Question about HEWLETT-PACKARD HP Pavilion dv6-3025dx Notebook

Dns server is not responding, no wireless conncection

I have a new pavilion HP laptop. Had lots of problems getting on the internet in the past, then updated the driver, and that helped. Now neither the laptops in the house (other a MAC) connect to the internet, although I see a wireless connection on my phone. I tried manually updating the IP address, with two different addresses. I made sure all the drivers were up to date for my computer and the router. I changed the wireless "channel" to 6 instead of auto...nothing. I'm using a zoom modem/router combo unit. please help.

what modem model is it?
is it yours? or you ISPs
the above URL is the web page inside your modem.
see photo below for such page. examples. from zoom/

if its not YOUR MODEM (you own it, like I DO)
then it's the ISP modem(your service providers)
and the password is their secret
so call them and tell them to fix your problem.dns server is not responding, no wireless conncect - ec0ecbec-df8a-4989-b624-2bff58e5aa71.jpg

YOU DO: YOUR modem, 101:
using any internet browser us this URL.
I use Firefox V20, portable, because it can talk
to any home camera, or any , modem and any router with no problems. V52 and newer are hopeless now
as it thinks you are hacking, so some such rot.
Windows 10 may get angry too.... watch out...

    the zoom modem/router combo unit
    has model number
    and came with a book , well, has one online for it. sure.
    read it?
    zoom 5354? what? it has a model we can not ever guess what you have, it must be stated clearly and fully. the number

    it has wired ports, do they work
    IF that works? and the internet works ok? wired. that proves...
    leaving only WIFI.bad.
    you saw the SSID on the CELL phone, good.
    so this router is broadcasting the SSID, as all do by default, so you can see it.

    but you have never configured the router,
    there are 2 ways, (more really)
    one is do so directly, (this is how I do it for good reasons, always, security max here.)
    by hand.
    there is a WPS button to do this easy.
    read the manual on WPS ways.

    here they all are.

    it's a 53xx something if cable modem
    so where is its home page, web page below.
    easy it's in there manual, read it?

    here is 5363 book

    see that,?
    now open the book
    see page 30?
    see this magic URL (its anIP , on your home net)

    to the router/modem (combo)

    your in. (nice no, you are in control now)
    see the wifi sections? there?? sure.

    click wireless

    give it a nice SSID name, (your pets name?)
    and pick a level of encryption (WEP is bad)
    WPA2 IS BEST.!!!
    type in a key(passphrase)
    use a key that hackers can not guess.!!!
    hacking your home , is not good. dont let them.
    click apply
    now join YOUR WIFI , when you see PETS name
    join it (connect) and use the new passprhase.
    write it down ,
    we put all our passwords, (never banks)
    in a book on page 100. we have 100s of books here, and only we know which one has it, and page. I lie.
    where i put mine , is my secret, but you will never find mine ever...... or bad guys.

    this is the best way for security.

    if this is too hard , then read that page
    on WPS button magic.

Try a hard reset on the router first;

Turn router around;

Find the small pinhole usually located by the power cord;

Stick something like a paperclip in it and press down firmly for 1 minute;

wait until you see the lights blink and then go out;

Then; unplug the power cord from router for about half a minute;

Then, plug it back in.

Try it again and see if it stays on.

You can also try and upgrade your firmware if this doesn't help at all.

Click this link and follow the instructions for updating your firmware.

However; If your router is old or damaged, it may need to be replaced. They shouldn't continue to reboot over and over.

SOURCE: how do i connect to wireless on my hp 455. im

I've been in your exact shoes and feel your pain. The bottom line is connecting to a wifi network is a matter of choosing the SSID which represents your network name and then entering the correct network key. That's pretty much all there is to it. Since this is her first computer, I'm going to assume explaining this concept is not as easy as I have made it out to be.
This is less of a wifi issue and more of a new user issue, so here is my suggestion. Have her connect her MINI to the router with an ethernet cable (she will ask what that is. Just tell her it is the cable that came with the router). At this point, she will be online. THEN, download TeamViewer onto your computer and walk her through the same process. You may have to skim the instructions (you'll get it down in 5 minutes or less). This will allow you to take control of her computer from where you are and configure the wireless just like you would if you were sitting in front of her PC.
Let me know if this helps!

DNS server not responding on WRT54GL Linksys router

You are looking for DHCP server. It provides the IPs addresses for devices to connect. DNS resolves the IP into a name. Not really required unless you are setting up a virtual server, or the special setup.

I have dowloaded all the drivers ann i still can't connect to the internet

Hi there,

This problem could be due to your DNS settings or your IP Address. First of all you will have to configure your router to accept the new computer. To do this you will need to go in to the router in your browser window and add your new device.

Then you will need to configure your router to either automatically assign an IP Address or use an allocated IP Address and use the same setting on your new computer. Also, you will need to configure your router to either assign a DNS Server automatically or to use an allocated DNS Server and once again you will need to use the same settings on your new computer.

Your IP Address is crucial in order for your new computer to connect properly to your network. Your DNS Server is crucial in order for your new computer to access the internet through your network.

Laptop finding router but no internet connection

If you can connect directly to your virgin Media Broadband and get internet then your laptop and broadband router is fine.

The wireless router appears not to have a DNS entry and you will need to add that manually.

I suggest that you connect directly to the Broadband modem, be sure you can get onto the internet. Once you have confirmed you can get onto the internet you need to get the dns information from your Broadband modem for later.

once connected directly to the broadband modem, click start>run> then type "CMD" then click open. you will get a prompt type the following and record the DNS Server ip addresses.

"ipconfig /all" then hit enter
this will display your ipaddress information but mostly you need the DNS server ip addresses.

once you have recorded them rerun the install, but this time instead of at the end of the install where it shows the Wireless router information you can modify or change it and add the DNS server entries.

Also by default most wireless routers ip address is and you can type that from a internet explorer and change it from there as well. I believe it's no ID or user name and the password is admin.

Good luck
