Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

1 Answer

Sporadic internet wireless connection

Suddenly, my wireless connection is not working... except when it spontaneously does for no reason for a minute or so.

The light on the connection button is off, and I get the following messages when I try to connect or try to repair the connection:

-You are currently not connected to any networks

-This computer does not have a wireless network adapter installed and configured.

-Windows did not detect any wireless network hardware.

The other computer in the house is picking up wireless. Occassionally, (maybe 3 times in the last week) I will notice suddenly that the connection light is on, and I can connect, but the next time I try, it is off again.

    What does "rolling back the driver" mean? "Safe mode sounds familiar, but not exactly sure how to do that either.

Have you tried putting the computer in to safe mode. I had the same problem with 3 other laptops but all the same model. I think it has something to do with an update. I put it into safe mode and rolled back the driver and its working fine

    • If the
      computer is running, shut down Windows, and then turn off the power

    • Wait 30
      seconds, and then turn the computer on.

    • Start
      tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you
      begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard
      error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.

    • Ensure
      that the Safe mode option is selected.

    • Press
      Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode
    Then go to control panel and go to device manager. Go to network adapters (make sure your wireless switch it set to on) find the wireless adapter, right click and click properties. and hit roll back driver. If it says roll back driver is not avalible hit uninstall and hit ok. Then at the top of the main device manager page there is a icon with a magnifying glass over a computer click on that and your computer should find your wireless device and start installing it again. Hope this helps!

Fujitsu Amilo Pro Notebook 2010 For some reason although finding my wireless network will not connect and is not asking for network key. Any ideas?

Hi Charles,

Try turning off your wireless router and modem for 2 minutes and then turn them back on. Wait another 2 minutes for them to settle down and try connecting to the internet again.

If this does not work you may have to reinstall the drivers for the wireless card in your laptop.

The internet was working, we turned it off because we were told to by itunes, as we were installing itunes for a new ipod. We turned it on again and no internet working, and the signal sign on the laptop...

The firewall is blocking the connection. Turn off all computers. Turn off router and modem. In this order, turn them all back on. First modem, wait one minute. Next router, wait one minute. Last, all computers. You should have connection now.

Internet suddenly not working

You can try to run a 'Winsock fix'
Sometimes internet settings just get messed up and this sets them to default.

I've personally also had a lot of problems with Norton. (The Symantec Corporate version is much better). If you are running Norton try their removal tool and see if you can connect after rebooting. Then reinstall your anti-virus software right away!
