I am assuming that any physical Wireless switch as well as the Fn key-special function key combination has been turned on.
If you can't see a wireless connection in your network connections and cannot see it in device manager, start the computer in safe mode and see if it appears there. If so, delete it and let the computer find it again. You can also access the HP website and download the wireless driver, as it may be missing or corrupted.
Just visit www.hp.com and choose downloads, enter your computer model and which operating system to get the driver.

Check the add hardware app to see if the computer recognizes it , if not you'll have to locate and download a driver for the internal router.

HP Pavilion dv9205us wifi issues


Is your version of Windows 7 32 or 64bit? Open the Network and Sharing Center, select Change Adapter settings, is the wireless adapter listed? Is the Wireless Adapter in the Device Manager under Network Adapters? Have you done ALL your Windows and HP updates? Usually Windows 7 will apply the generic driver to the devices. Do you see any UNKNOWN DEVICES in Device Manager? You can find drivers here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3340198 Some times you can use Vista drivers by changing compatibility. Post your findings and which version, 32 or 64 bit.

My wlan (function/F10) key doesn't work/light stays amber!!!!! No wireless internet/Internet only works when directly plugged into PC.


Check in device manager for the wireless card. Right click 'my computer' select 'properties' click the hardware tab and device manager, it should be listed as a network device. if it's listed update the drivers, it may just be disabled in windows. If it's listed as installed and working correctly in device manager it may be faulty.
you can also try running 'cmd' to lauch the command prompt and typing "ipconfig /all" this will show all available devices in your computer and their state.

Good luck.

HP Pavilion PC wireless light stays amber regardless of where I set the switch. Does not recognize my wireless network.


Switch on those generally is on when it is shifted to the right. Light will stay amber as long as the device is not active. If the switch is to the right, I would suggest trying this fix to see if you can get it to work.

Windows WiFi Fix,
Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.
Windows XP:
Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Does my HP s7750 have wireless internet connection. if so how do i turn it on or if not do i need to buy a wireless usb adaptor


check the box that the machine was packed. if you find a antenna, then, your machine have wireless LAN.
to set up the Wireless
1 Click the Windows Start Button on the taskbar.
2 Type Device Manager into the Search box, and then click Device Manager to open
the Device Manager window.
3 Click Network adapters. Your WLAN device should be listed here. The WLAN
device may include the term wireless, wireless LAN, or 802.11.
4 Click the Windows Start Button on the taskbar.
5 Type Network and Sharing Center into the Search box, and then click Network
and Sharing Center
to open the Network and Sharing Center window.
6 Click Add a device to the network and follow any onscreen instructions.
For more information about setting up a wireless network:
 Click the Windows Start Button on the taskbar, click Help and Support, and
then type Setting up a wireless network into the Search Help box.
NOTE: If no WLAN device is listed, either your computer does not have an integrated
WLAN device, or the driver for the device is not properly installed.

If you have vista click the start button and in the start search type "hp wireless assistant". It should show up in your list while you type it. Click on it. Once the assistant box shows up, click on "properties". A "settings" box should show up. The main one you need here is "independant controls for installed wireless device". Check that box. The other ones are icons and indicators that you can check at your discretion. If in doubt, check them all. Hit the "apply" button. Then in the upper right hand side of the box hit the button that says "turn on". This should activate the device and if you have a light up indicator on your computer, it should change color or light up. That should do it. Kind of weird how it gets to that point.
