LOL, OK SSID is associated with your wireless router. It identifies your wireless network that you connect to. When you click on View Available Wireless Networks from your computer, the networks that it shows are shown by their SSID.
Try power cycling your router while your computer is connected via wireless (even with limited or no connectivity) . Unplug the router for 15 seconds and then plug it in again. Hopefully the router will assign your computer a new IP address.
it should just automatically find a wireless signal. go into your network file and look around to see what it says. mine just found a signal didn't have to do anything. click on start menu you'll see network click there.
Hi there. The wireless switch on the front bottom of the laptop, it's suppose to be blue when the button is on the right. Right click on computer and select manage, go to device manager, and go to Network Adapters, try to see a network adapter
called Broadcom, if it doesn't appear, it means that your computer
doesn't recognize the wireless card and you may have to reinstall the drivers. Please let me know how you get on.
Hi there If its Vista you have, right click "computer" select "manage" and then "device manager", then
click on the + sign next to "network adapters" and right click on the
wireless network and "un-install" the device, reboot the laptop and
wait for windows to detect the wireless card and install the drivers
for it, this will appear in the system tray (bottom right hand side)
when its done try to connect again
1.) Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Performance and Maintenance -> Administrative Tools -> Services.
2.) Scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration, and double-click Wireless Zero Configuration.
3.) On the General tab, after Startup type, change the startup type to Automatic.
4.) Start the service by clicking Start.
HP bought several motherboards from the same company in China. These boards work for about 15 months then they can't find the wireless card. This is caused by a defect in the North Bridge chip overheating over time. This chip is not replaceable at the local level. You can send it back to HP for a replacement and sometimes they will charge you $300 - $500, or you can just replace the motherboard yourself. Check with them first since there is an ungoing lawsuit regarding these boards. Either way the only fix is to replace the motherboard. This is also a problem for the dv6000 and the dv9000 models. HP knows that 30% of these will fail.
