Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook
Posted by Anonymous on
If the button or on/off switch that is provided for the WiFi (may have a line with three curved lines coming off of it as a symbol for the button) is toggled or enabled and the wifi won't turn on, then there is a good chance that the driver for the wifi isn't loaded.
You can tell if the driver is missing by opening the Control Panel, opening System, opening Device Manager and looking for a Network Adapter category. Expand the Network Adapter category by clicking the plus sign and look for a WiFi adapter in there. If it has a yellow exclamation point ! on it then there is a problem with the network card and it needs to be reinstalled. If there isn't a WiFi or Wireless Network adapter in there, chances are it is found under a category called "Other Devices" and it still needs to be reinstalled.
To install it, you will probably have to delete the device out of the device manager (highlight it and press the delete key on the keyboard) and then plug your laptop into wired network connection (usually your router or internet service modem will have a network port that you can plug into directly with an ethernet cable). You'll go to the manufacturer's website, click on support and search for drivers for your laptop. Be sure to go to the network section and download and install the network driver for your system.

As far as I know - the wireless button is on the left of the power button (the middle one)
If I remember corectly, the button should have three "modes" tap once - bluetooth, tap twice - wifi, tap three times - both.
But that could be just my memory acting up and there could be only one mode (on/off) in which case - check if the wireless is enabled in the system settings and/or BIOS.

SOURCE: I am not able to
"Wireless LAN" is the same as wifi. The HP 6535b does come shipped with wifi by default. The wifi can be turned on an off with a button on the laptop. The button looks like a typical wifi symbol (or a palm tree) as is located on the top panel above the keyboard, just to the left of the HP logo. If it is turned on it will be blue, if it's off it will be orange. As long as that is on you should be able to see any wifi networks in your area. If you can see the network but can't connect (even if you type in the right key) the issue may be that the wifi network is encrypted with WPA2 and you don't have the proper Windows patch installed. If you have Windows XP you'll need service pack 3 or the WPA2 patch from Microsfot (google "KB893357" and it's the first link).
