Question about HP (407576-001) 802.11a/g/b Wireless Adapter
I have a compaq F700 and when I turn on the wireless switch, the LED does not turn ON. The adapter does not show up on my device manager and I tried re installing the driver but it stil did not work.
I would like to know if this is a hardware problem or if there is any other way I could fix it.
Posted with no OS stated, windows XP . guess at VISTA.
is your photo top let above it? a mini-pci card, inside
or some other type, is it orginal?, not updated ?
it has words on that sticker, and matter BIG TIME.
what drivers match and must match THAT and your Unstated OS.
f700 as in a 2007 latptop.
im reading your service manual took me 2 second to get it.
Atheros AR242 (is one of three used) then.
this PC came new with Vista 32 or 64?
guess what, that needs to match to. and not stated.
ill guess 32bit.
no full service tag shown here, so cant guess what you REALLY have, never can we,,, the p/n on said tag tells which of the 3 chips your PC came with new.
2 Atheros chips or the Broadcom.
there is one magic trick run all 3 drivers the one that dont barff loading is the good one.
if lucky, the HP SP12345,exe loader check to be sure
the one you picked matches your card.
if the card was change, (like a newer intel card ) then all 3 fail.
if all that is confusing
see your F700 series, PC , its NOT ONE PC its all these
and unstated by you,off that service tag sticker

If you can’t see it in the device manager under network adapters or unknown devices, it’s probably a hardware failure

SOURCE: Wireless network adapter - Vista
This may sound stupid, but a possible solution to some of the problems above might be to turn on the wireless properties on on the laptop (may not be the correct terminology). On my laptop the wireless switch does not turn on the wireless, unless the wireless radio button is pre-selected. This is found in a pop up at the top centre of the screen, or possibly by right clicking on the wireless icon and selecting 'enable' or 'radio on'. In my case it certainly was not a driver or hardware issue.

According to manual. You are to install "Driver" first. Thus, turn your computer off. Remove Wireless card,rReboot, run Dlink supplied "Driver" while your wireless card is still out, complete the installation. Turn your computer off, install hardware, turn back computer on.
If this doesn't solove the problem, try allocating your computer near to router and try above step again.

Please check whether your notebook Wireless Adapter is detected in the Notebook. To check this Click start and in the start search box type Device Manager and press enter. This will open Device Manager. Then Click on + sign next to network adapters and please check whether the wireless adapter is listed.( Broadcom or Intel Wireless Lan ) . If it is not listed then you need to install BIOS update for your notebook. After installing BIOS update it should resolve the issue. However, if the issue persists. I am afraid that you need to get your notebook repair.
All the Dv 6000, DV9000 and V6000 notebook has the manufacture defect with the Wireless adapter.
If you find above information is helpful. Please rate me.

Dell has a known problem with driver conflic the best remedy is to right click on my computer click on property open hardware uninstall the driver there and restart the conputer but first make sure you download the driver from intel and burn them on a cd then when you reinstall you won't have to try to figure out if everything is downloading also in security make sure that you allow this site so that all the drivers download.
but most of the time if these driver are on a card that is micrsoft certified it will be in the driver file and will reload automaticly when you restart the computer after uninstalling and it should elimenate the driver conflic.
