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.

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.

Wifi needs utility to scan the hotspots before you can connect to any one of them. Utility maybe in control panel as wireless(not IR). Then you can see the wifi icon in system tray next to the time and date.

I had to reinstall my vista os on my dell inspirion 1525 and now the wifi connection will no go on. I h ave tried turning on and off the toggle switch, the BIOS is set to enabled for wifi, I have tried...


There is a strong chance that the wireless card inside is bad. I work at a computer repair shop and work mainly with laptops. It isn't uncommon for wireless cards to go bad, before their "time". Usually Dell's have access panels on the bottom of the laptop where you can see the wireless card. It will have 2, sometimes 3 small wires plugged into it. Usually dell' use Dell brand cards, which are really repackaged Broadcom wireless cards in most cases. In your situation, write down what the model number is, go to another computer, look up that model on ebay, buy one, replace it.

My gateway laptop cant connect to the internet. _When I plug a cable, the red light in the port does not respond _ The WIFI does not respond


Hello John,
It seems that: 1. Your LAN controller and the WiFi controller could be disabled in your BIOS setup.To re-enable them, if applicable,
  • Press the F1(or F2 ) key repeatedly after restarting the computer to enter the BIOS setup.
  • Navigate through your BIOS and locate the settings for LAN conroller and wireless, and select Enabled to enable them.
2. You may not have the appropriate drivers installed on your laptop for your network controllers. Upon further investigation, your laptop runs on the following network hardware:
  • ActionTec IEEE 802.11b network card installed in Mini PCI expansion slot
  • Broadcom BCM94306 IEEE802.11g network card installed in Mini PCI expansion slot
  • Broadcom BCM94300 IEEE802.11a/g network card installed in Mini PCI expansion slot
Download and install your drivers for the hardware above from: Wireless Drivers(Broadcom BCM94306) from http://www.soft32.com/download_175098.html Broadcom BCM94306 10/100Mbps LAN drivers from http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/downloaddrivers.php
Hope this solution helps.Good day.

Installed windows 7 on my hp tx1000 tablet pc and now no wireless card


wireless card issue is a typical promblem with the Tx1000, first thing is that you changed the operating system and window 7 is unable to pick up the wireless card hardware, and a driver is needed to be installed for the wireless card, which you can find at the Hp site or the broadcom site if you have the broadcom wireless card. Other then that, if nothing works, then try to see if the laptop can locate the wireless card trough the hardware/sound device manager in the control panel. After opening the device manager and scrolling to hardwares and the wireless card is not found, then this is the typical tx1000 wifi mystery promblem. This promblem is associated with the laptop overheating and thus caused the card expansion slot to become defect. This by far is the start of a more promblematic issue that many other tx1000 owner is having. Google "mysterious wifi card on hp tx1000" and there are thousand out there with the same situation.

Need Network Controller 4 both Compaq Presario 2100 2500 Laptops


You have to install the WiFi card with an Installer before it is recognized by device manager... go to the link below, and download the WiFi driver and install as Administrator. You will need to know your exact model number to do so.. Do NOT just get a WiFi driver that will NOT work, you must get installer version.

The wireless adapter of your laptop is Broadcom. Check if you can find a folder by that name. If so setting it up depends on the kind of driver back up you made. If your back up is of :-
  1. Installation package: Look for setup / install in the Broadcom folder and install it.
  2. Sys and inf Files: Right click on My Computer click Manage and on the left tree pane click on Device Manager. Look for a question marked network device or controller, right click on it and click on Update Driver. On the welcome to the hardware update wizard click on No not at this time and click Next. Select install from a list of specific locations and click Next. Check "Include this locations in the search" if u found the Broadcom folder in your back up CD browse for it here. Otherwise Check "Search removable media..." . Insert your driver back up Media and click Next. If ur driver is located install it.
  3. Goto this page of the manufacturer's site, download the driver that suits your operating system and install it

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
