Networking :: Show Airplane Mode Switch On WiFi Menu On Desktop Computer

Jan 19, 2016

I will be keeping the wireless turned off most of the time on my desktop, as I use it for live pro audio. Is there a registry hack to put the switch in there, even if the computer is not a laptop???

Networking :: Unable To Switch Off Airplane Mode And Go Back To WiFi Connection

Feb 10, 2016

Since my daughter (2 years old) switched on airplane mode last week, I'm no more able to switch it off and go back to wifi connection.

No more WiFi / airplane mode icons in wifi window on the taskbar, no more airplane mode option on network settings...

Everything disappeared, apart from the airplane mode icon in the right corner of the screen, which I can not switch to WiFi mode...

Networking :: Cannot Turn WiFi On And Airplane Mode Remains On

Dec 16, 2015

since I have updated my dell laptop an inspiron 15 3000series to windows ten I cannot turn off airplane mode and thus cannot turn my wifi on. I have tried everything I found on the net from device manager to command prompt downloading new drivers and yet also to simple stuff like pressing the PrtScr key. I am desperate, I am an international student n the only way I can call my parents for free is via the net(i.e wifi) but it is not working.

Networking :: WiFi Icon Stuck In Airplane Mode Despite Full Connectivity?

Dec 19, 2015

I just (Dec. 19, 2015) completed the latest update to Windows 10, had trouble with my volume icon, fixed it, then found my wifi icon is stuck in airplane mode despite the laptop having full wifi functionality. Tried turning system icons on and off through the "task bar and start menu properties" dialog box, tried various combinations of "on" and "off" while restarting the entire system, nothing works. I've connected and reconnected wirelessly by both using a physical button (shaped like an antenna emitting parentheses-shaped waves) and by using the icon that's now stuck in airplane mode. I can access the internet, but I can't see the status in the task bar as I used to. All I see is the icon shaped like an airplane, even while I'm clearly not in airplane mode and when I should therefore be seeing the wifi icon.

Networking :: Airplane Mode Is On When Computer Wakes Up From Sleep

Nov 5, 2015

I am on 10565 Pro version though this occured in last build too. Whenever I come back to my pc in the morning after putting it in hibernate mode for the night my airplane mode is always on. I notice it first by my bluetooth mouse being disconnected and then wifi connectivity.

The one fix I tried is unchecking the allow to shut off option to save power under device manager properties for my wifi adapter.

Networking :: Airplane Mode Will Not Turn Off

Sep 27, 2015

I have a desktop computer with built in WiFi and Bluetooth. I have installed the latest drivers from the MFG website (ASUS ROG Maximus VII Formula). The problem is that Airplane mode will not disable. When you click on it, it shows that you clicked on it, but immediately resets to "On" no matter what.

You will also notice that WiFi and Bluetooth are missing from the control panel.

I have made sure both devices are enabled at the BIOS level, however, due to Airplane mode being forced on, they do not even show up in the device manager (even under "show hidden").

I do not thing this is a BIOS/Driver issue; this appears to be a bug.

Networking :: Airplane Mode Will Not Toggle Off In Network And Internet Settings

Aug 18, 2015

For some reason the Airplane mode setting can not be turned off in Network and Internet Settings, Network setting from taskbar, or Action center from taskbar. I am using my desktop and will never have it on an airplane. However, the computer does have a wifi adapter which I could use and it is able to be enabled.

Also, have other wifi devices on my home network, another PC and a tablet, a wireless printer and all are working fine. It must be a 'bug' on the desktop but someone should know that it is there. On the other PC, which is an all in one, the Airplane mode is not even in the settings anywhere.

Auto Switch Tablet / Desktop Mode Stopped Working

Jul 31, 2015

How to turn on the automatic desktop/tablet mode switching?

I run W10, the official release, on a Surface Pro 3 with a keyboard cover. Up to now, when I detach the keyboard I get asked if I want to switch to tablet mode, and when I attach the keyboard desktop mode has been automatically restored. I really like how W10 separates the two modes, instead off like W8/8.1 trying to be in both modes simultaneously.

But suddenly this does not happen. When the keyboard is detached, I do not get any question about enabling tablet mode and the Surface stays in desktop mode. If I manually switch to tablet mode, when I attach the keyboard the machine stays in tablet mode until manually disable it.

I have not changed any settings related to this, not deliberately at least.

I have looked at the tutorial on tablet mode in this forum, but it says nothing about automatic switching. I have checked the available settings but cannot see that there is any setting determining automatic mode switch, other than the "Always/never ask me before switching" (which is set to always).

Networking :: Lose WiFi When Back From Sleep Mode

Sep 4, 2015

title says it. every time I turn on the computer, my wifi is always there. when I come back from sleep mode, it is not. no wifi options are available in the network section.

it is not signal strength. I had a slight USB issue, but as I said, I always get wifi when I turn it on, so seems any USB issue would show up when I boot either way..

is the power surge to the USB ports the same whether you boot from off versus from sleep? is coming back from sleep different somehow than powering up from off?

Lost Wireless Connection When Upgraded - F12 Key Now Only Controls Airplane Mode

Feb 26, 2016

While using Windows 7 I often disabled my wireless connection by using the f12 function key. It was disabled when I upgraded to Windows 10 via my ethernet connection. The f12 key now only controls airplane mode. I cannot enable my wireless adapter. I have an HP Pavillion dv7 notebook computer. HP says they offer no Windows 10 compatible upgrades for this model. Is there a solution other than restoring Windows 7?

Networking :: Can't Print From Second Computer On WiFi Network

Aug 21, 2015

I have a network that has 3 laptops running Win 10. 2 of the computers (haven't checked the third yet) indicate they are on the same network SSID. One computer can print from the printers on the network.

The second laptop had the same printers and was able to print to them prior to Win 10. Now the SSID is the same as the first computer yet it can't print nor can it see any printers oe devices on the network!

Networking :: Sharing Ethernet And WiFi Connections On One Computer

Jan 15, 2016

My desktop is connected to my router by Ethernet. However, the printer I use is in my wife's office on another floor. It is a wireless Epson Artisan 730. I have added a Dlink DWA-171 wireless usb adapter to my desktop to print wirelessly to the Epson.

However, every time I want to print, I have to disable my Ethernet connection so the WiFi connection will see the printer. Then I'm done printing and I re-enable the Ethernet (faster, more stable).

Networking :: WiFi Drops Out And Can't Reconnect - Computer Hangs On Shutdown / Restart

Jan 7, 2016

I installed W10. This problem appears to be random and happens a couple of time a month. It is really annoying. What happens is, the WiFi appears to stop working. It can't find any available networks and won't reconnect no matter what I do. I have even tried closing/restarting explorer but that does nothing.

If I try to shut-down or restart my computer, it just hangs on the shut-down/restart screen. I have to hold down the power button to get my computer to shut-down. The weird thing is, after a restart, it works fine ...for a few weeks. It just seems very strange.

I use a WiFi dongle. I have a couple of them so I tried each one - they all eventually give me the same result . I have a HP if that works.

Dell WiFi Switch Not Working

Aug 1, 2015

I got a new Dell this year, which came with Windows 7 (Dell Precision M4800), and it was working perfectly until the Wi-Fi stopped working. After hours of research and troubleshooting and updating, I figured out that the one and only reason my WiFi wasn't working was because my hardware WiFi switch was not working. In other words, even when I switch it into the on position, it still stays off.

With Windows 7, there was a convenient fix: go into my Bios, go into the wireless category, and tell the Bios to ignore the WiFi switch. This fix worked, and I forgot all about the problem until I upgraded to Windows 10. The WiFi stopped working again. So I went through all that hullabaloo of updating things, and nothing worked. So I isolated the problem to the WiFi switch.

I went back into my Bios, and found a disclaimer: For Windows 8 systems, the Bios does not affect wireless capability because they use their own OS drivers. In other words, for Windows 8 and up, I can't use the Bios to ignore my broken hardware switch. Here is my question: aside from replacing my WiFi switch, is there a way to turn wireless capability on in Windows 10? Is there a way to make Windows ignore the hardware switch?

I went through hours of customer support as well, and 40 minutes after I told them my switch was broken, they told me, " It appears to be a hardware issue." I do like a laugh, but I actually need my WiFi, I am temporarily downgrading back to Windows 7 until I can resolve the issue. But I really do like Windows 10, so I'd like to go back to it asap.

Keyboard Shortcut To Switch To Touch Mode?

Jul 14, 2015

Since I was wiping a PC anyway, I've installed W10pro x64 to decide if it could work.

Obstacle #1: I need to allocate a mouse button to switch between touch mode and desktop (wimp style) mode. What is the keyboard shortcut to bind for this? Or is there a script I could set the mouse button to launch if there is no keyboard shortcut available yet?

Obstacle #2: Persuade Logitech to make 4 finger swipe up switch to/from touch mode on the T650.
