Cannot connect wireless or even turn on the wireless "switch" on my computer

I recently installed a copy of Windows 7 Professional, yet the installation, I couldn't have the wireless network to connect to what either.  The first thing I noticed was that my wireless button (which is a touchscreen as a device on the top of my keyboard) was not on, can I turn it on, or do I not have the fn + f2 option.

My computer is a HP Elitebook 8440p and regardless of what precedes, I proceeded to install drivers wireless on HP support site, they had to choose some and I ended up trying 3 which did not work.  I found a page of networking which showed these drivers wireless with a connection of sorts but closer examination revealed that the problem lied with simply turn on my wireless switch.

LAN works fine (I'm here now) and the wireless switch control active if I turn on my any and hit him (orane to blue towers), but otherwise, I am astonished.  I don't think that the router is the problem, but it is a 'Fast' model... that's all I know at this point, although I'll try to find the type of exact model if its important.

I think it's information pertienent, thank you for any help you can provide!


My computer shows management I installed the drivers...

In fact, I found the answer (I hope help you someone else with your post if the time is not lost)

My wireless is fine, it turns off when I plug my ethernet cable.

Appreciate the answer however.

    have you tried to connect with another machine to check if it works?
    Otherwise, I suggest the following things:

    -Disable all security features
    -update the firmware on your router
    -dhcp instead of IP´s sets the value
    -read the manual of the router, sometimes they have weird parameters

    and finally and most importantly, try to connect with your M1 to another access point to make sure that you connect your machine to a wireless network.

  • HP Envy 4500 cannot connect wireless to the printer

    Recently I bought HP Envy 4500 printer.

Anyone have any ideas? Thank you

    Hi @atr345,

    I see by your post that one of the computers is not recognizing the printer on the network, but you can print by a USB connection. I can help you with this.

    Type the IP address in the address bar of Internet Explorer to see if the built-in Web page printer server load on this computer.

    Check the computer IPV4 address to see if it matches the first 3 games of the IP address of the printer.

    Go to start, type cmd in the search box, enter, then type ipconfig.
    Check the IPV4 address.
    Now, check the IPV4 address for the printer. (
    Do the first 3 sets of numbers match? (if they do not match then the computer is not on the right network)

    Try and ping the printer.

    In the same window, type ping printers (space between ping and IP address) IP address
    What are the results?

    If the available printer built-in Web server, the first 3 sets of numbers of computers had matched the address IPV4 of the printer and you could ping the printer, then try and configure the connection to printer wireless via the USB connection.

    Installation of the software of the printer for a wireless network connection.

    Please go to the first step: preparation for installation, number 4.

    If you need help, let me know.

    Good day!
    Thank you.

  • Cannot connect wireless to the HP3052a

    I read the other thread on this subject, but what they experience is a little different for me, so rather than high jacking this thread, I decided to start a new one.

    I'm trying the 3052 has a wireless connection to my laptop which is running vista.  I tried everything I know to do, without success.

    1. I disabled my antivirus.

    2. I tried to run diagnostic tools that HP put out who said that everything is good.

    3. I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers

    Here's what's happening.

    I can print from my laptop via a USB cable.

    I do not use a router. I use my phone mobile hotspot for my internet connection at home. My phone is find the printer and it promises to be a connected device.

    The printer still appears as a device connected to the hotspot, but the printer is not always the case as connected.

    I tried to run the printer software where offers to 'change a device connected to a wireless device.

    I also tried "to install a new printer.

    With the two above attempts (amd everything I try) the software gets to a point where she wants to connect a USB cable to continue. The USB cable is plugged in (and don't forget, it prints via the port USB cable is good but he does not recognize) so I can't ever reach this point.  I removed the cable and replugged in, I tried to run the software in administrator mode.  I think I tried everything.

    At one point, I got the printer on the network, connected to the Hotspot and "all ready." I tried to print and it says it printed but nothing came out of the other end!

    Confiuration WIreless printing shows that everything is properly connected. My hotspot is not safe, race open, so it's not a security problem.

    Where should I go from here?

    Hi danilyn22,

    Sounds like it may be associated with your hotspot. Who is your business wireless?

    You have another connection internet at home, other than the phone?

    If this isn't the case, you can try install on a family or friends network to check the hardware works?

    See the document below for further assistance.

  • my laptop cannot connect wirelessly to the internet with the built-in wireless adapter

    G50-118NR my client specification identifies my network home qwest DSL WPA2 as public wireless whenever I connect wireless using the Atheros AR5007 802 wireless network adapter. 11 b / g WiFi and does not connect to the internet.  I can change the Private type, but it does not help.  I have restored the laptop using Vista Home Prem 32-bit recovery CD and that did not help.   The wired connection works perfectly and other 'g' and 'n' USB wireless adapters also work very well.

  • FF4580 cannot connect wireless - Windows 8

    I historically used the HP F4580 under XP and Windows 7, but not wireless.  I have a new PC running 64-bit Windows 8 and I try to re install the F4580 but would prefer that it works wireless.

    I downloaded the software and the drivers from the HP site and the printer works fine using a USB connection.

    I am trying to convert from USB using the installation of HP Wi - Fi and it states that my SSID is not available. Even when I type the SSID it States is not avaialable.  He told me then the printer that I have chosen is not connected.

    I added the printer by using the mac address of my router as a reliable source.

    I configured directly from the device by using the wireless network wizard and has an IP address of the printer.

    States printed scan wireless located upward and running and works well, but I cannot print to it wireless.  As soon as I remove the USB printer is not available.

    I tried to delete the printer and restart and reinstall.  I disabled antivirus and firewall, but still can't print wireless.

    Someone at - it other ideas or have I missed something really simple.

    Thank you


    Please download the following tool when (a) your computer is on the internet wireless (b) the printer is connected to your computer via a USB port and works and the WPS is enabled:

    The tool will ask you to convert the USB wireless, please say Yes. It will ask you to accept the SSID, security key... It will try to connect to the router with the existing information from your computer and download the full feature software and drivers and install for you.
