Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Wireless My son has a HP dv6626 and I have a HP dv6636 pavilion laptop. His wireless light is blue when it is turned on, but mine stays red even though it says that it is turned on. I do not believe it is working because I have a wireless router and it says to turn on my "wireless radio". Please help!!


Answers :

Are you sure that it is red and not amber?

Amber, means that an integrated wireless device is turned off.
