HP Pavillion dv5000 wireless connection issue

Just bought this as a used laptop. Everything seems to be working but the wireless connection. When I hook it up via hard wire the internet is accessible. I have a specific DNS ip that my ISP requires to use so I have put that in under TCP properties and as I said it works fine on hard wire.When trying to detect wireless networks it shows NONE available and it is sitting within 1 foot of my own wireless router. I have another laptop it works fine , but it has a swtich you need to turn off and on in order to get on wireless. So I was wondering is there some sort of on/off ''Switch'' on the HP I am not aware of or could this be another issue? Any suggestions would be appreciated for I am getting very aggrevated with it ...lol

Idk if people re still having this problem. But I had it when fixing my sisters laptop. And just hit f10 during the boot and its either in the second tab or third. And its a wlan option. Enable that. And boot up and enable through HP wireless assistance. Hope this helps someone

Go into the control panel, Network adapters and you should see the wireless adapter. If it has a red x on it, it is disabled. If it is disabled, no amount of button pressing will turn it on. Right click and select ENABLE. Then close the panels and hold down the button that is under the light for 2 or 3 seconds and the light should come on. Another thing you can do is replace the keyboard. The button that turns on the wireless is built into the keyboard. If the ribbon cable is bad, or the socket has dirt in it, the button might not be working. You could use a meter and isolate the button circuit all the way to the ribbon cable connector before buying a keyboard too. If you have not taken apart the laptop before this is probably not the problem though. Other thoughts are if the hard drive was recently loaded, xp media center edition might have picked up the wrong driver and doesnt know how to process the "on" signal. Maybe there is a utility or an application that is on the manufacturers website that provides the wireless client - sometimes they have a "transmiter on" clicky box.

Cannot access my internet explorer browser or AOL using DSL


Looks like you may have a few different problems. Right now you cannot get your wireless laptop to see your router, correct? If this is a newer laptop for you, then the problem may be too simple. On the new hp laptops above the keyboard are light indicators for sound, volume and wireless connections. They are also buttons. The wireless one is on the right of the volume control. You turn your wireless on and off by pressing on the light. It should turn from a yellow/orange to a deep blue. Blue is on, yellow/orange is off.

Leave feedback if this was the problem. Otherwise leave more information just about the wireless setup.

One of two HP laptops connects to network but quit on Internet


did you play with your wireless router settings..?? When it is shown as unidentified, you have most probably set as hide network name . other computers may show up the name if you have saved the network settings on them at least once.

Drivers are fine as they are able to detect the network.

HP laptop shows full internet signal, wont let me connect


First, the "Network Cable Is Unplugged" - don't worry about that. That is just informing you that your WIRED connection is unplugged, which is fine because you are using wireless.

Now the actual issue of no internet...first try by unplugging your internet modem for 20 seconds, and plugging it back in. Next do the same with your wireless router. At this point your computer will disconnect form the wireless network and you may need to reconnect it. After the reconnect see if you still have the same issue, but chances are it should be fixed :-)

If that does not work let me know and we can further troubleshoot the issue!

Normally, the driver you have with the hardware is the driver you must you, as it may cause all sorts of conflics trying to use others. Intervideo would not have written a driver for your dvbt card, only their own.
