    sudo rmmod -f b43
    sudo rmmod -f ssb
    sudo modprobe b43
    make sure your wired connection is not connected even though it is not currently working. This should get your wireless working.
    Thank you
    I did this with my dv6233se and it gave me a warning saying that All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, it will be ignored in a future release.
    Still no wireless!
    Thank you for your help in advance.

    Hello Ubuntu problem solvers - I need your help.
    I am using Ubuntu 10.04 on the HP Pavilion dv6000. The wireless is not working. No change in the wireless light with change of switch position (remains red/orange)

    While yours is probably a Broadcom 4311 wireless too (being a HP DV6000 laptop), will you copy/paste the output of the following terminal commands here to check which type of wireless you have:

    Code:
    lspci -vvnn | grep 14e4
    sudo lshw -C network
    lsmod
    dmesg | egrep 'b4|ssb|wl|irmware'
    You can either use the menu: Applications > Accessories > Terminal or else press Ctrl-Alt-T on the keyboard for a terminal window. Most of those commands are quite picky about punctuation, so it is probably best to copy/paste the commands in the terminal window as well to prevent typos.

    I have the same problem and I followed the instructions but still cannot get the wireless to work.

    The iwconfig gives me this:

    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:off/any
    Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=off
    Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
    Power Management:off

    HELP!!

    Hi, the information you posted says your hardware switch is off, you can turn it on usually with a switch or a key like fn f2 for example.
    Thanks

    This HP dv6000 has a switch (front left corner near the status lights) - I switched it ON since the beginning.

    Is there another way to enable the power for the WiFi?

    All I can see is this power switch.

    Hi, try this please:
    Unplug your wired connection then run:
    Code:
    rmmod -f b43
    rfkill unblock all
    modprobe b43
    if this works we may have to make it permanent.
    Thanks
