I'm having this problem too. I have read many other HP wireless problem issues all with different answers and options; however, this is the only one that is the Compaq 620 and it has not been given an answer. Can someone please respond as I have all the hardware and devices to run off wifi now but the laptop is the only one that can't register.

Ok i think i have the solution for this... Go in Control Panel> Network and Internet > Network Connections . Then disable the wireles network connection (right click on Wireless Network Connection then disable)... After that go right click on the WNC and click diagnose... The problem should be fixed after that...

Ok try this.... Go in control panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing center then on the left side you should have "Change adapter settings" option... After doing this, right click on the Wireless Network Connection icon then click disable. Do diagnose on Wireless Network Connection and it should be fix... It works for me. Peace

Thanks for replying, The diagnosis said to 'use the switch on the front of computer to enable wireless capability on this computer'. This is the problem I'm having is that the key on the keyboard with the wireless signal will not activate the wireless capability it won't change from orange light to green. This seems to be a common problem with HP computers as I've read with other forums, just haven't seen the answer to fixing it with this particular computer with Windows 7. Any ideas?

That is, you need to un install wireless drivers and re-install all relevant drivers that match your wireless card

Sorry to wake up such an old thread, but I have a solution that I think might work for anyone who reads this thread in the future.
Go to the device manager > right-click the wireless network card > go properties > advanced > radio on/off. See on the right hand side if the radio is disabled. In my case it was, and it didn't help to press the button, the led was still amber. Turning this setting to enabled however, did.
In my case this is a school that's got about 50 of these units, and somehow the students (or some kind of malfunction) turns the radio off so I manually have to turn it back on. Very annoying. There seem to be no quick fix either; I've tried Fn + Wireless, Shift + Wireless etc etc.
