I currently have the same issue as Pohusla. I bought the pavillion 1035dx in August 2012 and my wireless will (continuously) disconnect and will refuse to turn back on. I have gone to best buy multiple times, and it's really a hassle because I am a student and need the computer 24/7. I cannot connect via ethernet at school, but I am currently plugged into an ethernet cable and the internet connection is working. When I go into device manager, the Qualcomm network adapter is not even listed, which makes it impossible to change the settings on. If anyone can help I will gladly appreciate it.

Good to hear that it's resolved. I know for me it is not the modem because this consistently happens everywhere I go. The f12 button itself will stay "amber", leaving me unable to connect to a wireless network. Does anyone know if a wireless usb adapter is a possible solution?

I have tried installing the new driver which came out two weeks ago and no luck :/. I just have one question. Would your button turn red and not turn on when you pressed it. Im just concerned that the wifi button will continue to be amber so the usb wireless card will be useless.

Hmm. I think the button should work with the USB adapter installed. If it doesn't, then you might try finding an updated driver for it also. There is another thread on HP that might help, too. Search for Atheros Wifi Adapter. There is a guy on there name of Paul who seems to have helped a lot of people. I have seen one specifically for the m6-1035dx with Atheros Adapter also. I will go back in my files and see if I can find the threads for you and post them here. I'm not an expert, but I have seen your exact same problem many times in my research. Hope it helps.
