Network adapter hp6505f


If your computer has a wireless network adapter, Windows will automatically detect wireless networks in range of your computer. You can see a list of wireless networks that Windows has detected in Connect to a Network.

  • Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon (eff2d36c-9e0d-4d1a-9859-3af14fa4ccfc_73.jpg or da12251d-1e9a-4032-afae-009876c6c5a3_80.jpg) in the notification area.

If Windows doesn't detect a network that you think is in range of your computer, it could be because of one of the following reasons:

  • The wireless switch on your computer is turned off.

    Many laptops have a wireless switch on the front or side of the computer. If your computer has a switch, make sure it's turned on. Some computers also use a function key combination to turn the switch on or off. Check the information that came with your computer for details on locating the wireless switch.

  • Your computer is too far from the wireless router or access point.

    Move your computer closer to the router or access point. If the computer is portable, try moving it around to determine the range of the wireless signal and the best place to use the computer.

    If you can't get closer to the router or access point, consider buying and installing an external antenna for your wireless network adapter. Many wireless network adapters are set up so that you can attach an external antenna to them, which provides better reception than a built-in antenna. Check the information that came with your wireless network adapter to see if you can install an additional antenna.

  • The wireless router or access point is turned off or isn't working properly.

    There are two things to try:

    • Make sure the router or access point is turned on and that the wireless signal light is illuminated.

    • Reset the router or access point by unplugging it, waiting at least 10 seconds, and then plugging it back in.

Trying to connect my ps3 to my wireless router. Error code after automatic access connection says no connection.


PS3 is not finding your router.
Make sure you choose wireless network under network settings and choose scan for wireless network.
Make sure SSID on router is broadcasting and not hidden.
Make sure router is broadcasting in G or MIXED mode.
Try removing wireless security on the router (open mode) and testing to see if connection can be made.
If connection can be made without security then try with security on.
Place ps3 closer to the router or connect with ethernet cable to verify connectivity.
Verifiy router is working by connecting a laptop or other device to the internet/router.

Could you connect to the network when hard wired? If not then check the D-link and make sure the LAN set up is correct. If you could then you know the problem is with the wifi only.

When to look under Device Manager does it show that the wireless adapter is working?

Do you see any other networks available? If so you have a mismatch between your router set up and your computer network settings.

Go to NETWORK CONNECTIONS, Right Click on Wireless connections, PROPERTIES. Look to see if Microsoft Client, File and Printer Sharing, and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP 4) is checked. Then click on TCP/IP , PROPERTIES and look at the settings. The GATEWAY must be the same IP as your D-Link, The default IP for the router is 192.168.0.50. If it was set up with a different IP address make sure the wifi gateway is that same address.

If you put in a "KEY" when setting up the wireless router, WEP or WAP make sure you use same when trying to get on the network. You won't get that far if you're not seeing the network on list at all.


Try setting the machine in the same room with the D-Link. Will it detect the network now? If so consider interference with the signal ie metal in the wall such as a furnace.

These are the most common reasons for problems so try these first.

How do you get internet on a PSP?


Hi ana01,

Connecting your PSP to the internet is just like connecting your computer to a router. First to consider is having an access point. So what is an access point? Access point is your router. If you wanted to get started going online using your PSP I suggest trying the following steps below:

1. Just turn on your PSP as well as your WLAN/wiresless.

2. Use the left and right directional button to find "Network Setting".

3. Now look for "Infrastracture Mode".

4. Please select "New Connection" and name it.

5. Go to "WLAN Settings" then select "Scan".

6. Your PSP will now detect your router.

7. Navigate to "WLAN security setting". Just leave the option "NONE", If you dont have an encryption in your Router set up.

8. But if have an encryption in your Router. Then put your WEP or WPA security key.

9. Go to "Address Settings". Select "Easy".

10. Navigate to "Setting List". Check if your setting is correct.

11. Go to the next page then save your setting by pressing x. Then press x again once you get a message that says "Save Completed. Test Connection".

12. Next message would say "connecting to access point." The next should say "obtaining IP address".

You already established a connection and you can now browse the net using your PSP.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How can i take internet in my psp


The PSP is more than a gaming platform. It has WiFi connectivity, and that means that setting up PSP Internet is possible, just like on any computer. The WiFi feature is intended primarily to be used for upgrading software and for downloading games. But you can go several steps further than that, and it isn't difficult to do either.
You need to have access to an Internet connection first and foremost. This can either be at home where you really need a wireless router, or use you can try accessing a public WiFi hotspot like your local Starbucks or wherever.
The most common home set up is an Ethernet cable running from the computer to the DSL or cable modem, which in turn is connected to the telephone line. By installing a wireless router between the computer and the DSL or cable modem, you should be able to connect your PSP to the Internet too.
Of course, setting up PSP Internet isn't just as easy as that! And if you don't have a home Internet connection of any kind, then you'll have to find a WiFi access point that will allow you to connect. This should be reasonably easy in most medium to big cities. But if you live in a small one-horse town way back in the sticks, then maybe, maybe not.
The PSP also needs WiFi access that is the 802.121b wireless networking protocol.
Hmmm... I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, that's it! Way too technical for me! But hold on, it isn't.
This protocol is, thankfully, the world's most popular one. So the chances are excellent that if you find a suitable public WiFi access point, it will be the good old 802.121b wireless networking protocol.
Most people find problems when they come to the more technical bits. Finding the Network Settings, choosing a New Connection, making sure it's Infrastructure Mode - it's all too much for many who try it. Then there's the WLAN Settings to access, a scan to implement for an SSID of any access points nearby, hoping it's not using WEP encryption!
Time to think again...
This isn't rocket science, though some may think it is.
You need, in this order:
1. To have some kind of a proven Internet connection.
2. Select the Infrastructure Mode in Network Settings and start a New Connection.
3. Access the WLAN Settings and initiate a scan to search for suitable access points.
4. Select a suitable access point that is not encrypted.
5. Test the Connection and enjoy!

PS3 can't detect access point


i have some solutions..
1. if there's lots of walls between the router and your ps3 it may not detect the signal. i had a very weak signal until i moved some stuff around.
2. you can manually type in your wireless name and i think it should at least reconize it, and maybe connect.
3. make sure theres no firewalls or anything to block other connections from entering your signal.
thats all i can say, sorry im not a tech guy-only 17!

Not detecting any wireless networks


You have not mentioned having a wireless router or access point to serve as the hub on an infrastructure network. I you have a router please let me know -- the instructions for the solution changes.

The following is an article to create an ad hoc network between wireless cards without a wireless access point or a router. If you ignore the steps about connecting to the internet with a wired connection and the internet sharing instructions. This will allow your machines with wireless adapters to communicate with each other (assuming the operate on a common band). The article goes on to indicate one machine with a wired connection can act as the "router" for the other two when it is on to allow them share internet access with the wired machine (the wired machine also needs a wireless card for this to work).
