Recently lost my broadcom connection. I cant find it on device manager. Have tried application recovery but still does not work. Have any advice? Thanks. Elizabeth
My Broadcom wlan wireless does not work any longer and I must plug into an lan line to receive the internet. I have seen an IT and he doesn"t know what the problem is. Have tried recovery and it workd until windows updates or I turn it off
My Hp no longer recognizes the wireless NIC. I have reloaded drivers, flashed the BIOS, removed and reinserted the NIC and even contacted Hp, etc. and nothing has worked. There a many, many posts ont he internet about this same problem with several different models of Hp laptops and no solution has worked. My next attempt will be to reload the OS from scratch. I may also purchase a replacement NIC I found on the internet for $20. This laptop also had the motherboard replaced after onlt four months. I will not buy Hp again.

Re: broadcom hp dv6000
First do right click on you my computer icon and choose properties ->hardware->device manager->network adapters and expand it, see your broadcom wireless is there or not, if not obtain a diver file for your model from HP support site and run it so that your wireless adapter will start working and enable the wireless on and see its working.

First go online go to HP site and go driver download and puch in the the Product no of your PC it will bring up the entire list of drivers for your PC. Now you need to do a BIOS update than restart the PC. it should work fine and the pop up should not come anymore.
Some HP notebooks will disable the wireless card when you connect an ethernet cable. Or it could have power saving turned on for that device. Check device properties and disable powersaving mode for any network devices. If it has been functioning fine and this is a recent development, your network card could be failing but there isn't enough data at this point to make that conclusion.
You can run HP update to download and install drivers on your PC/Laptop, or run Microsoft update too.
Your HP PC came with a tool called Recovery Manager, Click the vista start menu and in the search bar type (Recovery Manager) without the parenthesis and it should display programs like RECOVERY DISC CREATION and RECOVERY MANAGER , please select the RECOVERY MANAGER an if you have VISTA USER ACCOUNT CONTROL turned on you will have to allow the program to run. OK, once program launch, select the advance Options and click on HARDWARE DRIVER RE-INSTALLATION and click next. follow the screen instructions to re-install the driver or drivers. Make sure you are not running any other program when using recovery manager. GOOD LUCK
Hi there. The wireless switch on the front bottom of the laptop, it's suppose to be blue when the button is on the right. Right click on computer and select manage, go to device manager, and go to Network Adapters, try to see a network adapter
called Broadcom, if it doesn't appear, it means that your computer
doesn't recognize the wireless card and you may have to reinstall the drivers. Please let me know how you get on.

Uninstall the drivers for the network and reinstall the previous version which is the link above. Are you getting any errors other than the amber light ? When you are at work can you connect via hard wire (RJ45 connector) If you can, call the ISP at work and have them take a look at your machine's settings. Of course you'll need the administrator's blessings. Really they can take over your machine and check it out in minutes. Hope this helps...WB
At this point you have tried the various troubleshooting procedures and have determined that the wireless card is faulty. To save yourself alot of time and effort, I would advise you to buy an external wireless adapter and disable the faulty internal one. Yes, it is a pain but going through this routine just to connect is not ideal.
