    Are you able to access by ethernet connection?
    Do you have a firewall installed (other than the windows one)?
    Have you run a virus check or spyware check? - if not then do so first

I also have a dv6000, and I was unable to access internet explorer. I had tried everything that was suggested, and it still was not working. I was researching online today (on another computer...which WAS working), and found other users saying that they uninstalled their Norton Antivirus software, and then it worked. I did that.......and I was finally able to get on internet explorer. I am now researching which antivirus program to use now. Hope this works for you. Just don't stay online until you are able to quickly download another antivirus program. Good Luck

I have had the same problem. If yours is like mine you will be able to access internet via the wired LAN connection, but the wireless card will completely have disappeared from device manager and the hp wireless assistant.

Are you aware that this is a known fault with the hp dv6000 series laptops? I bought mine in Dec 2006 and had it repaired for this fault, within warranty, about 11 months later. Since then I have noticed hp has extended the standard warranty for an extra year BUT ONLY for this particular problem. If you search for your model on the hp website it will tell you (by serial number) if your model qualifies for this special extended warranty program.

It doesn't seem there is a pemanent fix for this fault, because hp replaced my wireless card AND motherboard the first time round, and I have just started experiencing the same fault again!! I am hoping hp will still repair mine, for a second time, as I am just within the two years. Note that another symptom listed under the same fault is: no or intermittent display on the screen, which I have just started also getting and is much more of a bummer - so I'd recommend you get yours fixed before that happens.

As to the cause - I have just taken mine to a repair shop in Tottenham Court Road for a 2nd opinion and they say they get dozens of these every week, some out of warranty. Apparently when hp switched from the intel to the nvidia chipset for the graphics it started happening. Basically the nvidia runs very hot and the laptop's fan can't cool it down fast enough. It has probably fried part of your motherboard affecting the wireless and if you're unlucky the display may be next to go.

The chap also mentioned that the heat also warps the tacky plastic they use for the buttons at the top of the keyboard so these sometimes malfunction as well. For instance, you might find applications randomly starting from the 'quick launch' pad without you doing anything.

The verdict: I wouldn't buy hp again. This has really put me off!

Good luck.

The issue here may not be the laptop but the router strength of it's wireless radio. Do you have another laptop or a freind who can come over and test his connection? The DV series laptops have pretty decent antennae and wireless cards. Try to update the drivers for the WLAN card, make sure the antennae leads have a good secure fit at the ends where they attach to the card. If the router is a couple to several years old, it may need the firmware updated.

Cannot access the internet


I have looked at and reviewed your problem with your HP laptop DV6700Z and have the fallowing for you to aces.
First, if you are trying to access the internet via wireless, wait until you have established and wired connection.
If the blue light comes on in the front panel, the wireless is working, if not, you have a problem with the wireless modem.
Run a wire from your laptop to your modem and enter your my network, choose setup a internet connection.
Try to make a internet connection. Once you have established a connection, you can setup your wireless connection.
Hope this has helped you.

My daughter has the hp pavilion and it is not connecting to our wireless internet, can you help me


Step 1
Turn off all security at the wireless access point to test if it will connect. If it will, then the turn the security back on making sure you choose a security type that matches eg WEP or WPA at both the wireless access point and the laptop.
Increase the security to the highest level that both devices can use.
IF the wireless does not connect with security off, then test the laptop at another access point (friend's house?) to see if it the laptop. Or test the access point with someone else's known good laptop. From that point you will have isolated which component needs attention.

Some access points have codes, your laptop has to be able to pick up a access point. But in 2012, There will be a thing called Wi-max which means Wireless internet will be all over the world no matter where you are. So you can go on the internet wherever you are as long as you can connect to someones access point.

If all you're looking for is wireless internet within your home, then you can simply buy a wireless router off the shelf from Best Buy. However, a wireless router will only provide a range of a couple hundred feet, perhaps a couple of hundred yards. Essentially, it only provides internet access at a single fixed location. I'm getting the impression you're looking for something more.

If you're looking to have internet access wherever you go, no matter how far from home, you're going to need a subscription to wireless internet from a cellular provider such as AT&T or Sprint. They sell both internet access as well as the cards used to connect to the network, so check out their websites to explore your options.
