Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Bought a compaq 6710b. The wireless connection stability is very poor. I can find my wireless network at home on Vista platform, but the connection drops out after several seconds and is not able to find the connection again. Strangely when the wireless connection is switched on this PC, it also negatively effects the rest of the wireless connections in the home and they "drop out" / Stop working.

Hi there
if you are seeing the network and are able to connect to it but it is getting dropped normally this wouyld lead to the signal not being that strong you can try to move the computer it doesnt take tot much to change the signal strength and see if the signal get' s better it should tell you how your signal is ok

Same problem hp wireless assitant not working


Troubleshoot your wireless network with HP mobile and wireless solutions

update (flash) the Bios
install all the Nvidia updates (chipset and Video)
Audio
Modem (only if you use this to access the internet or possibly will in the future - ie on vacation)
Hp software updates (Quick Launch and Q/L Critical update)
Essential Vista updates (these are the ONLY Microsoft related updates I installed)
Finally the Wireless Driver update (in my case the Broadcom W/L Card)
and the little blue light came back !!! Even better was that it turns off when it's supposed to and back on when it is supposed to.
Wireless Works - I tested by connecting to multiple different networks for stability (just go to a couple of different MacDonald's, Starbuck's and Safeway stores to try this if you cannot find available networks in your neighbourhood) You don't have to connect to them, just get to the point where it checks for the passcode/network key and you've successfully communicated with the router and this will count as connecting to a wireless device.
i have TURNED OFF ALL WINDOWS UPDATES, this is important because it is an update to the operating system (Windows Vista) that is causing the problems in the first place. (Not a conspiracy between HP/Compaq and Microsoft to cause you to pay for expensive parts that don't fix the problem or go out and pay for a full copy of Windows Vista and have it installed professionally)
I used to work for the retailer that sold me this laptop for my step daughter (and HP authourized repair centre) and now i work for a Network and Systems Support HelpDesk so i can safely say that you don't need to fall for the warning from Microsoft about needing to keep your operating system constantly updated because if you connect to a Wireless network in the fireplace you are behind a firewall and thus protected by the nasty little things floating around out there. If you are worried about the security concerns about your browser (internet explorer) the download Firefox - it is built on a much safer code and is regularily updated as well and won't leave you open to installing the nasty microsoft code that breaks your laptop

Connect another laptop using Vista operation system to my wireless network


thank u for the clarification..if it says "low signal strength" then u will have to reduce the distance between the laptop and the wireless router..also please ensure there are no big objects,walls etc between the two..u can get better signal strength by doing these..also other nearby wireless networks and cordless phones can hamper with signal..hope it helps!regards!

My HP wireless doesn't work? I don't have wireless connection on my compaq laptop anymore.


check your wireless adapter is on... the switch is on the front of your laptop and you should show a blue light when it's on, also go into device manager and see network adapters.. you should have 2 (the wire one built-in and your wireless network adapter.. if you only have one network adapter, check the front and see if the light indicating the status of your wireless network adapter is amber.. (if it's showing amber and you're sure it's in the on position you may have a motherboard problem and you may need to send the system back (I just had one of those with a compaq computer and since the item was within warranty the fixed in a week)

if your wireless adapter light is blue and you see your wireless adapter in device manager follow this instructions and you should be ok,

Problem with connection of networking and VOIP.


Go to your Run program on the computer that your are having connection problems with. Type cmd.exe in the box. When your DOS page appears, type in ipconfig/ release. Be sure to use a space between the / and the word release. After it releases, type in ipconfig/ renew, using the space as well. Close out of your DOS. Recheck your internet connection. Before you recheck it though, make sure that your computer's wireless password, if you are using any, are the same as your wireless router's password. Hope this helps.

Connection problem


don't shout at me, but many of the older compaq laptops did not come with a wireless nic installed, and the ones that did sometimes did not support G let alone N.

If able you need to check that the Wireless NIC if installed/avaliable supports your wireless router or most likly the otherway round.

firstly I would try removing any USB wireless adapters that you may have in use from one of your other computers and try it in the compaq, if sucessful you know that it is not your setup of your home network at fault.
