Enable HP Wireless Assistant - WYLAN

I have a Compaq Presario Notebook F572US. I use my wife's router to connect to the internet. Occasionally the WYLAN becomes Disabled. What steps can I take to Enable the WYLAN? I am running Windows Vista Home Premium.

Thank you for any help you can give.

    Thank you Daibras for your solution but it did not work.

    After I clicked on Network Connections and got to Local Area Connections, the following message was below: Network cable unplugged. Not sure what this means because I have an old laptop that uses a card to pick up the signal from the router at my wife's PC and there is no problem with an internet connection.

    On the front of my notebook there is the wireless symbol with an amber light. When it works it is blue. To the left of the amber light is a button with vertical ribbing that you can slide to the left or to the right. It is normally in the right position close to the amber light. When I slide it to the left (1/8 inch) nothing happens. I do not know where this slide should be positioned.
    Is it possible my problem has something to do with updating drivers? I am so frustrated and there is no one in my small town in Mexico who can fix it. Thank you so much for all suggestions.

It sounds like your WiFi switch was somehow shut off.

hpweb_1-2_minus.gif Wireless device is turned off or disabled The power to the wireless network and Bluetooth devices is controlled by a switch or button on most computers. It is possible to accidentally bump the button and turn off the wireless service. c02230159.jpg On most computers, there is an LED light that glows blue when the wireless device is turned on and enabled, and glows orange when off or disabled. Some newer models use different a different color scheme, see the user guide for more information. To turn on and enable the wireless device, do the following:
  1. To turn on the wireless device, simply move the switch to the on position. On some computers, the switch is actually a touch point on the panel above the keyboard.
  2. To enable the wireless device, right-click the HP Wireless Assistant (disabled) icon c02448899.jpg and select Open Wireless Assistant . Click Turn On . The HP Wireless Assistant (enabled) icon c02448900.jpg will display.

Compaq HP Presario F572US just turned off.


Remove the battery and plug laptop power into the wall (or power strip).
Turn ON laptop without battery.
It should start.
After Windows has settled, put battery back in and let it charge up.

Hope this helps!

Wireless internet connection problem


You need to reinstall the wireless driver for your model laptop which you can find at the hp/compaq website. Just click on the link for support and provide information on the model of your laptop and you will be redirected to the proper web page that contains all the drivers for your particular laptop. I did this when my internal wifi did not respond when I pressed the wifi button. After installing the driver everything worked great.
