Tried to turn it on in HP wireless assistant...went into network and sharing center in control panel...there are three adapters showing...Realtek PCIe FE Family Cointroller...Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g WiFi...Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport A... I went into device manager and done a driver update..browse my conputer for drivers and it said windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date except for the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport A... it said windows was unable to install you Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter. No yellow exclaimation marks anywhere. Thank you.

network sharing centre->adapter settings. What is state of wireless network card? Disabled? Disconnected?

But is the status disconnected or disabled (translated from dutch... don't know the real words)?
anyway rightclick on wirellan adapter and enable it.

It looks like you hardware disabled it! Any hardware switch to do that on laptop? May Fn+F3? or some switch

It says Not connected. When I put my cursor on the icon on the task bar it shows WLAN: disabled When I right click on it there are two options. Open Wireless Assistant and Turn WLAN Off which is greyed out. When I go into Wireless Assistant It says "This device has been disabled by the wireless button. To enable this device, press on wirelss button. But, the button if grey and does nothing if I click on it.

Step 2: Make sure the wireless network device is turned on (Notebook computers only)

For the wireless network adapter to operate properly, you must perform two separate actions: turn on the power to the wireless device, and then enable the device to send and receive signals.
There are different ways to check the status of the wireless network and turn the wireless device on and off. If you use one of the methods to turn off your network device, you should use the same method to turn it back on.
For more information on a given step, click the heading or the accompanying plus (+) sign to expand the information.

Turn on device using the wireless keyboard key or button




Most notebooks have a wireless keyboard key, switch, or a button on the case that turns the wireless network device on or off. In some cases, the wireless keyboard key or button might be inadvertantly disabled by an accidental press. The wireless button or switch is usually found as one of the F keys on the keyboard or as an illuminated button above the keyboard.
Figure 15: Example of a wireless keyboard key (yours may be different)

An indicator light ( ) glows blue when the Bluetooth or WiFi communication devices are turned on. If the computer has both Bluetooth and WiFi and one of them is turned off or the device is disabled, the light glows amber. The indicator light does not glow at all when power to the device is turned off. Use the HP Wireless Assistant software when you want to enable only one of the two wireless functions (Wireless LAN or Bluetooth).

Now that you are back online, you should try WDO again.
