Bluetooth peripheral device driver


Sai Ch Krishna,

Depending on the system. The bluetooth would have to have been purchased at point of sale. The wireless and the bluetooth are turned on by a wireless switch on the side of the computer. If needed you can reinstall the drivers. Also, make sure bluetooth is turned on in the bios. Below is more information.
Wireless Switch

Wireless Technology The Latitude D630, D631, and D630c system ships with a wireless feature called the wireless switch. It is located on the left side of the system next to the IEEE 1394 connector. When used in combination with the Dell 38482; Quickset utilities, this switch enables or disables the wireless LAN, wireless WAN, and Bluetooth cards in the system or searches for all wireless networks in range.
To scan for a Wi-Fi wireless LAN, slide and hold the switch in the momentary position for a few seconds. The Wi-Fi Catcher network locator works whether the computer is turned on or off, in Hibernate mode, or in Standby mode, as long as the switch is configured through QuickSet or the BIOS to control Wi-Fi network connections.
Because the Wi-Fi Catcher network locator is disabled and not configured for use when the computer is shipped, it must be enabled and configured through the Dell QuickSet utilities to control Wi-Fi network connections.

Wireless Switch LED Settings
The LED on the wireless switch works even if the system is off. A user can activate the switch and have it scan for networks without going through a complete boot process. The switch can be set to detect for only certain wireless signals, such as WLAN only, WWAN only, Bluetooth only, or any combination of these. This is set in the BIOS under the Wireless section.
The LED indicates the presence of a network as follows:
  • Flashing green - The system is searching for a signal.
  • Green - The system has detected a wireless signal and has good strength.
  • Yellow - The system has detected a wireless signal, but it is moderate to weak in strength.
  • Red - The system failed to detect a wireless signal, or the wireless signal is extremely weak.
Thank You,

Note this has to be setup through the Dell QuickSet utilities for Wi-Fi network connections.

Below listed are the different color indicators for the Wireless Activity Indicator

Green - The system has detected a wireless signal and has good strength.

Hp nc6120 wi-fi problem


Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look onboth sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can togglethe wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN functionkey located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit willhave the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a towerwith the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will displayWireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

My Wi-Fi on Lenova Think Pad T60 is not working. I tried to update the drivers. Still not working.


What is it doing? Still not working could mean a lot of things!!! Is the computer connected to the wireless network? You've got to connect to the network before you can do anything. And most times the problem with connecting to the network is people key the network key or password wrong so the wireless just keeps on polling trying to connect.

Do you have the wireless turned on on the notepad? Sometimes there might be a wireless switch somewhere that you have to turn on. Also most times you can toggle the wireless On and Off by hitting the FN Function key and the corresponding F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. Most times the correct F1 thru F12 key will have a wireless icon signal on it sorta like ))))) or it may show a tower with the signals. Once you find the correct F1 thru F12 key to press then Press and Hold the FN Function key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key. If you look at your screen most times it will let you know if you've toggled the wireless by displaying Wireless On or Wireless Off.

I have a compaq presario F756nr with an Atheros wireless wi-fi card in it. Can I replace the wi-fi card with a Broadcom 802.11 b/g wireless LAN card?


no you cannot replace the built-in wi-fi card...
if you try to change the drivers for atheros wi-fi to Broadcam driver, your wi-fi card will not function anymore.... but you can always install another WI-FI card in your laptop... you can buy a USB Adapter or a Cardbus(PCMCIA) adapter for this purpose...if you want your wi-fi signal strenth and range to be higher, you can opt to buy an adapter which comes under N standard....N standard wi-fi adapters are capable of connecting at a speed of more than 300mbps(practically) to any N standard device like router....

Wi Fi doesn't work. Have compaq 700. Says the


There are many reasons why wireless doesn’t work but lets look at it step by step

How it works is that there’s a card inside your laptop which detects networks “wireless only” that are in your house and near you like neighbours.

The most common mistake is “the button” there is bound to be a button either
On the side, the rear, the front of the laptop or even near the keyboard it usually has
A dot with signal lines that button switch on and off the wireless device so make sure its on and then wait 10 second for the signal to appear.

There is no button? Right then there’s a keyboard shortcut to switch it on and off
You must first press and hold the “fn” button or the function button then find the wireless key which is either “f8” or “f4” it varies from model to another but it always has the wireless logo on it and it is always one of the f keys.

Didn’t help? It could be you’re running multiple utilities to run your wireless, you either have to use windows utility which is normaly in your task bar but if that’s not working then another utility is using it, so find in your programs list “wireless utility” or “belkin utility” which usually does the same.

Didn’t help? Its getting more serious, makesure your driver is installed for the wireless, if you go to the device manager and then to the network area and there makesure your wireless drvice is enabled “no red cross on it” or else if you cant find a wireless device in there then it means your wireless card is faulty and need an expert looking at it.

It is good practice to re-install the wireless driver to fix most issues.

Wireless no longer works


1st Solution:
Check if the wi-fi card is properly installed under Device Manager. Go to Start then look for Control Panel on the right pane. Under Control Panel look for System and Maintenance and then click on Device Manager. Now under Device Manager look for Network Adapters and collapse or click the arrow next to it. Check if your wi-fi adapter is installed(10/100 or 10/1000 is your LAN adapter, wi-fi adapters usually indicates something like 802.11x(could be agn or g or b) or the word "wireless". If you don't see anything I mentioned above that means your computer is unable to detect any wi-fi adapters installed. Know if you found a wi-fi adapter but there is a yellow exclamation or question mark, all you have to do is re-install the drivers for your wi-fi adapter(you can download the drivers on the Compaq website for free.)

2nd Solution:
Check if the wi-fi is disabled or stopped, if you have a bulit in wi-fi adapter on your laptop they have a wi-fi switch on the side or near the function keys(F1, F2, F3 up to F12). Wi-fi button/switch will have a logo or marking of an antenna that has waves coming out of it and there is a LED light that will indicate if its on or off(for Comapaq laptops it's either a blue button at the front, near the function keys or at the front panel on the buttom edge.

If both fails then you may need to contact Compaq for further assistance.

Hope this will help you fixin the wi-fi problems on your laptop.
