Omnibook 6100 wireless problem

We've had an Omnibook 6100 for about 2 years and it's never given us a single problem. We use a Lynksis wireless notebook adaptor to connect to the internet.

Suddenly, the computer stopped recognizing any wireless connections. The lights are on on the card itself but I don't see any wireless activity light on the omnibook.

I know the wireless is working - we have 3 other computers that are all able to connect without a problem.

I also know the card works because I inserted it into a sony laptop and it connected fine as well.

There does not seem to be a specific wireless enable/disable button but I know some laptops have a function key combination to enable/disable wirelss - could this be the probllem?

Re: Omnibook 6100 wireless problem

The buttons for disabling wireless only apply to integrated or factory-installed wireless cards.

Re: Omnibook 6100 wireless problem

never trust a sleeping light.

Have you seen in the system wether a connection is build up? Often it is possible to disable and to enable this connection .... and it works.

Other possibility: You are using XP? Than search for the last recovery point (I am setting one once a week) and change the PC to that status.

Tell me, if you have had success.


so long

Re: Omnibook 6100 wireless problem

I installed a intel 2200bg card and loaded the driver......but not getting any reception. Not to surprised as I did not see any antannae wires to plug onto the adapter?? do you know why there is no wires? Does this mean it is not wireless upgradeable?

Re: Omnibook 6100 wireless problem

Hello all,
does anyone know if the omnibook 6100 has wireless internet built in. it seems to have a button on the left side of it with a picture like a stick with rays(like wireless)and if you press it a blue light goes on, does anyone know if that's the wireless.
my friend told me to install the driver for wireless, and said that it would work, i was wondering if anyone has tried that either,

thanks all
P.S -
i would appreciate if any tips for the wireless internet or if you know a cheap laptop battery shop or refurbisher that has the omnibook 6100 battery, they are too deer and im looking for something in the, less then $40 range
thanks

Re: Omnibook 6100 wireless problem

Yes if your laptop has the button with the blue LED next to it, then it has built-in wireless LAN. You can download the driver for it from HP by following the "Support & Drivers" link at the top of the page.
