Can you check to show whether your wireless adapter is showing up in Device Manager? (Go to Control Panel if you don't know where to find Device Manager) Your wireless card should show up under Network Adapters. If it does not, check your unidentified devices for "Unidentified NIC" or something like that.

If you do see it as an unidentified device, visit the HP site's support section to download the latest drivers for it.

If it is listed in the correct section, make sure it is enabled by right clicking its name and selecting enable. (This option will not be visible if it is already enabled)

If it is identified and enabled, try to uninstall and reinstall HP Wireless Assistant.

If none of those work, you may have a hardware issue and you should gather your warranty and support information and give HP a call.

SOURCE: WLAN adapter no longer recognized by laptop

We had this same problem too with an HP TX2000 and we tried all the usual things too of updating all the drivers, removing, reinstalling etc etc. We were then getting the signal sometimes and not other times. What appears to have helped was some advice we saw to temporarilly take out the battery and hold the start button for 20 seconds to discharge the capacitor. However, the simplest solution has proved not to put the battery in at all when using wireless at all, and we seem to be able to see wireless networks always. I know it sounds bizarro and is.

My IT friend and I after 3 1/2 hours of phutzing around have soem ideas abour why this might be the case. Firstly this is running the AMD chip which according to other sources seems to be the only one with this problem. Second this computer has a history of over heating. I was also wondering if the battery charger is over heating the computer and is next to the wireless module on the motherboard??? I will leave that up to someone else to work out.

My laptop can't get a wireless connection. Won't let me click on the HP wireless assistant. In the BIOS; should "network adapters" be enabled or disabled?

definitely enabled. also check your device manager if there is a bang ( yellow or red mark) at the side of the icon under network adapters. if so, download the latest network driver from HP website.

Wireless button

If your 6710b has wireless, the button is a little touch icon above the f4 key on your keypad, about 3 inches to the right of your power button; it's supposed to look like a little picture of an antenna with radio signals coming from it (( | )). When it's on, the picture will light up blue.

Wireless not functioning

There should be an indicator LED to show that the wireless device is on. If no light, you need to turn it on. If it's red, the device has failed. Quickest/cheapest fix? Buy and install a USB wireless adapter.

Wireless Button Disabled

After one month of trying everything, I finally figured this one out.  First turn off and restart your computer.  Then press F10 to enter the System BIOS Settings.  Select F9 (Setup Defaults) and when it asks Load Default Configuration Now? , Enter YES.  Then, press F10 (Save and Exit) and when it asks Save Configuration Changes And Exit Now, Enter YES.  This should restore the wireless LAN button to its original factory settings.  Once you restart the computer the button will be listed as disabled, but press on the button and it should work again.  I hope this helps someone else out!
