Just downloaded Wireless Button Driver sp59720.  This effectively toggles the antenna on/off.  The confusion appears to be that Win 8 reports "Airplane Mode" when this key is toggled.  That is different than Win 7.  AS long as it does the job I'm satisfied.  


Hey thanks for this post. This solution worked for me. I am going to repost this on the other thread and give you credit for coming up with a fix, no thanks to HP.

Sorry, I have to tell that the solutions doesn't work.

And then I also installed the HP Wireless Button Driver but nothing...

I'm totally upset, can't beleive this kind of behaviour.

 

I supect that this happend when I closed my notebook, then open and finally turned off pressing the power button for some seconds...


Please fix this as soon as possible if you need more information contact me, but please fix it.

Re: Wifi Button Not working(Remains orange) after upgradation to windows 8

Finally found the solution after 3 weeks.  Tried and manupulated all drivers and NIC lan card of my hp laptop dv6 7011tx.

 

UNINSTALL HP Quick Launch which caused the whole lot of problems and do the following 

       

- Shut down laptop

- Remove power cable & battery

- Press power switch for 30 sec

-  Attach power

- Power up laptop without battery

- Switch on wifi ---it works

- Now switch on the laptop with battery

 

HP quick launch describes itself as "

  Description

                    This package contains the HP Quick Launch Software, which enables special function keys on supported notebook models to be programmed. For example, the HP Quick Launch Software enables users to press the Fn+ESC keys to view system information. This software works with the supported operating systems. "
 
 
Note  :
                          This is the main problem.  I have found after seeing the internal working of this driver.  It caused the keys to work in its own described way thus overriding the wifi f12 button functionality to change from orange to white or white to orange.
 
                           After  and when restarting :
                                                       Put the computer to sleep and wake it up to find wifi on.
 
                             On normal shutdown and booting:
                                                                   Wifi works perfectly.
 
Note to HP:
 
                       Please check the working of HP Quick Launch Software.  I could find its algorithm and functioning and its made to override the default windows 8 key designed for HP.
 
 
Give me kudos if it works. 
Give me kudos if it works. And mark it is a Solution.
 
Thank you all for support and help.
