Having problems with your Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook ?

Wireless internet button

\015 My wireless internet button does not work. I can't connect to the internet and get a message that says make sure your button is on...\015

Answers :

There is a mechanical problem with the R3000 buttons, (especially the wireless button and volume-down button) where they seem to push fine but are in fact failing to make electrical contact. I know of two work-arounds.
* Try pushing the button with a capped pen, gently at first, and then with increasing pressure. (Not so hard you break the plastic, please!) I suspect this gives the buttons just enough extra "oomph" that contact is established.
OR
* Push up on the battery compartment while pressing the buttons. If the battery is in, you can acheive this same effect by putting your laptop on a table and popping up the screen, then applying downwards pressure on that corner of the laptop body while pushing the button. I suspect this aligns things properly so that the button is able to depress just a hair further.

\015\012You may even find that these actions "loosen things up" enough to cause the buttons to work like new for a little while. I hope this works for anyone reading this!
I had the same problem and found that it was enabled in the network connections & no issues under device manager. Mine had to have the control panel with the buttons (wireless network etc.) on it replaced... Mine also had the mute button not working at the same time! I hope you get it fixed
