Re: how do I turn on my wireless capability?

Hi,

 

You need to try listing your model description, again? The number you gave in your original post lists only desktop models.

On the bottom of your laptop there should be a manufacturer's plate containing all model ID info including model, part and serial numbers. We need the model number to assist you in finding a remedy for your problem?

Okay, confirming you do have the HP Compaq 6730s laptop, yes? If you do, what operating system does it have? XP? Vista? On the keyboard panel there is a wireless light and switch directly to the left of the power on/off button, is it on?

Re: how do I turn on my wireless capability?

First of all we might be confused about what model laptop I have, my wireless light is on the right above the keyboard and there is no switch I can find. Is there a way to turn on the wireless connectivity with some combination of keys? I think f2 might be involved. In my manual it says something about wireless and the f2 key but I can't seem to get the wireless on. I am running Vista home premium. Thank you!

Okay, the second p/n number you provided lists as the HP Compaq 6730s laptop. Is this the unit you have? Again, check the bottom of your laptop for a model #? You should see three numbers...a p/n, a serial #, and a model # using brand name followed by some alphanumeric combination.

A friend of ours came by and actually hit the amber wireless light and it turned blue. It turns out that the light was the switch. Thank you for your help!

Re: how do I turn on my wireless capability?

This string really helped me! I have the same model HP laptop (6730b) and somehow the wireless capability got turned off. When I entered & held the fn + f2 keys and the system processed it for a sec (my mouse changed icons briefly), and... VOILA! Thanks!! P.S. You're right...  I don't see any actual "button" aside from my keyboard buttons, for a wireless "on/off".

Re: how do I turn on my wireless capability?

Hi, I have Hp 6730s, OS windows 7. I can't turn on my wireless. I try to turn it on by pressing wireless button, but it's not working. Button is yellow all the time. Also tried fn+f2, which isn't help.

I tried to install bluetooth driver and It was canceled because "No bluetooth device was detected...".

Can anyone tell me what to do?
