My network wireless adapter keeps dropping off

I have a hp pavilion tx1000 tablet notebook. I have been having a problem for some time since I upgraded to Vista Ultimate where my wireless adapter, broadcom 802.11a/b/g W/Lan, keeps dropping out of the network adapter list. The real problem is that it is not consistently happening but every time I boot up I don't know whether I am going to have wireless internet access or not. At the moment I am using a mobile broadband solution to connect to the net and that is too slow and limited in download/upload per month to 2 gb.

Please help, rgs Vince

    I have the same problem. Haven't found a solution yet. Rather than reboot, I put the unit to sleep and then wake it up, refresh the wireless connections list and it seems to come back...

Installed windows 7 on my hp tx1000 tablet pc and now no wireless card

wireless card issue is a typical promblem with the Tx1000, first thing is that you changed the operating system and window 7 is unable to pick up the wireless card hardware, and a driver is needed to be installed for the wireless card, which you can find at the Hp site or the broadcom site if you have the broadcom wireless card. Other then that, if nothing works, then try to see if the laptop can locate the wireless card trough the hardware/sound device manager in the control panel. After opening the device manager and scrolling to hardwares and the wireless card is not found, then this is the typical tx1000 wifi mystery promblem. This promblem is associated with the laptop overheating and thus caused the card expansion slot to become defect. This by far is the start of a more promblematic issue that many other tx1000 owner is having. Google "mysterious wifi card on hp tx1000" and there are thousand out there with the same situation.

HP Pavilion TX1000 wireless network adapter dissappeared and i can not see any network to connect to.

Just a thought:

There may be a switch or button that turns the wireless network off.

Check your manual or you may see the keyboard icon with radio waves going up, press this key. Check connection now.

Pavilion TX1000 - WiFi card suddenly not detected

The solution is, get a USB wifi adapter, because that card is done. HP REFUSES to recognize this problem, and since the majority of failures happen after the warranty expires (mine did) HP just says you are SOL. You can get decent wireless adapters for $20, and your wireless problems will be solved. Unfortunately, expect your laptops motherboard/chipset/dc port to fail within a year :(

Help with my hp tx1000 please

Mine has already twice made the same thing. Solution was simple - got the touchscreen changed (luckily under warranty). As third problem required change of the motherboard, I'm planning to get rid of the piece of junk alltogether. I think it is a solution for all the troubles with tx1000.
