Go into the wireless configuration and see if the radio is enabled. The switch is for manually enabling and disabling the radio, if the radio has been disabled in the configuration then the switch will not work. The other thing you can do is, uninstall the wireless drivers from the device manager and reboot. The machine will find the wireless and reinstall the drivers. This should get it back up and running. NOTE- the radio is the terminology used for the wireless receiver, since the wireless card works on frequency it is considered a radio.

Wireless switch is broken cannot turn on wireless adapter


Dear Friend,

If the wireless switch broke, you might need a flash light and something very thin and long to turn it back on. Now, if the switch attached to the motherboard broke as well you need to think about getting another motherboard.

You might want to consider and external USB or PCDM wireless card if you cannot turn it on.

Good Luck!

Internet wireless card


It's possible that the wireless driver is not installed or the wireless card is turned off in the bios or defective.

1. Check if the the driver is installed. Go to start. Right click 'My computer'. Left click properties. click hardware. click device manager. If there is a red 'X' on the wireless driver. Right click it and click enable. If there is a question mark on network controller or wireless driver. Click this link and choose the model of your laptop to get the wireless driver. Run the file to install the driver. Restart the computer if instructed then see if it worked.

2. If the light still wont turn on, go to the bios. You can do this by turning the computer off. Turn it on and repeatedly tap F2 right after pressing the power button. You should get a screen where you can change the settings. Click this link and choose your laptop's model and look for the instructions on how to turn on the wireless card in the bios. You may also browse the BIOS screen for that setting. Once you've set it to on, save the changes and restart the computer.

Broadband speed slower with intel pro 2200bg wireless


Is it getting any better if you move closer to the router?
First try to update the driver and see if it works better, if not than there's not really much you can do with it. You can swich to cat5e cable, that will be more than enough, or if you really need wireles speed than consider changeing the wirelesscacd in your laptop.
I suggest you some atheros chip based card, because their signal strength and sensitivity is very good. First figure out what you have, open up the small backpanel of your laptop, if there's two than it could be the bigger one. The card could be Mini PCI or mini PCI-E wichever is similar to your card is the type that you need.
After that go to ebay and search for "atheros mini pci" or "mini pci-e atheros", see description for compatibility, or ask the seller if you are not certain. Delivery usually takes about up to 5 bisness days.
Depanding of the card's exact chip you can download driver from here.
Just check before ordering if there's a driver or not for your OS, because as you can see they don't have drivers for some older chips if you have a relatively new windows like Vista or if the chipset is new in some cases there's no driver for XP
But for most cards there's a working dirver and it really makes a diference after most cards.

To swich the card:
-Download the driver for the new card.
-Uninstall the current wireless driver in windows and shut down the computer.
-Swich the wireless card for the new one.
-Start the system and install the driver.
-Enjoy your new card.
