Im having a problem with my HP 2000 laptop. In order for me to get a good wifi signal I need to sit right next to my wireless router. All other wireless devices work ok all through the house so I know the wifi signal is plenty strong. Is there something I can do, or do i need to contact HP for a warranty claim? My warranty runs out in 3 weeks.

1) Disconnect the Battery & Adapter then press & hold the power button on Notebook for 30 seconds then turn on the unit and check if the Wireless light turns on.
2) Go to Device manager then uninstall the wireless drivers from Network Adapter and restart the unit and check if the light turns on.
