    I have a NVIDIA nForce 10/100 mbps Ethernet installed. There are no yellow exclamations.

    I reinstalled the software but that didn't help. My wireless light is on but it still says there is no wireless network adapter installed and configured.

Most of the laptops those are the common issues Wireless are not working, what i suggest is try to renistall the Driver for the wireless card then check it in the Device Manager, if it doesn't show in Device Manager the wireless card could be faulty.

How to check Device manager.

Start->Control Panel->Device Manager

Inside Device Manager look for Network Adapter and check if your wireless card is detected.

I have hp pavilion dv6325ca laptop can now i upgrade my laptop with internal bluetooth module as already i have a internal wireless adapter can u suggest how to upgrade

The easiest option for you is to buy a Bluetooth dongle. It connects via USB, and if you get a compact one like the one in the image below you won't even notice it on the laptop. You can get one from Ebay, they are dirt cheap, under $2.

My DV6000 stopped recognising any wireless netwrorks ( I have 2+ neighboors'). The wireless adaptor light is red.

Click start, then type cmd into the run box.
When command prompt window opens type
Now if the ping failed - your adapter is dead-sorry
If it comes back without packets lost - adapter is fine and your neighbors are onto you (just jocking) adapter is fine and there maybe another hundred reasons , but they all have to do with networks.

Wireless network card

Hi there.
The wireless switch on the front bottom of the laptop, it's suppose to be blue when the button is on the right.
Right click on computer and select manage, go to device manager, and go to Network Adapters, try to see a network adapter called Broadcom, if it doesn't appear, it means that your computer doesn't recognize the wireless card and you may have to reinstall the drivers.
Please let me know how you get on.

Good luck

Wireless adapter is not working.

Go to the HP website and get the latest version of the driver for the wireless adapter. Then got to Start---->Control Panel--->Add/Remove programs and unistall the current driver. Then got to the System folder in the Control Panel. Go to the device manager tab and go down the list until you find network adapters. Left click the x beside the name and left click on the wireless and it should turn blue. Right click and choose uninstall. Then reboot the computer. If the device is still working the computer should find the "new hardware" as windows loads. Then when it asks for the device use the new driver to install it.
