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

The first thing you should do is a proper 'powercycle' for all of your internet equipment.

To do this:

1) Unplug the power to your modem and your router, and power off your computer.
2) Wait a full minute.
3) Plug the power back in to JUST the modem.
4) Wait some more - for the modem to fully connect to your ISP, and the lights to indicate. If you're not sure, just wait about 2-3 minutes.
5) Plug the power back into the router.
6) Wait another minute or two for the router to finish connecting.
7) Then turn the computer back on.

You can bypass the computer turning on and off if you can repair your wireless connection.

If this doesn't work, there is a pinhole sized reset button on the router itself that you will need a toothpick or somesuch to press - press and hold the button for 5 seconds, and then try the steps above again. If you do this, the network id and password will be reset to the default, just like it was when you bought it.

Hi there, Before we start, try hooking your laptop up directly to the modem - if you're not getting an internet connection there, call your Internet Service Provider. If you are, then follow the steps below.
1) Make sure that you're not using more than one router at the same time. One router should be hooked up directly to your modem in the WAN port. If you have wireless security enabled, go to step 2 2) As a test, remove the security on your wireless network and then see if you can access the internet properly. The router can be accessed by typing it its address in internet explorer, as long as you are connected to the router. Generally the address is 192.168.1.1 3) If you still can't access the internet, go to Internet Explorer Options, the Connections tab, LAN settings, and make sure "use a proxy server" is NOT checked. 4) If you DO get an internet connection now, go back to your router and enable WPA security (some older laptops have problems with WPA2 connections).
If everything doesn't work, post back with some more details! Alex

Belkin router F5D8638-4 laptop connects but no internet access


Make sure you entered the same key exactly the same way in both the router and the computer. Also, make sure you have selected a Security protocol that is supported by the computer. Some versions of Windows do not support WPA. XP supports it but really doesn't like to auto detect it. If it's a HP laptop make sure you are using a communications channel other than 6. Some routers give you an option to select the channel HP computers don't like working with channel 6.

Internet problem


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.
