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 you need to check that the wireless button on the notebook is on or not.
Then you have to click on start - go to connect to - choose show all connections - there you will find the networks list - choose your network from the list and click connect at the bottom...if the network is secured it may ask you for pass key also.
If you have problems in connecting . check the wireless services is on or not .. to check that need to type services.msc in run box .. and in the services page check for wireless zero configuration double click it and the services should be started and automatic.
If there is not connection at all you can also check for drivers in device manager.. .under network adaptor- - check for drivers it could be broadcom wireless or intel pro wireless . uninstall them and reinstall it form recovery manager of your notebook ... To access recovery manager you have to click all programs - then recovery manager - click advanced option in it - then driver download - these are the steps you have to follow ..
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hi there If its Vista you have, right click "computer" select "manage" and then "device manager", then
click on the + sign next to "network adapters" and right click on the
wireless network and "un-install" the device, reboot the laptop and
wait for windows to detect the wireless card and install the drivers
for it, this will appear in the system tray (bottom right hand side)
when its done try to connect again
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.
