I have an HP tx1320us tablet notebook that has a Broadcom wireless card internally. Operating system is Vista Home Premium, 2.2 Ghz processor and 4GB of RAM. When I try to connect to my established wireless home network, my Wireless Assistant does not find it (even in the same room). When I click on Setup in the Wireless Assistant, I get a message saying (Your WLAN is turned off or disabled) I contacted HP via chat and they had me install
Brodacom driver 3929.exe from the ftp site - No Change occurred. I have the Bluetooth adapter also, as well as a dialup modem. I have connected the
internet wirelessly before, but only infrequently. Now it won't do anything.
Any help would be sincerely appreciated if you have an idea what's wrong or know how to enable the WLAN.

I had the same problem as yours. To enable your WLAN, just follow those simple setps: from the Device Manager under Network adapters right click on NVIDIA nForce and click on properties,, in the advanced tab you will find Property. under it click on Flow Control, and probably you will find that it is disabled, then just click in the box and enable it.... I hope it work with you also....

Hello, I have a hp tx2000 notebook tablet. I followed your directions and found that my flow was disabled. When I enable it I have about 2 seconds that it recognizes the wireless network then it quickly stops working again while it's enabled. For the last couple of weeks my laptop has been acting this way. One day wireless will work and the next day it doesn't work. I've updated all drivers, etc... This time it's looking like it's not going to work anymore. A couple weeks ago when it first happen I went into my BIOS to fix the problem but this time the BIOS was fine and enabled. What do I do now? I have no idea what to do about this I've exhausted at least 100 tutorials on the net and hp support (not chat or phone cause they want to charge me) and nothing is working right now. It is a mega pain in the @ss to have to be stuck to a direct cable plugin. When I click setup network (like I'm going to try and set it up fresh) I get a message 'wlan is disabled or turned off' something like that. Meanwhile my bluetooth is on and so is my wireless (they're the same button). I would really appreciate it if you have a thought or solution. Honestly in the last 3 years this will be the second pc that has taken a dump on me. Also on this laptop I've already went through a driver within the first year. If this thing breaks """again""" I'm getting a mac. My partner has had a mac for 7 years with no problems what so ever and he uses his 10 hours a day (he is a graphic designer).
Any help would be great...

Same garbage here... Hp Pavilion tx 1000, 23 months old. Wireless just randomly ceased working altogether. Wireless light and switch are on, but only recognized as Bluetooth by the HP Wireless Assistant. Used BIOS F10 and turned all back on. Started in safe mode. Uninstalled Wireless Assistant and Reinstalled. Changed Flow Controls for NVidia. Uninstalled Multiple Copies of the Adapter. Reinstalled. Uninstalled and Reinstalled Drivers. I go to network Settings, and no Wireless Connection EXISTS. Ther is a LAN icon, but nothing for wireless, as if it never existed on the tablet... I have Rolled back to SP1, I have rolled back to multiple previous reinstalls, and the problem follows. I have read countless forums, and everyone has tried thousands of things that seem to work for individuals, but nothing that has yet worked for me. LAN Hardline works beautifully, yet the Wireless function has ceased to exist or function. I highly doubt that my wirelsss card has crapped out on me as countless people are sharing in the same suffering. Doesn anyone have the answer? HP and Microsoft are both incredibly clueless.
Don't blame Microsoft on this one. And HP is not clueless. Unfortunately I can't post info or links to some of the resources that will offer some clear insight into this issue shared by THOUSANDS of HP laptop owners. Try Google. This is a serious problem that HP doesn't really seem to care about especially if you're past the one year warranty and the two year Enhanced Warranty program. Trust me. Do some homework. Don't pay for repairs that still use the defective parts again! Best of luck. Welcome to the club.

Appreciate it! You can trust that I have done extensive homework.. I have been building computers since the Radio Shack TRS (Trash) 80. I should have been smart enough to stay away from Microsoft, but HP has always been a trusted name in my household. They're supposed to be the name of quality. It's amazing that calling them gets you a nice customer care rep in Mumbai, India that doesn't care about your issue. I KNOW it's a software issue, as the hardware cannot just be electronically programmed to short like that. There's no internal timing mechanism and whatnot. Thanks for your support, and good luck.

THIS IS SYMPTOMATIC, I'VE FOUND OUT--from various online forums-- FOR THE PAVILIONS.
AS for me, I got mine in Dec.2007. This past summer (2009) the wireless went, even though my computer thought it was still there. Installing a new adapter card didn't help at all. The techie said that only replacing the motherboard (which as we all know, isn't worth it) would help. The problem wasn't with the adapter. Cheap fix: $20 external wireless adapter. That worked great until this fall when my hard drive started to give (ALSO SYMPTOMATIC OF THESE COMPUTERS, I'VE FOUND OUT). Last week it went completely and Windows will no longer boot. Black screen.
In addition to the forums which all confirm these problems, I ran into a random guy on the street last week belly-aching because of same computer problems as I've been having (but unfortunately, he didn't back up regularly and lost a lot of docs). I couldn't resist asking what he had: HP Pavilion.
I recommend regular backups and recommend that you prepare for the worst. Forecast: your computer is on the way of going the way everyone else's seems to be going. It seems HP is happy with a quick turnaround time on its computers, but hasn't caught on yet that customers aren't.
FYI--I was told that since the HPs run so hot, that may be a reason everything seems to "give". I'm no expert, but I was told that AMD runs hot and this may be the problem: AMD + inadequate cooling. When i'm in the States, my HP wasn't running too hot (temperature wise) but on 220 current both the computer and the power box can sizzle and egg (no, i haven't tried; that's just an expression).
I was a very happy HP customer until last week, despite having to reformat 2x over the past year, and losing my internal wireless. But after reading how many people are having the exact same troublesome problems with this expensive computer, after only 1-2 years, HP has lost my business. I won't buy another. Fortunately for them, no one drives these things on the freeway, so they can get away with being irresponsible about backing up their products.
