Check the device manager (right click on my computer> go to properties> click hardware> click device manager) and look for any yellow "?" or "!" marks on the icons, if none are found, make sure that the laptops "Wifi switch" is enabled.

Many people do not know that their laptop has a wifi switch that can turn the antenna on and off and make it appear as if the wireless adapter is not working.

Sometimes this switch is on the side of the laptop somewhere sometimes it is whats called a "soft switch" where you press FN and one of the number keys at the same time, the key usually has a little radio wave icon on it somewhere. - This is most likely the cause of your problem.

Compaq wifi


Replce the wifi card from another laptop (it should be working) and check it. If it is okay then the complaint is in the wifi card. If the problem still exist the south bridge or the input/output controller chip is faulty. Consult a chiplevel technician to replace the chip.

HP Pavilion Tx1000 not seeing wireless card. I put a new one in since the old one didn't seem to work, and not seeing the new card either.


That's the problem of the controller chip not the wireless itself. Faulty Nvidia chip on the motherboard. You will need to reflow the chip. Take it to the shop or get the DIY guide from www.msbinc.om

I had the same problem till one day when my computer completely went off on closing it it could not boot I googled somewhere on this forum and found out that the reason it could not boot was the graphics chip that had loosened i had it re-soldered and the next time i turned it on the wireless was working fine so my suggestion to you is that you have your chips re-soldered you never know... what may happen am happily working with my wireless card now

Unrecognised wireless chip atheros chip on hp


The wireless driver for Dell Inspiron 8500 is Broadcom according to DELL Support.
Check if have wrongly try to install the driver and the atheros chipset name is displayed on the Device Manager.

Uninstall the Wireless Driver (Atheros) and download the driver for your Wireless card from the link below

I restored my toshibia A55 and now my wireless doesn't work


sounds like you need to install the chip set drivers, then the wireless network drivers, if atheros card install before you install other drives, but chip set drivers first

The wireless card on my laptop broke


The wireless card is a pretty common replacement part, they can be replaced pretty easily. This is from HP, it explains how to rellace the wireless card, it is quite thorough, If you don't think you can do it then better to send it to them,http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/fastFaqLiteDocument?lc=es&dlc=en&cc=py&docname=c00273322
