Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My wireless is not working. I have a Compaq laptop for which the W-lan icon is not showing up in the side tray nor is the light turning blue. When I am connecting the machine thru Ethernet from the same wireless router the internet works. I have already uninstalled and reinstalled the driver.

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

\015\012It sounds like the hardware is damaged. It is either the button (that slides left to right) or the actual card for the wireless which is integrated to motherboard.
\015\012
\015\012In order to check both of these, the laptop will have to be opened up and you will need to take a look inside. This can be a difficutl process but if you are a DIY type person, you can find the specs on the manufacturer's website.

\015\012Instead of replacing this or having to open the computer, I would recommend purchasing a Linksys wireless adaptor. You can find them at any electronics store for less than $50.00 and sure beats the frusturation of having to put the laptop together. There are two different types. USB adaptor or Card adaptor. (see pictures)

\015\012This will give you time to look around and find a computer tech that will not charge too much.

\015\012I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any questions.
Make sure that you physically turned on the wireless connection on your laptop. This is done either by pressing the Fn key & another key marked with an antenna in the same color as the "Fn" on the Fn key, or by moving a small switch to the ON position. This small switch is usually located on the side of the laptop. You might need to refer to your laptop's user manual to locate that switch.
If you do not have your laptop's user manual, specify the model of your laptop & I could help you find it on the Internet.

Our fire station has a cat5e cable supplying internet access to our internal network from a switch in city hall. It connects a baystack 350 to their switch. If this cable is left plugged in during the evening or the weekend, something happens to cause the baystack to stop working. All of the lights are on appropriately, but there is no connectivity even in our own network. I am not sure how the cable from city hall is run. Could this cable be picking up some noise causing the problem?


Very likely an IP problem. The server in City Hall is most likely doing the DHCP assignments for all connected machines, and if there is a LAN server running DHCP also in the firehall, there will be a conflict, which may not manifest itself until the ... PC Desktops
