Question about HP Compaq Presario V6000T 15.4" Notebook PC Laptop

Open Question

I have an HP V6000 that stalls on aquiring network address. It is not a problem with the router as my Toshiba Laptop connects fine. When I try to renew the Ip address I receive a message saying, "Unable to connect to the DNS server. Request has timed out". Not sure what the problem is. My home network is listed and shows connected with excellent signal strength, but cannot read the IP address. Any help would be appreciated.

Laptop cannot aquire network address from wireless router


If you connect the computer to the router , it works.
That means the wired connection is OK.
Open the set up page of the router check the wireless settings of the router.
I think your network is secured and you are not typing the correct network key.
just open the router set up and check the wireless settings .
Make sure that the DHCP server on the router is enabled

Hi I have my desktop connected fine through the yellow cable, but need to know if I can connect my laptop wirelessly? if so how. sorry if question sounds silly but new beginner!


From ur laptop click "Start" then "Connect to" then "wireless network connection" then "view wireless networks" Your signal is probably the strongest one. Double click on it and it should aquire the network address automatically. Your in business!

My hp lap top wont connect to the internet through the usb the ethernet or wireless and it was working fine until 24 hours ago. I think it may be the network adapter. I re installed the driver for it but...


Try turning off the wireless router fo 30 secs and then power it up again. When the LEDs light up, then boot up the HP laptop.
If this doesn't work, then check the laptop to see if the wireless router issued the HP laptop with an IP address. to do this - click on Start - Run - type cmd and press Enter. This will open a DOS command box, then type ipconfig and press Enter.
If the IP address returns 0.0.0.0 then the wireless router didn't issue the HP with an IP address and either the wireless router is faulty or the wireless card is faulty or it has lost its LAN configuration.
If the wireless router LEDs are all on, try connecting a LAN cable direct to the LAN port on the router and the laptop to see if it connects to the Internet. If it connects then install the latest wireless card driver and configure it with the wireless router's settings.

Wont connect to belkin 54g with wpa security applied


Please try using Wireless 'G' mode only in the router. Also, try using 'TKIP' and not TKIP+AES for encryption.

Please rate this solution, if it works for you.

Laptop can't aquire IP address


This sounds to be a compatibility issue with either the wireless software or wireless card. Check to see if there are any updated drivers for the wireless card at IBM's support site. If there aren't any or the card still doesn't work after the updated drivers are installed, then you might try a different/newer internal wireless card, or a universal external wireless card for use with your home system.

Setup


If that is the report that the laptop gives for an IP address, then you have to change the IP address settings.
Go into your network settings, and tell it to automatically aquire an address, and DNS.
Once you click OK, it should sense the DCHP from the router.
If the IP is already set to automatically aquire, then the router needs to be reset to factory defaults. That should put you back to the 192.168.2.xxx settings.

Cant Aquire IP Address Wirelessly


try this... connect the laptop directly to the router using a cable. get into the router interface and disable the wep security. Once it is disabled try connecting the laptop. your computer will ask you that network is not secured and ask if you want to connect anyway. just connect your laptop without the WEP key, if it connects, just go ahead and enable the security again. hope this helps.

Wireless configure laptop


You may be getting a little mixed up; the SSID is the dispayable name of the router over a network and the code you may be refering to is the WEP or passkey for security. First go into your routers settings and ensure that the DHCP is enabled to automatically give the laptop an IP address. Check your laptop wireless adapter/reciever is set in the properties to obtain IP adress automatically. Turn off any encryption you have running on the router and restart both router and laptop. When laptop boots it should again find all the wireless networks in you locality, then click on your network and click connect. If all works fine go into router again and then set up security key and note whether it is an 'open' or 'shared' network access as you may need to input this into your laptop if it is unable to reconnect after the restart. Also if your wifi signal is relatively low, it will not allow a connection to the internet as it is unable to send data at a low signal rate. If you originally ran the router via an RJ45 network cable, you may need to clear the dns from your laptop, click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns and restart your laptop to give it a new ip address and dns address.
