Hi there.
The wireless switch on the front bottom of the laptop, it's suppose to be blue when the button is on the right.
Right click on computer and select manage, go to device manager, and go to Network Adapters, try to see a network adapter called Broadcom, if it doesn't appear, it means that your computer doesn't recognize the wireless card and you may have to reinstall the drivers.
Please let me know how you get on.

Good luck

Wierless doesn't connect even when there is a signal, acts like wierless is off.dv6000


If, when you turn on the switch you should see a blue light. If it is an amber color, in the control panel, in administrative tools go to the device manager, click on network settings, and reinstall the wifi. If you still don't see a blue light, it may be your wifi card. After many years of use they seem to burn out and need to be replaced. It's located on the backside of your laptop. They don't cost much if you know where to look.

Wireless switch is amber


Your computer is not detecting the wireless network, that's all. Leave it in an enabled state (even thought it's amber), and try a shutdown and restart.
If not, force it to search for wireless networks. It should detect.
By logging off the internet, what do you mean? Shutting your browser, disabling the wireless device under network connections, switching off the radio on the switch on your computer, or something else?

HP DV6000 no wireless internet


Hard to say when I dont know the exact model.

If it is an Atlantis(DV6000-6499) it is most likely the mainboard, and it might be coverd by an extended warranty.

If it is an Ares(DV6500-6999) you should try updatigng th BIOS first. If that doesnt help i would go for another WLAN card. It might also be a defective mainboard, but that doesnt happen as often on Ares models as Atlantis.

My HP Pavilion dv6000 the wireless connection stopped working and the light does not go blue to connect to internet. This happened 2 days ago. I can connect using a cable.


Check if it is only a software problem. Usually the blue light indicator functions with the physical slider switch. So even it is disabled in the network properties the indicator still lights when the physical switch is at "on" position.

DV4000 cant connect to wireless network


HP bought several motherboards from the same company in China. These boards work for about 15 months then they can't find the wireless card. This is caused by a defect in the North Bridge chip overheating over time. This chip is not replaceable at the local level. You can send it back to HP for a replacement and sometimes they will charge you $300 - $500, or you can just replace the motherboard yourself. Check with them first since there is an ungoing lawsuit regarding these boards. Either way the only fix is to replace the motherboard. This is also a problem for the dv6000 and the dv9000 models. HP knows that 30% of these will fail.

Mike
