Try going to Control panel/network connections and see if it shows the wireless lan. if it does then right click and select uninstall. When that has finished reboot the machine and let it find and install the wifi lan again. Now check it. If still no go it could be a variety of problems including the keyboard itself or even the wifi network card

My wireless assistant has stopped working and the light stays orange


I had the exact same problem...and the wireless adapter was not visible under device manager. The light stayed orange with the switch in either the on or off position. I did all the whole driver update thing and eventually replaced the wireless adapter but no change. Finally I went into the BIOS (F10 on startup) and reset the bios configuration to the default settings EXIT>LOAD SETUP DEFAULTS). It has worked perfectly ever since.

Sounds like you've got a bad driver from Windows update which is not a first. Firstly turn off automatic windows updates so it doesnt auto-update again. Where you re-installed the drivers from in Device Manager choose uninstall and also there will be an option to delete the files associated with the driver, get rid of those. Heres a link straight to the HP website http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=au&lang=en&product=3636382 there is 3 drivers to choose from either look in device manager or it doesnt matter if you try the wrong 1 it just wont find the hardware. If this all works fine turn back on windows update but choose let me decide when to download and instal then uncheck the wireless update, this will hide it from all future updates. Please let me know how it all goes i still have a few more ideas if not. Cheers from Scott

Same BS wifi problem as everyone else


Have you tried restoring the computer back a couple of days to see if that clears up the hardware hiccup? You can also go to device manager and uninstall the device and delete the drivers. Turn the laptop off, take the wireless card out. Start the laptop back up and boot it fully....After a few, shut down again. Install the wireless card and restart the laptop. When asked to install the drivers for new device found, say ok, make sure you are online with an ethernet line so windows can go online and load the newest drivers unless you have them on your C drive already.

Wireless not working


Does it have any more letters, etc., in the model ?

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/pfinder?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&tool=&query=Presario+F500

I tend to not use HP or anybodies Wireless Assistants. But you ought to be able to see in Device Manager and Networks wether Windows thinks that the wireless card is working or not. Windows uses Wireless Zero Configuration Service to control Wireless Cards. You might have to tell the HP gizmo to let windows manage the wireless.

You might also have to turn the computer over and find where the wireless card is - and check that it is still seated properly in it's slot. That's a pretty advanced thing - and should only be done with the Service Manual or Owners Manual at hand to tell you how.

Mainly the hardware should be showing up in the Device Manager as "working properly" - if not maybe somehow the device driver software got damaged or removed?
