Wireless Capability Turned Off

Sep 6, 2011

My HP laptop (Windows Vista, 4-5 five years old) has started to malfunction. I cannot connect to the router attached to my PC. The message tells me that the wireless capability is turned off. It says "Turn on wireless capability - this can be done by using as switch which can usually be found on side of computer or a function key combination."

Wireless :: Wireless Capability Is Turned Off / Wlan Is On

Jan 8, 2011

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.

Compaq Presario CQ62 Laptop - Enable Wireless Capability Without Function Keys?

Aug 11, 2012

I have a Compaq presario CQ62 Laptop. The other day, my friend accidentally spilled water on my laptop keys. The computer works perfectly fine except for the keyboard. 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.

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?

Laptops Wireless Capability Keeps Turning Off?

Jan 8, 2012

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?

Cisco Wireless :: Set Up Fail Over Capability On Two Active WLC 5508

Mar 18, 2013

for some reason some AP's are terminating the association to either one of the controllers for a short period of time. When this happens and the AP re-associates itself with either of the active controllers, it looses the information of what group it previously belonged; and it gets dropped in the default group, broadcasting every single SSID available.
What I would like to see happen is that if for some reason an AP terminates association, but restablishes it shortly; it can automatically go to the correct group.
Both WLC are running the same version and have the same amount of licenses, they can hold all the AP's one of the WLC came down. Config-wise they are identical except that the groups are named differently but ultimately configured the same. If that is an issue we can change it no problem since it's only the name.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1340 - Turn On Wireless Capability

Mar 28, 2009

I have a Studio XPS 1340. Running Vista. Sat evening I was on the net, and had left the machine for a while. I refreshed a page using F5 after 10 mins inactivity, and the WIFI had dropped. I have the Dell Wireless 1515 Wireless N adaptor. I cannot find any wireless networks, and the error message I get is to "Turn on wireless capability".

On the Studio XPS 13 there is no wireless switch, to turn on/off the wireless. I've tried to turn on the wireless using Fn + F2, and I have also unchecked the "allow computer to turn off this device to save power." box. rebooted any further suggestions?  I've disabled and enabled the wireless network card a couple of times, drivers seem to be working correctly. when I try to update the drivers I'm told they are the most up to date drivers available.

Might this be McAfee related? Have I inadvertently turned off the wireless using a shortcut key by accident?

D-Link DIR-615 :: Wireless Router Continuously Resetting Itself When Turned On

Jul 21, 2011

I have bought a DIR 615 router one week ago and although my main goal was to use it at better wireless speeds (using the N feature) it turned out that I can only use it as a normal router. The hardware version is H1 and the software ver is 8.0.

The problem is that whenever I turn on the wireless with default configuration, the router immediately starts resetting by itself over and over again. Sometimes it doesn't reconnect, but as soon as I try to connect to it using one of my laptops, it immediately starts restarting. After it starts the continuous resetting, it is very hard to reset its settings using the hardware reset button, because I don't even have time to press it for 10 seconds. If the wireless is turned off, everything works.

TP-Link 300Mbps Wireless :: WR1403ND - Can't Connect When WMM Is Turned On

Jan 18, 2013

Region : Australia
Model : TL-WR1043ND
Hardware Version : V1
Firmware Version :

Yesterday I got a new TP-Link TL-WR1403ND Wireless N router. And after trying for ages to try to connect my Galaxy Nexus and iPad (both Wireless N devices), I finally called the TP-Link Support.Both devices could see the wireless, but would never let me join.Anyway, support told me to try connect a laptop if I had one, which I did (a very old one) and it also could not connect. The first thing the tech got me to do was set the mode from mixed-b/g/n to mixed-b/g. This got it to work, and the tech basically said � there you go, works. But the main reason I got this router was to use wireless n.Anyway, I told her that was not acceptable, she then told me to set it back and change the security to WPA-PSK (it was WPA2-PSK). I did this and she also told me to disable WMM.Anyway that worked, so I was happy. I then went and change the security back to WPA2, and it still worked. So the main issue stopping me from connecting to the WiFi from my devices was WMM.So after all that... I looked up WMM, and can see it basically a QoS feature. So why does it not work with my phone, ipad and laptop? I have searched the net, and from what I can see, it is a very Important thing to have WMM turned on. So why won't it work with my devices? All three of them can see the wireless network, I can put the password in, but then they don't connect.I am on the latest firmware (can't check the actual name and version as I am not at home), so is there something wrong with this particular router? Is it a known problem? Do I have a faulty unit?

Dell :: Dimension 5150 Desktop Computer With Wireless Capability

Jun 10, 2012

I have an elderly Dell Dimension 5150 desktop computer. It should have wireless capability. I purchased a wifi usb 2.0 adapter, but have been unable to set it up following on-screen instructions.Running Win XP Home edition.I have reason to believe that OS may have been comprimised by a virus previously; that is why I set it aside. Now I am attempting to reactivate it.The OS seems to work normally, but I need internet access to confirm this.

I have a functioning wifi router in my house; it works normally with two other computers.I am attempting to confirm if the Win XP OS needs to be replaced before purchase.How can I confirm the OS is shot and I must purchase a new one?
