IPaq 6365 WiFi Wont Shut Off

Hello, Evertime I do a soft re-boot, on completion, the WiFi indicator light starts flashing and the Wifi button turns amber (brown). I try to tap the button but it goes grey for a few moments and then back to amber and I cannot turn it off. The only way I can turn it off is if, by chance, I go near a Wifi network, it is then detected and I can then see an "I" antenna at the top of the Today screen - I tap it and I can then tap "turn WiFi off". Is there any other way? I have not installed the Bios update because I am in Australia and it is not one of the countries listed. Appreciate your help.

There's a little utility I use (just because it's quicker than the usual iPaq Wireless screen buttons) called WirelessSwitcher. http://www.aspecto-software.com/WiFiFoFum/Utilities.htm Maybe this would do the trick for you.

I have a problem too involving the wifi. My wifi win't turn on. It will just say wifi turning on, but then it will go back to wifi off. And I don't have a cellular data plan. Can anyon


Hi
If you don't have a cellular data plan as you call it you will only be able to use WiFi to connect to the Internet.
To connect to a WiFi system, you may need 3 pieces of information:
A username
A password
An encryption key
Once you have successfully linked to a WiFi access point then your tablet/phone will remember the settings until told to forget them.
A lot of the time you may only need the encryption key, and if the tablet detects a WiFi access point then if you tap on that in wireless settings then it will either connect automatically or ask you for some sort of code - the encryption key. If this is not entered correctly then it will return an authentication problem/error. In order to connect you have to have this code.
Cheers

I have a compaq persario m2000 my wifi light is on but i cant get to the internet, its telling me Internet Explorer cannot display, the webpage please help thanks


There are two lights for the WiFi, Amber and Blue. the following explanation is from HP's website.

An indicator light c01525482.jpg glows blue when the Bluetooth or WiFi communication devices are turned on. If the computer has both Bluetooth and WiFi and one of them is turned off or the device is disabled, the light glows amber. The indicator light does not glow at all when power to the device is turned off. The HP Wireless Assistant software must be used to enable or disable the individual wireless functions.

FLASHING AMBER LINK IDICATOR LIGHT ON MY SB6121 MODEM


The SB6121 link light uses color to indicate the connection speed. Blinking means data transfer is taking place. Blue means that it's a 1000Base-T (High-speed Gigabit Ethernet). Amber means it's an older ethernet device. 100Base-T or 10Base-T Ethernet connection.

How do i get my printer to work and stop the wifi button from flashing red? my internet is connected but the printer is not


Blinking WiFi light indicates that the printer is either trying to connect to a wireless network or not at all. Unplug the printer from the power outlet. Replug after 10 seconds. This will give enough time for the printer to reset. If WiFi light continues to blink, you may need to reset the printer's wireless network adapter. Please refer to this article: How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings. The WiFi light will then turn off momentarily, then lights up solid orange. Launch the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility to reconnect printer to your wireless network.

Compaq parcerio 2000 laptop web connection light will not come on


did you refer to the wifi light? actually wifi radio receiver is a manual thing and you should turn it ON and OFF manually. Im not sure with the model you described but try to look for a slide or push button with the wifi icon (an antenna with 3 waves). then try to see if the wifi led is lit. Another way, if your device is soft touch, then there is no hard press button for it. it will be a combination of FN + a function key (look at the function key with the wifi icon)

Connect to the Internet


ok, this is a little technical, dell decided to make a complicated WiFi system for this, but once ou get the hang opf it you will be able to connect in no tim.
1. push the WiFi button located on the lower right side , it kind of is flush with the body
2. wait about 20 seconds, if the WiFi meter in the lower right corner of the screen does not change the you will have to go deeper into the system.
3.hopefuly you have noticed the blue light flashing by now, if it has an erratic flash , it is searching for a signal
4.no wifi yet? ok use the stylus to tap the wifi meter bar on the screen, this will show a menu consisting of a (WiFi radio on/off option, edit profiles option, WLan status option, site survey option, advanced, and versions.
5.tap the WLan staus option, this will bring you to the menu, this menu can also be accessed by going to settings. anyway look at the bars for link quality and strenghth, if they have a little bit of blue or none at allgo to site survey at the bottom of the screen
6.this menu shows al the available wifi networks in your area, ifnone show up, and you know you are near one tap the profiles setting, this will show all the nearby sites you can tap and hold any of these sites and manually connect to the internet that way.
7. I warn you , the dell x30 is a little wonky a great PDA and usually works great for the internet but sometimes it jsut plain refuses to actually connect to a site, even though it has a connection. I haqve found the best way to cure this is to do a soft reset, and reconnect.
If this still doesnt work for you, feel free to repost this question or email me, i might be able to help with some more details
