How Do I Turn on the Wireless NX9010?

Updated April 17, 2017

The Hewlett-Packard NX9010 laptop computer comes with an integrated wireless adaptor that allows it to connect to home or public Wi-Fi networks. Before connecting to the Internet via a wireless connection, turn on the computer's wireless adaptor with the switch on the front of the laptop. Once you've switched on the wireless adaptor, your HP NX9010 laptop will automatically detect all locally available wireless networks.

Switch on the HP NX9010 laptop computer by pressing the power button above the keyboard on the left-hand side.

Wait for the laptop to power on and for the Microsoft Windows operating system to load. If prompted, type your Windows password into the input box, then click the arrow icon to log in to Windows.

Switch on the laptop computer's integrated wireless adaptor by moving the switch on the right-hand side of the front of the laptop to the "On" position. This illuminates the wireless indicator light next to the wireless switch.

Hover your mouse pointer over the wireless Internet connection icon in the notification area on the right-hand side of the Windows desktop taskbar. This displays current wireless Internet connection status. If the computer is not currently connected to a wireless network, double-click the wireless icon. Click the name of the network that you want to join in the list of available wireless networks. Click the "Connect" button to join the network. If prompted, enter the wireless network's password or security key.


Avoid visiting websites that require you to enter personal or financial information while you are using open public Wi-Fi networks.
