The first that we need to check here if the wireless adapter is working properly under device manager, because with this particular DV series laptop of HP that have some issues with it with wireless adapter and the usually ask people to take the laptop to a service center for free repair.
So lets check device manager if you will see there the wireless adapter if its not there better contact HP support or take the laptop to a service center for free repair for that wireless adapter.
To open device manager if you're using XP right click Mycomputer > Properties > Hardware tab > Device manager and there look for network adapter and then check under it if you will find there anything that says wireless if its there right click on it and select uninstall then once done restart the computer and that should correct it. But if its not there contact Hp or take laptop to service center.
If you're using Vista or Windows 7 you can access device manager from control panel and do the same thing uninstall the wireless if its there and restart the computer and again if its not showing there call HP support or take laptop to service center for repair.

    If that's is the only device showing under network adapter sorry to say but that is not the wireless so don't remove that one, next step is to contact HP support or take it to a service center for repair of the wireless adapter.

This is very common for the HP dv9000 series laptops. The problem is the controller chip. You can either do a reflow or replace the motherboard.
check out the DIY guide from www.net2005.com if you wan't to try fixing it yourself. Or get your self an USB wireless card and problem solved.

Check and see if you have turned off the radio for your wireless antenna- generally it is a key combination or a button on the side of the laptop.

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

HP DV9000 Wireless Card Not Working


Did the wireless icon from your machine light up? If no, you need to re-install your wi-fi driver. If you have the cds with you, re-install the driver then switched on your wi-fi. If you dnt have the cds, try checking on the HP site and look for the wi-fi driver.

Blinking orange light


if you got an orange light to the router, It means that there's no Internet connection or not working from the router. I might advice you to check the Internet connection from your ISP, then check the configuration of your router or you might needing to reconfigure the router.

Hp pavilion dv9000 wirless red light is on and no wireless icon


In the front on the bottom left hand side you will see a switch for the wifi make sure that is pushed over all the way.
Sometimes it moves partically and it gives you the sense it's on but it's not.
