HP Envy Dv6-7246us Networking :: Wireless Turned OFF - Cannot Turn Back On
Feb 3, 2013
I have an HP ENVY dv6-7246us Notebook PC with a Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 802.11b/g/n wireless adaptor. the past 2 weeks the adaptor has been turned off and I can not find a way to turn it back on.
In device manager the adaptor is shown to be working properly. The indicator light (f12) is showing white as it should and toggles into and out of airplane mode properly.I have tried to open the properties tab in network connections to no avail. I also could not find a newer driver for the adaptor.the ethernet adapter is working well. I have Windows 8 64 bit and am using AVG anti-virus.I need the wireless to be working properly or I will just have to get another computer.
I'm runnng Windows 8 on a HP Pavillion g4. I was a playing a game with the wifi off, the lan wire connected, and the battery out, on high perfomance mode. The game crashed, I shut the laptop off by keeping to power button pressed. After starting it up again and trying to use wifi, I realized that pressing the wireless button would show "airplane mode off" on screen but it would not turn blue, nor would the wifi turn on.
After this, I attempted a system restore, repairing existing drivers, checking BIOS, and a hard reset by taking out the battery, pressing on the button for 30 seconds, and then starting up again. None of these methods have worked so far.
I don't know what is happening! In the morning, I was able to use the wireless connection of my laptop! Suddenly I cannot find any network connection! I did reformat the laptop already, and went to bios set up, restored it but nothing happen! I also took out the battery and disconnected the AC Power, pressed the power button for 30 seconds, as read in the Internet to at least reset but it does not work for me!
Bluetooth is on (based on hp connection manager wireless is off (disabled by mobility center) troubleshoot result (wireless capability off)
I have the HP Pavilion dv7-3079wm for a few years never had an issue till lately. the wireless button will not turn on. i have tried rebooting, updating and restore. If I connect with the ethernet cable it sometimes turns the wireless button on but does not stay on so I can not take it outside anymore.
How do I turn on Wifi with my Envy m6 1117TX laptop? A few days ago, a technician from a mobile wireless provider told me how to turn it off but now I have access to a Wifi connection and I can't remember how to turn it on. I've spent all day trying to find any information on this at all and have come to the conclusion that HP has easily the worst support system for simple questions of any company I've ever encountered.
My wireless button will not light up blue. Pressing it only switches airplane mode on and off. I tried a hard reset and it didn't work. I have a HP Envy TS 17 Notebook. Product number is E8A11UA#ABA. How to solve this?
I am considering buying the HP Envy 17-j130us 17.3-Inch Touchsmart Laptop with Beats Audio - model E8A04UA#ABA. The wireless spec says 802.11 A/C. Does it also work in the most common wireless 802.11 B/G/N?
I know the access points in the building are not A/C yet.
I am using an HP Envy dv7-7250us laptop, running windows 8.1. All my software is up to date. In the last month, every time i turn on the laptop, the internet connection drops. Running HP troubleshooter resets the wifi adaptor.
I have Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 installed. I went out to Intel's website and have the most current driver.
I have an HP Envy 15t (model k000) that I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 64bit onto when I put an SSD in it. I have been able to get all of the drivers for it except the wireless controller from the HP website. Is the wireless driver available somewhere?
last week i turned of my wireless internet for three days (i was out of town and didn't need it) but today when i went to turn it back on it couln't detect my wireless internet. it's an hp enve dv7 7250 running windows 8 64 bit
i've had the computer for two years.
about a months ago i had to reset the computer due to software problems.
my wireless router was just replaced two weeks ago and all other devices are working fine.
i have attempted to reinstall the drivers. no changes
i have had issues with the wireless on the computer for the passed year (limited access) usualy fixed its self
when pluged directly into the internet, internet works fine.
I am having trouble with my wireless button, it remains red/orange despite touching it and restarting my laptop several times. My laptop is an HP Pavilion DV7=1135NR, it is originally installed with Windows Vista 64bit. However, i have it reformatted and change the OS to Windows7 Ultimate (32bit). And now i the wireless button wont turn blue. And also the wireless button located in the taskbar is no longer there.
Some additional background: The same problem (wireless wont turn blue) had been recurring before i had it reformatted but then i seek assistance then to HP customer assistant, and installed atheros. the problem had fixed for a while and the same problem would recur. However, i can turn it blue once i restart the laptop or when the "WLAN disabled" message would appear in the task bar and i would immediately touch the wireless button.
i tried downloading a driver from HP but still not working. right now i am connected via ethernet cable and its such an incovenience.
I purchased an HP ENVY dv6 Notebook from Costco today, running Windows 8, an Atheros AR9485 adapter, and connecting to a Belkin Surf N300 Wireless N Router - Model# F7D6301 v3.
My problem is, in the past 6-7 hours of usage, I've lost connection 3 separate times. The first two times was fairly brief, lasting only a few minutes. I closed out the Internet Explorer Application, and upon reopening it and attempting to connect again, worked fine. The last occurrence, however, lasted 15-20 minutes and finally resulted in me just hard wiring it in.
I'm brand new to HP computers, and Windows 8 all together, so I'm not sure where to start first. I've searched around the web, and on the forums here, but haven't found a fix.
I use the wireless router daily (hard wired) for my Xbox 360, and rarely, if ever, has issues connecting.
I have a HP ENVY TouchSmart 14t-k000 CTO Ultrabook. It just went out of warranty a month or so ago but started blue-screening rigth after that - I had to reinstall Windows 8.1.
Since the install, my wifi has not been working properly. (I can use an Ethernet cable without a problem.) Sometimes it will say the wifi is connected with full bars, but then I get a "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET" when I try to pull up any browser and nothing will load. Other times it just won't connect at all. The weird thing is that 5% of the time it will work fine, and I'll be able to use wifi no problem for a couple hours at a time.
What could possibly be going on? Is it a driver issue? Should I get a new network adapter? Is it a settings issue?
I have a HP ENVY TouchSmart M7-J010DX Laptop with Core i7 Haswell CPU and Intel Centrino Wireless N-2230 card. Product number is E0K83UAR and I'm running Windows 8.1 OS. Lately, I've experienced many occasions when the laptop fails to connect to a wireless network when other PCs in the same room connect. I should say it mostly connects, but with "limited connectivity" and no Internet access. I struggled during a week's vacation to connect and then had a problem connecting when I returned home, where I previously had no problems. And I'm having this problem on networks that previously were not a problem. I've read on this forum that many people are having similar problems. So, I'd like to upgrade the wireless/bluetooth card to something that is known to work more reliably. I assume I would have to stay in the Intel family. I saw one recommendation for an Intel AC 7260 card...
I have a HP Envy 15-j040eo that worked fine until about two weeks ago but then it did no longer recognize my wireless-n. At that time I had Win 8.1 64 bit with automatic updates. Other computers and iPhones still recognized my wifi.
After spending hours and days with the HP Support we finally did a complete reset of the computer. Now I have Windows 8 with the updates disabled and wireless-n works fine until I allow windows to update. If windows is allowed to update the computer do not recognize the network anymore. With other than -n networks or with cable it works fine. The only way that me and the HP Support has found get the wifi working is to completely reset the computer. If I only make a refresh the wifi still don't work.
The wireless adapter is a Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn and it works with driver 126.96.36.199 on windows 8. When I first had the issue I tried to update to driver V188.8.131.52 but it still did not find the wifi-n in windows 8.1.
BIOS is updated to latest version and even if I turn automatic updates off the network went dead when upgrading from Windows 8 to 8.1 but on Windows 8 it works as long as I choose not to update the driver for the wireless adaptor.
As I prefer to have windows 8.1 and updated with automatic updates; how can I configure it to still work with wireless-n?
I have a problem with my wireless devices on my Hp envy 15 notebook k000nx - Windows 8.1. I have tried many ways to turn on the wireless network by reinstalling drivers from hp website and turn off the airplane mode.
Even when i use the troubleshooter it only sees the cable problem. But there is no sign of my wireless or the bluetooth they are just gone. And here is some picture for my problem ..
When I plug power, battery indicator bulb indicating and when i press turn on button on laptop, suddenly battery indicator bulb turned off and laptop wont start. then i removed battery and install it again. then again battery indicator bulb indicating. this sequence happening again and again. what could be the reason.....
On my old XPS, when the screen turned off, the keyboard backlight would turn off with it automatically. My new Inspiron 17 does not do this, and I can't find anything that seems to control the behavior. Is there a way to do this?
Alternately, is there a software solution to control the keyboard backlight?
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 recently bought a Lenovo z50-70 laptop with Broadcom Wireless Adapters. Its a Windows 7-32 bit system. Wireless LAN worked fine for a few hours, but after a restart it started saying Wireless Capability is turned off. i have tried following:
1. looked for a hardware wireless switch. there is none. 2. reinstalled WLAN drivers from lenovo site without success. 3.restarted WLAN Autoconfig service for no avail.
I was just sitting there browsing the internet and the damn thing just shut off and now it won't turn back on. The battery was totally charged... so does that just mean it's fried or what? It's a year and a half old so .
After I put my laptop on sleep mode and shut the lid down, I always see the computer turn back on automatically after only a few minutes (I can hear the laptop working and the light turns green, although the monitor remains off).
Why is this so? The laptop also seems to turn off after a while it is turned back on from sleep mode.
I also notice my Z having a particular video error at times. That is, sometime, the laptop monitor turns black for a few seconds, turns back on at the highest brightness setting, and a error message pops up saying something about how it was unable to find a driver.
