no wireless on Presario V6000

The notebook is otherwise working perfectly but without wireless. The radiobutton has no effect on enabling or disabling the wireless-module. Could i fix this by replacing the wireless-module (Broadcom BCM 4311) or should i do something else?

Re: no wireless on Presario V6000

Hi,

 

Open Windows Control Panel and then open Windows Mobility Centre.  Is there an option to enable the wireless adapter here?

 

Also, from the Control Panel, open Device Manager ( if using XP, click the Start Menu, click Run, type in devmgmt.msc and hit enter ) and open up Network Adapters.  Can you see the wireless adapter listed here and does it have any error icon against it?

 

Regards,
