How, then, are you connecting to the internet at this time to write for help? From another computer?

Purchase/acquire what is known as a "thumb drive", a little USB device that will hold files.

From a working computer: go to http://www.hp.com , click on support and drill down to your computer type. Download the driver in question to the thumb drive.

Unplug thumb drive from 1st PC.

Boot 2nd ("errant") PC.

Plug thumb drive into 2nd PC.

Run X:\blah\setup.exe or whatever the name of the program is that installs the wireless drivers.

Cha-ching!

Network cable not properly plugged in or may be broken


which OS do you have? XP, Vista, 7, etc. you must have a wireless adapter in your PC to use wireless and it must be enabled.
if not wireless, then you must have an ethernet slot with cable(CAT5) inserted from internet modem/router. if you have a laptop then you have wireless available. there is a key on keyboard to turn wireless on. you have to have your Network assigned to the wireless internet provider too. if you have cable(cat5) connected to a modem or router/modem connection, and you see an ethernet icon in your lower right corner window(looks like a little computer display), then you have an ethernet connection. if not then either the cable is bad or the modem/router is not producing a connection to pc. thats alot i know but i have little knowledge about your internet connection on your pc. you have not given that to me to use

We have two computers and we are trying to set up a network so both computers can use internet, the host computer has windows vista and coble modem the other computer has windows xp and is about 275'...


Hi.
You are going to need two things for this to work.
First, you need a wireless router, these usually run about $50-$60.
Then after you get the router, you need a wireless usb adapter, so that the xp computer can receive the signal from the router.

Connect the lan cable from the cable modem that is currently attached to the vista computer to the router, then connect a lan cable from the router to the vista computer.

The xp computer is easier.
After you have the router hooked up, just plug the usb adapter into the xp computer, install any software that comes with it, and after it install the drivers it will be able to connect to your router, and have wireless internet.

Make sure that you know the name of your router, that way you are connecting to the right one.

I hope this helps you out, and have a good day.

Cannot connect to wireless network with Vista


I don not think there is a problem with your laptop. It connects to your network when you use the Ethernet cable, because the wired network is yours. As to the 4 networks to which you are trying to connect with the wireless, they must be secured as they should be. If you want to access them (and why would you since you have your own Internet connection), you will have to ask authorization from the networks owners (your neighbors). If they agree, they will provide you with all the information you require to log on and share their bandwidth.

No net connectivity


If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible on the network map, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

To set up Network Sharing between XP and Windows Vista, please note that File and Printer Sharing is different in Windows Vista than from the setup in Windows XP.


On a computer running Windows XP, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Network Connections.
Click Local Area Network Connection, click Properties, and then view the list of items used by the network connection.
Ensure that the Link-Layer Topology Discovery Responder check box is selected.

Quick time and Vista with internet problems.


Hi there.
I am working on the assumption that you use Vista but XP is just about the same. This method will also hard reset the wireless drivers back to default settings.
Ok, what i want you to do is right click "computer" select "manage" and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "un-install" the device, reboot the PC 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

keep me informed please

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Vista wireless networking with 2 computers cabled to router


To disable the ( redundant ) wireless connection, right click ' My network places' click properties, in the dialog right click your wireless connection, click disable. YMMV in Vista. There are several ways to disable an adapter, might try Windows Help.
If your "someone" installed Norton AV that's what degraded your performance. Remove it and pick one of the free ones like Avast or AVG. If the previous AV wasn't removed properly you're going to see a slowdown.

Installing windows xp on hp pavilion dv 6516 tx


I'm not sure solution #1 is very explanatory, so....

IF you want to install XP on your computer, Windows XP will load most of the drivers you need automatically.
For the drivers that are specific to your HP pavilion
you will be able to download device drivers from HP website
or, request a driver CD

When XP is installed [assuming you or someone can do that]
you can:
Go to the 'My Computer' icon [right-click]
Choose:
  • 'Properties'
  • Then Choose 'Hardware'
  • Finally, choose 'Device Manager'
Here you will have a list of all your hardware
If you have any drivers that need to be installed, there should be
a yellow (?) question mark by the name of the hardware

Most devices/hardware will be handled by XP SP2
The default drivers will be loaded automatically
For example, your keyboard:

e83fe6a.jpg

Above you see the window that opens if I double-click on
the 'Keyboard' icon.

For XP to function, you only have to worry about the ones
with the yellow (?) question mark

Or, if you want to add a specific driver, like a Video or Sound driver, but you don't see a yellow (?) question mark
you can still install/update the driver at the 'driver' tab
[second tab in the picture above]

If you need more specific help I can do that too
