Right Click on "Wireless Network Connection" --> Select "Enable"
Right Click on "Wireless Network Connection" again --> Select Properties
Make sure the check box "Show Icon in notification area" is checked --> Click "OK"

Laptop wont connect to wireless network but desktop is fine.


Perhaps, it just needed a new IP address. Simply rebooting the computer and resetting the IP Address of the computer took care of the issue.

That sounds like symptoms of Manufacturer & Windows drivers conflicting. Try uninstall the Manufacturer Drivers and let the windows ones do the work, and see how that goes down.

you will need to add the wireless network manually.
First you will need to remove the network from the prefered network list. I believe the Operating system on the computer is XP. and the security on the wireless network is WEP. make sure that you are typing the correct network key.

Disconnection issues with home wifi.


First install the latest LAN and wireless drivers.
Second all the NIC ans wireless cards need to have the TCP/IP address to be obtained automatically (no fixed IP addresses unless you have a print server with a fixed IP address, then assign this address high so there is no possible conflict). The D-Link is also a DHCP server and issuses IP addresses to the various LAN and wireless card so there won't be any IP address conflicts.

I had a similar problem recently... You have to actually install the scanner software. You probably only installed the print drivers, but not the scanner software. If you don't have the CD handy, go to www.hp.com/#Support. In step one select "Download drivers and software (and firmware)". In step 2 enter your model number (photosmart C4385) and then press "go". It will lead you to a page to select your operating system. Follow that link to download the entire CD (large file).

When you are installing the software, make sure to install the scanner software too.

I think you are mixing up two different technologies. You said you have recently bought a Wireless Router and when you try scanning for Bluetooth devices you can't find it?

First of all, Bluetooth isn't Wi-Fi. You should go to Network Settings under Settings in the XMB and choose for a Wireless Connection and then let it scan.

Be sure you don't have a 40 GB PlayStation 3 since they don't have Wi-Fi.

I hope this helps. Please rate.
