Wireless Broadcom 802.11 problems

This is driving me crazy. I have a HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop. Works pretty good and has for the 15 months I've had it. Just last week I lost my Broadcom??? It is in my C/swsetup. I have it and updated drivers. My device manager does NOT recognize it at all. I haven't found the common thread to fix it. Sometimes I delete Broadcom, reload/execute file/shutdown/f8/reset bios. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't??? Sometimes I have to repeat the process 5 or 6 times before device manager recognizes it.

1. I have tried to "add new hardware",,,no where to be found???, but once again, it is in my C drive where it is suppose to be.
2. Wireless button is turned on.

Thank you

Hello hskaggs,
At this point you have tried the various troubleshooting procedures and have determined that the wireless card is faulty. To save yourself alot of time and effort, I would advise you to buy an external wireless adapter and disable the faulty internal one. Yes, it is a pain but going through this routine just to connect is not ideal.

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

First do right click on you my computer icon and choose properties ->hardware->device manager->network adapters and expand it, see your broadcom wireless is there or not, if not obtain a diver file for your model from HP support site and run it so that your wireless adapter will start working and enable the wireless on and see its working.
