Don't remember if this particular model had a button on the front or side (left I thought). If not, take a look at your "F" function keys and see if there is a muted blue character that looks like a triangle with a line through it and a circle looking thing atop it. If memory serves, I think it'll be F2. Hold down the "Fnk" key and then the "F2". Give it a couple of seconds (about 15 actually) and hopefully your wireless is back up and running.

If NOT, give me a holler, there is a slightly longer tutorial I have that will walk you through "Starting a Service" that might have to be done in order to get you back up and running.

Hope this helps...

Hp dv6 no wireless capability - light will not go to blue from organe on f12 key press it says wifi off again wifi disabled

When you pulled the Wireless Module, then reinstalled it; you made Windows find the Drivers, again.

[When a new device is installed, Windows 'breaks it's neck' to find suitable matching drivers.
You reinstalled the Wireless Module, and made Windows think it was a new device ]

The wire terminals can 'corrode'. (It's gold plating, and gold isn't supposed to corrode. Just a term I used to explain)

The terminals on the Wireless Module can also 'corrode'.
Try using a pencil eraser on those two contact 'pins'.

The connections of the wires to Wireless Module, MUST be tight.
Can swivel if you move the wire, but not seem loose.

(That is with ALL power removed to laptop. AC adapter {Charger}, and Battery )

Still persists? Suggest new Wireless Modem Card.

Hp pavilion dv6 how do i turn on the wireless capability

he light at the top of the keyboard is the button. It does not look like a button. Press it and wait as much as two seconds for the color to change. You will then need to re-establish a connection to the wireless router. Click on the wireless icon next to or near the clock in the task tray of your screen. Choose a connection from the list that appears. Thanks for using Have a great day.

My wireless capability is turned off and my laptop doesn't have a button on the front of it, so where can i turn it on?

Check the function keys to see if one of them has an icon for Wifi, and check to see if there is a switch on the front or side that would turn the Wifi on.

Good luck on this.

Not being able to connect on my wireless computer I ran Diagnostics and it said the wireless is off.I have no idea how to turn it back on.It is a HP Pavillion dv6-1030us PC notebook

I suppose it could be something as simple as the switch was turned off by accident. On my laptop, there is a small slide switch below the front edge. It is easy to move it, you may have done so moving the laptop or whatever. Look for it, there should be a small yellowish light come on when the wireless is on.

Wireless mouse is not working. computer says the wireless button is turned off. can't find it to turn it back on. hp dv6 1030us

Check your bios settings when the computer first turns on it well say press F2 to enter setup (could be a different F key) if it doesn't say that, try pressing F2, F1, F10, and F12 or the DEL key. if these don't work, Try again and press all the Fkeys across the keyboard. on will take yo into setup and you should find a wireless device setting to turn it on. If you can't find one, you may not have a wireless adapter installed in your system.

No wireless capability

If your model does not have wireless capability, even if you had a switch on the machine, if there is no internal wireless card you can't make this wireless. My suggestion would be to purchase a PCMCIA or USB wireless card that you can load to your system to make this wireless capable.
