    I have a HP Pavillon dv6000 laptop, tried connecting to my wireless network this morning but no luck. It will connect fine when using Ethernet cable. Whether the switch is pushed to on or off the light stays orange, when it is connected it used to turn blue. I've included a prtscrn of my device manager...

    Probably I'm just duplicating the key info in that thread, but what the heck ...

    Check in the BIOS to see if the wireless possibly became disabled.

    Remove the cover from the laptop bottom and remove and carefully and firmly reinsert the wireless card 3 or 4 times. This will fix any corrosion or looseness problem.

    If still no evidence in Device Manager of the wireless then it is probably the infamous motherboard problem. Use a ExpressCard (assuming that's the slot you have) or USB wireless adapter.
