    Being that this "Pavilion g6" is a laptop, is it in the "Airplane Mode"?
    Is there a WiFi switch and is it in the on position?

    To resolve the issue open command prompt as administrator and type following commands one by one:
    note: to open command prompt in windows 7 click on start and search for cmd right click and run as administrator.



    Type netsh winsock reset and press Enter.
    Type netsh int ip reset and press Enter.
    Type ipconfig /release and press Enter.
    Type ipconfig /renew and press Enter.
    Type ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter.
    Type ipconfig /registerdns and press Enter.
    Type route /f and press Enter. (reboot required)

    Additionally you can reset firewall to original settings:
    Type netsh advfirewall reset and press Enter.

    2. in left pane click on -> change adapter settings.

    7. in alternate dns server type 8.8.4.4
    8. click on advanced -> WINS, and uncheck enable LMHOSTS lookup
    9. and check disable NETBIOS over TCP/IP

    Does the wireless adapter show as "OK" in Device Manager?

    Can you detect your wireless network? If so, exactly what happens when you try to connect? Any error message?
