If you have vista click the start button and in the start search type "hp wireless assistant". It should show up in your list while you type it. Click on it. Once the assistant box shows up, click on "properties". A "settings" box should show up. The main one you need here is "independant controls for installed wireless device". Check that box. The other ones are icons and indicators that you can check at your discretion. If in doubt, check them all. Hit the "apply" button. Then in the upper right hand side of the box hit the button that says "turn on". This should activate the device and if you have a light up indicator on your computer, it should change color or light up. That should do it. Kind of weird how it gets to that point.

I have a Presario MR2305NR with a similar problem, I went so far as to reformat my hard drive and reinstall Windows & drivers. WLAN still disabled! The solution turned out to be so easy:

  1. Toggle wireless button on notebook (that's the one that is supposed to light up blue when it's working). Note how in one position, pop up screen says "HP Wireless Assistant WLAN: Off." In other postion, pop up screen says "HP Wireless Assistant WLAN: Disabled."
  2. Toggle wireless button again so pop up screen says " HP Wireless Assistant WLAN: Off."
  3. Double click on HP Wireless Assistant icon on tray. HP Wireless Assistant screen appears. Button on screen says "Turn On." If button is grayed out so you can't click on it, toggle wireless button again.
  4. Click on the "Turn ON: button. Button now says "Turn Off." Pop up screen now says " HP Wireless Assistant WLAN: On" and it is working again!

    I needed to go to device manager and "enable device" there. Turns out the system disabled it due to a conflict.

Several things could be a problem. First, not all wireless networks are visible, even though they are active. I have no idea what you're trying to connect - a phone, tablet, laptop, TV, or ? sometimes you can type in a network name and then it will ask you for the password or passphrase. to try this, look at your friend's device while it is connected and be sure to type the wireless network name exactly like on his device. Another possibility is the wireless router is putting out a signal your device cannot connect to.

How to change host on mc9090


Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) allow mobile computers to communicate wirelessly and send captured data to a host device in real time. Before using the mobile computer on a WLAN, the facility must be set up with the required hardware to run the wireless LAN and the mobile computer must be configured. Refer to the documentation provided with the access points (APs) for instructions on setting up the hardware. To configure the mobile computer, a set of wireless applications provide the tools to configure and test the wireless radio in the mobile computer. The Wireless Application menu on the task tray provides the following wireless applications: • Wireless Status • Wireless Diagnostics • Find WLANs • Manage Profiles • Options • Enable/Disable Radio • Log On/Off Tap the Signal Strength icon to display the Wireless Applications menu

My wlan (function/F10) key doesn't work/light stays amber!!!!! No wireless internet/Internet only works when directly plugged into PC.


Check in device manager for the wireless card. Right click 'my computer' select 'properties' click the hardware tab and device manager, it should be listed as a network device. if it's listed update the drivers, it may just be disabled in windows. If it's listed as installed and working correctly in device manager it may be faulty.
you can also try running 'cmd' to lauch the command prompt and typing "ipconfig /all" this will show all available devices in your computer and their state.

Good luck.

I need to set up secure access for 3 computers, HOW?


if your connecting all your computers wirelessly then you can setup encryption for your wireless network.
login to your router from a browser. go to 192.168.1.1
click on wireless
click on wireless security
set security mode to wpa2/wpa mix mode.
set the passphase. this will be the password you required to authenticate to your wireless network.
click save settings.
all wireless devices will need to be reconfigured to the new passphase/password in order to use your secured wireless network.

Cannot connect to wireless connection using the router c150brs4


There might be many reasons for this. However I always prefer to begin by simple tiny things. Make sure that the router is advertising itself, there something called SSID (service set identifier). The SSID differentiates one WLAN from another, so all access points and all devices attempting to connect to a specific WLAN must use the same SSID. A device will not be permitted to join the BSS unless it can provide the unique SSID.

to make the long story short , SSID is the method of knowing that there is a wireless coverage in a certain area. sending SSID sometimes is considered unsecure. Therefore you have an option of disabling SSID broadcasting. Therefore I suggest to make sure that SSID broadcasting is enabled on your wireless router and then sarch for your wireless network.

One other thing make sure that your router is using a WI-FI technology (802.11b, 802.11a or 802.11g) that is supported by the wireless Adapter (Card) implemented on your laptop..


thanks.

Hello

Disable firewall settings to check if it doesn't block connection.

1) Update the WLan driver. In most cases this solves connections issues.
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/wlan/

2) Go to device manger -> WLan card -> Properties -> Advanced tab and check if the WLan modus 802.11 B/G or N has been set to the same Wlan modules supported by router!

3) Disable the WLan encryption and password on the router and check if you could connect to the router without any security settings. Do this only for testing purposes. If it connects properly, enable the encryption password and try again.

4) Disable WLan power saving! This can be done in Win Power Management. If that doesn't work, perform a system restore, set your computer to how it was the last time you were on the internet.

Adding a wired computer or device to the network.

If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you are adding a desktop or any other device to the router which will always be connected to the router with the Ethernet cable, then in this case you don't need to do anything.
You can just connect the Ethernet cable between the router and the computer and it should work.
If you are not able to go online even when it is connected properly then check IP address of the computer.

Adding a wireless computer or device to the network.

If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you want to add a new wireless device ( laptop or any other wireless device) to the network, then you should know all the wireless settings of the router. What wireless settings do you need to know ?
You should know the wireless network name ( SSID ), wireless channel and the wireless security password
( network key ). Once you get all the wireless settings of the router , you will need to connect to the wireless network on the computer. when you try to connect to the network , you will see your wireless network in the list. You just need to select your network and connect to it. If it is secured then you will need to enter the network key and you will be able to go online.
