Question about HP 14.1 Refurbished Thinkpad, 1.13GHz Processor with Wireless Internet Card and Carrying Case (89777700071) PC Notebook
I have an HP Pavillion DV4000. The light above the keyboard to let me know i am connected is not working. I cannot connect using the built in wireless. How do I get it to work?
First thing to do - check wireless is turned on. It sounds basic, but
sometimes the switch can get knocked, meaning that the laptop won't
recieve any wireless signal. If this doesn't work, play around with the
settings for a while - if you're running Windows you can go to 'network
connection' in Control Panel and right-click on your wireless
connection; go to 'repair' and the repair wizard will go through it to
try and fix it. Make sure both the wireless switch on your laptop is
turned on, and that your modem is turned on too.
If this doesn't work, go to your modem's setup page (usually a web page - the address will be in the manual) and choose a different wireless channel - 0, 6 and 11 are the only non-overlapping channels. You may want to adjust your wireless signal power to make sure you have enough signal. You might also want to run a diagnostic on your modem to see if it is running properly. Some modems will display on the setup page which computers are active. See if yours comes up.
If this still doesn't work, you may want to go to an internet cafe or other wireless hotspot to check whether it is your modem which is at fault. If you get a signal and can connect, then it may well be the modem at fault. Check at some other locations just to be sure. If not, it sounds like the wireless card has a problem. If it is an internal wireless card, you might want to take it back to the manufacturer for repair. If it is an external wireless adapter, you may just want to replace the card or adapter to see if this helps.
Hope you work it out, and that you get your wireless connection back soon!
