You will need to download the drivers for the network controller or wireless at HP's support site, or get the make and model from the wireless card and go to driverguide.com

WHY DOESN`T MY HP,LAPTOP.CONNECT TO WIRELES TRANSMITER.


Make sure you didn't disturb the wireless card inside the laptop. Check the connections for the wireless card antennas (usually a gray wire and black wire). Also some laptops have a little on and off switch, to turn on and off the wireless. Please make yours is on. I've had a few clients with the same problem and turned out the switch was accidentally turned off. Good luck

HP 530 wireless will not pick up any wireless networks. Please help


Hi.

First ensure that the wireless adapter is turned on.

If the adapter is on and does not detect any network, reinstall wireless network adapter drivers. the drivers can be obtained using the link below.

Download drivers and software

Reinstalling driver software usually fixes the problem, if it does not it usually means that the internal adapter is defective, in that case you will need to use an external wireless adapter (USB).

I had this problem too. You need the HP Wireless Assistant. Download it here- ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp36501-37000/sp36770.exe

Once installed, open the HP Wireless Assistant and click Properties button. Check the box next to "Independent controls for installed wireless devices." Then click "Turn All On" button. On next boot it will be enabled!

The wireless driver install package will be available in C:\SWSETUP
But if your notebook came without a preinstalled OS, you'll have to visit HP site to get the drivers for your notebook PC.
Alternatively, try the HP Wireless Assistant to check if it is turned on.

Wireless not working


Did you disable the wireless card through the BIOS? Sometimes the wireless card can be accidentally turned off through one of the HP Wireless Assistant which will keep it from turning Blue when you press it

Wireless Button Disabled


After one month of trying everything, I finally figured this one out.  First turn off and restart your computer.  Then press F10 to enter the System BIOS Settings.  Select F9 (Setup Defaults) and when it asks Load Default Configuration Now? , Enter YES.  Then, press F10 (Save and Exit) and when it asks Save Configuration Changes And Exit Now, Enter YES.  This should restore the wireless LAN button to its original factory settings.  Once you restart the computer the button will be listed as disabled, but press on the button and it should work again.  I hope this helps someone else out!
