Troubleshoot your wireless network with HP mobile and wireless solutions

update (flash) the Bios
install all the Nvidia updates (chipset and Video)
Audio
Modem (only if you use this to access the internet or possibly will in the future - ie on vacation)
Hp software updates (Quick Launch and Q/L Critical update)
Essential Vista updates (these are the ONLY Microsoft related updates I installed)
Finally the Wireless Driver update (in my case the Broadcom W/L Card)
and the little blue light came back !!! Even better was that it turns off when it's supposed to and back on when it is supposed to.
Wireless Works - I tested by connecting to multiple different networks for stability (just go to a couple of different MacDonald's, Starbuck's and Safeway stores to try this if you cannot find available networks in your neighbourhood) You don't have to connect to them, just get to the point where it checks for the passcode/network key and you've successfully communicated with the router and this will count as connecting to a wireless device.
i have TURNED OFF ALL WINDOWS UPDATES, this is important because it is an update to the operating system (Windows Vista) that is causing the problems in the first place. (Not a conspiracy between HP/Compaq and Microsoft to cause you to pay for expensive parts that don't fix the problem or go out and pay for a full copy of Windows Vista and have it installed professionally)
I used to work for the retailer that sold me this laptop for my step daughter (and HP authourized repair centre) and now i work for a Network and Systems Support HelpDesk so i can safely say that you don't need to fall for the warning from Microsoft about needing to keep your operating system constantly updated because if you connect to a Wireless network in the fireplace you are behind a firewall and thus protected by the nasty little things floating around out there. If you are worried about the security concerns about your browser (internet explorer) the download Firefox - it is built on a much safer code and is regularily updated as well and won't leave you open to installing the nasty microsoft code that breaks your laptop

My bluetooth button stops working, how will i override it? coz i have my wireless assistant yet i can't enable it using that coz the bluetooth button is not on. My laptop is hp compaq 6715b


You could re-install the bluetooth driver..
Contact HP for the driver..
Or in the HP wireless Assitant.
You need to click on properties then you need to check all the options available and click on apply..
Then you will see the buttons to turn on/offf the bluetooth and the wireless in HP wireless Assistant main menu..

I would first try to get into HP wireless assitant which you can do through Control Panel (Start >> Control Panel or Start >> Settings >> Control Panel). In there you can turn your wireless on and off. Be sure to make sure the wireless switch at the front is turned on also. If the light near the wireless switch still remains orange, then you will need to get the motherboard repaired or replaced as this is a known issue. If you still have warranty, HP will repair this free of charge. Otherwise contact a repair company such as www.revivemylaptop.com

EVERYTIME I TRY TO TURN MY WIRELESS ASSISTANT ON, MY COMPUTER FREEZES. EVERYTIME I TRY TO LOAD MY INTERNET EXPLORER, MY YAHOO PAGE WON'T LOAD WHAT CAN I DO?


Make sure Wireless Zero Config is running.
Try to uninstall the wireless assitant software that came with the laptop (NOT THE WIRELESS CARD DRIVERS!!) and use the built in windows wireless assistant. (Usuelly does the job untill you deside someday to format your computer.)
