Wireless network adapter - Vista

\015 I have a Compaq laptop (Presario V6215CA) that had a wireless adapter included.\302\240 It worked fine for months, then one day I opened it up and the wireless was gone.\302\240 I tried doing a system restore (a couple of times) and it failed each time I tried.\302\240 I checked for windows updates and there was nothing there. I dont see a separate wireless device in the device manager - not sure if it is the same as the wired LAN or not.\302\240\302\240 The network troubleshooter says I have no wireless device installed.Any ideas how I can get it back, or do you think the device is toast?\015

Answers :

This may sound stupid, but a possible solution to some of the problems above might be to turn on the wireless properties on on the laptop (may not be the correct terminology). On my laptop the wireless switch does not turn on the wireless, unless the wireless radio button is pre-selected. This is found in a pop up at the top centre of the screen, or possibly by right clicking on the wireless icon and selecting 'enable' or 'radio on'. In my case it certainly was not a driver or hardware issue.
I know this is over a year, but have you tried checking the bios setting? It may be that the bios has an option to disable the integrated wlan.
