    I had no problem connecting to the Internet until I loaded HP wireless for my printer. Now I have finally reached a point where I have connection, by using both Intel Pro set / wireless and Windows control, but the connection will not open the Internet.

    go into the device manager and make sure your wireless network adaptor is still being shown in there properly. Also check for yellow question marks.

It seems like the driver files are affected and need to be replaced using the wireless network drvers. You can get them from the hp website. if you're not sure, please specify your laptop model and i'll link to to the driver download page.

My wlan (function/F10) key doesn't work/light stays amber!!!!! No wireless internet/Internet only works when directly plugged into PC.


Check in device manager for the wireless card. Right click 'my computer' select 'properties' click the hardware tab and device manager, it should be listed as a network device. if it's listed update the drivers, it may just be disabled in windows. If it's listed as installed and working correctly in device manager it may be faulty.
you can also try running 'cmd' to lauch the command prompt and typing "ipconfig /all" this will show all available devices in your computer and their state.

Good luck.

I was able to connect to my HP Compaq Presario V2000 Laptop to my WiFi Network using NetGear. When I reconfigured the network I could connect to all other network like Dell Lptop , Nokia Smart Phone and HP...


Hi!

Your Compaq V2000 has an Intel Pro Wireless 2200 BG wireles adapter. (doesn't support N, but that's not the point I think)

If your new network configuration is based on WPA/WPA2 encyption, this adapter has some known problems to establish a connection. It works great with WEP, but not so well with WPA.
Sometimes the issue can be solved by installing the latest versions of drivers and software for the wireless adapter.
If it still doesn't work, a known workaround is to disable via device manager all other network adapters in the computer (ethernet adapter), leaving active only the Intel Pro 2200 wireless adapter.


Hope it helped,

Bogdan

Recently i have installed XP professional on HP Pavillion DV6830US. All the installations went ok. on desktop if i right click and choose refresh then screen is will blink/flash and comes back to normal....


You should have the CD for the devices of your PC. After installation of the OS, you need to install your devices' drivers using that utility CD. If it doesn't came with a CD or it came with a WIN7 utility CD which is not compatible with XP, you need to download it from the internet.
What you have detailed above is an indication that you have not installed your Display Driver yet. If you have already installed your devices and came across with this problem, try uninstalling your Display Driver and install it again.

Internet switches off


First you must be using a wireless connection, if this is so reinstall the drivers for the device. If you are using a hard wired network connection, you can go into device manager and disable the wireless network. In any event the problem is the drivers are either not installed or the wrong drivers are installed for the wireless network. BPCS
