Compaq cq62 Wireless Assistant problem - how to solve



I spent few hours resolving problem with Wireless Assistant on CQ62.

After Windows 7 start, Wireless Assistant need 5 min to start Wireless Card and connect on router.


So I decide back image of Windows 7 to point where I have no installed Quick Launch and Wireles Assistant and use only Windows for managing my wlan card.


1. push F12 (wireless icon) button ( on this model of laptop not necessery use Fn button) to turn on Bluetooth and Wireless card

In my case, BT start and Windows recognise and install BT drivers but on wireless icon stil was red cross


2. Go in control Panel, Network and Shareing, click Change adapter settings, right click disable and enable wireless card


Now in my case Windows recognise card as turned on and ask for new visible networks


If you like control your Wireless card without Wireless Assistant, you can clikc on Start Menu, in search write Windows Mobility Center and right click Send shortcut to Desktop. This is instaled only on laptops as I have no it on PC.


I hope this will help  someone .


I use Wireless Assistant  on other models without problems but on this it wont work correctly

Re: Compaq cq62 Wireless Assistant problem - how to solve

Thank you so much! I called Time Warner and they had me on hold forever trying to figure it out. I got impatient and looked it up myself. Thanks for the info! 😊
