HP bought several motherboards from the same company in China. These boards work for about 15 months then they can't find the wireless card. This is caused by a defect in the North Bridge chip overheating over time. This chip is not replaceable at the local level. You can send it back to HP for a replacement and sometimes they will charge you $300 - $500, or you can just replace the motherboard yourself. Check with them first since there is an ungoing lawsuit regarding these boards. Either way the only fix is to replace the motherboard. This is also a problem for the dv6000 and the dv9000 models. HP knows that 30% of these will fail.

For wireless printer like these you need to make sure that it is connected and configured already to your existing wireless network. If not yet better connect the printer to your computer via USB and then run the setup disc and follow the setup wizard to setup the wireless.
I Would guess, that windows is leaving the handeling of the wireless connection to the NETGEAR software, and therefor not registering the device ad connected.
To make Windows regain controle take a look at this:
Use the network setup wizard to connect to your network, and the internet. Unless you did this already.
You can get the wizard from Control Panel, Network ... , Connect to a Network. If wired you won't need key, it's for wireless only.
Yo did not say what OS, so info is a little generic.
Hope this helps.
The Wireless Network Setup Wizard and the View Available Wireless Networks feature both rely on the Wireless Zero Configuration service to provide their functionality to Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) and Microsoft Windows XP Table PC Edition 2005. If the Wireless Zero Configuration service is not available, you receive an error message that directs you to this article.
This behavior occurs for several reasons. Some computer and hardware manufacturers provide their own configuration software that replaces the Wireless Zero Configuration service that is provided in Windows. In that case, you must use the software that is provided by the manufacturer to configure your wireless network. If you want to use the Wireless Network Setup Wizard or the View Available Wireless Networks feature to configure your wireless device, see the documentation that came with your computer or with your wireless network card. Use this documentation to determine whether you can use the Wireless Zero Configuration service to configure your wireless network. Sometimes, you cannot use the Windows functionality.
If your computer or your wireless network adapter did not come with its own wireless network software, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type ncpa.cpl, and then click OK.
Click Network Connections.
In Network Connections, click to select your wireless connection, and then clickChange settings of this connection.
On the Wireless Networks tab, click to select the Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings check box.
To start the Wireless Zero Configuration service, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type %SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s, and then click OK.
Double-click Wireless Zero Configuration.
In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.
In the Service status area, click Start, and then click OK.
If you receive an error message when you try to start the service, see the "References" section for more troubleshooting information.For more information, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

You will find icons like local area connection, wireless connection and lot more. Just have one local area connection enabled and disable all other icons. Then run the setup
IT seems that the wireless connection might not be connected. if you facing trouble connecting to the wireless network using the wireless adapter utility then you can switch over to windows utility . Sounds difficult ! It is very simple Click Here for more info about wireless connection problem
don't need it...Just connect to it. Linksys is bad about this too...telling you that you have to run cd before connecting to network. Just connect to it. There will be no problems..they just want their third party software on your comp. The only cd you would need would be for the network card on one of the computers that's going to be on the network. not the routers cd.
just run netowrk setup wizard or activate your wireless card and click connect to wireless network. be sure to access the routers admin page via http://*gateway* ie- http://192.168.0.1 and setup your security or people like me will use your internet without permission.
your wireless devices are not configure to the right value. Start the wireless network wizard in your desktop computer.(Start- Control Panel - Network and Internet Connections - Setup a wireless network for a home or small office) Follow the on-screen instructions. After finishing, run the wizard in the router and then run it in the devices that you want to connect to the network.
You shouldn't have to run the setup wizard to reconnect. It sounds like you just haven't configured it to auto-connect to that wireless connection. Right click on My Network Places and select Properties. Right click on your Wireless LAN connection, and tell it to connect. You should be able to go through those settings and tell it to auto-connect to your router as well.
