RESTORE YOUR COMPUTER! This just happened to me and i looked up and tried EVERYTHING! Since my wifi button had only stopped working 2 days ago, I restored my computer to 4 days prior because I was told that sometimes without you even knowing you allow stuff to get on your computer whenever you get online which could cause your computer to turn functions off automatically. My wifi button actually stopped working after I went into a mcdonalds with my computer an used their wifi so I think me allowing their wifi onto my computer did something to it because when I took it home the button was just red altogether and it was SOOO frustrating. But as soom as I restored it, my computer came back on and a little window popped up saying "Your wifi is currently off, toggle your wifi key to turn it on/off". I was so happy! The simpliest thing that no one would ever think of.

Re: Remote internet access
I found on HP website that information: If your wireless network adapter is built-in to your notebook
Verify that the adapter is turned on. Some notebooks have an on/off
button on the front or side that corresponds to a blue or red light.
Press the button to turn the wireless adapter on.

Go to control panel and click on device manager, scroll down to network adapters and find your wireless adapter. Once found right click on your wireless adapter and see if there is an error found usually you will see an attention mark yellow if there is an issue with the network whether its a driver or not. If it is a driver right click on the network adapter and click update driver. If the computer has the best network driver for the hardware, right click on the wireless adaper once again and uninstall, restart your computer. Once restarted your computer should recognize your wireless adapter and you should be able to access the internet. If unable to access the internet check the connections to your router and modem, if that doesnt work your will have to refer to your manufactor due to a bad network adapter/
if the wireless button is not indicating in blue light and still you get the internet . then the problem is with button. still your getting internet i dont thnk its a serious problem, the LED inside the button has got fused. or Just restart your computer sometimes the button will again show blue light get worked . dont open the laptop inner parts just go to near service centre
I have looked at and reviewed your problem with your HP laptop DV6700Z and have the fallowing for you to aces.
First, if you are trying to access the internet via wireless, wait until you have established and wired connection.
If the blue light comes on in the front panel, the wireless is working, if not, you have a problem with the wireless modem.
Run a wire from your laptop to your modem and enter your my network, choose setup a internet connection.
Try to make a internet connection. Once you have established a connection, you can setup your wireless connection.
Hope this has helped you.
Step 1 Turn off all security at the wireless access point to test if it will connect. If it will, then the turn the security back on making sure you choose a security type that matches eg WEP or WPA at both the wireless access point and the laptop. Increase the security to the highest level that both devices can use. IF the wireless does not connect with security off, then test the laptop at another access point (friend's house?) to see if it the laptop. Or test the access point with someone else's known good laptop. From that point you will have isolated which component needs attention.
without looking at laptops myself, if it's not a problem where somehow a connection got loose or built up dust and debris, then it could be a hardware issue where the pavilion wifi isn't as good as the vaio's. The same thing happens to me on my hp pavilion dv2000.
I have an HP Pavillion dv9000, but they are similar.
Now if you are moving the Wireless switch on and off and the light stays red on both sides you probably have a dud of a wireless card. I had the same issue with mine at one point, what I did was get a hold of tech support, they mailed me a box with a prepaid shipping label to send them my laptop. They put in a new wireless card and shipped it back for free(of course it was still under warranty).
If you recently purchased this laptop you can usually log onto www.HP.com, go to the support section and do the chat with an HP tech or call 800-HP invent or 800-474-6836 24/7 and they will walk you thru the whole process.
But again just from your description, you have a dead air card. Call or online hp and have them fix it for you, especially if its still under warranty. If its not under warranty, then hit me back and i can give you a step by step on how to open up the laptop yourself and replace the card
First of all, check whether your Notebook is having Bluetooth devices or not since the Remote Controller you are using works based in Infrared like the Remote Controll like the remote controller in Televisions.
To check whether your Notebook is having a Bluetooth hardware or not, go to Device Manager by following the steps below :
Right Click on My Computer and select Properties in the list.
Now go to Hardware tab and click on the Device Manager button.
Device Manager window opens in a seperate window.
Check if there are any entries with Bluetooth in the the Device Manager.
If you find any entries with such name, click on the [+] mark next to it to expand the tree.
If you find any entries called Bluetooth emulator, it is just the software you had installed and not the Bluetooth Hardware which you can use to transfer data.
If the Bluetooth hardware is installed in your Notebook, there should be HP Integrated module with Bluetooth.
However, to use Bluetooth, the Wireless button should be turned on.
Just follow this steps and make sure that your Notebook is installed with a Bluetooth Hardware and get back to us if the Notebook is having Bluetooth hardware and unable to use it.
