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?

My broadcom network adapter is not working. It


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.

My broadcom wireless lan adapter for windows vista not detected in device manager and hp wireless assaistant not working.


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

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

I don't know what you did and didn't do so don't become angry if this is something you have already tried. 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

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.
