Have you reset the modem first then the router, after doing this restart computer. If you still can't get online: I would first bypass your router or hard wire (Plug Ethernet cable into router or modem) To make sure your computer is able to surf the internet. If you are able to get online, then i would go to Network & Sharing center and on the left side click on (Vista) "Manage Network Connections" and on (7 & 8) click on "Change adapter setting" - Left click on 'Wireless Network Connection' first click on diagnose and see if Windows can fix the issue. If it fixes the isse then your good to go. If it does not then Left click on 'Wireless Network Connection' and go to 'properties' - Check to make sure there is Check mark on -Internet Protocol Version 4 (Tcp/Ip4)- Highlight this (TCP/IP4) and click on Properties. You should have a dot on the Obtain an IP address automatically and Obtain DNS Server address automatically. Try this first and if does not work let me know please put in what Windows your using and what browser and message your getting? And if you can get online by local area connection which is Ethernet hard wired connection?

How to conect with wireless internet


The Network and Sharing Center in Microsoft* Windows Vista* can be used to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If an Internet connection is not automatically made by the operating system, you may need to contact your access point (AP), broadband wireless router manufacturer, or Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Set Up a Secure Wireless Connection to the Internet


These steps assume that your network adapter; AP or router; and cable, DSL or another type of modem have already been physically connected and configured. They allow you to create a new connection and configure it accordingly.

Follow these steps to set up a secure wireless connection to the Internet.

Note: If a wireless profile does not exist, you will need to create a secure wireless profile before you can set up a wireless connection to the Internet.

1. Access the Network and Sharing Center.

2. Select Set up a connection or network.

3. Click Connect to the Internet.

4. Click Next.

5. Select Wireless. At this point, if the network(s) that are listed say that the network settings do not match the network requirements, as shown in Figure 1, create a secure wireless profile and then follow the steps again.

6. Select a network and click Connect. If you are not connected to the Internet, you may need to contact your AP/router manufacturer or ISP.

Access the Network and Sharing Center


To access the Network and Sharing Center, use one of the following methods:
  • Start » Control Panel » Network and Internet » Network and Sharing Center
  • Start » Network » Network and Sharing Center
  • Right-click the network system tray icon (the icon that displays two computer monitors) » Network and Sharing Center

Hp pavilion a330n Internet Explorer won't connect.


check your IP Adress settings are correct for this machine,
Go to start ,then click on run,Type CMD,Then type IPCONFIG/ALL.it will show you a list of all the devices connected to your machine and your local network,

Have you got LAN & WLAN adaptors on board?
this will explain your message,
you will have to set the ip settings on each adaptor
ie LAN 192.168.1.2 and WLAN 192.168.1.3
This wiil help determine which adaptor is to be used when connecting to the network and the internet.

If your using wireless on computer to connect to the internet then run your wizard to help setup the connection

Same for the wired LAN ,use your wizard

The settings for your modem can be reset easily and your ISP will help get you connected to the net because you already have an account with them,

I just got a HP Pavilion dv4000 what will i need to have internet access at a motel or somewhere that it detects wireless networks I dont even know where to start the basics would be a big help thanks


In a lot of cases they are setup to find wireless signals automatically. If you are in a place with a wifi, you should see an icon in the bottom right of the screen. If you click on that it should show you what networks are available and if they are unsecured, which most motels are, you can click on "connect" and that should do it. If you go on as "public" it protects you a little better. Make sure you always update your virus software when roaming.

Internet disconnection on hp dv 6500


When the internet connection goes down what does your network and sharing center say the status is? does it says access: local and internet? or does it say access: local only?
do any other pcs have this problem on your network?
if this is the only pc having this issue the best thing to do is contact Vista support while you are still under warranty so they can troubleshoot the issue further... more than likely simply need to update the drivers for the network connections... this is a known issue they have had in the past... its not your ISP if all other pcs are fine... its just one of the lovely side affects of Vista..
GOOD LUCK!!!
