    I have the same problem, but pressing the WLAN button does not turn the WiFi on. It seems to be permanently off. Is there any way to get around pressing this button?

I've been having the same problem here at work (Microsoft) with 15 machines in my lab and I just figured it out after wasting two frustrating hours trying out different drivers. If you press F10 to boot it into the BIOS at start-up and then arrow over to the Advanced tab, there is a place where you can enable the WLAN (F5/F6). Hit F10 to save and the WiFi key should light up as Windows is loading. If it doesn't, try pressing it and it should.

YESSSSSSS!

Is your WLAN turned on? It's usually a switch or button somewhere on the machine with the WiFi icon around it. Kind of like this:

No Wi-Fi no light on button


If the button or on/off switch that is provided for the WiFi (may have a line with three curved lines coming off of it as a symbol for the button) is toggled or enabled and the wifi won't turn on, then there is a good chance that the driver for the wifi isn't loaded.

You can tell if the driver is missing by opening the Control Panel, opening System, opening Device Manager and looking for a Network Adapter category. Expand the Network Adapter category by clicking the plus sign and look for a WiFi adapter in there. If it has a yellow exclamation point ! on it then there is a problem with the network card and it needs to be reinstalled. If there isn't a WiFi or Wireless Network adapter in there, chances are it is found under a category called "Other Devices" and it still needs to be reinstalled.

To install it, you will probably have to delete the device out of the device manager (highlight it and press the delete key on the keyboard) and then plug your laptop into wired network connection (usually your router or internet service modem will have a network port that you can plug into directly with an ethernet cable). You'll go to the manufacturer's website, click on support and search for drivers for your laptop. Be sure to go to the network section and download and install the network driver for your system.

HP Pavilion dv9205us wifi issues


Is your version of Windows 7 32 or 64bit? Open the Network and Sharing Center, select Change Adapter settings, is the wireless adapter listed? Is the Wireless Adapter in the Device Manager under Network Adapters? Have you done ALL your Windows and HP updates? Usually Windows 7 will apply the generic driver to the devices. Do you see any UNKNOWN DEVICES in Device Manager? You can find drivers here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3340198 Some times you can use Vista drivers by changing compatibility. Post your findings and which version, 32 or 64 bit.

Won't connect to WiFi home network, keeps coming up with ünable to connect". My other laptop connects automatically


Go to device manager, network adapters, select your wifi adapter, right click then uninstall it. If you're with Vista, do not delete the drivers. Then when its gone, select action on device manager and scan for hardware changes. It will re install the wifi adapter back. Now try to reconnect back to your router, put in your security key and once connected, save it. When you boot it up again it should connect back automatically again.

Hope this helps.

No wifi after re-load of xp system software


Did you reinstall the drivers for the device? Check the Device Manager for your system and see if Windows sees the wireless device. If you have a red X, the device is disabled; if you have either an unknown device or the wireless device with a yellow dot with a black exclamation point, then either the driver is not installed, or the driver is improperly installed.

First, try removing and reinstalling the Wireless Card Drivers from the Device Manager by following the instructions below :

Right Click on My Computer and select Properties in the list.

Now go to Hardware tab and click on the Device Manager button.

Device Manager window opens in a seperate window.

Now click on the [+] mark next to Network Adapters to expand the tree.

Now, right click on the Broadcom Wireless adapter entry and select Uninstall.

Now, restart the Notebook and download the Wireless card drives for your notebook from the link below :

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33001-33500/sp33008.exe

Save the file in the hard drive and double click once it is saved to install the Drivers.

Restart the Notebook after the installing is completed.

If the issue remains, try reinstalling the HP Wireless Assistant.

Uninstall it from the Add or remove programs in the Control Panel.

Download and save the HP Wireless Assistant application which is available from the link below :

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp30501-31000/sp30637.exe

Install it by double clicking it and restart once the installation is completed.

This should resolve the issue.

Bluetooth connection problem


The computer have 3 buttons. One is the DVD, the second is de Media Player, and the third is the wireless devices switch. If this button is not lighted, all wireless connections are off (both WIFI and Bluetooth).

Wireless connection no longer works after vista upgrade


HP uses "branded" wireless modules,which means it's got to be HP or it doesn't get to play.
Does device manager see the wireless device? I've had similar situations with the 8000s. Always the driver or the wireless utility was the problem. Try letting windows manage the device, or if you already are, disable that and use the devices utiliy to manage it.
BTW, most systems consider BT as wireless.
Good luck, hope that helps
