i can't find any switch in my pc and there is no wifi button on my keyboard

how to turn on  wireless capability


System model : HP OMNI 120-1120IN ALL IN ONE PC


S/no : [edit]






Don't know the reason for this problem



I'm using the wireless capability which came with the system


Windows update is up to date

And i also searched the driver online using update driver in device manager

It said " driver is up to date"


And the wifi lan says  " The device is working properly"


The wifi adapter is enabled


I checked power management also 

It also didn't solve my problem


I reset winshock ,ip ,etc


It also didn't work


I did hp hardware diagnosis it said WiFi adapter is working properly


I dont know what is the problem

I can't find any wifi switch on my pc and keyboard

@PRABHU1996 Here's what you need to do, to turn the wireless capability back on:

Method 1: Most of the laptops have a tiny switch on the side (or front) of the laptop that turns the wireless ON/OFF. Make sure you’ve switched it on.


Method 2: Do the following:

  1. Click Start, type network and sharing center in the Start search box and hit Enter.
  2. Click Change adapter settings.
  3. Right-click the connection and select Enable.

Method 3: By installing the latest driver for the wireless network adapter obtained from the manufacturer a majority of connection problems within Windows 7/8/10 have been solved. Download and install the Windows compatible drivers for support site of the manufacturer of your laptop and check if the issue gets fixed.


Method 4: To enable the wireless adapter, go to the admin account by enabling it and there run the network troubleshooter and see if it can fix the problem.

To enable Admin account in Windows 10/8/7, open an elevated command prompt window, type the following and hit Enter:

netuser admin active:yes

Now log off, and you can see a new Admin account at startup. Run the Network troubleshooter here.
After getting admin privileges, it can auto fix the issue in most of the case.
