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.

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.

    Almost 5 years later I still have not seen a solution other than replacing or somehow hot wiring the off/on switch. Not even sure if that works. When you install the Broadmore wireless card it will not be recognized as new hardware. Seems to me that it should be recognized even if you do not have a driver. Right? Has anyone ever solved this HP problem?

No souds


is the mute button above the keyboard pressed? Are you running windows 7? Does the soundcard show up in your device manager? Also, on windows 7, the volume mixer provides separate channels for applications, rather than devices as in xp. Click the volume icon, open mixer, and check to see if the internet and other applications are muted. I use a DV6000 and this caused me trouble since this computer had a bad GPU that I fixed, which causes the ssound to stop working when it goes bad. The computer ended up being fine, I had simply forgot about the mixer.
If that doesn't work, try re-installing the sound drivers. If that doesn't work, you might have a faulty BGA (nvidia) chip, which will have to be reflown.

Hello i have lost my wireless connection settings they have just disappeared i have a hp pavillion dv6000 with xp can anybody help me?!


Your solution is in the control panel. Go to the control panel and then the device manager, make sure your device is present and also enabled. If it is next step would be to go to network connection and make sure it enabled as well. Let me know if this works.

Wireless network card


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.

Good luck

Wireless Broadcom 802.11 problems


Hello hskaggs,
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.
