HP/Compaq :: DV5-1155ee- Wireless Led Suddenly Orange Although Wireless Is Enabled
Jul 15, 2009
Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 (64-Bit) (problem is also there with Windows 7)
I sometimes try to connect to a network, then the wireless led suddenly orange although Wireless is Enabled. My friend who has an XP system can connect to that network in the cafe just fine so does everybody else, but on my system, it says connecting, then the icon turns orange as if there was no wirelesss card installed.
I am using the Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN v220.127.116.11 Driver which was installed through Windows Update along with HP Wireless Assistant v18.104.22.168
Now I have an orange icon for wireless, although wireless is enabled in both device manager and through the touch key.
the icon will turn blue if I restart and wireless access will be restored, but I will lose it again if I try to connect to a wireless network.
I have a Compaq Presario CQ57 Laptop which has worked fine up until this morning as i cannot connect to the internet with wireless. I have re-started my laptop and checked the settings but i keep getting the same message telling me to turn the wireless on. The F12 is orange and remains orange and will not turn on or change colour.
I have read about many issues regarding Wifi connection (connection drops often without any reason, poor signal strength, too long time to establich connection...). My problem could sound similar, but it's rather different:
Although my wireless connection appears like Enabled in Win8, I cannot switch it on / connect. It appears like Not Connected (Wifi = Off). In fact, I cannot see any wifi network when the list of available networks used to be.
- I checked BIOS, and it's set as Enabled. - I updated BIOS to the last version. - I updated wireless wireless drivers to the last version - I modified the wireless configuration as it's especified in the long forum thread for Wifi issues
But nothing has been successfull. For some strange reason, I cannot switch the wifi device on.
I tried all the (disable and enable, hard reset, and uninstall driver) solutions on the thread given, but still doesn't work. Here is a screen shot of my adapter and driver version I updated to the latest version and rolled it back and still no luck. I don't want to reseat the adapter until its my last resort.
I have a HP Pavilion G7 notebook. The model is 1219-wm.
I recently did a clean re-install of Windows 7 ultimate from a CD. After I did the re-install, the wireless orange light stays on and will not turn to white/blue.
I have tried to download and install drivers from the hp website. NOTHING seems to work. I even tried to download the HP Wireless Assistant Support Wizard, but it doesn't work. It keeps saying that the Wireless Assistant is not compatible with my model.
Every time I troubleshoot, I keep getting the following message "Install a driver for your network adapter"....
I have an HP 2000 laptop and all of a sudden the wireless function will not work. no matter what I do the button stays orange. I do not have Wireless Assistant installed on this computer. I tried to download it from another computer and install to mine, but it stated that the version was not accepted. I have only had this computer 6 months.
Earlier this week I wanted to use Pokerstars, but I was due an update (I already had it installed). I updated and loaded it up, although it seemed to lag at the log in screen, so I CTR+ALT+DEL and ended it in task manager. I reopened the program and had the same issue, so I task manager'd it again and it still didn't work. So I rebooted. When I rebooted, all of a sudden I had no option of connecting to a wireless network - only ethernet and VPN in the settings.
I have been into device manager and can see that I have a Qualcomm Atheros Driver in my network devices, although it has an amber warning with code 52 (driver unsigned).
I tried going onto Acer website and downloading the latest driver, which comes with a set up package - unfortunately this didn't work. I tried uninstalling the driver and pointing to the driver that I had downloaded manually; but every time it tells me 'You have the best driver set up for this device' and reverts back to the unsigned driver.
I have tried FN + F3 to disable and enable flight mode - no impact.
I read somewhere about updating bios settings - but there are none in the download section when I put my serial number into the Acer website.
I also tried downloading drivers from other external website and downloaded some third party program called 'Driver Assist' as the way the page was set up fooled me into thinking that was the legit download - it didn't work, and I have subsequently uninstalled it
I have only had the laptop just over a month new, and all had been working until then. Extremely unlikely to be any other spyware as the only things I have installed on here are Steam (FM15) and Pokerstars. I don't even really use this for browsing, just those two apps.
Further info - not sure if relevant but I installed the Acer WLAN + Bluetooth setup as a potential fix, and the bluetooth element seems to be functioning fine - not sure if they're on the same integrated card?
I have an Acer Aspire 5920G, with the Intel 3945AGB wireless card. I've had issues with the wireless for some time, where it would suddenly lose connectivity and I would have to reboot for it to find any wireless networks. Yesterday, however, it lost connectivity again, and now is unable to connect even after several reboots.
The wifi switch is on and lights up. Acer eNet manager tells me there are no wireless networks, whereas Windows Vista's network manager tells me that I'm either a) Connected to my wireless network but with a limited connection or b) Not connected at all, but wireless networks (including my own) are available. It always fails to connect. My wireless router is a Dlink DIR-615.
I've tried inputting the WEP key again, no results. I've tried rolling back the wireless device driver (to 22.214.171.124), no results.
My husband has an identical laptop, with an identical setup, and everything works just fine for his laptop.
I did nothing out of the ordinary last night when this happened - no settings were changed, etc. The only thing I did do that I don't do every day, was that I ran the disk cleanup manager, and it cleaned out a few temp files, but I thought that this was a harmless operation...
My first month with this brand new notebook was problems it gave me a blue screen and shut down on me. I thought it was normal being that it was my very first notebook. My hp pavilion notebook is only 3 years old but it now it has a blinking caps light and a orange light on the wireless key. I have tried to hard reset it but nothing works. I was use to it shutting down on me and restarting again but this time it would not come back on. I call Hp tech and now I'm being told this computer is obsolete and can't be fixed.
I have a x201 cto using 64bits Win 7. The wireless adapter is intel advanced-N 6200. However, I found my wireless always turn off suddenly and I can not turn it on anymore (even using Fn+F5) until reboot.
I think something similar has been posted here before. In essence, I find that when I use my VX Revolution (or is it MX? Whichever one is the mobile version), the mouse occasionally loses its wireless connection to the computer, and so I have to click multiple times to get it to register.
This is annoying enough for me to consider getting a wired mouse, but I want to know if I get something like an MX518 if I'm still going to run into the disconnect/lag issue.
In other words, is it a wireless issue or a Logitech/PC/Mac conflict issue? I experienced both with and without the Logitech software installed. The software is currently installed.
if you have an older SZ and want to add a 3rd wire, this will show you how and where to put it.
So a while back I upgraded the the 4965AGN in my SZ750N to an Intel 5200, since that day, B&G has been noisy. I managed to arrange the antenna connections in such a way as to minimize it to within tolerable limits. I also talked to some experts and they said it wasn't going to hurt anything if there was a bit of static so I left it.
I have known for a while that is was the white antenna lead that was causing the static. Unfortunately disconnecting it caused a drop in signal. While working on my Windows 7 guide I had a problem and had to open the laptop. While doing so I noticed the white lead and the antenna it attached to. I hadn't ever really noticed where it sat before. Sony couldn't have hardly chosen a worse place for it.
Sony decided the best place for it, and I assume this is because they merely upgraded the old 2 wire wireless to 3 by adding this, is almost under the power button. Right next to... a speaker. The lead runs along a Speaker wire and puts the antenna right next to it. See pics 1 & 2................
I've got a new Dell XPS 15 four days ago. I've been having a lot of issues with its internal mSSD drive. The model I ordered has a regular 1TB hard disk and a 128 SSD. I was quite surprised to discover that the Intel Rapid Storage Technology (that allow faster data access by using the SSD as cache) is not enabled by default. I tried to enable it but no success. An "unknown error" message box showed up when I attempted to do so. That was really strange, considering that the only thing that I've done so far in my computer was installing MS Office and Google Chrome.I contacted the tech support three days ago and I was told to reset my computer to factory default and try again. After a long wait for system restoration I enabled the acceleration mode in the Intel Rapid Storage software.
Everything proceeded according to expected, but when I rebooted my computer it failed to detect any bootable device. I can't even access the system restoration by pressing F8 during initialization now. especially when we consider that this shouldn't be happening in a premium $1,999 model. Also, shouldn't this KEY feature (caching with SSD) be enabled out of the box?
Do I need this program to run on start-up? Does it do anything more than state whether the wireless is on/off? Would I be able to turn on the Wireless Network Card if the program is not running? If I do turn it off for start-up, I will still be able to access it in the Control Panel if need be, right?
I have an HP dv6809 and it has a wireless G connection, the rest of my network is wireless N. Could anybody point me in the right direction for a new N adapter that will be compatible with the notebook?
I used mujjuman's stickied guide to installing windows xp on a HP dv6700 and everything went perfectly except I can't connect to any wireless connections. The driver I'm sure is the right one and I can see available networks to connect to but it never can connect.
There is always an error saying something along the lines of "The wireless connection is out of range or too low a signal" but this is when I have the computer right next to the router and the windows wireless manager shows it as having full signal.
i just got my tx2500z and of course, i reformatted to a fresh install of windows. however, i forgot to make a backup copy of the hp wireless assistant which allows you to turn of wireless or bluetooth independently. i tried the install that came with another hp laptop but i ended up getting bsod's so i'm asking if anyone who has the same model could provide me with this software that came from the tx2500z compatible for 64-bit.
I have a HP pavillion DV 6000 laptop. The wireless on my laptop is not turning on. It is not the same problem the network card disappearing. I can see the card in device manager. I have tried installing it and also enabling and disabling it. It says its enabled but disconnected. Tried safe mode with N/w as well but nothing is working for me. Haven't made any changes to the software.
seems like my interal wifi is dying... signal fades significantly whenever I go two stories up my house. My newer laptop is fine. Is there a compatible 802.11N PCI card for this laptop? Is the internal card a PCI or mini PCI? Also, I tried using my old USB wireless adapter, but it cant detect my router. It detects my neighbours, but not mine...weird.
I have a mystery that I hope someone can help with. My dv9000 (dv9308nr) won't connect with my daughter's NETGEAR wireless router. Specifically the router is a NETGEAR WPNT 834. My computer works great with my Motorola wireless router. It also works great with my mothers Linksys wireless router and the wireless router at work. Don't know the brand of the router at work. I've verified multiple times the network key, etc. My daughter's Apple Macbook with the same key works properly.
