Hi

if right click on the connection, does it have enable

also on most HP laptops there is a physical switch which turns the wireless on/off

or goto device manager

on XP
start>
control panel>
system>
hardware tab>
device manager button>

network adapters
click on the + sign

you should see the WLAN rightclick and enable

On vista
start>
control panel>
system>
device manager button, should be listed on the left hand side>
network adapters
click on the + sign

you should see the WLAN rightclick and enable

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type devmgmt.msc

Please respond to all the following steps.
  1. Under Network adapters, please tell me all the devices listed.
  2. Are there any devices under Network adapters that have a red x displayed?
  3. Also, are there any devices anywhere in the Device Manager display with yellow ? or ! displayed?


Also, please post a screen shot of what you are talking about when you say it's disabled.


To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to TSG, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

Repeating etaf's points ...

There's a physical switch, right? Maybe a slide switch in the front; maybe a button at the keyboard's upper left? Does the wireless come on when you toggle it?

In Network Connections is the wireless connection enabled?

@Terrynet
I had switched on the physical wireless button moreover its displayed that it has been disabled from windows mobility center.

Devices listed under network adapters are :
Bluetooth device(Personal area Network)
Bluetooth device(RFCOMM protocol TDI)
Intel PRO/wireless 3945BG Network connection
Marvell Yukon Ethernet controller

No devices marked with ! or ?.

Since those two HP annoyances can't agree, try one more thing, please.

In Network Connections right click on your wireless connection. If one of the options is 'Enable' select it.

Well, I'd certainly uncheck the power saving option and see if that helps.
