    Windows 10 + WiFi + Hardware WiFi activity-light


    Hi,

    I have this strange issue with a client on my site.

    Computer model: HP EliteBook 820 G3.
    Operating system: Windows 10, build 17763.

    My client claims that when he turns WiFi off (in a traditional sense through Settings), the tiny light on the physical computer which signifies network activity is still active. As if WiFi was turned on "in the background" even though Windows claimed it was off. My client works with confidential data and is therefore worried that a background process is somehow using WiFi.

    When WiFi is off, the user cannot access the internet or other networking resources. Everywhere - software-wise - it looks like WiFi is off. Our sole issue is this little flickering light.

    My question to you guys is: Does anyone recognize this? Is WiFi somehow on in the background? How would I best troubleshoot this without having physical access to the machine as well as no remote access to the machine (since WiFi is... "off").

    Kind regards

    :)

    Windows 7 virtual wifi authentication mode

    Hello.

    Just a quick question to whoever is using windows 7 virtual wifi capability - when you type in "netsh wlan show hostednetwork", cmd window displays a list of settings for your hosted virtual wifi.

    I was wondering, is there a way to change authentication method from WPA2-Personal to simple WEP ?

    Cheers.

    Laptop WiFi question

    Hi.

    My internal single antenna wifi of my Inspiron N5030 goes to 65 Mbits/s and my usb wifi dongle goes to 72 Mbits/s.

    Currently they are both connected so are they both working at same time on WiFi or only my dongle cause the light of activity is flashing on my dongle?

    Thanx
