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!

I am getting a very slow connection suddenly through WRTP5G router

Try resetting you wireless adapter, sometimes that resolves the issue. You could also check your connection status and try to repair the connection there. Or turn off your PC then the router then the modem wait 10 minutes power up the modem after all the lights are lit turn on the router when all those lights are on turn on your PC, then recheck your connection status and repair if needed.

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!
