Have you switched the wireless key to "on"?

Have you tried to connect first by ethernet cable?

You may find these HP product support notes on how to connect wirelessly using the HP wireless assistant useful.

Does it ask for a security key?

Did you first connect using an ethernet cable as I suggested? Have you tried the HP Wireless Assistant? As onthelimit1 says did you put the security key in. If you follow the steps in the assistant it will take you through the connection procedure step by step.

Have just found a post on the HP forum for your laptop.

Start - Type in Device Manager - look for Network Adapters - click on it - find the wireless adapter - double click - advanced - if there is a setting b/g/n or b/g? If it is set to b/g/n set it to b/g.

While you have this open go into the power management tabs and make sure that the enable this computer to turn this off to save power is not ticked.
