My HP laptop has been updating at least twice daily, and each time it takes around 6 or more hours for it to complete. When it is complete, I can not get onto the internet. I am using and Ethernet Cable to connect to my school's internet from my dorm, and I am also using my school's wireless net. Both are being recognized, but are not connecting.
Hi! 1. I think your connection is temporarily blocked by university. (Have you used P2P clients like bittorrent, Vuze. Usu. Uni block ur account because of excessive data usage). Call them and make sure they didnt clock ur access. 2. Mosttimes installation of new antivirus, firewall mess up your connection. so then you have to uninstall and then reinstall your firewall again. 3. Can you please go to one of your friends place and try to log in using non Uni/ school network. If it works it again prove your account is suspended. 4. Go to HP website using other computer. under hp customer support you can find latest Wireless and Lan drivers for your laptop. Then download it and install it to your computer. Then It will sove your problem. If non of these dint work please let me know. I will try my best to help!

Check to make sure that the Windows Update is turned on.
Check the Settings to make sure that the check for updates is set and set the options for when to check and update. At this time you can also have the system check for updates.
Let me know if this solves the problem. Thanks.
i had the same problem with my sisters eeepc so this is what i did
1. if u can: connect the eeepc to your router (internet box) using the Ethernet cable. the local area connection should then connect automatically if not connect through the network program on Linux.
2. if you are connected go to settings tab and then add or remove software
3. wait for the eeepc to find the new software (may take a bit of time), once it has found all new possible updates go to the settings tab in the add/remove software program and scroll down until you find Wireless update/patch or something similar.
4. click install and the ok, it will then dowload the new update (don't take long) and install it
5. once the update has completed it will ask you to reboot the eeepc do this and when you log back on click on the wireless network icon
6. find your SSID and enter any security and whatever
Microsoft security updates have disabled wireless cards in the past, preventing systems that connect via wireless card to connect. One way around this is to revert to a point before the update or uninstall the particular update that is causing the problem through "Add Remove Programs" and usually within a few days Microsoft will have an update with a fix available. Though this is the first I've heard of such a problem recently, it's not unheard of.
TiVo-powered DVRs will attempt to make the daily call at approximately the same time of day as it was last able to connect successfully. This means that if you set up your DVR initially around 2 PM, or if it failed during an overnight call and retried during the day (and got through one day around 2), it will continue trying at that time every day.
You are not able to use the phone line while it connects -- it uses the same type of modem that your computer uses to connect.
The good news is that you can indeed reschedule the next attempt, but it's not exactly a setting you can change -- stay up late, and force it to connect manually overnight. If it completes normally, it will make the next attempt the next night at the same time, on its own.
