We have a new HP G72 with windows 7. The wireless button turns the WLAN on and off, but the light stays amber, it is suppose to switch to blue. I still cannot connect to internet, troubleshoot and it says wireless capability is turned off. I have updated the driver, it is realtek rlt8191se, with 12/03/2010 software. I have tried uninstalling the device and reainstalling, still does not work. Went into the BIOS and enabled network adapter boot. Nothing in the BIOS about wireless. I updated everything else using the windows update to make sure that they did not have a fix. Windows mobility center says wireless is off but it will not let me select to turn it on. Other laptops are still able to see our wireless router, so it is not the router.

I tried replacing the keyboard but it did not work. Anyways, For some strange reason my wireless capability was turned off and now I have no way of turning it back on. I have searched many forums but have not found an answer.
Q: Is there any way to turn on the wireless capability i.e. using the function keys to turn on the wireless radio, WITHOUT actually using the function keys? i.e. using a command or something within the computer?

Im having a problem with my laptops wireless capability; it worked fine, until i tried a hardwried connection (i went over to this center and tried one and it didn't work, so i unplugged it).
Now, I can't connect to any wireless networks unless i do the windows network troubleshooter, which it tells me my laptops wireless capability is turned off; I then have to click on the option to turn wireless capability back on..
I have tried playing in change adapter settings in Network Connections, but nothing is working.. I have tried disabling the LAC and wireless adapter but nothing is working..
I also notice under Local Area Connection that is says "Network cable unplugged". Also in one of the tables of the windows network troubleshooter it shows Network cable unplugged and wireless capability is turned off.. Is my laptop trying to find the hardwire connection all the time so it turns off wireless?

I have returnd my laptop (Fujitsu Siemens Amilo 2727) to factory setting, increased the memory and installed Windows 7. Wireless was working fine until I installed Windows 7. Everything works fine on the Ethernet cable, the usual way of turning on the wireless connection using Fn+F1 is not working.
I am connected to unencrypted wireless, firewall turned off. My dropbox will sync and if I open IE I can access www.microsoft.com [very slowly] but so far that is all. Chrome wont open anything - just says proxy server problem. If I run diagnose from IE it say my connection is fine. I have AVG free software. I do get a error from totalnetguard when I boot up that says it can't log on. If I use my aircard direct on the computers usb slot and connect that way everything works fine.
Upon turning on the computer, the wireless will not connect. It seems to not recognize the configuration of the wireless. I have to go in and put in the key every time... and then there are times that it says "limited or no connectivity". We just had a new router/modem installed in our network just yesterday. This router/modem is in conjunction with cable tv difficulties we were having.
