Laptop wont connect to wifi. Wifi key light is always orange...

Q: Laptop wont connect to wifi. Wifi key light is always orange...

I have an HP Pavilion g6. This laptop used to run fine with no issues. Now no matter what I do I cannot get the computer to connect to any wireless networks. I can still connect via direct LAN eithernet cable. There is only a LAN Network symbol where the Wifi symbol used to be. The wireless key's light remains solid orange and does not change. No message appears when it is pressed. The divice manager only lists the Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller and does not list any Ralink driver as it should. I have tried everything. Reseting does nothing. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium.

Preferred Solution: Laptop wont connect to wifi. Wifi key light is always orange...

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Check if you have Wireless adapter under network adapters in Device Manager.

So I have an HP Elitebook 850 G3, and when I hit the wifi button to turn off/on the wifi it turns on Airplane mode, and the light stays white. Is there a way to get the light to turn orange? I installed the HP Hotkey support, and that didn't fix it.

I have an HP Pavilion G6 and for some reason the Wifi button is stuck Orange.I even swapped out the hardware and Uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for the network card. Nothing works. I have looked into all the forums  Please help!


Hi: Does the wireless card show up in the device manager at all? If not, and you are running on Windows 7, you may need to install this software and use it to turn on the wireless card... This package provides the HP Connection Manager for the supported notebook models and operating systems. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp54501-55000/sp54945.exe

So, i got a new laptop and im having issues with the wireless WiFi connection. So my laptop finds everyother wifi signal except mine. Ive tried researching and nothing has helped so this is my last resort. Ive even tried deleting my WiFi card and reinstalling and it hasnt helped. Ive tried the HP network check and it says i have no problems with my wireless connection. Is there a way to fix this or am i just going to have to get a new WiFi card?

A:Laptop Wont Connect To WiFi

Hi: Most HP consumer model notebooks only work on the 2.4 GHz wireless network band. Are you trying to connect to a 5.0 GHz wireless network? If so, that is most likely the problem. You will need to turn on your 2.4 Ghz wireless band on your router in order to connect wirelessly.

Hello my friend has a laptop that will not connect or show any wireless networks. The wireless Icon in the toolbar just has an red x over it. He says he has tried to re install drivers from the manufacturer website but it did not help. I am not sure if he needs to uninstall the ones he has on his laptop at the moment before installing the newer ones or not cause I am sure he did not uninstall them the first time he tried to install new drivers. We attempted to trouble shoot with the windows internal troubleshooting tool for networks but was greeted with the message in the link below. What else should he try.

So last year I lived in the dorms and none of my friends had problems getting internet to their laptops. I however had to call the tech guy in my dorm to come figure out what was wrong. He said it happens all the time and somehow my computer isnt recognizing something. So it took him a total of probably 3 minutes and he was done and my internet was working.

Since then my computer died on me and I ended up having to reinstall windows (back in September), which you guys helped me with (thanks!). But now I'm having the same problem with internet on campus! My computer will connect to our home wifi. It will connect to the school's library wifi. But when I go into one of the main buildings it just wont pick it up. It says there's no connectivity at all and I KNOW there is. I see people on facebook all class period.

Everytime I try to go to the tech guys for that building they have a huge line or are super busy and can't help me. So I guess my question is do you guys know what the problem could be? I really would be forever grateful if you could figure it out or even have an idea. If you need any other information I'd be glad to give it to you, just let me know.

Oh - I have a Dell Inspiron 1520.

A:Laptop wont connect to campus wifi

1. Most such wireless host devices have a web page that can be accessed with a standard web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer). Check to see if the campus has such a web page.

2. If that doesn't work, try to ping the wireless host; under Microsoft Windows, click Start ? Run,
type "%COMSPEC% /k ping WIRELESSHOSTADDRESS" and press [Enter].

3.If that doesn't work, check network addresses with Start ? Run,
type "%COMSPEC% /k ipconfig /all" and press [Enter].

3a. The wireless adapter network address will normally begin with the same three number groups as the wireless host web page; e.g., if the wireless host web page is, then the wireless adapter should be something like

Hello, i know a lot about the dell xps m1330, especially when it runs xp.
However i dont know much about windows 7.
I know the wifi in the laptop works, i know the laptop has no issues.
I know this because i switched my hard drive from my 1330 to this laptop which is also a 1330...connects and works fine.
Wifi IS turned on
In device manager the driver is ok no exclamation marks anywhere

When i try and connect with the ethernet i get identifying no network access, then it says currently connected to unidentified network, no network access! You cannot browse.

So that being said it must be in the setting with windows 7.
I uninstalled and reinstalled the wifi driver it did not make any difference.
I also tried using a ethernet connection and it would not connect either.
When i use the win 7 trubleshooter it states a network cable is not properly plugged in or may be broken.

Remeber this laptop functions fine with my hard drive in it with windows xp.

Thanks if you can help

Hi Kentuckynet,

My name is Mohammed from DELL social media outreach team

In response to your recent query I would suggest you to go the DELL website update the chipset drivers and wireless drivers .You can do it by clicking on the link given below


Once it’s done click on start->Run-> type CMD type the command ipconfig then press enter and check whether you see any numbers in default gateway if you can see that then type the following command ping then the numbers.If you are not able to get reply after you ping might have issues with windows 7 .Please reply back with the findings.

Thanks & regards

About a week ago, our cable internet connection went out. Before I had a chance to reboot the modem & router, my 11 year old decided to completely reset the router to factory settings! Ugh! This caused several issues: my home network is now gone, only a unsecured factory network is available. When I try to plug my laptop into the router via ethernet cord (in order to login to router and setup secure network) my computer will not recognize the router and won't connect to internet. I tried troubleshooting with my cable provider and they say it's in my computer (IP address will not reset) and he recommended I replace my network card. However, today when I brought my laptop to work, it will instantly recognize the wifi at work. So is it really my network card that is causing issues? Please help, I'm desperate and not tech too tech savvy!

it seems to be doing different things -
sometimes it finds the network sometimes it doesnt (rare)
sometimes when trying to connect it says its trying then just goes back to detected network (click connect to connect...)
sometimes its fails saying the signal was lost and there may be interference
she said before we tried everything it may have said it could not renew IP

shes now just said before she rang me the red X was gone from the wifi tray icon and had the yellow triangle..

Hi all - I could do with some help here.

Since cleaning up my daughters laptop, it won't connect to her wifi router (it did at one time apparently!)

I bring it home to my house and bingo! it connects fine.

My router is set to WPA2. Hers is set to WPA-PSK, so I set my router to WPA and again it wont connect as at her place. When viewing the available networks it constantly cycles "Acquiring Network Address" on and off.

I suppose simplest answer is to configure her router to WPA2, but I didnt want to do that in case connections to other things get messed up. Why wont her laptop make a connection to WPA???

Hi - weve had a PC built and now we have brought it home it wont connect to our network. If we hard wire it to the router it works but when we try wifi it picks up the name of our router as an available network but is unable to connect and the troubleshooter can not seem to fix the issue. We have a laptop, sky box, ipad, iphones and apple tvs round the house all connected without error so not sure why the PC is different? I originally took it back to the shop who built it and told them that i thought the wireless software wasnt working so they unistalled and reinstalled it then showed me it in the shop working they ran though a few videos on youtube etc to show me it didnt buffer or anything so now im really confused. Any ideas please? (the pc is in the same room as the router about 12 ft away)

Few weeks back I upgraded my router to a dual band not realizing my laptop only worked with 2.4ghz g/n spec. Because I was having an issue with another network in my neighborhood causing connection to the internet to be spotty. I fixed the problem by purchasing an external usb dual band dongle. Only problem I have now is there's a blue led that flashes letting you know your both connected and how fast the connection is by flashing faster.

My family and I live with my wife's uncle, so our bedroom also serves as living room, including tv and office. With my laptop being right next to me. Needless to say, this flashing blue light is driving me nuts when I'm trying to get to sleep. So, I'm wondering, can I wrap some electrical tape around it without affecting signal reception or transmission? I would consider just pulling the USB dongle out when I'm ready to sleep, but afraid I might damage the dongle and mess up the port by constantly plugging and unplugging the dongle. Sorry I've rambled on so much! Chalk it up to me not getting enough sleep!!!

2x android phone
2x winxp laptops (sp2, sp3)
i can connect all of these devices using the default settings and key except for the 2 winxp laptops.

i can provide more information if anyone thinks it will help, and thanks in advance for any ideas.

Install SP3 on the way-out-of-date machine.

For the one that already has SP3 ...

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Identify your network and also show ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

I'm having problems connecting to a new modem I got from AT&T (AT&T7550). It was a replacement because I had the another one from them to long. However, I'm have problems getting on my network and I had no problems get to two desktop, a tablet, IPad and 2 PSP. But for some reason my laptop XPS M140 is having problems connecting. The first thing I did was to up-date the drives from the dell website, then I uninstalled them 2x, even tho the hardware was saying it was fine. ...Then I have switch from the Intel wifi manager and back to windows wifi manager and then I removed all the info in the change preferred networks. The I took the card out and reinstalled it back in my laptop. But it keeps stating "Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of availble networks and try to connect again." Now I did what they asked and the funny thing is that when it wont connect the wifi light will go out on its own without me turning it off myself manually. Now I think I may need to replace my wifi card, however, in the device Manager for the network has no problems. Oh by the way I can connect to the internet using my ethernet cable with no problems.

I have looked up several things on my pavilion g6that could be wrong with this notebook. It's product # is c2n47ua#ABA while the model # g6-2249wm. I've checked the Wi-Fi adapter, it's working properly. While I also uninstalled and reinstalled back in. I've refreshed the computer it allowed me to connect to the internet and then dropped the connection. Now I am factory resetting the computer but I'm not sure if it's going to do anything. If anybody has anything to help me solve this it would be greatly appreciated

Sitting here at my desk in my truck with one of my computers connected to a hot spot, but IE won't connect. Just times out waiting for a reply. I can ping the IP with no loss. I have turned off my AVG Pro Firewall and Resident Shield. And done everything I know to do.

So I booted this computer, connected instantly, and sent this begging plee for help.

Both my computers run XP64 SP2, IE7, and use windows zero to control my connections.

I tell you what - just to say thank you - be the first to solve my problem before 5pm est on 2/12/09 and I will send $5.00 to your PayPal account.

A:IE wont connect despite wifi connection

A little more info:

I am a networking idiot, I know just enough to set them up.

After a reboot or two and some fiddling I got both computers on the internet, but then lost my LAN connection between the two computers. Another reboot and I can get one computer to see the other's shared files but not visa versa. The combination of connections seems to change randomly, which each reboot. Maybe it is an ip adress conflict, I have no idea.

Computer A
Wifi ip
Lan ip

Computer B
Wifi ip
Lan ip

And I still offer the first person to provide me with a solution $5, through PayPal, just for helping me out.
