry connecting to the wireless network. HP got too fancy with their buttons/light indicators and fake lots of users out.

Good Luck

Check the touchpad on/off button at the top of the mouse touchpad on the laptop, it's small and can easily get turned off by accident and you will think your mouse has quit working. There is usually an indicator light next to it. I'm not sure but on your laptop I believe it may be a blue light when the button is on and turns orange when switched off.
