Hi Jadewoman

On the left hand side of this laptop there is a wireless switch. This will turn it back on!

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-CS110D and recently just shut down my computer to let some Windows updates install. After turning my computer back on my wireless stopped working. My wireless switch is turned on and its green... its able to turn on the bluetooth but not the wireless. I've tried diagnosing the problem but my laptop just says that the wireless is not turned on.

I've looked around online and it seems like there's a problem with the updates. I've tried the suggestion here:

http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-28820-wireless-switch-problem

where it says to delete the third party LAN in the registry but I do not see any third party (or I just don't know what they look like)

Another suggestion I found was a system recovery but I'm iffy to do a full system recovery.. does anybody have any detailed instructions to just recover my wireless adaptor driver or any other suggestions?

Thanks.

I've read several posts here that come close to my issue but don't describe it exactly.

Yesterday on my personal laptop (Dell E1505 running XP SP3), I got a message box saying something about port forwarding and that I wouldn't be able to get to my website, or something like that. Unfortunately, I didn't pay much attention to the message and dismissed it. Now, I can't get to the internet using wireless. Here are some details:
Another laptop connects to my wireless network and the internet just fine
All was working fine on the Dell until I got that message
I've checked the event log and can't find anything relevant around the time of the message
Connecting to the network/internet with ethernet cable works fine.
I'm definitely connected to my wireless network because I was able to open shared files on another PC
Other, likely non-related issues:

I'm having a little problem with the hard drive and will need to run chkdsk
Sometimes I get an error regarding the display adapter driver.
Thanks.

I'm running a Toshiba Satellite L300 with Windows Vista Home Premium x64 and a T6400 processor. I haven't had any connection problems untill now. The problem I'm having now is Windows cannot find any wireless networks. I can connect through a Ethernet cable but not wirelessly. Another thing that bothers me is that I can't enable the network connection in the network connections folder. I don't know why this is happening suddenly as I haven't made any changes involving my network settings at all. I've looked it up on the internet but couldn't find anything that would help me. One solution that looked promising was: no wireless networks were found in range error

That didn't work though because my "event log" service was already set to Automatic so my case must be different. All help is appreciated and thanks a lot.

I can be on my Mac for hours, and when I turn on my desktop PC, the Mac gets kicked off the wireless network within minutes.

Is it the router?

I'm using an Acer Aspire 5710 laptop (see my computer specs for more information) and I had it set up nicely and it was all working fine... But I lent it to someone and now I've got it back the wireless doesn't work. I'm using the Acer eNet management and it says there are no wireless networks. I can connect to my network using the same model of laptop, so it's not that.

When I use windows to diagnose the problem it says my wireless card has been disabled and there should be a switch on the outside to enable it (which there isn't) or a function key combination (which I can't find). The wireless card is built in to the laptop.

I would be extremely grateful for any help.

I have a HP Pavillian laptop that has built in wireless capability. A month ago, I installed a Verizon wireless pc card (slide-in) and the software, so that I could go online when away from home. I decided I didn't like the service so I cancelled it and uninstalled the VZ software. Now I can't receive a wireless signal at the library. It will not allow me to enable the WLAN assistant so any signals nearby are not seen.

What should I do?

OK...here's my situation. At home, I have a wireless network set up for my3 computers. At work, we have a network set up for our 3-4 computers also. I use a laptop for work, but I bring it home at nights.

At work, my computer is part of the "WORKGROUP" network. But my home network is "something else" network. I want to be able to have access to both networks depending on where I am. I want to be able to access my shared folders at home.

How can I do this.

Also, I have my printer (HP CP2025dn) hooked up to my router (Netgear WNDR3800). I thought that this would just bypass the whole network thing and make it available when I connect wirelessly to my router...but my laptop can't find the printer.

Thoughts?

I'm tearing my hair out !
(And there's not that much of it.)

I have a set of laptops (used in a school classroom). They connect to the LAN via wireless .. or, at least, they used to.

Specifically: Toshiba SP2100 with D-Link AirPlus G+ wireless PCMCIA cards.

After trying many, many things:

- Boot SP2100 from XP CD (SP2)
- Don't fix any of the driver issues
- Plug wireless card in
- Cancel plug&play
- Install correct driver with d/loaded Setup_v204.exe
- WZC managing wireless connection
- Sees wireless network (WEP) but
- Won't connect automatically (after setup wizard)
- Won't connect manually
BUT ..
- Boot into "safe mode with networking" and wireless works faultlessly

I have a printer (with wireless capability) wired to desktop (Windows XP) and a wireless laptop (Windows 7). My question is, can the printer be connected wirelessly to the laptop as well as wired to the desktop, or does everything have to be wireless?
Another question: If I want to share files between the two computers, do they both have to be the same operating system? (one is Windows XP and the other is Windows 7)
 

A:Solved: Wireless Laptop/Wireless Desktop (via wireless adapter)/ printer

I would guess that the printer can be connected by ethernet and wireless, but I've never had one with both capabilities so I don't really know.

I once had a printer that worked OK connected to a network plus connected to another computer by USB. Even so, that may depend on the particular printer.

There may be two operating systems that cannot file share with each other but I don't know which ones that might be. Windows XP and 7 are fine sharing with each other (but not claiming that nobody has had any problems).

I bought a wireless router and ran a cable from wired router to the new wireless router. Evidentually piggybacking like this seems to be working just fine. My question now is accessing the wired computers thru the wireless system, or any other way. I was told I can not access the wired network via the wireless network. I assume it is true.

Since all ports are used in Leviton Gateway, I would have to physically unplug a wired port and plug a wire into the wireless netbook.

Hi there community. Newbie here so please be gentle.

I'm trying to setup a home network using a Desktop PC (which has a wireless card installed) running on Win XP SP3 and my laptop which is on running on Win 7 Home Premium.

Both PC and Laptop are accessing the net via my Netcomm NB504 Wireless router which in turn is connected to the cable modem.

For some reason, I cannot view both computers on the same workgroup from either the laptop or the PC. I've checked common things like ensuring workgroups are the same. Both adminstrator names are the same (although neither have passwords on them). Also ensured firewalls are switched off and checked that Netbios is enabled over TCP/IP on the adapter properties.

any ideas? Its driving me mad. The last time I setup a workgroup at home was several years ago using a Ethernet cable (wiring reversed) between the 2 pc's which worked first time every time... Not sure if this is router related or pc related. Any assistance greatly appreciated. Cheers

i'm having serious trouble setting up a wireless network in my house.
my sister and i both have laptops that we would like to use with wireless internet.

the computer (desktop) i'm on has a wireless card in it. i keep trying to set up a network through the network connection wizard, but it never works. i tried doing it manually, i tried doing it with the USB drive, nothing.

what could i possibly be doing wrong? i know for sure that my wireless network card in my laptop is compatible with the card in this one, but i'm not sure about my sisters.

any help?

The specs for my "main" computer are below. I would like to network (wirelessly) my old computer. Specs for it are: 450 MHz P2, 128 MB Ram, Win98 SE. My ISP is cable broadband. I've been looking at equipment, mostly at Walmart. (Yeah, I know, but it's cheap, and I get instant gratification.) The local one is carrying Linksys and Belkin. I'm thinking I don't need to spend extra on "Speedboost", I'm just looking for wireless G.

When I look at the Linksys, the router requirements states a minimum processor speed of 200 MHz. The wireless PCI card states a minimum processor speed of 500 MHz, and 128 MB of RAM. (Doing the math, my old computer doesn't quite measure up, right?) The Belkin gear doesn't really state much of any requirements, other than a minimum RAM of 4 MB.

Which type of gear, in your opinions, is superior? I would probably like to go with the LinkSys, but do I dare ignore their 500 MHz lower limit? Do you think I am overachieving by trying to set this network up in the first place? A plus for the Belkin is that router and card run about $75, compared to about $100 for the Linksys. I would greatly appreciate any input. I've done some googling, but would feel more secure with the input of real people such as yourselves.

Hello friends
i have a strange problem that i faced today.
I have a Trendnet 300 Mbps wireless Access point.
And some of my clients laptop was unable to detect the wireless device. While Others were using happily
I am using the wireless device in Wireless AP mode with WPA enabled and channel was set to 13
Now i changed the channel to 10. All of sudden everything was fine. all the client with problem can now see the wireless device and connect to it.

Today Again. In different location, I came along with DLINK Wireless Router whose channel was set to 11 and some clients have the same problem while scanning there was no wireless AP shown. I was smart this time. I just changed the Channel of AP to 9 and Bang everything was fine.

So i have a typical question over here. Why some laptop doesn't detect the wireless AP while the channel is set to more than 10 ??
Thankyou for your input

Hi, thanks for reading this.

I live in an economy apartment (fancy way of saying my credit sucks and I live in a hotel, hahaha). I have two wireless cards: an Airlink101 802.11g Wireless PCI Adapter and a Netgear WG311v3 802.11g Wireless PCI Adapter. The Airlink Adapter will acquire and hold an IP address (obviously, as I'm online posting this now); however, it's *pitifully* slow. I got the Netgear card yesterday, installed it, and it worked great. However, a little while into internetting with it, my connection dropped. It will not acquire an IP address.

Yes, the profile name is a joke.

A:Solved: Problem with wireless networking, did all I could think of. In dire need of h

I would certainly disable one connection when using the other. And bridging those two will, at best, cause confusion.

Make sure that only one wireless utility is running. For example, when using the Netgear card you use the Netgear utility or Windows XP's WZC; make sure the other one is not running.

Did you use the proper WINSOCK repair? If not, do it now ...

(From a JohnWill post)

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2 or SP3.

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

hi all, seems that i need some help again

Im having problems with my wireless internet. Last night my wireless connection just shut off, and when i tried to reconnect it couldn't detect the network. I tried resetting the wireless card, turning off wireless and starting again, and also turning encryption off.

Next i opened a wireless utility that came with the card and i could see my network, but i could not connect to it, also windows would still not detect it.

Finally i changed the wireless channel, from what I've used the past year (13) to 1, and it connected. After testing more the wireless is detected on channels 1-8 but not the rest + the signal is also weak, i have checked for interference but cant find any. Any suggestions on what could cause this or a fix?
Another issue ive been having is with an xbox 360 that i just got, the issue is with xbox live, it only connects when i turn off the firewall on the router. Ive tried port fowarding but it still wont work.

I use Comcast as my ISP. Originally I had a cable modem with a ethernet cable coming from it and going into a wall connection. That wall connection is hooked up to a ethernet connection to a bed room in my house. The cable from that connection goes into a Linksys/Cisco E2000 wireless router. That worked.

I now have a new desktop next to my cable modem that needs a wired connection. I replaced the cable from the cable modem with a new cable going into the WAN port of a Linksys WRT54G wireless router. I took the cable that used to be going into the cable modem and placed into one of the four LAN ports in the WRT54G. I have a cable from the new desktop to one of the LAN ports in thee WRT54G. The desktop can now get online.

When I hook up the ethernet cable that is in my bedroom directly to a computer I can get online. When I hook it up to Internet port on the E2000 when I connect to my wireless network I cannot get online.

What do I need to do so I can get online via my wireless network?

Hi, i am a complete networking/computer newbie so as a warning to everyone who would potentially answer this question try to keep the response in the simplest terms possible for me, thanks.

I have a desktop, and a laptop, i have a wireless network setup for my laptop through my belkin wireless g 802.11g router.I have yahoo dsl wired directly to my computer that is wired to the belkin router which we will call computer A.

I received a used desktop computer that i am setting up in a different area of the house, which came with a netgear WGR 614 wireless router. This computer (computer B) is too far away to hardwire to the other computer, so i attempted to set up a wireless network between the 2 routers, because otherwise computer B would have no other way to connect to the internet.

I put the installation disk in computer B for the netgear router, and selected the option to connect it using existing router (not using netgear's router as the main router) and it told me to use advanced setup, which resulted in no help whatsoever.

So what i'm asking is there any way that i can connect these two computers through the existing network using the wireless routers in place. (connect the netgear on computer B wirelessly to my belkin on computer A)

Environment : Standard wireless network router connected to a shared Lexmark ZX52 printer.
The ZX52 is bidirectional so as we all know, to make it work as a shared printer on wireless you have to turn off the "bidirectional" feature.
Problem is, after a while the printer decides ink is low, whether it really is or not (you'd need full bidirectionality for this to work as it should.) Then the printer gets into a sulk and refuses to print. Rebooting, clearing the print spooler etc sometimes works but sometimes we've messed around for DAYS until the printer decided to work again - not really knowing why or which tactic was the one that really worked.
Help! Does anyone know how to make a ZX52 behave reliably in a WiFi environment where bidirectional comms are not possible?

Seriously, WiFi is half-duplex, and i've had other issues with wireless print servers not supporting bi-directional printers.

Hello,


PC --- wireless --- Netgear WL router --- DSL modem --- Internet


This is an old PC with Windows XP with SP2 and Netgear WG111v3 USB dongle. The PC was connected over wireless to a Netgear Router (sorry dont remember the model number - I will mention it a bit later since I am typing this from a laptop not near the above setup).

As usual, everything was working fine, when suddenly one day, the PC would not connect over wireless anymore. I tried re-entering the password manually on the WG111 GUI, but it did not work. I even removed the security on the Netgear router so that no password is needed. But it still did not connect.
Meanwhile I was able to connect to that same Netgear router from this laptop before and after removing the password (after making necessary config changes on the network setup on the laptop).

When I did ' ipconfig' on the PC, it would show that the IP addr was 0.0.0.0.
When I checked the ' Attached Devices' on the Netgear router, I would see the MAC address of the PC, but it would not show the IP addr and the PC name.

When I tried to go into Settings -> Control Panel -> Networking -> Wireless adapter -> Protocols -> IP, the properties button was grayed out. When I clicked on the 'Install' button, I got the following error:

A:[SOLVED] Wireless networking works only from Safe Mode

I'm guessing that some other device (more exactly it's driver) is conflicting with the driver for the Netgear usb wireless adapter. It works in safe mode with networking because in that mode only the network driver is loaded, which means no other third-party driver can interfere with it.

The offending driver may not be a hardware driver. Third-party firewalls and antivirus software also install drivers, as do some CD-burning applications.

Just purchased and installed a WRT300N to replace a DLink wireless router that was having some performance problems. The DLink worked ok except it had lousy range and speed to the Internet. But it worked and I was able to use it with an IBM NetVista desktop and 2 IBM ThinkPad’s to connect to the Internet and to share an HP Network ready printer that was plugged into Port 4 of the router.

With the Linksys, the Desktop is wired directly to Port 1 of the router and that worked fine right out of the box. I had some problems connecting with the laptops so with some help from the Linksys call centre I was able to get them connected to the net using the EasyLink Connect download tool. All was good it seemed. However the next day I went to print from one of the laptops and it could not find the printer, the home network but could still get out to the Internet. Same with the other Laptop and the desktop. Another call to Linksys support and he had me verifying the router config (all looked good) but when we tried to ping the laptops from the desktop, we got nothing. Time outs. Same with the laptops to the desktop. So, net result is everything works fine going out to the Internet, but the internal home LAN is not working. I only use Windows Firewall and wireless WEP security is set on each device (and obviously working as all can get to the Net). The tech said it must be a Windows problem or an IBM problem and he quickly passed the buck and closed the call. Not impressed! Everything w... Read more

Does anyone have any instruction on how to make this work? I am tired of believing what they tell us because everytime we turn around there is something else we need to buy.

Hello,

Issues is as follows;

I have a HP i7 OS Windows Vista that was hard lined through ourNetgear WGR614 Wireless-G Router, with my xbox360. Was able to network them together and stream videos, view pictures etc. Recently my wife decided she no longer liked the 15 foot black ethernet cable running through the middle of the floor so I bought and installed a HP Wireless 802.11 b/g/n PCIe Card. Had some issues originally (was not able to access the internet, unknown if the xbox was able to stream at that point), which were fixed (changed from channel 11 to channel 10), although now that it is working I am not able to stream video or view pictures.

Obviously something is different, but I am still able to access the sames files on the computer from the xbox (and the computer shows the xbox in the network screen), I can find all the same folders with all the same movies and pictures although when I select one to play the error of unplayable format appears and I am unable to play the movie or view the picture.

I have never really used the Windows Media Extender on the xbox, before, I would just access all videos through My Xbox - Videos - PC - Video Folder - Movies. I did try setting that up though, but after asking me to adjust my firewall settings, it seems to time out and I cannot get past that point. I switched between Norton and window firewall and still was not able to have the extender complete the process.

Hi TSG guys and girls, it's been a while! Good to see the forums are still buzzing about with activity. Anyways, I'm about to run an ethernet cable downstairs and had a question about the cable I should use, then I remembered I had another question about networking and another and another and so I have this post.

Right now I have the basic Actiontec router hooked up to FiOS internet. I have a number of devices that connect wirelessly over 802.11g and a few that are wired to the router. I primarily use the network for internet access, however I do push files around from time to time.

1. If I buy an Airport Extreme to get wireless N throughout my house, do I just run an ethernet cable between the two routers (the Actiontec router is necessary for some of the TV features and so it must remain connected to the internet)? Will I be able to share files and see devices connected to either of these networks?

If you have lost your wireless connection (Wi-Fi) and pressing the wireles button on your laptop doesn't fix it, do this: Download and install HP Connection Manager. After 8 hours of screwing with this I am so happy to report my Wi-Fi has been turned back on.  The antenna button did not work.  It only turned the Bluetooth on and off.  My wireless connection had a red X on it and the troubleshooter told me straight up that my "Wireless capability is turned off", but gave me no way to turn it back on.  In Windows Mobility Center the Wireless Network clearly showed it was off, but the button to turn it on was greyed out.  I updated the BIOS and wireles drivers, but that did nothing.  Then I downloaded and installed HP Connection Manager and rebooted.  I opened up HP CM and there was a button that showed the wireless was off.  I pushed it and the wireless turned on.  That easy.  Or rather, after hours and hours of pain, it turned on.  My next step would have been to go through the BIOS to see if somehow from there the Wi-Fi had been disabled, but I did not need to go that far. Good luck people.  Hopefully this thread will save you some time.

I have had problems connecting wirelessly on this notebook for months. The FN + F12 keys no longer turn wifi on and off. I have download and installed latest driver from HP and Ralink (Mediatek) websites. In Device Manager the Bluetooth Controller has yellow exclamation mark. Please can you advise what to try next.

A:wireless capability is turned off

try a restore to a date before the issue
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Restore PC to an Earlier Date & Time

Go Start>>All Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>System Restore
Click in the radio button Choose a different restore point
Click Next
put a tick in Show more restore points
Pick a Date before this happened
Click Next
This should restore the PC to that time & date

you may need to use safemode to do the restore. As the PC starts keep tapping F8 - a menu will appear - choose safemode

Hello,

I'm using Lenovo Z570 laptop. (Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter)

Problem:- Can't switch on wifi. The on/off switch is grayed out. While troubleshooting, it says, " wireless capability is turned off".

Solutions Tried:- Re-installed drivers provided by lenovo's website.
Re-installed drivers by windows update.
Reset settings in Bios to default values.
Yes the physical switch is on and the indicator light is glowing.
Fn+ F5 just toggles on/off airplane mode.
Disabled the option so that power management doesn't switches off wifi to save battery.
Other numerous solutions on internet.

The wifi worked flawlessly in windows 7. I even used it as a hotspot (via cmd method).

Someone save me..... Life without wifi seems Dull. :'(

A:Wireless capability is turned off

Try doing a full uninstall of the device and driver in Device manager. Then reboot and see if Windows 8 will find the device on its own. If it does, then you should be able to go into the desktop, open device manager and see the device listed as functioning.

I have and Asus N50Vseries.
My kids have been playing with my computer and I cannot connect to the internet.
If I go into Windows Network Diagnostics it says to turn on wireless capability.
It says via a switch at the side or front or a function key combination.
I cannot find were this is.
I think it is a function key.
F2 has a blue signal looking icon on it, but if I press FN + F2 it
does not seem to do anything.

Please Help Anyone?

Thanks, Becs

A:Wireless capability turned off ?

Welcome!

There is often a switch on the side, bottom, or front of the laptop that turns the card on or off.

Also go into Device Manager, find your card, and make sure it is enabled from the right-click menu.

Three weeks ago my computer was infected with the google redirect virus and Microsoft Security Essentials could not be reinstalled or opened. Virus removal programs did not manage to remove it until Microsoft support told me to first run rkill. Then they gave a series of virusscanners and fixes to be run and the computer seemed to be itself. I changed from Firefox to Chrome in the hope that browser would be saver. Unfortunately, a week ago, my computer acted strange again, this time by turning the battery loading indicator of and more inconveniently, the wireless lan. By using the on/off wireless lan button, the wireless lan did not work. I restarted in safe mode with networking and that worked. So I turned off most of the start-up processes and the wireless lan runs until the computer has been to sleep. After that only a restart helps the wireless lan to be turned on. I have run several anti-virus programs and in the beginning two trojans were found (sorry, I do not know which because I happily thought that would solve the problem) but did not bring a solution. Microsoft Security Essentials keeps on running this time so Microsoft support does not give help by email this time. I have reset the router to fabric installation but still the problem stays.

ive got a toshiba satellite p755-s5320 windows 7 home premium 64 bit. laptop has ran fine for a while and then out of nowhere i cant use my wifi anymore. i dont know if someone deleted some drivers or other software maybe while i was at work..no clue. normally i would boot up and connect to the internet automatically but now it says "not connected. no connections are available" btw all the other tech in the house is working and connecting fine. my xbox, phone,and other laptops all connect fine so i have internet i just cant connect to it from my toshiba. windows network diagnostics says the problem found is "Wireless capability is turned off". my fn keys i dont believe are working because they wont turn on my wifi switch and the hot key thats lit which is supposed to toggle my wifi switch isnt working either. if i touch the hotkey it just flashes slow one time but nothing happens. actually there for a little while when i would touch my wifi hotkey to try to turn on my wifi it would launch "windows media player" lol. i did a system restore and set my laptop to back before it messed up and that didnt fix it. im not very tech savy but i think somebody deleted some software maybe some drivers or somehow reassigned my keys on my keyboard and hot keys. but either way if im missing software i dont know how to check and i cant reinstall windows because i dont have the disc anymore. also i cant still connect to the internet...

I have a Dell XPS M1530 with a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. I lost my wireless capability all of a sudden with the previous install of Home Premium. Yes, the wireless switch is turned on. The machine has Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN Network Adapter and Marvell Yukon 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller. I have it hard-wired to my router with an Ethernet Cable. It's working fine.
 
Are there any suggestions as to how I can get my wireless capability back?

Hello, a few months ago my laptop started randomly turning off its capability, however last week it turned off completely. It occasionally turns but not for too long. The wifi button does nothing, no matter how much or how I press it, it stays orange. At the mobility center the function to turn on wifi is greyed out. I tried checking BIOS, everything is fine there, I tried checking WLAN AutoConfig at services.msc, everything is fine, and ofcourse I tried different drivers and stuff to no help. The interesting thing is that I had mini usb wireless adapter and it made wifi work, however I accidentally broke it and am unable to buy a new one at the moment.
P.S. I should also mention that I tried to lower the roaming sensitivity, make it that the laptop does not turn off the adapter on power saving mode, checked whether radio is enabled, troubleshoot the problem as admin, with no help. The driver is Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter. I pretty much tried everything out that I can find but nothing helped, hopefully someone will be able to help me. The laptop is HP ProBook 4540s. If you need more info I can gladly provide it.

In Device Manager Uninstall the current Wireless driver and then run the one I linked to. If I can remember correctly, it will ask if you want only the driver or the driver and complete software. Do the driver + software option. Reboot.

I am having issues with my wireless on my Asus laptop with Windows 7. About half a month ago, I was trying to help a friend with his internet problems, and was going through the steps myself. I instructed him to disabled, then reenable the wireless adapter in the network and sharing center. I did so myself, and noticed my wireless did not work after that. I ran diagnostics for it, and it told me that my wireless switch is turned off, which I checked and it is turned on. I tried switching it off then on again, but it still didn't work. I then did a system restore to get it to work again (which it did). Then, this morning, I was having trouble connecting to the internet, so, thinking it wouldn't do it again, I disabled and reenabled the wireless adapter, and now its doing the same thing. I tried doing a system restore, but it comes up with an error about the memory and cancels it. I would like to fix the wireless problem without having to do a system restore anyway. Please help.
Thanks, GPolice

I have a Compaq Laptop, Presario F500, and i've had it for approximately over 2 years... When i first got it of course everything worked and was fine. First and foremost, my problem is that my laptop will not register any wireless connections, and despite the wireless switch being turned on, instead of the color BLUE showing, indicating the laptop can connect wirelessly, (not a word lol) the actual color that is showing is AMBER despite my constant battles with it. Therefore, i cannot connect wirelessly to the internet. And my computer runs slow even though i've done a disk cleanup and a disk defrag. I have an external hard drive and i've taken almost everything off and put it on that, but that seemed to not do anything really. I called Microsoft to help and they knew the problem and how to fix it immediately!!! but at the end of saying all of that, they way talking about charging me $139.99.... I said < no thanks > . lol i previously had Norton Antivirus and all that good stuff. (Symantec and whatnot) but i took that off because of the subscription being expired, thinking that was part of the problem. And i installed McAfee.

In what may be a related issue, I can't get into Services - Vista says that either I don't have permission (I'm logged on as Administrator) or it can't find Windows/System32/Services.msc (which I can't see).

Hi!

I'm trying to configure my Win 7 Pro machine to wake from sleep when I attempt to connect through RDP from my work machine. My home computer is connected through a Belkin N+ USB Wireless adapter (can't physically connect to router through ethernet due to house layout).

When I go to the adapter's power settings the Advanced tab doesn't have any of the WOL settings available and the Power Management tab has the "Allow this device to wake the computer" option greyed out (see attached screenshots).

In my bios I have S1 & S3 sleep enabled and everything I can find that could be related with WOL enabled (Wake from Modem, Wake from Ring, etc.) although I see nothing referring to Wake on Lan or WOL specifically mentioned. The machine wakes from sleep using a keyboard perfectly so no problems there.

When I go to the ethernet adapter's settings all of the WOL options are available and enabled but I need this to work for my WiFi since the machine isn't physically connected. I just want to save some energy costs since I'm currently leaving my machine one 24/7 so I can remote in when need be from work.

I have the newest BIOS Firmware, newest wireless adapter drivers (Win7 compatible) and all Windows Updates installed. This has got me stumped, any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

A:Can't enable Wireless WOL!

That Ralink RT61 USB device is bus powered. When the computer turns the device off to save power it can't "hear" the wakeup call nor could it tell Windows to power it up if it could "hear" it.

OK bear with me here, I'm on this forum on behalf of a friend. his comp stats are the ones i've listed for my profile. I'm listing step by step everything that happened to the point where he is now - a seeming reset on his settings and loss of personal information stashed on the comp.

He was trying to set up a wirelness connection in a pub and tried to change network connections to create a wireless setting,
the problems started before he'd turned on his network card and actually connected.

after he'd restarted, the loading screen loaded a different backaround, all desktop settings were windows default, his personal folder was moved to the documents and settings. everything that had previously been in his personal folder was moved into doc and settings all the files were there. this is the first major change.
he'd opened the wireless options, had some options that werent part of the pub network - and didn't connect. it said limited to no connectivity. at this point he got a warning that said this isnt a safe connection and continued anyway. noticed the firewall was down at this point. he doesnt remember if he did or not leave it off. he didnt connect to any successful networks.
he then got the pub network password, and was able to connect, was on for about 15 minutes give or take, the low battery caused him to leave.
