    1. Did it ever work?
    2. Did you turn off your wireless in the bios?
    3. Do you see a blue light
    4. Put in make/model of your laptop. We're pretty helpless without it. There is little consistency between brands so we need the brand.

    Try to be a little more specific in terms of what happened, when it happened and that's going to help all of us help you.

I have V6211AU with function of inbuilt bluetooth and wifi,if u have both inbuilt devices, its mean u can use it. but without drivers u cant use it, so first of all get ur drivers log on comapq website.
see left-hand side, and as a new user register in it first, with ur mail id and pass word, its totally free.
then in serch box, write ur laptop series no. which is below of ur laptop.after it select ur operating system, like windows xp, or vista. then u will find a complete list uf ur laptop drivers only. download first-- bluetooth driver,wirless driver,and broadcom LAN driver, its necessary for ur inbuilt devices. after downloading install them,

during install them, plz keep on ur bluetooth devices switch, like blue signal indicating.after installing them restart ur system, and on ur bluetooth.after sometime in right corner u will find it. and u can also start it from controll panel-click on HP wireless assistant.

its complete process, but u can download all the drivers which is on this site, for future, cause its complete driver for ur laptop.
best of luck. ATUL KUMAR.

Wifi is on, but the laptop says it isn't and won't show connect points available. What's up with that?

1. Make sure it is not disabled in device manager.
2. Make sure the WIFI switch is toggled to on
3. Hold down FN + F8 key to toggle wireless on/off

Let me know if any of the above works.

Best regards,

Cannot determine a wifi network

Hi there. First of all try holding your laptop near your router and see if you can find anything. If this doesn't help it could be several things. It's either your router not working or your laptop not detecting the network.
If possible try using a different device to see if the network is detected. if it isn't, there's something wrong with the router, which i'm not gonna go too deep in because it could be a wide variation of issues. The easiest thing to do in this case restoring your router to factory settings by holding the reset button on your router for 20-ish seconds.
If the network was detected by another device, try checking if you accidentally turned off the wifi by pressing a button (This happens very very often). try looking for a button on your keyboard or somewhere else on your laptop that turns your wifi on/off and see if you can find the network now.
If you still can't find the network, try making sure your wifi drivers are installed, you can install them with a disk that came with your laptop. Try repeating the previous laptop-related steps and see if it can find the network now.

I hope I was able to help.

My Wi-Fi isn't working isn't working, no matter what I try or do it is not getting any access points, what could be the problem?

Boot to F8 then select Last known good configuration. If no fix then boot back to F8 then safe mode then system restore from the time everything was working fine.

If all no fix do the following:

Check if your laptop can see other network aside from your home network.
If your laptop cannot see any network check if the wifi or wireless switch is turned on.
If the wifi or wireless switch is on then uninstall / reinstall the wlan or wifi driver.

WiFi radio is turned off

The EZ button software must be installed to turn the radio on or off. The switch on the side does nothing.
