Computer HP Pavilion zc6252EA came with wireless working and connecting when
I went a wondering. 11 Months ago I changed to BT (this may be a red herring)
and have not had cause to use the wireless device until last moth when it
failed to pick up any signals. I now receive a message that my comports1 & 2
plus USB are not working. When I go to Device Manager the ComPort device is
not listed. Any polite and in-expensive suggests?

Com 1 , Com 2 and USB have no link to the wireless network. These are
separate devices. The onlt common link these have is that they are
usually all port of the main noard of the PC (aka motherbaord.) These
can be turned off / on by accessing the motherboard configuration
controls known as CMOS / BIOS. Once you access the BIOS, you will
need to check, and turn on, serial port A / B, USB ports and wireless
network adapter.

NO! PCs have different methods of accessing the BIOS. There usually
is a message display during hte PC's boot up that show which key need
to be (during the time the message is showing) press. If the message
disappears before you press the key, then you will have to restart the
PC so that it is shown again.

If HP is following the older Compaq method (??,) Compaq was using the
"keyboard function" key <F10>. Other makers can use:

<Del>
<F1> -- IBM / Lenovos


Check you manuals or HP's web site.
