Preferred Solution: how can i turn on/off wifi capability without function key and wifi button.?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: how can i turn on/off wifi capability without function key and wifi button.?

You can go to Control Panel--> Network and Sharing Center --> and then click on "Change Adapter settings" on the left side. Once here you can then right click your Wireless Adapter and select DISABLE. Be kind and Mark as Answer if I helped.

When I use Fn-F8 to turn off WiFi, the WiFi Function Button at the top of the keybaord doesn't seem to be able to turn it back on, even though it claims to. The only thing that turns it back on is to use Fn-F8 again. Is this designed-for behaviour, or is it a bug (not that it matters, but curious).

For info, the Function Buttons are shown along the top at http://forums.toshiba.com/t5/Keyboar...zy/td-p/267999. It is also shown in http://web1.toshiba.ca/support/isg/m...lishManual.pdf, page 2-8, enumerated item #14.

hi, I have a pavilion dv6-615nr which is about 5 years old. WiFi button worked well until couple of months ago and now it works as it wishes. Now it is always orange and though I press it won't change. Sometimes it changes into blue but it happens rarely and it stays only few minutes. Again it turns orange. The WiFi card is Intel Centrino Wireless- N 1000.Sometimes this doesn't show up in the network adapter(device manager) and sometimes with a caution mark. When I troubleshoot it says they fix it. but button is still orange and WiFi doesn't work at all. Please tell me what should I do. It's really giving me a headache.Thank you in advance.

A:WiFi button won't turn on

Hi: If the wireless card is intemittently disappearing completely from the device manager, perhaps the connection from the card to the slot it plugs into, has become oxidized. I would try removing and firmly reseating the wireless card.  If you can leave the antennas attached when doing that, it will save you the hassle of having to reattach those tiny antennas. Check the maintenance and service guide (chapter 4, pp 67-68) for your notebook, for how to remove and replace the wireless card. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02842252 Always remove the battery and unplug the notebook from A/C power when working inside of it. Then I would install a newer driver for that model card directly from Intel...the 2nd one down on the left is for W7 x64. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/23491/Intel-PROSet-Wireless-Software-and-Drivers-for-Windo...

My Compaq Presario CQ50 Notebook PC can't connect now to wifi because the wireless network button located on the right of powr button above the keyword won't turn on. It was working before. I know when it worked because the amber color of the button would change to blue upon pressing it. The button is amber when wireless network is off. And the button is blue when wireless network is on. Tocay, the button's color stll changes to blue when I press it, but whenever I lift my finger the blue color would change back to amber. And I could see wireless networks appear when my finger remains pressing the button and it's blue. And upon lifting my finger and the blue light changes again to amber, all wireless networks would disappear. So it's just a matter of making that button hold the blue color. Is there a shortcut key to turn the wifi connectivity on Compaq Presario CQ50 Notebook PC? If none, can you please tell me what to do? Thank you so much in advance.

Hi,

I have an Acer TravelMate 370 and i'm having problem in using its wireless connectivity function. The hardware is okay same as the driver. It is just that if I try to turn on the launch key for wireless LAN the LED doesn't lit up. And even if i turned on the wireless radio from windows network driver nothing happens. I still can't connect to our wireless network. And it always says that I should turn on the device before I could use it. I really need your help on this. Thanks a lot
 

A:Couldn't turn on Acer travelmate 370 wifi connectivity button

first off ring up acer tech support and see if they can fix it, maybe a defective wifi module (im assuming its inbuilt)
does it pick up any signal at all? maybe try another wifi network; or is it just dead? can you dig around bios and see if there's any thing to enable regarding the wifi, also same thing inside device manager

Hello forum people,

I have the following problem on my Toshiba Satellite R850 running Win7 64bit: I decided to change the wireless adapter so I can connect to the 5GHz wifi network my router provides which wasnt possible on the Atheros wireless adapter it came with. I changed it to a Intel Wireless AC 3160- the physical change went quick and without problems and while the adapter is basically working now the problem I'm facing now is that the F8-hotkey function to de-/activate the Wifi and Bluetooth is no longer working. When I press the hotkey button all the different hotkey combinations show up on the upper part of the screen, but now there's only F1-F7 and F9, F8 just went missing. Does anyone have any idea how to get it back?

Thanks in advance and take care

Hi - how do I find out if my PC can connect to wifi rather than with a cable?  And if it cannot now, can I download an update to enable wifi?  MY PC model is p6-2050ix Thanks

A:does my PC have WiFi capability?

That is a desktop and likely does not have the hardware for wireless. Most people use the wired ethernet port on desktops. You can't just download software to make it work you need the hardware. 2 options: 1. a pci wireless network adapter and antenna which would require opening the case and inserting a card into an open expansion slot; or, 2. a usb wireless dongle. The first option would likely perform a bit better but they make good, cheap wireless usb dongles and all you have to do is pop it in a usb port, maybe (not certainly needed) install a driver and you have wifi. Post back and let us know what you want to do.

Hi Bob and welcome to Eightforums.

Since you have a laptop you are, when it comes to replacing hardware, very restricted to options the laptop manufacteror is allowing. Laptop hardware is often rebranded. That means that 'ordinary' hardware will mostlikely not work.

I'd advise you to ask Asus this question. They made the product, so they know what you can and cannot do with the laptop.

Goodluck.

Greetz,

Forgive me for not knowing the proper terms, but am newer to the Wifi game - have only had it since February.

Our Gateway Laptop has always recognized our Wifi signal until a week ago. Now whenever it goes to sleep or is shut off it does not recognize that we have internet. Instead of the 5 bar icon showing; it has a red x. The only way I can get it to connect is to reboot. I have done a system refresh and also tried to update the driver (Realtek RTL8188CE) but it says I have the most up-to-date version.

This is extremely frustrating! Does anyone have any ideas?
 

A:Wifi Capability being turned off

"Troubleshoot problems" (right click the network icon) can fix the majority of issues without needing a reboot. It will turn off the adapter and re-initialize the drivers.

On portable devices the wireless adapter can be manually turned off for most devices. It is usually a Fn key that is used to turn wireless off.
Wireless can be disabled and enabled, within the list of network connections (Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network Connections).
I know it is frustrating and I don't have a proper solution for you. Especially when you say you have updated your drivers. But the above may help in keeping you from having to completely restart your machine.

One thought does come to mind though. That is checking to see if the wireless is set to turn off when the PC goes in sleep mode. Keeping wireless active could keep it from bugging out.

Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Options > Change Plan Settings
Change advanced power settings
Wireless Adapter settings > Power Savings Mode > Setting:
There is a choice between (Performance, Low, Med, and Max)
My desktop never sleeps and wireless is set to performance. So I have no experience with the setting, I just know it is there.

The wireless icon on my HP Envy 17" laptop keeps disappearing.  I am referring to the icon that is typically at the bottom right of the task bar.  When this occurs, I always check the Network & Internet settings - the Wi-Fi option is completely gone.  At times, the Wi-Fi will be available and connects without an issue.  Then I may leave the computer setting for a while and when I come back the Wi-Fi option is completely gone, as if the computer isn't built to accept Wi-Fi. This has been an ongoing issue since just after I purchased the laptop (purchased in June 2015).  I tried to resolve this with HP but everything they checked didn't seem to have any issues.  I know they ran a hard drive check and that turned out fine.  I've researched a lot of forums and decided to try a new hard drive.  I replaced the hard drive about a month ago.  After that, until a few days ago, the Wi-Fi worked perfectly.  Now it has started disappearing again.  I've seen a lot of people have had this issue, but has anyone actually gotten a resolution?  At this point I am way past regretting the decision to purchase an HP laptop.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Ad-Hoc requires that you restart the session each time.

Connectify pro has an auto start option that does this but it's a paid version, connectify lite is free but I'm not sure if has auto start.

Sporadically, the laptop will be unable to detect any wifi sources, and it doesn't resolve itself until I restart the laptop. This is troublesome as of course my laptop can take a while to restart, and would be very inconvenient at work. This has happened at different locations and with different wifi sources. If anyone has any idea of any permanent solution (apart from buying a new one), do let me know!

So I have already tried the solutions such as boot up the pc and press shift and such to get a menu and then download somthing on a usb and get into an administrator account.The Administration account I can at least log onto as it's not password protected but I still can't turn on Wi-Fi which basically defeats my whole purpose of using the computer as I use it for gaming. So regarding me not being able to log into my actual account, I've tried resetting my password multiple times without success. I think it's due to the fact that I am not able to connect to any Wi-Fi spots (which I assume is because of safe mode which I can't turn off for some reason) And that brings me to my next point, of I can't connect to Wi-Fi die to safe mode. I have tried to turn off safe mode in the settings but when I press the button for it to turn off it slides back over to the on side. Please let me know if you have any other solutions that I have not tried yet, Thanks !
