WLAN not working on my hp Pavilion dv2000

I have an HP Pavilion dv2000 that used to work perfectly, especially with the wireless internet, by a switch in the front of the machine.

I woke up one day and I tried to hop online, but all that was available was Bluetooth and WLAN was no longer an option. Anytime i tried to search for networks to hop on, there were none available, when there were always networks available before. I checked the drivers, uninstalled and reinstalled them, went into the BIOS to enable the Internal Network Adapter, but nothing is working. Plus, i am not covered by the Extended Service Plan offered by HP for Laptop repairs.

I think i may be missing something very minor here, but i am at a loss for what to do. could you please help me?

    I have the same problem. Only to start Wifi I must restart Wireless Zero every time I boot up--it does not start up even though it is set for automatic startup, and next I need to go to change advanced settings and then to the irelss Networks Tab and check Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings.  I suspect there is another HP service that is disabling the Windows Wireless Zero configuration and this checkbox.  I'm still working on a solution.

Nspimt here again,

After messing with this WLAN issue on my free HP dv2410us and reading many sites, the easiest way to connect to any net is simply use USB Wireless device. The Laptop should not have any problem identifying it and it works well. I suggest using the extension cord that comes with most USB adapters. You can move it around to get better signal strength. I also find that by disabling the WLAN, restart, then shut down for about 5 or 10 miuntes, then start and PRAY it loads the Broadband/WLAN Driver. If it loads and works, enjoy and leave it running more than shutting it down. If you hve OCD like I do, lol, it will bother you that it doesn't work but just plug the USB-G in and you will be okay.

My brother spent some bucks on this Laptop from HP and right after the Warranty was done the Motherboard went bad. HP has identified this problem but really does not do a good job of standing behind the product. With todays economic condition, I'd think $ about that. Money talks and Bulls*** walks.

This could be caused by one of the following issues:

HP Pavillion wireless won't work


First, look thru HP Health check and download all recommended.
Second, go to HP site, download and reinstall WLAN driver and HP Wireless assistant software
Third, download at the same site HP WinFlash BIOS Update and update BIOS (READ and FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS VERY CAREFULLY)

Reboot.

Pavilion wont stay connected to internet through linksys router


without looking at laptops myself, if it's not a problem where somehow a connection got loose or built up dust and debris, then it could be a hardware issue where the pavilion wifi isn't as good as the vaio's. The same thing happens to me on my hp pavilion dv2000.
