Wireless not working

Hi, I have an HP Laptop dv 9008nr My wireless only works occasionally (mostly not). My switch is in the correct position. Seldom is there not an X over the internet icon. Seems the only way to access internet is with cable connected. Any ideas?

Regards, Kim

Your wireless card may be going bad. its not on the motherboard, its connected to it though. or it could be your router, try a router at a friends house and see if that works. if it doesnt it costs about $50 for a new card which you can out in yourself by opening the cover on the bottom

You may have a poor or failing wireless card in your laptop and more than likely it is part of your motherboard and would be very costly to replace. Assuming your wireless router is good, get a wifi card for your laptop. Quick way to check your router is to have a friend bring over their laptop and check it when it is acting up.

I have the hp pavilion 9820 dv pc notebook. I can't activate the wireless. Can you let me know how to do this. Thx


Hi.

There is a little switch on the front where all the little lights (LED) are when your cover is open.

It should slide right side and lights up a little LED confirming your wireless card is turned on.

Hope this helps!

My hp pavilion dv 9000 can not connect to bt home hub 2.0


hi, please make sure that you enable WPA encryption on the wireless router. Vista will give you trouble if you use WEP encryption. Also, please update the firmware on the wireless router, if possible.

Let me know how it goes.

HP DV6000 no wireless internet


Hard to say when I dont know the exact model.

If it is an Atlantis(DV6000-6499) it is most likely the mainboard, and it might be coverd by an extended warranty.

If it is an Ares(DV6500-6999) you should try updatigng th BIOS first. If that doesnt help i would go for another WLAN card. It might also be a defective mainboard, but that doesnt happen as often on Ares models as Atlantis.

HP Pavilion dv6000 Wireless internet function intermittent. With the on/off slide switch left in on position light will be amber (off) most of the time. Occasionally when comming out of standby the led...


You keep mentioning ( come out of standby ), You do know don't you that some systems are having problems with coming out of standby. A bios ( firmware ) update to the motherboard may fix this, but again it may not. If HP is saying that the system is working ' correctly ', then it probably is for the bios that is available for the system at this time. I would suggest not using the STANDBY mode but instead when you get done with the computer, shut it down, and restart it when you are ready to use it. I would like for you to try that possibly several times before deciding that it doesn't work for you. If you find that a complete restart of the computer doesn't alliviate your problem, please come back and let us know. I am assuming that you are in an area that has good wireless reception of course. Assumptions can be bad for a tech's health if you know what I mean.
