Where is the wifi


Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon. This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look ((())) Make sure its pressed on. Usually a wifi enabled phone, computer, or whatever device, will recognize if there is wifi access near you. Most new HP (Hewlett-Packard) Pavilion notebook computers as of August 2010 include an internal wireless networking adapter, used to connect to a wireless network or router. Once connected to a router, the computer can connect to the Internet or other computers on the same network. If the wireless networking adapter is not allowing the computer to connect to a router, there are several steps that can be used to remedy the problem. Ensure that the wireless network adapter is turned on. Most HP Pavilion notebook computers have a switch that allows you to turn off the wireless adapter. The switch typically is located on the side of the computer or on the front. Ensure that the router and modem are plugged in and functioning. Ensure that the lights are illuminated on each device. Attempt to connect wirelessly using another computer, if possible, to test whether the connection problem is with the router or modem. Unplug the router and modem. Leave the power off for approximately 30 to 60 seconds, then turn them on again. Update the wireless network adapter driver using the computer's "Device Manager." To access the Device Manager, right-click on "Computer" or "My Computer," depending on the version of Windows, and click "Device Manager" from the left-side bar, or from the tab labeled "Hardware." Once in the Device Manager, expand the section labeled "Networking Devices" and right-click on the wireless network adapter. Click "Update driver software" to begin searching for an update. If an update is found, follow the onscreen instructions to install the update. Reinstall the wireless networking adapter if updating the driver does not remedy the problem. To reinstall the wireless adapter driver, right-click on it from the Device Manager and select "Uninstall." Once the device is removed from the computer, restart the computer. Once Windows loads, it will automatically detect and reinstall the driver. Run the Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool (if the computer uses the Windows 7 operating system) to diagnose any networking issues the operating system may be able to correct. To access the Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool, open the "Start" menu and type "Network" into the search field. Click "Network and Sharing Center" and then select "Diagnose and repair" from the left-side bar. The Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool will automatically run and will attempt to repair and establish the wireless connection. Attempt to manually connect to the wireless network. Open the "Network and Sharing Center" and click "Setup a new connection or network." Enter the network name, security type and network key into the text boxes and click "Next." If successful, click "Use the existing network" and then click "Connect." The network name, security type and network key can be obtained from the network administrator or by logging into the router. For help logging into the router, consult the instructions included with the router. You only need to do the following if the driver cant be installed. Make sure you Ethernet/internet is enabled in bios restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to press to enter set up (BIOS) press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys navigate to integrated peripherals look for SiS On Chip Pci Device press enter scroll to SiS 10/100m press enter make sure its "Enabled"imake sure key scroll http://support.microsoft.com/

Unable to connect to my wireless internet connection on laptop


you could try updating your wireless network driver. click start and right click computer, click manage and then device manager in the computer management window. look for network adapters in the main window and click to open drop menu. find the wifi adapter, right click and click update driver software. you will need to do this via a wired connection

Continually loses connection to internet


based on your other computers working fine in your network, first thoughts are:
1- the start of hardware failure of the wireless card in your notebook. it might be heating up leading to the drops. eventually it may give out. my sister's wireless card did that and she got it replaced free by sending it in. an arguement against this is that most of the time, when a card goes, it goes, and so the intermittent thing probably points to something else, at least at this point
2- you installed some firewall, or changed firewall settings on the laptop, and the firewall is affecting your connection. this wouldnt affect signal strength or the connection itself, but more your computer's ability to use a good connection properly. it may not be this if your computer keeps dropping the connection in the strict sense.
3- windows TCPIP stack corruption. try removing your wireless card in the devices under device manager. on reboot it will be "reinstalled" but some corrupt drivers may be reset. re-creating your wireless connection may wipe out problems. you'll have to punch in your ID and password, SSID and WEP password, if any, to your existing network.
4- wireless card drivers-- try to update your drivers to a newer driver version that which might fix a problem with the existing driver allowing drops. try your manufacturers site 1st and make sure you download drivers for your model and operating system

I cannot connect to the internet via wireless


Try opening "network connections" in the Control panel, and right-click the wireless adapter and select "repair". Another thing you can try is turning off both computers, turning off the router, then the modem. Wait one minute, turn the modem back on, wait about 15-20 seconds, then turn the router back on. Then turn your computer back on.

Their are many things this could be but this will fix the most common things. If you have recently installed any new software try restoring your computer to an earlier time:
start>all programs>accessories>system tools> "System Restore"
Restore your computer to the most recent date when the wireless worked.

If none of these things work, let us know and we'll go from there.

Good Luck
Simon.

Wireless router compatability


I think yo should do this first before replacing:

To reset the router to factory defaults, connect the Ethernet cable to the router and check and set the settings.

This should allow you to get into the routers menu and see status and information to help you.

You also have to be sure whether or not you have 'allow windows to manage my wireless connection' checked or not
(In you Network setting)

Let me know what happens after that & I'll be glad to help
