It might not be anything your doing wrong, the wireless portion of the card may have just gone bad. you could check this out by reconnecting your old router back up to verify it works or doesn't. If it doesn't work your wireless in your laptop went bad presuming that the wireless was not deactivated on the laptop. if it does work the Vista Driver may be incompatible with the new router, you may be able to hook up both routers at the same time which would allow you to keep using your HP system.
Try to restart your router. If it doesn't work, try to restart your computer. If it still doesn't work, make sure that you don't have a power on/off for wireless on your laptop. If you have that button, turn it on/off and wait to see for a reaction from the laptop. If nothing happens, try to check the laptop's conectivity to other wireless devices.
I hope this will work!
Have a nice day!
You could setup two different profiles, one for each wireless router. Configure your home wireless router with a different SSID and encryption setting to the office wireless router. Then configure the wireless card in your laptop with two different profiles, one for the office wireless router and one for the home wireless router. When you want to use the home or the office wireless router, just call up the profile you require.
- delete the wireless profiles
network and sharing center
manage wireless networks
Delete the profiles
you will then have to enter the wireless security key for any networks you connect to
The wireless card in this other laptop needs to be configured with this router's wireless settings. It is using the other wireless router's settings and therefore cannot connect to this wireless router..
Most wireless cards in laptops will allow you to setup different Profiles for different router's wireless settings. This will allow the laptop to connect to the different wireless routers by selecting the Profile for the wireless router you want to use.
I suggest you name the Profile by location which will make it easy to identify the correct wireless router.
It has nothing to do with the brands. I do have different peripherals of different brands and they work well.
Maybe your son's laptop is more recent than yours. When you connect the wireless adapter to your laptop, does it detect the wireless network? I remember having a similar problem on vacation. At the hotel, I could'nt connect to the wireless network. The tech support told me to adjust some settings on my laptop. He said to go to the Network connexions, right-click on the wireless connection and selection Properties. Click on Configure...And select the Advanced button. Then on the list select Power on saving Mode. Other than Max power save mode.
In order for you to find your routers address, click START, RUN, type CMD followed by RETURN or ENTER, and type IPCONFIG/ALL followed by RETURN or ENTER. Look for DEFAULT GATEWAY. Put that address in your browser to access it.
