You will need to find out what wireless network card you have installed ( make and model ) and then go to the manufacturers website and download the relevant windows vista driver which will need installing or install the drivers from the installation disc for your laptop.

Find your original Operating System Disk (XP or Vista)
If you don't have them you can buy them from HP for about $5 S&H.

put in the disk and reboot/turn on the notebook follow the on screen instructions to Format and Install your Operating System.

You will then need to you a second computer (or do this first) to get the drivers for you network card. Once you have this one go to HP's website to download everything.

I need to establish home network using my laptop as host


Are all the computers on you LAN running Vista? If so, (or even if not) which version?

Computer networks work best when the computers on those networks have a Network Operating System (NOS) installed, rather than a desktop operating system (OS). The best way to tell the difference is with the word PRO on the former or HOME on the latter.

Vista on home networks brings its own basket of troubles as well, particularly when connecting to non Vista computers.

Having laid all that out there for you, let's talk networks. You don't give many details, so, I'll make some assuptions based on new equipment (routers).

The best way to install a router, is to have the primary home computer connected via an ethernet cable. This allows the programming of the router to enable "cloning" of the MAC address. The reason to do this is so that the ISP (DSL or Cable company) will always appear that there is only one pc connected. This enhances your security.

Once that is done, the security feature can be adjusted on the router to either enable it, or not, and if you do (recommended) then write down your passphrase so that you can always remember it.

At this point, we are talking wireless, and if you are using wires, everything should already be functioning. With the wireless however, you will need to sit with your pc and tell the operating system to connect, then type in the security phrase when asked.

In XP, this is quite simple, by clicking on the wireless icon in the systray (down by the clock).

In Vista, however, you must first turn on network discovery. Right click on Networks, and choose properties. In the windows that opens, watch the information bar at the top, which should actually tell you network discover is not on, and to turn it on, click here.

Once the discovery is turned on, assuming that everything on your pc is functioning properly, you should see the network in the window, and be offered a chance to click on it to connect. Then type in your security phrase to connect to the LAN.

There is a lot going on with networks, and it is very difficult to help you set one up without a back and forth dialogue. I hope I helped you some.

good luck.

Wireless card not detecting!!!!


I had simalar problems where I could not detect my wireless network even though I could get on the internet I could not see the other computer on my network. I finally after trying everyone else's advice which did not work, found a program called Network Magic. You can purchase it from www.purenetworks.com for $30.00. It took care of all of my network problems and even shows a nice map of how my network is setup and what computers are logged onto the network and even what software like Windows Xp or Windows Vista is on that computer. It will even generate daily logs if you want to show any problems with the network.

Hp dv2000 error code 104- unsupported wireless network device detected system halted


The user has not described the operating system in use.
However this problem generally occurs due to incompartible hardware. in this case it is ever stated. ie. Network interface Device. I suggest you disconnect the Network devices including cables, then try to reboot.
If not descibe how far the booting process gets and type of network hardware connected and operating system to your system

Vista & Xp on same printer


You need to download the drivers from HP website for VISTA.
If you wish to work printer in networking then you can also add printer in the Laptop by that method.
Let me know more how you need to go for ( since if your XP is a desktop, then I would recommend you to keep the printer connect with it directly and just use a LAN cable for your Laptop.)
