Question about PC Desktops
My built-in wireless in my HP Pavilion Elite m9417c desktop computer isn't picking up any wirless networks. I put the computer right next to my linksystem and it is not finding the network; the wireless light isn't even "on." All my other computers are picking up my wireless router.
If your built-in wireless is not working then you must check your wireless connection first and find out the problem from where the connection was generated. Hewlett Packard is one of the most prominent manufactures of notebook computers today, to just check out the switches of your wireless network connection and then rebuilt the connections your wireless network built by you.

Wow, that's surprising. HP puts on an external wireless antenna attached to the casing, but there's no card inside? Crazy.
If HP is going to sell you a wireless card, you can bet they'll charge you far more than you'd pay elsewhere.
I suggest that you visit NewEgg.com or Buy.com to buy a wireless PCI card. These are easy to install and setup. You basically can't go wrong with many of the choices out there, but it's best to observe the product feedback. My recommendation is to get one with a corded external antenna. This way you can be assured of getting a very strong signal when you're not immediately near the wireless router. Rosewill makes some good ones. If you do plan on having your computer fairly close to the router, be sure to get one that also has an RJ45 wire socket too. That way if you're doing heavy duty downloads, you can increase your speed with a long cord directly connected to the router.

There may be button that switches on wireless on the keyboard or on the side of the machine.
Also try the FN key plus the correct Fkey with the wireless symbol
