Wireless Assistant stopped working

Recently the HP Wireless Assistant on my dv9408nr notebook stopped working so I can no longer find wireless networks.  Nothing happens whenever I try to open it either.   Could I have accidentally disabled?  How would I re-enable it given that it won't open.  I have even tried to uninstall and re-install the driver.

Re: Wireless Assistant stopped working

Not really.  It suddenly started working a few days ago and just as suddenly stopped working today.  Because my wireless card has also disappeared from my device manager, I assume the 2 events are related.  I'd guess that the internal wireless card has somehow become loose or faulty.

Re: Wireless Assistant stopped working

Were you able to find any solution to the issue?  I am having the same problem with my HP Pavilion dv9000.

@mabrowse

 

Check if your model is on the list of those known as prone to hardware problems  HERE  HP had put into place an Extended Warranty on the models on the list, but  only good for 24 months,as in 12 months after 1 yr warranty expired.

 

The steps recommended to try first in that article are getting BIOS version F.3D and latest Broadcom driver from your models page HERE

 

Good luck!
