Specs: Windows 7
Hi I can't connect to the internet and have made sure the wireless key is turned on. Not able to search for my wireless network hardware not working or turned on? Tried a system restore but it didn't work either got an error message. I am thinking my network adapter is not turned on somehow? Suggestions?

Figured it out. When to msconfig and changed start up setting to normal and restarted and it worked. I must have turned off some of the programs a while back when the computer was running slow. Thanks for the help!

Is the wireless icon displayed in the notification area?

Haven't used this computer in probably 1 year so maybe needs some updates but can't seem to get connected to the internet. Actually the light shows internet is on in the bottom left corner for wireless enabled (F3 switch) but no internet connection status in bottom right not even open per your image. Have tried to search for wireless networks but system says wireless service not on.

Try this:

- Click Start, type services.msc in the search box, then press Enter.
- Scroll down to "WLAN AutoConfig", right click on it & select Properties.
- Make sure it's set it to Automatic & not Disabled, press the Start button beneath it, & then click OK.
That should start the service.

Also can you connect via cat-5/ethernet cable?

It was set to automatic but showing as stopped. When I try to start I get an error message "windows could not start the WLAN AutoConfig service on Local Computer. Error 1068: the dependency service or group failed to start"
