The new hp units have a touch switch on the top panel. It should be blue when on, otherwise it is orange/yellow. Just touch the icon to change the status from off to on, then check for networks.

The paragraph below is from the hp website on wireless unit problems:

The power to the wireless network and bluetooth devices is controlled by a switch or button on most computers. It is quite common to accidentally bump the button and turn off the wireless service. On most computers there is an LED light that glows blue when there is a wireless device is turned on and enabled.

This is the link to that site:

Can the HP Pavilion 763n PC Desktop use a wireless router?


Your computer has a "built-in" 10/100BT network connection integrated on the motherboard but to go wireless you'll have to add either a PCI (internal) or USB (external) wireless network adapter to transmit/receive the signal from your wireless router. Think "walkie-talkie" here with the wireless router installed AFTER the modem (phone line outlet needed) located in a central area of your home and transmitting/receiving to the individual wireless network adapters that must be separately installed in each computer.

Hi. Please check first if your computer was able to detect the device. You can look for this device in control panel then click system then click device manager. Your wireless adapter should be present under network adapters. f computer was able to detect the wireless adapter. Try to turn off/on the wireless switch. Usually, wireless switch is located infront of the laptop or on the side. You can also try pressing Fn + F5 key to disable/enable wireless network card.

Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click System
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Click the '+' in front of Network Adapters.
Are both the "built-in" and the "add-on" wireless adapters listed?
Are there any "yellow" or "red" marks associated?
Double-click one of the adapters, and choose "enable".
Repeat for the other adapter.

Failing the above, find a "geeky" friend who can trouble-shoot,
or take your computer to any computer-store, for trouble-shooting.
