    I have the same problem. I recently installed Vista SP2 & the WiFi started working, albeit until I rebooted. So, I know it works & there is a software issue. I followed Jordan Lane's advice and installed a new graphics driver fromhttp://laptopvideo2go.com/ but this didn't work. It is the latest driver v180.70. Jordan, could you tell me which driver version you installed? I would like to give it a go and see if it works. Thanks in advance, Simon Elliott :-)

I have had the same thing happen to my presario F551AU of the F500 series notebook, the light was forever orange and hp wireless assistant didnt do anything and reinstalling broadcom 802.11 WLan driver didnt work - I thought i had exhausted all options. Seeing as the warranty had expired, i couldnt get hp to fix it and they werent willing to help for free over the phone. However, i found on another site that installing a new graphics driver would help....AND IT DID. You DONT need those sour dollar-chasing amateurs at HP to help fix the problem just download and install the latest forceware driver and restart the computer and smak-bang she's up and running again.

I got my driver from:
http://laptopvideo2go.com/

Just check wether you're hardware is go6100
or go 6150 and that the forceware model you download
is compliant with youre hardware model (6100 or 6150)

Note: You have to uninstall your current nvidia(which was a bit scary coz i thought the screen wouldnt work after doing such a thing but it was all good - it just switched to 600x400 or whatever).

If this doesnt work, have a snoop round that website. Theres heap's geeks on there so you should get alot of help.

Sweet as bro,
Jordan Lane

Restart your computer, then right-click on my computer-go to properties, ---locate and click on device manager, when you get to device manager page, locate your wireless network adapter under network adapters and right-click on it, then select uninstall, after this, go to actions on that same page, and select scan for hardware changes, this would re-install and solve your WLAN adapter problem.
Another thing you can just do is, after uninstalling it, just restart your system. At the next system restart, your PC will automatically re-install it and fix the problem.
Hope it helps you out!
Goodluck!

Hello Handbag.
The issue which you are facing is a known issue. This is common in F500 series notebooks.
You can get it repired for free of cost by contacting HP technical support, even if the notebook is out of warranty.

And check if you product is listed here. Then contact HP support by chat or email., then you can get the notebook repaired.
