I have an HP dv6000 notebook computer with Vista. All of a sudden the wireless connection stopped working. I have wireless in my home so I know there is connection service available. The computer I am using to write this uses it, too.
I try to click on HP Wireless Assistant and nothing happens. I went out to hp.com and downloaded the drivers for HP Wireless Assistant, but still, nothing happens. Nothing shows up for wireless connection anywhere.
Any ideas? I've tried everything I can think of with no results. The first time it happened, I turned off the computer, cut the power, and removed the battery for a couple of minutes. It started working again so I thought life was good. However, the next time I signed on it was not working and hasn't worked since.
I went into device manager and under Network Adapters, I noticed it said that the Microsoft ISTAPI was not working properly so I uninstalled it and reinstalled it. It is working properly now, but the HP Wireless Assistant will still not work and my wireless connection does not show up. HELP!!!
