I have V6211AU Compaq Laptop. I used to connect via wireless some time back. But not I am not able to do that. Tried everything from reinstalling the drivers, downloading it from HP website, Reformating the system.
I do not see wireless lan adapters in Device manager, have enabled it from BIOS as well, enabled wireless zero configuration as well. But it still does not show up.

Re: Wireless not working
Do you have built in wireless or plug n play wireless.
if you have plug n play wireless and it isnt plugged in(connected)
it wont show in device manager if its built in you should at least see wireless icon.
if you downloaded the driver from site its a self extracting file that unpacks the software to install it doesnt install in other words you need to locate the extracted file and execute it which will install the driver then pc will detect device and install to system.
also try installing wifi manager and use without zero config.

It sounds like a problem I had. While traveling, my laptop connected with a WIFI network with the same name as my home network.It was my son's. He gave me his password and I entered it on both my machine and my wife's. When I got home I had the same problem. I tried everything including re-installing the WIreless drivers a few times. I could cable connect but every time I tried wireless, it told me to enter a password then came back with "SORRY CHARLIE" Called my son and he said probably the wireless password was written to my registry and my laptop was telling me to give the password. As my router was expecting a different password it wouldn't connect. The cable connection did not check the registry since it uses a different driver set. The registry entry for the router password must be deleted. The only way I knew how was to re-install my operating system. This is throwing the baby with the bathwater. I am sure someone out there knows how to find and erase a Register entry.
many times this happens what u r saying...... the most probable cause could be non-availability or very week availability of network signals..... IT COULD be also due to any change you have made to IP adderess so first get conformed of the IP adderess u are using
u can connect using special cables...u must have a TV out slot in the laptop
Wireless i am nto sure...as TVs dont have softwares that can be configured to receive signal using wireless systems, unless ur TV and laptop is connected thru some connecting medium(a converter box/ADS instant DVD maker etc)
First you must sure that your wireless card is working Second confirm your wireless setup is right. Then reset your wireless account. Or your laptop battery cant supply the power to your wireless card, check the metal connection.
This is just one source. I did a google search for USB wireless adapters. They are used by many users. Generally these units cost the same whether online or at the local Radio Shack, etc. because of shipping.
You need to reinstall the wireless driver for your model laptop which you can find at the hp/compaq website. Just click on the link for support and provide information on the model of your laptop and you will be redirected to the proper web page that contains all the drivers for your particular laptop. I did this when my internal wifi did not respond when I pressed the wifi button. After installing the driver everything worked great.
