Recently I discovered ater an HP update, that my wireless connectivity shows on screen that I am "not connected" but when i click on it it shows a green bar status and the word connected..Whne I go to my provider it will not connect. If I go to Intrnet Explorer symbol and click ti will connect but no change in the display.
I tried hardwire connection and sometimes it will connet and sometimes it will not. I did not have this issue until the reecnt HP update that came over the intrnet from official HP..Maybe I need a good link to reinstall my driver for this unit
HP Laptop Pavilliong7-1167 dx on Windows7 64-bit Thanks

HI @ConnyMe ,
Welcome to the HP Forums!
It is a terrific place to find answers
For you to have the best experience in the HP forum I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide Learn How to Post and More
I grasp that it shows a green bar as connected but you are unable to access the Internet.
Have you tried removing or deleting the existing networks and creating a new one. Did that help?
Here is another link to asssit you from How-To_Geek How To Troubleshoot Internet Connection Problems
If this has not resolved the issue you could try a restore back to when it was working.
Next I would install the original drivers HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Using Recovery Manager to Restore Software and Drivers (Windows 7)

Thank you Sparkles1. I finally solved it by turning off the laptop and on again and touched the button for wireless. I also hardwired the cable (pluged it in) in place of going wireless. Despite reseting the FIOs router none of it worked. I then kept going betwee wire plug in and toggling the wifi swithc on the laptoop and voila somehow it kicked in. I am watching and will post if the problem comes up again. I will save the tips.
