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.

Cant access wireless network


Wireless zero configuration is the feature of Windows XP that allows Windows to detect the available wireless networks and automatically connect to the most preferred wireless network.

It is enabled by the Wireless Zero Configuration service in Windows XP. It provides auto wireless network detection when you switch on the computer.
Follow the steps below to verify that the service is running:
1. Go to Start and right click My Computer. Select and click Manage.
2. Computer Management window will appear. Under Services and Applications, select Services.
3. Check for the service Wireless Zero Configuration. Make sure that it is started and that the startup type is set to automatic.
computer-management.jpg4. If it isn't, double-click the service. If the startup type is not set to automatic, click on the dropdown arrow and and change it to automatic. Click OK at last.
autostart-wireless-zero.jpgIf your wireless adapter driver does not support wireless auto onfiguration, you will notice the following:
- The network adapter does not appear as a wireless network adapter in Network Connections. It appears as a LAN adapter, similar to an Ethernet connection.
- The properties of the wireless connection do not have a Wireless Networks tab.
- You do not receive a Windows XP notification bar message indicating that wireless networks are available.
To get the most out of your Windows XP wireless experience, you should contact wireless adapter manufacturer to obtain the latest version of the drivers that support this XP feature.
If not, you must manually configure wireless network settings using the configuration software supplied with the wireless network adapter.

Please follow this steps carefully

Turn on your internal wireless card?
If your wireless card is built in to your computer, there may be a switch on computer that turns the card off and on. When new from the store, these switches are often in the "off" position. They can also accidentally get switched off during use. Find the switch (often near a symbol that looks like a microphone or radio tower emitting radio signals), and turn it on. The card should now find wireless networks in the area and connect.
.

Find the scrldcolville network?
If your wireless device is properly installed, your computer should automatically start scanning for networks in the area and will inform you that there are wireless networks present. If not, you can scan for networks in the area manually.
*To bring up the Wireless Network Connections menu, go to the Start Menu (in the lower left-hand corner of your screen, choose "Settings," then chose "Network Connections," and finally, choose "Wireless Network Connection." Clicking on this option in the menu should bring up a window. In the upper left hand corner of the window under the heading of "Network Tasks" there should be an option that says "Refresh Network List." Click on this option to search for wireless connections. Choose scrldcolville, hit the "Connect" button in the lower right hand corner and enter the passkey to connect.

Enter the passkey correctly?
If the passkey is entered incorrectly, the computer will appear to connect to the internet, but will not actually connect. If you think you may have entered the passkey incorrectly, disconnect from the scrldcolville network (see steps above in #5) and then reconnect. Often, as you manually reconnect to the network, the computer will remember the passkey and a small window will pop up, showing the password as a line of dots. Re-enter the passkey correctly before connecting.
(#6, cont.): Sometimes, your computer will not allow you the option of re-entering the passkey when you reconnect to the network. If this happens, bring up the Wireless Network Connections menu. Click on the "Change advanced settings" option under the "Related Tasks" heading. Another window saying "Wireless Network Connection Properties" should pop up. Click on the "Wireless Networks" tab at the top of the window. Under the "Preferred Networks" heading, there is a box that lists all wireless connections your computer has ever used. Click on the scrldcolville network to select it. Now hit the "Remove" button just below the box, then hit the "Ok" button. This will make your computer forget the scrldcolville network and the bad passkey. Bring up the Wireless Network Connections menu again and connect to scrldcolville .Be sure to enter the passkey correctly.

Allow your computer to obtain an IP address automatically?
Be sure that your computer is set to obtain IP addresses automatically and that it does not have one assigned manually. To do this, bring up the Wireless Networks Connections menu .Click on the "Properties" button. Here, you will see a list under the heading "This connection uses the following items." Scroll down the list until you see an item named "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)." Select this item and hit the "Properties" button just below the list. This will bring up a new window. In order to connect with the library's wireless device, you must have the option "Obtain an IP Address Automatically" selected (ditto for the DNS server address). If you are set with a manual IP address, you can click the button to obtain your IP address automatically (ditto for the DNS server address.) Be aware that this changes how your computer interacts with other networks. If you need a static IP address on other networks, you may have to reset your IP address again later. However, your computer cannot connect to the library's wireless network unless it obtains its IP address automatically from the library's wireless device.
Make the Windows wireless configuration your default configuration?
In many computers, Windows acts as the default wireless network configuration program. However, if you have an external wireless card, or if your computer has a secondary program enabling it to connect to the wireless network, you may discover Windows will not recognize your wireless connection program and visa versa. Sometimes, if you have a non-Windows program that runs your wireless card (for example, a Linksys driver for an external Linksys wireless card), the non-Windows program will connect to the wireless device, but Windows will not recognize that this secondary program has connected. You will need to allow Windows to control the wireless configuration in order for your computer to fully recognize the wireless connection. On way to solve this problem is to tell the secondary program to "stand down," as it were.
On some computers, an icon for your secondary wireless program will appear in the lower right-hand corner of the taskbar on your desktop. You can click on this icon to open the program options. Certain programs will give you the option to switch to Windows as the default manager of your wireless connection. This will allow you to use the Windows Wireless Network Connections menu to make changes to your wireless connection.

Lights wont turn off even if netwrk wires are unplugged..


You'll have to hold your reset button down for atleast 10 seconds, or even more, then you'll have to reconfigure you entire connnection at address 192.168.2.1.
However before doing that, try and power down the whole unit for a minute or so and power it back up, then go to you computer's wireless connection and renew your IP address [that's if you have automatically assigned addresses]. otherwise you might have to check that you router and computer are operating on the same page [ by this I mean, if your router is assigning automatic IP, make sure your computer is not set to use a static IP, In my years of network, this has always been problem I have experienced on some routers]

I am trying to connect to the wireless in my new apartment. I have entered my network and password and that has worked fine. However, under Wireless Network Connection Status (i can get there by clicking...


On the Support tab - what does it say the "Address Type" ?
If its DHCP then check that on the TCP/IP properties;
If on "automatic IP address" then it wont take any entered IP address.

Do not put any IP address.

Check that "Obtain an IP address automatically" is checked and also "Obtain DNS server address automatically" is also checked. On wireless network tab check "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings".

On preferred network check that your wireless network is there, if not add it and move it up

Wireless switch


if your wireless zero is turn off then you do this. Go to start then to control panel. There you should see administrative tools. Once you click onto that double click onto services. This will open a page for you to scroll down to wireless zero configuration. Make sure that is set to automatic and it's started. Often a restart of the wireless zero fixes it Also make sure windows is configuring your wireless network. To do this go to the control panel and then to your network connections. Right click on your wireless network card and then left click onto properties. Make sure the check mark is in use windows to configure my network settings. This should work for you then. Let me know if that works for you
