i have a pavilion g6 and i cannot connect to my home wireless network, the wireless connection light on the keypad does not change color, it just stays orange. There is no issue with my home network, I have other devices on it.

You have a hardware issue with your network card which is why the light is orange and you can't connect to anything.
1. Wireless button, key, or switch is in the off position.
2. Card is missing hardware drivers.
3. Card is turned off in the wireless assistant or connection manager.
4. Card is disabled in the BIOS.
5. Card has failed.
