Cannot connect to a wireless network when am not at home

I have bought an HP pavilion dv4-1100ea in England and set it up (wireless internet and all). It worked fine at home, but I took it with me to France and i can't connect to my dad's internet at his home. It is available but it just doesn't connect. The reason is unknown.I have noticed that the network location is set to 'public'. Is this the problem? and if yes, how do i go about changing it?any help most welcome, thank you :)

Hi make sure once you connect that you enter the 'password' / key to connect to the network. You can right click on it and select 'connect to this network'. Then it should ask you for the network key once it is connected. Once entered you should be able to use 'his' network.

Let me know if this worked ok for you.

How do i hookl up my westell dsl2+ router to my hp pavilion touchsmart 14 sleekbook please help


What I hear you saying is that you want to establish a Wireless connection from the computer to the router in order to share the internet connection. Assuming the router is properly set up and other computers can access the internet with it already, you will then just need to open the HP Pavilion's Network connections and find the router in the list of wireless networks. A further assumption is that the wireless network will not be open, meaning that a password has been set for it. When you click to connect to the wireless network, it will ask for the password.

check your IP Adress settings are correct for this machine,
Go to start ,then click on run,Type CMD,Then type IPCONFIG/ALL.it will show you a list of all the devices connected to your machine and your local network,

Have you got LAN & WLAN adaptors on board?
this will explain your message,
you will have to set the ip settings on each adaptor
ie LAN 192.168.1.2 and WLAN 192.168.1.3
This wiil help determine which adaptor is to be used when connecting to the network and the internet.

If your using wireless on computer to connect to the internet then run your wizard to help setup the connection

Same for the wired LAN ,use your wizard

The settings for your modem can be reset easily and your ISP will help get you connected to the net because you already have an account with them,

I use this computer for home use only. Would like information on wireless routers and if I need any other gadgets for wireless set up.


you mean you want to connect internet or local network through wireless connection? you need an wireless access point(WAP) also known as Wireless router, but be sure the wireless router you want to buy is compatible with your wireless network built in to your laptop. no other gadgets to need if your laptop have already wireless network and if you want using within a range distance only otherwise you buy wifi antena.

Getting laptop connected to web-not Int. Explorer 8 issue


In order to get her connected legally, you will have to set up your own wireless network. This will require a broadband connection of some sort (DSL or Cable modem) and a wireless router. Your ISP or the routers tech support should be able to help you with basic configuration.

Laptop Cannot Find Home Wireless Network


Try logging into the router with your desktop hard-wired and find the 25-digit passcode and use that to log on to the wireless network with the laptop. If not, then check if connection is good by hard-wiring the router to the laptop. Let me know what happens or if you have solved the problem.
