Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook
Well to start if off, it isn't my wireless because this happens to my main computer also, I've tried phoning my ISP but they were no help all they done was got me to load the bbc website, and left me there - soon after... it DCed again!
According to some diagnostics its a DNS error.
I've tried resetting up my modem - didn't work, I've tried turning it off for 10 seconds... didn't work, then I've tried for 15 minutes - also didn't work.
This has been going on for the past 3 days and is highly irritating.
PLEASE help! Also here are 2 screen shots of the diagnostics - if I'm allowed to post them
If you have any firewall or anti-virus software installed , check them that they don't block a port etc, if they don't , then I would suggest to phone your service provider, get the DNS addresses from them and enter them manually into either your WLAN connection or LAN connection...let me know if you don't come right then we can make antoher plan....Regards...Techmor

Welcome to fixya
I have a solution for this
Follow these steps for your cell phone
Here are the recommended steps to connect to a wireless base router 1. Check and remove power from both your router and the DSL ROUTER/CABLE ROUTER MODEM 2. Wait one complete minute until applying power to modem then wait one minute before applying power to wireless router. 3. Ensure you have green lights across both devices, specifically, the recieved and sent lights. These same lights will tend to blink rapidly when there is active data, at times this will still blink, and a DNS error will prevent you from connecting to the internet. If this is the case, call your ISP Internet service provider 4. Check your authentication Security key on your router first, then check all your wireless devices to ensure they are on the same network name, key, and channel with the same type of encryption as the router 5. Start one device at a time and check for connectivity, if your still experiencing a problem, check the settings on all your wireless adapters, device drivers, internet browser settings, firewalls and proceed. 6. still have problems, connect a rj45 cable from the router directly to your computer to at least see if your wireless settings are bad or if the router may be bad. 7. Contact your ISP to determine if your receiving singal 8. Avoid using a splitter or parital power backup for yours routers 9. Still having problems, change your wireless router only after your ISP changes their faulty modem 10.Attempt the same process when setting up your new wireless router and or modem
