Wireless Does Not Work

My F500 Presario is about 2 years old. About 2 months ago my wireless connection stopped working. I've updated drivers etc but still no connection. The light on the front of my laptop remains yellow.

    My wireless card stopped working on January 1, 2009. Was working fine on December 30, 2008. Purchased this laptop in October of 2007. LED showing wireless status would switch from amber to blue when wireless switch was turned on. LED now stays continually amber regardless of whether the switch is on or off. I also can no longer open the HP Wireless Assistant software program.

    My F500 Presario is about 18 months old. Wireless connection worked good two days ago and now won't work at all. My status light is amber and would turn blue when wireless switch was turned on. The light now stays amber whether switch is turned off or on. I also downloaded new driver and it still doesn't work. HP Wireless Assistant software will not launch as well.

It's a 'known issue' with this model, and the reason that HP have increased the warranty to 24mths for this and other systems. Free repair route details available at:

You have to install the WiFi card with an Installer before it is recognized by device manager... go to the link below, and download the WiFi driver and install as Administrator. You will need to know your exact model number to do so.. Do NOT just get a WiFi driver that will NOT work, you must get installer version.

  2. Try clicking the button activating the wireless card.
  3. Reinstall wireless card drivers, select drivers from Compaq Presario V6205NR Notebook PC
  4. If all that did not work, then the internal adapter is faulty. Buy an external wlan adapter:WLAN Adapter WL-167G-£12.90 new

Wireless not working


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

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?

Won't stay connected to internet


that might take an uninstall and reinstall of either the ethernet drivers, or the operating system. I haven't heard that, but I have had machines that aren't as reliable in the wireless as they could be. it's possible that something in the workings of it has gone haywire, but it sounds like an OS issue.

Back up everything you want to keep and reinstall the OS if possible.

I have COMPAQ PRESARIO F30US the wireless assistant is not workin


First check to make sure that you're wireless internet is turned on. Sometimes there is a button to push above the keyboard and others it is an FN key combination. If that does not work then go into Device Manager. Look for your wireless adapter, if there is a yellow! or a Red X, then right click on it and update driver. Finally, in Device manager right click on your wireless adapter and do a driver rollback. This will uninstall the new driver and give back your old one, if your old one was working. Repost after you tryed those three options.
