Does it show up in the Device Manager? Does it say it is working correctly? If it says it doesn't have a driver, the manufacture's website should have it. Although not showing up in the BIOS if it used too doesn't sound good. Try reseating the WiFi card again. If that doesn't work, it sounds like it is dead.

Wireless button, won't come on. Stays the orange color.


This could be caused by one of the following issues:

WLAN is disabled in the BIOS. Check BIOS that WLAN is enabled. Update to the latest BIOS if not already:

If all these do not work, contact HP to replace switch cover which controls the wireless button, power button, mute, volume. Does the mute and volume buttons work?

Presario f730us wireless light stays red and in device manger has nothing about wireless


This is a flaw with Nforce chipset and Broadcom wireless cards. But getting HP to admit to it is another story. Every F700 used on a daily basis will have their wireless fail. Here are the solutions to try and resolve this...
1. Buy and install new wireless card ( has worked for me numerous times. Cheapest solution, $25 BUT may not work)
2. Buy a USB wireless adapter (little bit more money but will definitely get you up and running $50)
3. Replace motherboard (refabed cost around $120 or so. There is a reason so many of these go bad... Thank you hp!)

Other than that don't believe it s software/virus problem as it is a pure bad hardware issue. I am still a fan of Compaq laptops.. Just have to ignore this little bubmle on some engineers work station :)

WIFI not working


This is a common problem on hp laptops in the 2000 and 6000 series. It is caused by a manufacturing defect on the mainboard. You may try and update your BIOS and see if it fixs it.. If it doesnt you will have to contact HP and they will give you a free repair if you still are under warranty (the warranty is 2 years here in Denmark)

BIOS update:

There is a known problem and being out of warranty isn't the end of it. You may be able to get them to fix it or try this yourself.

There are Vista and XP versions of the installers and the drivers and the bios is different depending on whether you have an AMD or an Intel processor, so be careful which items you attempt. Good luck.

On mine, I had to update the bios, uninstal the old hp wireless assistant and uninstall the wireless driver from My Computer (right mouse click) Properties - Device Manager - Network Adapters, then I installed the latest HP wireless assistant from above page and the latest Intel wireless adapter from above. Check the position of your wireless switch on the front lip of the laptop. One way should make the light go blue, for on, the other shows amber for off. If you are in the bad state pre fix, both positions will show amber. HP assistant will show the device is disabled, but you won't be able to do anything for it as there will likely be yellow tags on all the network adapters.
Mine works now, but I'm having other issues with installing SP1 for Vista. Anyway, hope this helps

Internal Wireless adapter failed


Your wireless zero configuration being manipulated by the add-on service of manufacturer software. first you can manually turn in the Wireless Zero Configuration by typing services.msc on run menu. After you run the services you will see Wireless Zero configuration please enable and start it with the given option.

Next you can open the Wireless Network Connection option, uncheck the add on protocols, such as AEGIS and WLAN protocol. after restart computer should work with wireless without problem.

Please post if you need further assistance.

Good Luck

Broadcom hp dv6000


First do right click on you my computer icon and choose properties ->hardware->device manager->network adapters and expand it, see your broadcom wireless is there or not, if not obtain a diver file for your model from HP support site and run it so that your wireless adapter will start working and enable the wireless on and see its working.

Wireless connection no longer works after vista upgrade


HP uses "branded" wireless modules,which means it's got to be HP or it doesn't get to play.
Does device manager see the wireless device? I've had similar situations with the 8000s. Always the driver or the wireless utility was the problem. Try letting windows manage the device, or if you already are, disable that and use the devices utiliy to manage it.
BTW, most systems consider BT as wireless.
Good luck, hope that helps
