    Hello Everyone,

    I have a Compaq Presario F553US running Windows 7 Home Premium 32 Bit, I just installed a new copy of the OS so I know this is not virus related. I cannot get my wirless card to be detected in the device manager. I downloaded the drivers and HP Wirless Assistant and still nothing. So I thought maybe the wirless card was bad and replaced it with a new card. But still nothing, I even checked the BIOS to make sure that the wirless was enable and it was.

    So now I have no idea was this suddenly stop working, the light on the front (next to the wireless switch) is an orange color instead of blue. Do anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this problem.

    Thanks
    Jim

    I've seen a number of laptops where the built-in wireless device stopped working and had to be replaced with an external USB wireless adapter. It sounds like you have the same problem.
