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

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: My HP Probook 4720S has
If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then -
To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards and wireless adapters in all the laptops/computers needs tobe configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSLor cable modem.
If the other laptops are connecting to the wireless router, then look at the wireless card configuration in these laptops and apply the same settings to your HP Probook wireless card.

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!

I think it's a virus or infection.
Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:"Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download andinstall malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When thesite opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do notclick the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the GuiInterface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version orDecline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run aQUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be inred. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad textdocument will open up showing you the results. You can close the textdocument and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTEDRESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When itfinishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot yourmachine.
