Question about HP Pavilion dv8000z Notebook
I cannot connect to the internet using my router and dsl modem. I have a built in wireless connection adapter and an external wireless adapter that came with the router. Niether works. I can connect to the internet using the ethernet cable directly from the router or connect through the modem. My host computer states that there is an ip address conflict with the laptop, but I haven't been able to resolve it. I have rebooted, reset the modem and the router and reconfigured the router, all to no avail. The diagnostic tools that came with Windows XP Pro cannot solve the problem. I am at a loss as to what to do. I do have ample signal strength with the router/laptop. Please help!!
You haven't specified if the host computer is able to access the internet. Ip Address confict can be one of the reasons why the laptop isnt able to connect and we can have a series of reasons why we have this IP Address conflict - 1) There is no wireless encryption defined. So, we have neighbors connecting to the wireless network causing IP Address conflicts. 2) The laptop is not able to renew the IP Address after the lease expires. This can mostly be resolved by restarting the computer and in certain cases flusing the TCP/IP stack. 3) There is a static IP Address assigned to the laptop in the router's DHCP range which is conflicting with the host computer. I would suggest you may initiate a chat with me or anyone else who has expertise in routers to get this successfully resolved. That would definitely save your time. Good luck
