This actually is a recall fix for pavilion laptops. Contact HP. You'll need to check with them to see if your particular model is in need of a BIOS upgrade.

The upgrade forces the fan to run constantly in order to cool the WiFi card which over heats and stops working.

I had this same problem and saw the recall on the internet and recieved a note from HP on the subject as well. It works fine now.

Hello

Please check whether your notebook Wireless Adapter is detected in the Device Manager.

Click start and in the start search box type Device Manager and press enter.

Then click on + sign next to network adapters and check whether Broadcom/intel Prowireless adapter listed under network adapters.

If it is listed in the Device Manager, then check whether you are able to ping to network.

Click start and in the start search box type cmd and press enter

This will open command prompt ( black window ) . There type ping and give one space and type 127.0.0.1 and press enter. Check whether you are receiving reply and no packet should lost. I mean lost packet should be 0.

If it is pinging to the network then the issue is with the Internet explorer. If it is not pinging or Wireless adapter is not listed in the Device Manger. Then I suspect that the issue is with the Wireless Adapter. However, to isolate the issue please install BIOS update and restart the notebook . To provide you BIOS update I need your notebook product number.

Thanks
Regards

Unidentfied network is connected, no internet access, i see a chair between the internet acces and the laptop. tried to reboot everything several times, turned off firewalls, nothing helps/


That unidentified network, have you connected to that before and browsed the internet? Just because you connect to a network, doesn't mean that network is setup to allow internet access. It could be a simple fact that you need to connect to a different network.

First thing I would try to do is a simple windows restore point. Just go back to the date when your computer was working find, and do a system restore from that date. Should fix your problems, unless you have a peice of hardware that is malfunctioned or a virus. Starting the unit in safemode with network access might give you limited use of the computer to troubleshoot farther. Can you describe the error that occurred?

Is the DNS server internal or on the Internet? Try setting DNS manually to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 which are free Google DNS servers and try again.

MY Acer netbook model KAV60 no longer responds to wifi


Look below your arrow keys, near the bottom edge of the computer. There's a wireless indicator there, and on the edge itself there is a switch. You might have turned it off accidentally.
Hope to have helped :)

I keep losing the internet signal and going offline. LAN indicates pending??? How do I perform a system reset with Linux??


Power cycle the system by shutting it down and switching it on after at least thirty seconds. Check network settings to verify the IP address and other related information. Determine if the network card is working adequately. Identify the malfunctioning adapter by disabling the cards one by one. Move one of the portable hosts--such as a laptop--closer to the router. If it works better, interference or low signal strength is the reason for poor Internet access. Inadequate signal performance can be caused by several factors including cordless devices working within the frequency range (2.4 GHz) of a wireless network, shiny surfaces and too much distance between hosts and access points. Resolve this issue by using a wireless repeater?a device that amplifies wireless signal so it reaches distant areas within the premises. Minimize signal interference by maintaining a distance of at least one meter between cordless devices and the router. Alternatively, buy gadgets that function at frequencies other than 2.4 GHz. Try changing the WiFi channel for better results. Check the functioning of wireless router and access points. Adjust the router antenna to get an optimum signal. Most wireless routers come with omni-directional antennae to send signals in all directions, a situation appropriate for a square-shaped network. If hosts are arranged in a linear fashion, use an antenna that sends signals only in one direction. Some portable routers have internal antenna, giving more freedom to users who are on the go. Use an external antenna with such routers. The market now offers antennae with varying strengths, implying some are more powerful than others. See if using a more powerful antenna fixes the problem. Aside from increasing the range of transmitted signals, the reception capacity of hosts can also be enhanced. External WiFi-enabled antennae attached to laptops are now available for this purpose. Change the location of the router and access point. They should ideally be placed centrally between all computers. As the signal bounces off smooth and shiny surfaces, routers and access points should be placed away from windows, doors, mirrors and other metallic surfaces. Examine signal performance by using the monitoring utility that typically comes with the access point. Check that the devices show correct lights. Device lights are an indicator of accurate connections. Different lighting patterns indicate different things. For example, some network cards show green light on successfully establishing a connection. Similarly, the router's wireless LAN (WLAN) light is turned on at all times, even if no device is connected to it. Further, this light blinks when a host communicates with another host. Unexpected lighting indicates a problem. Go through user manuals to get familiar with this feature and make sure the devices show desired lighting behavior. Use wireless Internet utilities to check the SSIDs and channels neighboring wireless networks are using. Change your network's SSID and/or channel if they are the same as that of other networks in the vicinity. See if correct drivers have been installed. Check configuration settings for encryption keys.

Rerun the network setup wizard on your computer. Make sure all computers, printers, and routers you want to use in the network are turned on and that an internet connection is present. Once you do this your problem should be fixed. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
