Broken Wireless Hardware Switch Fix - Page 5
Yeah an other BINGO from Italy.
It works finally, machine is an HP Pavilion Dv6000 and for some weird cause sometimes the switch "happyly" disconnected the WIFI.
I'm a tech so it wasn't a big deal to find and chnage the microswitch that it was so weak.
But anyway with a good working new microswitch sometimes when the palmrest over it was pressed the blue led changed color in orange and connection went lost.
So I was reading all the thread and finally the last "macro" picture make me mask the damn 20 pin hole and now the LED is always blue.
Thanks again for your great support, I'm sure that a postive feedback its always welcome
guys im stuck. i have tried everything from reformatting the laptop to putting tape on pin 20 but still nothing :/ my laptop is a toshiba satellite l450D. how to know if the card is gone bad or if its something else ?? in device manager it says Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller is working properly, when i turn the laaptop on and it goes into bios the wireless light turns on but after bios it goes off. if anyone has anysuggestions it would be greatly appreciated. johnny
kk, my sister will be able to get me one for tomorrow. i also have another laptop, would it be possible to swap over wireless cards into each laptop and see if the problem still persists ??
