    You didn't mention what OS you're planning on using but if it is Linux according to this page you only have partial wireless support with the Broadcomm adapter in your unit.

    Please post which OS you are attempting to configure so that I or one of the other techs here can assist you further...

Hello,

My name is ArmyMason, might I suggest that you do a system restore to take your computer back to a date the computer was working correctly. Click on start, all programs, Accessories, system tools and click on System Restore. Tell it to restore and choose a date on the calendar. If this doesn't resolve the issue run Anti virus to see if your computer is infected. If this doesnt help please consider using our Premium service.

Thanks,
ArmyMason

How do you turn on the wire less device


you need to update the driver and to do this you need to connect to wired internet and run windows update, including optional updates. the driver that you get from hp's website is useless. once you've run windows update (you need to keep clickong check for updates until it says your computer is up to date) you need to run your laptop for about 5 minutes while it finishes updating the driver. suddenly the orange button next to the power button will turn blue. if it doesn't do it on its own then press it and wait. the button is only supposed to open hp woreless manager but i've had a couple of CQ60s that i needed to press the button to make wireless work and a few that i didn't. if you have broadband you should have a yellow cablr supplied with your router, stick one end in your laptop (it's only fit in one place) and the other end in your router. that will connect you to wired internet

I'm connected to a wireless network but unable to get internet explorer to connect to the internet. what do i do?


The WiFi software that is embeded into the OS does not work very well. Fortunately digitalgadget.com has a download that somewhat fixes this problem fairly well. The new download is not totally goof proof, but you can work with it.

Go to: http://www.digitalgadgets.com/netbooks/update.html and download the indicated update. You can copy it to a thumb drive and connect the thumb drive to your Sylvania , find it under My Computer and then copy it to your
desktop and run it from there.

Toshiba portege A600 notebook. wireless


unless you have a wireless router in your home; the msg "windows cannot find any wireless networks"

means any network in your area is too far away, or has a signal so weak your laptop is not picking it up as a viable source.

visit . www.filehippo.com and DL a file called Ccleaner. Run this program - it will clean all your internet caches and junk files, then run the registry cleaner. Reboot.
This can keep you from connecting.

Also try moving to different areas in your home and refreshing your wireless search.

if you are worried your wireless card may not be working properly, take it to a place like mcdonalds, or anywhere that has free wi-fi offered. if you still can not pick up a signal there you have narrowed it down to your wireless adapter.

you can also try this little program. Easy Wi-fi radar found here

Connecting to woreless internet connection


Be sure you use same security protocol on your PC than in your WLAN:
WEP or WPA or WPA2 protocol
Passphrase (PSK ) or Password
TKIP or AES.
Use same Key.Passphrase on your notebook as in your Access point.
Check if your Access point/router has access list enabled: either you disable it in your AP either you add your PC MAC address to the list.

HP pavilion dv1000 is not compatable with ATT woreless in the home. The computer if in range will shut down and reboot continually. Works with other wireless systems.


uninstall the software look for updated compatable drivers,or once pc has started go to control panel select administrative tools , services , and scroll down to wzc(windows zero config)
select it and start it.close all box's and now you can use wifi using window based drivers(cos its the devices program(manager)that is incompatable not the actual device and the device is installed but its program disabled.

Compaq presario wireless button no longer working


There is a mechanical problem with the R3000 wireless button and volume-down button where they seem to push fine but are in fact failing to make electrical contact. I know of two work-arounds.
* Try pushing the button with a capped pen, gently at first, and then with increasing pressure. (Not so hard you break the plastic, please!) I suspect this gives the buttons just enough extra "oomph" that contact is established.
OR
* Push up on the battery compartment while pressing the buttons. If the battery is in, you can acheive this same effect by putting your laptop on a table and popping up the screen, then applying downwards pressure on that corner of the laptop body while pushing the button. I suspect this aligns things properly so that the button is able to depress just a hair further.

You may even find that these actions "loosen things up" enough to cause the buttons to work like new for a little while. I hope this works for anyone reading this!
