Hi!
I am using Inspiron 17R SE 7720 (Service Tag: B8P81W1 | Express Service Code: 24470701201). The BIOS firmware is latest (A17).
This laptop is included in "Computers tested for upgrade to Windows 10".
However I expect problems in Windows 10 when going to sleep mode and/or entering powersave mode - WiFi stops working after waking up. It is a well-known problem and it is caused by Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 wi-fi adapter used in my laptop. The problem is driver-based and Intel has no plan to solve it because the adapter is obsolete.
I am going to upgrade my laptop replacing Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 with new Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260. It has the same form-factor and officially supports Windows 10.
Please let me know is there any restriction in BIOS those prevent changing WiFi adapter in this way?

Since my update to Windows 10, my Lenovo Twist has been having a lot of issues with the WIFI connection. I lose connectivity maybe 6 times a day, when before the update was maybe 1 every 2 weeks. I have tried reconfiguring the power management and that improved a little bit but it keeps disconnecting a lot. Any ideas or suggestions?

So I have this problem since November 2013 after updating to 8 to 8.1 Right after updating to 8 to 8.1, all of a sudden my wifi stops working. I used my old Belkin external wifi usb drive and now I'm able to get the internet going. However if I disconnect my Belkin usb I no longer get the internet because the wifi adapter that came with the H520 Desktop no longer works. I went through the device manager and under properties it tells me, 'Device not working properly' however it is up to date. Anybody else had this problem and had it fixed?

Does the wifi adapter show up in Device Manager and show working? You have a physical switch to turn it on/off? Could be the switch.

Hi @Saheb_12?,Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!I came across your post about the Notebook, and wanted to assist you! I have looked into your issue about your HP Pavilion 15-n203tx Notebook  and  and issues with the Wireless connecting. Try resetting the router. Unplug the router and wait 30 seconds before plugging it back in to make sure it fully resets. Here is a link to the troubleshooting the Wireless connection, if you need it. Here is a document on Airplane mode. If Airplane mode is on you cannot use your WiFi or Ethernet, so Airplane mode should off for the Wireless troubleshooting. You can do a system restore. System restore will help if something automatically updated and did not go well on the Notebook and stopped the WiFi from working. When performing a System restore please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices as they can cause issues. Please let me know how this goes.You can say thanks for trying to help, by clicking the Thumbs Up below!.Thanks.

Hi all, there are so many problems report about WiFi issues on Windows 10, but I did not really find mine. I'm running the HP ProBook 470 with the Atheros 9000 series WiFi adapter. It worked fine with Windows 7 Professional, 64 Bit. A couple of weeks ago I decided to upgrade to Windows 10. Everything works fine, except WiFi. I can connect to the WLAN and the signal strength and network speed is perfect, but after some time (minutes or even hours) it suddenly drops down and my WLAN router even states disconnected, but it will repair by itself after some time. I can force the "self-repair-speed" by disabling and enabling WiFi again. But, this is no good solution, WiFi must work reliable all the time when not moving around, and it work perfectly with Windows 7. I hoped that Microsoft and the hardware vendors do manage the drivers after one year of Windows 10 release, but seems not to be so. I already installed the latest driver from HP download site, but this is already one year old, and it was the same like Windows / Microsoft did while Windows Upgrade. So no change to be expected. Before I downgrade again to Windows 7, what else can I do? Are there some other drivers which might interfere with WLAN and might not be up to date? (Besides the WLAN driver I did not update others manually as I did rely to the Windows upgrade process.) Volker

Since I installed Windows 10 a few days ago, I haven't used my wifi, but now I find I can't turn it on. At the time of installation the f12 (wifi) key on my HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook was in the off position. Now it won't respond, and I can't turn wifi on any other way. The greyed-out box in the lower right hand corner won't respond (though the airplane mode will). When I'm in Settings: Network & Internet, the slider keeps going back to off. Can't turn it on under Network and Internet: Network Connections, and have already tried disabling and enabling the Wireless Network Connection. Under Manage Wi-Fi settings is some stuff about Wi-Fi Sense, which I'm not interested in -- hope this is not a ploy to make me use it!
Any ideas, aside from resetting the computer? Thanks!!!

A:Now that I've installed Windows 10, why can't I turn on my wifi?

I have the same problem. I assumed either my wifi had gone out(coincidence) or Windows 10 drivers... its also a HP Pavilion DV6 with amd chipset with Realtek wifi adapter. I have tried rolling back, updating drivers, uninstalling adapter reinstalling adapter...to no avail.

There is more than one way to do this but all require that you are using a certified Windows 7 driver which installs the Msoft Virtual WiFi adaptor which is used to set up the hosted wireless network.

The real problem with this is that if you already have a wireless connection then why would you need to create an Ad Hoc network in the first place?

I guess if you were somehow limited to a single connection it might come in handy, or if you needed to amplify the signal. You can't share through an Ethernet connection, it only works wireless to wireless.

You can set this up using the command prompt or you can install the connectify software which makes it easier for some. The links below explains the details about setting this up, take your pick, the last one is a download for a virtual router if that's what you wanted.

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.

Hi all Following a recent hard drive failure, I did a clean install of Windows 10 Enterprise (the ideapad originally came with a Windows 7 OEM licence). The wifi device, 'Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter' is present in the device manager and is reported as working. In the 'Network & Internet' settings dialog, if I turn wifi on, it is immediately turned off again. fn-F5 does nothing (the Lenovo Wireless Settings dialog is not displayed).  Perhaps I need to (re-)install this somehow? The WLAN Auto Config service is running (automatic). Cisco AnyConnect is not installed; I am actually trying to install it over wifi by connecting to my company's VPN server (which is not accessible using a wired connection) so that I can Activate Windows 10. Any ideas on how I can turn wifi on? TIA :-)

Have updated to 8 from XP. Can't use wifi. I can connect but wifi says off and I cannot work out to turn on. I have a generic lap top that never missed a beat under XP. With XP the driver was, per the cd, wireless networking solution by msi. When I check after upgrade it now says ralink technology11g mini pci. Like a lot of people, I have had problems with updates failing, whoever doing them in lots of 5 I have got them through, except 1 from ralink 11g minipci. Greatly appreciate if someone could tell me how to turn wifi on, or how to rerun failed update for driver. I am not super cluey however can handle all the basics. Bob.

A:Wifi says off, how to turn on.

Maybe try this:
Click start and type "ncpa.cpl" and hit enter (or you can go to My Documents and type in the address bar "ncpa.cpl" and hit enter) then right click on Wi-Fi or your internet and click enable. Do not know if this will work but you can give it a try.

Currently I'm at university and my internet will drop in some spots and its really annoying cause I have to move to places that I can get the wifi. At the places my wifi doesn't work, my friends laptops work fine. I'm really thinking of investing in a upgrade for wifi card and I want the best card I can get (one that supports A/C band).

I have the AO751H-1211 aspire one netbook. It comes with a b/g mini pci-e card that I would like to upgrade to an Intel 5300 or 5350 wireless-n card. On intel's site, they basically say that they can ensure 100% compatibility of these cards if they are used in conjunction with Centrino based processors. My netbook has a 1.33ghz Atom processor along with a Mobile Intel US15W Express Chipset. I see guys upgrading the wifi on these netbooks all the time. Will I be ok with my choice of wifi cards?
 

A:Upgrading Aspire One WIFI to Wireless-N..

Before you consider trying to add a different internal card, keep in mind that many laptop/netbook manufacturers lock the BIOS to specific wireless cards. I have a perfectly good 802.11n card in my closet that won't work in my HP or Toshiba laptops, both of them hang during the boot telling me I have an unsupported wireless card. They will ONLY accept the specific PCI ID that was shipped with the machine.

I'm thinking about upgrading my wifi-card to an Intel AC card. As far as I can understand there is a BIOS whitelist for authorized hardware which will require flashing before installing anything with non-Lenovo FRU. As I haven't been able to find a card dealt by Lenovo I don't really see any other option than flashing. Could anyone point me in a direction of a working card, or a working BIOS mod? I was thinking the Intel 7260 as a replacement card. Has anyone done this before? :-)

A:Upgrading Wifi-card in T420s to AC

Welcome to the forum!
 
There is no out-of-the-box-working AC wireless card for a T420, so you're looking at a BIOS mod.
 
There are places online that specialise in providing modded BIOSes, I doubt that anyone around here will post a direct link to one of them on Lenovo's own forum.
 
Time to put the search engine of your choice to work.

Hey there, I need a laptop for my studies - that's why I looked for my HP 650 Laptop I used three years ago. First thing I did was upgrading to Windows 10. I didn't have any problems doing that at home connected to my home wifi. When I'm at school there are two wifi networks: one secured wifi and one unsecured wifi. If you connect to the unsecured one a log in browser window pops up asking for a username and password. When connecting to the secured one the credentials are the exact same ones. BUT: I don't have any problems connecting to the unsecured one. Problems occur when I try to connect to the secured (faster) one. This morning I was able to use the secured one. After 2 or 3 hours I was kicked out and ever since I am not able to reconnect to the secured one. The latest drivers for the network adapter are installed. I also tried adding the network manually. I unchecked "Varify the server's identity by validating the certificate". Now I am asked to put in my username and password in a system window - but it doesn't go through and I am asked over and over again without any established connection. Any ideas what to do?

Hello @Banti2?, Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, both from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I read your post about the Windows 10 upgrade, and wanted to assist you!You can use the Go back to an earlier build option, in your System Settings: HP Notebook PCs - Upgrading to Windows 10Once you are back to your original Operating System, check to see if you are experiencing the same issue. If not, then you may consider holding off on the Windows 10 upgrade for a few weeks, until drivers can be updated. However, if you are able to get the WiFi and Bluetooth to work, using an external device, then you can continue to use Windows 10.  Keep in mind, that the rollback option is only good for the first 28 days, after installing Windows 10. Please let me know if this information was helpful by clicking the thumbs up below.Regards!

I have a netbook/notebook with some keys do not work anymore. I am now using an external keyboard but it does not funtion exactly as the built in keyboard. Using the built in key, I can turn some features like turning on the wifi by pressing fn keys and F8. But with the external keyboard, it does not work. I cannot turn on WIFI anymore or any other feature that this netbook has.
 
I am considering replacing the built-in keyboard but do not have budget as of the moment. I tried google but it did not help.
I have U135DX, I believe, it's the model number. It's MSI, running windows 7 starter. These are the information. I hope that will help.
 

A:How do I turn on WIFI without the keyboard.

Some wireless adapters allow you to enable/disable radio in their advanced settings but I am not sure if this would work for a wireless adapter disabled via the keyboard.
 
You could disable the wireless adapter you have and purchase a USB wireless adapter like this.

I've got a Lenovo ideapad Z470 laptop and the WiFi modem/card in it won't turn on.

The laptop has a physical switch on the front which turns on/off the wifi.

If I turn the switch to on, an image appears on the screen saying its been turned on and vice versa if I switch it off.

However, Windows isn't showing it as being available in the system tray.

I can connect via ethernet and have tried using the Wifi to connect to two different networks and it looks like the card is the problem.

If you look at my previous posts, they have been about my laptop not connecting to the internet. Perhaps this is why?

Can they be fixed or replaced?

Thanks.

Dell built these systems (I also have an E5500 which is very similar architecture but is dual processor) to run on Vista Business and I can downgrade to XP because they sent me all the drivers on a CD ROM for that when I was still under warranty. Vista Business is a very good operating system but it has the problem with losing print spoolers all the time and the "jumping cursor issue" and I have hear that 7 is more efficient and has more options. But when I try to upgrade I am pretty much dead in the water because the driver site does not list a wifi driver for 7. It works but no communication except thru the LAN. This of course is true (or false) for all of the VB driver set. Should I try to install 7 again and then dowload the drivers and see which work? What other suggestions might you have?

Hi,

We have a G router and our wifi does not reach the range we require in our home. (Cox recently upgraded to the N router and gave existing customers a new router for free...I asked Verizon if they would be upgrading and was told yes, but not sure when; it has been several months now and we Verizon customers have not heard anything new).

My issue is: Does anyone know how to either upgrade to the N router? Not sure what configurations need to be done with hardware/software.

Or I heard that there are range extenders in the stores we can purchase. If anyone has any experience and can tell a determined beginner how to hook up the equipment and configure the software, I would greatly appreciate it!

Thank You,

I browse for a while, then pages stop loading. I am still connected. If I turn the WIFI adapter on the laptop off then on again and reconnect I can surf for a while.

During the period I cannot surf on the laptop I can on the ipod so there is a live connection beyond the router.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Hi

i have a sony vaio computer.yesterday just opened my laptop cleaned fan.then closed clearly.after i can't connect internet via WiFI but i can connect via cable.

my question is when i try to connect via WIFI it's say it's turn off.. how to turn on now?

A:how to turn on Wifi in sony Vaio

Do you have a physical button or switch on your laptop which you can push? Almost all laptops have this feature so that you can turn the wireless off.

If not then you should be able to force it by going to Start> Control panel

Once opened click on 'Network and Internet'



Afterwards, click on 'Networking and Sharing Center'



From here you want to click on 'Change Adapter Settings'



Now, right click on the wireless adapter listed and click on 'Enable'. This should enable your wi-fi card



Hope This Helps,
Josh!

My wife has a toshiba Satellite L645D-S4040 running Windows 7 64 bit. This morning she ran an update and has since lost wifi and Fn F8 does not work. Went to Toshiba site and downloaded and ran the TVAP. It got rid of the Microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter and we still can't get the wifi to enable. Unfortunately she does not remember which update it was that she performed. Help.

Update: My wife remembered that the only change she made was to install Secunia PSI from this sites download section.

A:WiFi turned off after update, and won't turn on again

Does FN+F8 key work after installing TVAP?

Did you try a system restore?

I have Win 7 Home Premium.

Is there an easy way to disable my wireless connection so that (a) it does not enable itself after a reboot, and (b) I don't need to implement the complete process to re-enable the wireless?

Under normal circumstances, the re-enable after a reboot is fine. I can disconnect WiFi from the system tray, and it reconnects after reboot.

But sometimes, I might want wireless to remain disabled after reboot. For example, if I'm doing a database restore, and the database starts synching after a reboot (such as Evernote), it could cause problems :-)

At the moment, I simply switch off the router until the database restore is complete.

I recently turned off my wifi connection just to do an install. I simply pressed func+F12 and i shut it off until my installation was complete. Now when i hit F12 again to turn it back on the little light on the key turns back on indicating that my wifi connection is back on but when i try to connect in my network connections menu it says wifi is off. I have a Samsung chronos series 7 with windows 8 as my OS. I tried everything as far as trouble shooting goes and I also did a system restore hoping it would reset my network card but I still get know results. Does anybody have any idea what might be going wrong? I really need to get my internet working again. Oh yeah i tried the Ethernet connection and that works but i need my laptop for class and other events where I'm mobile , plus i got an assignment due this morning and this is really putting a monkey wrench in my plans. So somebody please help.

Thank You

P.S.
Maybe I didn't set my restore point far back enough and also the one suggestion I didn't try was refreshing my computer but i didn't want to have to reinstall every freakin application I have loaded on my laptop.

A:Wifi wont turn back on

Have you checked to set what wireless adapter is set as default since you've turned wifi off? Since you turned it off, the default setting may have changed which could explain your not being able to connect to your wifi.

My wifi suddenly turned off, when I troubleshooted it said that wireless capability was turned off and when I went to turn it on, it was already enabled. I've tried a lot of things including updating just about everything but nothing seems to be working. Help.

Hello!I've just bought used (but mostly disassembled) 6470B. It's in very good shape (after cleaning... yuck!) and I see it becoming my main machine.However it's lacking essential components. I want to be it as modern as possible, since it's going to be in use as long as possible. Problem is HP documentation is wildly confusing and often contradicting itself. Will it work with: - Core i7-3632QM 35W Quad core CPU? I've found it's officially compatible with I7-3820QM (which is surprisingly 45W part, but extremely hard to come by in my area). I'd really love quad core CPU, it speeds up my work so much. - HP LT2523 LTE mPCIe modem (it's listed as a spare part for this laptop, despite only hs2350 and un2430 being listed on modem support)? - Intel 7260-AC WiFi/BT card? Previous model I had had WIFI whitelisting, this model probably doesn't, but I'd like to check. - Keyboard with a trackpoint? This requires some explaining: Originally it came with really badly dirty keyboard (not spilled, just unsavagably greased, like doritos mixed with butter massaged into it), and it lacked the trackpoint. Only spares I can find cheaply come with it - will it work (does it have the connector), or if not, will the keyboard still work? - FHD or HD+ IPS display, if there are compatible spares (with correct cable, of course)? I understand that half of it isn't officially  supported, but I'll take the risk, as long as it works.Thanks in advance!

Here is the Service Manual: Manual There are two Intel motherboards. One with the QM77 chipset and one with the HM76 chipset. The top listed processor is the i7-3540M. It is listed as a Quad Core but I think in reality it has 2 cores. The smart answer is that you cannot use the i7-3632QM but it may work, particularly if you have the model with the QM77 chipset.  The WWAN modem you ask about is listed in the parts list so will work.  You can only use the WLAN cards listed on p. 38 and it has to be one with an HP Part number.  There are keyboard options with and without the trackpoint so the motherboard is made to accept either one. See the picture on p. 92. There should be a zif connector for the pointer stick right next to the bigger zif for the main keyboard cable.  Looks like the best screen is a 1600 x 900 (HD+).  14.0-in, LED, FLT, HD+, AntiGlare display panel 686047-001 http://www.ebay.com/itm/14-0-1600x900-LED-Screen-for-HP-ELITEBOOK-FOLIO-9470M-LCD-LAPTOP-686047-001-... It's a 40-pin LED screen and likely a FHD version in the same form factor, even an IPS, would work but never sure.  Post back if you have any more questions.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

My adapter is always gone from resuming from sleep. I know it was working before. Just changed my ram and bios settings from a fresh build. Went from Corsair xms3 to G.Skill Ripjaws.

I am having this same issue with my newly built pc. The drive running Windows 7 is from a laptop where the mobo died. I am using it in AHCI mode because my case has a front hot swap caddy.

I have a Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 mobo and after installing and uninstalling drivers, software, changing settings, removing ram, changing power options to maximum power for pci card and wifi, turning off hibernate, restarted, rebooted, updated all drivers from Gigabyte, chipset drivers, etc. I have unchecked "allow Windows to turn off this device". Restarted and tested and I get the same issue. I have unchecked this box in all of my networking devices too including, 802.11n Wireless Lan Card #2 and Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter. Also, uninstalled and reinstalled these and updated drivers from my disc that came from Gigabyte as well as driver update from the Gigabyte website.

Nothing I do will turn on my wifi card after sleep. Windows will not see a network adapter. Everything works fine after restarting though. I have S3 enabled in bios as that is what I want. I have case fans that I don't want to hear with no option to turn them off. Otherwise, i'd be fine with S1.

Hi EDYYOO,
What is the current OS installed on the system? Does the ethernet work fine? Is the wireless card detected under network adapters in device manager? Did the issue start after any recent windows updates?
If the system was working fine earlier, then perform a system restore to restore the machine to an earlier point where it was working fine - http://dell.to/1Sg6khF
Update the BIOS if possible - http://dell.to/2fIMORn - restart the system and check if it works.
Restart the system and press f2 on startup to enter BIOS - check if Wireless swtich and wireless devices are enabled in BIOS.
Restart and check in safe mode with networking.
Enable the built in admin account and check - http://bit.ly/1Bgok2R

Hi: Please post the hardware ID for the wireless card, so I can figure out what driver you need for it. To find the hardware ID, go to the device manager and there should be a device listed as a Network Controller found under an Other Devices category. Click on the Network Controller device, and then click on the Details tab at the top of the Network Controller window. Now you will see a Property drop down list and it will be set on Device Description. Drop down on that list and select the 2nd item (Hardware ID's). Post the top string of characters that you see in the window.

Hello,

I have a new PC (notebook) that my friend gave me. It's name is "Gigabook" which is not very famous.. I suspect it is a small company that combines hardware into a notebook.

Anyways, I have installed Windows 7 on it but found out that the internet doesn't work. for some reason I can't turn on the WiFi to find out my network and when I connect an Ethernet cable to the notebook, nothing happens..

I thought it's the driver, could download it and transfer it to the notebook via USB drive. the problem is I can't find the software anywhere..

My network card is WAN Miniport. I can check any other hardware here, it's just that you won't find anything about Gigabook..

P.S.
a) this is my first post on your forums. please forgive me if I posted in the wrong place or made other noob mistake.
b) I come from the Mac and Linux world, so I don't have a lot experience on this OS.. I'll appreciate any help.

Thank you very much in advance.

can you explain what specifically you wanted to do

The router will broadcast a wireless signal - enabling any device to pick up and use the router to access the internet, providing the router is connected to an internet service.

Nothing to do with your PC
The PC is just another device that can connect to the wireless broadcast by the router
But the PC will need to be switched on to do that
Other devices can continue to use the router , even with your PC off
