My built in wireless is not working.

My built-in wireless in my HP Pavilion Elite m9417c desktop computer isn't picking up any wirless networks. I put the computer right next to my linksystem and it is not finding the network; the wireless light isn't even "on." All my other computers are picking up my wireless router.

    Thanks for your comments, but I just found out from HP that the built-in wireless antennae came with the product but not the internal wireless card (which was misleading in their product manual). It is basically equipped and ready to have a wireless card installed. I didn't know if anybody has seen this with other computers? HP did get back to me in a timely manner.

    Was it pickup up any wireless networks before and then suddenly stopped doing it? Did you make any software changes or windows update just prior to the failure?

If your built-in wireless is not working then you must check your wireless connection first and find out the problem from where the connection was generated. Hewlett Packard is one of the most prominent manufactures of notebook computers today, to just check out the switches of your wireless network connection and then rebuilt the connections your wireless network built by you.

Wow, that's surprising. HP puts on an external wireless antenna attached to the casing, but there's no card inside? Crazy.

If HP is going to sell you a wireless card, you can bet they'll charge you far more than you'd pay elsewhere.

I suggest that you visit NewEgg.com or Buy.com to buy a wireless PCI card. These are easy to install and setup. You basically can't go wrong with many of the choices out there, but it's best to observe the product feedback. My recommendation is to get one with a corded external antenna. This way you can be assured of getting a very strong signal when you're not immediately near the wireless router. Rosewill makes some good ones. If you do plan on having your computer fairly close to the router, be sure to get one that also has an RJ45 wire socket too. That way if you're doing heavy duty downloads, you can increase your speed with a long cord directly connected to the router.

There may be button that switches on wireless on the keyboard or on the side of the machine.

Also try the FN key plus the correct Fkey with the wireless symbol

Diskboot failure insert system disk


What was the problem in the first place? Why are you trying to restore the computer?

Or reading wrong; do you mean the computer will not start? Boot?

Primer:
Disk Boot. -> The bootstrap files on the harddrive.
Bootstrap <- Make it easier to understand?

The basic Windows files.

Can't access restoration on the harddrive with F11? Quite common.
I mean, how crazy is that? Let's put the restoration files, (Basic Windows files), on the harddrive? So if the harddrive goes bad?????

Suggest you use the Restoration Disk.

{Pre-built computer manufacturers were packing the Restoration Disk/s with the computer. As time went by the manufacturers saw the users were not using the disk/s, or loosing them.

Didn't want to use, because of fearing computer damage if they error, or didn't even want to try.

Okay. Put the restoration files on the harddrive, then.
Have the new owner make a BACKUP, when the owner turns the computer on for the first time.
Save a few cents without providing the disk for each computer.
(Take a few cents times 50,000 computers, or more)

Hardly anyone makes a backup disk, when the computer is turned on for the first time. If the harddrive goes bad you cannot access the restoration files.

Computer manufacturers have gone back to packing the restoration disk, with the computer }

What?
Don't have the Restoration Disk? (I won't say anything about not making a backup disk. Could be failure time with it, also)

Go to the back of the computer tower, or up on the side. Write down the Serial Number. It's in the white Service Tag. S/N = Serial Number
(NO, do not post it on the internet. Only to an authorized HP representative)

Call HP Support.
In the USA call 1-800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The Restoration Disk is free. The shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship. $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

For other countries use HP Worldwide Support,

http://welcome.hp.com/country/w1/en/support.html

Do I think the Restoration Disk will repair the problem?
Dunno. Don't know what the original problem was. You haven't stated it yet.

Can the HP Pavilion 763n PC Desktop use a wireless router?


Your computer has a "built-in" 10/100BT network connection integrated on the motherboard but to go wireless you'll have to add either a PCI (internal) or USB (external) wireless network adapter to transmit/receive the signal from your wireless router. Think "walkie-talkie" here with the wireless router installed AFTER the modem (phone line outlet needed) located in a central area of your home and transmitting/receiving to the individual wireless network adapters that must be separately installed in each computer.

HP pavilion desktop only has built in RJ45 connector--problem?


If you have built in 10/100 RJ45 then any network connection is possible.

One to one, you can connect to any built in 10/100 RJ45 equipped computer with a 'cross-over' network cable.

More commonly you can connect to a 'router' which allows a number of computers to connect to each other and to the internet . Use a search engine to find net setup on the 'web.
This is a very large subject so you need to decide what you want to do first!

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.
