Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R50e Notebook ?

Computer says wireless radio is on and working properly but

\015 Wireless radio light is not coming on although system says it is enabled. I also troubleshooted it and the result came back as the device is working properly. How do I get the wireless radio light to turn on? The computer cannot detect any available wireless networks and I have wi-fi in my home\015

Answers :

Go to a DOS prompt. Run IPCONFIG /ALL. If you get a list of alot of numbers starting with 192. especially one that says IP address and Default Gateway, then you're wirless is working. At the next line type PING SONY.COM. You should get lines coming back that says reply from . . . which means they have received your ping. At this point I believe your Internet Explorer is hijacked. If you didn't get IP address or ping, then your system is not on. It's been my experience that you are infected with viruses. You'll need a goof cleaner like Dr. Web and Malware Bytes. After these are run you may have to reinstall some protected files - use SFC /scannow at the run prompt.
