I have had this situation twice before, it may need to be enabled in the bios so on boot up press F2 or Del depending on bios and look on peripherals menu. If not there look for wireless lan, and I will bet that the option to enable or dissable is greyed out. if so; if it's new take it back to supplier as after 2 hours of phone calls to HP doing everything i did myself hours previously, they could not remedy the problem, hence 2 notebooks were returned to pc world for a refund.

A number of possible fixes come to mind. First access hardware list in control panel under system, then click on device manager, then device manager, then look down the list to network adaptors. Opening list should indicate network (wireless card). If not refresh list. If no luck, or unknown card shows up, hit update driver. If no listing at all, try shutting machine down, removing card from under cover from base of machine, restarting machine without it. After waiting for machine to settle, shut down again, re-instate card and restart. The card should be seen and seek driver under windows new device setup screen. If still no good, card or slot (PCI) or both could be crook. PCI slot failure will mean a new mother board, unless you alternate to a PCMCIA card (wireless) or the same in a USB device. All else fails take it to a tech, or more to the point, if under warranty from HP (or extended) as its a relatively new machine, DONT TOUCH and ring HP or take to a service centre.

Wireless antenna or wireless router

Did your ISP Boingo supply you with a DSL or cable modem with a built-in wireless router? If only a DSL or cable modem is supplied and you wish to connect to the Internet by wireless then you need to connect a wireless router to this DSL or cable modem.

You can connect to the Internet using a LAN cable from your laptop to the DSL or cable modem.
If your laptop as a built-in wireless card you can to the Internet via the wireless router.
If you laptop does not have a built-in wireless card then you can install a PCMCIA wireless card into the card slot of your laptop to the Internet via a wireless connection.

Laptop wireless card problem. I bought a used computer. I've never had a laptop with a wireless card. It worked fine. Two lights blinked on the card. All of the sudden i couldn't get the internet....

If you do not have a wireless router which is connected to your Internet servce provider and now your laptop does not connect to the Internet then, you could have connected to your neighbour's Internet connection.
The reason why you cannot now get Internet access is, this neighbour has discovered unauthorized access to their unprotected wireless connection and has taken security steps to prevent further unauthorized access.

If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then - To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSL or cable modem.

How can i setup a wireless connection on my laptop

Hi,

Depending on the model etc of your laptop, some have built in wireless adapters others don't so you need to buy a wireless adapter card so that you are able to connect to the internet.

Also you will need a network which has wireless built in if at home for you to connect to the internet, through the wireless adapter on your laptop.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need more information.

Thanks

Definition of the sound card, internet lan & wireless lan

The definition of the sound card, is a chipset integrated into the main board of your laptop, in order to provide sound to your built-in speakers, or to the headphone jack on your laptop. Internet LAN (or Local Area Network) is a port located either on the side or the rear of your computer, where you would plug in a Cable/DSL High-Speed Internet connection, using an Ethernet cable (also called RJ-45). Wireless LAN is the same idea, only instead of using an ethernet cable to provide you access to the internet, it uses a wireless signal or radio frequency, to connect to a wireless access point (usually provided by a wireless router in the area). More in-depth information can be found at the following links:

WIRELESS NOTEBOOK DONT WORK

1394 is not wireless, that is what the computer calls it's firewire port. Maybe your wireless card is off, most laptops have a tiny on/off switch for the wireless card somewhere around its front edge.

From what I've found out on the internet I don't think all NX9010s have built in wireless, you may have to buy a wireless card thatyou can put in the card slot or a usb wireless card.
