Hi:

 

There is a wireless switch on your notebook. Check to see that it is turned on.

 

See the service manual, link below for the location of this switch. Chapter 1, Pages 1-6, 1-7. Labeled as # 4.

I once turned mine off in my dv6810us. Had no clue it was there, and couldn't connect for nothing!  :smileyhappy:

 

I must have swiped it off with my thumb.

Love it and hate it when it is something that simple. Looked at your post, looked at the link you sent, looked at the laptop and fixed.

Thanks

You're very welcome, Curt.

 

Like I wrote above...been there, done that.  :smileyhappy:

 

Pulling my hair out wondering why my wireless connection went kaput.

 

Not a good place for a switch, IMO.
