Cover it with a piece of tape.;) I seriously doubt there is a fix for that.

Do what you need to do, to just be happy .

As far as I can see from my wife's CQ70 which has the same blue/orange wifi led, the blue only shows if the wifi is actively uploading or downloading. It does not show blue just because it is "on".

I think that is right, but have never spent too much time investigating as the wifi just works extremely well on that machine. What does the colour matter, as long as wireless works OK?
