HP IQ506 losses wireless connection woken from sleep mode

I have a D-Link wireless router that I've been using for years. My new HP IQ506 and new HP C4599 wireless printer work fine until I put the PC to sleep. When I awaken the computer I loose internet connectivity. Connectivity can be reestablished by restarting the machine but this awkward. Hp had me go into the device manaager, Network adapters, 802.11 wireless lan card, power management tab. The first technician had me disallow letting the computer shut down the device to save power. This did nothing. The second technician had me enable the computer to turn off device. This made no sense and sure enough, the computer shut down the card even if it was already up. I 've reset it back to disallow the computer to turn off the card but I'm right back to where I started. Is there a way to reactivate the card after sleep mode shuts it down without restarting the computer. HP support tells me this isn't but given the conflicting advice I've gotten from them I'm not at all sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Well, my solution has worked six consecutive times so MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, this is the final fix. At any rate I went into the Device manager, network adaptor card, 802.11 wireless card and then the advanced tab. Here I found the the Carrier Detect disabled so I enabled it. I also went to the power saving mode on the same property list and set the value to CAM (Constantly Awake). As mentioned, I have put the machine to sleep six times since the change and all six time it reawakens with the network card enabled. You have to wait a about a minute once the system is back up for it to connect to the internet but it does so flawlessly. By the way, before I went to the Adavanced tab I hit the tab called General and it told me "The device is working properly". I'm not sure what this mean when in fact it could not see the network. I just ignored it.

I don't know if my making these setting changes will affect anything else but if you know that they will please notify me. So far, so good.

PS: HP support didn't seem to know anything about this. Neither the PC people or the printer people seemed to know about network issues. I like the machine quite a bit but the support left me cold.

Wireless disconnect in sleep mode?


I think that is normal to conserve energy. There are times when it will take the network connections down to conserve energy.

If it is a problem you can always increase the time on the sleep mode or set it to NEVER.

Change Your Wireless Channel

If you're using a Linksys router, you'll need to browse to the address of your router, which is probably set to http://192.168.1.1 but could be assigned to another address. You can run a quick ipconfig command at the command prompt to check:

image12.png

In my case the address is different (because I changed it, of course), but what you're looking for is the Default Gateway for your Wireless connection, and then go to http:// in your browser. Enter in the password that you hopefully remember, and head to the Wireless -> Basic Wireless Settings tab.

My router has two separate bands, but your router might just have a single band here. In my case, what I've done is set the 2.4 GHz band to only be used for Wireless-G, and the 5GHz one to Wireless-N only. Since I'm not having any problems with the Wireless-N settings, I've left those on auto.

image13.png

Where I am having a problem, however, is my Wireless-G devices-so what I've done is chosen channel 9, since it's the only channel that's not being used by any of my neighbors, who are using mostly channels 1 and 6, though a few are using 11 as well.

Channels 1, 6, and 11 are the most common channels to choose, and most routers will use one of them as the default channel-but the general idea is to be as far away from everybody else as you can.

image14.png

Note: I've also configured my router for 20 MHz only on the 2.4 GHz Wireless-G band, just because that was the only way it would let me choose the standard channel manually.

If you are using a different router, the IP address will generally be the same, but you'll have to figure out how to change the Wireless channel without any screenshot tours. It's usually fairly easy, though, once you know what you're looking for.

Hello,

Connect the computer to the router via Ethernet. Navigate to acer's website and click on your country of residence. Navigate to drivers and downloads, then, click on notebook, netbook, or desktop. It will then follow the prompts to download and install your wireless driver. It should be labeled clearly. Unfortunately, I don't have an Acer, so can not direct you to an exact filename. If this isn't satisfactory, post it with a model number and type of computer and I'll get the direct link to you.

How to make a HP Iq506 to get out of sleeping mode?


Usually coming back from the SLEEP mode should be done easily.
If your computer doesn't check:
* if your touchscreen is responding
* if your fan spins (just feel the air stream generated)
* if your HDD is working (check the LED indicator).
If the answer to all thee is YES, then you have a problem with the POWER SUPPLY UNIT.
Check the voltage on it and see if the designed parameters are respected. If not, replace it.
But if the answer is NO, than you have a serious problem with your motherboard. That one has to be replaced.

My SOny Vaio VGN-N160G wireless not working


Follow the procedure below to troubleshoot wireless connection issues, including dropped connections, failed connections or low signal strength.
NOTE: Because each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, try connecting to the wireless network and view Web sites using the Internet Explorer after completing each step.
  1. Verify the physical wireless switch is turned on. Refer to the user's manual for instructions.
  2. Turn on the WLAN adapter using the Wireless Device Switch utility.
  3. Restart the Wireless Zero Configuration service.
  4. Reinstall the original wireless adapter driver.Uninstall the driver from device manager and reinstall it from the VAIO Recovery software. IMPORTANT: If model-specific information is required to use the VAIO Recovery software, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online through the Manuals/Specs/Warranty link on this page.
  5. If available, download and install a wireless adapter driver update from the Drivers & Software link on this page.
  6. If possible, test another computer on the wireless network. NOTE: If another computer is unsuccessful, contact the wireless router manufacturer or ISP to verify they are working properly.
  7. Remove the network bridge if one exists and then restart the computer.
  8. Boot the computer into safe mode and test the wireless connection in the Internet Explorer browser. NOTE: If the connection works in safe mode, the issue is likely caused by anti-virus or anti-spyware software. Configure the software properly per the manufacturer's instructions.
    WARNING: If anti-virus or anti-spyware software has been removed or disabled to troubleshoot the issue, Sony recommends enabling or reinstalling it to prevent exposure to malicious software. Once the software is enabled or reinstalled, configure it properly per the manufacturer's instructions to allow the Internet or network connection to work correctly.
  9. Check the WAN IP address of the router as per the manufacturer's instructions. NOTE: If the router is not getting a WAN IP address, the issue is likely caused by a problem with ISP.
    WARNING: There is a risk of data loss. If a router has been specifically configured (PPPoe, DSL, MAC address filtering, security, etc.), the settings will be removed by resetting the router and it will have to be reconfigured.
  10. Reset the router and/or modem per the manufacturer's instructions.
  11. If available, install a firmware update for the router and/or modem. Check the manfacturer's Web site for updates and instructions.
