Wireless How do I get wireless on

Posted by on

  • stephensmith Jul 08, 2008

    I just got att dsl service with a wireless gateway. The installation directions required that I connect to the gateway via an ethernet cable. Installation seemed to go fine. Problem is that now, I can only connect my Gateway laptop via hardwire with ethernet cable. I cannot even search for available wireless networks. Something in the installation seems to have turned off my wireless system. I can still toggle it on and off, but if I try to do any network/wireless operations, it says it cannot find my hardware. I searched the hardware list for my wireless adapter, and it says it is working properly.????????

Hi there! I would like to know how to unlock internet button from my HP probook. Its button light is orange and I have no access to the internet. I'll glad you anything you can do for me! ...


Not knowing the model of your unit, I respond with a general answer:


Using the wireless controls

You can control the wireless devices in your computer using these features:

?? Wireless button

?? Wireless Assistant software (select models only)

?? HP Connection Manager software (select models only)

?? Operating system controls

Using the wireless button

The computer has a wireless button, one or more wireless devices, and two wireless lights. All of the

wireless devices on your computer are enabled at the factory, so the wireless light is on (blue) when

you turn on the computer.

The wireless light indicates the overall power state of your wireless devices, not the status of individual

devices. If the wireless light is blue, at least one wireless device is on. If the wireless light is amber, all

wireless devices are off.

Because the wireless devices are enabled at the factory, you can use the wireless button to turn on or

turn off the wireless devices simultaneously. Individual wireless devices can be controlled through
Wireless Assistant software (select models only) or through Computer Setup.

I have a new toshiba laptop that I can't get to connect w/o wires to my lynksys...how do I get my laptop to be wireless??

I have a linksys wireless usb card and it is not detecting my secured wireless network after configuring it


We need to know the wireless settings on your wireless access-point/router.

Check if the SSID broadcast is enabled on the wireless access-point. If it is disabled, then you have to manually add the SSID to the wireless adapter and make sure the wireless security such as WEP or WPA keys are correct.

You may also enable SSID broadcast so that the wireless adapter will detect your wireless network.

Also, you may try to change the wireless channel to 6 or 11.

Wireless connection wont work


To check if the wireless card is bad or OK.
Go to Control Panel - Network Connections - Is the wireless network connection listed and if so is there a red X on this connection?
If so, right click on the wireless and click Repair - this may fix your problem, it forces the wireless router to issue the wireless card with a new IP address.
If it doesn't fix the problem then go to Control Panel - System - Hardware tab - Device Manager - scroll down to Network Adapters and expand and check your wireless card, is it Working and Enabled?
If has a yellow ? against it or not working then reinstall the wireless card driver.
If the wireless card is built-in check the BIOS to see if the wireless card is enabled, if not enable the wireless card and repeat the above steps.
If this doesn't fix your problem then the wireless card is faulty and you need a new wireless card. You can get a PCMCIA wireless card to replace the faulty wireless card. If the wireless card is built-in then disable the faulty wireless card in the BIOS before you install the new wireless card.
