Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have a hp G6000 laptop & a I have wireless in my home which works perfectly fine on my brother's laptop & my Dad's desktop computer but for some reason my laptop will not detect the wireless at all, there is a switch on the front of the laptop which has a orange light constantly on whenever I have the laptop on but I think it might have to be blue when it is on properly but I'm not certain but I think this may be why the laptop wont detect the wireless in my home. If anyone could give me any help or guidance with this so that I can connect to the internet on my laptop I would be very appreciated! Thanks! Oh & by the way I have tried turning the switch for the wireless on my laptop "on' & 'off' (the thing is it doesn't display which way is 'on' or which way is 'off' so I don't really know which way to turn it but either way I turn it it still just shows an orange light & it still wont detect my wireless! Also I have tried many times switching the router on & off loads of times but that doesn't make any difference either! PLEASE HELP!! Yours sincerely, Chris

From the HP book: (7) Wireless switch Turns the wireless feature on or off, but does not create a wireless connection. NOTE: To establish a wireless connection, a wireless network must already be set up. (8) Wireless light ? Blue: An integrated wireless device, such as a WLAN device and/or a Bluetooth® device, is turned on. ? Amber: An integrated wireless device is turned off.
For some reason, yours is turned off.
Look at this site and see if it works for you.

Hi, Thanks for using fixya.

When you connect it to wireless make sure you go into control panel / network view your connection right click on local area network connection choose disable then connect to your wireless connection. Right click your wireless icon by your clock choose connect to wireless network or view available local wireless connection.

Wireless switch orange all the time on hp g6000 cant connect to web, was working perfect just stopped,


Hi
1 thing for you to check first.Go to Start-Control Panel-System-Hardware-Device Manager.Look down at the Network Adapters category and see if your device somehow became disabled,and if so right click on it and select enable.If it's x'd out,see if it tells you there is a driver problem.
Next,if you still have a connection to a desktop and are using a wireless router,try going to the Router's website and go through the wireless and network setup processes again.And see if that helps.
If you can't do anything there,the cheapest fix is to get a USB network dongle.You can run your laptop connection through 1,and you really have no other option if your onboard adapter has gone bad,other than take it to a shop,and that will be far more expensive.
If this helps,would you please rate my post?
Let me know what happens.

Laptop wont connect to wireless network but desktop is fine.


Perhaps, it just needed a new IP address. Simply rebooting the computer and resetting the IP Address of the computer took care of the issue.

That sounds like symptoms of Manufacturer & Windows drivers conflicting. Try uninstall the Manufacturer Drivers and let the windows ones do the work, and see how that goes down.

Wireless does not work my computer does not read wireless base station


turn on the wireless button ON...if still the problem exists then re-install the wifi driver from the motherboard drivers & utilities cd/dvd given by your compaq distributor. Then you will find your wireless connection working properly.

HP G6000 laptop wont start


Extract your battery from your laptop for 12 min, then start your computer using your power cable (don't use your battery), if not try pressing F2 rapidly when opening, after you open your operating system try changing your graphics card drivers.

The reason it shows the compaq logo is because that is the motherboard you have installed. HP is just your case if I am reading your question properly. Did you custom build this? Which processor is in it? Probably the wireless card isn't being recognized because of your 64 bit operating system. Windows 7 has a lot of hardware driver problems right now.

make sure your router is set to web key or wap key, make sure it is the same make sure the wireless is enabled on your laptop, make sure your ip adress on both machines are in the same route and the same network name home or workgroup
