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.

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.

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.

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.

Broadcom getting uninstalled automatically


Hi There,
I don't know if this is the same problem you are having but one of the staff from my office was bumping the switch on the side of his laptop and turning off wireless support. When you look in the device manager you don't see anything because it is turned off. He would bump it again in a few days and it would magically come back. Not all laptops have a switch like this. Some have a function key combination you press to turn wireless on and off but you can't still trigger that by accident but not as easily as a button on the side of the case.

Hope this helps.
