Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Anyone ever hear of the problem with HP DV6000 ( may be because of the bios critical update)
My wireless connects intermittently depending on the device manger finding the hardware in the network adapters part of device manager.
Someone told me the bios problem is what causes the hardware not to show up
There is a patch on HP's site...but they have been no help...and who the heck has time to send it in for service.
The wlan light is on red, so i know that it works.....just not detected
I cannot find the hardware to uninstall and then reinstall
Anyone else out there with the same problem? or a solution?

Here's a quick fix for a HP DV6000 that can't connect to the
internet, no network adapter detected in device manager problem:
not long ago, i also experienced this problem
my "HP Pavilion DV6308NR" with Vista OS is not connecting to the
and the network adapter is not found under device manager.
Even the HP Wireless Assistant is not working.
I turned it on but my laptop still says it's disabled.
after a month of turn off, wait for 5 minutes and plug again routine.
I decided to look into the system configuration and here's what I
1. Restart PC
2. Enter "Setup" by pressing <F10> as soon as you see the HP logo
on you screen
3. Go to "System Configuration" by pressing the left button twice
4. Go to "Boot options" by pressing down button 4 times
5. Press Enter
6. Go to "Internal Network Adapter Boot" by pressing the the down
button 3 times, then check if its DISABLED (of which in my case
7. Then press <F5 or F6> to ENABLE it.
8. Lastly, Press <F10> to Save and Exit, then Select YES.
9. After that, PC will continue its boot process and make sure
you're Wireless Assistant is switched on.
And Viola! I can connect to the internet again!

I cannot take credit for this solution as I found it on-line through a forum similar to this one (it could have been this forum). Anyway, the solution to my problem came from HP. Before I provide the answer, I have to inform all users who think that the "red" or "orange" light is an indication as to whether or not their wireless is working - it is NOT - the light need to be blue.
After contacting HP, I discovered my PC did not see the software and it was required that I return my PC for a "free" repair. I returned my PC over the Christmas holidays and it was returned before the end of the year! HP came through for me, and to date, NO PROBLEMS!
Here's what you do, go on-line and find "HP Limited Warranty Service Enhancement" to determine if you are entitled to an update on your PC. I hope this information helps because forums like this helped me to get a "new" PC. I decided to go on line to find the site link for you:

When you say the hardware does not show up do you mean in device manager? Try reloading the device by adding new hardware and selecting the device manually thereby forcing it to see the driver.
