    Laptop Wireless Connection - Orange light

    A problem with my laptop. When I turn it on, the light by the switch stays orange and does not change blue. The wireless connection switch is in the on position, and the computer still does not recognize wireless internet connection.

    I have plug in the cable to use internet. :/
    Any idea how to bring back wireless internet connection?

    Well I did install a Windows Update, but I tried uninstalling it. Restarted the computer, and nothing.

    Then I tried to Restore my computer to like 5 days ago when the wireless did work, and still nothing.

    I've seen this problem while fixing a laptop from a friend.

    It's an hp notebook right?

    hp for some reason has been making very crappy wireless switches.
    -The problem is not software, it's hardware.
    Case in point, my friend paid hp $400 to have it fixed, and it failed *AGAIN* about two months later.

    I would suggest getting an "add in card".

    My laptop is a Compaq Pressario which I think is an HP Company.
    So there is no way to fix this problem with the switch?

    If I have to get the "add in card" how much would that cost, and I would apreciate it if someone could post a link to one on like newegg.

    Thanks everyone.

    Yes Compaq is part of hp.

    I'm not sure if your laptop has ExpressCard or PCMCIA, but you would have to get the wireless adapter for what you have.

    It's not too expensive either. ~ $20 - $55
